The WMSCOG – Another “Doomsday Church”!?!?

The WMSCOG – Another “Doomsday Church”!?!?

The Church of God - Another "Doomsday Church"?

In recent years, there have been quite a few Doomsday churches that have appeared, proclaiming to know when the end of the world would take place. By doing this, these organizations have led many to submit their lives to them and even cough up their life savings in hopes of receiving salvation on the days these institutions prophesied as “the end.” Ironically, the only thing that came to an end on that “prophetic” day, were the churches themselves and the hopes that many had in the empty predictions and promises that were made to them by its leaders; so called “prophets.” I can think of at least three of these “end of the world” churches off the top of my head.

Now, I am not bringing this topic up to discredit anyone (I mean, these churches have done a good job of that on their own and have provided more than enough fire to keep themselves on the hot seat till the real end takes place - whenever it may be); I am saying this so that you can get an understanding of the damage these kind of churches do to people, and of the stigma that accompanies any organization once it is labeled under the “Doomsday” category because of these organizations; especially a church. NOT to say that every church or its beliefs are correct. But you get my point.

So why do I bring up the topic of "Doomsday" churches?? It's because lately, people who slander the Church that I attend and believe in, the World Mission Society Church of God, have been making false claims against the WMSCOG saying, “Christ Ahnsahnghong is a false prophet because He predicted the end of the world would take place in 2012 and it didn’t happen.” Because of groundless insistences like this one, the WMSCOG is often viewed unjustly as another “Doomsday” Church, causing people who have no real knowledge of the WMSCOG to hinder our Church and also disturb members like myself.

Through the following topics, you will be able to understand the legitimacy (well, rather, lack there of) of the things people say against the Church of God. Furthermore, you can come to know the motivation and reason behind their false claims and realize that their only purpose for saying these things against the Church of God is not for public interest, but rather, are driven by personal interest and unjustifiable hatred, as it was when Christ came in the flesh for the first time 2,000 years ago.

 

1. Is Christ Ahnsahnghong A False Prophet? Did He Really Say the End Was 2012?

It looks like it’s a 2-4-1 special with these questions. In order to get the answer for them both, we need to understand why these people claim that Christ Ahnsahnghong said the world would end in 2012, where their information is derived from, and are they clearly and accurately quoting the words of Christ Ahnsahnghong. Or do they force their own interpretation on His words as they do the words of the Bible (2 Peter 3:16).

When we look into the source of their claims that “Christ Ahnsahnghong preached the end of the world taking place in 2012,” we see them quoting the following passage from Christ Ahnsahnghong’s book, entitled “The Bridegroom Was A Long Time In Coming, and They All Became Drowsy and Fell Asleep”:

2. The World Was Supposed to End in 1988, 1999, and 2012 According to the WMSCOG

Among the things I've heard people say about the World Mission Society Church of God, one of them is that our Church teaches a "time-limited eschatology." I know; the first time I heard that word, I also thought to myself, "Escha-what?" Time limited eschatology is defined as the department of theological science focusing on the end and is often referred to as teaching about the "the end times" or the "end of the world."

By people saying that the WMSCOG teaches a time-limited eschatology, they accuse the Church of teaching its members that the world is going to end on a specific date. What's even more, is that they say that the Church of God taught that the world was supposed to end in 1988, 1999 and in 2012. Whether true or not, being that it’s the year 2014, we can see these time-limited theories never came to pass as truth.

Which brings up the question: Does the Church of God really teach a time-limited eschatology? Does it really claim to know the time of the end and teach people of a specific date in which everything is supposed to come to an end?

    People who make up false rumors against the WMSCOG clearly have heard wrong or
    Just straight up know nothing about the church. So glad to have read this post!

    I visited this church a couple times in 2012 when I was living in Orlando. I can’t remember any of the members saying anything about a pending rapture. If they really believed that the world was ending that year, I’m sure they would have mentioned it. People who say that church is a ‘Doomsday Church” must have them confused with the Mayans! XD

    The organization who spread so called “dooms day”,always getting their power or dramatic decresing of members after the dooms day turned out to be false..
    However,according to my understanding from info of WMSCOG,they keep incresing in their number. If WMSCOG preached dooms day,even 3 times turned out to be false,how can they grow so much? I heard recently WMSCOG awarded Queen’s award..its impossible to be awarded if it is organization of eschatology. I know that for sure.

    Christianity is essentially eschatological because the bible which Christians are supposed to believe testifies about the end of the world and this age for the new beginning in the new heaven and new earth. In many prophecies of the bible, the bible teaches that this world would be destroyed by fire. Therefore, if a church preaches that we would live on this earth forever happily, that church is not a true church which believes or knows the words of God in the bible. If a church believes the bible, it would agree that the end will come. Therefore, all the Christian churches around the world can be categorized as “eschatological.” The question we should ask is then which church truly knows the prophecies of God. Which church knows the Savior who appears in the last day to give us salvation? It is the Church of God established by Christ Ahnsahnghong, the true Savior in the Age of the Holy Spirit.

    The church of God is a great church that is very well educated in the Bible. There is no other church in the world that can compare to the works and teachings of this church. People who just look for faults will continue to do so because they themselves don’t want to do or put into practice what the Bible says, so to justify themselves to not do so they work on finding faults on anything about the church so that the church can look bad and not them.
