Ever met a Moonie?

Well, a gentleman from Osaka Japan came to my door yesterday, a missionary from the Unification Church (aka. Moonies). He was very nice, and was selling hand-crafted wind chimes as a fund raiser for his Church. If you are not familiar with the Moonies, see below.

Here's a link from the Unification Church, from their point of view:

Here's a good summary of their beliefs from CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS & RESEARCH MINISTRY ...

The Unification Church - Also known as the Moonies

Here's an excerpt:

"[Sun Myung] Moon claims to be the messiah of the Second Coming and his wife is the Holy Spirit. He and his wife, called The True Parents where he is the True Father and his wife the True Mother, are the first couple to be able to bring forth
children with no original sin. "The cross is the symbol of the defeat of Christianity." The Bible is considered scripture along with Moon’s work "Divine Principles." Sin is genetically based. It is not a moral issue. The thieves on the cross represent political movements. The thief on the right side of Jesus represents democracy. The thief on the left of Jesus is communism. Adam and Eve fell because of sexual sin. Eve had sexual relations with Satan. Jesus is a ‘true person’ though not God in flesh. The Holy Spirit is ‘the True Mother,’ or ‘the Second Eve." The church denies the doctrine of the Trinity. "
God bless,
