The Church of God Forces People to Stay in the Church by Planting Fear of Disasters in Them?

World Mission Society Church of God

[False Claim]

The Church of God teaches that people can be saved from disasters by keeping the Passover. This teaching makes people fearful that disasters might come upon them if they leave the church. That’s why people cannot abandon the faith in this church.

 

[Countermeasure]

1. The mission of prophets

In each age, prophets have given warning that God’s people will receive disaster and destruction if they do not keep the laws and regulations of God. We can see the examples of Moses, Joshua, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc. The prophet Jeremiah said that the prophets who preceded him had prophesied war, disaster and plague from early times (Jer 28:8).

 
If their claim is right, all the prophets sent by God became those who made a sensation of fear. Does it make sense? Therefore, those who claim that are ignorant without knowledge about the Bible, and they are those who insult the prophets sent by God.

2. The prophets who gave warnings about disasters

1) Moses
  • Dt 28:15 However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you . . .
2) Joshua
  • Jos 24:19-20 Joshua said to the people, “You are not able to serve the LORD. He is a holy God; he is a jealous God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins. If you forsake the LORD and serve foreign gods, he will turn and bring disaster on you and make an end of you, after he has been good to you.”
3) Isaiah
  • Isa 24:1-6 See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants . . . The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word . . . The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth . . .
4) Jeremiah
  • Jer 11:3-11 “Tell them that this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Cursed is the man who does not obey the terms of this covenant . . . They have returned to the sins of their forefathers, who refused to listen to my words. They have followed other gods to serve them. Both the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken the covenant I made with their forefathers. Therefore this is what the LORD says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape . . .’ ”
  • Jer 16:10-11 “When you tell these people all this and they ask you, ‘Why has the LORD decreed such a great disaster against us? What wrong have we done? What sin have we committed against the LORD our God?’ then say to them, ‘It is because your fathers forsook me,’ declares the LORD, ‘and followed other gods and served and worshiped them. They forsook me and did not keep my law.’ ”
  • Jer 44:22-23 “When the LORD could no longer endure your wicked actions and the detestable things you did, your land became an object of cursing and a desolate waste without inhabitants, as it is today. Because you have burned incense and have sinned against the LORD and have not obeyed him or followed his law or his decrees or his stipulations, this disaster has come upon you, as you now see.”
5) Ezekiel
  • Eze11:8-12 “You fear the sword, and the sword is what I will bring against you, declares the Sovereign LORD. I will drive you out of the city and hand you over to foreigners and inflict punishment on you. You will fall by the sword . . . for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you.”

  1. Exactly! Their claim tells us that they are not sinners. If we are not sinners, why would God tell us that this earth is the city of refuge, and why would Jesus come to find the sinners? Because this earth is a city of refuge, many disasters are coming to this earth, to punish the people who do not obey His commands. But if you are God’s child, then you will follow His words and no disasters will touch you.

  2. Many people are not following God’s words. That is why this earth is becoming more evil than ever! Nowadays, the news are full of unbelievable, horrible stories that assure us that this world is becoming like Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Disasters are coming because of the people’s sins. Let us follow His words and become the righteous ones with firm faith, and so we can escape all kinds of disasters and end up in Heaven. :)

  3. Many scientists said about disasters like earthquake, typhoon, tornado, volcano and global warming
    Even though we heard many disasters from them and news. we do not fear about them
    and we do not abandon to go out By the Bible, God made the prophets give warnings about disasters,
    But who heard the disasters? and who prepared against them? and who did not abandon to go out?
    Why God warned about disasters? God doesn’t want we feel fear from disasters
    What God want is all saved from disasters, not fear.
    It’s same to the Church of God

  4. First time, Do you know why did you came down this earth from heaven?
    Most of people did not know this reason. But WMSCOG correctly inform us that we are sinner who crime in the heaven.
    So God came down in the flesh for our salvation in this Holy Spirit age through the new covenant Passover.
    When the time of salvation come, the bible said to us this earth will be destroyed all thing.
    God command us to preaching to whole world this gospel of heaven.

