- Tim LaHaye
- Tim LaHaye's relationship with Moon goes back at least
17 years. In 1985 as was reported earlier, LaHaye was addressing several
hundred evangelical Christians, the flock he claims to guard and feed,
and did he exhort that they draw closer to his God? No, unless his god
is the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He exhorted that they go willingly to jail
with the Rev. Moon in demonstration to his imprisonment over tax fraud.
(The spin on the story has been that LaHaye and others were supporting
Rev. Moon's "religious freedom")
- While in prison, Moon continued to spout
out to the world that he is the anointed messiah, and also at that time,
he pronounced a day when he claims he opened heaven. LaHaye visited him
and apologized for the actions of the U.S. Government which imprisoned
him. Also visiting Moon in prison was the president of one of the groups
chaired by LaHaye This was the AFC (American Freedom Coalition) president,
Don Sills.(Truth is my Sword' Vol 2, by Bo Hi Pak, 'The Watchman Expositor')
- LaHaye is also the founder of the ACTV (American Coalition
for Traditional Values). Bo Hi Pak, Moons #1 man, formerly Korean CIA and
the operative that was liaison to American CIA, gave a very sizable donation
to help steady the new organization, after which, LaHaye agreed to sit
as a member of the board of directors for the Rev. Moon sponsored "Christian
Voice" group.(Americans United For Separation of Church and State/Feb
- The highly influential "Left Behind" author
was also associated in a group called the Council for Religious Freedom,
but when it was made public that this was another Moon front, LaHaye apparently
resigned from the group, though his name was not at the time stricken from
their membership roster. Though LaHaye resigned, others after him signed
on, continuing to bolster its credibility. These include Paul Crouch of
the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
- Among the other bizarre goings on within the Moon/Conservative
alliance, a young, black Zimbabwean claiming that he is the reincarnation
of Moons dead son has also spoken at functions of the American Freedom
Coalition. (CRI Journal-CRJ0092A). Moon himself has revealed that this
claim of reincarnation is true.
- The LaHayes were also involved in a meeting sponsored
by Moon in 1996, through the Family Federation for World Peace as well
as the Women's Federation for World Peace (two Moon sponsored organizations),
a 3 day seminar in Washington D.C., from July 31-August 2, along with several
other highly visible evangelicals. Beverly LaHaye received between $80-150,000
for speaking at the event. (2)
- In 1999, Tim LaHaye and co-author Jerry
Jenkins wrote (3)
that the Catholic church was very likely the Great Harlot sitting on the
beast in Revelation 17 and 18, their reason being that they believe the
Catholic church may attempt to unify the worlds religions, though they
wrote differently in their "Left Behind" book series. LaHaye
and his family are involved directly with groups sponsored by and in some
cases founded upon money from a false messiah whose objective is publicly
stated, and loudly at that, for the unification of world religions. So
where exactly does LaHaye stand if in doctrine he warns of unification
brought about by Rome, and yet associates with the Unification Church?
- Rev. Moon states in his address, 'Life on Earth and in
the Spirit World' :
- "This is why God created so many different religions:
to be training grounds to make a path for every people, culture, custom,
and tradition. Religions polish people to be qualified to enter the region
of the original homeland. Because of humankind's many different cultural
backgrounds, God sought and set the standard of comparison and has been
leading the way toward one unified religious world." (4)
This is rather peculiar in light of the apparent diversity of world religions
in doctrine, practice and teachings, each with their own sense of exclusivity
of one another, sometimes to the very inspiration of holy war.
- According to 'Group Watch,' a cult watchdog organization,
Don Sills is another evangelical leader who stated that he would recruit
members from a group directly associated with Rev. Moon, CAUSA, to become
members of his AFC (American Freedom Coalition) organization. In March
of 1988, Sills appeared on Trinity Broadcasting Networks flagship program
"Praise the Lord" warning people away from listening to 'cult
watch groups', being concerned for the division and fear they may bring.
