Misuse of the Court Ruling

[False Claim]

“Hyundae Jongkyo” published a book which slanders that ? the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology, but the publisher was ? found innocent in the court. Therefore, the court ruling, “Northern Seoul ? District Court 2003Gahap6020 Damage Compensation” is the evidence to prove  that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology.

[Countermeasure]

1. Do you think that the government of the Republic of Korea would award an order of merit to a church that spreads a time-limited eschatology?

The Church of God received an Order of Merit, a Medal of Honor and a Presidential Citation from the Republic of Korea. (Refer to the Supplementary Explanation.) If the Church of God is blamed by society and spreads a time-limited eschatology as they insist, would the government of the Republic of Korea award an Order of Merit, a Medal of Honor and a Presidential Citation to the church? What government on earth would award such great awards to a church that is criticized in society? Think about it!

In the principle of the bestowal of an order or medal, it is stated, “It is awarded to the one who renders a distinguished service for the Republic of Korea as a citizen of Korea or the free people.” And the standard of the bestowal of an order or medal is determined in reference to the “contents of one’s achievement and the degree of its contribution to society or nation.” And the procedure of the bestowal of an order is as follows: In the recommendation institution, the recommended individual or group has to pass a strict examination of the achievement review committee, and is recommended to the Ministry of Government Affairs and Home Affairs. This recommendation is examined in the ministry and goes through careful consideration at the vice-ministers’ meeting and the cabinet meeting. And after obtaining the presidential sanction, the award nominee is decided. In other words, after going through all these recommendation and examinations, the nominee can be awarded.

Therefore, if the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology as the opposers insist, the church cannot even be recommended, to speak nothing of receiving an order or medal. Considering this, we can see that the insistence of the opposers who misuse the court ruling is groundless.

2. The background of the court ruling related with the Hyundae Jongkyo

1) The cause of the trial

Tak, who is the publisher of “Hyundae Jongkyo,” published about 500 copies of a book in 2002 where he insisted that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology. At this, the Church of God filed a lawsuit against him on the charge of libel [defamation through publication].

2) Criminal trial and civil trial

At that time, both a criminal trial and a civil trial proceeded for this case. Normally, compensation for damage―financial compensation―is decided in the civil trial. In the criminal trial, however, it is decided whether the defendant is to be sent to jail or not. Therefore, for the same case, the trial where the plaintiff and the defendant sharply oppose each other is the criminal trial. Generally, the civil trial is much affected by the result of the criminal trial. Therefore, in order to understand the exact meaning of the court ruling in the civil trial, we need to know rightly the process and the result of the criminal trial first.

This case is the same. What the opposers are now making bad use of is the court ruling of the civil trial, “Northern Seoul District Court 2003Gahap6020 Damage Compensation.” This ruling resulted from the criminal trial. Therefore, let us examine the result and meaning of the criminal trial, and find out that their insistence is wrong.

3) The result of the criminal trial

The prosecution acknowledged Tak’s libel charge and indicted Tak for defamation. Actually, in the first trial, he was found guilty of defamation through false information. The contents of Tak’s book that was published to slander the Church of God turned out to be false. However, a problem occurred in the second appeal trial. In the second trial, the Hyundae Jongkyo submitted evidence from six false informants. Because of this, the court judged that it could not conclude that he was guilty. And in the third trial, too, the same result was brought forth. The civil trial was affected by this criminal trial and he was found innocent.

3. Error in the insistence of the opposers

Opposers always conceal the clues that reveal the truth, and overstate a partial fact or distort the fact to draw the conclusion they want. It is the same with the case of misusing the court ruling.

First, the slanderers do not mention the false evidence (from the six false informants) Tak submitted at all.

All the evidence of the Hyundae Jongkyo, which led to the decision of “innocent,” was clearly proven to be fabricated and false at each trial of the six false informants. However, they remained silent about this fact, and gave prominence to the previous decision of “innocent” to slander the Church of God.

Second, through the ruling saying the publisher was found innocent, they make a false conclusion that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology.

However, it is different from the fact. The court declared him innocent, depending on the principle of “In Dubio Pro Reo,” just because it was difficult to clearly conclude that he was guilty. For this, let us study in detail the next item.

