REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
AND OUR PATH

Those who were engaged this weekend were supposed to go back to
their missions, but I see a lot of familiar faces out there.
(Laughter.) Raise your hands and show me, those of you who were
In the tradition of the Unification Church, we celebrate many
special days during the year. Among them, the most important for the
fallen world is Parents' Day because without that, there could not be
any Children's Day, Day of All Things, and so forth. Because the
restoration of this day is so momentous in the beginning of a new
history, God Himself honors this day with great emphasis and joy.
Why is Parents' Day so important for the fallen world? Why could
the world have no hope for the future without this day? Because of the
fall, the very roots of mankind- the origin-became damaged. Therefore,
without penetrating all the way down to the root, there could be no
real restoration. Out of a fallen root, the tree has grown up with
many branches as well as a lot of fruit. But none of those branches and
fruit bring joy to God because they have nothing to do with God's
Originally, the root was to have been established by God. From that
heavenly root, the tree and branches and fruit would have brought glory
to God. But the original root was pulled away from God's position into
the satanic realm. Since the root was the evil action of the fall, all
it produced was suffering for God, not His glory. Man's lineage has
Each human being, consisting of spirit and body, was supposed to be
a recipient of the true love of God. But because of the human fall,
contradiction came about between man's mind and body. False love
engendered the fruit of the tree, not holy, pure and true love. That
was not meant to be and it is not natural; it is abnormal and wrong.
The fall of man came during the indirect dominion of God; therefore, we
have never obtained the direct dominion of God, which is the reign of
true love. Unless we obtain that reign by fulfilling human
responsibility in the realm of indirect dominion, there is no way we
can achieve perfection.
The original ideal of creation is for each individual to be born in
purity within the true lineage and grow up through the indirect
dominion of God. During this time, guided by the truth of the Principle
of God as well as human responsibility, man and woman would mature to
completion. Ultimately they would be united, centered upon true love,
and enter into the direct dominion of God. As you know, that is the
Principle of Creation. In other words, to belong to God, it is
necessary to fulfill human responsibility.
That was the original picture of creation, but exactly the opposite
has occurred. On the weekend, many couples were matched. I want you to
realize that even though you men and women have been matched and are
ready to be engaged and receive the Blessing, getting out of the false
lineage and transferring yourself into the true lineage is not an easy
task at all.
Before we can be returned to the original state, we must go back to
zero point-the very original, starting point. Therefore, each man and
woman is destined to search after the place in which we can totally
erase the false lineage of Satan, where we can erase the original sin.
Unless you can find such a place, there is no hope for the restoration
of the true lineage. The first step toward that goal is the recognition
that we were born into the fallen lineage and our root is on the wrong
side. We have to come to that poignant realization first.
Why do we need to learn the Principle of Creation and the Principle
of the Fall of Man? It is because we need to know the original
blueprint of God, and at the same time we need to know what went
wrong. Unless you can get down to that root and truly discover where
the wrong root began-in other words, unless you come to that original
cause-you can have no hope for cure or restoration.
The most astonishing thing in the life of the Unification Church
under the True Parents is the discovery of this truth-that we do
inherit the fallen lineage. At the same time, we know that every person
is destined to go through the indirect dominion of God fulfilling human
responsibility, and ultimately there is hope to reach completion, or
perfection of union with God. That is the most incredible discovery of
the Unification Church.
Who shall connect to the two realms of human life- indirect
dominion and then the direct dominion of God- and by what shall we
accomplish that goal? There is only one way-by going through the true
love of perfected Adam. Adam and Eve were meant to perfect themselves
and to achieve the direct dominion of God. Once they were vertically
connected, they could become united horizontally; they were to perfect
their vertical and horizontal love.
