The ACLC Redefining "Love" To Suit The New Apostasy

ACLC Logo
Other Unification Logos HERE
Ecumenism has long been a part of the landscape among Christian churches and non-christian organizations. This is an effort to rally around certain issues that will ultimately be beneficial to the community in which these ministries are a part of.

Ecumenism can be good. It is good to work together on projects that effect the well-being of the community and individuals living within the community and the world. However, ecumenism at its heart is the effort to rally around truth. The problem is that it can go terribly wrong when non-biblical and even anti-Christ sentiments are introduced, mixed and combined with Christian dogmas and thoughts under the guise of "love, compassion" "tolerance" and "understanding". Thus the trap of ecumenism is revealed. Tolerance is extolled at the expense of truth.  Gospel truth is always minimized as simply being "another path" to reach the overall objective of the so called movement. Terms are redefined to fit the need of a fruitful understanding to all individuals. Therefore, many ecumenical gatherings quickly dissolve into cultic styled movements, with no true underlying objective truth along with an overt emphasis placed on humanistic definitions of love and acceptance. Soon, those that don't agree are hailed as being intolerant or unloving. The need to compromise truth was never so clear than at the recent gathering of the Midwest ACLC (American Clergy Leadership Conference) 2011 Prayer Breakfast in Chicago, IL. on May 17th, when Minister Louis Farrakhan was called upon to address the group as he does on an almost annual basis. (2010 and 2008)

Before we get into some of the more controversial encouragements of Minister Farrakhan (which I have decided to table until Pt. 2 of this article is presented ~ stay tuned it was truly amazing!), I want to briefly take a look at the purpose of the ACLC, and most specifically examine some of the foundational teachings and beliefs of it's chief founder. From what I can see, those two things will allow us to see the real intent of the ACLC and the resultant damage that we can expect from it.

What Does The ACLC Believe?

It is claimed by their leadership that the goal of the ACLC is to center itself around and encourage the healthy


restoration of the family. The organization offers the following core values as a statement of purpose:
1- To unify the body of Christ (aka: the Christian Church) and all Abrahamic faiths

2- To dissolve barriers of race, gender, ethnicity and faith, by practicing Jesus's teachings on love

3- To be a prophetic voice, promoting family and peace, to the leaders of the nation and of the world

4- To promote the blessing of marriage as the cornerstone to rebuild the family, restore the community, to renew the nation and the world.
5- To bring salvation through our Lord and savior Jesus the Christ, and to live according to the virtues of all faiths.
6- To be led by the Holy Spirit. to inspire unity among the people of the nation.
7- To work for an environment and culture of peace, by living for the sake of others.  
Now, just in case you didn't notice it, the foundation of life and the community according to the ACLC is the family. This is a very tricky game here...we all know that strong families are a strength and benefit to the community, but notice the statement...through the family the community is restored and the nation and the world is renewed. Once again, the critic will say, "What's wrong with that?" Let;s take a look...

Within Christianity the government, or the strength of the community, be it families and all institutions are to be built upon Jesus:
Isa 9:6-7 ~ "6-For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7-Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."

Further the word of God has hailed the Messiah and reg rejected Jesus as being the Chief Cornerstone upon which all things are to be built or constructed:
Psalms 118:22-23 ~ " 22-The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 23-This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes."
Ephes. 2:19-21 ~ "19-Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20-And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21-In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:"
~Also See~
(Isa. 28:16, 1 Pet. 2:6-7, Mt. 21: 42-45, Acts 4:11-12) 

The critic will certainly pose that, my assessment is not what the statement means. That anyone will understand that the foundation of the family is essential to the purpose of community. If it weren't for the following facts, I wouldn't have to point out the difference. However the interpretation of my prior facts are firmly rooted in the following facts listed below under "Who Is Rev. Sun Myung Moon".

The facts are that the family does not replace the foundation of Christ and more specifically Jesus and his atoning work upon the cross. Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his Unification Church deny the atonement upon the cross, which proves that the Unification Church is an anti-Christ cult, replete with all the markings of cultism. According to them Jesus IS NOT God, he is a man or a mere prophet and certainly one that was unable to save man from their sins. In the case of the Unification church the teaching is clear that Sun Myung Moon believes that HE IS Jesus reincarnated or the Second Coming (Advent) of Jesus on earth.

