Except for pages 239-244, the translation of this chapter from the Japanese has not yet been re-done. Up to half of the content is missing. The list of 36 couples has been updated based on information from Eu Hyo-min. All the photos from the book, and some additional ones, are here. Some information has been added.

The Use of a Living Witness
Married again to go to the new world 216
I could only just survive in that temporary accommodation in front of the Seoul station. The person who saved me at that time was Aum Deok-moon. With his help, I went to Busan to do construction work. He was one of the greatest architects in the world. He had graduated from Waseda University in Japan.
I was still waiting for Mr. Moon to contact me. Even after three years he had not contacted me. I knew that Mr. Moon was a secular man like the rest of us. In the corner of my mind, I was hoping for a reply. I still believed in the promise that we had made together in prison.
Finally I decided that my 14 year-long connection with Mr. Moon should end. I married the sister of Aum Deok-moon. Her husband had been a prosecutor, but he had been killed during the Korean War. She had three children. I started a new life for the third time.
The first time was in North Korea, and the second time was in the Unification Church. Now I am 45 and my new wife is 37. For ten years I focused on my work in the housing business in Busan. I successfully completed 300 house and apartment projects.
For the next ten years I did landfill work asked by a member of the church. The civil engineering was my major and I was good at it. We had many occasions of drinking party after work. But that was the problem.
Collapsed with a serious illness 217
In 1981, I fell because of a cerebral hemorrhage and was hospitalized for about two months. Aum Duk-moon’s wife and his sister told me that I had to go back to the Unification Church, saying that I and Mr. Moon had a deep relationship. They also said that the reason for my illness was that I had left the church.
I was in a state of mental weakness at that time. Maybe my faith in God weakened too. I went to the hill behind my house and started a three month prayer. I prayed about my life. Was it right or wrong? How can I live my life with this emaciated body? I had enough free time because I had retired from the frontline of the business. I was also curious about the Unification Church.
I visited a branch of the Unification Church near my house. I thought that I could guide them in a right direction when I had a chance. The pastor in Incheon church was Moon Heung-kwon. One day a middle-aged woman came and asked me whether I knew her. At the moment I couldn’t remember her. And she said that she was the daughter of Mrs. Ryu from Daegu. She was a devout believer and was now the wife of the pastor Moon.
In 1983, I and some old members visited sacred places. I was 70 but I joined in with the group. We had a good time talking about the past 20 years. When we came back, I got a call from the headquarters that they wanted to see me.
I met a church elder who I hadn’t seen for a long time 219
At a coffee shop at the Grand Hotel in Namdaemun, I met Kim In-chul who was then the chairman of the anti-communism association and some other members. The reason for their calling me was to prevent the action of Kim Deok-jin. They said I was the only one who could persuade him.
At that time Pastor Kim was very earnestly preaching to suspects in jail – or to their victims. As I said before, Kim was good at music and had earlier composed about 20 hymns for the church. Later Eu Hyo-min used those songs and sold tens of thousands of copies in many countries without putting his name on them. To get his royalties, Kim was going to sue the church.
Pastor Kim was said to have the pikareum return ritual with Eu Shin-hee and many other women after that. He was planning to publish a book about the pikareum return ritual based on his experience. While he was preparing for his lawsuit with his lawyer, they called me to get help. I could understand his feelings, but I persuaded Kim to stop the lawsuit, saying that he could file it anytime. Finally he gave up on the lawsuit. Then Ahn Byung-il and Kim In-chul asked me to stay in the headquarters in Seoul instead of Incheon. And I started attending the headquarters for three years.
A living witness to the founding of the Unification Church 221
The headquarters tried to give me a position that was suitable for the oldest member but I rejected it. As a member of foundation, I just wanted to do my work for the sound development of the church. It was like the feeling of parents towards their children. From 1981 I actively participated in the church for five years. I prayed from the bottom of my heart.
The church advertised that ‘Pak Chung-hwa is a living witness who had overcome hardship with the messiah.’ And I was asked to attend many lectures. I even went to Japan to give about 40 lectures in front of 5,000 people. But my testimony was limited to our refugee journey to South. Their purpose was to advertise Mr. Moon’s hardship during that time.
My mind was very complicated but I told people based on truth. I loved devout believers of the church. Even the top people are corrupt, most general believers are sincere and innocent. Meeting them was my pleasure and joy at that time.
On July 8th, 1985, I was asked to do a replay of the refugee journey by theology school presidents to depict the refugee way with Mr. Moon. After having lunch at the Imjin River, I walked 18 km with them even with my emaciated body. My feet got swollen and I had to see a doctor. Because of the long walk at the age of 74, my ankle got swollen. The doctor told me that it could be dangerous if the poison spread. The expense of treatment was very high, and it was a big burden for me.