People want to know what is a perfected person. Most people have
absolutely no idea what that is, simply because they do not know the
Principle of Creation. Only by the teaching of True Parents has the
whole truth been unfolded: the Principle of Creation, particularly the
importance of the indirect dominion of God and human responsibility,
and how we can achieve perfection. For the first time in human history,
that blueprint has been revealed. The path that we are to walk is very
clear: we have to grow through the indirect dominion of God,
fulfilling our human responsibility, then ultimately plunge into the
direct dominion of God.
Men and women must individually walk that path toward perfection,
then unite as couples and become the direct heirs of the lineage of
God. By doing so, they will represent the perfection of the universe,
as well as the fulfillment of the hope of mankind. United in true love,
man and woman become one body, one spirit, one unit in the sight of
God, and thus enter His direct dominion. Once that perfection of love
is completed, no power under the sun can infiltrate or defile it. Not
even the entire wealth of the world, including a huge chunk of solid
diamond or gold, could buy such preciousness. It is priceless
Each man and woman should be able to stand on that foundation and
declare to the world, "Nothing under the sun and no satanic power
can ever have influence over me." When a man and woman reach that
level of perfection, they become the central point of the love of God
within the universe. Therefore, the dignity and holiness which such a
man and woman impart can never be defiled by any earthly force.
In our world today, there are many different nations, some of which
are highly advanced and some of which are underdeveloped and
primitive. If a representative of one of the primitive nations decided
he wanted to come and meet with the President of the United States, he
would have no chance unless he knew exactly which route to take. Think
about and compare the difficulty of trying to meet the President with
someone who wants to find the path to the true love of God. Which way
do you think would be more difficult? The important difference is that,
although it is difficult, there is a way for a representative of an
underdeveloped country to meet with the President. But for an
individual fallen man or woman to find the place of the true love of
God is virtually impossible. That is because no amount of effort on
their part is good enough to find that path.
For you to join the Unification Church and work for three and a
half years, then to be called to be matched and blessed by Father is,
in a way, unspeakably easy. It is almost too cheap. Do you think you
have worked enough to deserve that Blessing after three and a half
years in the Church? Absolutely not. No one comes even near to
deserving that Blessing from the True Parents. In order to find the
formula for giving out the Blessing to humanity, God had to suffer
unspeakably and the True Parents suffered to an incredible degree. Now
can you come here and try to take that accomplishment freely, thinking
you deserve it?
Let's give an analogy. Suppose a king and queen were giving a
festive banquet in their palace. Do you think somebody dressed in
smelly, dirty rags and carrying a beggar's can could be admitted to the
palace? Could he be considered worthy to become the prince or princess
of the kingdom? That is unheard of, impossible.
Can you say, "Since I am a citizen of the United States, the
number one country in the world, I carry great status, so I could enter
that king's palace and claim the role of a prince"? Would your
American citizenship buy you such a position? Only those who are
specially chosen, handpicked, could enter the palace. Someone might
claim, "I am a Ph.D. from Harvard," or, "I have a high
social standing," or even, "I am the President of the United
States." But none of that would carry any weight.
Within the perfected Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of Heaven, only
the joy of true love between God and Adam and Eve has value. None of
the secular glories has any meaning in that place. Only one assignment
was given to Adam and Eve: "Fulfill your human
responsibility." They were not required to gain a lot of education
or social status; all they had to care about was fulfilling their
responsibility. By doing that, they could grow up and open themselves
to true love.
None of you, not even the 36 Couples, comes near to fulfilling the
True Parents' wishes and standard. You worry about attaining a certain
position or privilege within the Unification Church, but none of that
has anything to do with heavenly qualifications. When you are gathered
together for Parents' Day, you should not have any such concepts as,
"I am a well-educated person," or "I am a first-class
citizen of America." People who have that kind of impure thinking
always hamper God. The only thing He wanted in the Garden of Eden was
purity and total fulfillment of responsibility.
Let's suppose you have two antennae-one spiritual and the other
physical. Two antennae working together properly emit waves of
crackling light. All God wants to see is whether those antennae are
sparking, showing that you are fulfilling your human responsibility.
