Section 6. The Fall: The Root of Free Sex and the Origin of Individualism

Why did God grant Adam and Eve their sexual organs during their creation? Would He have married them when they reached maturity or not? The problem lies in their Fall, which changed their lineage. This is why God drove them out of the Garden of Eden.

Originally, Adam and Eve were to have become God's body and wife respectively. The Fall, in a sense, introduced a disease into God's body and ideal, as Adam and Eve acted like His enemies. Can you imagine how miserable God's heart must have been as He watched this taking place? The Fall is the grave in which Adam and Eve buried themselves. It was an act of expropriation. In other words, the Fall became the root of free sex and the origin of individualism.

What kind of nation is America today? It is overflowing with extreme individualism, excessive pursuit of privacy and free sex. Does God favor these things? What is the intention of such extreme individualists? Aren't they saying that they would abandon heaven and earth, the world, their nation, their society and family -- and even their grandparents, parents and siblings -- and begin wandering around waywardly as gypsies and hippies? In the event that it should rain or snow they will have no place to go, and they may end their lives in suicide.

Our original mind does not desire extreme individualism or a ridiculous guarantee of privacy. Rather, it wants to live receiving love -- from the universe and the nation, from our neighborhood and village, and from our parents. Nevertheless, because people walk the opposite path, their conscience is stricken and they feel a contradiction with their original mind. Thus, more and more people would rather die than live and so they commit suicide by taking drugs. Here we witness the truth of the proverb, "You will reap what you have sown."

What seed did Adam and Eve plant in the Garden of Eden? They planted the seed of free sex, that is, the seed of unrestrained sexual relationship. Can that be denied? This is why they covered their sexual parts. Isn't it human nature that when children get caught eating some cookies hidden by their parents, they try to cover up their wrongdoing? If the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil had been a literal fruit. Adam and Eve should have covered their mouths or their hands. So, why did they cover their sexual parts instead? It cannot be denied that the Fall was caused by fornication.

Now, let us discover the dividing line between heaven and hell, is it in mid-air? Where is it? It is none other than your sexual organ. This is a serious matter. This concept has turned heaven and earth upside down. Who can deny this? This is explained in the chapter "The Fall" in the Divine Principle, the teaching of Rev. Moon. If you doubt this, ask God. You cannot reject Rev. Moon's Divine Principle, with a contents that you could not possibly have dreamed of -- all presented with logical explanations and in a well-ordered structure. Those who use their sexual organs aimlessly like a person deprived of good judgment will be bound for hell, and conversely, those who use theirs according to God's absolute standard of love will be led high up into heaven, this is a clear conclusion. (279-254, 1996.9.15)

Absolute sex has God at its center, whereas free sex is centered on oneself and Satan. Historically, world literature and the media have often stimulated free sex. Therefore, from now on, all of us -- including politicians, economists, writers and journalists -- must unite and lead the way to prevent free sex. Free sex should disappear completely. (287.29, 1997.8.10)
