There is No Freedom without Responsibility

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2106

You should not return home to live a
comfortable life alone. Upon your return
you should first organize the church.
Your sons and daughters should not be
objects of public scorn. They should not
be beggars relying on others for their
livelihood. You should assist them with
their living situations and teach them
the new tradition which was created by
shedding blood and sweat in order to
establish a foundation of truth and jus-
tice. Moreover, you will live only when
you invest yourself to save your clan and
they, in return, establish a foundation
for your settlement. Without inheritors
who are willing to sacrifice themselves,
the national foundation on which this
land of South Korea can remain as a
basis for the Kingdom of Heaven would
not exist. (177-163, 1988.5.17)

The only ideology that should remain
is Godism, which provides us with the
absolute ideal of love and the realm of
heart for our brothers and sisters in all
nations. Only Godism and no other
should govern this world! Amen! (137-196,
1986.1.1)

THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE HUMAN FALL

4.1 SATAN AND FALLEN HUMANITY
Satan is the name given to the Archangel Lucifer after he fell. When
the first human ancestors fell, they bound themselves in blood ties with
Lucifer. They formed a four position foundation yoked to Satan, and
thus all humanity became the children of Satan. Adam and Eve while still immature, however, they
fell and formed a four position foundation centering on Satan. Con-
sequently, this world has come under Satan’s sovereignty.
4.2 SATAN’S ACTIVITIES IN HUMAN SOCIETY
Even Satan cannot perpetrate his evil activity unless he first finds an object partner with whom he can
form a common base and engage in give and take action. Satan’s object
partners are evil spirits in the spirit world. The object partners to these
evil spirits are the spirit selves of evil people on the earth, and the vehi-
cles through which these evil spirit selves act are their physical selves.
Accordingly, the power of Satan is conveyed through evil spirits and is
manifested in the activities of earthly people.
4.5 SIN
Sin is a violation of heavenly law which is committed when a per-
son forms a common base with Satan, thus setting a condition for give
and take action with him. Sin can be classified into four kinds. The first
is the original sin. The second is hereditary sin. The third is collective sin. The fourth is individual sin.
4.6 THE PRIMARY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FALLEN NATURE
Eve inherited from the Archangel all the proclivities incidental to his
transgression against God when he bound her in blood ties through
their sexual relationship. Adam in turn acquired the same inclinations
when Eve, assuming the role of the Archangel, bound him in blood ties
through their sexual relationship. These proclivities have become the
root cause of the fallen inclinations in all people. They are the prima-
ry characteristics of our fallen nature. The primary characteristics of the fallen nature can be divided
broadly into four types. The first is failing to take God’s standpoint. The second is leaving one’s proper position. The third is reversing dominion. The fourth is multiplying the criminal act.
FREEDOM AND THE HUMAN FALL
5.1 THE MEANING OF FREEDOM FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF THE PRINCIPLE
First, there is no freedom outside the Principle. Second, there is no freedom without responsibility. Third, there is no freedom without accomplishment. It cannot be that freedom caused the human Fall.
THE REASONS GOD DID NOT INTERVENE IN THE FALL
OF THE FIRST HUMAN ANCESTORS
God, being omniscient and omnipotent, must have known about the
deviant acts of the first human ancestors which were leading to their
Fall. Why, then, did God not intervene to prevent the Fall?
6.1 TO MAINTAIN THE ABSOLUTENESS AND PERFECTION
OF THE PRINCIPLE OF CREATION
6.2 THAT GOD ALONE BE THE CREATOR
6.3 TO MAKE HUMAN BEINGS THE LORDS OF CREATION
