The Bible,        A Unification Perspective

 

 

Introduction

Jesus said,

 
"I came to cast fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled".  Luke 12:49

  Understanding the Bible would be a simpler task if we could interpret every statement and every word literally. No conflicts in thought or doctrine would exist to divide the church as a whole. Our focus could be spent in simply living, loving and growing in the Word of God.

   From the words of Jesus in Luke 12:49 it's obvious that not everything he stated can be taken literally, since there is no record of Jesus starting literal fires as his main mission and focus.  Jesus was much more concerned with far more than just that. 

 This is just one of the many verses that challenge us to look for deeper and more profound meaning in the Bible. It is well known that Jesus spoke in symbol and parable and would even say, near the end of his life,

 "I still have many things to say to you, but you can not bear them now." John 16:12


   Exploring the hidden treasures and essential meaning of the Bible has been the quest of scholars and everyday  students of scripture throughout history. Emmanuel Swedenborg,  an 18th Century scientist and Bible scholar, referred to this as "understanding the arcana (inner meaning) of the Word." 

 
  As Unification Church members, we are publishing this site to offer our views and understanding of the Bible, it's meaning and message for us today.

 

   

 

 

 

  The founder of our church, Reverend Sun Myung Moon, at the age of 15 had experiences with Jesus that altered his life, and likewise, the lives of millions worldwide ever since.

  Through his communication with God, Jesus, and the Saints in Paradise, Rev. Moon has come to understand much of the untold stories of the Bible. Things that just could not have been revealed before today. What we have learned has compelled us into a new and sobering look into the deepest secrets of the Bible and life itself.  For me and many others it's been a profound honor and joy to have known Rev. Moon for so many years and through many hardships. 

   It's our hope that those who can study these pages with sincerity and an honest appreciation for the truth can likewise be moved and challenged to touch the heart of God. 

   This site is certainly a work in progress, and a labor of  love. But like anything that grows, it's part of the wonder of  life to watch its processes and surprises unfold. We hope you become a frequent visitor and friend. And through it  all, may God Bless you and those you love.
