Forward by Samuel Marzioli

By request of a member of the Unification Church, I was asked to examine the words of Moon, and the statements of the Unification church, and decide if they were the Truth or not. After reading for hours, the documents made available through the Internet, I have compiled Unification thoughts, and written my comments about them based upon the scripture. I have quoted a lot of scripture, with very few of my own comments, for I feel that the Bible itself can answer these questions. So here are my comments on the Unification church through the eyes of the Bible. I hope you read all of the verses, because they add to the effect of the whole article. The sentences with the underlines are the statements taken from the Unification Church. Enjoy!

What is the first sin, and why does it affect people throughout the ages?

MAN AND SIN (A) After Adam and Eve sinned, they suddenly covered the sexual parts of their bodies in shame (Gen. 3:7). Why did they cover their sexual parts? If Adam and Eve had sinned with their mouths by eating a literal fruit, they would have covered their mouths in shame. The Bible, in Job 31:33, says: "I have concealed my transgressions like Adam by hiding my iniquity in my bosom." These verses indicate that the sin of Adam and Eve -- eating the fruit -- was committed with their sexual parts. This means that it involved a sexual act. Who participated in this sexual act? A serpent spoke to Eve and tricked her. Was the serpent a real snake or is it a symbol of something else? Having intelligence and the ability to communicate with humans, it must have been a spiritual creature, not an animal. It is traditionally understood that the serpent was the archangel Lucifer, who fell from heaven and became Satan (Jude 6-7; Isaiah. 14:12). Reverend Moon elucidated that the original sin was first, an unprincipled act of love between Lucifer and Eve, and second, a premature act of love between Eve and Adam.

Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them; and God said to them, "be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth..."

Before the fall, man and woman knew of sex and were commanded to "be fruitful and multiply". Moon says that they covered their nakedness because of pre-mature sex, yet in no way does it show that in context of the idea of "The Tree of Good and Evil". The Unification Church postulates that it was sex, and not a fruit at all, that God commanded them not to do. If the tree symbolizes sex then could God have "forbade" it? God explicitly TOLD them that they should multiply (see Genesis 1:28 for more detail). Could it really be sex that was "the tree of Good and evil"? Some speculate that the fruitful part of "be fruitful and multiply" meant that they had to grow spiritually before they reproduced. Now as a human being, how exactly would they know if they were "ready" to multiply? At what point does someone know when the level of "fruitful" is achieved. Would God say "okay that's enough fruitful... Now multiply"? Were they expected to know when that level was? Are you saying that God gave an ambiguous message or blessing without anyone but Him knowing when that level was supposed to be achieved? Let us list the original blessing completely:

Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

The context of the verse has nothing to do with spirituality. He is clearly talking about reproducing. Grow spiritually and multiply and take over the whole earth? When we look at the term "fruitful" or "fruits" we must look at the context on which it is being applied. The term does not only mean "spiritual" all the time, but depending on the context of the verse, that is the way you would find out the true meaning. Anything that spreads beyond an original source can be called fruitful, and that can include works, spirituality, children, etc.

So that doesn't answer the first question. What sin did Adam and Eve commit? There was only one commandment given to Adam and Eve. They were not to eat of the tree of good and evil. There was no commandment about not having sex, but exactly the opposite (Genesis 1:28). So what sin did they commit? Moon postulates that Eve not only had sex, but with Lucifer. It seems, without this speculation of sex, that they had gone against the ONLY commandment God HAD given them when they ate of the tree. So why did they fall from fellowship with God? They did what humans always do... They disobeyed God's will. This postulation of sex could be deemed ludicrous in light of the following verse. Before reading it keep in mind that according to Moon, the tree is symbolism of sex.

Genesis 2:9 "... And out of the ground the Lord God cause to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and goof for food; the tree of life also in the in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.".

