The Church of God is different from the mainstream of Christianity, so it is a cult?

1. Was Jesus, who was different from the mainstream, of a cult?

The First, 2,000 years ago, was Jesus from the mainstream religion or not? If their insistence were right, Jesus and all the saints of the early Church who followed Him would be a cult because He was from a non-mainstream religion. The second, Do you know why Jesus was persecuted by the religious leaders and crucified? It was because they regarded Jesus as the leader of a non-mainstream religion, a non-legitimate cult and a heresy. Using their strong point of having many members, they persecuted the true Church, calling it a non-legitimate Church.

The third, In the time of the early Church, when a lawyer named Tertullus, who spoke for the high priests and elders, presented Paul’s case, he said, “We have found this man [Paul] to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect.”

  • Ac 24:5“We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect」

Here, “the Nazarene sect” indicates Jesus. Those from the mainstream religion, who claimed to be legitimate, condemned Jesus, calling Him the Nazarene sect, and accused Paul of being His ringleader.

2. Legitimacy and Non-legitimacy according to the Bible

How do we distinguish legitimacy from non-legitimacy? Legitimacy and cults are not distinguished by whether or not the church is of mainstream, but by the fact if it was established by God or if it was established by men. The Church, established by God, keeps God’s commandments; and the churches, established by men, keep the rules of men.

Today, there are people who keep the rules of men, which are not based on the Bible, such as Sunday service, Christmas, Thanksgiving Day, etc. No matter how many they are, they are a cult and non-legitimate, which cannot be recognized by God.

  • Mt 15:7~9You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'”」

Therefore, it is non-biblical and a lie to insist that the Church of God is a cult and non-legitimate because it is different from the mainstream Christianity.

    Thanks to Elohim God, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother.
    Their insistence is non-biblical and only a lie.
    Salvation comes from the bible. Why? It’s because the bible testifies about Christ and His teachings.

    When Jesus has come into this earth, many people denied Him as Christ.
    Then, was Jesus a cult two thousand years ago? And, Jesus is, now, no loner a cult since many people follow Him?

    Whether or not people believe in Jesus, Jesus is Christ!!
    It is the same about Christ Ahnsahnghong. WMSCOG believes in Christ Ahnsahnghong as the 2nd Coming Christ since the bible testifies about Christ Ahnsahnghong.
    The answer is in the bible, the teachings of God.

    Do they still think the Church of God is not mainstream?
    I am wondering if they can say Church of God is not a mainstream after watching a news below.

    2,200 churches are all over the world and preach the truth, New Covenant.
    I am not saying we are true church just because Church of God is getting bigger as time goes by.
    There is only one reason the more people are coming to Church of God, which is that Church of God keeps all the truths in the Bible which can lead us to salvation and true God Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother are with WMSCOG (World Mission Society Church of God.

    • January 24, 2013 at 11:08 am

      I think Church of God is the mainstream in the aspect of the number of saints all over the world as well as the fact that it keeps God’s commandments and followed Christ Ahnsahnghong & God the Mother.

      Look at how fast it has been spread over the world. It’s only because God is with us 🙂

  • February 24, 2012 at 9:09 am

    Those who insist in that way are denying Jesus, who is in very nature God Almighty.
    And, they are also denying Christ Ahnsahnghong, the 2nd Coming Jesus.
    Salvation depends on God’s teaching, not on men’s thoughts!
    We are to believe and follow what is written in the bible!
    If not, their believes are in vain(Mt 15:9).

  • February 26, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Those who wnat to be saved have to follow the teachings of the bible.
    WMSCOG is preaching the gospel of the New Covenant following Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother.
    2,000 years ago, Jesus alone beagn to preach the gospel of the New Covenant.
    Then, those who insist in that way must say that the Early Church is also a cult.
    I think that they never believe the bible, and never believe in God.

  • March 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    I want to ask them this : ” Do you have a mind to believe in God with your heart??? ”
    If you do not have a mind to believe in God and believe the bible, you have nothing to do with God’s teachings.
    Jesus clearly said that my sheep listen to my voice.
    I can find nothing taught by Jesus among them at all.

  • March 9, 2012 at 11:23 am

    That is correct!! True church is the church which follow only God’s teaching, not man’s~.

  • March 9, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Only the church of God was established by God.
    How can we distinguish between legitimacy and non-legitimacy?
    The truth of life which was established by Jesus is written in the bible.
    We should keep the new covenant which is based on the bible not the laws of men.
    The church of God keep the teachings of God according to the bible.
    The christ Ahnsahnghong restored the new covenant. and rebuild the church of God.
    The christ Ahnsahnghong is our Savior in the age of the holy spirit.

  • March 11, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    We should listen only to Jesus’s voice from the bible. What is the real church? that is the church established by Jesus. the name of this church is the church of God testified in the bible. Do we have to follow the mainstream even if they are far from the teaching of Jesus? let’s think over seriously!

  • April 6, 2012 at 9:12 am

    First of all it is very important what is criteria of the faith?
    Tradition, mainstream, etc? certainly not
    The faith must be central the Word of God through in the bible.