I talked to the school president, but he gave me no answer. I had to use my emergency savings. It cost me about $1,000. I asked the president of school pastor Lee Yo-han to reimburse some money, but I was rejected coldly again. That reminded me of Mr. Moon’s previous behavior when he used people and deserted them.
Sun Myung Moon’s lies and the Japanese members 223
One day in 1983, the international department of the church contacted me. They asked me to stop by because they had some questions to ask. They showed me a picture in the The Daily Central newspaper. It was a picture of a man carrying another man on his back, and they were crossing a river. They asked me whether it was a picture of Mr. Moon carrying me on his back. I answered them that we had no chance to take any pictures at that time. I never crossed any river on Mr. Moon’s back. They said nothing and I thought that was the end of it.
[This same photograph was seen at an exhibition in Seoul. It had this caption: “A Korean refugee carries his aged father across the icy Han River at Chungju in their flight south to escape the onrushing Chinese Communist Forces. Photo taken on January 14, 1951 by US Army Cpl. J. J. McGinty.”]
When I went to Japan in May, I found the picture enlarged and hung on the wall of an exhibition site. People came to me to have a picture taken with me. They said that the picture was taken when Mr. Moon was carrying me on his back, and we were crossing a river. They asked me to tell them the story in detail.
If I had told them the truth, it would have made Mr. Moon a liar. So I had to lie to them. The Japanese family seemed to be touched, but inside I felt guilty. The same picture was printed in another newspaper, and this time the picture was clearer. The people in the picture were not Mr. Moon and I. That was one of the church’s typical ways to deceive people.
Stealing the Principles from Mr. Kim Baek-moon 226
After I went to the headquarters, I could have a chance to meet old members. Some of them withdrew and others were still there. Old women were poor. They had lost their bodies and their money to Mr. Moon and are now living deploring Mr. Moon and even God. The church seemed to expand strong superficially but it produced a lot of scandals in Japan and America related to money.
On July 20th, 1984, Mr. Moon was sent to prison [in the US] on a charge of tax evasion. A Japanese aide [Takeru Kamiyama] who was also imprisoned with Mr. Moon for five months. He said that Mr. Moon’s behavior in the prison was respectable. That was his third time in prison and he must be good at it.
Except the incident of tax evasion in America, Mr. Moon had a scandal of real estate acquisition. Mr. Moon was released after a year and he keeps saying that he was innocent. He had a big party to celebrate his release. Mr. Moon’s doctrine of creation, corruption, and pikareum return was not his idea.
He stole the doctrines of Kim Baek-moon. His scribbled notes were rewritten by Eu Hyo-min. The doctrine of the Unification Church originally belongs to the deceased Eu Hyo-won. Even though Mr. Moon had received a lot of benefit from Eu Hyo-won, he ultimately pushed him to death. If you read 聖神神学 ‘Theology of the Holy Spirit’ (1954) and 基督教根本原理 ‘Fundamental Christian Principles’ (1958) by Kim Baek-moon, you will see my point.
Allegations of a marriage between a [half] brother and a [half] sister 228
There is an unforgettable incident. One day a family of Byung Ho Song called me that he was hospitalized in the hospital in Busan. And he wanted to see me. He was in a critical situation. I wanted to go there but I was ill in bed too. I told them to wait for a few days but I got the news of his death after three days. Song had talked to me about Mr. Moon several times before. He told me about the incest in Moon’ family. And I persuaded him there must have been mistake.
I introduced Song to Mr. Moon when we were in Busan. He had worked for the Customs Office in Busan. He once loaned me a substantial amount of money when we printed the book of doctrines. He had been a devout believer for a while but he withdrew from the church after finding out the reality of Mr. Moon. Song told me that it was true. Then it must be true. And I had no evidence to refute it.
Kim Deok-jin practised the principle 230
The thing I have to record regarding the pikareum return ritual is Kim Deok-jin. When I was in the mine, Kim was ordered by Mr. Moon to stay with me. He was an artist who was good at music and very honest. I asked him the reason for his coming to the mine. He said that he practiced the pikareum return ritual as he was taught by Mr. Moon.
He received the pikareum return ritual by Eu Shin-hee three times who got it by Mr. Moon before. After that he practiced the pikareum return ritual with five women at Soon Tae Um’s house. And the women practiced with other men and the total surpassed 70 people in a week. And the news of the sex festival under the name of pikareum return was delivered to Mr. Moon and Eu Hyo-won. And Kim was expelled from Seoul.
Kim would not go to the mine but he stayed at home composing music. When I asked him what happened, he said that he just followed the doctrine. And I told him you did nothing wrong. He stayed with me for two years. When Mr. Moon stopped sending money to the mine, Kim went to Seoul again to practice the pikareum return ritual. And I persuaded him to come to Daegu and made him marry his current wife.
