Shincheonji is a religion movement that does not have ties with any other Christian group. It is not a traditional church and it is established in agreement with what was prophesied in the book of revelation. Shincheonji teaches that the traditional church is the one that married the devil and will be damned to hell. Shincheonji Church also teaches that Lee Man-hee was the one selected by Jesus Christ as “the promised pastor” to teach the ultimate truth and that only Lee Man-hee can adequately understand the truth recorded in the book of Revelations