4. In dubio pro reo

In the first trial, the publisher was found guilty of defamation by using false information, but in the second and third appeal trials, he was found innocent. It’s because the court was unable to conclude whether or not his argument was true. The ruling says, “There are some incorrect expressions and exaggerations, but it cannot be concluded that they are all false.” In other words, the first trial concluded that it was definitely false, but the second and third trials found it difficult to conclude that it was definitely false.

Why was the ruling changed?

What kind of evidence did the Hyundae Jongkyo submit to the court in the second trial, that the court found it difficult to judge whether or not its allegation was true? Six informants submitted false evidence that the Church of God spread a time-limited eschatology. This made it difficult for the court to judge whether the allegations were true or false in the second and third appeal trials. That is why the court declared Hyundae Jongkyo innocent according to the principle of presumption of innocence; a principle to judge for the benefit of the defendant when in doubt, which is called “In Dubio Pro Reo.”

“In dubio pro reo” (Latin for “when in doubt, for the accused”) is a dominant principle of the criminal procedure code which most countries of the world, including South Korea, have adopted.

Ref) Principle of Presumption of Innocence
The defendant or the accused in the criminal proceedings is considered innocent until proven guilty. In Anglo-American law, even if the accused is the real criminal, if there is no evidence, he or she is given the verdict of innocent. In the Continental law, “In Dubio Pro Reo (when in doubt, for the accused)” refers to this principle. Such principle is to protect the rights of the accused.

Let us see a precedent where this principle was applied.

The Case of O.J. Simpson in 1994: The former American football star O.J. Simpson was accused as a murder suspect, which was news that astounded the whole world. A glove stained with blood of the victim was found at Simpson’s house, and the scene of his racing 100km [60 miles] to avoid police officers who came to arrest him was broadcast live across the US. Though it seemed he was definitely guilty, his defense team, the “Dream Team,” brought forth the verdict of innocent after a fierce battle in the court for 372 days.
The defense team insisted that the glove did not fit Simpson, and also brought the fact that the criminal investigator was a racist into view. As well, a false witness appeared. Then the trial fell in a state of confusion. Ultimately, the jury found it difficult to decide whether or not he was guilty, so he was found innocent in the criminal trial.
Simpson’s case is a good example of the judgment on which the principle of “In Dubio Pro Reo” was reflected. At the time of his criminal trial, some evidence was confusing, so it was difficult for the judging panel to decide whether Simpson was guilty or innocent. However, in the follow-up civil trial, the court acknowledged that Simpson inflicted serious damage on the victim, so he was ordered to pay 8,500,000 USD in damages and 25,000,000 USD in punitive damages to the bereaved family, and he ultimately went bankrupt.

This is an example where the principle, “In Dubio Pro Reo,” is misused. The principle, “In Dubio Pro Reo,” functions differently according to the situation of a defendant. If a defendant is in fact innocent, the principle plays the role of a shield that protects his or her human rights. On the contrary, if the defendant is actually guilty, all damage remains on the plaintiff. In the world, there are people who try to cover their crimes, abusing the law. Beyond what we see, how many hideous deeds are they doing to make false evidence?

The prevalence of such false testimonies in the courtroom people’s interest and such situations have even been made into movies, such as: The Devil’s Advocate (1997) directed by Taylor Hackford, A Few Good Men (1992) by Rob Reiner, The Rainmaker (1997) by Francis Ford Coppola, Primal Fear (1996) by Gregory Hoblit, In the Name of The Father (1993) by Jim Sheridan, The Firm (1993) by Sydney Pollack, A Time to Kill (1996) by Joel Schumacher, High Crimes (2002) by Carl Franklin, The Accused (1988) by Jonathan Kaplan, etc.

Many of you may have seen one or more of these movies. You are probably reminded of the suspenseful scenes when the false evidence and testimonies were considered true and the antagonists were almost victorious. Well, such a thriller occurred in reality. That was the ruling on Tak. 

5. The reality of the false testimonies submitted to the court

The testimonies of six informants who supported Tak

The six informants suddenly appeared in the second trial and alleged that “the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology and instigated the members to spread it, which caused problems like family breakup, running away from home and divorce and so on.” Their testimonies were submitted to the court as the evidence of eschatology victims, and helped Tak to be found innocent. It was only because the principle of “In Dubio Pro Reo” was applied to the ruling.