He just followed Mr. Moon’s doctrine. What did he do wrong? Mr. Moon has destroyed a lot of families and Kim just followed Mr. Moon’s way. And Mr. Moon had him locked in a remote mine. I could not understand it but I could do nothing about it then.
The Role of the 36 Couples
Countermeasures against the ‘Messiah of the Second Coming’ 233
In retrospect, the idea was that the women who received Mr. Moon’s pikareum return ritual would then perform the pikareum return with other men. These men would then do the pikareum with other women, and in this way the world would be made clean again. The world would be restored.
▲ The mother-of-the-bride, Hong Soon-ae, giving a testimony about her daughter’s youth after the marriage of Teacher Moon and Han Hak Ja (the Marriage Supper of the Lamb).
This is the caption in the Korean edition of the book, which was published by Eu Hyo-min who probably took the photograph. Here is the erroneous caption from the Japanese edition: Sun Myung Moon and the members seriously considering the matching of the 36 couples at the Cheongpa-dong Church in Seoul.
During this time, many other messiahs appeared saying that Mr. Moon was a fake. Many people followed them. So Mr. Moon took the step to form the 36 Blessed couples. Mr. Moon’s idea was that only the 36 couples could have the pikareum return ritual since all the people in the world could not be restored in that way. Then the joint marriage of the 36 couples could replace the pikareum restoration ritual.
Then why did it have to be 36 couples? Mr. Moon asserted that 12 branches from the Old Testament, 12 disciples from the New Testament, and 12 disciples of Mr. Moon’s own new teachings made 36. The 36 brides must have completed the pikareum return ritual with Mr. Moon. The pikareum ritual means sexual intercourse as you know. The purpose is to achieve an exchange of blood. The mission that the second Adam could not achieve must be done by the third Adam.
When the messiah has sex with six Marys and the 36 brides, the defiled blood can be purified. This is the exchange of blood or pikareum. The cleansing of sin. The children from the 36 couples would then be sinless, they would begin a new restored world.
Now Mr. Moon uses holy water to replace the pikareum return ritual, but the three times sex is still used in the Three Day Ceremony. In Japan, the pikareum exchange of blood is mistakenly understood as sharing blood. But it is not true.
The 36 couples are considered to be sacred families and respected by all members of the church. When an important thing needs to be done, the 36 blessed couples are appointed to deal with it.
Five of the 36 couples lost their spouses, and nine couples left the church. These 14 families say that there is something wrong with Mr. Moon’s teachings. How can Mr. Moon explain the 14 families that are now against his doctrine of creation? The concept of the 36 blessed couples is fundamentally wrong.

▲ After the final ceremony for the marriage of the 36 couples, there was a public procession of the couples in cars through the streets of Seoul. Mr. Moon always sought maximum publicity from the mass marriages he held.
The list of the 36 couples is exactly as it appears in Mr. Pak’s book. Much of the Japanese text about the couples has yet to be translated. Some of the following explanatory information is not in his book. Some of Mr Moon’s quotes about the couples have been included.
This list should be an accurate list of the original 36 couples who were married by Mr. Moon. During 1960-1961 he held three ceremonies. He then put all the couples together as one group which became known as ‘the 36 couples.’ When some defected they were replaced by couples from the 72 couples group or others. For example Mr. Moon said: “No one knows, if Seuk Joon-ho [Dr. Seuk, the son of Mrs. Choi Won-bok] enters the 36 couples…” January 2, 1997, São Paulo, Brazil

Some wives names have been added from the list in the Korean edition of this book which was published in March 1996 by Eu Hyo-min who was originally in the 72 couples, but was promoted to the 36 couples.
▲ Here are 12 of the Ewha Womans University students who were expelled because of the“scandalous rites” of the Unification Church. After their expulsion, the students managed to meet President Kim Hwallan on May 23, 1955. She stood by her decision. This picture was taken on campus after the meeting.

*** Her name may be 朴承姫 Park Seung-hee and not 林 Yim or Lim Seung-hee.
Kim Yun-rye was also expelled but later made a pledge to give up the Unification Church, and Ewha Womans University allowed her to return to her studies.
Eight of the expelled students entered other universities in 1956.
Ewha in the list above = Ewha Womans University students
These ten women joined as students during the Ewha University Sex Scandal of 1955. There were other students who joined, but they were not included in the 36 couples marriage, which took place in stages during 1960-1961.
The Hongs (couple 16) left in the 1990s. They are the parents of Nansook Hong. Her brother was married to Ye Jin Moon. He left before Nansook – and he helped Nansook to escape the East Garden compound.
