As we learn in the Principle, during
the Old Testament Age material things
were sacrificed to pave the way for the
sons and daughters to come and in the
New Testament Age sons and daughters
were offered as sacrifices to pave the way
for the coming of the parent, the return-
ing Lord. Why did the Parents suffer in
the Completed Testament Age? They
walked the suffering path in order to
bring God down to this earth. My life-
long dream is to bring God down to this
I was not able to attend God in my
hometown. So I must go back to my
hometown holding high the flag of
global victory. There is an evil lord of
the second coming in North Korea; an
evil parent. Thus Kim Il-sung is called
the “beloved parent.” What does the
word parent mean? Because Satan knew
that True Parents would appear in South
Korea, and that True Parents’ home-
towns are in North Korea, he wanted to
attack and kill the True Parents through
North Korea. This is why Gorbachev and
Kim Il-sung conspired together to assas-
sinate me. In February of 1987, they dis-
patched twenty-five Red Army soldiers
to America, and the spirit world caught
them carrying my home address. The
CIA caught them, and while they were
being investigated I entered Moscow.

What is the Fall? God desired through
the ideal of creation to bequeath His
direct lineage, starting from a family
to form a tribe, people and a nation, to
create a world of peace, namely God’s
Kingdom on earth and in heaven. What
is God’s Kingdom on earth and in heav-
en? There must be a house of love where
God can dwell: within my body, in the
family, nation, world, and in the infinite
spirit world where nothing is impos-
sible. The individual is a house which
God can enter and inhabit, centered on
true love. The family is formed by a cou-
ple in which man and woman are differ-
ent and opposite poles. In the Garden of
Eden, the family united by love was the
place for God to come to dwell in. The
mother and father were prepared to bear
fruit – God’s grandchildren – as the seed
connected to His lineage for all genera-

Richard: What a beautiful ideal of creation! Yet this world is far from that ideal, with the proliferation of sexual deviation and sex outside of marriage. And the assault on the two-parent family.

Part 1
God and Creation

Chapter 1

The Original Cause

The First Cause of all existence did not merely create the world long ago and let it run on its own steam ever since. God is sustaining and moving the world, continually causing reality from moment to moment. Furthermore, as the Cause, God determines the purpose and qualities of all beings. In this regard, Father Moon teaches that as the Cause of human beings, God is a personal God who created human beings with characteristics resembling Himself. Nothing exists apart from a pre-ordained purpose and goal, towards which it moves by God’s unseen hand. This means that God is also the cause of history. Father Moon points out that history moves in accordance with God’s purpose—a divine providence governed by definite laws and that advances towards a clear goal. When the world reaches that goal, the Cause (God) and the effect (humanity) will be one.

1. The Cause of All Existence

I am the nucleus of every creature, Arjuna; for without me nothing can exist, neither animate nor inanimate… Wherever you find strength, or beauty, or spiritual power, you may be sure that these have sprung from a spark of my essence. Bhagavad-Gita 10.39, 41 (Hinduism)

There is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist. 1 Corinthians 8.6

The loving sage beholds that Mysterious Existence wherein the universe comes to have one home; Therein unites and therefrom issues the whole: The Lord is the warp and woof in created beings. White Yajur Veda 32.8 (Hinduism)

Surely it is He who originates, and brings again, and He is the All-forgiving, the All-loving, Lord of the Throne, the All-glorious, Performer of what He desires. Qur’an 85.13-16

Eternally He doles out gifts; Those receiving them at last can receive no more. Infinitely the creation receives from Him sustenance. He is the Ordainer; By His Ordinance the universe He runs. Says Nanak, Ever is He in bliss, Ever fulfilled. Adi Granth, Japuji 3, M.1, p. 2 (Sikhism)

If God removed His hand the world would end. Proverb (African Traditional Religions)

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Before we were born, God designed our eyes, ears, mouth, etc., so that they might perceive andknow all that exists in this world. Could human beings have known beforehand everything theyneeded to live? There must be a Being, omniscient and transcendent of human beings, who kneweverything. That Being is God. (Way of God’s Will)

God is the Causal Being of the universe. He is the Causal Being of all faculties. He is the Causal Being who adds energy. He is the Causal Being who gives direction and purpose… He presents a purpose with a direction always centered on His deep motivation, and He keeps this position without wavering. That is why, if we begin from the Cause and fix on His direction, we can move to the world that fulfills His purpose. (89:75-76, July 11, 1976)

Everything about human beings—alive with consciousness, pursuing goodness and higher value, and having a sense of sorrow and sadness—began from their Origin, not from themselves. In this resultant human life, we are going through the process of connecting with the original Cause. (140:123, February 9, 1986)

For anything on this earth to exist, there must be a cause that enables it to exist. The community in which we live, our nation and the entire visible world are each different levels of effect. The complexity of connections that form each of these environments must have developed from a cause. Human beings create societies, nations and the world. Yet, the fundamental cause that formed human beings does not lie within us. Without a doubt, we are resultant beings. We were formed from some preexisting motivation and content. We came from a cause. God is the First Cause. How do you think He created human beings? God made us in His image, like Himself. That means the Father resembles us just as we resemble the Father. So when someone
asks you, “What kind of being is God?” you can answer, “He is someone like me.” This answer will hit the mark. (127:233)

Every individual has unlimited hope, unlimited ambition, and unlimited ideals. For we resultant beings to be this way, there first had to be a causal being that possesses these qualities. The causal being is a real existence. We call it God. God is a personal God; therefore, God can be the total motivation and cause for us human
beings. Because God, the Cause, possesses such a nature, human beings, who are the effect, must necessarily possess the same nature. It stands to reason that one day, God—the cause—and we human beings—the effect—will become so inseparable that nothing can tear us apart. That day of reunion must appear in the human world. God has kept this cherished desire as He sought for humanity. (28:282-83, February 11, 1970)
