Remarks Public Speech

Remarks Public Speech

Sun Myung Moon
February 28, 2001
Chicago IL
Unofficial Notes from Peter Kim’s simultaneous translation by Charles Gilfillan

Several people gave remarks (more like preaching) including Rev. Dr. Jesse Evers “Praise the Lord, raise hands,” Rev. Hycel Taylor “Check the fruits,” and the hosting pastor, Rev. T. L. Barrett “Our earth will look like there’s a God, and Not just what he has done, but what he has inspired others to do”.
Father gave a short speech before the main Hoon Dok Hae reading. I hope somebody recorded it and will transcribe it. From memory and brief notes:
Is this a church or a hotel grand ballroom? (The sense being it was so full) Why are so many people gathered here tonight? Pray to go… bold and courageous, like soldiers. When God looks down, white, black, yellow, brown, do you think God will be confused? (Note: most of the audience was African-American.) Who will he go to first, white, black, yellow?…

Mix all together, what color will you get? A brown-gray color… 2,00 to 3,000 shouting out Amen. My voice was the greatest… My words my not please your ears, but listen with an open heart, and God’s blessing will be with you…

How many here are over 80? The spirit world will pay attention to those over 80, because they will go to the spirit world soon. Will the physical world people still be interested in me?… (something I could not understand)… So that I may deserve wherever I belong to (in the spirit world)…

Thank you. You helped me realize I have to study more about the spirit world… (then some words about him being handsome or not)… When nighttime comes, must deal with the darkness. What can overcome darkness? Light. What kind of light. The light of God’s love, can (something) and harmonize the darkness…

Rev. Moon knows spirit world well. God well. (God’s love, not power, knowledge, money)…

Cannot achieve the goal of love by yourself, need partner. Do you all need love? Absolutely yes. Absolute, unchanging, unique, eternal God. We need to be, too, to be a partner to God. You cannot change your gender as you wish. God need a man partner, and woman partner. Look at universe, everything is in a pair system of subject and object.

Centered on love. Absolute, unchanging, eternal… For man to be an object, the qualifications are also absolute, unchanging, and eternal… If you say, “I don’t need my partner…” you are trash. (There was more than the usual audience reaction here, mostly positive). No matter how great you are, you are only half a human being. Some say Rev. Moon is great. He is only half a human being. (my understanding being without Mother)… Man and woman have separate organs, man like convex and woman like concave. Why? God wants to put together and make a whole human. Some may say, how can you talk about convex and concave love organ? This means you have a long way to go…

People often talk about the human fall. In reality, misuse of love organ caused human fall.

It wasn’t mouth or any other thing. Misuse of love, false love, caused God’s sorrow for 6,000 years, created hell, unless correct problem… Most important organ, love organ, misuse can destroy your generation, descendants generation…

The owner of your love organ is actually your spouse… People do not understand this. That is why the world became evil… Unless we have true love between man and woman, cannot find God’s love… Once we practice true love, there cannot even be the word divorce or free sex…

Most precious organ of ourselves is love organ…

You might have opposed me, misunderstood me…

Use organ properly, determines the road to heaven or road to hell.. (something about thinking and praying about it, and Chicago will receive much blessing)…

What is the characteristic of the color black? Absorbs all other colors and everything else…

Generally speaking, people enjoy looking at rainbow colors rather than only one color. True love color is rainbow color. So people of 5 different colors. Actually there are 7 different colors of people. God likes rainbow color. God wonders how can I achieve rainbow color so I can watch eternally without getting tired…

I was told may famous clergy are supporting my crusade (the sense I got was from Chicago)…

(Father was saying he has to get down to the message he came to give, this all was extra, the message being more narrow and specific) Would you like to give me all 5 senses? I will buy them. I will also give 5 senses to create a good ambiance. (Note: T. L. Barrett’s introduction he used the word ambiance and explained it is better than “atmosphere”)
Oriental is the soil color. Black tropical. He said something also about white, which I did not catch. God did not create (the races) but nature created, so that we can protect ourselves (from nature). God is colorblind… Have you become true husband or wife? Or are you trying?… Life and love may end in your generation, but lineage lasts forever.

I apologize for the incompleteness and interpretations. I kind of interpret as I write, and I’m sure the translator was interpreting some things, too. Father gave his presentation quickly after that impromptu speech, then the awards, presentations, and they announced a second reading, which I could not stay for.