Such a person gives off light to the rest of the world like a
lighthouse. Then there is another lighthouse, that of a woman, showing
to the world that she also has fulfilled her responsibility. When
perfected man and woman come closer and closer, sparkling with
electricity, they clash into each other with powerful lightning and
thunder, creating the glorious joy of unity.
The ultimate goal of men and women is to enter the direct dominion
of God, the dominion of true love, by first walking through and growing
up in the indirect dominion. There men and women must demonstrate
human responsibility. Once you reach the true love of God, you join
with and become part of the root of God. From that root, new offspring
can come; new generations and traditions can spring forth and bring
great prosperity. When you become that root, you will give the tree
new branches and fruit-your children-and they can grow up to
perfection. They will be harvested into the heavenly storehouse, the
Kingdom of Heaven. That is the heavenly cycle.
Today's society is exhibiting many forms of perverted love.
Homosexuality is one example; the breakdown of families and the high
divorce rate is another. All of that is part of the anti-family forces
which are ultimately antiGod. Those of you who were matched yesterday,
do you feel you deserve that honor? There is only one thing we must
accomplish, one thing we should have in our minds: to achieve human
responsibility and enter the realm of the direct dominion of God. In
other words, achieve true union with God and become the bearer of God's
true love. You have no other or more important goal in life than this
because in this way, you will be qualified to enter the Kingdom of
You must become men and women who are united as one couple to give
seed to God's true lineage and posterity. If you accomplish that, you
can do nothing more precious. Once you become part of the true lineage
of God, the more children you have, the better. Suppose you had twelve
children; that represents the twelve gates of heaven and the completion
of the four seasons.
Those who have completed their responsibility have nothing to worry
about, including what to eat or wear or where to live. You will come
into God's direct dominion. Think about it: God is almighty and
all-capable. If you were on the verge of starving to death at the edge
of the ocean, God could make an instant bridge over that ocean and
bring down food and help to you. Nowadays, science and technology have
made the most incredible things possible. An example is the space
program with its satellites and shuttles. In just 54 minutes, a
satellite can circle the earth. People can land on the moon. If man's
wisdom achieved that, certainly God is capable of supplying you with
anything at anytime.
Today our job is to clear up false concepts and focus ourselves
properly. Even for you elders of the church, such as the 36 Couples, it
is most important to reflect upon your own life. During your thirty
years or so in the church, have you really done what I have described
today, what true men and women must do? Have you been living up to this
definition of true men and women?
Your basic understanding is very important; you must not have
confusion in your mind but must have a clear concept. When you are
firmly standing upon that clear understanding, then strive toward the
attainment of true love. Then declare to the world, "Nobody under
the sun can take away even one iota of this true love." When you
have that kind of confidence and commitment, you men and women would be
standing together like strong pillars, even to the degree that God
Himself could not shake you and Satan would have to testify to your
Throughout history, has there been any man whom God could be
completely excited and inspired about, someone for whom He could cheer,
"Do more, go ahead, you are going in the right direction"?
What do you mean, "Father"? When True Parents say
"Father," the meaning is different from when you say it. For
Reverend Moon to say "Father," it springs from the true
definition of the word, including the depth of the position of True
Parents. But when you say "Father" so cheaply and when it is
convenient for you to have me on your side, it is different. You say,
"Father, please give me matching and Blessing." When it is
pleasant, you say, "Father." When it is not so easy, you call
me, "Reverend Moon."
We must get back to the simplest principle. That means become pure
men and women fulfilling human responsibility and acquiring the true
love of God. Nothing else is truly important, including secular honor
or knowledge. This understanding is a priceless treasure, one which
could never be traded for anything else. Once you truly understand it,
that is the beginning point of your success. That is what our mission
is all about-becoming men and women who stand upon the fulfillment of
their responsibility and obtain the lineage of God.
