Once you become one centered on God, circular motion manifests in all kinds of forms and figures. That is why the older sibling must love the younger, following the example of their parents loving the children. In a family that is united into one in love in that way, the love within the family blossoms. That love can become the love for a society, and then that love can become the love for a nation. In this way, it later becomes love for the entire world. However, these days, this has become so obscure. (28-170, 1970.1.11)

There should be no deviation from the origin of the universe. Yet, the devil intervened in Adam and Eve’s life before they grew up, that is, while they were still under age, around fifteen or sixteen years old, in their teens. At that time, when Eve looked quietly at the archangel Lucifer, she realized that he knew all the principles of heaven and earth. He was on errands for God, so he could speak about the creation of heaven and earth. On the other hand, Adam was distant. He was wandering around with a club catching birds, snakes and frogs. In the future he was supposed to dominate and control everything in the nature, so he was trying to get to know everything and adapt himself to everything; so was he interested in Eve? Even if she wanted to follow him, she couldn’t follow the strong male. So when she rested somewhere in a shade, Lucifer would whisper something to her and finally seduced and violated her.

3. To Trust in God and Live by Faith in Him
Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon
What kind of faith does God desire? When Jesus said, “Believe in me,” he meant we should believe in him as he believed in God. Jesus could say, “I am God’s Son, and I believe in God,” because as His Son, he was certain that God trusted him just as he trusted God his Father. (5:180, January 18, 1959)
Although you believe in Jesus as your Lord and the subject of your faith, it is not good if you just believe in Jesus and stop there. Believing in Jesus is just the first step on the walk of faith with Jesus, on whom you stake your eternal life. Once you have developed a living relationship of faith with Jesus, it becomes the basis to experience God as a living reality. If you genuinely believe in Jesus, then you can accomplish these things. (3:19, September 8, 1957)
When you declare that you believe in Jesus, does it mean that you only have to believe in the things that Jesus likes? Or do you also have to reject the things that Jesus hates? Surely, just as you have to do what Jesus likes, you must also reject what Jesus hates. What are the things that Jesus hates? They are, simply, Satan and sin. (124:294, March 1, 1983)
Unless you feel in your heart that God loves you, and unless you are so proud of these great words of God as to be eager to declare them throughout the universe, you cannot stand tall as God’s son or daughter. You must have absolute confidence that comes by trusting completely in God’s authority. (22:205, February 4, 1969)
Although we believe that God is our Heavenly Father, we should strive for the day when Heavenly Father, our Subject Partner, trusts us, His object partners, one hundred percent. We should take God’s purpose as our clear goal, and dash forward to reach it with one hundred percent conviction. This is the last significant problem that people of this era have to solve…
You know very well that the first human ancestors fell because they did not trust God. They fell because they did not have faith. (6:209-10, May 17, 1959)
Among people of faith, which of these three will God side with: The person who believes but does nothing? The person who has the conviction to act but acts negligently? Or the person translates his faith 100 percent into action, even courageously dedicating his life? Which type of person do you want to be? (92:312-13, April 24, 1977)
What is the most important experience in a life of faith? It is to feel that you are living a subject-object relationship with God. You experience that God exists, that He loves you. Then, honoring God as your Subject of faith, you become very serious to act in ways that make God take notice of you and support what you are doing. You must feel God’s presence with you so much that whenever you pray you feel gratitude to Him. Then indeed He is with you. You may not experience this in the beginning, but when you reach a certain level in your life of faith, you will feel it naturally. (58:312, June 25, 1972)
You have to remain faithful and keep your integrity towards Heaven even though you live in the satanic world. Have you ever regarded the children you are raising as God’s children? Have you ever thought that you and your spouse belong to God? Have you ever considered that your parents, your ancestors, your people, and your country all belong to God? Ignorant people on this earth are not aware that Heaven is moving the world towards this standard. (8:85, November 8, 1959)
May we gathered here today become people about whom Thou art able to say:
“You are the person I have hoped for.
You are someone I can trust and someone I can love.” (1:101, June 6, 1956)
