2012 reference deleted[edit]

I made a login here this ip is me — Preceding unsigned comment added by JohnnyGospel (talkcontribs) 17:41, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

2012 reference deleted, it was not and is not held as a church-wide belief. 1. Small groups misinterpreted that prophecy, and cannot reflect the WMSCOG as a whole. Myself an example. 2. google "the truth of the world mission society church of god" for link to supreme court evidence that 2012 was not end of world prophecy and that people have lied about this before, I can't link it directly for some reason. recommending to prove the fact empirically. For a number of reasons, the truth itself first and foremost; the 2012 "end of world" was not the "end of world". It was a prophecy of the completion of the temple, which, after being read, contained a couple more paragraphs of events which happen afterwards. This is the problem with taking such a snippet out of a single source, it neglects the benefit of the full prophecy.. Not the end, merely a sign. As in Ahnsahnghong's writings he also states we will not know the date, thus the end date prophecy is just a sign. This can be definitively proven with a simple date-checking of church opinions, before, during, and after, the issuing of the prophecy, and the fulfillment of the prophecy. The majority of the WMSCOG, and the head church itself, has remained consistent with 2012 not being the end but a sign. All sources to the contrary are not only dissident minorities, but have had their authenticity thrown into question, if not outright disproven. Since to explain this I rely on hundreds of thousands of first-hand witnesses and blogs, I can't include it in the WIKI, but I hope that the authenticity of these "facts" in the future are held to a higher standard. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:37, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

NPOV requirements[edit]

They actually seem to be a lot better now, at least nothing concerning enough to warrant flags.

As long as people represent questionable sources with ambiguous language such as "claims" or "assumes" I think all is well. Any further controversies or "heresy" can be elaborated on in subsections. JohnnyGospel (talk) 18:02, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Uninformative and uncotextual general tone, specially on introduction[edit]

I wish to leave a simple note concerning the general tone of this article. The first 3 paragraphs of the article completely ommit the essential fact of several characteristic teaching of this "church".

Describing this religious denomination as a simple "church" is blatantly ommissive to say the least. This is a new religious movement religion, filled with anachronistic and original teachings unlinked to any traditional religious denominations, christian or otherwise. All of this should be appropriately explained on the first section paragraphs. If no sources can be found, call on higher up editors to write the appropriate paraghaphs. Of course it should be from a neutral standpoint, but any editor complaining this is not a new religious movement is being disengenious. Every other of the major christian denominations would consider sabatarian and claims of reincarnation of Christ of the religious leader teachings in this religion to be a new religion. Even the Adventists from which the founder splinter from.

I wont do this myself because this page feels like already have very partisan users editting it. And I suspect my attempts to do some editing including sociological or historical context would probably upset someone trying to promote this religion.

And after these scant 3 paragraphs, with simplistic and one-sided assertions of it being a vhurch and following the Bible, it starts with a schematic historical timeline and doctrinal points. All of which also lack context, even with other wikipedia articles.

This religious denomination's founder article is also ridden with these problems. (talk) 10:19, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Yang Xiangbin[edit]

Is anything else known about Yang Xiangbin (apart from Her being God)?

The Korean-originated church World Mission Society Church of God is accompanied by a separate article about Jang Gil-ja, who is God the Mother (as distinct from Ahn Sahng-hong (1918-1985), who is/was/might have been Jesus come again).

It would be interesting to be able to compare these two ladies, who seem to be the same (or much the same - there's still the God/Jesus dichotomy question ...) Person, incarnated separately but contemporaneously. (talk) 05:37, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
