What is a false church?

2020-12-11 08:05
There are lots of churches around the world.

How can we the true church from false churches?

Jesus let us know how to recognize the false churches:

Matthew 13:24-30 (The Parable of the Weeds)

Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

It's a prophecy which will take place after Jesus' Ascension. What do the weeds mean? Let's see the explanation of Jesus on the parable of the weeds:

Matthew 13:36-42 (The Parable of the Weeds Explained)
Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus explained that the weeds are all who do evil.

Can those who do evil enter the kingdom of heaven?

Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Those who do evil also can be considered as God's people apparently. However, they cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.

Which churches are the weeds which appear in the Parable of the Weeds of Jesus? Churches that do not follow God's law are the false churches.

For example, Jesus set an example by keeping the Sabbath day (Luke 4:26.) Those who keep the Sunday service are the weeds.
Jesus established the Passover of the New Coveant and even said "I eagerly desired to keep this Passover with you" (Luke 22:15.)
Churches which keep Christmas are the weed churches.

Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) keeps the Sabbath day, the Passover and other God's feasts such as the Pentecost.

Church of God the true church where you can get salvation.
You cannot expect salvation from the churches which do evil.

    We must know which church keeps the truth of the Bible or not. It is because only true church keeps the truth in the Bible. In this world, only the WMSCOG keeps the truth of the New Covenant such as Sabbath, Passover, etc. according to the teachings of God. Therefore, WMSCOG is the true church. Come to WMSCOG and then you can receive salvation.

      Really, the World Mission Society Church of God is the only church that follows the teachings of God faithfully.

  • 2020-12-11 09:43

    Jesus prophesied that there would be so many false churches which will keep the rules of Man made by man, not the commandment of God. We should find the true church which God Himself established with the truth of the new covenant by His blood.

    • 2020-12-11 11:47

      Amen! Those wo follow man-made rules cannot get salvation. Sunday service, Christimas, Thanksgiving Day... all these are just man-made rules not God's Law.

  • 2020-12-11 10:10

    We have to see the inside, not the appearance. Even it looks like a real church, it is the false church if there's no law of God!!!

    • 2020-12-11 11:39

      Amen! We need to look at the inner side not the appearance. Unfortunately, many churches do not follow the law of God.

  • 2020-12-11 12:10

    There're two kinds of church in this world. A true church that leads to eternal salvation and the others that end up with eternal condemnation.
    It's so difficult to distinguish the true church from the false because the false churches also pretend to be a true church.
    Outwardly they seem to have firm belief on God the Savior, saying, "Believe in God as long as you want to be saved!'
    But, inwardly they are standing against God, keeping people from following God's teachings.
    For example, they teach their members to keep the Sunday worship, which is nothing but a rule taught by men.
    The Bible warns that whoever keeps the Sunday service instead of the Sabbath profanes God the Savior.
    It's so natural for the prophets to teach and to follow God's commands.

    False means that it's not true and doesn't have the truth which was established by God.
    We have not to attend false church to receive salvation because there is no God in the false church

  • 2020-12-11 13:11

    Only those who have fulfilled Heavenly Father's will can enter the kingdom of Heaven. This is the teaching of God ~!!

  • 2020-12-11 13:23

    I took it for granted that so many churches were celebrating Christmas, but I found that all of this was a lie. And if you go to a false church, there's no salvation.
    Thank you so much for being able to attend the church of God with truth.

    • 2020-12-12 13:30

      Really Christmas is a downright lie.
      Unfortunately, many people have been deceived by Satan and think it's the birthday of Jesus.
      We cannot get salvation by celebrating Christmas. Instead, we must keep the New Covenant including Passover established by Jesus.

  • 2020-12-11 15:42

    Simply we can discern false churches spread in the world through whether they keep the Sabbath day or not. It is because the Bible says that Desecrating the Sabbath is doing evil. Then how can the wicked be saved ? No way.
    "What is this wicked thing you are doing-desecrating the Sabbath day? - Nehemiah 13:17, So we must go to the Church of God (WMSCOG)where God's feasts including the Sabbath day are celebrated !

  • 2020-12-12 15:49

    We can distinguish between the true church and the false church through God's law. The true Church must keep the feasts of God according to the teaching of the Bible. However, the false church keeps the lawlessness, such as Sunday service, Christmas, Thanksgiving day, and so on that made by men. And in the world, only World Mission Society Church of God keeps the feasts of God such as Sabbath Day, Passover, the feasts of the Pentecost, the feasts of the Tabernacles. I hope that the people of the whole world must come out of the false church and come to WMSCOG to be saved!!

  • 2020-12-14 07:00

    Amen. Those who practice lawlessness in the eyes of God cannot be the true churches. Today even though there are many churches and many denominations, those who keep the sunday worship and christmas are false churches who practice lawlessness. When we decide about the truth or the falsehood we should judge with God's eyes and God's standards, not with ours. In God's eyes, the Sunday worship and Christmas are lawlessness, which God did not approve or allow to keep. Jesus clearly said that we have keep the commands of God, not the traditions of man if we love God. Today God is separating wheat from weeds and the standards are the command of God such as Sabbath and Passover. Let us keep the commands of God.

  • 2020-12-31 13:08

    The false churches are keeping the falsehood such as the Sunday Service, Christmas and the Cross Idolatry. The Church of God the true church to please God Elohim by keeping the Passover, the Sabbaths and God's feasts. I'd like to preach all the God's laws and commands throughout the world.

  • 2022-02-16 14:48

    The wheat will enter the master's barn.
    The new covenant, the true teaching taught by Jesus.
    Only wmscog is the church that keeps completely in this world.

  • 2023-05-11 07:06

    We don't need to be shaken or disturbed by others' opinions except by the words of the Bible. All standards of distinguishing the truth from the falsehood must be the words of the Bible. Does the church keep the Sabbath which Jesus kept? Is the church keeping Christmas that Jesus and His disciples had never kept? With these questions, you will easily find the true church. I am so proud of keeping the truth of the Bible in the true church and having the promise of eternal life.
