Members and ex-members report that there is an incredible
discrepancy between Moon’s teaching and his deeds. See http://howwelldoyouknowyourmoo...
It is estimated that since 1997 more than half of the
members of Moon’s movement left.
It is a painful experience for idealistic members to be desillusioned by a fake Messiah.
As its your gut feeling, Rev. Sun Myung Moon did not take it easy... God bless you and guide as you continue in your search for meaning in your life and what you do everyday...
I never find the reply button beneath your comment ooikesp.
Anyway, thanks for your honest reply: No I chose not to read her book because it was her response and reaction.But you chose to listen to the member who first witnessed to you,you listened to the lecturer who taught the Divine Principle,you believed in the testimonies about Sun Myung Moon,you believed in Sun Myung Moon.All these were responses and reactions which were not your own.So, why not give Nansook Hong's book a chance. You believe in God and his truth, so you need not to fear anything, right?
Have you read Nan Sook Hong's book "In the shadows of the Moons"? You should and then pray about it. For me it was the starting point of starting to see a reality I had not expected...
I was a church member for 20 years, I know very well what I am talking about. Just think about Dae Mo Nim, how can heaven be paid for? Open your eyes...Moon didn't learn from the abusive medieval catholic indulgence practice.
