Warning—Beware Of “High School
Of The Pacific” In Hawaii!
by Sandy Simpson
High School of the Pacific (HSP) located in Kealukekua, HI is yet another in the many enterprises of the Unification Church whose “Messiah” is Sun Myung Moon.
This tremendous opportunity (of HSP) became reality by a generous investment in the education of specially gifted island children through the vision and initiative of Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon. In gratitude to them and to all that have endeavored so long and hard to make this school a reality, the staff and students of the High School of the Pacific offer their heartfelt gratitude. (High School Of The Pacific, History, http://highschool-pacific.org/history.htm)
This cult group, better known as the “Moonies”, has a long history of trying to infiltrate the islands of the Pacific. They have been spreading money around with promises to build buildings, etc. with a cover story about helping “families”. The “Family Federation For World Peace and Unification”, another of Moon’s organizations, tried establish a foothold in the Marshall islands some time ago by offering to build youth recreational facilities. They met with limited success in Kwajlein because some Christians saw through Moon’s ploy of trying to get into the islands and start brainwashing islanders with his heretical doctrines. But recently they also met with the Governor of Chuuk and presented what they are doing., and one of the administrators of HSP is now Chuukese They also went to Lukinor, Satawon, Kosrae, Pohnpei, the Marshalls, Palau and Yap. The documented photo evidence of this is currently on their web site.
But now, with this new HSP enterprise, they are apparently winning the youth over. They are doing this by offering full tuition scholarships to HSP where the students will live in a dorm situation. I must warn you that this is simply a ploy to indoctrinate and brainwash the youngest and best minds in Micronesia. Cults are known for targeting youth, knowing that they represent the next generation and may be able to make the situation more favorable for Moon to set up shop in the islands. But let’s look at what the Unification Church teaches so that you will know what will be taught to students being sent to HSP.
Moon publicly declared himself to be the Messiah at the opening session of the Assembly of World Religions held in San Francisco CA. a number of years back in 1992. According to Moon and his new revelation, “a new Messiah, a Lord of the 2nd advent, is necessary.” Won’t he be surprised when the real Lord comes in His 2nd advent!
Ultimately, Moon's goal is to be able to completely disregard the Bible. His followers are taught:
"Until our mission with the Christian church is over, we must quote the Bible and use it to explain the Divine Principle. After we receive the inheritance of the Christian, we will be free to teach without the Bible" (Master Speaks, March/April, 1965, p.1).
"The bible is not the truth itself, but a textbook teaching the truth. It must not be regarded as absolute in every detail" (Divine Principle p.9).
"God is now throwing Christianity away and is now establishing a new religion, and this new religion is the Unification Church." (Time, Sept. 30, 1974, p. 68).
"Divine Principle asserts that God is perpetual, self-generating energy, the first cause and the primal source of all that exists...Causing the visible creation and operating through it, God is responsible for the innumerable types of patterns which energy forms to make the world we touch, see and know" (Young Oon Kim, Unification Theology and Christian Thought, pp. 11).
Concerning the Holy Spirit, Moon claims he…"appears feminine, masculine and impersonal… like God himself is invisible and incorporeal- a bright light or a field of magnetic energy (Unification Theology p.201-202).
Moon's own Kingdom of God on earth will be established by what he identifies as the "third Adam". The "third Adam" is Rev. Moon and he claims he has already begun to establish God's kingdom.
"He [God] is living in me. I am the incarnation of Himself... The whole world is in my hand, and I will conquer and subjugate the world." (Proclamation of the Messiah by Reverend Sun Myung Moon, 8/24/92)
Moon teaches that Jesus was only a man who attained Deity by fulfilling the purpose of creation. Jesus was not the unique, only begotten Son of God who was pre-existent with the Father before all created things.
Jesus attained deity, as a man who fulfilled the purpose of creation but can by no means be considered God Himself. (DP p. 209, 210)
Yet Moon has no trouble attributing the titles of God to himself.