Of course these anti-cult groups tell us that since Moon claims Jesus will
worship at Moons feet, and inflicts mind control techniques over his followers,
his religion is a cult that should by all means be avoided and certainly
watched. Paul Crouch is another who seems to shy away from the overall
doctrine espoused on his "Christian" television network, and
appears to work for religious unification.
- The Tangled Web Revealed...
- The Council for National Policy
- We touched on this council in Part
1, but now we shall take a closer look at it and its members. This
group was founded by Tim LaHaye in 1981. Again we have shown definite ties
between this "Christian" organization and the Rev. Moons openly
anti-Christ organizations. This will be addressed later more fully, but
this group is also associated heavily with the controversial and cultic
Church of Scientology, the John Birch Society (known for its espionage
work), and the intelligence community. (Note: we attempted to get JBS board
member lists but the Society returned a response that it was their policy
not to reveal names of its board members).
- It was stated by Congressman Woody Jenkins (Newsweek,1981)
"I predict that one day before the end of this century the Council
[for National Policy] will be so influential that no President, regardless
of party or philosophy, will be able to ignore us or our concerns or shut
us out of the highest levels of government." In October, 1999 George
W. Bush addressed the CNP. His campaign refused to release the full text
of his remarks. Why the secrecy??
- Beverly LaHaye, as was previously noted, is the wife
of Tim LaHaye. She also was and still may be part of the CNP, and also
founder of Concerned Women for America. She joined forces with Citizens
Council on Human Rights, a group affiliated with Scientology, and Gary
Bauer's Family Research Council, which has benefited as well from Rev.
Moon organizations and money. This all under the umbrella of social change
and "Christian family values" in America. Mrs. LaHaye and Bauer
appeared and spoke together in a 1995 rally against psychiatric practices
on children. The question is, regardless of a good cause, is it necessary
for these evangelical leaders to join forces with Moon, Scientology and
the Intelligence community? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize
that many groups use charitable giving/participation, patriotic associations
and demonstrations of community or national good will to obfuscate their
true objectives and agenda, or to conceal and deflect attention from their
- LaHayes group, the Council for National Policy, is just
one example of evangelical organizations being filled with Intelligence
officers, Moon representatives and Scientology members. To name all the
members who were and are involved in the intelligence community and cults
would take too long here, but here are just a few; (5)
- * Howard Ahmanson Jr. (CNP Board of Governors) Contributed
to the Council of Foreign Relations according to their 1990-1993 reports
- * Thomas R. Anderson (CNP Board of Governors) Also sits
on the board of the Moon front Family Research Council.
- * Rep John Ashbrook (CNP Board of Governors) Also a member
of Moons front group "Christian Voice".
- * Richard Bott (CNP Board of Governors) Former writer
for the Moon owned Washington times.
- * Jeffrey Coors (CNP Board of Governors) Coors brewing
- * Joseph Coors (CNP Board of Governors) President Adolph
- * Arnaul D'Borchgrave (CNP Member) Editor in chief of

- * George Gilder (CNP Board of Governors) Program director
for Rockerfeller funded Manhattan Institute, friend of David Rockerfeller,
and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations(CFR).
- * Ron Godwin (CNP Member) Former Vice President of Falwells
Moral Majority, Sr Vice President of the Moon owned Washington times
- * Allan Gottleib (CNP Member) Board Member of Moons front
group, the American Freedom Coalition. In 1983 the Moon group CAUSA, founded
by Bo Hi Pak, former Korean CIA and liaison to the American CIA, and Moons
right hand man, granted Gottleib an all expense paid trip to Jamaica for
a CAUSA conference
- * J. Peter Grace (CNP Member) Council of Foreign Relations,
Knights of Malta, and worked with the CIA to remove classified info concerning
former Nazi scientists so that they could immigrate into the U.S., supposedly
so they could carry on their work (including mind control projects) here
in the good ole U.S.of A.
- * Lt. General Daniel Graham (CNP Board of Governors)
Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Deputy Director CIA, Military
advisor to President Reagan, publicly endorses the Moon owned Washington
Times. Also a member of the Moon org, World Anti-Communist League, and
board of Directors for Moons CAUSA. Member of the American Freedom Coalition.
