Will Good News Mission (Gu-Won-Pa) members die in their sins?

December 18th, 2011

Any deviation from God’s path causes us to lose something most valuable.

After a recent meeting with some members of the Gu-Won-Pa (translated Salvation Sect from Korean) or Good News Mission as they are called here in Ghana (Yet they offer some other truth aside from the good news) I got to do some bible based thinking in the Spirit as you do.

Below, mainly in response to the teaching of Founder Ock Soo Park. Park and his followers who say the following. And is taken from Ock Soo Park’s book “The secret of forgiveness of sin and being born again”………….. They not only say that
repentance after salvation is not needed, but also insist that to repent continually (or even at all) after salvation is the evidence of not being saved so he/she will go directly to Hell fire. They also prohibit the reading of the Lord’s prayer, because it mentioned the forgiveness of sin.

Steve’s response

One…….. Is the Kingdom of God divided? Any church or part of “body of Christ” that is proclaiming they are the only true church is not walking in love and is falling short of the Glory Of God. See 1 Corinthians 12. What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas[b]”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul?

Two…….. If we fail to confess our sins, then we will die in them (think/ponder on the seriousness of that), and risk being separated from God forever. See 1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Jesus said in John 8:24 that if our belief about Him is not correct we will die in our sins.
Healing too comes to those who confess their sins to one another. See James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. . Who is the righteous man with the powerful prayer? The one who confesses his sins.

Three…. Christian if you are to be effective in witness you will need the prosperity of God so the resources of God are available to you for outreach. Confess your sins, and walk right with God and He will prosper you as is needed.
Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
Proverbs 28:12-14

Four…… 1Corinthians 12:7 says: Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. The common good, that is for the possibility of all mankind to receive and to be built up. That is your good, and for those you interact with daily. Speaking in tongues for example builds me up as I prepare for a days evangelism. Laying hands on a Muslim who has malaria, and seeing them healed is also very good.

Paul says in 1Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.

We know from experience and we see from the scriptures that not all Born of God Christians work miracles or have gifts of healing or speak tongues. Yet plenty do. Even Paul encourages us to seek such gifts.

Jesus said as well in Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;

Mark 16:20 again tells us that God confirms His word through signs. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

Hebrews 2:3-5 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

God also helps us see where His truth is through signs, and through the gifts of the Spirit being distributed……..Yet read below.

Reader take note that I have never met one soul in the Good News Mission/Gu-Won_pa who speaks tongues or has the gift of interpretation of tongues. From what I have heard from members speaking in tongues is not something they do? Same for the other gifts of the Spirit.

I even had a zealous young member of the good news mission tell me that when he preaches or speaks righteousness he is speaking in tongues. Yet scripture tells us how tongues manifests. Its through the laying on of hands as Paul did in Acts 19:6 or through the hearing of the word of God. See Acts 10: 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.

Five……….. The question remains. How far can we deviate from truth before we do indeed lose our salvation?

Reader, if you are a member of the Good News Mission or are thinking of becoming a follower of Ock Soo park. Please know that you will come to regret doing so on the judgment day, and surely you will not bear as much fruit for God as you could have.

We have done reading of testimonies online of folks who have stopped following Ock Soo Park. It seems that often members speak more about Ock Soo Park then they do of Jesus.
The pride of life as written about in 1 John 2:16 describes Ock Soo Park. As followers are putting their eyes onto him rather than Jesus who is the author of life.
