The Words of the Song Family
The following content was originally posted in Korean by Mr. Gwang Suk Song at 16:28 on September 16, 2012, Korea Time on an online discussion site managed by the (Korean) Tongilgyo Members' Committee for Emergency Measures. Mr. Song had been active in Korea for the Kwak Group, but was able to make a decision recently to cut his ties there and return to True Parents. The translation here is by Timothy Elder.
I am grateful to the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. Even though True Parents gave me life, raised me with their words, and gave me a precious wife and children, I have done nothing for True Parents. Nor could I have absolute faith. In the presence of True Parents, I am an unfilial and disloyal son and a sinner.
In the process of stepping down from a public position in 2009, and even until now, I put more importance in my own livelihood than I did in having absolute faith in True Parents. Rather than sacrificing myself to save a True Child, I used a True Child to find a way for me to live.
Satan came into me on the back of this fallen nature and clouded my standard of judgment, and ultimately I lost my way before both True Parents and the providence.
And yet True Parents, in the early morning of August 13, told me in a dream: "Go to the Witnessing Department". That was the day True Father offered his final prayer and was readmitted to the hospital, so I wondered for a long time what those words might mean.
It was only today that I realized their meaning. I understand now that the words mean I should first witness to myself.
I could sense that, until I completely get rid of the satanic elements that are attached to me, I cannot be ready to become a person who is appropriate for the new age that begins on the occasion of True Father's Seonghwa.
As I look back over the past four months when I was involved in the GPF movement, I was not working on the basis of a clear conviction. Instead, I was using my connection to a True Child for the sake of making a living for myself.
For the purpose of getting rid of such fallen nature, I am quitting the GPF activity and will spend time reflecting on myself. There may be difficulty in the short term, but I will accept this as a condition of indemnity to wash away my fallen nature.
In order to get rid of the fallen nature that caused me to disobey True Parents' command, I intend to establish conditions of indemnity.
On the occasion of True Father's Seonghwa Ceremony, I will firmly establish True Father in Heaven and True Mother on Earth at the center of our family and begin anew a life of absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience where every move is determined by the command of True Parents.
I am sincerely grateful to Heaven for having shown me, on the occasion of True Father's Seonghwa, the path to beg forgiveness with tears of contrition for my disloyalty to True Parents and to get rid of the conditions of satanic accusation that have tormented me for so long.
8.1 in the 3rd year of Cheon-gi (September 16)
