What is sin? Sin arises from private
standpoints. Ruin also comes about in
the private sphere. Evil is the same. When
private matters are pursued beyond a
certain degree, they manifest evil. Pri-
vate matters have certain limits; when
exceeded, sin, evil and ruin result.
Then, where is the position that can
be eternally good, eternally prosperous
and eternally fortunate? Where is the
position that can prevent sin, evil and
ruin? It is the public position. Even when
you eat, do so in a public position. When
you work, manage from a public stand-
point. When you speak, digest the situa-
tion with public words. In this way, live
connecting all aspects of your lives with
public matters. Such people cannot go to
hell even if they try. (31-163, 1970.5.24)

This is fundamental to building the
Kingdom of Heaven. The formula is the
same. The relationship between God and
God’s son is absolute; it is a bond that
no one can break. No one can sever the
father and son relationship. In a similar
way, when the husband and wife become
one in love, no one can divide their love.
Even God cannot divide it. It is eternal.
The question is whether you have
become a united couple, as a brother
and a sister like Adam and Eve, who
can attend the True Parents. Another
question is whether God’s love and the
Parents’ love can dwell in your family.
In other words, are you conveying the
love of God and Parents through your
own love such that your sons and daugh-
ters are born and nurtured in this loving
environment? This is a serious question.
You should know that if you do not do
this, the door of the family Kingdom of
Heaven will not open. (137-185, 1986.1.1)
The Religious Person’s Attitude

Numerous other prophets and sages walked the path that Moses walked. Four thousand years after the fall of Adam and Eve, the second ancestor of humanity, Jesus Christ, came. He took upon himself the responsibility for all the faults of the fallen Adam, bearing in his body the sorrow of Heaven, the sadness of all humankind, and the grief of all things in the universe. He took charge of all conditions of deathly darkness that drew lamentation and sorrow from Heaven for the sake of breaking them down. Let us think about Jesus.
What kind of person was he? Going back over the four-thousand-year history, Jesus pined for people who had not felt the fear that results from culpable acts and who had not perceived sorrow by reason of their sins. Namely, he yearned for the original Adam and Eve whom God had created, having been deeply touched by the sense and Shim Jung of goodness. Jesus had to restore and replace the original selves of Adam and Eve, who should have been the good, truthful ancestors of humanity. His belief that he had come on behalf of God’s ideology of creation was greater than any circumstances society could present to him and greater than any other tendency in his mind.
Therefore, if Jesus felt loneliness, that loneliness was connected with Heaven. When Jesus came to fathom God’s loneliness, he could no longer feel lonely. Every time hope or ideology sank deeply into his mind, he felt the responsibility to introduce that hope and ideology to humankind. Continue reading “Jesus Felt Great Sorrow”