Mr. Moon bought a house for each of the 36 couples. Apparently, because Korea is a ‘low-trust’ nation, this was one way of trying to ensure their loyalty.
Mr. Moon: “In Korea I bought houses for many early members of our Church and in the future I would like to take the responsibility of buying houses for all the black, white and yellow people. I am the only one in history who is doing this, but it isn’t easy.”
October 3, 1976 Belvedere, New York. Translator: Pak Bo Hi.
The 36 couples were the first of two or three “Royal Blessings.” They definitely included the 36 and 72 couples and may have included the 124 couples. The wives from the “Royal Blessings” were all ‘purified’ by Mr. Moon. The “Royal Couples” were also known as Mr. Moon’s “Tribe.” More is explained in this Shūkan Post October 15, 1993 magazine article, published at the same time as Mr. Pak’s book.
Some of the 36 couples became quite wealthy and lived in expensive properties. Some had Japanese members helping in their homes.
Mr. Moon kept many of the 36 couples separated from their spouses for many years. This caused some couples great heartache – for example Kim Won-pil was one who longed to be with his wife. It caused complications in other couples.
It is a fact that the 36 couples all had ‘womb cleansing’ pikareum sex rituals with Mr. Moon. The theology was explained to Japanese members in the early 1990s by Mr. Yoshiaki Hiro, Mr. Kunio Sano and Mr. Yasutomo Shirai. (Mr Takeru Kamiyama was to be the main lecturer, but he was in hospital with stomach problems.) There had also been lectures about Moon’s pikareum theology given in Japan in the 1980s by a lecturer called Ota.
Here are some further quotes from Mr. Moon about the 36 couples:
“I have received many such certificates from Satan. One of the most dramatic was during the Blessing of the 36 couples. Incredible controversy erupted at that time; people were praying to God, ‘Please don’t let Reverend Moon take my son away. Let him die tonight instead.’ … At the time of the 36 couple Blessing, the entire nation of Korea opposed me. I was a villain in the eyes of the country.”
December 27, 1981, Belvedere, New York.
“This is the first group of people I blessed. These cover every facet of our society every group of society so for everyone who accepts the principle there is room to go to heaven. They have their own ladder to climb up. They have their own channel. Do you understand? I want you to understand that I opened 36 doors so that every person here on earth has one door to get into. No opportunity is lost, there is always a door open for everyone out there, once they accept and repent they can go through one door which is the mercy of God.”
May 20, 1978, London.
“All women’s love should unite with me. The 36 couples should not think about their own family, but how to save the nation.”

Taught at a Family Federation for World Peace and Unification workshop:
“The Purpose of God’s Providence of Salvation is to end the journey of God’s sperm.”
❖ This marks the end of the added section.
The contributors who became victims 238
If Mr. Moon had been the real messiah, he should have helped Ok Se-hyun who had knitted socks for him with her hair. How come he did not help her? She is now 96 and spent her whole life to support him. She is living in a small rented room. Let’s see Park Bong-shik who was elder Song’s wife. Since Mr. Moon had Song marry Oh Yeong-choon, she became alone. After her husband died, she had to live in the church. But she was expelled from the church because she was too old.
How come Mr. Moon deserted such women who had devoted their lives to him? He just took advantage of such women and deserted them when they became useless. It is not written in the doctrine. This is not the case of women. He lied about me whom had devoted my life to him for a long time. And he is insisting that I am the betrayer. And I am writing this book to let the world know the truth.
Eu Hyo-won was a more moral person than Sun Myung Moon 239
❖ Photo added
Next, I want to clarify about Mr. Eu Hyo-won. Sun Myung Moon wrote the “Original Principle” [in two note books in Busan]. Based on this, Mr Eu completed the “Commentary on the Principle,” [which was published in 1957.] On this foundation all members of the Unification Church were able to teach and spread the principle teachings.
Eu Hyo-won [was loyal and worked tirelessly night and day]. He played a role in the matching of the 36 Blessed Couples. He invested a lot of effort in considering each combination.
❖ Quote and photo added:
Sun Myung Moon: “When our church was just starting, for three years and eight months, President Eu Hyo-won lectured eighteen hours a day at Cheongpa-dong even though his health was very poor. I’m telling you that I had a sickly man continue to lecture for forty-four months, eighteen hours a day. It set a tradition and that’s why we lectured for two days, finishing both parts [of the Divine Principle] in two days.
It must have been very hard. As the lecturer, he may have felt pain in his lungs and in other parts of his body, but when he was not lecturing Divine Principle, I would say, “Hey! You are a trumpeter of Heaven’s will; you have to lecture if asked, even for eighteen hours. The spirit world is preparing to speak now. How can you possibly be like this? Get to work!” We did things in that way for all those months. It’s a record.”
