This guy actually had himself crowned as God on Capitol Hill, Washinton DC. He is the Leader of the Unification Church, Sun Myung Moon
There are not many religions that I will openly come out against, but the Unification Church is definitely one I consider a spiritual fraud that is milking its deluded followers of their money.
I found this video on Youtube of a Unification Church preacher sent to Japan from Korea demanding ALL the cash and possessions of the people foolish enough to join the Church. The video is in Japanese, and I have translated the demands for cash below. The translation starts at 1:32 minutes into the video.
Unification Church preacher:
Now, at this time, on this promisory note, WRITE IT ALL!
Write your husbands name, your wifes name, your phone number, your address.
Then write the details of all you own.
This means things in your name, from cars, houses, buildings, rice paddies, fields, WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING YOU OWN!
DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
I am sure that some apologist for the Unification Church is going to say that American preachers make appeals on TV for money as well, but this is different, much different. How wicked the leaders of this Church are, but it gets worse.
As I wrote in the caption above, Sun Myung Moon had a coronation declaring himself the savior and Messiah in the presence of US Senators and Congressmen.
Coronations are not everyday occurrences on Capitol Hill — the Capitol being the people’s house, an indelible symbol of the republic, etc.
So it’s odd that a man was crowned in the Dirksen Senate Office Building earlier this year in the presence of several lawmakers and that the event is only now drawing attention.
It appears that at least some lawmakers were drawn to the event unaware of what would happen and who would be there. Others who the organizers claim were present say they were not.
The Rev. Sun Myung Moon, former felon and current owner of The Washington Times, was the man in the spotlight, declaring himself humanity’s “savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent.”
The event, which took place March 23, was sponsored by the Washington Times Foundation and the International Interreligious Federation for World Peace (IIFWP), a Moon-led group. Present at different points during the event were Reps. Danny Davis (D-Ill.), Curt Weldon (R-Pa.), Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Sen. Mark Dayton (R-Minn.).
He also declared that Hitler and Stalin were now his followers.
One of Moon’s claims that evening was that “Hitler and Stalin have found strength in my teachings, mended their ways and been reborn as new persons.”
People that follow Moon and the Unification Church are going down a dark path to personal destruction, as well as spiritual decay for holding up a mere man, not even a good or moral man, and regarding him as a God. Interestingly, the bible tells of men like Sun Myung Moon, and identifies them as ‘servants of Satan’ -
(2 Corinthians 11:13-15) 13For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
If following Sun Myung Moon is the way to get to heaven, then I am not interested in going. What a wicked man, and what a wicked organization. I feel sorry for the decieved church members, but with all the information available about the Unification Church, I cant help but think that “There’s a sucker born every minute”.
