An estimated 700+ WCG splinter groups are scattered across the globe, so it’s very difficult to keep track of them all. However, few in the COG realize or acknowledge that WCG was itself a splinter from the Church of God, Seventh Day, which in turn split from larger bodies.
We’ve launched a project to allow people to interactively explore the COG family tree with a zoomable, sortable, draggable chart.
Most of the data represents schisms, but an obvious handful are organizational name changes, major shifts in leadership or otherwise transformed identities of these cults.
This obviously isn’t everything, but it includes information housed in our own knowledge banks and GCI’s original splinter chart. We’re putting the call out for anyone with any further information on splinter groups and from whence they descended to let us know in the comments, social media or via email. It’s our goal to make this as comprehensive as possible.
