Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church and self-proclaimed Messiah of humanity, has died at 92. In Matthew 24:4-5, Jesus warned “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many (NASB).” For those who don’t know, “Christ” was not Jesus’ last name; it is a title meaning “the anointed one,” or in Hebrew, “Messiah.”
Mr. Moon became wildly successful in his creation of a religion, amassing of tremendous wealth, and making of friends among the world’s most powerful people. For this wicked, lying, false interpreter of the cosmos, Jesus has this to say:
“If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 35 For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37 For what will a man give in exchange for his soul (Mark 8:34b-37 NASB)?”
You can be sure Mr. Moon would like another chance at answering that question… By the way, what are you willing to give in exchange for your own soul?