Eu Hyo-won had been a student in the medical department at the Keijō Imperial University [in Seoul which had closed in 1946]. Consequently he knew about his disease in detail, even though he was the patient.
At the time he was suffering from joint pain caused by tuberculous osteoarthritis. [Note: That is joint and bone TB, which can affect the weight-bearing joints in the hip or the knee]. He was in a considerably weakened state and knew [the probability that his hip joints may no longer function after an operation]. He was aware that he would die if he underwent surgery.
However, Sun Myung Moon, who knew the possible outcome, ordered him to have an operation, saying it was God’s command. At that time, Sun Myung Moon said, “Nevertheless, if you refuse to have surgery, you will be going against the command of God.”
Eu Hyo-won begged not to be forced to have an operation. He said, “I keep alive by giving myself injections. What should I do?” But Mr. Eu felt he could not defy Sun Myung Moon [who had told Mr Eu that he represented the archangel], and so he went ahead and had the surgery, and sure enough he died.
At the time people commented about Sun Myung Moon’s outrageous behavior, and even some of the insiders said, “it was indirect murder.”
Eu Hyo-won was clever and had a good personality and was very popular with the members. [From the Korean edition: Sun Myung Moon had ordered him to complete many secret missions. Perhaps Sun Myung Moon got rid of him because he knew too much.] He could rely on Eu Hyo-won – but he was also the most dangerous threat to Sun Myung Moon.
Even then, isn’t what Sun Myung Moon said irreverent and outrageous?
In addition, one of the top leaders who were in the United States at that time told me that, “I heard a story from someone who receives divine revelations about Lee Gi-seok and Park Chong-ku, who were both members of the 36 Blessed Couples. (They had both by that time passed away.) Apparently, they were sitting in a very good place in the spirit world, but Eu Hyo-won was sitting in the lowest place.”
And furthermore he published this story in the “The Unification World” magazine and announced this at the Cheongpyeong Prayer Center. It can only be said that it was a really cruel way to treat a person [who had died].
Eu Hyo-won was the greatest and most honorable worker in the Unification Church. He should not have been bullied and whipped even after his death.
❖ Two quotes and photo added
Pastor Kim Deok-jin spoke firmly as follows, “What do the newcomers to the church know? In 1970, Mr. Eu Hyo-won , who was one of the major leaders died in a hospital in Seoul. I happened to meet him by chance in the hallway of that hospital one week before he passed away, and spoke with him in his hospital room. It was a hot day. We talked about Sun Myung Moon and shed tears together.”
“After Mr. Eu Hyo-won’s passing, his younger [cousin Eu Hyo-min left in 1972, and Hyo-min’s sister, Eu Shin-hee,] left the Unification Church because Eu Hyo-won had told them the real story of Sun Myung Moon. I am not lying, or trying to deceive anyone in my testimony.” [Eu Hyo-won’s brother, Eu Hyo-yeong, left in 1992.] LINK
Eu Shin-hee: “One day my cousin Eu Hyo-won was giving a sincere lecture about the teachings to his audience, giving it with sweat and passion; meanwhile Sun Myung Moon was flirting with the women. So Eu Hyo-won was more popular and respected by the female members. I think my cousin, Hyo-won, thought he could have lived longer if he had not been operated on. Since Hyo-won had studied medicine at university, he knew his condition well and that he might die if he had the surgery. He hated the idea and refused the operation.
However, Sun Myung Moon was afraid because people were saying “if he is the real messiah, he should be able to cure any disease.” It is a fact that there were such voices. So Hyo-won was reluctantly forced to have the operation, and he died. Since Eu Hyo-won was loved by many people, Moon’s worry about being deprived of a seat at the top was gone. Moon must certainly have felt relieved.” LINK
Eu Hyo-min, an entrepreneur who built the church finances 241
I want to explain about Eu Hyo-min. He was another person who contributed to the development of the Unification Church. In the early years the economic circumstances were extremely difficult. At the time Eu Hyo-min had the idea of making and selling bromide photographs to sustain the lives of the members.
In addition, he invented an air rifle “which could use buckshot” (see Chapter 7). It was decided to build an economic foundation for the Unification Church by manufacturing and selling the gun. This gradually developed and the “Tong-il Industrial Co., Ltd.” was established. Kim In-chul was appointed as the representative director. Eu Hyo-min was only given the position of assembly manager. [Eu Hyo-min said he “was not eligible to hold a firearm manufacturing permit” because he had a criminal record following the Ewha University sex scandal of 1955 when he had been jailed.]
However, Eu Hyo-min, who was the most important contributor, was given only a thousand shares, and the patent for the invention of air gun was put in the name of Sun Myung Moon. After Eu Hyo-min left the job of manager to his successor, Baek Gu-pyeon, he was in charge of out-sourcing at the Yehwa (예화) air-gun factory at Eulji-no.
