Man’s love, woman’s love, son’s love, daughter’s love, parents’ love and God’s love are all included in the original ideal family foundation. Whoever loves their parents, spouse and children in such harmonized circumstances leads a heavenly life. (Blessed Family – 946)

Since Adam lost faith and substance, he can only find love after he has restored the foundation of faith and the foundation of substance. So what did Adam lose? First, he lost faith, and then he lost substance, and lastly he lost love. These three things were lost. We need to find them. (65-314, 1973.3.4)

Judge Not

Before judging someone, study him for at least three years. (Way of God’s Will 2.2)

Do not criticize others; the problem is within you. A weak point of young people is that their minds are stretched out in all directions, like tree branches. Do you know what I mean? They are perceptive and quick; after one glance they are quick to make comments. However, they tend to overlook themselves. 
    Therefore, before you criticize someone, you should first find three points to criticize in yourself. Be only one-third as critical of that person as you are of yourself. (25:93-94, September 30, 1969)Do not judge anyone in your heart. You yourself are a sinner, a priest who failed to complete your responsibility; so how can you judge others? (89:268, December 4, 1976)

When you receive God’s grace, you should use it to fight Satan on behalf of God, with the heart of Heaven’s indignation. You should not judge other people based on your opinions. To enjoy the grace you received [while passing judgment on others who received less] is not the right attitude of faith. If you do so, you will not be able to walk the path acceptable to God. (2:200-01, May 19, 1957)

If you are deficient in your character, listen to other people’s testimonies to make up for it. Listen to them, absorb their experiences as your own, and strengthen your character thereby. You should learn from many people’s experiences. Do not criticize their testimonies after hearing them. To criticize means to set yourself up as determining whether it is on the side of Satan or God. But in so doing, it is you who are split to be either on Satan’s side or God’s side. Therefore, criticism is like cancer to your growth. (76:141, February 2, 1975)

Examine yourself. Before you speak ill of another, you should look at whether you have that problem. Before you point the finger at another, you should first point it at yourself. Only when you can give yourself a perfect score on every point are you in a position to judge others as you wish.
    Jesus taught this when he encountered the men who were about to stone to death a woman who had committed adultery. He said to them, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone,” and they all ran away.
    Doesn’t this also apply to you? You women should not praise your own offspring while criticizing other people’s children. Rather, you should regard yourself as representing all womankind, and love every mother’s child as your own. It is the same with you men. (118:245, June 6, 1982)
