Company associated with 'Rod of Iron Ministries' bought Grainger Co. land for worship and shooting space

A property company associated with a controversial group that involves rifles in their spiritual life has purchased land in Grainger County.

The company, CIG Properties Inc., shares the same address as the Rod of Iron Ministries. The group regularly involves guns in their religious ceremonies. Its official name is World Peace and Unification Sanctuary and centers much of its spiritual tenants around a supposed coming apocalypse.

Much of the group's religious message is also based on the biblical Book of Revelations, specifically chapter 19, verse 15.

"Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God," the verse says in the New King James Bible.

The group also claims that no sovereign nation truly exists in the world, until the 'Kingdom of God' arrives at the end of time, as shown in the group's constitution. The group calls this kingdom, 'Cheon Il Guk.'
