It is the same with the nation. A
nation has a hierarchy with the presi-
dent at the center. In the organization of
a nation there is the ministry of educa-
tion, which is a group of true teachers.
The administration is like the owner of
the nervous system. Because the entire
system of nerves converges upon the
administration, it should be in the posi-
tion of the owner. The president at the
top is the master of the nation. All of
this is incorporated into the three-sub-
ject ideology.
Hence, True Parents always stand in
the vertical position while the education
ministry and administration are in a
reciprocal relationship with each other.
These relationships can be compared to
that of Cain and Abel. When Cain and
Abel become completely one, this right
of kingship will become an eternal and
indestructible right of kingship. Kim Il-
sung has his own version of three-sub-
ject ideology, which is autonomy, cre-
ativity, and consciousness. However, this
is human-centered; it cannot be consid-
ered a complete ideology, for it lacks the
doctrine of the Original Being. They do
not know God. With this understand-
ing, you should march forward with
strength. (208-341, 1990.11.21)

Richard: The ideology of the Black Lives Matters movement is not God-centered. Rather, in is Marxist. Marxists do not believe in God, and believe that progress occurs through violence.

God wants everyone reborn. From
His position, He is trying to bring all
of humanity, which is still in the realm
of Satan’s false love, to His side through
His greater love. Since all humankind
was born through the parents, ances-
tors and lineage of false love, they need
to be reborn through the parents, ances-
tors and lineage of true love. In this way,
they can become the children of God
and the people of God’s Kingdom. The
precious blood of Jesus and the ritual of
the Last Supper all symbolize the provi-
dence of becoming the children of God
through the conversion of the lineage.
(135-12, 1985.8.20)

Richard: All must convert their lineage through the Holy Blessing of Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife, the True Parents: .

The Purpose of Human Life

For God’s Good Pleasure

  1. God’s Joy in Human Beings

God saw everything that he had made, and
behold, it was very good.
Genesis 1.31

I was a secret treasure, and I created the crea-
tures in order that I might be known.
Hadith (Islam)

O Lord of all, hail unto Thee!
The Soul of all, causing all acts,
Enjoying all, all life art Thou!
Lord of all pleasure and delight!
Maitri Upanishad 5.1 (Hinduism)

Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love.
It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone,
but requires all mankind to share it.
Science and Health, 57 (Christian Science)

As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so shall your God rejoice over you.
Isaiah 62.5

When all human beings have accomplished the
purification of their minds and come to lead
a life full of joy, I, Tsukihi (God), will become
cheered up. And when I become cheered up, so

will all human beings. When the minds of all
the world become cheered up, God and human
beings will become altogether cheered up in one
Ofudesaki 7.109-111 (Tenrikyo)

What is man that thou art mindful of him,
and the son of man that thou dost care for
Yet thou hast made him little less than God,
and dost crown him with glory and honor.
Psalm 8.4-5

The Messenger of Allah said: “God says: I have
created human beings to win, not for Me be the

Brahma’s creative activity is not undertaken by
way of any need on His part, but simply by way
of sport.
Vedanta Sutra 2.1.32-33 (Hinduism)

We created not the heaven and the earth and all
that is between them in play. If We had wished
to find a pastime, We could have found it in Our
presence—if We ever did. Nay, but We hurl the
true against the false, and it prevails over it, and
lo! [the false] vanishes…
To Him belongs whosoever is in the heavens
and the earth. And those who dwell in His
presence are not too proud to worship Him, nor
do they weary.
Qur’an 21.16-19

Having created the world and all that lives and
moves therein, He, through the direct opera-
tion of His unconstrained and sovereign Will,
chose to confer upon man the unique distinc-
tion and capacity to know Him and to love
Him—a capacity that must needs be regarded
as the generating impulse and the primary pur-
pose underlying the whole of creation.
