What is Church?

Posted On Oct 1 2018 by

I wrote this editorial five years ago, but it is till very applicable today, as well, and applies equally to the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary where I now affiliate. Fundamentally, we need to look at “Church” in a new way. Richard Blessed Central Families are the core of the Providence 6/2/2013 I believe that this is the era for Tribal Messiahs to take the lead.  The substantial work of the providence cannot be done by the Family Church or Family Federation.  It is done by individual Blessed Central Families and small groups of Blessed Central Families who do ministry …

Rod of Iron Kingdom Book Review

Posted On Jul 15 2018 by

Rod of Iron Kingdom by Hyung Jin Sean Moon helped me to better understand the meaning of the essential three elements of the Nation of God, or Cheon il Guk that Rev. Sun Myung Moon Teaches about.  Those elements are people, land and sovereignty. The first nine chapters outline a clear apologetic for why the ownership of firearms is a basic human right, the responsibility of Christians and an essential ingredient of a free society.  The book introduces the Feb. 28th, 2018 Book of Life Blessing at the Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania.  This marriage blessing caused a firestorm of interest …

Posted On Jul 13 2018 by

I was fortunate to work in a key project that Rev. Sun Myung Moon founded in 1987 to save America from its moral and spiritual and physical decline.  In his wisdom, Rev. Moon founded a business with the salvation of America at its heart.  The logo embodies the heart behind this ministry   It was originally named the Happy Mind Home Shopping Club.  However, due to complaints from the Home Shopping Network, the name was changed to the Happy Mind Shop at Home Service. The service was launched in September, 1987 from a warehouse on V St. NE in Washington, …


Is Hillary Clinton Really a Woman of Integrity and the “Lesser of Two Evils”

Posted On Oct 24 2016 by

Hillary Clinton is not a woman of integrity. You could only believe that she has integrity and is the “lesser of two evils” if you think that there is no difference between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker , the protagonists of the Star Wars movies, or if you believe there is no difference between Jesus and Satan. Webster’s New World Dictionary defines “integrity” as “the quality or state of being of sound moral principle; uprighness, honesty, and sincerity.”  Hillary Clinton’s words and actions regarding her personal email accounts used while Secretary of State are byzantine enough to make your eyes …
