Sun Myung Moon is the owner of the Washington Times newspaper and the UPI wire service.
Sun Myung Moon openly states that "(John 8:58) does not signify that Jesus was God himself. Jesus, on earth was a man no different from us except for the fact that he was without original sin." With this statement we immediately need to call to mind that this is the spirit of the Antichrist (like Islam) which we were warned about. This eliminates Moon's church from ever being considered Christian. It gets worse for the Moonies. Unification theology denies the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ. Moonie church spokesman, Dr. Kim wrote, "If Joseph was not the Father, who was?...." Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:26-2:20 give such detail of the virgin conception and the birth of Jesus that no serious Bible student could miss it. Reminiscent of Jehovah Witnesses - who wrote their own Bible, Moon wrote a book filled with such wacky theology as that above, and more. It is called "Divine Principle". The Divine Principle is authoritative scripture in the Unification Church, and is considered by Moonies to be superior to the Bible. A self-appointed Reverend, there is no history of Moon's ordination by any bona fide denomination in Korea or America. See more references in Scripture showing Jesus as God also: here
Shortly before the Second World War, Moon drifted from one "Pentecostal" group to another. It is no hidden fact that these groups blended séances, spritism, ancestral spirit guidance, and a host of occult practices with their "Pentecostal Christian" faith. What one ends up with is spiritism practiced in the name of Christianity, something exercised by many cults and abhorred by all genuine Christians.
It was through these spiritistic endeavors that Moon claimed to discover the nine levels of the spirit world, each of which he subjugated by questioning the spirits he faced. His supposed proof of authenticity is that Jesus, Confucius, Mohammed, and Buddha all appeared and agreed with his conclusions.
There are two features that distinguish the Moonies from all other cults: their fund-raising tactics and their mass weddings. Much has been written in magazines and newspapers about the deceptive tactics used in fund-raising, called "heavenly deception." This is the practice of justified lying, which is permissible because it is for good. During one of Moon's training sessions, a student asked "What about white lies?" "Rev." Moon answered, "If you tell a lie to make a person better, then that is not a sin." He further added, "Even God tells lies very often; you can se this throughout history."
But wait. Scripture tells
us God cannot lie Mr. Moon. Could you hold a meeting with Muhammad
of Islam again, and tell him this? He certainly has God frequently
changing his mind and lying about Jesus and biblical historical
facts in his Qur'an... See here:
Teach me thy way, O
LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy
name" - Psalm 86:11
Moon declared himself the Messiah:
To many observers, this bizarre scene would have looked like the apocalypse as depicted in "Left Behind" novels. Moon, now 87, the benefactor of conservative foundations like the American Family Coalition -- who served time in the 1980s for tax fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice -- has views somewhere to the right of the Taliban's Mullah Omar. Moon preaches that gays are "dung-eating dogs," Jews brought on the Holocaust by betraying Jesus, and the U.S. Constitution should be scrapped in favor of a system he calls "Godism" -- with him in charge. The man crowned "King of Peace" by congressmen once said, according to sermons reprinted in his church's Unification News: "Suppose I were to hit you with the baseball bat to stop you, bloodying your ear and breaking a bone or two, yet still you insisted on doing more work for Father."
What, exactly, drew
at least a dozen members of Congress to Moon's coronation? (By
the Unification Church's estimate, 81 congressmen attended, although
that number is probably high.) The event was the grand finale of
Moon's coast-to-coast "tear down the cross" Moonification
tour, intended to remove Christian crosses from almost 300 churches
in poor neighborhoods -- the idea being that the cross was an
obstacle to uniting religions under Moon.