  • April 18, 2012 at 12:29 am

    I have kept Christmas and Lord’s day for 8 years and I know it is not biblical.
    If we believe in God, we should keep the teaching of God through the bible.
    However, it is difficult that I go to the WMSCOG because many people say they are a cult.
    How can I do?

    • August 23, 2012 at 8:29 am

      God bless you,

      Salvation is between you and God not between you and people.

      I am a proud member of the WMSCOG. I am not even ashamed of it. I know my friends scorn me and they talk a lot about me, but all the WMSCOG teaches is from the Bible. Its only in the Bible that we can find salvation. Its Our heavenly Mother who can give us eternal life.

      If people laugh at you and say its a cult, well then, what can they say about eternal life? They know nothing about the truth from the Bible. We are persecuted because of the NAME of the Savior in each age.

      The Bible is the way to heaven and all its teachings are true and correct. Please come to the Church of God and receive salvation.

      God bless you.

    • February 24, 2013 at 12:29 am

      John 15:18-21 Jesus also told us that we’ll face many persecution and ridicule from those who don’t belong to the truth. So no matter what they say but if you continue to study the bible, you can confirm one by one why this church is not a cult like what they say.
      Before I come to church of God I always think that it’s so contradicting.
      Jesus and his disciples suffered so much but now all Christians are living luxury life. We should also endure hardship just like Jesus did.
      Thats real Christians.
      So don’t worry about them just follow will of God
      Though it’s hard but heaven which God promised us is so so beautiful.
      Please don’t miss this chance.

    What is the mainstream nowadays?

    • December 23, 2012 at 12:01 pm

      As I believe, the mainstream is the religion which follows just Bible and keep God’s commandments.

  • June 26, 2012 at 2:56 am

    What? Sunday service, Christmas and the Thanksgiving day are not based on the Bible???
    What is the ground of your insistence?

    • October 27, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      This is the answer in your question:

      Please check all resources that you can find. You may check the internet to find our the origin of Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, and Sunday service.

      Actually we can clearly show you all the evidences we have but you should also find the truth yourself in order to not regret in the end.

      Please also read this: Faith of Our Fathers page 72

  • July 12, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    2,000 years ago, Jesus was alone in delivering gospel.
    However, Jesus is God Almighty in spite of scorning of the Jews.
    We need the help of God for salvation, NOT arguments!

  • August 9, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    Church Of God is established by God. And We follow the law of God.

  • August 23, 2012 at 8:19 am

    Mainstream Christianity?

    The truth will remain the truth, even if NO-ONE follows it.
    False hood will remain false hood even if EVERYONE does it.

    Sabbath day is a command of God (Exodus 20v8).
    Passover is a command of God (Exodus 12).
    Veil is a regulation from the Bible (1 Cor 11).
    Baptism is a regulation of the Bible (John 3)
    Fact two Images of God: Male and Female (Genesis 1v26-27)
    Fact: Jesus said eat my flesh and blood you will have sins forgiven and Eternal life(John 6v53-53, Mathew 26v26-28)

    Everything the World Mission Society Church of God practices is from the Bible.

    What book do these other so called “Main Stream Christians” use in worship?
    The Bible? Which bible tolerates Sunday worship? Which verse talks about Easter? Where is it written that you should celebrate Christmas?

    These liars take one simple line from the Bible and take three hours trying to explain that single line. They can’t find other verses to back that up. They use their small brains trying to justify their wrong interpretations.

    We keep the Commands of God and the Feasts God gave to his beloved Children, and we are happy with the salvation Our Father the Second coming Christ Ahnsanghong brought, and we give thanks and praises to our Mother the New Jerusalem the source of eternal life. Thanks and praises be to our Elohim God forever.

  • October 26, 2012 at 6:01 am

    I really sit back and think about Father and Mother. Really we were all lost, but now even viewing the comments I’m so moved. They allowed us the truth and to be part of the heavenly family again. No one can deny the truth and surely it shines in the dark. God bless you all, and I hope to meet our brothers and sisters in the air.

    The truth is opposite to the false!!!!!!!!!
    We are to remember that salvation depends on God’s will, NOT on numbers.
    Whatever people say, you are to follow God’s instructions.

    Distingue verdadero hijos de Dios:´´ Ellos siguen a Dios por donde quiera que el va, ellos no escuchan voces extra?as (falsos profetas) y, solo hablan palabras de Dios´´…

  • April 21, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    Christ AhnSahngHong is our savior in these last days
    It is through his sacrifice that we are able to be in this earth living
    I truly GIve thanks to Our most precious Mother who
    Thru her endless love and sacrifice we are able to go on our way
    To the Heavenly kingdom
    I love you Father and Mother

    “DIFFERENT” does not mean “WRONG”
    “MAINSTREAM” does not necessarily mean “IT’S RIGHT”

    The Bible should be a criteria to judge if it’s legitimate or not. In terms of it, World Mission Society Church of God cannot be a heresy but legitimate in God’s view because it only follows the truths restored by Christ Ahnsahnghong who is the 2nd coming Jesus.

  • December 18, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I agree that judging legitimacy should be based on the Bible.

  • October 26, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    What is the true Church? It follows the God’s commandments through the Bible.
