I. Truth best explains all the facts, found at the convergence of: (authenticated) Revelation;  Reason (logic consistency); Reality (works).


Appeal: Peace, Family, Morality (no: drinking/smoking/gambling); Anti-communist; “Love,” belonging, conformity, purpose, “authority”

"Begin with a well-seasoned Taoist philosophy, add Christian words and phrases and some Bible verses, and stir briskly until they blend. Now add a bit of spiritism, a pinch of numerology, a dab of physics, and a dash of anti-communism; mix it altogether, using a Korean Messiah, and you have the recipe for one of the newest religious movements sweeping America."  Bjornstad,  Moon Is Not the Son
“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... 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.” bibleprobe.com/moonies.htm


II. Unbiblical re: Person and work of Christ; Sin & Salvation; Purpose;  No peace or Kingdom w/o King; beat members
Rm 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

“The Bible is not truth itself, but a textbook that teaches truth. Today's religions have failed to lead man out of darkness, so there must be a new light. The Bible was a textbook to those of 2,000 years ago who had a low spiritual and intellectual standard. “

Cross vs Crown - Moon is “Messiah, Lord of the Second Advent, but also Emperor of the Universe (this world and the spirit world).
Jesus was the illegitimate son of Mary and Zechariah, was not supposed to die on the cross, but since he did not marry and failed in his mission

Rev 22:12 "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last." 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Moon denies the deity of Christ. Jesus was to marry the second Eve to produce sinless children and become true parents. It was never God's purpose for Jesus to die. Christ was crucified by the will of men, not of his or his Father's will. Jesus failed his mission to become King and father perfect children. Jesus will not return to earth. Jesus doesn't provide salvation.  Jesus rose a spirit man thus redeeming man spiritually, but man still needs a physical salvation, which requires another Messiah.

“Of course, Jesus stands in the position of a son to the Lord of the Second Advent, and calls him 'Father' “ tparents.org/MSTRSP-1
Mi 23:9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.


Salvation: Marriage Blessing (and sex by “perfected” people yields children free of  original sin 
Pray in name of true parents  1Tim 2:5 there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus (1Cor 15:3; 1Pt 2:24)

Before Adam and Eve married to form perfect children, Eve committed fornication with Satan, this produced the spiritual fall. Hoping to undo her action, Eve persuaded Adam to live with her as husband and wife. This was the physical fall since neither had attained perfection. Thus human history deviated from God's will of perfection first, marrying and producing perfect children. The individual must be restored, perfected, marry and produce children of a perfect nature. Blessing and 7 year course for “perfection.” unification.net/bif/bif-5-1


III. Demonic: Pride; Possession "If you tell a lie to make a person better it is not sin...even God tells lies very often." (Moon in Master Speaks, 3-16-72 pg.11)
Titus 1:2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago, Num 23:19

"Then in one sense, Father, Heavenly Father will say, "Reverend Moon is far better than me, the Heavenly Father."
"Do you mean (Jesus will be) God's eldest son, or the Master's (Moon)?" Moon responded, "The meaning is the same." \


Deceptive: “...we must quote the Bible and use it to explain the Divine Principle. After we receive the inheritance of the Christian church, we will be free to teach without the Bible” tparents.org/MSTRSP-7.htm

Hypocritical: Four imprisonments; Four wives, 15+ children; Four disciples: few days temple; 3 months thirty churches

Cultic isolation, deprivation, dependence; slavish conformity; indoctrination  See: Truthbase.net Biblical Church, Culture Club, or Cult

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. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.  See Faith Use it or Lose it


Questions for Reflection/Discussion/Response:
1. Why would someone raised in or “pastoring” a Christian church embrace a “religion” that denies the virgin birth, deity and work of Christ?
2. How are cults and Biblical churches similar/dissimilar? What's the difference between unity and uniformity? Persuasion/Manipulation?
3. How does one know if  “subjective revelation” is from God or demonic? How does someone development discernment? Can you delegate it?
4. Should believers in Christ seek to persuade/evangelize others? How should Biblical believers deal with people straying? Is that love?
5. Are your beliefs concepts, conclusions, or convictions? How does your life validate your beliefs or the truth or Scripture?
