You can achieve what I have achieved through my life on the worldwide stage. You need your own offering or a foot- hold, which is a smaller model of the world stage. You should know that this is Home Church. It is Gajeong Gyohae. Do you understand? (109-184, 1980.11.1)
Richard: This is not only for Unification Church members. In the speech True Parents and the Completed Testament Age Rev. Moon says “the time has come for each family to take up the messianic mission of completing the work of salvation all over the world. After restoring your family, the next step is to restore your community, tribe, and nation. We call this process “tribal messiahship.””

God is the Creator who made heaven and earth. He is the origin, the very parent of all beings in this world. He is the origin of the value of all existence. Because of Him, this phenomenal world of today came to exist. Such an absolute being does not change according to the changing of the ages. An absolute being does not change. He is not limited by time and space. He transcends all limitations and is the one who governs every limitation. Who is that being? We do not only call Him God. He is our “Father,” so we call Him “Heavenly Father.” What do you call God? He is your Father who gave birth to you. The word “rebirth” exists because of the Fall, but it was God, your Father, who originally gave birth to you. Your physical father forms a bridge between you and God. But after your physical father goes to the spirit world, you will call him your brother, not your father. In the same way, you will call your physical mother your sister. (21-249, 1968.11.24)
Scripture and Interpretation
4. Scriptures Teach Only a Finite Portion of Heaven’s Truth
And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven more seas to help it [were ink], the words of God could not be spent. Lo! God is Mighty, Wise.
All the Scriptures mean as much—no more, no less—
to the discerning spiritual man
As a water tank
in a universal flood.
Bhagavad-Gita 2.45-46 (Hinduism)
The water from the ocean contained in a pot can neither be called an ocean nor non-ocean, but it can be called only part of the ocean. Similarly, a doctrine, though arising from the Absolute Truth, is neither the Truth nor not the Truth.
Vidyanandi, Tattvarthaslokavartika 116 (Jainism)
