Biblical Answers to the World Mission Society Church of God

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.--1 John 4:1

Are you or a loved one struggling with this group? Do you need Biblical answers about the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCoG or CoGWMS), their founder Ahnsahnghong (Ahn Sahng/Sang-Hong) or their current leader "Mother Jerusalem" (a.k.a. "Heavenly Mother God," Zang/Zahng Gil-Jah, or Chung Gil Cha)? Thank you for coming here. I hope my blog helps you. Questions and comments are always welcome.

8th Month Error Again at the WMSCOG

I've mentioned previously (here and here) about the World Mission Society Church of God's mistake in their own calendar keeping with regards to the fall feasts.  And yes, it happened again this year--2013.

The WMSCOG kept Passover on March 25, 2013 (source).  Therefore, using new moon data from NASA...

The new moon of March 11 started the 1st month.
The new moon of April 10 started the 2nd month.
The new moon of May 9 started the 3rd month.
The new moon of June 8 started the 4th month.
The new moon of July 8 started the 5th month.
The new moon of August 6 started the 6th month.
The new moon of September 5 started the 7th month.

We would have expected the WMSCOG to keep the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles in September, the 7th month, in accordance with Leviticus 23.

However, the WMSCOG kept these fall feasts in October (source), the 8th month, even though the WMSCOG's article calls it the 7th month.

The new moon of October 4 started the 8th month.
The Feast of Trumpets was kept on Oct. 5.
The Day of Atonement was kept on Oct. 14.
The Feast of Tabernacles was kept Oct. 19-26.

Why would the WMSCOG say they were celebrating in the 7th month, when really it was the 8th month?  This was not the first time--they've made this mistake in 2005, 2008, and 2010 as well.  (See the detailed chart here.)

I have asked members about this problem before, and the only answer they could give was that those years were leap years.  They must have forgotten that the "sacred calendar" handles leap years by adding a month at the end of the year (the 12th month is doubled), which makes no impact on the 7th month.

In fact, the Bible does mention a feast kept in the 8th month, and not in a good way...

1 Kings 12:31-33
31 Jeroboam built shrines on high places and appointed priests from all sorts of people, even though they were not Levites. 32 He instituted a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the festival held in Judah, and offered sacrifices on the altar. This he did in Bethel sacrificing to the calves he had made. And at Bethel he also installed priests at the high places he had made. 33 On the fifteenth day of the eighth month, a month of his own choosing, he offered sacrifices on the altar he had built at Bethel. So he instituted the festival for the Israelites and went up to the altar to make offerings.

I am hoping for a response from WMSCOG members...  Do you have any explanation for this?  Does this raise a red flag of warning for you?

Another ex-member of the WMSCOG speaks out

Last week, Steven Hassan released a video of Ron Ramos, a 12-year former World Mission Society Church of God missionary, sharing his experience.

Yesterday Diane Sims' video was released.  Diane, a former deaconess, was with the WMSCOG for 9 years.  It's long, but I hope you will be able to watch all the way to the end.  Go to http://vimeo.com/58850933 to watch, or click the video below.  (Description below the video is from Steven Hassan on Vimeo.)

Diane and her husband, Jeff Sims have left the group and she discusses in great detail many of her experiences. She and her husband were "fruits" of Ron Ramos and he was their mentor while they were in.

Breaking News! Ex-member of WMSCOG speaks out on video

I don't have a lot of time right now, but this was released today, and I want to make sure you all know about it...

An ex-missionary of the WMSCOG, who was with the church for 12 years has spoken out about the World Mission Society Church of God with Steve Hassan.  Go to http://vimeo.com/58659859 to watch, or click the video below.  (Description below the video is from Steven Hassan on Vimeo.)
World Mission Society Church of God exposed: Ex 12 year Missionary Ron Ramos and Steve Hassan from Steven A Hassan on Vimeo.
An apocalyptic group that claims that Mother God is living in Korea. It is relentlessly recruiting new members who are almost instantly baptized. Former members say that they believe the Catholic Church is the anti-christ and that all churches that worship on Sunday are satanic. The group is accused of breaking up marriages and families, encouraging members to drop out of school and abandon their life goals. Also that they break up families.
Children in the group are viewed as a hindrance. Some former members have claimed they were encouraged to have abortions by leaders.

Ron Ramos was the first American installed as a deacon and was made a Missionary in 2005. He went to Korea three times and was an intricate part of the recruitment process in the United States. He and his wife decided to leave in 2011 due to inaccuracies in doctrine, lies that were uncovered, and the growing realization that the WMSCOG is destructive.