  5. This clearly shows that those who slander the Church of God know nothing about the bible and that their purpose is only to say negative things about us

  6. What ‘s the work of Prophet?
    Know GOD’s work first and say to ppl
    What is the God’s work according to the prophecy in the Bible?
    Bringing disaster to the earth
    Saving ppl from the disaster
    Now the World also show to ppl that disasters are taking place in various places via Media
    Then, What about them?
    They also make the earth fear?
    Thr the warning, make ppl prepare their life!!
    Thr the warning of disaster, God n Church of God make ppl save n prepare safety zone, the Zion( Jer 4:5~6)

  7. No matter what, disasters are everywhere and nowhere is safe now.
    Since there is no one telling us to escape from disasters, what should we do?
    We should listen to God’ s words through the Bible and follow what God says
    to us. Church of God does not plant fear of disaster to people.

  8. jerusalem144000 says:

    Do U know God’s will in the Bible?
    The goal of the Bible is for our salvation, NOT for destruction!
    With this in mind, no one can say in that manner!
    http://newnamechristahnsahnghong.blogspot.kr

  9. Through the Bible we understand God never does anything without revealing it to their prophets, first. Father & Mother have come to reveal to us that we are living in the time of fulfillment of all that is written, so we should remain close to Zion (the place of safety [Jer 4:6]). Those who claim these are fear tactics are the very same ones that say’peace & safety.’
    Satan is trying so hard to pry the offspring away from Mother, but we have seen the outcome, we just have to hold on to our crowns & remain in Jerusalem

  10. We should not lose focus on truth that Church of God emphasize the importance of the Passover. It’s because Church of God want all the people to keep the Passover and be saved, not to make them fearful of just disasters.

  11. As their logics, many scientists, geologists, and the Minister of America make people fear and foster anxiety.
    They present the Earth’s time limit and possibility of war through kinds of mass media.
    Then, their behavior is wrong?
    If there are possibilities of danger, to inform is the duty and natural thing.

  12. As you know, all the prophets preach the warning of disasters. but that is not the end. why did they preach about that? It’s because if they do not follow God’s law and words, then they will be destroyed. not only that but also there is a good news to passover from disasters. they wants to preach the Passover. that is God’s will. according to the bible, what is the fault?

  13. In the Bible, God commands His people to preach the good news of salvation and to be the watchmen, letting the people know what is coming… because God LOVES them and wants them to be saved!! Warnings come from love! How can God allow the world to be destroyed, as He has planned, if He doesn’t let the people know how to escape it? That’s why God uses us to tell them over and over again… Because people don’t listen, Father and Mother have been holding back the last disaster for a long time because of Their mercy, waiting for people to wake up. But if they continue to ignore God’s earnest warnings, they cannot complain on judgment day.

  14. Everyone knows unheard of disasters are occuring..even the pagans and nonbelievers have noticed and taken heed. Its common knowledge and the whole world is looking for a solution that is permanant but only finds temporary ones. That’s why men are looking outer space, deep down below and under the sea, but again, these are all temporary solutions. In the end all human beings love life and want to postpone dying as much as they can; that is why we keep searching and seeking but come to the same conclusion continously. In the Bible, it forewarns us (Amos 9:2) just as the news forewarns the world.

    Than lets apply this logic to the world…

    Lets say you go out of the country on vacation to a place you have never been. As you explore the city with your tourguider you become curious about somewhere you saw and head in that direction instead of following the tourguider’s directions. Upon finding you, he warns you to stay with him as he knows the safest parts of the city and not to go in that area again because it is dangerous and life threating. You agree as you understand his warning was for your best interest and follow the tourguider from that point on…

    Two ways to view this situation:
    1) Wow… Thank God, he found me I never would’ve thought a country so beautiful could be so dangerous. He knows this place alot more than I so maybe I should follow his direction.
    OR
    2) Why is he trying to control me and manipulate me into thinking that I can possibly get hurt like I don’t know how to defend myself like a baby? Hmmph.

