Doctrines Of The Moon
Doctrines Of Darkness
In Part 4 of this series we will concentrate on the doctrines of the Rev. Moon, and some of his teachings.
The serious Christian, as well as the secular citizen, must ask the following pertinent questions -- the alternative being hiding ones head in the sand, or pretending to see the Emperor's clothing...
1. Are these Moon and Central Intelligence associations of leading evangelicals really that important?
2. Should one be concerned about the large exchanges of money between these men and organizations affiliated with Moon?
3. What exactly is being "bought" with this money?
4. Is the Unification Church just another 'denomination', or is it something much more sinister, perhaps building to the fulfillment of the well understood prophecies of Scripture which say the Church will fall away (from the faith) in the last days?
Certainly every sincere Christian should be concerned over every one of the above issues. From the Christian point of view, the integrity of the faith is at stake, as well as the eternal destiny of untold millions. As Christians, those who claim to hold to the faith are commanded to sound the trumpet of alarm at the first sign of danger. The truth though, is that the trumpet is sounding very late in the assault and many are being caught off guard.
Those who believe we are living in the 'last days' must be aware that it is promised in scripture that in the end-times MANY will depart from the faith and follow false doctrines that are very seductive and deceptive (2 Timothy 4:3-4), even in the name of Christ, even by those claiming to be "of Christ." Jesus himself gave these express warnings.
Since it is firmly established that Christianity's leading evangelicals are embracing the Rev. Moon (under the leadership of Jerry Falwell, Tim LaHaye, Paul Crouch and many more) in the pursuit of worldly, political power and influence, we will look at the doctrines of the Unification Church in regards to its beliefs concerning Jesus and His role as the Messiah, where it appears unparalleled compromise has taken place.
The following can be found at the Rev. Moon's official sites, and Much more could be added, but for the sake of brevity we have limited the examples; The excerpts from Moon's material will be in quotes.
National Desk Contact:
Family Federation for World Peace and Unification,
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 /U.S. Newswire/ --
The following is a statement by Rev. Michael Jenkins,
President, Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, USA
"Unification teaching affirms that Rev. Moon has received the anointing of Jesus and stands in a messianic role as "True Parent." Unification teachings also affirm that the "anointing" or messianic role is conveyed to other pastors and leaders who, if called by God, take up the cross and follow Jesus."
Here we are first told that Moon received the anointing of Jesus. In Moon's bio (located at the above site) we find that he claims Jesus appeared to him, explaining sadly of His failure, and anointing Moon as the true Messiah. Also note that the teachings place everyone on the level of Christ, if they espouse Moon's doctrine.
Seminars in the Spirit World with the Four Religious Founders
February 3- April 11, 2001
Dr. Sang Hun Lee,
Presiding Reporter: Young Soon Kim

"Father Moon's position on Jesus as Lord and Savior is founded upon his personal faith in and experience with Jesus. Yet he tells us that it was Jesus who guided him to have an open heart for all the religions of the world! As we seek to unify the Body of Christ and bring unity among all faiths, we pray that you may be open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit so that we, as the Christian family, will have such love as to fulfill Jesus prayer in John 17 - "That ALL may be one." That we might be like Jesus and manifest such love as to bring unity and understanding to all the religions of the world. With this thought in mind, please consider the following revelations."
Notice we are being led to believe that all religions are the 'body of Christ', and should be embraced as such. The Moon agenda is that "all may be one". This is an affront to every religion, and especially to the blood of Jesus who bought the Church -- that "Church" being clearly defined in scripture as those who have entered into faith in the sacrifice and irrevocable, eternal Lordship of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins.
"I am deeply touched by the warm love of Jesus, the compassion of Buddha, the proper etiquette of Confucius, the absolute faith of Mohammed, the intelligence of Socrates, and Saint Augustine's passion and ambition for God. I am indeed inspired by their pledge and determination to live in the attendance of God as their Parent, offering to him all of their thoughts and truths. As I received and recorded the messages from these great religious founders in the spirit world, I wished that earthly people could resemble them in their unity of heart and mind, in their humble acceptance of the truths from other religions, and in their love for one another transcending religions and denominations."
Young Soon Kim
April 11, 2001
Young Soon Kim is a unification church leader, and promotes communication with the dead, as do Moon and all his devoted followers. Moon's doctrine also teaches that departed souls can take over a living body and live through that host, thus carrying on with their teachings. This is certainly against all Christian doctrine, and is portrayed in scripture as evil, even forbidden. It is actually the same as the Christian doctrine of demon possession.
"As I was leading this gathering, I experienced something infinitely painful in my heart, and thought: "If only earthly people could witness these scenes (his visions) and experience them, then God and True Parents could restore this world much more quickly."