Who Is Rev. Sun Myung Moon?
Sun Myung Moon & Wife Hak Ja Han
For a little history, just in case you haven't connected the dots yet, the ACLC was founded in May of 200 with 120 churches initially at the direction and call of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church of Korea, who,  for a number of years, had been seeking to become a part of the mainstream Christian church within America. They used to be found on the street corners and airports selling flowers and handing out certain material for small donations usually a dollar or so. They currntly operate and fellowship through the ACLC in all 50 states of the United States.
In recent times, Rev. Moon,  through several American emissaries, tried to purchase the pulpit at the Church Of God In Christ National Holy Convocation in effort to fast-track his acceptance among Christians not in the know. The late, then Presiding Bishop, Chandler David Owens, is said to have rejected over $1 Million payment that Rev. Moon offered for pulpit time.

What might have Bishop Owens knew that many don't know and that some claim to not know even today?

He may have known that Sun Myung Moon, is called the "True Father" and the "Lord Of The Second Advent" by his most faithful followers. He himself not only  claims to be the "Sinless Messiah", he also claims that his aim is to subjugate the world unto himself. He has written about it and his agenda is made known to anyone that will simply look:
"The whole world is in my hand, and I will conquer and subjugate the world." ~ Sun Myung Moon, Master Speaks, 5/17/73
"Let's say there are 500 sons and daughters like you in each state. Then we could control the government. ... The time will come, without my seeking it, that my words will almost serve as law. If I ask a certain thing, it will be done. If I don't want something, it will not be done." ~ Sun Myung Moon, Master Speaks 3/24/74
Subjugation and control of the world is Sun Myung Moon's aim and goal. Raising up individuals in every city that will be in union with him and his vision for the community is his aim. In order to do this, it takes the church of all kinds and denominations to rally around certain truths, such as the restoration of the family and the sanctity of marriage, and the next thing one knows, the organization itself is mainstreamed.  The "Moonies" as they have been formerly known, would then be like all other Christians dedicated to good and acceptable causes with a proven track record which cannot be denied.

Another fact is that Sun Myung moon not only believe that he is God and will come back to visit his children after his death as the "True Parent" of all, he also does not believe that the Christian church is saved or that it is a vessel of God in any way, no matter the denomination. He believes that the Christian Church is the biblical equivalent to Cain. Here's a summary of his words on the subject provided by one of his representatives Rev. Yang on 6/19/2011 in Las vegas, NV.:
"Christianity is in Cain's position and the Unification Church is in Abel's position. In the Unification church there are also Cain and Abel. Those who joined the church first were Abel and those who joined later were Cain, but when Abel are mistaken, their position must be switched. Therefore, Abel will later become either the victor or Cain.
What is Cain? It is on Satan's side. Why do I always send members out for new missions? It is because when the Abel lose the pioneering spirit, they die spiritually. In such a case, even when they pray so hard, they could not have the graceful prayer they had had before, and it would be difficult for them even to find their place later as Cain. If they want to be like the way they were, they must always go back to their starting point, which is taking the path of pioneering. I cannot be responsible for those who were worn out and you have to take your own responsibility."
In short, for the "Moonies", the Christian church, (even the Church Of God In Christ), is a mission field to be won to salvation. The Christian church is to be evangelized so that the virtues of Sun Myung Moon and other, purely ecumenical religious virtues, can be extolled and the Christ of the bible replaced with a Second Advent, false prophet, and claimed Messiah, Sun Myung Moon himself.

From this it should be ABUNDANTLY clear that the efforts of Sun Myung Moon, even through the ACLC have nothing to do with unifying the church of Christ for missions. It has everything to do with unifying the church UNDER MOON'S SUBJUGATION! The question is how can so many leaders including COGIC leaders, and ministers of all stripes, be duped into association with groups and individuals representing the Moonies??? The Moonies are a non-Christian Anti-Christ cult which ALL Christian churches should be trying to evangelize and lead to Christ, NOT the other way around!!!

Why does Sun Myung Moon believe that he is the Messiah?

1 Cor. 1:18 ~ "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

Moon believes that he is the messiah because, according to him, the atonement of Jesus on the cross was insufficient. In fact, following his clear teachings on the subject, Jesus choose the best possible path under the circumstances and was crucified. It was not his "intent" to be crucified. If that didn't violate ALL that we know of scripture, and about God I would agree with him...
From his book, "The Divine Principle" in chapter 4, "The Advent Of The Messiah", Moon states the following concerning the redemption of Jesus on the cross:

"What does the reality of the life in faith of the Christian teach us? It tells us straightforwardly that redemption through the cross cannot completely liquidate our original sin, and that it leaves man's original nature not yet perfectly restored. Jesus promised the Lord would come, because Jesus knew he could not fulfill the purpose of his advent as the Messiah through redemption by the cross. Christ had to come again to fulfill perfectly the will of God, because God's predestination to restore the Kingdom of Heaven on earth was absolute and unchangeable."

