Whose children are these different
races? They have only one parent. God,
who is with us wherever we go – whether
north, south, east, or west – in the uni-
verse, is the Father of humankind.
Thus, it would be a mistake for any-
one to think that white, black, or yellow
people are the owners of America. God
is the owner of America. This is also true
for Korea. Differences in skin color are
nothing more than the result of having
to adapt to different climates and envi-
ronments in different parts of the globe.
In areas with large amounts of snowfall,
we find mainly white people. Conversely,
in places such as Africa where the rays of
the sun are particularly bright, we find
mainly black people. Fundamentally,
though, people are the same.

The problem here, however, is that
evil spirits are dominating the body. Evil
spirits are rooted in the body and good
spirits in the mind. From this comes
the division of materialism and ideal-
ism. The things that people talk about in
this world do not just spring up like that.
As the time approaches, sinners should
confess their sins. They should come
clean about who they are.
The Path In Search of the Original Homeland Rev. Sun Myung Moon July 5, 1959
The direction that man is taking and has taken in history is not the direction of Heaven. It is the opposite. For that reason, Heaven more than once blocked the way in order to put humanity to rights. God set up the familial standard by raising up Noah. Even if Heaven had to annihilate the whole of humanity, Heaven blocked everything that was not right and tried to lead Noah’s family in the direction of Heaven. However, owing to Ham’s mistake, Heaven could not restore Noah’s family.
What about Abraham? Heaven had led Noah out to restore the original hometown. Noah was pitiable. Abraham left the mountains and rivers of his homeland, Ur of the Chaldeans, and wandered about to find the blessed land of Canaan. He was pitiable, too, wasn’t he? Not only Abraham, but Jacob and Moses were in the same pitiable situation. How would God have felt in His heart after driving Moses out of Egypt into the wasteland of the wilderness in order to restore the people of the original hometown? Nobody knew the heart of God, who was more grieved, more mortified, and more deeply pierced with lamentation than Moses was when He drove the Israelites out from Egypt. Who would have known that such was God’s heart? If Moses, who was leading the nation out, had gone forward unchanged, intoxicated in God’s heart, the incident of striking the rock twice would never have occurred. We know the lamentable fact that because Moses could not connect with Heaven’s heart, at that moment Moses himself blocked the way of the nation.
Heaven drove Noah out to restore the original family. He, too, was pitiable and fell short. So was Abraham, whom Heaven drove out to establish the land of blessing.
What happened to Jacob, who was pining for the land of the original hometown? When death came near in Egypt, his dying wish was that his bones be buried in his hometown. How much pining for his hometown does that show? He did not want even the water trickling down from his decomposed remains to be left in the enemy’s land. You must know that Jacob felt such precious pride in being of the chosen people.
Let’s look at Moses again. God drove Moses away to restore the original nation. How much do you think God wished to live in that nation? However, Moses could not realize the will.
The people who were raised up to do so could not uphold the will of God and failed. God’s intention was to restore the whole of the world by building a people and a nation after restoring the family and mountains and rivers of the original hometown. Yet even with these failures, the will emerges in its own way, outfitting itself conditionally for a bigger scope.
Even if the realization of the will of God was to be delayed, Heaven sent the Messiah to straighten things out and build an original nation. But then what happened to that Messiah?
How ardently do you think Jesus wished to establish the heavenly sovereignty for God on this earth? Yet how did the Israelites treat Jesus? The Israelites were to build a nation of original nature centering around Jesus. They were to become the heavenly soldiers marching toward Satan and his minions and to be the elite soldiers of Heaven. What did they do?
Jesus’ death was a forced separation, an unreasonable parting. I think of it that way. Therefore, the fathers of our faith have absolutely nothing to be proud of. The chosen people were not supposed to kill Jesus. Jesus’ path was not supposed to be like that, a path of arbitrary separation.