It is Moon's stated mission as well that he is the one who will restore the earth, and restore all men to God.
"Each of these religious founders had experiences so moving, they rapidly progressed and clearly understood God's current providential purposes. And whenever they had time, they visited friends from other religions. Such scenes were so beautiful. Their reflections were similar to each other: "I think that I can understand the heart of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is toiling so hard on Earth for the sake of world peace." "
Prophecy foretells the day when men will proclaim 'peace' - and that the world, for a very short time, will even be at peace. The prophecies also inform us that this is a false peace -- an illusion. Today many in the world, Moon and a multitude of major evangelicals, are currently working toward this peace, and it appears most of the world will embrace it, be it willingly or through the deceits and manipulations of the deceiver(s) whom Christ forewarned would come.

"Then if any man says to you, "Come, Christ is here", or "He is over there;" do not believe them. For there will arise false Christs, and false prophets, and they shall demonstrate great signs and power; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the very elect of God. Remember, I have warned you in advance! Therefore, if they shall say to you, "Look, He is in the desert"; do not go to see: or, "Look, He is in secret places;" Do not believe them. For as the lightning shines out of the east and flashes even to the west, likewise will be the Coming of the Son of Man." - Matthew 24:23-27.

"Now, the four religious founders,
(He is speaking here of Confucius, Buddha, Mohammed, and Jesus) along with Socrates and St. Augustine who also attended the seminars, (supposedly in heaven) are pursuing the same direction; it is the direction of the providence of God and True Parents. They try not to show their own distinctive characteristics and are making shared efforts to be united in one direction. And they are earnestly praying that the direction of earthly people will also be one."
The message here is quite clear. Namely, that Jesus, Confucius, Buddha and Mohammed are themselves working toward the unification of all religions. Would this unification also embrace Satanism?
Dr. Sang Hun Lee
from the spirit world material:
"...God has been suffering as if He were a sinner until now, although He is not, and He has not been able to manifest Himself to His full capacity although He is the Creator of all things. Likewise, although He is the King of light, He has been enduring in darkness, unable to illuminate the whole world in His light. Until the arrival of the day of liberation, He could not experience peace in His heart nor could he fully manifest His light."
Notice what a weak God is portrayed here... his creation limits his power so that he is unable to do anything. He is unable even to experience peace, and unable to shed his light. He is portrayed as a weak and captive God. This is certainly not the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who raises up and tears down kingdoms at His will; the God that parted the Red Sea and raised Jesus of Nazareth from the dead.
"The day of God's emancipation arrived only when He could be crowned as the King of Kings, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, with the fall of Lucifer. Now, Lucifer is returned to his original position and God is also crowned as the King. That took place on January 13, 2001."
Here the Unification Church teaches that God was captive and HAD TO BE EMANCIPATED! Also they claim that Lucifer was returned to his original position, meaning that he is reconciled to God, sitting in heaven guarding the throne, and that he is no longer "the Adversary" as his name implies. They go on to say that man's unification will rid the world of evil. This certainly sets us up for the receiving of the Antichrist and the false prophet. Anyone familiar with Scripture knows that the last time mankind achieved "unification," God destroyed the endeavor knowing it was evil (Genesis 11).
"..Now, all human beings truly have entered a new era and received the precious master."
Regardless to who they are referring to as precious master, whether Moon or a homogenized god, this statement is certainly ridiculous and untrue considering the violent and lust filled, covetous day in which we live.
"..A new era refers to the time God can enter a realm of total liberation. On the other hand, to human beings, it is an incomparably precious gift. And the new era is a time we can live with God in joy and happiness, attending Him as the True Parent of all humanity. It is the time when the original world that He intended to create will begin. Thus, for human beings, what day could be more joyful than this day? January 13, 2001 was the day when, representing all humankind, the Messiah attended God as the True Parent of entire humankind."
