Christ Ahnsahnghong: “…Women like Um Soo In…”
Preface of the Book “The New Jerusalem and the Bride: Interpretation on Women’s Veil”
Simply by reading the preface of the book “The New Jerusalem and the Bride: Interpretation on Women’s Veil,” we can understand the situation at that time and why Christ Ahnsahnghong published the book.
This is from the preface of the book:
This book is to clarify the mistakes of the books that Um Soo In published, and to testify briefly about the unchangeable truth of the Church of God… Women like Um Soo In appeared and caused big problems with their impertinent thoughts. How can they expect to be forgiven?… From now on, let us find the mistakes one by one in the books that Um Soo In wrote.
No book written by Christ Ahnsahnghong addresses a single person by name, except in this book. Here, Christ Ahnsahnghong mentions Um Soo In’s name. By seeing this, we can easily understand that this book was written in order to settle the problem at that time.
“If Christ Ahnsahnghong is God, He should have known that Um Soo In would look into His bag. Why didn’t he prevent her from doing so?”
This reasoning can also be applied to Jesus’ first coming. 2,000 years ago, did Jesus know that Judas Iscariot would betray Him? Yes! Jesus knew, but He still let it happen. Does this make Jesus not the Christ? Absolutely not! Jesus let it happen so prophecy would be fulfilled. In the same way, Christ Ahnsahnghong let the situation with Um Soo In unfold so everyone would know He had already planned to reveal the existence of Heavenly Mother in due time.
What I mean by this is the following: Today, many people say that the idea of Heavenly Mother was made up by General Pastor and Mother after Christ Ahhsahnghong passed away. If that’s the case, how did Um Soo In get the idea that there is a Heavenly Mother, if not because Christ Ahnsahnghong had already prepared all the material before 1983 to testify about Mother?
“Women like Um Soo In appeared and caused big problems with their impertinent thoughts.”
Those who speak against the World Mission Society Church of God and Heavenly Mother use this paragraph in Fathers book to include Heavenly Mother as a woman “like Um Soo In.” However, Christ Ahnsahnghong explained that the problem with Um Soo In were her “impertinent thoughts.” She proclaimed herself to be the Bride and taught church members that wearing the veil was not important during the time of worship.
Heavenly Mother Jerusalem is nothing like Um Soo In because she did not proclaim Herself as the Bride. Instead, Christ Ahnsahnghong testified about Her being the Bride. There are no similarities between Heavenly Mother and Um Soo In, thus making the argument that Mother is like Um Soo In invalid.
