The Words of Kook Jin Moon from 2012
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I want to first say that in the past Damian's website Unification.net has been a great service for our movement. I want to thank Damian for his past work. However in recent years there has been a change. In particular, you may have read recent posts from Damian [Anderson] via Unification.net about Kook Jin Nim which are basically saying Kook Jin Nim is a thief and a philanderer and he is disobedient to True Mother.
I am sorry to report that from these last two articles on Kook Jin Nim, Damian is not taking care to reveal the truth, it appears that he is trying to create sensationalism to attack anything related to the True Family.
His Unification.net site has become a place for propaganda half-truths to create negativity and sensationalism which is used by those who seek to damage the work of True Parents. For those who do not know Kook Jin Nim they are shocked and dismayed these untruthful articles and it is a clear violation of Shim Jung.
I have worked with Kook Jin Nim in Saeilo Machinery for 11 years from 1995 to 2006. In 2007 I left to start my own company following my passion for human wellness. In 2009 I again began to work with him again through Il Hwa which I am doing today. So I knew him before and after the Young Jin Moon foundation was created and before and after he went to Korea to help Tongil Group.
This is a most critical time for us to unite with God, True Father, True Mother and Hyung Jin Nim. I believe Satan is desperately trying to create doubt, division and fear. We should speak truth and practice a daily life of truth and love. With this heart and mind I feel compelled to make this memo to shed the light of truth. Let s prayerfully work together centered on our True Parents as we rush toward Foundation Day.
Here are the facts about Kook Jin Moon. The Young Jin Moon Foundation is a nonprofit entity and a related party to Saeilo Enterprises. The money generated is created from investments and used to support the seminary and other church projects. Because Saeilo is a related party the board of directors are listed and they must show their salaries. These are salaries for their business work for Saeilo. Their position with the Young Jin Moon Foundation is volunteer and they receive no income.
Kook Jin Nim receives nothing from the Young Jin Moon Foundation but he helps manage the investment. The $360,000 is his salary as CEO of Saeilo Enterprises. He still runs Saeilo Enterprises and built it up from a bankrupt company to what it is today. Saeilo Enterprises is a multi-million dollar, very profitable company which Kook Jin Nim is still managing and developing. At the same time he is working his ass off in Korea for the Tongil Group as an offering without pay. At first he saved the Tongil Group which was heading toward bankruptcy and he ended the subsidies. Now the Tongil Group companies are profitable and growing. This was done in attendance to his parents and an offering to support the church. His work in Korea has created in my estimate well in excess of $100,000,000 in profit for our church with no personal income. This is all as an offering. Kook Jin Nim also played an essential role in preventing more assets to be stolen by the Kwaks and Hyun Jin.
There are many points about his separation and divorce from Soon Ju who is a most beautiful and faithful heavenly daughter and then his blessing to Ji Hye which are not reported. It does not fit the spin Damian is looking for to create the sizzle. One simple legal point to note is that the blessing is not a legal wedding, their legal wedding was held after the divorce. There are many deep internal points that God and Soon Joo, her parents Rev. Yu [Jeong Og Yu] (the OSDP lecturer) and Kook Jin Nim know but we do not.
IN MY OPINION YOU SHOULD NOT TRUST WHAT DAMIAN WRITES TODAY. His story about True Mother firing Kook Jin Nim and many other statements like saying that Kook Jin Nim accused True Mother of euthanizing True Father was also not correct. IF ANY OF YOU KNOW DAMIAN, PLEASE SPEAK WITH HIM AND SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH HIM SO THAT HE CAN AWAKEN AND STOP SENDING OUT WORDS THAT DAMAGE THE HEARTS AND CONFUSE THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW. HE IS GOING DOWN A DARK PATH.
I agree that we need to follow the truth and True Parents. Although True Parents are the Messiah they are human as was Jesus. They have freedom and will make mistakes but their heart is totally with Heavenly Father.
One point to note is that Kook Jin Nim is not interested in any position per se and certainly does not want the Church's money. He really did not want to go to Korea when he was asked to take over the Tongil Foundation. He would happily leave if someone else could do the job. He went out of loyalty to his parents and somewhat from his faith understanding of Divine Principle at that time. He grew tremendously spiritually in Korea by uniting with his younger brother Hyung and being with True Parents and struggling to carry out True Parents requests which included the lawsuits and continuous libel attacks from UCI and many other entrenched groups. Kook Jin Nim changed a lot during this time as he focused to support True Parents, Hyung Jin Nim and our church.
Kook Jin Nim has had a close relationship with his older brother Hyun Jin in the past. Among the true children Kook Jin Nim was closest to Hyun. It was heartbreaking for Kook Jin Nim when Hyun was unwilling to follow True Father's directions. He said that Hyun has had a problem with arrogance for years and True Father was trying to help him to change. This is why True Father asked Hyun to stay with him for 1 year. I saw how Hyung Jin changed from his 1.5 years with True Father and how Kook Jin Nim changed. True Father finally had the foundation directly educate his sons. This has not been a struggle between brothers. It is that Hyun did not want follow True Parents direction. Now Hyun is completely unwilling to listen to True Mother.
I believe in the principle of Vertical restoration through horizontal indemnity and I think this is being played out before our eyes. We are also going through it personally. I think we all need to stay focused on the Divine Principle and True Parents and then make every day count as we march towards Foundation Day. What we can do is to control our own hearts, minds, words and actions.
