The Worldwide Church Of God “Restored” the Passover Before Ahn Sahng-Hong
The World Mission Society Church of God claims that their founder “Ahn Sahng Hong, who restored the Passover of the new covenant, is the second coming Christ-God.” Whether he was Christ, is another question, given that both his writings and his tombstone claim he was the Prophet Elijah (another spurious assertion dispensed with here), but what about the other churches that were celebrating the Passover before Ahn Sahng Hong established his church in 1964? The Worldwide Church of God, established in the late 1930’s by Herbert W. Armstrong, was another SDA splinter group that not only celebrated the Passover, but all of the old covenant feasts.
How did Ahn Sahng Hong “restore” the Passover when it was already being celebrated in another “Church of God”? By the WMSCOG’s logic, Herbert W. Armstrong should be the second coming of Christ because he “restored” the Passover about 30 years before Ahn Sahng Hong established his church.
The World Mission Society Church of God calls all of their churches “Zion”. In an online sermon titled, “Let’s Aquire the Citizenship of Heaven“, the WMSCOG refers to Isaiah 33:20-22 and concludes that “We the people of Zion celebrate the feasts. So it is clear that we have a heavenly citizenship.“ But what about Herbert W. Armstrong’s Worldwide Church of God? They also celebrate all of the old covenant feasts. Are all of Armstrong’s churches considered “Zion” as well?

5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born there, and the same Almighty shall establish her.
1 BUT a place in the last days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream it.
2 And many nations shall go and say, and go up the hill of the LORD, and the house of the God of Jacob, he will teach us his ways, and walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and Jerusalem word of the LORD.
Hello Mauricio and thank you for commenting. Is there a point you wish to make by posting these isolated verses? If so, please re-post in the forum.
I really see very little in common and nothing [comment moved to forum by admin for further discussion]
how stupid they are. You know last Tuesday I asked one of a korean sister if the COG celebrated “ALL SAINTS DAY” and she told me no, because they worship ghost or dead people. Then Why they worship ahn ??? That man die long years ago. Thats really strange.
they arent afraid of all the dead except ahnsahnghong.
Hey Thanks for your help in exposing the church of god I’ve been struggling with their doctrine for about 3 years now. The only thing I would say to this is they would say Armstrong had Christians as parents and wasn’t born without genealogy so he wasn’t the real Jesus anyway. What do you make of this?
