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.

Ahnsahnghong's Mistakes

If Ahnsahnghong is God, then we’d expect him to not make any mistakes, especially when it comes to the Bible. When I hear pastors make a mistake during a sermon (for example, recently my pastor said that Ruth had 3 sons, when the Bible says she had 2), I know it’s an accident—they merely misspoke, they’re not perfect, and it happens to the best of us. BUT if the speaker is supposed to be God in the flesh, he should NOT make mistakes—especially not mistakes in either recalling Biblical information OR in interpreting a clear Bible passage.

Ahnsahnghong makes these mistakes. Therefore he is not God. Here are some examples from his book, “The Mystery of God and the Spring of the Water of Life.”

(The page numbers correspond to the English/Korean edition I read.)

Page 105 (Chapter 8)
“Although the people of Judah seemed like they were observing God’s laws, they neither realized the Passover, the greatest commandment in the Law, nor kept it.”

Is the Passover the greatest commandment? In Matthew chapter 22 and Mark chapter 12, Jesus says that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Ahnsahnghong and the WMSCOG say that it is through the Passover that we can love God completely. But if Passover were the greatest commandment, as Ahnsahnghong said, Jesus would have said so also when asked about it in Matt. 22 and Mark 12.

Page 449 (Chapter 33)
“…when the Israelites were released from slavery in Egypt, the houses that kept the Passover by putting the blood of a lamb on their doorframes were saved, while the houses not marked with the blood of the lamb suffered the plague. Even Egyptians who put the lamb’s blood on their houses, were saved (Ex. 12:12-14, 37-38).”

If you read the story of the Passover in Exodus 12, there is no mention of any of the Egyptians putting the lamb’s blood on their houses and being saved from the plague. While it’s possible that they would have been saved if they had done so, it seems that none of them did because verse 30 says that concerning the Egyptians, “there was not a house without someone dead.” And yet Ahnsahnghong says that there were some Egyptians saved?

Page 465 (Chapter 34)
“…Jesus Christ went up to the temple and preached every day during the Feast of Tabernacles, and on the last day of the feast He said:” (and a quote follows from John 7:37-39)

John 7:14 (NIV) says, “Not until halfway through the Feast did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach.” He did not preach every day during the feast.

You might think these are just unimportant errors, but is this something God would do? No.