"and good for food"... That is what the bible said about these trees. Not good for pleasure, but for food. Could it possibly be that the simple action of eating of the tree, and learning of evil, could have opened their eyes to the embarrassing nature of nudity? Covering themselves would be the only course of action if they were embarrassed or afraid as Adam said (Genesis 3:10). Without postulating this un-contextual theory about "Sex with Satan", you can see why mankind fell from fellowship. The fall of mankind was when Eve, in the desire for this apple and all things that went with it, DISOBEYED God, with Adam following her lead. So is this deemed worthy of eternal death? The outcome of sin is death, and the only way for them to commit sin, was for them to know what sin was. If they did not know evil, then they could not do evil, like a child growing up, harmless, and without sin. Yet when he/she is able to decide between good and evil (a distinction that wasn't known to Adam and Eve before eating the fruit), that is the time they fall into sin. Before we were introduced to sin, we had perfect communication with God, and we were in fellowship with Him. God's nature is perfect Goodness, and at the time we were good as well. Evil entered into our lives, and broke that bond, for God cannot dwell with evil. Instead of listening to the words of God, they chose to disobey God, and at the same time follow Satan's will. So what punishment was given to Satan for rebelling against God directly? He gave Satan eternal punishment. Lucifer chose to follow His own way, and rebel against His master, and in turn that is what Adam and Eve did.

Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

Genesis 3:7 "Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings"

They made coverings for their nudity. That is what is said after their eyes were opened. Why did they cover their nudity? Why was it such an ordeal for them?

Genesis 3:10 "I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid".

In Genesis 3:11 God tells Adam "Who told you that you were naked? He asked " Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?" God had drawn the conclusion that Adam was eating of the tree. What did the tree's properties hold? It held the knowledge of good and evil.

Why did sin enter into their lives? Before they ate the apple they did not know good from evil, and could not sin. So when their eyes were opened to both, what happened? They knew what evil was... They had given Satan a foot hold of temptation into their minds with the introduction of evil into their lives. Once again what embodies the whole fall of mankind? They choice to reject God. They chose to serve themselves when they disobeyed His commandment, His ONLY commandment at that time.

The truth about Christ's mission on earth, and His complete success?

MOONS IDEA ABOUT CHRIST'S MISSION (B) We, therefore, must realize that Jesus did not come to die on the cross.

MOONS IDEA ABOUT CHRIST'S MISSION (B): If Jesus had not been crucified, what would have happened? He would have accomplished the providence of salvation both spiritually and physically. He would have established the Kingdom of Heaven on earth which would last forever, as expressed in the prophecy of Isaiah (Is. 9:6-7), in the instruction of the angel appearing to Mary (Luke 1:31-33), and in Jesus' own words announcing the imminence of the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 4:17).

MOONS IDEA ABOUT CHRIST'S MISSION (B) When it became clear that the people would not accept him as the Messiah, Jesus knew there was no other way left to bring salvation than by sacrificing his life on the cross.

I think that Moon has misunderstood Jesus Christ's mission on Earth. He did not come to bring a physical kingdom on earth at all, but a spiritual kingdom. His mission was not a failure, but a complete success. Moon says that Jesus Christ failed His mission to bring the kingdom of God to earth

Luke 12:49 "I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled"

Verse 51-53 "Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; For from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son, and son against father; mother against daughter, and daughter against mother; mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law"

Jesus' mission was to first and foremost win us our place in heaven, and to establish with us a fellowship with God. His plan was to die for our sins, and save us the judgment that came with our sin. With that accomplished we could then be in fellowship with God, for sin was not our bondage anymore. Moon speculates that His death was a secondary action, and not His first intent. If we look back at the prophets of the Old testament, we will see that the God knew quite well what was going to happen to Jesus.

PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:3 "He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their faces, he was despised, and we did not esteem Him"

FULFILLED in: John 1:11 "He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him." and Luke 23:18 "But they cried out all together, saying, "Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!"

PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:1 "Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

FULFILLED in: John 12:37-38 "But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him; that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke "Lord Who has believe in our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been reveled?"

PROPHECY: Zech 11:12 "And I said to them, "if it is good in your sight, give me my wages; but if not, never mind!" So they weighed out thirty shekels of silver as my wages.

FULFILLED in: Matthew 26:15 "And said, "what are you willing to give me to deliver Him up to you? And they weighed out to him thirty pieces of silver.

PROPHECY: Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to those who strike me, and my cheeks to those who pluck out the beard; I did not cover My face from Humiliation and spitting

FULFILLED in: Matthew 26:67 "Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him" The most crucial verse is this next ones. It was the ones that Jesus was to die to save our lives, our souls, and win us a place in the Kingdom of heaven

PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:5 "but he was pierced through for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed

FULFILLED: Mark 15:27 "And they crucified two robbers, with Him, one on His right and one on His left, And the scripture was fulfilled which says, "and he was numbered with transgressors"

PROPHECY: Zech 12:10 "And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like the bitter weeping over a first-born"

FULFILLED in: John 20:27 "Then He said to Thomas "Reach here your fingers and see my hands; and reach here your hands, and put into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing"

And John 19:34 "But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water."