The testimonies of the six informants were all fabricated false evidence

After the Supreme Court had handed down the verdict of innocent on Tak, there was the follow-up trial for each one of the six informants on April 14, 2006. The six informants, who had helped Tak to be found innocent, were accused by the Church of God because they claimed that they were the victims of the time-limited eschatology of the Church, and they were all indicted by the prosecution. Most of them appealed to the Supreme Court, but they were all found guilty in the first, second and third trials.

Aren’t you curious about this part?

The six informants’ testimonies turned out to be false, then why was it that their testimonies were accepted in the Supreme Court and the principle “In Dubio Pro Reo” was applied to the judgment on Tak? Tak was declared innocent during the third trial on April 14, 2006; but the six false informants were not declared guilty until seven months later in November 2006. 

If the decision on the false informants had been made before April 14, 2006, Tak would most certainly have been proven guilty of defamation through publication.

The process of the trial on Tak and that of the six informants are as follows:

Tak was found guilty after the first trial on August 14, 2003, The second trial took place four months later on December 16, 2003. And the third trial took place on April 14, 2006. In total, it took three years and four months. During this period of time, all the informants, who had helped Tak to be found “innocent” were accused and found guilty in the first and second trials. Jeong S.M. was found guilty in the first trial on September 3, 2004; and Kim O.J. was found guilty in the first trial on June 8, 2005.

Unfortunately, Tak’s verdict as innocent after the third Supreme Court trial occurred before these false informants were found guilty. 

The decision on Tak in the third trial in 2006 was made without reflecting the fact that the informants’ testimonies were false.

6. What does the verdict of innocent on Tak mean?

As the slanderers insist on the Internet, does the verdict of innocent on Tak mean that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology? Absolutely not!

The trial on Tak, the publisher of the Hyundae Jongkyo

Some people say that since the book published by the Hyundae Jongkyo, which alleged that “the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology,” was found innocent, it must be true that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology. If we understand the principle of “In Dubio Pro Reo,” we can soon realize that they are wrong. As we mentioned at the beginning, slanderers stretch the meaning of a certain part of the ruling without seeing the whole story. The verdict on Tak in the third trial of the Supreme Court is not the decision acknowledging that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology.

The follow-up judgment on the six informants
The six informants, who defamed the Church of God together with Tak, affected his trial; they succeeded in making a fact unclear as they had intended. But they were all found guilty in the follow-up trials, and ultimately their fabrication was exposed. Since the trials deal with the same incident, the follow-up trial on the six informants is the most recent decision of the court. Then, is the claim, “the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology,” true or false? It is false. Using the court ruling, slanderers have insisted that “the court judged that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology.” However, their defamatory remarks are not true and the court’s rulings are as follows:

1. The court decided that it is false to allege that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology

2. The court decided that it is breaking the law to allege that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology.

A newspaper report

As the truth was revealed after all the trials on Tak, which took several years, and the six informants came to an end, the issue had a great resonance in the Christian world, and became a warning against denouncing other denominations as heresy through fabrication, and became headlines in the Christian Press. In order to help the readers understand, we posted the original Korean newspaper and its English translation.

7. Fabrication to brand other denominations as heresy

Party interests

The fight for rights in the political arena is not a recent occurrence. From the passage of a bill to the policy-writing process, we often watch politicians strive for the benefit of their party. The confrontation among different political circles looks different from the outside depending on the country, but each party puts in a great effort to hold a prominent position in policy-making. Sadly and unfortunately, all sorts of trickery and corruption scandals are revealed in the process.

It is the same as Judaism 2,000 yeas ago. Judaism, which had the vested rights, spread malicious rumors to pin Christianity as a heresy and to persecute Christians. At that time, the high priest bribed Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus’ disciples. The high priest also slandered Jesus’ resurrection by spreading a false rumor that Jesus did not rise from the dead but that His disciples stole His body.? (Mt 26:14; Mt 28:11).

Hyundae Jongkyo’s branding others as heresy; like father, like son

Hyundae Jongkyo is Korea’s representative leading group that brands other denominations as heresy. People in other countries may find it difficult to understand the words, “Branding other denominations as heresy,” but the denominations which are once targeted by the Hyundae Jongkyo are classified as heresy. (What is funny is that it never reports the corruption of large churches that have vested rights, which are related with it.)

