PC's Evidence for the List of Concerns
For more than two years now, Hyung Jin has been speaking repeatedly about Mrs. Moon (Hak Ja Han), as a mother whom he'll briefly affirm that he loves, and as a spiritual leader he once honored. Observers may find it difficult to accept that any spiritually-minded pastor would become so very harsh, about his own mother, so here's the man in his own words. (It's hosted on Vimeo, rather than a web-site server.)
The Sanctuary Church has posted numerous videos of their sermons on YouTube and etc., also podcasts, though it took a long time to begin publishing transcripts or even summaries. This clip, 8 minutes 40 seconds long, is from Hyung Jin's lengthy sermon "Evil Age of Apostasy" given on Sunday, 5 July 2015. In it he reiterates many of the points he'd already made in previous months.
This clip happens to encompass a whole range of the concerns I have listed. These include sharp public disparagement of his own mother, inaccurate condemnations of the UC/Family Federation and its pastors, clever appeals to special pride (similar to a conspiracy theorist's exclusive "open mindedness" and "bravery" in a harsh world), fundamentalist Shemitah prophecies of imminent doom, fantastic claims about prematurely "pulling the plug" on the comatose Rev. SM Moon, the derisive name ("Han mother") the SC uses for Mrs. Moon, the deadly consequences of an "improperly" utilized chair and a "wrongly" titled quote collection, the boogeyman "Cheongpyeong woman" (Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim, who has since retired), and more. All this to audible cheers from the (mostly unseen) congregation, which meets in a building that reportedly has a lot of empty pews on most Sundays.
This video clip (with more to follow), is provided here for educational purposes. The full sermons are easy to find, if needed.♥ Again: for outside observers, please understand that the vast majority of Unificationists are appalled by Hyung Jin's recent behavior. The movement's newer generations have universally ignored it. Only a handful of those younger folks are involved, either in support or opposition. Many UC/FFWPU and GPF/FPA elders can barely stomach watching the SC's sermons, which is an additional reason to offer these brief clippings. Most of us hope for eventual reconciliation, however some folks think it's better for the larger movement that these hotheads have all stepped forward -- and gone elsewhere.