    Which one is most logical? Answer #1 is…
    It is the same way in this world, this world is very beautiful however it is very dangerous. We are like the tourguider who are leading people thru the grace of Father and Mother to the kingdom of Heaven. However, people may not believe this country can be so dangerous and follow their own insistence. Yet, we seek the people who upon being lost, thank God for being found (Luke 19:10) and follow the will of God (which is the Passover).

  15. The reason why God want us to remain in Them is to protect us. The reason Church of God let the members know about the disaster is so that the members will always walk in God’s way and to be saved and protected from disaster.
    If you know there’s a great tsunami coming, you’ll keep telling your children not to go to the coastal area right. Is it to make them feel fearful? Surely not. It’s for the children to stay safe right?
    God loved each and everyone of us and hope that we can always be protected under their wings that’s why God warned us about the impending disaster and want us to be saved by keeping Passover.
    Lets give thanks to God rather than complaining. ..

  16. God always warn the people about the plague and He commanded God’s people never leave Him and must keep His commandments. God want to protect us from Satan and bring us to the heaven, so He commands like this. It is very natural, as the God’s people we should stay in TRUTH God made. Only believer can stay to the end.

  17. jerusalem144000 says:

    Oh! So childish!
    “Keeping the Passover” is the teaching even from God the Savior, NOT from the mortal.
    Now, they insist that God Almighty is doing the Same to us! Do U thinks SO??????

  18. Nowadays, aside from the Bible, everything including media, books, and scientists and so on keep informing that the disasters are everywhere and that we are now living in this very situation. It is easy to find people get harmed or damaged because of various kinds of disasters.

    Mind you slanders… it is not only the World Mission Society Church of God but all things around this world say the same thing about the disasters happening right now.

    In this situation where nobody guides people the place to hide, who on earth could be saved and get eternal life?
    According to the prophecies of the Bible, Church of God is the only place to be protected by all the disasters to bring about because this is the very place God has given the very precious promise to save all mankind.

  19. The World Mission Society Church of God is the safest place to stay from all the disasters happening in this last age.
    Since God Himself appointed this Zion is where Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother dwell and through keeping the Passover, we get protected from all disasters and plagues.
    Every teaching is from the Bible and how can we deny it?

  20. Only World Mission Society Church of God keeps God’s feasts according to the Bible!
    That is, WMSCOG is spiritual Zion, where U can be saved by God!
    However, some deny this fact, distorting the truth!

  21. Zion is the safest place to stay from all the disaters happening. Zion is the city of our fesivals. There the God will be our Mighty One.

  22. it’s not fearful.. but hope….

  23. Yet, Jesus proved that in the Bible, Zion is only safest refuge and where keeping feasts of God as Sabbath, Passover.

  24. We all know that there are numerous disasters happening every single second.
    Their insistence or arguments are so childish and just pointeless.
    World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) does not force people to stay in the church.
    Bible clearly testifes that the safest place we should enter is the very Church of God.
    Without checking through the Bible, how could we understand if it is right or wrong????

    Then, have you, slanderers checked the prophecies about Church of God through the Bible at least one time at all??
    If not, then I do not think they have any rights to say such meaningless argument.

  25. Chris Jackson says:

    The Bible asks us to enter the Zion from all those disasters that should happen in this last age.
    Then, what else should we need? There is no reason to have doubt about it, right??

  26. Gosh… Why do they even read the Bible!? They are missing the whole point.
    The reason for us to preach about disasters is because we want to save all humankind who were destined to die.
    Why is it so difficult for them to realize this simple truth?

  27. WMSCOG is trying to deliver God’s will thru the Bible!
    Every teaching comes from the Bible!

  28. Keeping the Passover is God’s will, who will lead us to eternal kingdom!
    God’s commandments are for us, not for condemnation!

  29. Keeping the new covenant Passover is essential for salvation!
    Above all, it’s following Christ Jesus’ example!

  30. Do U know the reason why Christ Jesus had established the new covenant Passover with His own blood?
    If U understand, U’ll know that they are distorting the truth!

  31. jerusalemwmscog says:

    When U keep the Passover, U are being loved by God the Savior!
    However, before keeping the Passover, U cannot understand this fact!

