“Our family…attending God and True Parents…by centering on true love.” You must attend God and True Parents. However, because Eve fell, God and True Parents were driven out of Adam’s family. You must attend God and True Parents. God is the vertical Parent and perfected Adam and Eve are the horizontal parents. On the foundation of these two parents having become one, you achieve unity and are connected to God and to heaven. For this reason, nothing can be accomplished unless you attend God and True Parents. So, through becoming one with God and True Parents, you can create a family representing heaven and earth. That family holds a higher position than that held by Adam and Eve before the Fall. (260-189, 1994.5.8)

When I came out of Danbury prison, I prepared a situation where black and white, united through Jerry Falwell, centered on me. The thief on the right and the thief on the left were fighting with each other, but I united them. This is all restoration through indemnity. That is why during the 120 days (three times four is twelve) following my release from Danbury, all of the world media had to determine their direction. During this period I had to slap the American media on the cheek using the Washington Times. That is why I founded the magazine Insight and another monthly magazine [World and I] . This latter magazine was made to involve professors from all over the world. I think people from the intellectual circles have already made their judgment concerning the Washington Post and the Washington Times. (138-305, 1986.1.24)
Richard: Media has played a major role in this election. Rev. Sun Myung Moon was way ahead of his time, founding the Washington Times in 1982, and before that the News World in New York City. Also the World and I magazine in 1986, plus Insight magazine. Unfortunately, the Washington Times has slipped from its unbiased news coverage, in my opinion, and the World and I is no longer published or online, nor Insight magazine. However, the need for unbiased media continues. The New World Encyclopedia, another project initiated by Father Moon is still online here. I do currently enjoy the Epoch Times as an alternative. You can currently get a four month subscription for $1 . World Tribune is also a good alternative news source.
Another issue is the lack of integrity, or a God-centered worldview to unite left and right. Elected officials of all stripes should be up in arms over the current election fraud. It matters not whether they label themselves Democrat, Republican, Independent or other. Right is right, wrong is wrong. Where are the brave officials of all stipes who will speak up and do the right thing? The God-centered worldview that can unite right and left has been proffered by Rev. Moon, but most did not listen. See my series on The Family Rooted in Absolute Sexual Ethics.
2. The Pervasiveness of Sin
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 1.8
Nor do I absolve my own self of blame; the human soul is certainly prone to evil, unless my Lord do bestow His mercy.
All men, both Jews and Greeks, are under the power of sin, as it is written,
None is righteous, no, not one;
no one understands, no one seeks for God.
All have turned aside, together they have gone wrong;
no one does good, not even one.
No creature, whether born on earth or among the gods in heaven, is free from the conditioning of the three states of matter (gunas).
Bhagavad-Gita 18.40 (Hinduism)
Confucius said, “I for my part have never yet seen one who really cared for Goodness, nor one who really abhorred wickedness. One who really cared for Goodness would never let any other consideration come first. One who abhorred wickedness would be so constantly doing Good that wickedness would never have a chance to get at him. Has anyone ever managed to do Good with his whole might even as long as the space of a single day? I think not. Yet I for my part have never seen anyone give up such an attempt because he had not the strength to go on.”
Analects 4.6 (Confucianism)
As sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
When the first couple were punished by the judgment of God, the whole human race, which was to become Adam’s posterity through the first woman, was present in the first man. And what was born was not human nature as it was originally created but as it became after the first parents’ sin and punishment… so changed and vitiated that it suffers from the recalcitrance of a rebellious concupiscence and is bound by the law of death.
Saint Augustine, City of God 13.3 (Christianity)
