    home, when Jesus appeared to him.

The image of Reverend Moon that is most deeply
engraved in my heart Is that of him kneeling in
prayer, with tears streaming down his face For
the suffering of God and the suffering of the
world. Chung Hwan Kwak Chairman of IIFWP
International and Early Follower

Crown of Glory
When I doubt people I feel pain. When I judge
people it is impossible. When I hate people,
there is no value in my life. Yet if I believe, I
am deceived. If I love, I am betrayed. Suffering
and grieving tonight, My head is in my hands am
I wrong?
7
Wipe away your tears and welcome with a
smile Those who know nothing but deceit and those
who betray without regret. When I loved those
who acted against me, I brought victory. If you
have done the same , I will give you the crown
of victory. Sun Myung Moon (Age 16)
8
History
  • From March 31, 1941 he attended a technical
    college affiliated with Waseda University
    inTokyo studying electrical engineering
  • Involved in underground freedom movement
  • Graduated Sept 18, 1943

9
History
  • In Nov. 1943, Sun-Myung Moon married.
  • According to custom, his bride, Choi Sun-Kil, was
    found through arrangement between the couple's
    parents.

10
History
  • In late November 1944, arrested in Seoul on
    suspicion of being a Communist.
  • The police beat him and began routine torture to
    force a confession. They held him down and poured
    water laced with red pepper down his nose. They
    pulled him up, tied his wrists behind his back,
    hoisted him in the air and thrashed him in a form
    of torture known as the aeroplane. He refused to
    inform and spent 60 days in gaol.

11
History
  • From 1945 - 48, Rev. Moon connected to
    spiritually prepared groups.
  • Around the end of 1945, he joined Kim Baek Moon's
    Israel Monastery, which had revelations about
    Christ's second coming and the restoration of the
    Garden of Eden.

12
History
  • On June 6 1946, Rev. Moon informed his wife that
    he was going to buy rice.
  • On the way, in prayer, he was directed to travel
    to Pyong Yang in search of other Christian
    Spiritual Groups.
  • Later his wife tried several times, with their
    baby, to come up to join him, but was stopped at
    the border by Communist soldiers.
  • It would be six years before they saw each other
    again.

13
History in Pyung Yang
  • Rev. Moon established a house-church group and
    began teaching the Divine Principle.
  • Members were deeply affected, spending many hours
    in passionate services and even refraining from
    sexual relations with their spouses.
  • Suspicious husbands accused the group of sexual
    immorality.
  • Rumours and complaints led to
  • his arrest on August 11th 1946.

14
History
  • Over several weeks his interrogators tried to get
    him to confess to being a spy for the American
    military government in South Korea. For several
    days during the interrogation, Rev. Moon was not
    given food and not allowed to sleep. He was also
    beaten savagely.
  • On Sept. 18 1946, when trying to contact the
    leader of a Christian group in the same prison,
    Rev. Moon was discovered and severely tortured.
  • On Oct 31 46 he was declared innocent and
    released. His followers were shocked when they
    found him. He had been thrown out into the yard,
    half dead from the beatings, his clothes were
    stuck to his body by clotted blood. As they took
    him home, he was vomiting so much blood that they
    thought he would die. There was talk of preparing
    a funeral.

15
History
  • Reverend Moon recovered with the care and prayers
    of followers and began preaching again.
  • The Communists made use of inter-religious and
    inter-denominational rivalries to attack
    religious groups.
  • By early 1948 the Communist authorities had
    received some eighty complaints from other
    Christians that Rev. Moon was swindling his
    followers, breaking up families and encouraging
    sexual immorality.
  • Reverend Moon was re-arrested.

16
History
  • We had only experienced his sweetness and
    warmth of love as a father embracing his
    children.
  • In the court room, however, we experienced
    another aspect of Reverend Moon which was
    courageous, determined, bold and fearless.
  • Won Pil Kim (Early follower)

17
  • He was condemned to five years forced labour on
    Feb. 22 1948 and, on May 20, transferred to a
    labour camp beside the village of Dong-ri near
    the East coast industrial city of Hungnam.

18
  • I never prayed from weakness. I never asked for
    help.
  • How could I tell God, my Father, about my
    suffering and cause his heart to grieve still
    more?
  • I could only tell him that I would never be
    defeated by my suffering.

19
After two weeks I was feeble .... I was so hungry
I could not sleep..... Many times I thought of
stealing rice powder from others ... Teacher Moon
always shared his. One night an old man appeared
to me in a dream and clearly told me That
young man is the one you have been looking for
since your childhood. Two days later Teacher Moon
turned to me and said Did you have a dream two
nights ago? I was shocked.

History
  • The file of prisoners was led to a mountain of
    ammonium sulphate which had solidified and had to
    be broken up and bagged in forty kilogram sacks.
    The work would keep them busy for over two years.

22
History
  • Each ten-man team had to load 700 bags in an 8
    hour working day.
  • Supper was a handful of boiled grain and salty
    soup.
  • The skin of their fingertips peeled off from
    exposure to the fertilizer.
  • People died even while eating.

23
History
  • Oct. 14 1950, they were released after the U.S.
    Navy bombarded the city.
  • During the 10 day journey to Pyong Yang Rev. Moon
    lived by eating rotten crops, saving a little bag
    of rice flour as a gift to his followers on his
    arrival.

24
History
  • Rev. Moon spent 40 days in Pyong Yang to let his
    followers know he had been freed.
  • Then, with a young follower and a former
    prisoner who had a broken leg, he left for the
    South.
  • After an arduous and dangerous trip he arrived in
    Pusan, South Korea, on January 27, 1951.

During those early days, Reverend Moon always
seemed to be weeping. Every morning and night he
would pray in tears, often for hours at a
time. He would pray for each individual member
three times a day. Kim Won Pil
30
History
  • Reverend Moons wife, Choi Sun Kil, finally found
    him in Pusan in November 1952.
  • He was devoting himself to his religious
    followers and they were too immature to
    understand his personal situation such that his
    wife was not able to have time alone with him.
    She resented his followers and could not
    understand his relentless sense of mission.
  • Reverend Moon persevered in this painful
    situation but when he moved to Seoul in 1953 his
    wife remained in Pusan. Under pressure from her
    family she later took out divorce proceedings.

  • For forty years I have been opposed to Marxism.
    It is not because I hate Karl Marx. Karl Marx was
    right to decry human exploitation, but at the
    same time Maxism asserts there is no God .. My
    vivid spiritual experience has shown me that God
    exists, and there is nothing more important than
    finding and knowing His heart.