❖ Photo added:
Eu Hyo-min had to submit all his receipts to the company for every single thing he spent, down to 30 won for a cup of tea. He was under serious surveillance, which must have been on Sun Myung Moon’s instructions. It may have been a plan in preparation for driving him out of the Unification Church at a later date, just as had happened to me.
Finally, Eu Hyo-min broke with the Unification Church and left in 1972.
After I, Pak Chung-hwa, left, Eu Hyo-min became the secretary to Sun Myung Moon. He was the second person after me to leave the church after having worked very hard like Moon’s shadow.
I, Pak Chung-hwa, was the very first secretary, and was betrayed by Sun Myung Moon in this way. Eu Hyo-min was the second secretary who left because his life became too difficult, and Song Do-wook, the third secretary, and Eu Hyo-won, who gave distinguished service to the church with his wisdom, have both died. It is thought-provoking to look at these facts and consider if this was the plan of God, or the plan of Sun Myung Moon.
The time from 1953, when I was with Sun Myung Moon, until I went to the Seojin mine in 1956 was when we faced the hardest time in the development of the Unification Church. Back then there were no relatives of Sun Myung Moon in the church organization. Later Moon Seong-kyun, Moon Yong-seon [and Moon Seung-ryong] came in, and as the economic foundation of the Unification Church grew, almost all of the management positions came to be held by relatives of Sun Myung Moon.
In fact, it is Sun Myung Moon himself who knows best that he himself is not the second coming messiah. I came to think that he was implementing a plan to secure his future life base by handing the assets of Unification Church to his relatives whom he could trust. (See Chapter 7)
Eu Hyo-yeong exported miniature two-story pagodas 243

The Dabo Pagoda, also known as the pagoda of many treasures, is located in the Bulguksa temple. From entering the temple through the Cheongun and Baegun Bridge, Dabotap is located on the right side, opposite the Seokgatap pagoda on the left. The pagoda was probably built in 751, the 10th year of the Shilla king Gyeongdeok. It is currently designated as Korean National Treasure no. 20.
The two pagodas reflect a story in the Lotus Sutra. This pagoda represents the Dabo Buddha, and the Seokgatap pagoda represents Sakyamuni. Dabo represents the objective truth, while Sakyamuni represents the subjective wisdom to realize it. Dabotap is highly decorative and looks feminine, whereas Seokgatap is simplified and looks more masculine. The sophisticated Dabotap symbolizes the complexity of the world; the simple Seokgatap represents the brevity of spiritual ascent. (from Fascinating Tales of Blooming Silla by Alexander Chang and Andrew Chang, 2006).
The Unification Church, claiming to be Christian, is selling Buddhist items. The fraud of this group, just using “religion” as a tool, is again exposed. The photograph below is of the pagoda at the Nichiren Shogo and Madonoji Temple in Miyazu City, Kyoto. This was constructed in 1984 by duplicating one of the pagodas at the Bulguksa Temple in Korea. The work was done by Unification Church companies from Korea (Happy World, Kogyo Construction and Il-shin Stone Companies). In the early 1990s it was revealed that victims who purchased the pagodas were invited to do a “Tour of Maso-ji Temple” in order to promote the spiritual sales scam in Japan.
At one time, I met Eu Hyo-yeong, President of Il-shin Stone Co. Ltd., for a meal. (He left the Unification Church in 1992.) While we were eating, he told me a story.
In his account Eu Hyo-yeong said that at the Il-shin Stone Co. Ltd., which he managed, he had done research. As a result, he was able to produce miniature pagodas, which were reduced to 16/100 of the original size. They were sold in Japan with unexpectedly good results. The value of the exports was about 2 billion yen per month.
However, Moon Seong-yong (from one of the six villages where Sun Myung Moon came from) wanted this harvest. He demanded to divide the company and to hijack and manage the manufacturing of the miniature temples division, and pass on only the remainder to President Eu Hyo-yeong.
Eu Hyo-yeong said, “The revenue of the miniature temples manufacturing division accounted for 95 percent of the entire company and all the other businesses only amounted to the remaining 5 percent. Nevertheless he wanted to pass on to me, who had worked so hard, just 5 percent while Moon Seong-yong wanted to grab 95 percent.”
This is an outrageous idea. Il-shin Stone was the company where Eu Hyo-yeong worked as the president, a carpenter, a worker, and even a cleaner to grow the company.
Eu Hyo-yeong was very angry and said, “It is ridiculous that people who have no relationship with the company are jumping in and are trying to take over.
When I heard this story I thought about the era [in the church when things had been developing] in Busan, Daegu and Seoul, and about incarceration in North Korea. Back then I considered Sun Myung Moon the Lord of the Second Advent, and we were desperate to hear the principles and to gather new members.
