Why all the Construction Before the End of the World?
The World Mission Society Church of God members that I have spoken to, all claim that the “end of the world is coming soon”. So I ask them, “when?”. Usually get really vague answers like “really soon“, “the disasters are the signs of the end“, or “maybe even this year“. I recently heard from a WMSCOG member in the Seattle, Washington who claimed that the end of the world will occur in 2018. Ahnsahnghong already predicted the end in 1988 and possibly 2012, and that didn’t go so well did it?. If the rumors about 2018 are true, it appears to me that the WMSCOG would then be revising a prediction that the man they believe to be “god” made.
The World Mission Society Church of God, as an organization, does not appear to be concerned with the imminent end of the world. There is no mention of any particular year on their official web site. Also their “church” history doesn’t have an end date. So the only chatter that I’ve heard concerning a possible end date is from members directly involved in the group. Where are all the members getting this idea from then?
On June 22, 2001 the Ridgewood Patch published an article titled, “Church of God Expansion Hearing Delayed, Neighbors Concerned They Won’t Be Heard“. The WMSCOG, located at 305 Godwin Avenue in Ridgewood, New Jersey, has filed for construction permits. According to the Ridgewood Patch, the WMSCOG plans to potentially build two two-story additions for a pastor’s residence, several rooms and a restriping of the existing parking area. Why would the WMSCOG invest time, money and resources expanding their property when their members claim that the world will end soon? It just doesn’t make sense. To me, it sounds like they’re expanding a business.
Would a WMSCOG member please clarify this issue by commenting below or in our forum? Thank you.