The "Messiah" referred to here is Rev Moon. The god referred to here must certainly be a false and Luciferian god as he is ruling presently the affairs of men on all levels and in every area of society. Moon also refers to his wife and himself as the "true parents of all humanity", thereby making himself god, when referring to god as the true parent. This is what Antichrist will do as we are foretold in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-5, and several other passages of scripture.
"... Unless we are cleansed of the original sin, human beings from the moment of conception are not in their original state. In order for us to be cleansed of the original sin, we should be reborn. The method of rebirth is to receive the marriage Blessing with the Reverend Moon as the officiator. That is the best way to be cleansed of the original sin. This cleansing remains to be done for all humankind. Only after having gone through this cleansing can we personally stand before God and grow as original human beings."
Christians hold to Christ's blood as being the agent of cleansing from all sin. He is our covering and our offering, the "pascal" (Passover) lamb of sacrifice for sins. For two decades Moon has performed mass marriages and many religious ministers from all faiths have submitted to these marriages. The Rev. Moon picks who is mated with whom. Here we see the claim that it is Moon who cleanses us from all sin through a marriage approved, performed and blessed by him personally. This is a physical salvation that is false and blasphemous to every thing that is truly Christian.
"...We cannot directly go to God or stand before Him until we cleanse our first ancestors' fundamental sin. But we of our own power cannot set the conditions necessary to resolve our ancestors' fundamental sin. A central figure anointed by God must appear and cleanse the fundamental sin committed by our first ancestors. That particular central figure is the one chosen by God, the one whose blood lineage was purified through generations of human ancestors. That figure should set numerous indemnity conditions for the sake of returning us to the original condition from which our first human ancestors deviated. By setting indemnity conditions, he can stand before God in the position of Adam prior to the fall. From that position, he should bring us back into God's lineage, saving us from the sins of all humanity. On that foundation, he can build God's nation, crown God as the King, and lead us to God so that we all can live with God, together attending Him for eternity. Through his officiating at the Blessing of God, humanity comes to stand on the side of God's eternal lineage. That Blessing is the ultimate salvation for humankind. Our ancestors' wrongdoing degraded us to a fallen position. Returning to God's lineage saves us. Then, who is the specific figure anointed by God to bring us into the position of salvation? It is Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He is the Messiah for all humanity, the Second Coming of Christ."
There certainly can be no mistake that Moon is setting himself up to be The Christ. Neither can there be a mistake as to whom these evangelical leaders are with whom Moon has some influence. Can Tim LaHaye, Paul Crouch, Jerry Falwell and so many others sit on Moon's front groups and organizations for years on end, and put Moon's men in the high levels of their organizations and coalitions and still claim ignorance to what and whom they are supporting? Can Falwell, Schuller, Beverly LaHaye, Gary Bauer, and so many thousands of other ministers claim ignorance as to whom they are supporting when this information is blazoned on Moon's own site. As shown in parts 1-3 of this series, In 1996, when so many of these ministers were paid between $80,000-150,000 to speak at just one of his rallies, none of them tried to back out, and they gave great credibility to Moon before thousands. Only Bill Cosby - not affiliated with any religious organization but hired as 'entertainment' for the event - was offended enough to try to back out, and Ralph Reed (see bio in side bar above) gave his money to charity.
"...We were first shocked by the notion that providentially, someone must come who can save humankind. We just maintained a heavy silence while holding the serious yet unspoken question as to who that person could be. Jesus first broke the silence and spoke quietly but seriously, "That person is none other than the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He should be the Messiah and Savior of all humanity."
Here it is claimed that Jesus Himself sadly claimed that the Rev. Moon was the only one able to save mankind. This is the man whom our Christian leaders, including Paul Crouch, Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye and so many more have embraced, or otherwise entangled themselves with for the purpose of political power.
"....Reverend Moon walked a path of unbelievable indemnity, going beyond the cross to become victorious as God's anointed."