Together with these families we worked hard everyday to build a new world based on the principles. The women did not think about property and they were not jealous; they were thoroughly dedicated to the principles. They did not think about themselves or their desires, and abandoned their families. From morning to night they had prayed and strived for the attainment of the principle.
The fraud and crime of Sun Myung Moon 245
The hard time passed and Mr. Moon’s relatives began to come to Mr. Moon when we became economically stable. Now the church is the world of the Moons. Mr. Moon attempted to purchase real estate secretly in the name of Park and his illegal purchase was revealed when a substantial amount of tax was imposed.
Can the real messiah do such a thing? Mr. Moon’s imprisonment in America has been fabricated that Mr. Moon was innocent. Any profitable business is taken away by the Moons. Mr. Moon’s organization is not a religious one. What happened to his doctrine and ideal world?
The voice of Mr. Moon’s asking more donations to the world is still ringing. In Japan, the activity of collecting money became a serious social issue. It is the damage done by the Moons. Mr. Moon had seduced women saying that illegal activity in the Satan world can be forgiven by God. Mr. Moon said that we had to take all the money from Japan because Korea was taken away by Japan before. We have to realize his idea world is illusion.
What on earth is the Unification Church? Is it a church or a corporation that seeks profit only? What is Mr. Moon’s intention? What happens to his doctrine?
If you say that the actions of Sun Myung Moon to restore women are in accordance with the principle, aren’t six Marys enough to comply with the principle? It is unforgivable to rob the chastity of the Six Marys, commit pikareum with countless women under the pretext of restoration, and to exploit their property.
The virgin, Choi Soon-shil, was selected as the best candidate to be Mr. Moon’s bride, the future True Mother. Mr. Moon had pikareum with the virgin Choi Soon-shil at the inn near the Seoul train Station, with Kim Soon-cheol complicit as a witness. This poor virgin was presented with a gold ring as evidence of her restoration.
Using the same excuse, Mr. Moon had sex with the virgin Kim Myung-hee. He made her pregnant and destroyed her life as a university student.
Aren’t these major crimes committed by Sun Myung Moon, the self-proclaimed Second Coming Messiah – and a serious problem for Unification Church?
The Unification Church must think about the tears and pain of Mr. Moon’s victims, and the suffering of their families.
The misery of Kim Myung-hee 247
Kim Myung-hee was an excellent student at Yonsei University but Mr. Moon made her pregnant. Being afraid of her pregnancy, Mr. Moon smuggled her to Japan [by boat from Busan] with another male student, Oh Seung-taek, [also from Yonsei University]. She gave birth to a baby under very difficult conditions [in Tokyo]. It is said that Oh Seung-taek had to cut the umbilical cord with his teeth.
After they spent their little money, they could not live there. And Oh Seung-taek smuggled back to Korea to ask money from Mr. Moon. When Oh met Mr. Moon, he definitely refused to help him. I have never heard such a cruel story. How could he do that to his baby son?
❖ In the book only a small section of this photo was used.
▲ Two alias names are given in the book caption.
[They are Kim Myung-hee (left) and Choi Soon-wha (right). They both had illegitimate sons with Sun Myung Moon. Kim Myung-hee gave birth to Moon Hee-jin in August 1955 and Choi Soon-wha gave birth to Sam Park in Washington, DC, in January 1966.]
If he was the messiah, this act of his was despicable. He should have taken responsibility for them. Oh Seung-taek was very angry at Mr. Moon, and parted from Mr. Moon forever. Mr. Moon had said to Oh “I don’t have any money and you have to take care of yourselves.”
I was with Mr. Moon at that time. When Mr. Moon rejected Oh’s request, Oh said to Mr. Moon “You are the Satan. You remember that.” Then he left the place, slamming the door. As a member of the church, Oh Seung-taek took responsibility of taking care of Kim Myung-hee because it was for the sake of the church. There were about seven or eight people who witnessed this, but no one said anything about it. I feel guilty about that.
Kim Myung-hee was waiting for Oh Seung-taek with her baby (Hee-jin Moon) expecting that he would bring money. When Kim Myung-hee and her baby were found in the Omura detention center by a Korean named Hwang, they could come back to Korea. Kim Myung-hee was held in the center for three months because she had no money and passport.
After they came back, Mr. Moon had to register the baby as his child. The baby was raised by Hwang’s wife, but later died in a train accident. Mr. Moon explained the death by saying that the child went to heaven to build the world of spirit.
In the name of the lamb feast, Mr. Moon made many young women pregnant. How can he be forgiven by God?