There are many things to say about the Hyundae Jongkyo, but we will omit the long explanation. Besides this trial, the Hyundae Jongkyo is famous for constantly making trouble in society. Even a gathering of Hyundae Jongkyo victims was organized. [Gathering of Hyundae Jongkyo Tak Ji-won Victims, HANARM]

Before the first trial, Tak the publisher of Modern Time Religion said at the time of cross-examination,

“I have never confirmed objective facts about the time-limited eschatology of the Church of God. I believed unconditionally what my father had said and put his allegation against the Church of God in my book.”

Tak himself said that he put the content in the book without objective and proven facts. Does it make sense that a publisher who runs a publishing company would do something like that? What he did was something shameful as a Christian, and as a publisher. Tak made an excuse that he posted that kind of content because he trusted his father. Then, who is his father? His late father, who was also named Tak, was notorious for branding other denominations as heresy. His phone conversation with a certain Pastor Choi was once tapped and his fabrications and conspiracy were exposed and became headlines in many newspapers.

Pastor Choi’s conspiracy to brand others as heretics is exposed

Main conversation on the phone between Pastor Choi and Tak
  • Tape recorded conversation A

Choi: We should quickly make material to brand Park 00 as a heretic, and spread it among students in Jeolla Province. This meets the strategy. <Fabrication>
Tak: You mean Chongshin Theology School students?
Choi: I will conspire with Professor Yoo and spread the material among the students without putting up the professor in front, so that students will rise to protest against Park 00. <Conspiracy, Instigation>
Tak: We should do this strategically, not emotionally. Since we are to start with the Presbytery in Yeongdeungpo, if we say to elder Park 00 that we will present bills to the headquarters, he will post it as a major issue on the 00 bulletin. <Playing the media>
We should gather together quickly, (calling the Heresy Measures Committee).
Tak: Yes, yes! And I will mobilize the Holiness Church. That church also wants to decide … We will do first, and mobilize all the other churches. I need to be political …<Using ecclesiastical authority>
Choi: But it is very gloomy about the Habdong denomination. I’ve become the head inspector . . .

 

  • Tape recorded conversation B

Tak: I will ask elder Park 00 to post it in a large title on the 00 bulletin. <Conspiracy><Instigation>

 

  • Tape recorded conversation C

Choi: Do not talk much, but just say that he causes many troubles in society. What we are going to decide is that each Presbytery Heresy Measures Committee can inquire into the matter of heresy, and consult about it at any time through the headquarters heresy organ and to post it on the 00 bulletin. Let us call the head of each Presbytery Heresy Measures Committee to the head office and take measures together (using 00 bulletin). First of all, Joo the general affairs manager opened his closed mind to me, so he compliments and boasts about me wherever he goes. I will serve him well so that we can enter it through the 00 bulletin. <Collusion with ecclesiastical authority>

Front page of the Church Association News in Aug. 21, 2005

The information below is a summary of the article.

. . .
15 years ago, there was a similar wiretap scandal. At that time, the office line and home phones of Tak Myung-hwan [father of the present publisher Tak] who was called a religious problem analyst were tapped for about six months. It recorded the conversation between Pastor Choi Sam-gyung and Tak Myung-hwan, who began in earnest to brand Park Yun-sik as a heretic by establishing an organization, “Research for Park Yun-sik’s Heresy”; and it also recorded the private life of Tak who was an editor of Modern Time Religion Company at that time. Their conversation gave a shock to the Christian world. When Tak criticized Park Yun-sik the pastor of the Daeseong Church as a heretic, there was no positive response in the Christian world. Then he began to conspire with Pastor Choi Sam-gyung, but their conversation was completely tapped and exposed to the world.

December 27, 2012 WIKITREE

The Morality of “Tak Ji-won the Publisher of Hyundae Jongkyo” Questioned by His Huge Amount of Tax Evasion and His Hypocritical ArticleThe duplicity of Hyundae Jongkyo: Covering up its own tax evasion, but accusing one other group of tax evasion and writing an article arbitrarily about it9Tak ? Ji-won the publisher of Hyundae Jongkyo, whose years of tax evasion was ? exposed through the investigation of the tax office and was handed down the ? punishment of paying a penalty tax that was estimated to be in the tens of ? thousands of USD, stirred up moral controversy by criticizing the tax law ? violation of one other group and by writing a hypocritical article about it ? in the Hyundae Jongkyo magazine, covering up his own tax evasion.
While social blame on the tax evasion of professionals and self-employed people with high incomes has been on the rise recently, in January Tak Ji-won the publisher of Hyundae Jongkyo a religious magazine was handed down the punishment of paying a penalty tax from the Nowon tax office because his suspected large amount of tax evasion turned out to be true. The religious world was shocked at this.Before the shock disappeared, the publisher of Hyundae Jongkyo gives us a greater shock than his tax evasion, stirring up a great controversy on morality, by his hypocritical article.