These are all crucial prophecies. IF they had not been correct then it would have been a lie. If Jesus was not crucified, pierced, spat at, and beaten then the prophecies would have been incorrect. Moon says that Jesus' mission was to bring a physical kingdom of God to earth, and that if He didn't, it was because the Jews did not accept Him. The Old Testament says that He was going to be "pierced through for our transgressions" (Isaiah 53:5) and that was the reason for His coming. If Jesus had come to earth, and on a secondary plan, He decided to die for our sins, would that be that big of a deal? On the other hand, Jesus came to earth knowing FULL well (according to OT prophecies) that He was going to die for His loved ones, His creation. It wasn't something that had not occurred to him later, but something that He wanted to do and knew He had to do it. Going forward to the New Testament, we see Jesus knew full well of His mission too. No where was it said that this mission of His was a surprise to Him.

Matthew 20:28 "Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many"

John 3:17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him."

1 Tim 1: 15 "It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners..."

Jesus was alone on this world in His last days on earth. He was subject to all the feelings that lay inside every man. When we look at this next verse, we must imagine the loneliness, and seclusion that comes from being the only one able to save human kind. We must imagine the fear of this tribulation that Jesus was going against on His own. Jesus knew full well that He would be separated from the trinity when He took on all the sins of the world. Jesus' ultimate act of Love was to die for us. That is the truth about God, and that is the most special aspect of God.

Luke 22:42 "saying, "Father, if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Thine be done"

and His diciples whom were keeping Him company?

Luke 22:46 "Why are you sleeping?"

No one was there for Jesus when He needed it the most... Not even His own friends. Yet we see courage from Jesus as it gets closer to the time of His pain.

John 18:11 "Jesus therefore said to Peter... the cup which the Father has given to Me, shall I not drink it?"

Later on..

Mark 15:34 "and at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABCHTHANI?" which is translated, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"

It was this time of Jesus' separation from God. Imagine knowing God your whole life, and then suddenly and drastically knowing, and feeling like, you were completely alone. Yet courage was in His heart to the last!

Luke 23:46 "and Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, "Father into Thy hands I commit My spirit."

If Jesus had come not to die for our sins, and instead He meant to bring the kingdom of God to earth, then His sacrifice was really a sign of His failure. If the Old Testament was correct, and Jesus truly DID come to die for our sins, then truly His sacrifice was greater than any other action in the history of the world. For He would have come knowing that He was to be tormented, and killed, but His love conquered His loneliness, and fears! The Bible bears witness that Jesus was not coming at first to bring a physical Kingdom to earth, but salvation from sins. God knew in the Old Testament, and the New Testament what He was doing. The act of self sacrifice was not a mistake, or an accident, or a "plan B". It was the first and foremost on God's mind. To say anything less would be to call the words of the Bible a lie.

John 18:36 "Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting, that I might not be delivered up to the Jews; but as it is, my kingdom is not of this realm."

Jesus' kingdom was not a physical one, it is in the Body of His servants.

Luke 17:21 "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo there! for, behold the kingdom of God is within you"

The Kingdom of God fulfilled

MOONS IDEA ABOUT KINGDOM OF GOD (C): What does the reality of the life in faith of the Christian teach us? It tells us straightforwardly that redemption through the cross cannot completely liquidate our original sin, and that it leaves man's original nature not yet perfectly restored. Jesus promised the Lord would come, because Jesus knew he could not fulfill the purpose of his advent as the Messiah through redemption by the cross. Christ had to come again to fulfill perfectly the will of God, because God's predestination to restore the Kingdom of Heaven on earth was absolute and unchangeable.

MOONS IDEA ABOUT GODS KINGDOM (C). In these and other ways, God set the stage for the establishment of His kingdom on earth, about which Jesus so often spoken. Beginning with Israel, God's kingdom could have spread throughout the world. Jesus could have established a world of true love. The three blessings promised in the Garden of Eden would have been realized. God's purpose has never changed.