Vice Chairman for the U.S. Council for World Freedom, which also is closely
related to Moons CAUSA. Member too of the Council of 56, Religious Roundtable.
- * Robert Grant (CNP Directory) Founder of "Christian
Voice", and the American Freedom Coalition, both are Moon sponsored
orgs. Graduate of the fuller Theological Seminary, and member of the Religious
Roundtable. Bo Hi Pak has praised the union between these Christian organizations
and Moonie orgs saying "...it shows what a great since of humor God
has." Grants "Christian Voice" claims to be the nations
largest Christian lobby, and according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, merged
with Moon in 1987.
- * Sen. Jesse helms (CNP Board of Governors) also of the
Religious Roundtable, endorser of the Moon owned Washington times, and
a member of the Council for Foreign Relations(CFR).
- * Max Hugel (CNP Member) Former special assistant CIA
Deputy Director for Administration, and Deputy Director for Operations
- * Jack Kemp (CNP Member) Co Director of Empower American,
whose board is dominated by the Council of Foreign Relations(CFR).
- * Alan Keyes (CNP Member) Former Ambassador to the United
Nations. He was also part of Reagans National Security Team which was dominated
by high level Council of Foreign Relations men(CFR).
- * Edwin Meese (CNP Executive Committee, CNP President)
Former Attorney General, former Chief of Staff
- Notice that many mentioned, (as well as many not mentioned)
are members of the CFR (Council for Foreign Relations). This is a group
espousing the New World Order and have actively and openly worked toward
it for decades. Not surprisingly, the man who popularized the phrase "New
World Order," George Bush Sr, was also at one time head of the CFR.
- A reminder that some of the evangelical members of the
CNP have included:
- Beverly and Lee LaHaye, also associated with Moons CWA
group. Gary Bauer, Bill Bright, James Dobson (Focus On The Family), Bob
Dugan, Ron Godwin, Robert Grant, Rebecca Hagelin, Bob Jones the 3rd (Bob
Jones University), Alan Keyes (Outspoken ultra-conservative black talk
show host and author), Dr. D. James Kennedy (noted television evangelist
and Pastor), Peter Marshall, Sam Moore of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Pat
Robertson (founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and former Presidential
aspirant), Rev. Duane Motley, Ralph Reed, Oliver North (formerly with the
National Security Council), Phyllis Schlafly (ultra-right columnist and
pundit), Rev. Jim Woodall, John Ankerberg (internationally recognized Christian
television personality), Rev. E.V. Hill, James Robison, Pat Boone, Larry
Burkett, Reed Larson, and many others.(5)
- So now we must ask ourselves why are these people associated
together under the front of "Christian" organizations? Is it
merely coincidence? To assume such is to be remarkably naive and woefully
remiss in learning the lessons of past history. By comparing the members
of the CNP and cross referencing them with any large Christian or Moon
organization, and many of the politically right-wing PAC (Political Action
Committee) organizations, you will find essentially that these organizations
are made up of the same people.
- Is this a ruse, to draw evangelical believers and right
wing patriots into the NWO? It certainly seems to be. Moon states his goal
is to unify the worlds religions thereby unifying the world. Bo Hi Pak
states; "We want to awaken the world. We want to turn the tide [so]
that this totalitarian, godless system must go....It is a total war. Basically
a war of ideas." (6)
- These organizations work together tightly, and nearly
every major evangelical name that can be named is involved with these apostate
organizations, fleecing their sheep in order to help fund these groups;
A large number of these "great men of God" can be found living
in palatial homes, driving exorbitantly expensive automobiles and owning
personal jets and relishing accolades as great teachers of the faith. These
men seem more like the Pharisees of Jesus' day, who denied Him as well,
yet 40 years later came to their destruction following a false messiah.
They speak at each others functions, support one another monetarily, and
cause many to believe that they do it in the name of God and in harmony
with God's will (many claiming direct divine revelation, inspiration and
in some cases unquestionable supernatural authority). The Bible they themselves
espouse refers to them as hirelings.