It was known that Tak Ji-won the publisher was inspected for tax evasion in his income tax, VAT, etc, from October 2011 to January 2012. In November and December 2011 when he was still under investigation for suspected tax evasion, he wrote an article in the Hyundae Jongkyo, about a religious group “S” that had been criticized for issuing contribution receipts to its members even though the religious group was not registered as a corporate body, using provocative statements like “Person A is accused for tax evasion” (Nov 2011), “Imprisonment of Person A is a question of time” (Dec 2011). In other words, while Tak Ji-won was under suspicion of tax evasion, he wrote an article that criticized a tax-law-related matter of one other group, while covering up his own suspicion of tax evasion.

Besides this, in January 2012 even after it was acknowledged that Tak Ji-won had evaded tax for a couple of years and was handed down the punishment of paying a penalty tax which is estimated to be in the tens of thousands of USD, his hypocritical writing was revealed more plainly.

In the March and April 2012 issues of Hyundae Jongkyo, he stated again that it was against the Corporate Tax Act for the religious group S to issue contribution receipts. He even used a picketing photo, which urged the investigation in custody, as the front cover photo by covering the protest that demanded the investigation of the religious group S’s tax evasion in custody.

Considering that Tak Ji-won is a criminal of a huge amount of tax evasion, his article that blamed others for their minor offense, while covering up his serious offense, is an hypocritical behavior just as a saying goes, “My affair is romance, but another’s affair is adultery.” He cannot avoid being denounced because of his indecent and immoral behavior as a journalist.

Behind Tak Ji-won who regarded the violation of tax law of other groups as a serious crime and made it become an issue, there was Pastor Lee Deok-sul who accused the religious group S. Considering that Pastor Lee Deok-sul is a member of the edition advisory committee of Hyundae Jongkyo, a suspicion has been raised that Tak Ji-won deliberately wrote the article to make an issue of it by himself.

Additionally, even after the recent punishment relating to tax evasion, it is known that Tak Ji-won was repeatedly punished for committing the violation of “Act on Promotion of Periodicals including Magazine,” and the violation of “Act on Consumer Protection in Electronic Commerce,” while publishing the magazine Hyundae Jongkyo.

In the issue of Hyundae Jongkyo December 2011, there was an article, “The law must be kept even though there is freedom of religion,” criticizing the tax law violation of the religious group S. Before criticizing others, Tak Ji-won must apply it to the Hyundae Jongkyo and to himself first.

The Hyundae Jongkyo is a religious monthly magazine that claims to be a journal specializing in heresy; the magazine criticizes other denominations or groups as heresy, advocating a certain Christian denomination. From the time of the previous publisher, the magazine has evoked much criticism because of photoshopping and the spread of unsubstantiated information, etc. This time, it seems to evoke another type of criticism.

The Hyundae Jongkyo has habitually branded other denominations as heresy by fabricating evidence starting from the Senior Tak. Do you, as readers, think that the materials fabricated by such people are trustworthy?

<Supplementary Explanation>

Unlike the false claim of the opposers, the Church of God carries on the role of the salt and light of the world according to the good teachings of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother. So the Church of God received many awards. For lack of space, all awards cannot be listed. Some of them are as follows:

Feb. 2003, Presidential Citation from the President of Republic of Korea, Kim Dae-jung

Aug. 2004, Order of Merit and Medal of Honor from the President of Republic of Korea, Roh Moo-hyun

Jun. 2011, Call to Service Award from the President of USA, Barack Obama

Like this, the Church of God is constantly doing good deeds for the happiness of our families, neighbors, countries and all human beings. If you want to know more about the Church of God that contributes to nations and human society, visit the home page (http://english.watv.org/) and check the fact freely. The opposers fabricate a story, concealing all the good deeds of the Church of God. However, God of justice will judge later all those who lie (Rev 21:8).

    You can easily fine the main character of a heresy in the Bible.
    2 Peter 2:1~3 “…In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up…”

    Which one do you believe is a heresy,
    the Church of God which puts great efforts in serving communities according to the teaching of God, “be salt and light of the world” or Tak and his father who try to brand other denominations as a heresy with fabricated and exaggerated stories?

