Summary of Father's words:
The Land of Your Homeland is not the name of the place where you live.
Mankind entered upon the wrong path due to the fall. They must pass that critical point. If they fail to attain absolute sexual ethics they end up as rags. The Land of Your Homeland is where you first make love after you are married. The basis of this is your sexual organ. It is the source of love and the palace of love.
Do you start family life from the first day of your blessing? You have to offer devotion for forty, sixty and even eighty years. There is no end to devotion.
I built a church in Pyongyang. This church was built for North Korea. North Korea stands as the elder brother.
Is there anyone who likes Hoon Dok Hae? Anybody who does not like Hoon Dok Hae is not someone I would take with me. Even now I usually wake up at midnight or one in the morning. I'm praying for the Unification Church that will exist thousands of years from now.
If I go out of the house with money in my wallet I return empty. If I see the needy I just give it to them without counting the money.
When I look at how some of our blessed couples live, I sometimes regret thinking that I wasn't trying to give the blessing to such people.
I've lived for God's will with not time to think about my children. I never had the chance to hold their hands. Yet, when I come back late at night I prayed for them and kissed them. For God's will to be done they [True Children] must be ahead of you. The lineage does not change.
You must become the head of your tribe. Ambassadors for peace should be the heads of the towns, villages and counties. The building of God's kingdom begins from your mind and body. If you mind and body are not one God cannot protect you. If your mind gives the order your body must obey no mater what.
I was not able to convey the word to my physical mother, father, and siblings. Yet you can!
I blessed many but lost many. After receiving the blessing these families had children and settled down in their families. I ordered them to go back to their hometowns but 60% of them disappeared in a year.
When we were facing difficult times in America I had the Japanese members come 300 at a time in six occasions. Yet the Korean members, who in normal times lived like a beggar, would live like they were rich people using the money that was gathered in Japan.
[Regarding Kook-jin nim who was recently appointed on August 2nd as the vice-chairman of Segye Ilbo] Everybody is afraid of Kook Jin. Are you afraid of him or do you like him? Segye Ilbo is a place where ministers from the government visit a number of times each day. Kook Jin now understands the force of the media. He has to rebuild what you lost. The Washington Times in America knows a lot of secrets of the state. I'm planning to make Hong Kong the Asia branch of our newspapers.
There is no persecution. The Unification Church has passed the age of persecution. It is now an age where the law is absolute. Hyung Jin also came back because of the principle. He should educate people in various fields using what he learned at Harvard.
[Hoon Dok Hae ends at 8:20 a.m.]
