believe in both God the father,Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the mother, Heavenly Jerusalem as true saviors in this age. We can find the prophecy of the bible that before the last judgement, the Second Coming Jesus would appear in the flesh to rebuild the Gospel of the early church established by Jesus the first coming, that is “New Covenant” and then, many” nations and peoples” would stream to the place where New Covenant are rebuilt and celebrated . [Pro.102:16, Pro 7:6, Mic 4:1-4].
Once they find a man practicing doctrines different from their own, they are apt to think he belongs to a Cult . We are not supposed to judge others by our own thoughts, social standards, or popular opinions. We must understand what Cult is only through the bible. The Bible is the only absolute criterion to judge Cult or not.
2 Pe 2:1-3 [ They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them.]
The main characteristics of Cult are as follows;
1. It results in destruction. √
2. It brings the way of truth into disrepute.√
3. It follows man-made teachings, not the teachings of the Bible.√
4. It opposes God through the teachings of false prophets.√
5. It never leads to salvation.√
What does the Bible say about Cult? Cult is following not teachings of the Bible but man-made teachings instead as below.
The Biblical Sabbath is Saturday. Every church must worship God on Saturday, not on Sunday. there are some proof.
“The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday” -The Faith of Our Fathers, pp. 72～73-
“The first day of the week [Sunday] was proclaimed as a day of rest and of worship…….in 321 A.D. Constantine …” – The Story of the Christian Church, pp. 60～61-
Jesus also testifies the Sabbath day is His custom in the Bible. Jesus kept the Sabbath day as an example so that we should do as He did.
Lk 4:16 [ On the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom.]
Jn 13:15 I [Jesus] have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
2. Cult does not celebrate the Passover testified in the bible.
The Passover is God’s truth that gives us the forgiveness of sins and judges all other gods. Those who do not keep it will be cut off from God’s people on the last day.
Mt 26:17-28 [This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.]
Jn 6:53 [Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.]
Ex 12:11-12[ On the same night … I will bring judgement on all the gods of Egypt.]
Nu 9:13[ If a man fails who is ceremonially clean and not on a journey fails to celebrate the Passover, that person must be cut off from his people.]
3. Most contemporary Christians keep Christmas [Dec.25th] as Jesus’ birthday.
In fact, Christmas is one of many pagan festivals, we can’t find any single of line about it in the bible.
“The Christian church took over many pagan ideas and images. From sun-worship, for example, came the celebration of Christ’s birth on the twenty-fifth of December, the birthday of the Sun”
-A LION HANDBOOK / THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY, p. 141-
“December 25―this was the date of a pagan festival in Rome, chosen in A.D. 274 by the emperor Aurelia as the birthday of the unconquered sun (natalis solis invicti), which at the winter solstice begins again to show an increase of light”
-ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA, p. 704-

4. Cult reveres a Cross, an idol from Pagan Rome.
It is a type of execution tool used for crucifying brutal criminals, and is not the symbol of Jesus Christ. So there is no any mention about that Apostles of Early church erected the cross or keep it as a symbol of Jesus’ sacrifice.
As you know, God teaches us only through bible, so the absolute criterion of
Cult should be the bible only. However most of today’s churches don’t follow it.
Come to the Church of God and receive salvation which is the goal of your faith.
