#129-Sliding IS Deciding
Cheon Seong Gyeong 107
What is the universe? It is like God’s visible body. It is an extension of God’s being. This is why the idea emerges that we can truly love. In other words, loving the universe is a very real experience. You stroke your hair like this, don’t you? When you get some dirt on your clothes, you brush it off, right? Why do you do this? Because they form a part of you. Because they are one with you, you have that attitude. From now on, you should bring God into the middle of your heart and build a unified world where your mind is one, your body is one, and all things are one. (86-173, 1976.3.28)

Christ at his Second Advent is coming to save humanity. Once the heavenly standard has been established, God is ready to strike. He takes the offensive. That does not mean that He kills His foes by executing them in the style of Stalin; instead, He makes them surrender at once. He must make Satan submit to Him, firstly through His ideology, secondly through His citizenry, thirdly through His sovereignty, and fourthly through His territory. Everyone desires to have ideals, friends, power, and money, and these four items represent the four that have been listed above. (12-169, 1963.3.16)
Richard: God’s plan of salvation is practical and follows natural law and the principles that God created. We are not going to float up into the sky ‘when Christ returns’. No, rather, we will work together to build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
The Unification Principle and Eight Textbooks presented by Rev. Sun Myung Moon compose the New Truth, the ideology. Like minded people, working together towards God’s will are the citizens. When you and I work to influence others with this New Truth, and with love, that is God’s sovereignty. Finally, our possessions, dedicated to God, comprise the possessions of the Kingdom of God.
Original Substance of the Divine Principle
The Human Fall
Sin is a violation of heavenly law which is committed when a person forms a common base with Satan and sets a condition allowing give and receive action with him.
There are four categories of sin, and there are four fallen natures that we all need to work and reverse to become godly people. There is no freedom without responsibility. Freedom did not cause the fall.
