When I tell you to go find your hometown, it means planting a new seed. Since you have become the seed of Adam and Eve, I am trying to put down a new root by planting new seeds through you. So when planting new seeds, you will need buckets of fertilizer. So you should go and receive insults. You should receive curses for the cause of goodness and endure much suffering. Try it for about three years. You won’t need three years; I see it being done in six months. When you were first sent out for witnessing, I sent you out to find 120 households and to build churches in towns other than your hometowns, right? And you haven’t been able to do it, have you? Then, I gave the direction to start Home Church, but you couldn’t fulfill that either, could you? This is it. (219-158, 1991.8.29
Richard: Here Rev. Moon emphasizes that Home Church is the actual way to build the Kingdom of Heaven (Cheon Il Guk).

Human beauty does not just reside in the face. It can be seen and felt from all directions. Beauty is three-dimen-sional, like a ball. Whether seen from above, seen from the side, or seen from any direction, a person has his or her own perfect beauty. So you should not carelessly evaluate your wife’s face. Many beautiful women are poor, but women who have virtue or good for-tune are of a different type. We often see that even in the case of a woman with a pretty face, her face becomes strange after having just two or three children. So we can conclude that those who can maintain their beauty even after child-birth are beautiful women. (God’s Will and the World – 543)
Sin cannot be removed unless someone takes responsibility to make expiation for the transgression. this is the concept of atonement. atonement is required because of God’s lawful nature, which requires that the object of his love be worthy to receive it. the predicament of the sinner is made worse by Satan’s accusation, which serve to remind God of sins he might rather overlook. therefore, some act of sacrifice is needed to pay the debt, clear away the sin, and remove the obstacle to full forgiveness and fellowship between God and human beings.
In Christianity, Jesus Christ offers himself on the cross as atonement for sin. this is the ultimate atonement: a sinless man dying to save sinners. and yet, Jesus’ atoning death on the cross is an example of a larger principle, as vicarious atonement can occur in many situations: a priest offers a sacrifice for sins of the worshippers, a good man pays with his life for the sins of the community, or a patriot sheds his blood on the altar of his nation. in each case, a righteous person’s sacrifice provides atonement for many.
1. The Principle of Atonement
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole,
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
