WHO JESUS AIN’T: Introducing Jesus of Nazareth

Available in paperback for $9.00 (or less) and Kindle version for $3.50 (or less) on Amazon.

Cover

DESCRIPTION:

Whether Muslim, Roman Catholic, Evangelical, Jewish, Jehovah’s Witness, atheist, agnostic, spiritual-but-not-religious, “other” or “none,” everyone has an opinion about Jesus of Nazareth.

Is Jesus the Son of God? Is he God himself? An exalted angel? Or is he only a prophet or a wise teacher? Was he a wandering monk or a dangerous revolutionary? Was he a legend, not much different than King Arthur? Or was he just a really nice guy like your hippy neighbor?

There are so many opinions out there about Jesus of Nazareth sometimes it’s easier simply to say who Jesus ain’t rather than who he is.

So, Jesus ain’t… a white guy … born to privilege … born on December 25th … undocumented … an only child … a perfect child … a Marcionite … a myth or legend … a schizophrenic … a wise man or a good man … religious … a pluralist or universalist … a hippy, your homeboy, or a wimp … a victim … afraid to cry.

Searching_the_Bible__Cover_for_Kindle

DESCRIPTION:

“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 the only way to 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.

*Note: We made this title as cheap as possible for education, apologetics, and evangelism to those involved in the WMSCOG. All information in the book is scattered throughout articles on GFTM blog.*

    • Well, Jesus, Paul, Peter, John, and Jude all warned against false prophets in the NT, so I guess it’s to be expected. All the more reason for Christians to know their Bible, theology, & apologetics. Do me a favor, Joe, if you read my book, please write a review on Amazon. A person from the Mother God church wrote a harsh review to try to discourage people from reading it. It’s pretty clear the person didn’t even read the book.