    Isn’t it difficult?

    All members of Church of God only follow God the Mother’s teaching, which is that we should become the salt and light of the world to shine Christ Ahnsahnghong’s glory.

    The supreme court ruled that “the insistence that the Church of God spreads a time-limited eschatology and causes families to break up is FALSE”

    Don’t fall into temptation to hear their saying.

    Those who defamed Church of God together Tak (to slander) are lawbreakers because they used the false information to succeed their false claiming.

    So we should double check through the Bible. If you have ANY questions,please don’t hesitate to ask in Church of God , always.

    I have read this publication 3 times now… and I just can’t understand how wicked this publisher could be, to publish groundless stories like this. And then… to make matters worse, they enticed false victims!?!?!? The Church of God established by Second Coming Christ, AhnSahngHong, is a wonderful and beautiful church, filled with wonderful and beautiful people who serve their neighbors and society well.

    The O.J. Simpson case was an excellent example to use: Despite incredible amounts of evidence against Simpson, not limited to, but including: bloodstains in his car, a glove holding DNA from himself and the 2 victims, his sock engrained with traces of his victims’ blood on his bedroom carpet and tapes of a terrified Nicole begging police for help as Simpson hit her – he was STILL acquitted of the murders.

    Because of people like Tak and all those who try to give Church of God a poor reputation, people who really want to know the truth are misled. It is very unfortunate that slanderers can’t think of anything better to do than invest their time in lies and deceit. I hope everyone continues to see through their lies and looks towards the truth in the Bible.

    I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to read this post. It’s clear that people continuously spread FALSE allegations against the Church of God… but I truly hope that anyone who has ever had a doubt will be clear that the teachings of the Church of God are not teachings and traditions of men, but everything comes from God. This is the only place where I have been able to find the truth because this is where God is…

    If you still have doubts about this, I urge you to go directly to the source – directly to the World Mission Society Church of God – and find the truth.

    I’m so thankful to Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for bringing me to the Church of God… They are true Elohim in the Bible.

    I feel so sorry for their all vain and fruitless efforts! What are they doing this for?
    Truly, they don’t seem to be afraid of God and His judgement for them in the last day.
    Think I need to pray for those poor souls.

    The things we should not miss is that all the informants, who had helped Tak to be found to be innocent,were found
    guilty after on. Which means Tak and accomplices are guilty of defamation through publication as the court ruling of first trial and Church of God(WMSCOG) has nothing to do with ” The Time-Limited Eschatology”
    Instead, WMSCOG spreads the LOVE of GOD everywhere in whole world.

    Tak and his accomplices, for the time being, seemd to have avoided the judgement of law in virtue of
    the blind spot of the principal of Law such as “In Dubio Pro Reo”,however the Truth always prevail.

    As shown above,Tak’s conspircy and fabrication was exposed in the end and it became big issue in church circles of Korea, Now many Christians who read this fact through a newspaper like” Christian Newpaper”and “Christian Today “,know very well about this issue and vicious conspiracy of Tak and Choi.

    Chruch of God abides by not only Teachings of God but also the rules of the society and is working for food that endures
    to eternal life, allowed by Elohim God’s Love and sacrifice, however they(Tak and Choi) are working for food spoils like money and power.

    No matter how hard they try to slander WMSCOG, with many vicious ways, we, WMSCOG know already “winner and loser”through the bible. Do they (Slanderers) really think that they can beat God ?

    See below, what this means !

    Gen 3:14~15 So the LORD God said to the serpent…you will eat dust all the days of your life..
    And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will
    crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

    This is the prophecy about this age and this world.
    The members of WMSCOG is the offspring of the Woman who is free (Gal :4:26)
    I do hope that this kind of vicious rumors & lies can’t kill the souls of my lost brothers and sister who don’t know yet about
    heavenly Father and heavenly Mother.
    Thansks and Glory to Elohim.

    I just wonder if Tak really believes the Bible. If so, then how come He does that to God Almighty and His people?
    If I were Him, I would feel so afraid of God’s judgement. Why?? Because I can not find any evidences that His doings are based on the Bible. NOT AT ALL!

    It’s sad that many people misunderstand about WMSCOG.
    World Mission Society Church of God is the only church which keep the teaching of God in the world.
    2,000 years ago, many people misunderstood about Jesus. They think He is not savior, so persecuted Him and apostles.
    Like wise, Satan persecute us to lead many people into the hell.
    Therefore, please don’t be deceived by the Satan.

