CCK chairman, Jaeun Gil
|The Christian Council of Korea specified Lee-Jaerock of Manmin Joong-ang Holiness Church as sect on April 16 1999.
The Christian Council of Korea accepted in one accord the report of 5 researchers in cult and sect research committee, that concluded that Lee-Jaerock as a terrible sect
leader of an extremely mystic nature. According to his research report,
Lee-Jaerock has taught definite cultic doctrine in the view of revelation, eschatology, the view of the hereafter, the theology of human sin, and theology of salvation. ( cf. 11th annual assembly report of
Christian Council of Korea, 2000, page250~251)
CCK (Christian Council of Korea) is the representitive protestant Christian association of Korea with which 51 Korean protestant denominations joined.
The theology of salvation and the deification status
Lee-Jaerock denies that he deifies himself, but the situation that he is diefied by his followers is very intense. And Lee-Jaerock himself is leading them into that.
1) If Lee-Jaerock calls all prophets, like Abraham, etc and the disciples of the Lord, they
appear just like a company supervisor appears when a president calls him. The prophets and the disciples come even though they are called without any title of honor like "sir" or "saint". And the prophets and the disciples salute him. (July 5 1998, evening service, July 17 1998 Friday overnight service)
2) In 1992, Lee-Jaerock said that during a blood transfusion he shed out all blood received from his parents, and he then received sinless blood, so his original sin and committing sins had disappeared. And he insisted that it is just like the sinless blood of Jesus. (July 5 1998 Evening service)
3) Lee-Jaerock claims that death evades him. (July 5 1998 evening service)
4) The spirit of Lee-Jaerock is sitting in the left hand of God's throne. (July 5 1998 evening service)
5) Lee-Jaerock has the authority of life and death. (July 5 1998 evening service)
6) In addition, Lee-Jaerock said that he has no original sin and commits no sin. And because the Lord and he is one. the Lord put him in the sun and moon and proclaims it to the world. (July 5 1998 evening service)
7) Lee-Jaerock said, he has achieved all the miracles in 66 books of the Bible except for walking on the surface of water. (June 21 1998 Sunday service)
8) Lee-Jaerock said that he will personally advocate manmin church members beside the Lord in the day of the Judgement. (July 5 1998 evening service)
9) Lee-Jaerock said that because he does not have original sin and committed sin by shedding out the blood received from his parents, so the death evades him. (July 5 1998 evening service)
10) Lee-Jaerock said that God came and left the key of the New Jerusalem on July 3 1998. (July 5 1998 evening service)
11) Lee-Jaerock said, because he and God became one, he appears in the sun and moon. And it is the thing that he register as a patent. (June 28 1998 evening service, October 16 1998 Friday overnight service) Because Lee-Jaerock believed, obeyed and testified the words of the 66 Bible books as it is, he became one with God and he is in the left hand of God's throne. (July 5 1998 evening service) Lee-Jaerock said that God put Lee-Jaerock inside of the moon and the electric lamp and told 'You and Me are one". (July 17 1998 Friday overnight service)
12) And Lee-Jaerock said that if one sees in spiritually-opened eyes, he can see the appearance of God, and its big mouth, its eyes into which one might be sucked, and its lips resembles those of Lee-Jaerock. (June 28 1998 evening service)
13) Lee-Jaerock insists that there was no event since the creation of the world, than when God certified the promise given to Lee-Jaerock. (June 28 1998 evening service)
14) Lee-Jaerock said that Jesus of 2000 years ago fulfilled the Old Testament, and Lee-Jaerock himself achieved the word of 66 books of the Bible. (June 28 1998 evening service)
15) Lee-Jaerock does not get wet with rain wherever he goes. (June 28 1998, evening service) If Lee-Jaerock commands, the briquet gas goes away. (June 28 1998, evening service) A patient is cured even by just touching the handkerchief on which he prayed. (August 9 1998 evening service)
First, the word that if Lee-Jaerock calls, all prophets like Abraham and the Lord's disciple appears, is a type of the ideology of invokating the spirits of the dead. It is the thing that any such reference could not be found in the Bible. And it is the heathen acts strictly forbidden by God. (Deuteronomy 18:11)
Next, Lee-Jaerock insists that he does not deifies himself. But it is merely a trick similar to what other many Korean sect leaders do. They claims to be gods to their own people but do not say such things publicly. Seeing the assertions that his original sin and committing sin had disappeared by shedding out all his blood received from his parents, and that word that for Lee-Jaerock the death evades, and the word that the spirit of Lee-Jaerock is sitting in the left hand of God's throne, and the word that Lee-Jaerock has the authority of life and death and the word that he registered as a patent for the fact that the Lord put Lee-Jaerock in the sun and moon and proclaimed the Lord and he is one because Lee-Jaerock does not have the original sin and the committing sin, and the word that he achieved all of the miracles in the 66 books of the Bible except for walking on the surface of the water, and the word that Lee-Jaerock would advocate for his members beside the Lord in the day of the Judgement, and the word that God left the key of the New Jerusalem to him, and the word that the appearance of God resembled the body shape of Lee-Jaerock, and his assertion that there was no such thing that God certified the promise given to Lee-Jaerock through various lights since the creation of this world, and the word that the Lord fulfilled the Old Testament 2000 years ago and Lee-Jaerock himself achieved the words of 66 books of the Bible, they are the words that he can never say if he is not diefied.
At last, diefication ideology of Lee-Jaerock as above shows that Lee-Jaerock becomes the condition of the salvation, and not only in terms of theology of Christ, but in terms of the theology of salvation, it made to begot a terrible sect ideology.
Lee-Jaerock had been specified as sect by Korean Holiness Church of Jesus (http://www.sungkyul.org) in May 1990. But some broadcasting companies, press, a part of pastors and revivalists of the Christianity became his fence to help to diffuse his sect teachings to Korean churches.
According to the research result as above, Lee-Jaerock is a terrible sect teacher of an extremely mystic nature, and it is concluded that the Korean churches should be warned thoroughly against him. If the Korean authentic churches allow him, unexpected damages are expected. So all churches are required to have to cope with him, being allied altogether across the denominations of the Korean Christianity.