What was God's true plan for His people? Did God address this dilemma put forth by Moon? When IS the coming of the physical kingdom of God? Furthermore, how does one know if it is truly Jesus? How do we all know if a man comes claiming to be the messiah, that he is not an impostor? Is it possible for an impostor to fool us? Jesus knew that we would be taken in by false Prophets, Christ's, and teachers. He gave us exactly what we were to look for in His return. If the "christ" does not follow these guidelines then it is not Jesus Christ.

Matthew 25 "But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it's light, and the stars w ill fall from the sky, and the power of heaven will be shaken, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds from one end of the sky to the other"

Mark 13:24-27 "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it's light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory"

Luke 21:25-27 "And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and expectation of things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."

Matthew 13:41-43 "The son of man will send forth his angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. he who has ears, let him hear."

Many Unification member say to us "Obviously it will not be a physical 'coming down from the clouds', but a spiritual one". According to this next verse, the angels of the Lord not only put those passages in perspective, but defined what Jesus meant by them.

Acts 1:9-11 "...He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them; And they also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking unto the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven."

While they were looking up in the sky, seeing Jesus being taken away by a cloud... The angels said "Why do you stand looking into the sky?" It is not a spiritual sky, it is the real sky. As the apostles were looking into the physical sky the angels told them "Jesus... will come in just the SAME WAY as you have watched Him go into heaven" They were quite clear on that.

Who will come and fool the would-be-followers of Yahweh? These verses are spread throughout the whole Gospel.... It makes you wonder what for. Jesus must have thought ahead and realized that there was going to be false witnesses of God. Therefore He wanted to warn us of these men and women so that we would not be fooled. Here are most all of the examples of these warnings.

1 John 4:1 "Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world"

Matthew 24:4-5 "And Jesus answered and said to them, "see to it that no one misleads you, for many will come in My name, saying 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many"

Matthew 24:11 "And many false prophets will arise and will mislead many."

Matthew 24:23-27 "Then if anyone says to you, 'behold here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him. For many false Christ's and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold I have told you in advance. If therefore they say to you, 'behold He is in the wilderness,' do not go forth, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them. For just as the lightning comes from east, and flashes even to west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be."

Matthew 7:15-17 "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit."

This next one is my favorite verse concerning false prophets.

2 Peter 2:1 "But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves, and many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned"

It's important that we realize that there will be false men of God. The hard part is not telling if they are from God or not, it's accepting that they are not from God that is the problem. If you compare and contrast the Bible with the writings from these "teachers, christ's, prophets" you can spot their contradictions. If it does not match up with the bibles revelations on a subject, then it is a contradictory word. If it contradicts the word of God, it is a lie. So what is the return of Jesus Christ? Is it going to be a mystery? are we going to have to go out into the wilderness and find Christ? No! From the bible's writings we know that Christ's return is not going to be silent. Not only is it not going to be silent, it's going to be unexpected, and sudden. If Moon is here proclaiming he is the Messiah come again, then it would hardly be sudden, and unexpected. There are many verses in the bible that bear witness to this fact.

Mark 13:35-37 "Therefore be on the alert-for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, at cockcrowing, or in the morning-lest he come suddenly and find you asleep " and what I say to you I say to all, 'be on alert!'."

This is another of my favorite verses.. Short and to the point.... "BE ON ALERT!!!!!". When Christ returns, will He find faith from the people on earth? Or will they have fallen to false christ's...

The Deity of Jesus Christ

MOONS IDEA ABOUT CHRIST (D): Because the Jewish people disbelieved Jesus and delivered him up for crucifixion, his body was invaded by Satan, and he was killed. Therefore, even when Christians believe in and become one body with Jesus, whose body was invaded by Satan, their bodies still remain subject to Satan's invasion.

MOONS MISCONCEPTION OF CHRIST (D): Jesus could not accomplish the purpose of the providence of physical salvation because his body was invaded by Satan. However, he could establish the basis for spiritual salvation by forming a triumphant foundation for resurrection through the redemption by the blood of the cross. Therefore, all the saints since the resurrection of Jesus through the present day have enjoyed the benefit of the providence of spiritual salvation only. Salvation through redemption by the cross is spiritual only. Even in devout men of faith, the original sin remains in the flesh and is transmitted continuously from generation to generation. The more devout a saint becomes in his faith, therefore, the more severe becomes his fight against sin. Thus, Christ must come again on the earth to accomplish the purpose of the providence of the physical, as well as the spiritual salvation, by redeeming the original sin which has not been liquidated even through the cross.