Now it is claimed Moon went beyond the sacrifice of Jesus to become the anointed, which is the literal meaning of Messiah.
"...Jesus is the Messiah who was sent by God. Due to human ignorance, his people did not receive him even in his own hometown. Rejected, he was unable to exercise his complete power as the Messiah. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is one anointed to fulfill the mission that Jesus was unable to complete."
How sad that "Christian" evangelical leaders would embrace this man. This truly is a travesty, and the epitome of apostasy, the departure from the faith. The leaders have betrayed the flock, proving that they are not true shepherds, but rather nothing more than "hired men", who sell out to what they perceive as the highest bidder.
Also from Rev Moon's site we find this press release, again showing the evangelical and government support this man receives...


Rev. Moon Calls for Establishment of New World Religious Body
World Culture and Sports Festival '99
Special Convocation, 'Family Ethics and World Peace'
Feb 4th -8th at the Lotte HotelRev.
Moon Calls for Establishment of New World Religious Body The Reverend Sun Myung Moon called for the establishment of a new, UN-related organization composed of leaders from the world's major religions. Citing the ultimately ineffective efforts of current peace organizations in securing world peace, Reverend Moon said that the success of world peace in the next millennium hinges on the involvement of united, world religious leaders. "The reality shows us, however, that political, economic, and technological efforts alone have not effectively achieved those goals(of world peace). Only if these efforts are supported by the more internal ones of religion, education, and culture can ideal results be secured," said Reverend Moon, as he addressed an internationally diverse group of more than 800 guests at a conference on "Family Ethics and World Peace", at the Lotte hotel yesterday. The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, a group founded by Rev. Moon, convened the conference to solve the problems confronting society, most notably the breakdown of the family. Rev.Moon emphatically asked the assembly, composed of world leader from over 100 countries, to focus their energy during the next three days of the conference on the task of formulating this new religious governing body. The idea was warmly received by the participants and Rev. Moon was praised by Gen. Alexander M. Haig, Jr., who introduced Rev. Moon tithe assembly and credited Rev. Moon as being instrumental in overthrowing international communism.
Again, from Moon's site:

Chicago, Illinois
Friday - June 29, 2001
We wanted to do something a little different, that was a BBQ.
The Cathedral Holy Bible BC people and FFWPU members were so excited, because of the BBQ and we did door to door, inviting the people to the BBQ. We divided the foods to prepare and came early in the evening and started cooking. Host church people set up most of the BBQ. Rev. Booker Person himself came early and helped us a lot. It was a nice cooking fellowship centered on BBQ. At same time 20 (over 10 years old) FFWPU young people came and did door to door centering on Mrs. Sometani and Mrs. Nagai. It was very hot weather, but they were so determined to do it, because it is 40 days special time now. About 200 people were gathered together for the BBQ. They all enjoyed BBQ and we all took pictures together in front of the Church.
The revival started 7:30pm. 500 people were there. It was such a special day because FFWPU President of North America, Rev. Michael Jenkins came. Rev. M. Walker, Rev. Owens, Rev. Stokes, Rev. James Hampton, Rev. Fred. Harris, Bishop Crawford, Rev. Connie Bansa, and many more pastors, over 15 Pastors and ministers were there. They all were happy to see Rev. Jenkins as well as they see Father Moon.
The majority of the audience was young, 10 to 18 years old, and came from Rev. Edward Davis's church and Rev. Booker J. Person's Church and CARP and FFWPU young people. Our CARP & STF members were great; they always supported this revival.
What a deception! Supposed ministers of God enticing children through a Bar-b-que, to seduce them into the doctrines of Rev. Moon! The approval of Moon began with our most highly positioned leaders. They in turn began to recruit ministers of the ranks right below them and then the levels below that. After Moon's release from prison, Tim LaHaye and Gary Bauer had their names on a mailing to ministers across the nation, inviting them to all expense paid trips to what appeared to be evangelical rallies and conventions.(1) Once there, they were recruited aggressively by Moon personally, as well as by others from his church, even handing out expensive gifts. I have received personal emails from certain of these men who were invited and refused when they inquired and found the were actually invited to an event promoting Moon.
Blessing '99 Report
(Blessing '99 was a gathering of leaders and spokespersons from more than 8 world religions)
A word or two on the religious leaders
From the Moon website
"The Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace (IRFWP) was a co-sponsor of the Special Convocation of the World Culture and Sports Festival (WCSF). Approximately 50 major leaders from the world's religions participated in the convocation. Their presence was important for a number of reasons, as there was an uncommon degree of emphasis on inter-religious dialogue and harmony from Father this time. This emphasis was particularly evident at the inaugural plenary of the newly founded Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP)."
"...Professor Mumtaz Ahmad spoke from the perspective of Islam, Professor Selengut from that of Judaism, Venerable Kongchinda offered a Buddhist point of view, Professor Smart, a Protestant (Anglican) perspective, and Archbishop Milingo a Catholic view. This session was inspiring and informative. Additionally the faith representatives who spoke themselves embodied these very ideals which they insisted could be fully embraced without internal tension. ...Professor Shivamurthy Swamiji of Karnataka offered Hindu prayers, Khamba Lama Dambajav from Mongolia offered Buddhist prayers, Rabbi Herzel Kranz offered Jewish prayers, Archimandrite Vikentiy Miskov offered prayers from the Christian Orthodox tradition, Archbishop Emanuel Milingo from the Catholic tradition, Reverend T.L. Barrett of Chicago offered prayers as a Protestant, and Professor Manjit SinghJathedar offered blessings from the Sikh tradition." (by Frank Kaufmann/Listed under Teachings/

What we have here, is exactly the same thing we had with the National Day of Prayer, in Washington D.C. in September, 2001. That day Billy Graham, and members of every major religion met to mourn and pray for the nation after the September 11th tragedy.That day Billy Graham, of all people prayed with all these men and religions to the homogenized god of Abraham, and Mohammed. This is the end goal of the Rev. Moon, and the end goal of Antichrist and the false prophet.

The latest Unification Movement Worldwide News
Report on a "Revival of Christianity" pastors meeting
Yesterday (February 23, 1999) I had the pleasure of attending a 1/2 day seminar for pastors and lay leaders hosted by Promise Keepers, Mission America and Mainstay Ministries. (For further info and
The theme for the day was the "Revival of Christianity." There was much talk on this theme and there seemed to be some genuine testimony that there was a beginning to a third great revival in the US today. There seemed to be an acknowledgement that the church has been pushed out of the center of the culture and that time has run out. There must be unity among the churches. Mission America is calling for every Christians home to be a light house for God and for all Christians to pray for their neighbors. Promise Keepers are calling for revival events to be held on Jan 1st, 2000 outside each state capital. Mainstay Ministries were calling for people to buy their products.
Of Course. And is it any wonder that the ecumenical group promise keepers is endorsed by Moon? What a dangerous day for the Christian faith.
The Following Is From Dave Hunt's "What's Happening To The Faith?"
Zondervan recently published a book titled 'More Than One Way?' Four Views On Salvation in a Pluralistic World. Echoing Billy Graham, who has said, "I respect other paths to God", Leighton Ford declared, "Preach the gospel, but don't be so negative as to refuse to endorse or work with those who belong to a group that proclaims a different gospel". Of course, for the Christian, there are no "other paths to God" and no "different gospels" to be "endorsed". And here is Jerry Falwell posing in a warm hug with Sun Myung Moon after speaking at a plenary session of Moon's "Christian Ecumenism in the Americas" conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. Falwell has called Moon an "unsung hero [to] the cause of freedom" who was "to be commended" for his determination, courage, and endurance in support of his beliefs. In fact, Moon is a cult leader who opposes freedom and whose mind control tactics have enslaved his followers.
And finally from Christianity Today magazine:

