Many families have contacted this site to report how they have lost almost all contact with their loved ones since they became involved with the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).  Most are in complete disbelief over the changes they have seen in their family members over such a short period of time, usually less than three months.  In […]

17.  Never Take Action In The Cult Leaders’ Names The cult leaders are free from all responsibility. To make a request in the cult leader’s name is to blame the cult leader for any ill will that might result. To claim, for example, that “I divorced my wife because the leader told me to” is to refuse responsibility for one’s […]

13.  Never Expose Uncertainty To Those Higher In The Pyramid Eventually, any expression of doubt at all is deemed offense against the cult. To spread one’s misgivings to a higher member is, in effect, a challenge to that member’s own resolve. Such expressions can be allowed up to a point, but ultimately the members must learn that they are the […]

9.  Confusion and Transference By alternating self-interested and random demands, the cult brings its followers into a state of great confusion – they aren’t sure how to please the cult. Sometime leaders will reward members who fail to carry out commands, and punish those who complete them successfully. The CIA suggests using rewards and punishments in a random, illogical manner […]

5.  Positive Results Through Commitment While discovery and introduction are almost always free, the newcomer is told that he will experience satisfaction only when he has made a financial or equivalent commitment. At sales meetings for another of the cults I investigated, writing a check was equated with the first step toward changing one’s life, and new members reported feeling […]

Speaking With WMSCOG Members – “Do you believe the Bible?”

12 on June 14, 2011, 7:44 PM / in Bible Studies, Controversial Points, Non Thought, Thought Reform

I was inspired to write this article because of the overwhelming number of times I am asked this question when discussing World Mission Society Church Of God doctrine.  It is always the same.  If you ask a WMSCOG member a critical question or point out a contradiction in their doctrine, Ahnsahnghong, Zhang Gil Jah, etc., they answer with the question, “Do […]

A friend of mine attended a service at the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) recently and was disturbed by something she heard.

The Internet – Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

I overheard a World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) member say the reason they stayed away from the Internet was because “the Internet is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”  I find this to be a very curious understanding.  I’m not sure where he learned this from.  Was it from his pastor?  Was it something he […]
