About the Book

“The World Mission Society Church of God believes in God the Mother,” their website proclaims.

In fact, Mother God lives today in South Korea.

According to the World Mission Society Church of God’s website, by 2008 they had one million registered members worldwide. With churches established in New York and Los Angeles, their presence in the U.S. is growing.

They teach “salvation will never be given to those who are stuck on the name of Jesus” and all must accept “Christ Ahnsahnghong,” their founder, and Mother God for salvation. All of these teachings, they claim, are supported by biblical evidence.

So, how do we test all things, especially teachings claiming to be from God?

We test them against God’s own written words:

“But test everything; hold fast what is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Is the World Mission Society Church of God the one, true church? Is Mother God our only hope for salvation?

In the tradition of Walter Martin’s classic The Kingdom of the Cults, Searching the Bible for Mother God scrutinizes the biblical claims of the World Mission Society Church of God and sees if they pass the test. This book will benefit those interested in biblical Christian theology, apologetics, and evangelism. Composed by the creator of God From the Machine, an online blog dedicated to promoting and defending biblical Christianity.