In Perspective: Why Are Pastors Flying to Moon?
Recent black clergy firings are only the latest chapter in Unification Church's efforts to court Christian leaders.
By Todd Hertz
posted 8/8/01
A Washington Post article reported on July 25 that approximately 35 African-American clergy have been fired or threatened with dismissal after tagging along with the Rev. Sun Myung Moon on his recent "We Will Stand" U.S. tour.The article alleges that the ministers, mostly from the South, "have been voted out of office by church boards that object to any affiliation with Moon." The article has been vehemently denied by a group of involved pastors (including Imani Temple archbishop George A. Stallings, who was married at a Moon mass wedding). This situation may be the boiling point in a mounting unrest over the increasing close ties between Moon's Unification Church and African-American clergy and on on-going mission for Moon.
Moon has found some pretty alluring ways to attract Christians to his cause. And he apparently has the funds to do it. While no exact numbers could be found on the church's worth, Moon-owned properties are connected to The Washington Times and a laundry list of other businesses. He's a regular travel agency with all the trips he's historically given out. And that's not to mention the free gifts as an April Washington Post article pointed out when Moon invited over 300 black clergy members to attend a recent tour stop at Washington, D.C. After his speech, Moon called more than 100 pastors to the stage, and each was presented with a gold Christian Bernard watch. "The gold watches are a personal expression from Reverend Moon, and the gold represents his unchanging love," the Rev.Phillip Schanker, a Moon spokesman, said in an interview.

Schanker said the watches were provided by a Moon-owned business and cost several thousand dollars apiece.Moon's also quite the matchmaker. He has married thousands of couples in his infamous mass weddings-some of them Christian clergy. Stallings, who broke away from the Roman Catholic Church in 1989 over issues of race,was recently married to a Japanese woman who worked for Moon.But the most publicized of the weddings came in the same ceremony as Roman Catholic Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo took the hand of a South Korean woman Moon provided. The Vatican didn't exactly send a toaster oven because-surprise-the Catholic church doesn't really see eye-to-eye with the whole clergy-getting-married thing.Milingo, the controversial "witch-doctor priest," has been given a deadline to give up his bride or he'll be excommunicated. So far, the archbishop hasn't made any real steps in meeting that ultimatum - such as leaving his new wife or disassociating from Moon. But he has released a public statement and sought an audience with Pope John Paul II.

Yesterday, he met with the Pope. In a letter to the Pope, Milingo wrote, "I know that the action I have taken is both surprising and difficult to understand, but I assure you that I am acting out of my deepest faith in Jesus, and my undying love for the Catholic Church."...Many conservative evangelical speakers have attended Moon-connected rallies including a Family Federation for World Peace event in 1986 where Ralph Reed, Beverly LaHaye, Gary Bauer, and Robert H. Schuller spoke. A 1998 Christianity Today article reported: "Conservatives find Moon attractive because they share many of his moral and political values," says James Beverly, theology and ethics professor at Ontario Theological Seminary. "Those similarities are significant enough that questions of theological differences are put on hold." Beverly, who has studied Moon for two decades, also notes that speakers at such events often have their trips to exotic locales fully financed in addition to receiving generous honorariums. During Moon's tax-evasion trial, frequent rallies were held for "religious freedom."

