Among those of you here today, if
you belong to the family of the Kims,
then you must fulfill the mission of the
Kim family’s messiah. If you are a Kim,
then in the family of the Kims, and if
you are a Pak, then in the Pak family;
you must believe that you are the messi-
ah representing your tribe in establish-
ing the heavenly kingdom. Think that
you are the savior. You should think
you are the savior saving the Kim fam-
ily. In order to do so, you must fulfill
your responsibilities as the chief priest
representing the entire Kim family. (155-
265, 1965.10.31)

How does Jesus differ from people
like Sakhya Muni of Buddhism, Con-
fucius of Confucianism or Mohammed
of Islam? Throughout history, Jesus is
the only person who was born on the
foundation of a purified lineage. That
is the difference. How are Sakhya Muni
and Jesus different? How is he differ-
ent from Confucius? How is he differ-
ent from Mohammed? Jesus is different
from Buddha and Mohammed in that he
was born from a purified lineage. This is
the special quality of the Messiah. That
is the difference. As the providence of
the purification of the lineage developed
within history, Israel became the start-
ing point of Christianity, centered on
Jesus. This is how he stood in the posi-
tion of the True Father. (169-194, 1987.10.31)

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Chapter 2

Truth and Universal Law

Eternal Truth

1. In the Beginning Was the Word

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

With what was the world created? In the beginning, there was God’s Will. There was God’s idea. Along with it, there was God’s plan. God’s original Will was to create humans and the human world according to His plan. Therefore, human beings… no matter how fallen, should stand within the Will and plan of God. (76:92, February 1, 1975)

Even the most advanced science cannot attain or surpass what God has made. The immense universe operates in an orderly way according to its laws. Since God created and governs the immense universe, whose comprehension is beyond the reach of human thought and science, we conclude that God is the absolute Scientist. (127:10, May 1, 1983)

Even the greatest scientist or scholar in the world today possesses only miniscule knowledge. The deeper you go, the more you will find principled actions based on eternal laws. Considering this, we see that these laws could not have come about by chance. In every case, they uphold a certain content of the origin. Their direction is aligned with, and never contradictory to, the whole purpose of the universe. This lawful universe is infinitely vast, and at the same time so subtle. Hence, no one can deny that God, who created this universe, is the King of wisdom and the King of knowledge. (127:11, May 1, 1983)

Before God created the heavens and the earth and human beings, there was a time when He functioned centering on Himself. Because we humans resemble God, we also have times when we think only about ourselves. Then God began to create all things in heaven and on earth; this means that He spread out the universe [as the environment for human beings], His object partners. In due course, He would create His object partners. All this investment by the invisible God was for the purpose of manifesting as the visible God. (69:81-82, October 20, 1973)

God created human beings as the model, expanding His creations to the four directions, East, West, South and North. (173:212, February 18, 1988)

Before creating human beings, God created the natural world by expressing partial reflections of the internal nature and external form He had conceived for human beings, who were yet to be created. Hence, a human being, as the manifest image of God, contains the sum total of the essences of all things. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Creation 3.2)

Even before the creation, the first thing that God thought of was true parents, and the family where true parents, true couple, and true children are united as one. (339:212, December 26, 2000)

What is God’s Will and Plan?

For my part, I have traveled the world
to reveal God’s ideals and His providence
in order to actualize the vision of
world peace on the basis of God’s original
plan. To this end, I have established
many international organizations. But
the path is long, and there remains a lot
of work for all of us to do. What is the
ideal of God? It goes without saying that
the original ideal of God is to realize a
peaceful world. In such a world, there
are no divisions or conflicts. It is a world
filled with unity, harmony and joy. The
greatest and quickest means to this end
is through true love. True love is the factor
of unity and the origin of joy and
happiness. That is why I would say that
the prerequisite of peace is true love.
The reason why human beings are
still unable to make true peace is because
they are ignorant of true love. Why? The
answer, as mentioned in the Bible, is that
humankind has separated from God.
Due to the Fall of the first human
ancestors, Adam and Eve established
the first family without God’s blessing.
Peace has been absent from this world
ever since. Instead, divisions, conflicts,
and struggles have come to rule this
world. In the individual, the struggle
between mind and body, the conflicts
between husband and wife at the family
level, and the struggles between societies
are accepted as normal, everyday life.
It is my conviction that all human
problems are caused by the fundamental
loss of true love. The fall of humankind
meant the loss of true love. Consequently,
Jesus came as the King of true love
in order to restore the love that Adam
and Eve had lost. By the same token, the
Lord at his Second Advent is coming in
order to restore true love. That is the logical
conclusion, seen from the view of
the providence of salvation.
My life until today, and my quest for
world peace, has been concentrated on
the point of how humankind can restore
true love. When we look at the moral
degradation of the world, we can think
of how great God’s sorrow must be.
Watching this world decline breaks my
heart and brings tears to my eyes. The
spirit of our young people is wounded
by the practice of so-called “free sex”,
which is an evil similar to the immorality
and adultery of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The greatest sorrow of God is to
see humankind going down this path of
irresponsible destruction.