Then we want to change our environment, beginning with the
individual environment, then the family, clan, society and national
environment. Ultimately, the mission of the Unification Church is to
change the worldwide and universal environment. This one principle
will prevail throughout the universe. The position of perfected Adam
and Eve is that of a seed. Then it can be enlarged to the clan,
society, nation, world and cosmos.
The important point is that the center line is always the family.
The family is the building block of the Kingdom of Heaven. No matter
how many millions or billions of years may pass in human history, this
central line of family purity, centered on the true love of God, is
I have drawn on the blackboard a side view of the line of
expansion, including the worldwide level and the national level,
showing the important central point of the family. If you Unification
Church members truly want to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, you have to
go from the world into the core, which is the True Parents and their
family. Inherit the tradition of love of that family, then duplicate
that tradition within your own family, clan, tribe, nation, and world.
The problem in the beginning was that no true seed was formed in
the Garden of Eden, no perfected Adam and Eve. Therefore, the satanic
pattern came to exist. It is the same formation but exactly reversed,
so the opposite world from God's ideal came into being. Satan planted
the evil seed, thus the Satan-centered family, clan, tribe, nation and
world is what we have.
One important sign of the Last Days is that the secular world has
become totally chaotic and confused. People are absolutely losing
their sense of direction, not knowing where to go. That is because they
have no seed. The shell of a seed is there, but nothing is inside;
therefore they have no anchor or central point. But on God's side, it
is very different; you have the true seed and center on every level of
development. Fallen people don't give much thought to the nation or
world because of this lack of a seed. Whatever happens to the rest of
the world, they can't feel a relationship with it. The everyday life of
people becomes more individualistic and they pursue more and more
sensual pleasures and desires, just trying to have fun. They don't
really know how to make plans for tomorrow.
The world's respect for the United States has steadily declined in
recent years. Everywhere you can hear, "Yankee, go home!" But
on the other hand, soon you will also hear everywhere, "American
Moonies, welcome!" That is because the Yankee Moonies have
declared, "The world is my arena of service. My family, clan,
tribe and nation exist for the sake of serving the world." Then
the Moonie also says, "I declare to the universe that I am
struggling to restore the world with its true seed, the central point
There are four billion people in the world, but the most important
point is within each individual. Whether you are Bo Hi Pak or anyone
else here in this room, you have to create the growing seed inside
yourself. Everyone in the world has the same basic shape, the same
outer shell. Everyone looks like a complete human being, but others do
not have that inner seed and substance. How much have you become the
seed of the True Parents'? Is that seed inside you, with God at the
core? You must be able to say, "I'm not an ordinary individual.
I'm the carrier of God and True Parents. True love is inside of
me." That is the kind of conviction each of you must have.
We must restore that original place. That is why repentance is so
necessary. During Jesus' ministry the first thing he told people was,
"Repent, tor the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." After we
repent, what must we do? We have to take responsibility and create
true love. The Unification Church is declaring this truth to the
world. We are clashing with the United States, pushing it and pulling
it like in a tug of war. That is how I see it. Who is going to win? No
one can change the original Principle and the ideal of creation. It
will prevail forever. No matter how hard some forces may push against
it, it will not move.
During this last matching, I learned much about you. There were so
few. virtually none, who really thought, "Yes, Father, whatever
you think. I am here to marry only for the sake of Heaven."
Rather, you were feeling, "Oh, please let me have someone a little
taller." Or, "That woman is too fat for me. Can't you give me
someone prettier'?" You were looking at something else. Everybody
was virtually out of their minds; they did not know whether they were
standing or sitting.
When the True Parents were installed in 1960, it was the most
important beginning point for our movement. During that time, I was
working on the family level dispensation while the entire weight of the
world came against me. In other words, I have always worked against
universal opposition. By 1976, the opposition realized that unless they
could stop Reverend Moon then, they would never be able to. Actually,
the seeds for Danbury were planted in 1976. The culmination of the
effort to destroy our movement was Danbury.
