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.

"Mother's" Sacrifice ... Because One Wasn't Enough?

In Hebrews 10, the Bible tells us that Jesus is the perfect sacrifice for our sins.  His sacrifice was so perfect that it needed to be made only once to cover us all, unlike the sacrifices the priests offered on behalf of the people day after day, year after year.

Heb. 10:10,12-14
"By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all...  But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified."

But what does the World Mission Society Church of God say?  They teach that Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was not enough to keep us clean from sin.

This is evidenced in their sermon, "Mother's Love":

All the sacrifices in the Old Testament represent our Father who was sacrificed as an offering for sin about 2,000 years ago―and also our Mother who is sacrificing Herself to seek and save the children with devotional love for them in this age.
God has given His children the regulations of Third Day worship and the seventh-day Sabbath worship from Old Testament times. Through such regulations, Mother has purified our souls by sacrificing Herself, so that we may not be cut off from the community of God.
Maybe they mean "sacrificing" as in "suffering hardships" but not in the same sense as animal sacrifices and the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross?  And maybe this suffering of hardship is to help and teach her "children"?  No.

They quote Numbers 19:1-21 about the sacrifice of the heifer, and they continue on to say:

Every sacrifice in the Old Testament symbolizes God's sacrifice. Then, whom does the heifer represent? By whose and what sacrifice are we now cleansed on the third and seventh days?
The heifer was a sacrifice representing our Mother who's come into this earth as the Bride of the Spirit. The Israelites were cleansed through the sacrifice of a heifer. This shows that God's children are purified through the sacrifice of Mother on the third and seventh days.
Our Mother burns Herself, being sacrificed as a sin offering; through the ashes of Mother, represented as the heifer, we are cleaned from all our impurities, from all our transgressions and sins―on the third day and seventh-day Sabbath. How can we imagine and describe in words our Mother's pain, sacrifice and love?
Keep reading and see that they are clearly talking about "Mother" (Zahng Gil-Ja) being sacrificed for the sins of her "children":

Through the fact that our Mother is continually getting sacrificed on the Third and Sabbath days, we must know how many sins we have committed.
Some may simply think that they are forgiven because they believe God. However, we must know there is God's great sacrifice and love beyond description in the forgiveness of our sins. By God's wounds we are healed; the punishment that has brought us peace is upon God. Through such a sacrifice by God, we are forgiven. We should realize the love of our Father and Mother and give thanks to Them through the Third Day and Sabbath worships.
Without putting on Mother's love, none of us can enter the kingdom of heaven; we are expelled from heaven, and we can never enter by ourselves.
By the sacrifice of Mother, we are purified. Mother is pierced for our transgressions. By Her wounds we are healed and at peace.
This is in direct contradiction to Hebrews 10:14.  Here it is again in the NIV:
"For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy."

Not only that, but if "Mother is continually getting sacrificed on the Third and Sabbath days" for sins to purify her "children," then she is comparable to the repeated sacrifices offered in the Old Testament.  And what does the Bible say about those?

Hebrews 10:1-2
"The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins."

What kind of "God" has to keep sacrificing herself over and over again?  Hebrews 10 says once is enough.

  1. I don't know why I just can not see MOTHER God. If only i could feel it, I would definitely preach her to the ends of the earth. If I would have never seen that picture of her all suited up behind her desk at the we love you foundation. Why did wmscog hide this from me. She is suppose to be GOD not a bussiness woman. Jesus was a simple carpenter. She also accepts awards and bows to man, ???? and no where in the we love you foundation do they talk about her being GOD!

  2. This is an abomination against the infalliable Word of God.

    1 corinthians 11:3
    3 BUT! I want you to know that the head of every man is The Messiah, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of The Messiah is God.

    They are deceptive with these
    misinterpretations and will only pollute the minds of human beings.

    Im glad for the brave disciples of Jesus Christ.

  4. So it said at WMSCOG that mother represents the Prophesy in Isaiah 54
    Sing, barren woman, you who NEVER bore a child burst into song and shout for joy , you who were NEVER in labor .
    So let's look at this does it not say you who NEVER bore a child .
    How is this prophesy full filled by her ??????

    1. A good point -- especially since even the wmscog has admitted that Zahng Gil-jah has biological children of her own. (They did not share that before.)

    2. Also, a heifer by definition is a cow that has not produced a calf yet. In human terms, a heifer has no children. So even if that was a 'prophecy,' Zahng could not fulfill it since she has children.

    3. It isn't. But with the WMS, alot of times it comes down to the education of the person hearing th message. Heck, I didnt know heifer was a cow that had never had a calf, until today. They will either make up an excuse, or, accuse the person who questions of having little faith.

  5. Never put it together that a Heifer, hasn't had a Calf. Well, would only come up with a reason for it to conveniently mean something else

    1. It didn't occur to me until today either. I wish I had thought of it last time I talked with a member about this. I checked the interlinear Bible, and the Hebrew word looks like it just means 'cow,' not 'heifer' in particular. So I would use the word 'cow' instead, and if they insist on using the word 'heifer' then have them consider dictionary meanings. (I have a feeling they wouldn't want to call Zahng a 'cow'.)

    2. I should specify... I was looking up the Hebrew word used in Numbers 19.

  6. Hi! So I'm curious, how exactly does she sacrifice herself? You said she "burns" herself and mentioned ashes. I'm getting the picture of a phoenix, which can't be right...