"I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end." He calls himself "the Lord of the Second Advent", "Father of the Universe", and the "Visible God"..."God and man are one. Man is incarnate God." (Unification Theology p.53)
Besides Moon's self claims to be the Messiah, God, King of Kings, he does have a very metaphysical, occult view of God and the Bible.
"Unification theology starts with the fact of polarity as the main clue for understanding the essential nature of God. hence it is not primarily interested in defending Trinitarian doctrine of the 4th century creeds." (Unification Theology p.53)
"God's essential Positivity and essential negativity are attributes of His essential Character and essential form ... Here we call the of God positivity and negativity, masculinity" and "femininity respectively." (Divine Principle p. 24).
The God of the Bible is a personal Creator and Father who loves his children and interacts with them. He's not just an "invisible essence like electricity or magnetism.” Moon also states:
"The Holy Spirit is a female Spirit, this is because she came as the True Mother, that is, the second Eve'...She is also the spiritual wife of Jesus (Divine Principle, p. 215)
This mother of course would be his own wife.
Creation means nothing more than the Creator, God, projecting Himself into a substantial form...When God takes form, this is creation...Genesis gives us the impression that God's creation is accomplished through some magic of His words...But now it has been revealed that it was not this easy at all. God invested Himself in creation. He did not reserve even one ounce of power. Creation was...His total effort of giving all of Himself." (Sun Myung Moon & The Unification Church p. 18).
"God is just like you and me. All human traits originate in God." (Rev. Moon, Christianity in Crisis, p. 4)
Moon says in the forward of his speech:
"The words that follow are not concepts of one man’s thinking. Rather they are a direct revelation from God especially for this age." (Mid Week magazine Mar.19, 1997)
He goes on to say:
“Wherever you go, please try to spread Rev. Moon's message through television or other media. You will never perish."
But the problem is that if you do espouse the doctrine of the most irreverent Moon you are certain to perish.
Unification Church teachers state:
"Only Father has been able to solve the secrets of heaven which have been veiled for 6,000 years. True Father proclaimed that he knows more about God than anyone in the world." (Prof. Taek Yong Oh, Today's World, June, 1997, p. 17.)
Who is Father according to Moon?
"The real teacher, the king of teachers, is Father. The real King of Kings is Father. ...My teaching is the real one." (Sun Myung Moon, "Let Us Realize That My Family Is The Representative and Central Family", Today's World, Sept/Oct. 1994, p. 7. )
So here is Moon blaspheming God by calling himself the Father and the King of Kings.
"Within this world there is no individual whom God loves more than Reverend Moon. There is no one else who knows God more than Reverend Moon." (Unification News, June 1996, p. 3).
I’m sorry but I have to strongly disagree. There seems to be no one further away from knowing the God of the Bible than Moon. One day Moon will be eclipsed by the Son, who will come from heaven and all that was said by Moon will be taken into account.
Divine Principle and Rev. Moon teach that all religions will be abolished one day except for the Unification Church. I guess this is survival of the fittest. He states the same for languages...that only one will survive and that will be his native tongue Korean. It will be according to his personal delusion of grandeur a "Unification theocracy" established for world domination where Moon and one of his designated leaders will have total power. Considering his age and the fact that his exit out of this world is soon to be accomplished, I don't think he will see his mission complete—unless of course he rises from the dead. Moon (at the time this article was written) is 80 years so time is not on his side, neither is God. He will soon have to answer to his Maker for all his blasphemous claims and the ruination of so many lives through his revelation of marriage.
What else can be said of a man whose theology and practices are dangerous to the average person. It's incredible that he’s gone this far, but in the end he will know how wrong he was. The concern for us is how to reach all those who are dedicated loyal followers of his teachings. We would love to see them loyal and follow the true Christ.
Sun Myung Moon is a false Christ, a false prophet, and a false teacher. The Bible is clear about the end times:
Matthew 24:23-27 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect— if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. "So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Christian parents are responsible for the upbringing of their children in the things of the Lord:
Deut. 11:18-19 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Psalms 34:11 Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
It is my considered opinion that you should NOT send any children from your island to the High School of the Pacific. ■