The forces of Satan thought, "Danbury will be the cemetery for
the Unification movement and Reverend Moon's power. We're going to bury
them forever, finally." Rather than rotting in Danbury, however,
we resurrected from that point. Danbury became the birthplace for a new
seed and new life for our movement; new leaves, branches and fruit
blossomed. Normally from the secular perspective, anybody who goes to
prison is finished but in the case of the Unification Church, prison
became the new birthplace.
The world has been astonished to see how Reverend Moon's movement
has grown since Danbury. Many people hoped that the Unification Church
would die during the year of my incarceration and they would never have
to hear of us again. But in the year since my release, the whole
country, even the whole world, has been virtually transformed.
Our opponents can see the presence of Reverend Moon everywhere they
turn. They cannot bear the sound of this growth-it is like overwhelming
thunder, so they try to plug up their ears. The light is so bright,
they have to shut their eyes. They dislike the smell so much, they try
to close their nostrils from that new fragrance. For them, the sound is
as displeasing as violent thunder. But for the members of the
Unification Church, it is like music and we are dancing around to it.
Why are you dancing? You should say, "I'm dancing because I'm
fulfilling my responsibility and winning more and more for God every
day." That is what gives you joy.
The gate to the Kingdom of Heaven and perfection has been opened
up. The letter "M" looks like the Korean word for gate. If
anyone is sincerely seeking perfection, he must pass through that gate
of heaven. Not only those living on earth but also those who are
already in the spirit world-without exception, each one must pass
through this gate. That is the only way anyone can be accepted into the
Kingdom of Heaven. What is the content? That is the fulfillment of
human responsibility and true love.
Then there is another gate-one for man and one for woman. All the
women must go through this gate, fulfilling their responsibility and
gaining true love. The men's gate has one dot on it and the woman's
gate has two dots. All men must pass through the one-dot gate; women
pass through the two-dot gate. After passing through, the man and woman
can join together and reach the true love of God.
This fundamental point, this basic formula, was first begun in
1960. That was the beginning point of the True Parents' Day. That is
when the original seed was conceived. For the first time in history,
there was a true perfected man's model-the True Father. Then perfected
woman appeared-the True Mother. All men should be masculine and
powerful like Father. All women should be loving and beautiful like
Talking about the Kingdom of Heaven, we can explain it most
simply. That is, anyone here on earth or in the spirit world can enter
the Kingdom of Heaven only by passing through the gate of the True
Parents. The Unification Church is providing a mold for true man and
true woman. The first mold for man is Father and the mold for woman is
Mother, so everyone can imprint himself or herself to those molds.
However oddly shaped you may be, it doesn't matter. The Unification
Church will remake you and you can become a new person. You will be
pressed down into the mold until you come out shining like Father or
By the installation of the True Parents we have a true family model
for the first time in history. From that, it expanded to the tribe
model; then the model should expand to the national, world and cosmic
levels. From 1945 to 1988 it will be 43 years. Father has been working
to create this model, starting from the family all the way to the
universe and cosmos during these 43 years. I came to the United States
to teach this model, and to show the people where true life and
salvation lie so that this country would not perish. This is the
pattern I have been walking: family model, tribal model, national
model, worldwide model, cosmic model, all centering upon the love of
The movement of the True Parents is spreading from the center to
the world and cosmos, but at the same time, the world is coming toward
the center. When this cycle is completed, there shall be new seeds and
a new core. Thus the new breed shall spring up throughout the world. No
power can stop the spread of that new seed. When the era of the new
seed has dawned, the spirit world and the archangelic world who were in
the position to assist Adam and Eve in the beginning will have to come
down here on earth. True Adam and Eve will be residing on the earth
again and the angelic world will be working at full power to help the
The environment will begin to change. So far here on earth, the
evil spirits have most grossly dominated the environment. But now all
the good spirits, including the great saints, will be able to come down
and help the movement of the True Parents go forward and spread the new
seed. Furthermore, another phenomenon will occur- that of unification
on every level. Everybody will be drawn to the center, desiring to
unify. One God and one ideal world will become a central concept within
the minds of all people. They will seek the unified culture within one
There are two most important aspects of unification: unification of
language and lifestyle, and unification of love. All these aspects of
the restoration process have begun through the effort of the True
Parents. They were the pioneers in opening up all these gates. This is
why no one can enter the Kingdom of Heaven without going through the
It has taken me 43 years to accomplish this entire cycle, due to
the incredible opposition I had to face on every level. But for you,
the environment is changing and all the angelic world is coming down.
