5.2 The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification
There are many hindrances to realizing the ideal of happiness and peace for humanity. For example, there are many negative elements including the contradiction of political and economic interests. The most fundamental element among them is that mind and body within human beings themselves are contradictory. Throughout the long history of humanity, there has never been a time when the conflict between mind and body was completely solved. The result of the Fall of our first human ancestors is that serious and miserable.
I held a conference for the establishment of the Family Federation for World Peace in Washington D.C. from July 30 to August 1 last.
With the participation of present and former heads of state and prime ministers from forty countries, including two former US presidents and representatives from more than 120 countries, we held a historic international convention. It will become the most precious of the organizations established upon the foundation of other worldwide organizations that I have developed throughout my lifetime for the sake of realizing a peaceful world of true love.
Now we have to answer to God and history. With what is humanity, which has to attain harmony on a massive scale and achieve oneness, going to overcome the reality and welcome the coming new millennium with hope? Also, how are people going to live in trust, and for the sake of others, beyond selfish interests and the interest of individual countries, and establish a world of peace and a new value system to maintain this? We have to find the answers humbly by opening the door of our original mind, and not submit to the temptations of a materialistic god by donning the glasses of humanism upon the brilliant castle of science and technology. If we cannot find it on earth, we have to see its solution through the sound that comes from heaven. A world of peace will never come unless we bring the Family Federation for World Peace into being. This is important. (279-208, 1996.08.20)
The family is that important. A world of peace begins with a family. If there are ten members in the family, they all have to become one. When they harmonize on the vertical and horizontal levels, front and back, left and right, and in three dimensions, an ideal world of peace will come. (232-322, 1992.07.10)
A unified federation is the only thing that will remain in the future. When that happens, everything will be completed. On that day, nations will join the federation. That is to say, nations will receive salvation. The tribal Messiah is the horizontal foundation. The vertical foundation has already been established. In that case, everything including the providence will be consummated. The satanic world will completely vanish. (219-254, 1991.09.08)
You must not forget peace, unification, the family and the world. You go as a unified body. Everything is relative. If love is connected to the center of that relative standard, the world will be connected into one. (283-52, 1997.04.08)
Religions are no longer necessary. The age of the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity (HSA-UWC) passed when I proclaimed the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification. We have to establish the original family in the garden of Eden prior to the Fall, the absolute faith and absolute realm of heart of Adam and Eve, and the unified realm of the father-son relationship that absolutely and eternally cannot be severed.
No matter how much you are enticed by something evil in the world, you have to be liberated in the place that is untouched by any impurity, the place where the original motivation, prior to Adam and Eve's Fall, can be approached. That is the task that fallen mankind has to carry out. (266-255, 1995.01.01)
From April 10th, we will use the name Family Federation for World Peace and Unification. Family problems have now expanded to the worldwide level. Family breakdown is now a major world issue. When Adam and Eve fell, God could not interfere in their family, but had to restore it in the Last Days. The ruin of the family and juvenile delinquency cannot be checked with political, economic, cultural and religious power. (283-11, 1997.04.08)
God's true love is a standard of absolute love that invests and gives infinitely, and forgets that it has done so. Connecting vertically and expanding horizontally the absolute standard of God's true love, we have to seek the ideal world that humanity has longed for.
To create an environment centered on true love, God has created the worldwide foundation centering on the True Parents, who are the embodiment of true love and true family. The founding and expansion of ICUS and PWPA which seek absolute values together with distinguished world scholars, the World Media Association, which seeks press freedom and ethical responsibility, the Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace which seeks inter-religious harmony and unity, the Federation for World Peace which seeks world peace, the Women's Federation for World Peace which seeks the realization of an ideal society through the social participation of women, the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification which is to realize the ideal of true families and expand that ideal to the entire world, and the Youth Federation for World Peace which is leading the movement for a new youth culture of the twenty-first century, were all launched from that background.
