All North Korean citizens are
equipped with Kim Il-sung’s Juche ide-
ology. We must equip ourselves with the
ideology of true love that is capable of
assimilating them. North Korea is a part
of northern civilization which has been
influenced by the cold winds of soviet
civilization. We must work to naturally
melt them with our temperate zone civi-
lization. Otherwise, both our countries
will come to ruin. Thus, we must thor-
oughly equip ourselves with the ideol-
ogy of true love. This ideology must not
be one that seeks the fulfillment of indi-
vidual desires, but must rather seek the
salvation of all humanity. It must not
be self-centered, but instead serve the
greater good. Communists have the idea
that everyone should work for the sake
of a few top party leaders. This is why
they eliminate any person who stands
out as a potential rival. We are not that
way. Our idea is to unite with the cor-
responding environment in order to
establish a higher reciprocal standard,
that is, for Cain and Abel to unite so
as to receive their parents who are on
a higher level. In other words, we must
become able to impress them with how
we live. We must be able to amaze those
people equipped with communist ideol-
ogy in terms of our view of life and our
standard of character.

If you have the opportunity to attend
a Blessing Ceremony, you should not go
thinking you are just a man or a wom-
an and there is nothing else to it. When
you attend the ceremony, you are there
representing men and women who have
come and gone in the world over the past
six thousand years. You must under-
stand that you have been invited as such.
You should experience this reality deep
in your heart. (30-169, 1970. 3.22)

After the initial passage into the afterlife, there is another, less comfortable event. each individual undergoes a judgment where he must review his life with unsparing honesty. there is a ledger recording every deed, and its consequences on the people it affected. now that book is opened and read. the movie that re-corded the person’s life is projected onto the screen of his mind. everything comes to light.
The main criterion of judgment seems to be the deeds. Did the person live more to benefit others, or did he use others to benefit himself? scriptures describe a trial scene, with God as judge, Jesus or Muhammad as defense attorney, and sometimes the devil as prosecutor. God is bound to pass sentence based upon the evi-dence. on this point, Father Moon offers a unique insight: to overcome satan’s accusation at the judgment, we should win over the person or persons who most hate and accuse us on earth. he calls it loving ‘Cain.’
Scriptures describe a gate that only the righteous may enter, a “bridge of the separator” that only the righteous may cross, and a fire that burns up all falsehood and leaves only what is genuine. the spirit world has various abodes, heavens and hells, welcoming the soul according to its condition. spirits are sorted out, and each goes to its appropriate place. no guards are required to keep out the unworthy; no policemen to direct traffic, for each person naturally goes to the place most fitting to his or her character and past life.
- The Life Review
For God will bring every deed into judgment,
with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
For nothing is covered that will not be revealed,
or hidden that will not be known.
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who
sat upon it; from His presence earth and sky
fled away, and no place was found for them.
And I saw the dead, great and small, standing
before the throne, and books were opened. Also
another book was opened, which is the book
of life. And the dead were judged by what was
written in the books, by what they had done.
When the earth is shaken with her earthquake
And the earth yields up her burdens,
And man says, “What ails her?”
That day she will relate her chronicles
Because your Lord inspires her.
That day mankind will issue forth in scattered
groups to be shown their deeds.
And whoever has done good, an atom’s weight
will see it then,
And whoever has done ill, an atom’s weight
will see it then.
And every man’s augury have We fastened to
his own neck, and We shall bring forth for him
on the Day of Resurrection a book which he will
find wide open. “Read your book! Your soul suf-
fices as a reckoner against you this day.”
After you depart this life, God shall demand a
reckoning of your deeds
That in His ledger are recorded.
Those that are rebellious, shall be summoned.
Azrael, the angel of death, will hover over
And trapped in a blind alley they will know not
Saith Nanak, Falsehood must be destroyed;
Truth in the end shall prevail.
Adi Granth, Ramkali-ki-Var 13, M.1, p. 953 (Sikhism)
On the day when man’s time arrives to depart
from the world, when the body is broken and
the soul seeks to leave it, on that day man is
privileged to see things that he was not permit-
ted to see before, when the body was in full vigor.
Three messengers stand over him and take an
account of his life and of all that he has done
in this world, and he admits all with his mouth
and signs the account with his hand… as it is
written, “that every man should acknowledge
his works.” (Job 37:7)
