I rarely write my reviews but I’d like to share my experiences of visiting World Mission Society Church of God. I want to name this article “World Mission Society Church of God Reveiws” ^^
WORLD MISSION SOCIETY CHURCH OF GOD AND A HAPPY REMINISCENCE
Whenever I remember the days when I started attending the Church of God, a happy smile comes out of my face.
” Hey. aunt ! God has a “mommy” an angel-like lady said that.”
Upon entering my sister’s house, my niece urged me to sit down quickly pulling me by her arms.
When I was a college student, I used to drop by my sister’ on Sundays to have dinner with them.
“What the hell are you talking about? Does God have a mom? ”
I was a little bit puzzled but gave her a half-hearted response.
“Well, is she talking about Jesus’ mother, named Virgin Mary, who gave birth to Jesus?”
I asked it to my sister who was in the kitchen. She came out of the kitchen, holding a glass of apple juice in her hand with a smile .
God the Mother? Not Virgin Mary?
“She doesn’t mean God has a mother but there exists ,God the mother.” She said in a gentle voice and looked at her a daughter, Bailey. “Hey. Bailey, you should tell her the whole story. How does Stacy understand it without explaining in detail.?” And now my sister winked at me, her eyes crinkling.
”Anyhow, that’s what it is.”
My niece,Bailey ,often misses the main theme but connects only some words together.
“By the way, who on earth is ‘God the Mother’?” I asked.
My sister told me that she heard from her a close lady neighbor who has a baby that there exists not only God the Father but also God the Mother in the Bible.
FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE CHURCH ; WORLD MISSION SOCIETY CHURCH OF GOD REVIEWS
A few days ago, she’d had a chance to visit church of God. In the church whose teachings had given her a good impression. That’s why, she wanted me to visit there and both of us study the Bible.
Soon after, we came to the church. When entered there, the interior we saw was bright, cozy yet wide. It looked small on the outside though. Plus, the members of Church of God standing by the beautiful flowers were giving us warm smiles.
My sister’s who was one of the unit leaders had been considered a good worker in her previous church.
In her church, she had been presiding over the gatherings and teaching the Bible to her unit members.
Well, she was pretty confident with her firm faith. She seemed to be so proud of her church, knowledge about the bible and activities in her church .So, she asked over and over anything suspicious while we were visiting in the Church of God. The woman whose title was a deaconess of the Church of God, however gave clear and friendly answers to each and every question showing definite pieces of evidence with pleasure. On our way home, my sister was embarrassed and said that “I’ve read the entire Bible for several times, how come I didn’t recognize what they said?”
THE CHURCH OF GOD HAS POWER TO SURPRISE NOT ONLY BUILDINGS BUT ALSO BELIEFS
Upon getting home, she started conforming in each and every verse that we’d been taught in the Church .
Soon she was getting shocked because she could find all the same verses in her Bible. I suggested that it had better for her to study the Bible with them for a month. In that case, if she finds any false doctrine, she should quickly pull out from them. I couldn’t forget their genuine smiles. I believed in God though I was hesitant to attend the church for I am stubborn, selfish. And that frustration grew in my mind because some Christians do hypocrisy. I decided to attend the Church of God if my sister whose knowledge about the Bible much better than mine accepts the teachings of WMSCOG I too would attend there. After that month, my sister called me “God the Mother really exists there! Stacy, I’ve found true church. She was waiting and calling me to come to her!” She said in an exciting voice.
Well, the lady neighbor,who had preached the Heavenly Mother looked like an angel in my niece’s eyes.
My sister and I often have a time to study the Bible with them. I would say studying with them makes us jubilant that we are not conscious of the time. The time passes in the blink of an eye.
Overall, just like a man who found treasures is the delight I could compare to the joyous feelings of knowing the truth .
2 Pe 3: 8~9 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
