“Considered from the viewpoint of the intellect, the human Fall represents humanity’s descent into ignorance. People are composed of two aspects: internal and external, or mind and body; likewise, the intellect consists of two aspects: internal and external. In the same way, there are two types of ignorance: internal ignorance and external ignorance.” (Divine Principle, p.2 para 5)
I have very little time on this earth. My body is already starting to show signs of getting older. My hair is turning white. I must keep sharing God’s word with you. In order for you to understand who I am, I have, indeed, written a little book. It is called “Living Stone.” It is available for sale on this web-page. Please feel free to buy it. DPconversations.com is filled to the brim with essays. These essays have a focus on God’s words for us…but this one essay will be about me. I feel I owe it to you.

You may think that I will advertise about my book now to hook you into buying it, right? If you buy it I will be so honored. However, I want to show you my relationship with God. Let’s start with my brother Jesus’s words in the Holy Bible: “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” Jesus felt the pain of Saul because Saul was acting as Jesus’s representative and yet disassociated himself from Christ. In other words, Saul betrayed Christ when he kicked against the goads. It was difficult for Saul in his conscience to go against Jesus Christ. This is, in a nutshell, the duplicity of any Christian man or woman when we relate with Christ, isn’t it? You think of how lovely it is that Christ gave it all for you but you do not understand your responsibility in that God given love called forgiveness to honor and cherish His principle of creation.
The Divine Principle must awaken you to guide your life with the reality and relationship of Jesus’s love for God. In loving Jesus, you begin to have a relationship with the living truth of God. How many people who read this article can say that they have spoken with God? How many people have heard God’s voice? Well, I am here to tell you that I am a witness of Jesus Christ in Sun Myung Moon.