Hostility is being transformed into welcome. Under such. circumstances,
you can accomplish the cycle in less than seven years so that all will
be connected. This includes the nation representing Adam, the nation
representing Eve, the archangel nation as well as the satanic nation,
which is the Soviet Union. All will be linked.
The goal of the Unification Church and Reverend Moon was made
abundantly clear in 1976 - that is, to hold a rally in Moscow and
liberate that land. That victory cannot be won by dropping a bomb on
Moscow but only by our working hard in the United States. If this
country is united and awakened to that goal of liberation, it can be
achieved very quickly.
The Unification Church has the greatest teaching-the ideology of
the Principle-which will overcome and destroy the ideology of
communism. We have the moral principles that will liberate secular
America and the world. That is the medicine with which we can immunize
people against all social evils, such as drug abuse.
I see that there are persistent, most malevolent attacks continuing
against the Unification Church and that is, in a way, like white blood
cells trying to eat up the red cells. Satan has been doing that for the
last 43 years. In response to such injustice, God is angry, and has
allowed the release of the dreadful plague of AIDS upon mankind. That
disease threatens to wipe out humanity unless they come to God. God's
side is moving forward with greater vigor, while the satanic side is
beset with more and more problems, which they will not be able to solve
unless they follow the way of Principle.
Can you go to some place such as Harlem, where there is so much
suffering and crime, and be like a Pac-Man eating up all those terrible
things? Can you do that? I would not hesitate to send you out to
difficult places such as Harlem or Africa or anywhere suffering is
persisting, because you could go and eat it up like Pac-Man.
I began my dispensational work from the Adam nation-Korea-and then
went to Japan, the Eve nation. Then I came to America, which is the
archangel nation. Ultimately when those three nations are united, we
will go to Moscow, which is the core of Satan's evil empire. By doing
that, the entire world shall be liberated and united. That will be the
external consummation of God's will.
You must be trained according to my pattern, so you must be able to
work in different countries. You will start in your own country, then
go to another land, the sojourner's land, then move to another and then
another. Your mission should encompass four nations. Also you must be
able to digest those countries culturally. First of all, you must learn
more than one language. You must be able to take care of the people as
their parents and raise them up, so that you can have spiritual
children all over the world. Otherwise, you will not become a good
citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Missionaries have been sent out to more than 120 countries carrying
True Parents' ideal. They had to learn the language of those countries
in order to teach heavenly tradition. In that way, the heart of the
True Parents is spreading throughout the world. By the same token, as
an individual, you have to set such a condition in order to follow in
my footsteps. When you are in a foreign nation, it is most important
that you be able to teach the people the mother tongue of the Kingdom
of Heaven, as well as the model lifestyle of the True Parents. Unless
you overcome the barriers in your life on earth, you will have to
overcome them in spirit world.
Human responsibility has different levels-individual human
responsibility, family human responsibility, tribal human
responsibility, as well as national, worldwide and cosmic levels. The
fallen world doesn't have any gate; they have only chaos and confusion,
so we have to establish the gate according to the True Parents'
tradition. This is why we have to move on each level and accomplish our
Not only is the world without a gate, but Satan is trying to block
the establishment of a gate. For example, Satan worked so hard to try
to defile this nation before the
True Parents had a chance to save it. The satanic forces wanted to
destroy this nation before I came here, trying to eat it up. Now the
time has come that all those people who are embodiments of
individualism and secular humanism and materialism must come and repent
before God on their knees.
