Exponential Growth of Newly-Rising Christian Denomination ‘Shincheonji Church of Jesus’ in the Republic of Korea

Despite the increasing number of people turning to atheism all over the world, an unprecedented phenomenon occurred recently in South Korea with 100,000 people graduating from a church, Shincheonji. According to analysts, the diversity of opinions in the Christian world has led many people to go to Shincheonji for Bible studies to address their spiritual needs.

On 10 November 2019, a graduation was held for the 103,674 students who completed their Bible course in Shincheonji. Shincheonji offers a 6-month Bible study course at no cost that one must graduate from in order to be registered as a church member. The graduation took place in the province of Gyeonggi-do with a total of 103,764 people who passed their graduation exam. Approximately 50,000 people attended the graduation at Gyeonggi-do while the rest of the graduates across Korea as well as those overseas participated through a live broadcast.

To put things into perspective, 100,000 graduates is equivalent to 100 new churches of 1,000 congregation members each, which contrasts with the drastic fall in members amongst religious groups today. Yet despite the difficult journey of completing a 6-month Bible course, 100,000 people have come to Shincheonji.

A survey conducted on 1,000 graduates showed that 41.7% of graduates were believers practicing their faith under pre-existing denominations such as Protestantism, Catholicism, and others. The reason why they decided to go to Shincheonji was because of its “outstanding teaching of the Word.”

According to a survey, 95% of people who came to Shincheonji did so because of the reasonable teaching of the Bible. Shincheonji teaches the entire Bible from the book of Genesis to Revelation in just half a year. Furthermore, the greatest difference that students experienced between traditional churches and Shincheonji was that it is the only place that teaches the fulfillment of the prophecies of Revelation, which the traditional churches tend to avoid mentioning.

The graduation appears to be the beginning of the South Korean church’s exponential growth. The 100,000 graduates have doubled the congregation members in the church within a year. At this current moment, there are currently more than 200,000 students that are attending Bible study in Shincheonji. At this rate, Shincheonji is expected to reach 1 million congregation members within 3 years, marking a significant historical change in the religious world.

103764 graduates produced in just 10 months is a display of the involvement and power of the Spirit of God. All of these things were accomplished not through the ability of man but the power of God. All of these things are the wondrous work of God.

    If they teach good,it is not a bad thing.
    We wait and see…
    Buddhist Teaching,Christian Teaching are all the same.

    It is not the TEACHERS who taught erratically,it is the so-called *DISCIPLES* who *instruct* wrongly?

    The Chinese started to shift away from the practice of divine worship 2500 years ago. They have been a secular civilisation for more than 2000 years.

    Are you a Chinese? Do you have any idea about it?

    If not, probably you’re one of the bananas.

    Ha ha ha!

  • Great Asia:

    They say man is made in the image of God; I say God is made in the image of man, the Roman emperor. God is monarchy and monarchy is God.

    God is just a silent monarch.

    Ha ha ha!

  • End-time Religion:

    The apocalyptic movement has been around for more than 2,000 years, promising the return of a heavenly-type figure who will appear at the culmination of history to judge the evil, reward the righteous, and to establish his kingdom. It is thought to have originated in the Zoroastrian religion, and later adapted by the Essenes, a Jewish sect contemporaneous with Jesus Christ. Jesus is thought by some to be an apocalyptic prophet who preached on the last day judgement and kingdom of God, and assumed for himself the title “Son of Man” which is a heavenly-figure found in the Bible. Christian apocalyptic is usually big on the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and the Book of Revelation.

  • Daemonic:

    People will not fly in an aeroplane that is not tested and certified air worthy. They would not sleep in a high-rise building if it is not rigorously tested and certified safe for dwelling. They would not use a bridge not engineered and proven to be safe.

    They are not willing to risk their lives with unproven and unvalidated products, structures and utilities. Yet, they don’t think twice about risking their afterlives with unvalidated claims. They don’t bother to test such claims or check for logical flaws or acknowledge inconsistencies.

    In fact, when others point out those same logical flaws and factual inconsistencies, they parrot the same arguments used by their religious leaders to refute the unbelievers.

    Bottom line: there will always be superstitious humans in any era of any society. It is just the same old superstitions repackaged.

    Jesus & Buddha teachings

    https://youtu.be/QAaW6BYhfNM

    “Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.”
    (Jesus Christ in Matthew 5:43-47)

    “Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the bondman of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Jesus in Mark 10:42-45)

  • Sinful nation:

    God is the word, the word is God…so simple, yet profoundly difficult to understand or conceive by the religious.
    When the words come out of the mouth of LKY, the nation listen with absolute reverence because his words carry much weight than anyone and were able to transform the landscape of the nation, translate into law and even “move mountain” – xi, and the CCP, is also a good copycat/image of Lee in the rule of law.

    When lky was in power, he played the political game better than anyone yet had showed reverence for the scripture when he quoted Mat 4:4 ISV But he answered, “It is written, ‘One must not live on bread alone”…. to remind his people about unrealistic “economic expectation”(only a selected class of people will enjoy the 5C). However he omitted the second part of the verse which is the most crucial for peace on earth…. ” , but on every word coming out of the mouth of God.’”

    Where do people find the “mouth of God”? Isn’t it in the House/temple of God?

    Lky, when he occupied the seat of power in the House of absolute power or God, was the “mouth of God” to the nation.

    2Th 2:4 KJV Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    1Co 3:17 KJV If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

  • Sinful nation:

    Mar 11:17 ISV Then he began to teach them: “It is written, is it not, ‘My house is to be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you’ve turned it into a hideout for bandits!”

    When the house is occupied by a strongman, each having free reign to make critical strategic interest, by way of the root of all evil, in their land at the expense of the others it can only lead to war.

    Mat 12:29 ISV How can someone go into a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions without first tying up the strong man? Then he can ransack his house.

    Joh 2:19-21 KJV 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

    On Singapore 46th national day, 2011, lky went to the House to expess his will for “his House” to be demolished.

    He did what needs to be done in his vision for Sin but had the sensibility to humbly abstain from enshrining “his corpse” for future generation to worship.

    Unfortunately the nation didn’t get the ominous sign that the House belongs to the Owner or Author.

    The House and the Anointed One are one.

  • Longan Faint , Heng Coma:

    People who Believe in God can be good , can still be not so good people.

    But one thing is common, they are suitable for Authoritarian Regime.

    God is all mighty.
    Believers have to FEAR GOD.
    UNquestionable entity.
    Absolute submissive.

    China no need religion.
    Communist Party ideology is religion.
    Unquestionable.
    Absolute obedience.
    Absolute Believe.
