Church destiny of success: Dr. Moon's followers and operations, a Hope for Peace

Rev. Y. M. / CIG News

How could a New Religious Movement emerge in the midst of so much persecution and misunderstanding, yet reach global level impact that governments and other religions do not have. How could that be done by a single man in less than a century?

Recent study set Rev. Sun Myung Moon as the most successful religious leader of our time and may be in the entire world history. His movement is not one of physical power, witnesses say, but example of the power of love. Read, Revolutionary Man of Peace

Rev. Moon is the theological center of the movement he founded in 1954, as well as a global business magnate who despite the fierce attacks could win recognition from political leaders in Washington and around the globe. His work and teachings had enormous impact on shaping our century. It is curious fact that not only followers of his church, but numerous prominent dignitaries and leaders believe that Rev. Moon is a messiah. They see in him the Peacemaker sent by God to complete Jesus's unfinished work of creating heaven on Earth. More and more famous religious leaders from other denomination join in supporting this view. And that is really a phenomenal historic precedent.

Anglican Priest, Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies, Rev. David A. Hart wrote: 

"Thank you, Rev. Moon, for your life of self-sacrifice and vision. In some sense, even we who are outside your membership as Ambassadors for Peace can salute you also as our "True Father," for you have contributed to the global vision of the earlier messiahs, and we salute your noble path and commit ourselves to follow in the future!" Rev. David A. Hart

And he is only one of the hundreds of thousands of priests and religious scholars who share that admiration of Rev. Moon's work and teachings.

Throughout the years numerous, so called 'experts', have predicted his demise and decline. Yet Rev. Moon's organizations and foundation grew to an unprecedented world level in less than 50 years. Some say that the ranks of the church's U.S. followers have thinned since the movement's heyday in the 1970s, but in fact today their children are more than the parents. They seem to be growing rapidly inside and outside. In recent articles 'The New Moons: The Second Generation', their children where described as bringing a new life in the Organization's work. At the same time a wave of thousands of newly Blessed Couples are joining them almost daily. Read, Building a Model Nation

It is Unificationist original believe that parents, not just leaders, can match their children to take part in the movement's extraordinary International mass weddings. And now we see even their grandchildren participating willingly in it. Worldwide, the core members of the church may be about 3 million (MBC found), but with the associates of their Peace organizations membership figures go way over 100 million. Those who received their Marriage Blessing, for example, are close to 400 million couples from around the world. They might not be core members of Rev. Moon's organizations, but they support the main vision for "World Peace through Ideal Families".
"Today our world needs drastic change in order to become God-centered. I came to call for that change. The Divine Principle will bring about a revolution of man. The power of this truth is touching millions of human lives and igniting hundreds of thousands of them. It will bring about the true, lasting unification of the family of man and the world." - Rev. Sun Myung Moon
In response to a list of Washington Post questions about the church and Moon-linked businesses, Cotter wrote: "Rev. Moon has inspired many activities and projects with the goal of promoting world peace. He and our Unification Church members in America and worldwide continue to pray for the success of these projects."

Dr. Moon is known also for investing into new and moral media. His News World Communications owns the Washington Times, the United Press International wire service and the Atlantic Video TV production facility.

Analysts have estimated that Moon had subsidized the Times by at least $3 billion since it was launched in 1982; yet the paper played key role in ending the Cold War. The role of Rev. Moon was crucial also in the peace talks with North Korea and in the Middle East. He is definitely a unique man, that invests billions in the effort of bringing World Peace. No wonder world presidents write with admiration about him:

"Rev. Moon is a teacher. But not only an ordinary teacher. Rev. Moon is a messenger. But not an ordinary messenger. The truth is that the Rev. Moon is a prophet of our time", says President Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia (1964-1991).

Founding President, James Mancham, Seychelles (1976-77), wrote: "Father Moon has created a global alliance of religious, academic, political, civic and business leaders to work together to promote global peace and create what he calls a unified world in which people live together in harmony, cooperation and co-prosperity."

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the Family Federation for World Peace
(FFWP) are the two most central organizations founded by Reverend Moon.

How He Does It
How could a single man accomplishes so much in so short of a time. Reverend Moon says that the most important thing is prayer. Before initiating a new area of work, Reverend Moon first invests many hours of study, research and reflection. Hes communication with God is the source of his power and success. Only through God's protection and guidance he could survive and strive in the worst of persecution and obstacles. Central to his vision, for establishing God's Peaceful World, is the core universal principle of living for the sake of others - the principle of true love. Yet, his ability to inspire others to dedicate with him to worthy causes is legendary. Working side by side with them from early morning until late at night, he challenges people to give their best by showing his own example. With this foundation, the work moves forward, builds momentum, and gains professionalism.
