My son in the World Mission Society Church of God???

Cult Mission Society Church of God, that is the first thing I saw when I started to research on this organization after finding out that my son attends and has become a member of this Church. At first glance I was very scared because the claims posted on the internet about this Church are pretty scary.
According to what I read, it is claimed that the Church of God believes in a Korean couple (Ahnsahnghong and Mother Jerusalem) to be the embodiment of God on earth, they also practice many beliefs that are totally against to what is considered today to be Christianity.

When my son first told me that he was going to Church, I was very happy because I knew that would keep him out of trouble, but after finding out what kind of Church my son is attending; I wanted him out right away. But I started to think, “what if what these people claim is true?” “What if God really came to this earth as a Korean couple?” I mean why not? God is almighty; he could do whatever he wants.
I know a raised my son to be a very smart kid, he is not the type who lets himself get fooled so easily, there has to be something in this Church that is making my son stay, and the only way to find out is by going there, seeing from inside what is all about, how are they convincing the people to believe that Ahnsahnghong is the second coming Christ, I mean they must have some really good method because from what I have seen they have many members worldwide, so It has to be pretty big.
I am not just going to believe what I read in the internet about this Church, for all I know the people writing these things could be four eyed kids in their basements, talking against this organization. Because on one side you have the people who slander the Church, mostly is on blogs, and things like this one, that anybody could open up. But I also saw another side to this Church of God, which is their community service.
I found out that in Korea, this Church does a lot of volunteer work, and that it received a letter of recognition from the president of South Korea (this letter is only given to an organization, once a throughout research of the organization has been done, and nothing wrong has been found with it), they have received this letter three times already.
In conclusion, the bad arguments against this Church are very strong, but the sources where they are coming from are not very reliable; but on the other hand, the good things about this Church are found on government sites, and other reliable sources. I am tired of people telling me what is good and what is bad, the only way to find out is by going to the Church myself, and making a decision for myself.
I have had these door to door preachers come to my house and try to convince me so many times, but their arguments make no sense, if this Church of God World Mission society is the same way, I will be able to figure it out, I am a man, I could make my own decisions, and not base them on what other people tell me, specially coming from the internet. Ok folks keep posted; I will let you know what I see in this Church after my first visit. Till next time.

I too was very shocked by the things that were said on the internet about the World Mission Society Church of God. But, you know something, when ever an organization or any sect is bad mouthed as much as they are in the end it always turns out to be false testimonies caused by jealousy and envy. It's like being in grammar school, the good kid always gets made fun of. Rumors start to spread because the bad kids are too bad and the good kid is too good. As if there was some malignancy in being genuinely good. Before they write anything they should think, "What IF Ahnsahnghong and Mother Jerusalem are who they claim to be (GOD), then what’s going to happen to me. I don’t go to that Church, but that’s what I think.

It is very true how can people judge, just by what they see in the Internet, my Best friend recently invited me to play Soccer with the members of Church of God and I see some glow in those people that I want to find out, why they are so happy. I can not wait to see what they have to show through the bible, especially the prophecies about 2nd coming christ Ahnsahnghong, as they proclaim....

People usually fear what they don't know...and are quick to judge if it is different from what they were taught..I too was skeptical because I had been told that the teachings of Church of God are strange and not to go there...But I had to see for myself. Even though the name of AhnSahngHong and Mother God may not be familiar to me, they were able to show me through the Bible.. It's definately a good idea to check it out for yourself.
