Those of you who have read the entire collection of my sermons, raise your hands. You dreadful bunch of people! How did you educate them, nation-al leader? I could not even say the deeper contents in those sermons. I cannot express them now, either. You must know how precious these words are and that the source of life is contained within them. It is not a source of spring water. It is not just any kind of water. And it is not river water. You should know that this source of life is flowing away. It is the Unificationists’ responsibility to find a way to have this eternal water of life by groping for a way to connect the water pipes to this source. But what have you done? Are all of those books something that you can just sell to an antique book shop? (181-268, 1988.10.3)

Richard: Rev. Moon speaks strongly here on the value of the Completed Testament scriptures that he has revealed. Yet many Unification Church members are OK that Mrs. Moon has adulterated the Holy Scriptures by rewriting and changing them and creating her own new theology. On the other hand, Hyung Jin Moon does not preach on the Holy Scriptures either, and has introduced the concept of the mostly Old Testament based Rod Of Iron Ministry.

When you visit a place, do you sprinkle holy salt before you sit down? If not, you should establish a condition in which you inwardly blow three times, “whew, whew, whew” before taking your seat. When you see a handsome man in the satanic world, rather than thinking, “I would like to live with this man,” you should be able to blow him away from you, even if he holds your hand. You should sprinkle holy salt, that is, inwardly blow three times, “whew, whew, whew.” You should sprinkle holy salt three times. (170-233, 1987.11.21)

Richard: We should live a sanctified life.

God’s Grief

If God is our Divine Parent and we human beings are his children, then surely God must feel great sadness of heart over his children’s bondage, degradation and rebellion. thus, religious traditions that revere a personal, compassionate God recognize God to have an aspect of sorrow. in Christianity, Jesus’ passion has regularly represented the suffering of God, as the Father is one with his son. although the biblical witness to God’s grief is sometimes eclipsed by the Aristotelian conception that perfection requires that God be impassible, contemporary theologians are affirming that the creator also suffers. in Mahayana Buddhism, the compassion of Shakyamuni and the commiseration of the bodhisattvas for human suffering stems from the heart of the cosmic buddha who is the Father of all humanity.
For Father Moon, to know God means to experience God’s painful and grieving heart: broken at the Fall, sorrowful that his children continue to live in darkness, tortured by the power and arrogance of evil that holds his children in thrall, and agonized at the thorny path that his saints must walk as they strive to fulfill the providence and attain liberation. by attaining such knowledge, we can become compassionate ourselves, and persevering in the struggle to liberate humanity.

1. God’s Grief over the Human Fall and Humankind’s Sinful Condition

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him to His heart.27
    Genesis 6.5-6
And it came to pass that the God of heaven looked upon the residue of His people, and He wept; and Enoch bore record of it, saying, “How is it that the heavens weep, and shed forth their tears as the rain upon the mountains?” And Enoch said unto the Lord, How is it that you can weep, seeing you are holy, and from all eternity to all eternity?”…
    The Lord said unto Enoch, “Behold these your brethren; they are the workmanship of My own hands, and I gave to them their knowledge… and commandment, that they should love one another, and that they should choose Me, their Father; but behold, they are without affection, and they hate their own blood; and the fire of My indignation is kindled against them; and in My hot displeasure will I send in the floods upon them… misery shall be their doom; and the whole heavens shall weep over them, even all the workmanship of My hands; therefore should not the heavens weep, seeing these shall suffer?”
    Pearl of Great Price, Moses 7.28-37 (Latter-Day Saints)
Abu Dharr reported God’s Messenger as saying, “I see what you do not see and I hear what you do not hear; heaven has groaned, and it has a right to groan.”
    Hadith of Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah (Islam) 
Whatever kind of regret I, Tsukihi [God], may have borne, until now I have overlooked it and kept still patiently…
Never think of this regret as slight! It is the result of the regret that has been accumulated and piled up.
All people of the whole world are My children. Although I single-heartedly love them, unaware of this, each and every one of them equally is thinking only of dust.
Think of the regret of God over these dusty minds! It is far beyond expression of My words.
    Ofudesaki 17.64-70 (Tenrikyo)
Abuk, mother of Deng,
Leave your home in the sky and come to work in our homes,
Make our country to become clean like theoriginal home of Deng,
Come make our country as one: the country of Akwol
Is not as one, either by night or by day,
The child called Deng, his face has become sad,
The children of Akwol have bewildered their Chief’s mind. 30
