The Unification Church is now speaking of True Parents after having uncovered these facts that remained hidden throughout the ages. In accordance with the original view of the ideal of creation, the horizontal seat of the True Parents is the seat of God’s son and daughter. In other words, it is the seat of Adam and Eve. Then, what about God? If those who are like the body are Adam and Eve, the one who is in the seat of the father, who is like the vertical mind, is God.

As America represents the democratic world and the whole of humanity then, if it is to attain the heavenly standard of restoration through indemnity centered on the historical Christian cultural realm, what way of thinking should America have? It should be based on being determined to liberate God. It must have a conscientious heart in seeking the liberation of God. The True Parents who are to come, come as the incarnation of God, so America must attend the True Parents and love humankind more than its own people. Americans must love humankind more than their own people and nation. That is why, within America, there are numerous nationalities, peoples, tribes and families. (148-166, 1986.10.8)

Judaism

As the first great religion in God’s Providence, Judaism holds a unique place among the world’s religions. In ancient times, in an age darkened by idolatry, God called the Israelites and made with them an eternal covenant. Many Jews today are zealous to keep the laws of the covenant out of an intense faith and awe at God’s favor and their special destiny as the chosen people. Yet this uniqueness has always been balanced by a conviction that Judaism has a universal mission. The prophets declared that the Jews were not chosen for their own sake, but to bear the light of God’s truth to all nations. Amidst this tension between universalism and ethnocentrism that runs throughout Jewish history, Father Moon consistently calls on Judaism to take a global perspective.
The Jews have also suffered more than any other people. For two thousand years they wandered without a nation, oppressed and persecuted, culminating in the holocaust of six million. how could they continue to cling to God in the midst of their suffering? What meaning could it have in the context of God’s saving history? Father Moon addresses this question in several ways: it is God’s course of training to make them strong; it is to unify the Jewish people and draw them closer to God; it is to make them fit to lead the world to God.
Christians have always had difficulty coming to terms with Judaism, on account of its rejection of Jesus as the Messiah. Nevertheless, there is no excuse for Christian anti-Semitism, particularly since Jesus and the disciples were themselves Jews. Still, the genuine anguish of Saint Paul, who never ceased to care for his Jewish brethren even though in his view they lost their way by not receiving Christ, is echoed in Father Moon’s teaching. however, unlike Paul, Father Moon does not emphasize the conversion of the Jews. he teaches that Jews can fulfill God’s contemporary Will through interfaith solidarity, whereby Judaism, Christianity and Islam each retain their identity even as they forgive each other, love each other, and unite for world peace.
Father Moon is supportive of the modern state of Israel as a particular homeland for the Jewish people, but not at other people’s expense. He teaches that Israel’s survival and prosperity is possible only in the context of genuine peace and reconciliation with its Arab neighbors—thereby resolving a conflict with deep historical roots extending back to Israel’s biblical origin. Consistent with his restorations approach, he calls for Jews and Arabs to extend themselves to each other in love, going beyond self-interest

  1. The Chosen People
All Israel shall have a part in the world to come, as it is said, “And they people shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.” (Isa. 60:21)
    Mishnah, Sanhedrin 10.1
 
If you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my own possession among all peoples; for all the earth is mine, and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
    Exodus 19.5-6
O Children of Israel! Remember My favor with which I favored you, and fulfill your covenant, and I shall fulfill My covenant; and fear Me.
    Qur’an 2.40
 
The Holy One desired to make Israel worthy, so He gave them many laws and commandments.
    Mishnah, Makkot 3.16
 
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his own possession, out of all the peoples that are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the lord set his love upon you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples; but it is because the Lordl oves you, and is keeping the oath which he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know, therefore, that the lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments…
    And you shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know; that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but that man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the lord. Your clothing did not wear out upon you, and your foot did not swell, these forty years. Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you. So you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, by walking in his ways and by fearing him.
    Deuteronomy 7.6-9, 8.2-6
 
The Lord called me from the womb,
from the body of my mother he named my
name,
He made my mouth like a sharp sword,
in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
He made me a polished arrow,
in his quiver he hid me away.
And he said to me, “You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
“It is too light a thing that you should be my
servant
only to reestablish the tribes of Jacob
and to restore the survivors of Israel;
I will make you a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the end of the
earth.”
    Isaiah 49.1-3, 6
