The Truth Always Prevails
Copernicus and Galileo, advocates of the heliocentric theory, were also judged and regarded as heretics. In those days, the Roman Catholic Church supported the geocentric theory, the belief that the earth is the center of the universe and that the sun, the moon, and the stars move around the earth.
The theories of Copernicus and Galileo were treated as mere heresy for a long time. However, as the field of science developed, their heliocentric theory became common knowledge, and the astronomers are now respected as pioneers.
By studying the Bible, we can clearly understand what heresy is. If you believe in God, and if you believe that the Bible was written by people who were moved by the Holy Spirit, you will surely be able to discern the true church from the churches practicing heresy.
Our standard of judgment must be the Bible, not the opinions of men. The Church of God, established by Christ Ahnsahnghong, follows only the teachings of the Bible, and can thus be easily recognized as the true Church.
Just as a good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and as a bad tree cannot bear good fruit, the people who refuse to follow the teachings of the Bible will never be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The truth always prevails!