  32. Just prophets did not warn to people about disasters coming upon them but also preached the way to escape from them, the Church of God does not preach only the news of disasters and plagues but also the way to be saved, which is the Passover. The Church of God tries to make people feel calm and comfort by letting them know the good news.
    This is the point that slanderers take away on the purpose of slandering the Church of God.

  33. What the slanderers persecute and want to hide is the fact that God provides deliverance from the disasters and proclaim it to the whole world through the Church of God!
    All people knows the fact that the Last Great Disaster will be brought upon this Earth. Even the slanderers know that fact. If they were wise and truthful they would follow the word of God instead of speaking against it!

  34. Hm…… The reason why Church of God proclaim about disasters is because we know God has given us the solution! If we know the solution and have realized the prophecies about the coming of disasters and yet remain silent, how can we call ourselves God’s people? As the people of God, we have the mission of being watchmen and prophets so as to save people.
    When Jesus came to this earth, his main purpose was also to preach, wasn’t it? He told gave warning to the Jews with regards to the impending destructio.
    Instead of persecuting the Church of God, those churches should reflect and examine themselves! Why are they keeping silent? When we know that something bad is going to happen, shouldn’t we give warning? They arekeeping silent simply because they DO NOT keep the Passover.
    We in WMSCOG keep the Passover, hence even have nothing to fear. Now we are sharing this good news of salvation with the whole world. Brothers and sisters, there is absolutely nothing wrong with what we are doing. Let’s keep up the good work save the world through Father and Mother’s power!! Animo!!

  35. Todays, even scientist has been insising on Disaster upcoming in the future. However, they just warn about itself without solutions. Then, is it proper to say them as fear makers? No. And World Mission Society Church of God suggests the way to escape from disasters which are warned by many sientists now, for example, frome earth quake, epidemic, wars between nations and so on. All the people should know that the purpose of the Bible is to make us to be saved. And Jesus, Christ even came to earth in both his first and second coming to establish the Passover of the New Covenant which makes us be free from all kinds of disasters. . Christ Ahnsahnghong who retore the Passover is God.( Isa 25:6~9)
    I’m so satisfied with the truth being provided from WMSCOG.

  36. People should know that there is news of salvation only in Zion and that is the reason why we remain in the church of God, not because of the fear of disasters. We will eagerly remain in Zion watching the glory of God Elohim and their salvation in the time of disasters. Thanks to God Elohim.

  37. Researchers are constantly warnning us against the danger global warmming and earthquake could cause. Is this not scared? Why?
    We know earthquake is CRUEL. Study of global warmming show that sea ice melting at an alarmimg rate is FEARFUL. Scientist don’t have any solution. BUT Father Ahnsanghong and Mother have the solution against all kind of disaters. They prepared shelter, ZION. If your feeling is bad after listening the prophey of disasters, you must try to find zion. And just go to there.

  38. The reason why Church of God warns the disaster is to warn the people and teach them the solution that God has given us.In order to be protected you need to keep the Passover.
    Slanderers claims are so ridiculous!

  39. Members of WMSCOG are not eschatologists.
    We just share a good news that escape a disaster, with people of all nation.

  40. Don’t misunderstand. All the members of the Church of God fear what God says, not what church says. Plz check the word of God in the Bible. The one who warns us about the last disaster thr many prophets is no other than God himself, and the only way of salvation given from God is the New Covenant Passover. The reason why the members of the Church of God want to stay is that the Church of God is the only church in the world that keeps the NC Passover, the only way of salvation. Which means, we think that the World Mission Society Church of God (the Church of God) is the true church established by God.

  41. Before coming disaster, we should go to Zion where God dwells.

  42. It is interesting! I think The church of God has an unconventional view and a strong faith.

  43. This insistence does not make sense.. It is just against WMCOG!

  44. WMSCOG teaches the Passover to warn the people and give solutions! Slanderers claims are so ridiculous.

  45. Slander’s argument is ridiculous.

  46. I stay in the Church of God because of the words of God, not just fear. In the bible, the only way to avoid disaster is to keep the Passover and the only place where is safe from disaster is Zion. The World Mission Society Church of God is Zion that keeps the feast of God like Passover. So, I stay in Church of God as teachings of Bible.