      This statement is true.. my biggest problem with most religions including this one is the way they critize others spreading hate and fear..teach what you believe and the good new.. stop bad mouthing everyone else. seriously.. would God approve.. I dont think so.. you sow what you reep and reep what you sow so no wonder so many talk the way they do about this church.. it comes back ten fold. Clean it up and perhaps I may even listen.. but I will not listen to those that slander any of Gods children. including you

    Wow. This truly proves that if anyone despises Zion and tries to fight against the Church of God will only find themselves fighting against God. The scary part is that this was just the human courtroom. Who can stand before God the Judge in the Most Holy Place in heaven?

    Jesus came a second time with a new name, Ahnsahnghong. He proved He is the Second Coming Christ by restoring the lost truth of the Early Church–the new covenant. The Seven Kinds of Feasts of Three Times was fully explained in both it’s shadowy past and the fulfillments by Christ Ahnsahnghong. The World Mission Society Church of God is full of the brightest people who do the will of God and share many good deeds. Anyone who is slandering the Church of God is full of bitterness and captive to sin. Please don’t slander the church of God.

    let us remember this verses of the bible,
    Acts 5: 38 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.
    39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

    The purpose and activities of WMSCOG are from God: New Covenant Passover, the 7 feasts in 3 times, Sabbath , Veils for women, etc… according to the bible teaching. so Nobody be able to stop WMSCOG~!!!

    please don’t forget this; ” you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

    Wow those who apposed God two thousand years ago when he came in the name Jesus could not trap him with their schemes and the same attempts are being duplicated against Christ Ahnsahnghong. Thanks to His perfect teaching those who oppose God in this age cannot trap Christ Ahnsahnghong in their schemes.

    WOW, this is a real eye opener. People being found guilty of submitting false evidence and false witnesses.

    It is GOOD that we protect the innocence of the defendants, I would rather a guilty man go free by grace, than ever punish an innocent man. For even God said “for five righteous people, I would spare Sodom”.

    It becomes even clearer now that although some people get away with verdicts of innocent, the lies and falsehoods they tell are still exposed. You were found GUILTY, false witnesses.

    Regardless of the many false claims people will try and use to fight against the Church of God, truth is truth no matter what false claims come about, therefore God will always prevail. In the end God is the just judge and their punishment will be well deserved for messing with the wrong crowd. We are not looking to cause harm to anyone or their families proclaiming the end of the world, rather we only proclaim the truth about salvation so that all families who are currently suffering in this world can have hope for a better place where there is no more death, mourning, crying or pain and that is the Kingdom of heaven God has promised us the children of PROMISE!

    like it states in john (11v45-48) the pharisees where so afraid of jesus they felt threatened that there temple and nation would be taken. by jesus showing signs they felt if it continued that everyone would believe him they even questioned them selfs saying what are we accomplishing then eventually they killed christ without purpose same way church of god has been growing becuase of the signs of the prophecy that all nations will gather to mount zion and they feel afraid that they will lose so at all cost they try to blame the church of god by spreading bad yeast and false rumors there slandering was is so bad that even the courts had to be involved but just like jesus stood by barabus they shouted free barubus but crucify christ they are doing it to the family of zion making false claims and lies they have no concrete evidence and no solid proof that there aligations are correct because you cannot proof a lie to be correct in the first place no matter how eloquent your speech may be Gods word will forever remain

    Wow, awesome post. It is so clear and easy to understand that the WMSCOG does not teach that the world is going to end. As a member of the WMSCOG I was never taught that the world was going to end. So many people are easily swayed by others words. Many people easily believe all the false rumors about the Church of God without seeing any evidence of these false claims.

    God will always win, and this is evidence. God tells us to have faith, but not a blind faith.
    We don’t have to ponder in our minds wether the COG teaches time-limited eschatology or not, because this proves that we don’t.
    There were many organizations claiming the world was going to end especially in 2012. They made so much efforts to broadcast it and let others know. However what was the COG doing? We were doing community service, clean ups, establishing church’s and overseas preaching. Even through our actions and good deeds, you can see that we never thought/taught time-limited eschatology or that the world was going to end in 2012
    Just like this article, there are many more to disprove all the false claims “people” make against the WMSCOG.

    Thanks be to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for this truth and for Their grace
