You Therefore Must Be Perfect, as Your Heavenly Father Is Perfect

Watch or listen to the second part of the series on the Richard Urban Show, Why Abstinence Matters:
We Have Become Diseased both Spiritually and Physically.

You have much to learn of the logic
of true love. When we look at the faces
of the ardent members of the Unification
Church, they look like they are in their
forties, even though they have reached
fifty. Some even look like they’re only in
their thirties. That’s why, the more you
love, the younger you become.
Our earthly outer shell ages, yet the
more we exchange conjugal love, the
more our spirit selves are rejuvenated.
Let me elaborate further: the longer we
live in love, our inner selves, our spir-
it selves, mature to become handsome
men and beautiful women. We are to
discard our outer shell like clothing, but
what would we do if the shell got young-
er and clung on to us? Our outer shells
begin to malfunction and become use-
less, but our inner cores become firm
and are then transformed into beautiful
heirs of the future like autumn chest-
nuts. When fall comes, the once-hard
chestnut ripens while the bur softens
and splits, allowing the chestnut to fall.
It’s the same for us. (164-101, 1987.4.26)

The large holy wedding conducted by
the Unification Church is not restrict-
ed to our church alone. It is the for-
mula course that all humanity must go
through. You must clearly understand
this. Then, what is the fundamental rea-
son for having to follow this course?
The reason is that our human ancestors
fell. If they had not fallen, there would
be no need for us to receive the Blessing
today. However, because of the Fall we
now have to follow the course of restora-
tion, through which we can return to the
dominion of God. So, we have no choice
but to walk this path. This is the reason
why people today still believe in religion.
This is what has been sought throughout
history. (35-215, 1970.10.19)

2. Perfection Is Unity with God

You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heav-
enly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5.48

No one born of God commits sin; for God’s
nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because
he is born of God.
1 John 3.9

Sincerity [Absolute Truth] is the Way of Heaven;
the attainment of Sincerity is the Way of man.
He who possesses Sincerity achieves what is
right without effort, understands without think-
ing, and naturally and easily is centered on the
Way. He is a sage.
Doctrine of the Mean 20.18 (Confucianism)

Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him,
and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if you
shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and love
God with all your might, mind, and strength,
then is His grace sufficient for you, that by His
grace you may be perfect in Christ; and if by the
grace of God you are perfect in Christ, you can
in no way deny the power of God.
Book of Mormon, Moroni 10.32-33
(Latter-day Saints)

Blessed is the man who trusts in the l ord ,
whose trust is the l ord .
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.
Jeremiah 17.7-8

The Master is a tree of contentment and
Righteousness its flower, enlightenment the fruit.
This tree by joy in God keeps ever fresh and
By practice of meditation is it ripened.
With joy in the Lord is it consumed,
By such as dispense the supreme charity of self-
less action.
Adi Granth, Var Majh, M.1, p. 147 (Sikhism)

By fullness of leadership,
the Wise Lord shall grant powerful communion
Of perfection and Immortality,
of Right, Dominion and Good Thought—
To him who is a sworn friend;
to him by spirit and by actions!
Clear are these to the man of insight,
as to a knowing one by mind.
He upholds good Dominion,
and Right by words and by actions.
He, O Lord of Wisdom,
shall be Thy most helping associate!
Avesta, Yasna 31.21-22 (Zoroastrianism)

Lao Tan said, “I was letting my mind wander in
the beginning of things.”
“What does this mean?” asked Confucius.
Lao Tan said, “It means to attain Perfect
Beauty and wander in Perfect Happiness. He
who attains Perfect Beauty and wanders in
Perfect Happiness may be called the Perfect
Chuang Tzu 21 (Taoism)

The Supreme Soul (Paramatman) is free from
birth, old age and death; he is supreme, pure
and devoid of the eight karmas; he possesses
infinite knowledge, intuition, bliss and potency;
he is indivisible, indestructible and inexhaust-
ible. He transcends the senses and is supreme;
he is free from obstructions, merit, demerit and
rebirth; he is eternal, steady and independent.
Kundakunda, Niyamasara 176-77 (Jainism)
