The lips must be in focus, and the hands should also. If not, there will be trouble. No matter how big one’s mouth, it needs to be in line with the nose and the navel, and the most important part further down, the sexual organ. Look at yourselves in a mirror and see if yours are in line, and learn how you should live your lives.
From childhood, people need to be taught that, because this is the way it is, they need to be aware of such aspects. There are no textbooks that teach such things. I could go on and on talking about such things. (221-227, 1991.10.25)
Everything flows vertically, coming to fruition in the sexual organs. That is where everything is bound to come together, whether bad or good. Hence, those who use them well become people of goodness, and those who use them wrongly become the worst people. (280- 97, 1996.11.11)

- Our family, the owner of Cheon Il Guk, pledges, having entered the Completed Testament Age, to achieve the ideal of God and human beings united in love through absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and to perfect the realm of liberation and complete freedom in the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven, by centering on true love.
What are the contents of pledge number eight? “Our family, the owner of Cheon Il Guk, pledges, having entered the Completed Testament Age, to achieve the ideal of God and human beings united in love through absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and to perfect the realm of liberation and complete freedom in the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven, by centering on true love.” This pledge depicts the time of creation when God made the Garden of Eden.
Having entered the Completed Testament Age, through absolute faith, absolute love and absolute what? – obedience. You need to achieve the ideal oneness of God and humankind in love, and unity between God’s Kingdom on earth and in heaven. Then you are able to be freely active in all corners of the world, with the rights of God’s children. Only then can you presume to liberate Him and perfect the realm of liberation in God’s Kingdom on earth and in heaven. (301-85, 1999.4.16)

True Father’s Insights on God
Section 1. A God of Historical Bitterness, Grief and Pain
1.1. God lost the position of parent through the Fall
Our real father is God, but Satan usurped the father’s role. Therefore, Jesus said, “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.” Knowing the deplorable fact that you carry Satan’s blood, out of shame you should have the courage to put yourself through trials to rid yourself of that stained, false blood. Have you ever thought of doing so? If you are someone who strikes your body with fury saying, “You lump of flesh!” you are a loyal citizen of heaven. (11-243, 1961.10.29)
The religion that can connect with the ultimate world of heart should be one that can teach us in detail about God’s most sorrowful state. God is not just feeling happy and wonderful; on the contrary, His plight is a deeply sad one. He has been mistreated and is overflowing with bitter grief.
A religion must appear that can teach these things in detail. Only then can we become God’s filial children. (151- 102, 1962.10.28)
How grieved God was that His enemy deprived Him of His throne! You should know His history of sorrow at not being able to become the God of glory. Although He is the King of His nation and King of the universe, He has been mistreated as if He were dead. He was robbed of His ideal and His loving children and our world has fully become His enemy’s plaything. (105-199, 1979.10.21)
Because there has never been a unified people or sovereign nation that God could govern, He could never manifest His authority and dignity as the all-knowing and almighty God. We have to know clearly our obligation as the sons and daughters, children of filial piety, loyal patriots and upright men and women of the Unification Movement, to relieve God’s distress and comfort His sorrowful heart. Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will make you free”! Those who know will be liberated! I am teaching this to you clearly. (56-327, 1972.5.18)
How many tears have you shed for God? Have you ever struggled to seek out the path upon which you would suffer God’s own pain and toil on His behalf, even though your own limbs might be torn off? You have never tried. In seeking to become God’s children, you have to shed tears for the purpose of the whole. When you meet Him, your tears should gush out without ceasing as you comfort Him, saying, “Father, how great was Your sorrow upon losing me, Your son, and our first ancestors! Too many times throughout history until the present day have You suffered humiliation, pain and extreme hardship from their descendants!”
God could have judged the entire world and even Satan by His all-knowing and almighty authority. Our hearts break when we think of God crying out over the fact that even though He has toiled so long and is capable of pronouncing judgment, He still could not do so even if He wanted to. Our hearts break when we understand God’s lonely, desolate position, not surrounded by the environment that should have existed, accused by Satan, robbed of His rightful place by the satanic world…. How much have you wept in sympathy with God’s situation? It all comes down to this. (51-111, 1971.11.18)
No parents in the world would want their son or daughter to die, even if he or she were hanged for a crime. If saving the child is even remotely possible, the parental heart will seek out the way, even a hundred or a thousand times. This is especially true for mothers. If this is the heart of all parents in the fallen world, why on earth does the all-knowing and all-powerful God have to exercise judgment in the Last Days? Why can God not pardon humankind? How great is God’s love? If Jesus forgives people seventy times seven times, God has to forgive seventy times seven thousand times. That is God’s heart. (48- 235, 1971.9.19)
