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 of Flesh and Blood...and Death?

Despite the Bible's insistence that Jesus was the one and only perfect sacrifice needed to cleanse us from sin (Heb. 10:1-14), The World Mission Society Church of God claims that "Mother Jerusalem" (Zahng Gil-Ja) is continually being sacrificed to provide cleansing from sin.

This means that they believe Jesus' sacrifice wasn't enough to accomplish our forgiveness.  As a Christian, this stuns me--how can God's own sacrifice of Himself, not be enough?!

Not only that, but "Heavenly Mother" can't sacrifice herself just once, but must continually sacrifice herself twice a week.  What does that tell you about the power of the "gods" of the WMSCOG?

But now let's turn our attention to the Passover, the Last Supper.
Mark 14:22-24
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.

Whose body was broken for us?  Whose blood was shed for us?  Whose body and blood do we remember with the bread and cup of the Lord's Supper (Passover)?  Jesus' flesh and blood.

The following quotes show that the WMSCOG claims this sacrifice of flesh and blood was "Mother's" sacrifice as well.

From God Who Has Saved Us:
We should not only rejoice in having received eternal life by eating the Passover bread and drinking the Passover wine, but in them we should find our Father and Mother giving us Their precious flesh and blood and looking upon us continually with eyes full of compassion and pity. God our Father and Mother have been sacrificed for us, like the Passover lamb. They've given us Their flesh to eat and Their blood to drink, and as the result of such a great sacrifice They have saved all of us, Their children.
From The Firstborn of Heaven:
So, in this age, God the Father and God the Mother have come as the Spirit and the Bride and have given us the blood of the covenant—the Passover, the blood of God the Father and God the Mother.
From The Meaning of the Sacrifice of the Passover:
Just as the mother saved her child with the blood flowing from her finger at the critical moment, our Father and Mother gave Their flesh to eat and Their blood to drink in order to save us....  We believe in Mother not just because the Bible testifies about Her, but because She is our heavenly Mother who gave us Her flesh to eat and Her blood to drink to save us from sin.
From The Wages of Sin Is Death:
When we eat the Passover bread, we have to remember that our Parents gave Their precious body and blood for us to eat in order to save us. When we drink the Passover wine, we have to remember that our sin was so great that it couldn't be forgiven without the precious blood of our Parents, and we should give thanks to Them for Their sacrifice.

How did "Mother Jerusalem" give her flesh to eat and her blood to drink?  Has her body been sacrificed and her blood shed as Jesus' was as the Passover Lamb (1 Cor. 5:7)?

Another big problem...
Read this quote from What Kind of God Is Your God?:
In the Bible, we have to find our Father and Mother who have loved us to the point of death; They were rejected by men, took up our infirmities, and bore our iniquities; They were even treated as sinners and died in the place of sinners.
Here we have two contradictions.
1. "Mother" has "loved us to the point of death" and "died in the place of sinners"?  She is still alive in Korea.
2. The WMSCOG teaches that "Mother" will not die at all, but will take her faithful followers directly to heaven alive with her.  Therefore, according to the WMSCOG she will not EVER "die in the place of sinners" or "love us to the point of death."

I am so thankful for the real Jesus was a powerful enough God that it only took Him one sacrifice to accomplish that payment for my sins.  He actually did die for me, and He rose again from the dead!  Ahnsahnghong is still in his grave, and one day Zahng Gil-Ja will be too, as is the destiny of all humans.  (Heb. 9:27)

  3. On March 16, 2012, Mr. M. from South Africa commented here, "This blog has helped me more than you know,so thank you and God bless."

    Thank you, Mr. M. I was concerned about publishing your comment with your name, so I hope you don't mind me posting it this way. I praise God that you've been blessed by my blog, and thank you for sending your encouraging comment. Though I am sorry that the WMSCOG has found their way to South Africa. I hope you'll keep in touch.

    1. They are here and I was approached by them about a month ago, I didn't believe them then when they told me about "mother god" and they did not go into much detail, or tell me that she is still alive today somewhere in Asia. I just thank God that He got me to this blog in time.

    2. I'm not surprised they didn't tell you about Zahng Gil-Jah right away--I hear that often. It seems they want to convince you to believe them first before telling you they worship an actual woman in Korea. Praise God you didn't fall for it. Blessings to you.

  4. My child has a friend pressuring him constantly to attend and join his church and I have had very bad feelings about it. I am glad to see this website and only hope to talk with my child and hope to open his eyes. I had not researched the church until just today but I had already made comments about it being a cult and pulling him away from me and more towards the church which now makes me believe even more after reading this. Thank you for taking them time to create and share this website. I stay strong in my Christian faith and hope it will help to keep my child from being steered in the wrong direction.

    1. Thank you for sharing. I am sorry to hear about your child's friend, but glad you are there to be a good influence to your child. Has he also managed to stay strong? I suggest talking with him about mind control and the tactics people may use to influence you to think and act a certain way. There are lots of good videos and resources on my 'links' page. I hope to hear from you again.

    1. While you will find *some "Biblical ways" at the WMSCOG, they are in error with many others, most especially the worship of two gods instead of one, and worship of an ordinary man and an ordinary woman as those gods. Please examine their claims carefully on your own before making a commitment.

  7. Hello I have been a member of this cult for almost 3 weeks and I knew something didn't seem right. It was too good to be true. They treated me so nice and my first study was bible is fact and sabbath and they ask me to be baptized I told them yes because they were very convincing. Long story short I invited an outsider because she wanted to join a new church and find god. I was so excited so when she did her first study which was sabbath she was convince to but they ask her do she want to get baptized and at least she was she doesn't know but at that time I was brain wash. I would go to bible study everyday because they said it would make father and mother proud and they will give me blessings. Also if i bring more people calling them "fruits" I will get more blessing another stragery they use. However when you get baptized that say that dead man name but we never learn from the so call second coming christ. after my friend got baptized she started crying when she got home because it didnt feel right. So she text me the next day what was his name i ask my friend and she didnt want to give it to me because she was afraid that she was going to go to the internet. So she told me to text the deceaness she telling me what to tell her. Right there she was trying to brain wash me saying oh tell her why does she wants to know. If she wants to know she should continue coming to the bible study because if she go to the internet that is satan writing all those horrible things about the church. Eventually they gave his name and my friend did her research and spoke to her grandmother who knows front and back of the bible she knew it didnt feel right. I did my own research and I was convince I join a cult and i was scared for my life. They kept calling me none stop and texting me to see what i was doing. My friend even pop up unexpectedly at my house twice and i got scare but thats what they do they mupliated her to see what i was doing making her feel comfortable showing me so much love and concern to rag me back into that church but they couldnt fool me with their psychological tactics. My friend wanted to know what did i see in the internet but i didnt spill any beans to her because i know was going to report it back. They kept calling and i told them i'm not coming back so bother. I block them from my phone and i just hope they dont show up at my house.

  8. I suppose one must ask the obvious...two basic observations--when the WMSCOG's "Mother Jerusalem" or "Heavenly Mother" Zahng Gil-Ja, speaks to non-Korean speakers, she uses an interpreter. I find it mindblowing that one whom the WMSCOG considers devine, a god, would require an interpreter. Since when does God need an interpreter? That's a big problem. That alone should give someone pause who might be considering following the WMSCOG. Additionally, Jesus, who we know as God the Son, pre-existant to creation, never used an interpreter, nor did He ever use a body guard...he feared no person or persons...no one could ever harm him until he allowed it at the time of his capture and crucifixion. I find it equally alarming, that "Mother Jerusalem" as a "god" requires body guards and her followers never question that.
