Is the WMSCOG the ONLY True Church?
I was reading a very interesting article the other day. The topic was about “The True Church.” I’m sure most people, like myself, have had the question, “where is the truth”, or something like, it run through their minds. That question has become a problem over the centuries, being that nobody has been able to provide a concrete answer to it.
Through reading my review of this article, as well as some important things I highlighted from it, you will find the answer to that burning question, and come to the knowledge of the true God and the Church that has the truth mankind has been seeking.
The True Church, World Mission Society Church of God, is in the Bible
Nowadays, it’s seems so hard to find the truth. And with so many different faiths, religious bodies and ways to follow Jesus Christ, many people get comfortable with the thought of, “oh, I’m okay cause I go to church,” or they just give up in finding God and the truth altogether. Many have quarreled with people friends and loved ones, debating on opposite sides supporting their religious beliefs, which they each claim is the truth. There cannot be thousands of different Jesus’ that give eternal life. There is only one. That means there should only be one church. But among all the religious groups that exist out there, which is the true Church?
Though it seems like "finding a needle in a hay stack” (common phrase, which I also pulled from the article), the answer is simple. We can find it in the Bible:
Acts 20:28 - Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the Church of God, which he bought with his own blood.
The disciples and apostles that followed Jesus 2,000 years ago were all members of the same church. According to the Bible, it was called the Church of God. When you look inside the Bible, the Church that Jesus established and the apostles attended, has always been the Church of God.
1 Cor 1:2 - To the church of God in Corinth,...
Gal 1:13 - For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it.
Above are two letters from the Apostle Paul; one addressed to the church in Corinth, and the other to church in Galatia. In both letters, he addresses them as the Church of God. Even before he converted to Christianity, as one who persecuted God’s church, it went by no other name besides the Church of God. So, if you see a church with the name, “Faith Church of the A.F.P.C.E of God Inc. Worship Service,” or some other exaggerated title, you know you’re definitely in the wrong place. The biblical name for the church established by Jesus Christ is the Church of God.
There Are _____ Churches of God. How Do I know WMSCOG is the Real One?
After jumping the name-game hurdle, another issue arises. Among the millions of congregations that exist in the world, many have “Church of God” in their name (if you find the total number, feel free to let me know so I can remove the blank space on the heading).
Out of all the “Churches of God”, which one is the true Church?
Though churches may have similar names and practices, doctrines always differ from church to church. The reason being that they were all established by different people (i.e. not Jesus) and each follow their own traditions (not the Bible). Only in the true Church of God will you find the teachings established by Jesus Himself.
Then what are those teachings? One of the most important ones is briefly referenced in the beginning of this post:
Acts 20:28 - … Be shepherds of the Church of God, which he bought with his own blood (blood of his Son, GNT).
The true Church of God has something special that no other church can claim. It was bought with the blood of Jesus Christ. Through that testimony, we can recognize the true church from among all of the false churches (every other church out there). As we know, we receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life through the blood of Jesus. But we can only receive by keeping a feast appointed by God Himself.
Mt. 26:17; 28 - On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"... Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them saying, "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is pour out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
It is only through the Passover of the New Covenant that we can receive the blood of Christ, and the promise of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Therefore, through the Passover of the New Covenant, we can find which church is the true church, the Church bought with His own blood, once and for all!
The World Mission Society Church of God: the True Church
Out of all the churches that exist in the world, there is only one Church that Keeps the Passover of the New Covenant, according to all its rules and regulations. It is the World Mission Society Church of God. Established in 1964 by Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Church of God keeps the Passover, as well as all the Feasts of the New Covenant, and all the regulations that are found in the Bible. Mission Complete! We have found the truth!
There is but one last obstacle; in every age, the truth about God was always hindered: In the age of the Father, Jehovah’s prophets were persecuted. In the age of the Son, Jesus and His church was persecuted by unbelievers. And in this age too, the true Church established by Christ Ahnsahnghong is also persecuted, just as it was 2,000 years ago.
Despite their efforts of those who slander the Church of God and stand against the truth, the Church continues to grow. Just as the disciples were persecuted 2,000 years ago and spread the fragrance of Christ, the Church of God continues to spread all across the globe. The teachings of the Church of God come directly from God and is in the Bible (if they don’t agree with it, they obviously don’t like God or believe in the Bible). Since God reigns in the Church of God, will they ever be able to stop the Church of God?
Acts 5:38-39 - Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.
The WMSCOG is the only Church on this earth that was established with God's own blood. If it were of human origin, it would have failed a long time ago. But since Christ Ahnsahnghong's ascension in 1985, when there were about a dozen or so churches only in South Korea, the Church of God has spread to over 170 countries, with more that 2,500 established churches worldwide.
Those who slander the World Mission Society Church of God say that this growth is happening at "alarming" rate. What I find alarming is that they don’t take a lesson from the past and stop their efforts of persecuting the Church of God. The Bible clearly explains that this is a battle they already lost. The World Mission Society Church of God is the true Church. The One that Was established through God's own blood.
