FOUNDER
Sun Myung Moon, born 1920 in Korea
Told by Jesus he would complete work of salvation Jesus failed at when on earth (he is 2nd coming)
Said transported to hell, defeated Satan in battle, both Satan and Jesus bowed & worshipped him

NAME
“Moonies” = names after Moon
“Unification” = unite all religions & people of the world, all saved & perfected, earth restored

AUTHORITY
Bible not God’s Word, not for us; not accurate, just symbolic; quote it to sound ‘Christian’ but are not
Moon final authority, truth revealed to him by visionary chats with Jesus, Moses, Buddha, John Baptist
“Divine Principle” main book, say Moon wrote it but written by Yee Hye Wen, a follower

VIEW of GOD
Dual qualities: spirit and energy; God not omniscient, not omnipotent
Man is visible form of God; God is invisible form of man (God and man are one) [Mysticism]
“Father” they pray to is Moon

VIEW of the TRINITY
No such thing

VIEW of CHRIST
Not God, just a man in whom God dwelt; “Christ” conditional title that must be earned (Moon did it)
Jesus same as us except without original sin, to start new human race but killed before had children
Satan invaded Jesus’ body, John the Baptist responsible for crucifixion of Jesus (not God’s will)
No physical resurrection or return, Moon is the Second Coming
Not accepted as Christian group by anyone

VIEW of the HOLY SPIRIT
“True Mother” (God is Father, needs mother to give birth to life)

VIEW of SIN
Adam & Eve put in Eden to develop into perfection & form Trinity with God
Failed: Eve sinned (fornication with Satan)

VIEW of SALVATION
WW II paid world’s indemnity for sin, paving way for Messiah (Moon, started ministry in 1946)
1st & 2nd Adam failed, 3rd Adam (Moon) will succeed by starting perfect race with own perfect children – 1960 married 2nd wife Hakja Han and now have 8 children

VIEW of HEAVEN & HELL
No eternal hell for anyone; Earth will become heaven when perfect
Big push to recruit disenchanted middle-class whites, isolate & brainwash them