Who is this "Son of God" Jesus? Is He the son of God? Is he God? Is he just another Messiah? WHO! If His body was entered by Satan, could He have been God? If He had committed a sin, would He have been the "perfect Lamb without blemish?". How could this person Jesus save us from eternal death, if His body was entered by Satan, and God's plan failed? I'll tell you how... Satan did not enter His body, and He WAS the perfect Lamb of God! Check these verses out.

Luke 22:69-70 "But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God." And they all said, "are you the son of God, then? And he said to them "Yes I am."

John 10:30 "I and the Father are on."

John 10:37-38 "If I do not do the works of the My father, do not believe Me; But if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father."

John 12:45 "And he who beholds Me beholds the One who sent Me."

John 14:7-10 "If you had known me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him. "Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father and it is enough for us." Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me Philip? he who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, 'show us the Father'? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His words."

John 1:1-3 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. he was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being."

John 1:14 "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth."

What does all of this tell us? Is Jesus ONLY the title of "Son of God"? It seems that everyone who knew Him, knew Him to be more than just a man. According to the passages I've shown you, not only was He more than a man, He was God Himself! Not just God's instrument, not just God's voice, but God on earth. Here's some more verses to look over.

Collosians 2:9 "For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form"

1 Timothy 3:16 "And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness; He who was reveled in flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, beheld by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory"

Hebrews 1:3 "And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of Hi s nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;"

John 8:58 "Jesus said to them "truly, truly I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am."

Who is Jesus then? He is none other than God. Many people get confused with all the titles and names that Jesus had, but you can see quite clearly from the passages I've shown, that He is God. What does all this mean? Moon has spoken and said that Jesus was less than perfect. He said that He was entered by Satan. If Satan had won over God, then who is the master now? Moon has only speculated on this matter, without knowing fully who Christ was. How else could God be won over except in the mind of a man? Jesus was sinless and perfect. That is a statement that many Christians, and apostles, and writers in the Bible have proclaimed. How do we know? read these:

Perfect:

Hebrews 9:13-14 "How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"

Hebrews 5:9 "And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him."

John 19:4 "Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him"

These are just the verses that bear direct witness of His perfection. There are other verses which hint to it, but we only fully understand the meaning if we understand who the Father is. Read the passages above about the deity of Jesus.

Sinless:

John 8:46 "which of you convinceth me of sin? and if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

2 Corinthians 5:21 "For he hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."

Hebrew 4:15 " For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."

1 Peter 1:19 " But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot;"

1 Peter 2:22 "Who did not sin, neither was guile found in his mouth"

These too are the verses that directly announce His perfection. So If Christ was without sin, and if he was "tempted like as we are, yet without sin" then how could "Satan enter His body"? The reason this statement was made is because Moon neither knew Christ, nor His mission on earth. If you understand God, and understand the Bible, you could see that nothing has gone wrong with His plan. Salvation was set from the beginning of the Universe. Yet was it a mistake when Jesus came and gave it? Was it set earlier on? The prophecies of Jesus, and the plan of salvation was set at the beginning of time as we know it...

Genesis (God to Satan) 3:15 "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel"

Christ came, and destroyed Satan's hold over all of creation... Christ showed His power over death by resurrecting Himself. That verse was the beginning of the Messianic prophecies, and that was set at the beginning of time, only fulfilled through Christ Jesus. Christ destroyed Satan hold on us, but in return, Christ suffered little with the blow to the heel ( the Crucifixion). His plan has been established and fulfilled just as He has told us throughout the century through those that chose to serve Him.

Concluding Statements

Moon once said that He was visited by Christ, and that Christ told him to finish the work he had not done. If this was truly Christ, then could God have forgotten the things that God planned, and carried out to perfection? Christ is God, and the plan was finished. What has Moon done to add to this message? He denies Christ as He truly is, and says that God failed. Now he says it is up to him (Moon) to finish the work that God Himself could not do. I was asked by a man "see if moon is not the truth". After careful study of the words of Moon and his church, I find them all guilty of denying Christ as He said He was. They go and teach a false gospel, and destroy everything good that was done through Christ Jesus, our God. I sincerely hope that one day you can all know Christ for who He truly was. Moon is not the second coming, for Moon does not even know who God is. How do we know a false Christ?

1 John 4:1 "Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world"

Who is from God, but those who know the truth about God.