Well-respected Christian leaders such as Tim LaHaye spoke at these events. LaHaye told Christianity Today at the time: "By no stretch of the imagination does my participation in that rally indicate that I support Reverend Moon's doctrine. Frankly, I don't really know what his doctrine is. But in America, Reverend Moon and Reverend Sileven (Nebraska pastor) and every other religious organization ought to have the freedom to communicate their doctrine within the framework of the law."
A Moon employee estimated that half of the several thousand pastors attending such a rally in Washington D.C. in 1984 were in attendance on a free ticket. Darrel Malcolm, at the time was senior pastor of Webber Street Church of Christ in Urbana, Illinois."I felt there was a hidden agenda of trying to buy legitimacy (for Moon)within the Christian community," Malcom said in the Christianity Today article. "I am not ready to grant that I do not consider their group Christian."Not all of this evangelical-courting is necessarily in the past. It continues.

While not many Christian leaders may have realized it at the time, Moon sponsored George W. Bush's Inaugural Prayer Luncheon for Unity and Renewal on Jan. 19. More than 1,400 ministers, civic and political leaders attended the event. Moon spoke to the attendees while church members handed out Unification books and pamphlets. Southern Baptist Executive Committee President and Chief Executive Officer Morris H. Chapman told Baptist Press:"I was shocked to see that Sun Myung Moon was on the program and in essence, the host. I was even more surprised on the way out of the banquet hall to be given a propaganda book on the Unification Church.(The experience) will serve to remind evangelical Christians that the world increasingly is filled with wolves in sheep's clothing."And although he is 81-years-old, it seems Moon will continue making headlines with such methods of attracting spiritual leaders to his Unification Movement. In a speech at his 80th birthday celebration he said a union of religions is the only way to prepare for the "last days."
**Note: An interesting side note here. A man by the name of Lon Mabon, was a recent member of Tim LaHaye's CNP. This is a man who truly would never support the unity of various religions at the cost of compromising the faith, neither would he follow these men into the NWO. He held a conservative rally, where a lesbian reporter showed up uninvited and began heckling while there. Mr Mabon asked she be escorted out. She sued both Mabon and the man who escorted her out and was awarded $60,000 between the two. Mr Mabon was subsequently jailed, and to date Tim LaHaye, who rallied for Moon, has yet to put forth the time and energy for this man who truly stood for what LaHaye claims to stand for. Of course it is documented that the Rev. Moon received LaHaye's full support. Also of interest, several people have been banned from the official "Left Behind" website BBS for expressing their religious views in opposition to the doctrines set forth by the pseudo-novel by LaHaye and Jenkins. So much for standing up for religious freedoms!) - Eric Jewell

Final Comments

Jesus told a parable many are familiar with. The parable of the ten virgins. These were bridesmaids who were expecting the coming of the Groom, and were waiting to accompany Him to his wedding. We are told that five of them were wise, and five were foolish and did not prepare themselves by having sufficient oil for their lamps. The next statement though is very revealing... all ten, the wise and the foolish slumbered and slept. He told another parable of the wheat and the tares. The wheat was planted but while the workers slept, an enemy came in and sowed tares (weeds) among the wheat. At the harvest they were separated. It would appear that it is time for those calling themselves "Christian" to wake from their sleep.

I am currently looking for firsthand information concerning the use of evangelical organizations as cover for covert activities in Central America, and nations in Africa or Asia. If you have such info please contact me at . All names etc. will be held in the strictest confidence. Thank you.

But a number of pastors are wary of the Moonies' motives. 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 co-chairman 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."
"There are some issues we need to be aware of, but I personally do not perceive as great a threat as some who sponsored the rally," he says. "I felt there was a hidden agenda of trying to buy legitimacy [for Moon] within the Christian community. I'm not ready to grant that."
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."
Lori Antolock, deputy assistant to Moon's top aide, says half of the several thousand pastors who attended the Washington rally were offered expense paid trips.
