The Series of Proverbs[1]: Sour Grapes

Sour Grapes

Usually people tends to make an excuse when they don’t want to do something, while being enforced to do it, or when they intensely want to do something, while being pushed not to do it. Even though they inwardly get mad, angry and irritated, outwardly they want to look be cool in a poker face or smiling face.
It is because they intend to make people believe that they are very okay, by using a pretense of false words or actions.

There is “A proverb” which expresses about this situation;

Ezekiel 18:2~3 “What do you people mean by quoting this proverb about the land of Israel: ‘The fathers eat sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel.”
Jeremiah 31:29~30 “In those days people will no longer say, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’ Instead, everyone will die for his own sin; whoever eats sour grapes–his own teeth will be set on edge.”

Besides the Bible, the proverbs can be found in the fables written by Aesop, named “The Fox and the Grapes”, which shows how to make a false pretense to form the reasons and the excuses in order that the fox looks not to care for something it wants to gain, but cares for it a lot.

The Fox and the Grapes

The fox who longed for grapes, beholds with pain
The tempting clusters were too high to gain;
Grieved in his heart he forced a careless smile,
And cried ,‘They’re sharp and hardly worth my while.’

In the other version, it says as follows;

This fox has a longing for grapes:
He jumps but the bunch still escapes.
So he goes away sour;
And it said to this hour
Declares that he’s no taste for grapes.

The teaching of “Sour Grapes”, warned by God in the Bible, reminds us of the hypocrites who never accept their faults, wrongdoings and even the crimes that they have committed against God so far; to hinder the Words of God and insult Elohim God.
It is true that Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother are the Creators of our soul and the Savior in this last age. Therefore if someone opposes WMSCOG for opposition’s sake without any credible evidences that he is right, he only proves to himself that he is “A hypocrite”.
I wish all of them admit their unforgivable sins and repent in bowing down in the presence of Elohim God and be born again with brand-new life as the children of promise.

The World Mission Society Church of God(WMSCOG), believing in God the Mother, are practicing the love of “God the Mother” and showing Her favor based on the philanthropy.