Another “mother” 250
There are more to tell. It was the case of Choi Won-bok. I met her when Mr. Moon was arrested for the 7.4 incident. [The incident was the Ewha Womans University sex scandal of 1955 when Mr. Moon was arrested on July 4th]. Choi Won-bok was really worried about Mr. Moon. She was sorry that she could not help us. She already quit her professorship and became a member of the church. I didn’t know why, but members called her mother. According to Mr. Moon’s doctrine, the mother was his wife Han Hak-ja. She was also called ‘mother’ because Mr. Moon loved her very much. It is against his doctrine.
❖ Photo added:
Han Hak-ja’s mother, Hong Soon-ae, later called her Mr. Moon’s concubine. And she later came back to Korea as the principal of Sunhwa Art School. The school was run by Pak Bo Hi’s brother and she was a powerless principal. Mr. Moon has preached his doctrines saying that he was the messiah, but his behavior was the one of an ordinary secular man. Finally, I am now going to add one of my experiences.
My shame for participating in orgies 252
In Chapter Three, I wrote, “Sun Myung Moon told me to take the test of the will of heaven that Kim Soon-cheol made. After looking at the problem, I wrote the answer, and Mr. Moon said, “OK, you have passed.” In fact, I was ordered to have sex with Kim Soon-cheol, one of Six Marys, in front of Mr. Moon. Actually, I had already practiced the pikareum return ritual with one of the Six Marys who had been restored by Sun Myung Moon, so I was a qualified person according to the principles of Mr. Moon. However, he urged me to have sex with Kim Soon-cheol. I had no choice but to obey the Messiah’s orders, and I had sex with Kim Soon-cheol on the spot in front of him and “passed” the test.
As I said earlier, Kim Soon-cheol was being chased by her husband because she secretly took a large amount of money from his house. We were hiding in Busan after a five day journey from Seoul. I had been ordered to come. Despite her husband’s anger, Mr Moon and Kim Soon-cheol were on a luxurious shopping / sightseeing trip using her husband’s money. Mr. Moon ordered me to watch their nightly sexual intercourse and also ordered me “You do that too”. There was no religion or doctrine. It was just an orgy by three people full of sexual desire.
I saw the reality of Mr. Moon’s doctrine at that time. In retrospect, Mr. Moon’s doctrine was just for the purpose of having sexual pleasure.
The red dragon who disturbed the world 253
The messiah Mr. Moon came to Seoul after stealing Kim Baek-moon’s doctrine. In Pyongyang he was imprisoned for the charge of social disorder. In 1954, he founded the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity and the church grew rapidly. He sent Choi Bong-choon, [also known as Sang Ik ‘Papasan’ Choi] to Japan for propagation. [In Japan Choi Bong-choon was known as Nishikawa Masaru.] Kim Sang-chul [also known as David SC Kim] and Kim Young-oon were sent to America for propagation.
But today we can hear the voice of the victims who died of Mr. Moon’s irrational behavior. Now Mr. Moon is covering his face with new innocent believers who do not know the secret of the pikareum return and its practice. His imprisonment has been advertised as a glorified miracle. He has spent a lot of money that was earned hard by the members of the church.
A few years ago, a Japanese woman went to a slum are to sell Korean ginseng and she was gang raped and killed. The black rapists put her under a car to squash to eliminate the evidence. But her ID of the Unification Church was found. The money that earned like that has been spent by the Moons. And he claims that he is the messiah.
In Japan, a lot of members are selling chocolate and gums on the street to send money to Mr. Moon. And Mr. Moon is planning an impossible project. It is the International Highway Project. It is to build an underwater tunnel between Korea and Japan and connects it to China, Russia, and Europe. Even within the organization, they say that it is impossible.
The Second Coming of the Messiah, Mr. Moon, is planning to build an international highway. What kind of messiah is he? The return of the Garden of Eden must be his duty on earth.
Mr. Moon has called himself pastor in newspapers or media in the United States. But he never attended any theological school or never was ordained as a minister. If he was ordained in the school of the Unification Church, here is a question. Mr. Moon kept saying that he is the messiah and the third Adam. And his duty is to clear the world through the exchange of blood. Then how could the messiah become a pastor? That proves that he has lied to us so far.
I will explain the reason for his change of name. In the Book of Revelations of St. John 12:91, the red dragon appears and confuses the world. And he changed his part of name ‘Yong’, which means the Chinese ‘dragon’ to ‘Sun’, which means the ‘light.’ This means that he admitted that he was the Satan. Since I confessed my shameful history with Mr. Moon, there is no lie in my book. I can surely tell you that Mr. Moon is the real Satan.
I am willing to risk my life telling the truth about this red dragon Sun Myung Moon to the world to prevent any more victims throughout the world.
I pray for the judgment of the Lord God from the bottom of my heart.