Notes: At the leadership levels
in both the national office and state chapters, the American Freedom Coalition
is closely tied to the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. The Washington
Post (March 30, 1988) has even described the AFC as a "Moon sponsored
lobbying group. "(34) The links between the two entities are so extensive
that they will be discussed here in the Background section as well as in
Private Connections. - from "Group Watch" on the CNP

- Tim LaHaye and other Christians are helping the Unification
Church battle the perceived threat of government intrusion.
- By Beth Spring | posted 8/8/01
- (This article originally appeared in the September 7,
1984, issue of Christianity Today.)
- Full acceptance into the mainstream of American religious
life is a cherished goal of Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. Ironically,
Moon's recent imprisonment for tax evasion appears to be bringing that
dream a step closer to reality.
- "Religious freedom" rallies around the country
are drawing thousands of unsuspecting Christians into emotionally charged
meetings that portray Moon as a persecuted man of God. No ties with the
Unification Church are mentioned in promotional mailings. The sponsors
are identified as a coalition of Christian leaders including author Tim
LaHaye; Robert Grant, of Christian Voice; and Joseph Lowery, of the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference. Greg Dixon and Everett Sileven, leaders
of a coalition of independent, fundamentalist churches, are involved as
- The sponsors view Moon as a persecuted ally in an escalating
battle against secular humanism and government intrusion into church ministries.
"One person's religious freedom equates to everyone's religious freedom,"
LaHaye says. "If one person's freedom is robbed, then potentially
anyone's religious freedom can be robbed." Whether Moon is a victim
of persecution or a felon is a matter of considerable debate. There is
little doubt, however, that the entire affair is a public relations bonanza
for his church.
- Darrel Malcom, senior pastor of Webber Street Church
of Christ in Urbana, Illinois, accepted an offer for an expense-paid trip
to Washington, D.C., to attend the massive "Pageant for Religious
Freedom" on July 25. He learned of the event from two Unification
Church members in Urbana. Their involvement gave him pause, but he says
he accepted their invitation because he respects LaHaye. LaHaye is cochairman
of the Coalition on Religious Freedom, the group that sponsored the event.
Malcom says he enjoyed the lavish production, but returned home feeling
"a little bit used."
- "I felt there was a hidden agenda of trying to buy
legitimacy [for Moon] within the Christian community. I'm not ready to
- When Malcom returned home, Unification Church members
asked him to consider sponsoring a local rally in support of Moon. "They
wanted to meet and discuss getting Christians together," he says.
"I said I do not consider their group Christian."
- A narrator introduced actors portraying heroes of American
religious history. At the end, a melodramatic enactment of Moon's trial
and sentencing drew a chorus of boos and hisses for his prosecutor and
sustained cheers for Moon.
- Following the performance, LaHaye spoke to the audience.
"If we have the same percentage of religious freedom attacks in the
next 15 years as we have had in the past 15 years, we'll no longer have
religious freedom in America," he said. LaHaye did not mention Moon
- The evening's dramatic climax came when Moon's daughter,
In Jin Moon, choked back tears as she spoke of her father. "I have
almost never seen my father sleep. He is always up working and praying.
I have never seen anyone so dedicated to America's dream and to God."
She read a statement prepared by Moon for the gathering. It referred to
America as God's final hope, "his precious jewel which he prepared
for the final battle against atheistic communism in the last days."
- Moon's statement emphasized the need for churches to
unite-a central theme of Unification teaching. "Here in prison God
can use me to awaken America more powerfully than ever before. America's
religious communities must be united to preserve religious freedom."
- Chris Nauser, a 36-year-old Moonie from Switzerland,
viewed the rally as "just one part of the whole development of an
awakening" that will sweep the world. He shares the belief of most
of Moon's followers that Moon himself is the Messiah. The Unification Church
teaches that Jesus Christ failed in his redemptive mission and, before
his death, lied about his coming resurrection. Moonies teach that mankind
is in need of physical redemption, which will come by the marriage of an
ideal man and woman. The man is to be from Korea-Moon himself.
