I stumbled across an article from crc.ac about Christ Ahnsahnghong’s baptism year and would like to share with the readers of this blog. If you would like to read the original article, please click on this link.
Those who slander against Christ Ahnsahnghong and World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) insist that Christ Ahnsahnghong was not baptized in 1948 but in 1954. The reason why they claim the different year of baptism is because they know it is closely related to an important prophecy fulfillment the church is teaching. The evidence they presented is already proven false. If you would like to know more about this fabricated evidence, click on this link.
Let’s go over a couple of evidences that Christ Ahnsahnghong was baptized in 1948.
According to His handwritten note, Christ Ahnsahnghong was baptized in 1948 at Naksum island, Incheon and began preaching the gospel. It was recorded in the last Bible He used. How many of us write our own baptism date on our Bible? I think not many. It is usually just recorded in a baptism book. However, Christ Ahnsahnghong knew that slanderers would make false claims with His baptism date and made it clear with his own handwriting that He was baptized in 1948. Therefore we can have assurance that His baptism date is correct.
Let’s see the second evidence which is the the report by the Christian Council of Korea General Assembly. For your information, the Christian Council of Korea is an organization that labels the World Mission Society Church of God as a cult.
The following is the English translation of the report above-
“The Church of God worships Ahnsahnghong as their leader. He was born … in January 13, 1918, became a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in 1947, was baptized by Pastor Lee Myoung Deok of the Seventh Day Adventist Church (so-called Si-gi pa) at the age of 30…”
The organization that speaks against Christ Ahnsahnghong and the WMSCOG testifies that He was baptized at the age of 30. They stated that He was born in 1918 so therefore proved that He was baptized in 1948. Isn’t it a clear evidence that His baptism year is 1948?
Through these two aforementioned evidences, we can confirm that His baptism year is not 1954 but 1948. Even though slanderers try to deny the truth by manipulating documents, the truth is still truth. They hope to plant a seed of doubt in our hearts but all their attempts will be in vain because truth always shines brighter than falsehood. I hope this article helps those who are confused by this false insistence get clear understanding of the truth.