Now you have to inherit my mission. The only difference between
you and the True Parents is that when Mother and I began our work,
there was no path ahead. We had to pioneer on every level and encounter
opposition everywhere. But in your case, you have no opposition and the
highway has already been laid by True Parents.
(Father begins speaking here in English.) We have already
taken on all the persecution and now people around the world are
looking up to us with respect. We have a professional organization all
over the world, composed of highly intelligent people. The Unification
ideology has been taught around the world.
Now if you are strong and stand up with great confidence and
proclaim, "I have a teaching that will bring salvation to the
world," you will be able to move all four directions of the
atmosphere. Why? It is because spirit world is helping so much now.
Many thousands of your ancestors are following you and helping you.
When you work with a serious attitude, you immediately receive
assistance from them. No matter how difficult the situation you may
encounter, you can overcome it with that kind of help.
God now has creation power. Satan can no longer accuse you when you
stand up for God's purposes. He has no more condition. There is no one
in the whole world who can stop God's work which we are doing. That is
because of our powerful foundation. How will we move up from the tribal
level to the national and world level?
The spirit world doesn't sleep. They want to extend the foundation
on the earth-your foundation. That is the purpose of God and the spirit
world-all your ancestors. They are always looking to move forward, so
how can they stop to take rest? You must understand clearly that this
kind of atmosphere is constantly working for your benefit. Now that
time has come.
So the cry is, "Move forward, march on!" Always God is
giving us that kind of atmosphere. You have to have that kind of large
viewpoint. How long has God worked to see the time which is now at
hand, the time which we are dwelling in now? We must grab this moment
and march forward with it. This is our mission. Do you follow me?
We must fulfill human responsibility, from the individual level to
the family, tribe, nation and world. All areas need the fulfillment of
that responsibility. That means the spirit world is helping you to
fulfill. Now you know this clearly, right? No matter how difficult your
situation may appear, you must always remember that you have the
victorious formula which God has given to you. Why do you ever
Don't think you can be proud that you are a citizen of the great
nation of America, or that you are a graduate of some university such
as Harvard. God doesn't need that kind of accomplishment and Satan
doesn't recognize or fear such a thing. All you need is to learn to
embody God's loving heart; that is the simple rule. Until now, people
did not understand that point but through the teaching of True Parents,
you have come to know this precisely. No one can change this truth,
including the strongest forces of Satan. You must not doubt this.
You must make this foundation a part of your own tradition and
customs. Do not listen to Satan's temptations. Always say, "I
decide what to do based on the teachings of True Parents from
God." You are carrying the banner of God's love, so you must hold
it up high and never let it fall to the ground or be stepped on. You
have to stand up for God and True Parents, always asking this one
question, "How can I inherit God's true love?" How can you
achieve this during your lifetime, not only within yourself but also
your family, nation, world?
This is the most precious gospel. How precious? You can never buy
such a thing, even with every asset the fallen world has to offer.
Nothing in the world can be exchanged for this gospel. Within this
simple teaching everything good and true can be obtained which the
world is yearning for: ideal world, true relationship with God, God's
love. You know that clearly. Satan doesn't like this at all but of
course God welcomes it. That is why God wants us to work hard at this
time so that we can bring the victory now.
Today is Parents' Day and our topic includes our path as well.
Today we have come to the poignant realization of the true meaning of
Parents' Day and we also must pledge ourselves to the ultimate
fulfillment of God's will and the True Parents' wishes. Shall we do
it? Thank you and God bless you.
Dr. Pak: Father spoke to you today in your native language and
this is a great blessing. When the year 1990 comes, you must be able to
listen to Father without an interpreter. Do you pledge that you will
understand the true mother tongue by 1990? Let us pray.