He goes on to say the following:
"Since God's will was thus to have the Israelites believe that Jesus was the Messiah, the Israelites, who were supposed to live according to God's will, should have believed in him as the Messiah. If they had believed in Jesus as the Messiah according to God's will, how could they have crucified him, after having waited for him for such a long time? It was because, against God's will, they did not believe that Jesus was the Messiah, that the Israelites crucified him. We, therefore, must realize that Jesus did not come to die on the cross."
Now this is a total twisting and misrepresentation of scripture and Christian understanding of scripture. Within Christian thought and teaching, Jesus came to do the will of God (John 4:34) which included being crucified and pouring himself out as a sacrifice from the beginning. (Rev. 13:8)
Heb. 10:7-10 ~ 7-Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8-Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9-Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10-By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."
(see. Ps. 40:7-8)
Don't believe me on Moon's sentiments and purpose? Here are further statements where Sun Myung Moon spells it out that the cross of Jesus was insufficient to save or provide salvation. This is found in Chapter 4 "Was the providence of salvation fulfilled through redemption by the cross?":
"In the Bible we find many verses written as if Jesus' suffering through crucifixion were inevitable. One of the representative examples of this is that Jesus reproached Peter, who tried to dissuade him when he prophesied about his suffering on the cross, and said, "Get behind me, Satan!" (Matt. 16:23). Otherwise, how could Jesus reproach Peter so bitterly? In fact, Jesus was then resolved to take the cross as the condition of indemnity to pay for the accomplishment of even the spiritual salvation of man when he found that he was unable to accomplish the providence of both spiritual and physical salvation (Luke 9:31). In that situation, Peter's dissuading him from taking the way of the cross was a hindrance to the providence of spiritual salvation through the cross; so, he reproached Peter." 
"In the next place, when Jesus uttered his last words on the cross, saying, "It is finished" (John 19:30), he did not mean that the whole purpose of the providence of salvation was attained through the cross. Knowing that the disbelief of the people was at that point inalterable, Jesus chose the way of the cross in order to establish the foundation of the providence of spiritual salvation, leaving the providence of physical salvation to the time of the Second Advent. Therefore, Jesus meant by the words "it is finished" that he finished establishing the basis for the providence of spiritual salvation through the cross, which was the secondary providence of salvation. "
So here we have a CULT leader that has redefined the purpose of the cross, created another Jesus and claims to be unifying the church for the mission of Christ...the question is WHAT CHRIST? He has totally takes away any Christ that a Christian would and could believe in, so why Christ could the church be rising to glorify, follow or unify under?

Conclusion Of Pt. 1

Hopefully the lights have gone off and the whistle has been blown here...Thus reveals the accord with Islam. Muslims, including the NOI, do not believe that Jesus died upon the cross. They would hold that it was actually Judas who died as an intervention of God in defending his earthly prophet Jesus.

In Moon's case, although he believes that Jesus did die upon the cross, it is a different Jesus than the one ascribed within scripture. In both cases they do not believe in a physical and bodily resurrection. Sun Myung Moon himself cites this tenet regarding resurrection of the dead:
"Many have hitherto believed that the death caused by the Fall was physical death. Consequently, they have interpreted the biblical concept of resurrection as revival from physical death, and believed that resurrection of the dead involves the biological regeneration of their decomposed bodies. However, the Fall of the first human ancestors did not cause this kind of death. According to the Principle of Creation, the human body was created to return to dust after it grows old. A decomposed body cannot be restored to its original state. Furthermore, it is not necessary for a spirit to take on another physical body when he is meant to enjoy eternal life in the vast spirit world.
Resurrection may be defined as the process of being restored from the death caused by the Fall to life, from the realm of Satan's dominion to the realm of God's direct dominion, through the providence of restoration. Accordingly, whenever we repent of our sins and rise to a higher state of goodness, we are resurrected to that degree."
Temper that with what the Nation Of Islam teaches about the same subject:
"5. WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of the dead—not in physical resurrection—but in mental resurrection. We believe that the so-called Negroes are most in need of mental resurrection; therefore they will be resurrected first. Furthermore, we believe we are the people of God's choice, as it has been written, that God would choose the rejected and the despised. We can find no other persons fitting this description in these last days more than the so-called Negroes in America. We believe in the resurrection of the righteous."
So here we have at least one agreement from both cults. Neither of them believe in a physical or bodily resurrection even though the physical and bodily resurrection is an essential part of the Christian faith.
1 Cor. 15:12-17 ~ 12-Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13-But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14-And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15-Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 16-For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17-And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins."

Could this be one reason that the emissaries of the Unification church thought it so necessary to use Il. 3rd Jurisdiction COGIC Adm. Asst. T. L Barrett (pictured above) to make the Farrakhan connection.  According to his account, Sun Myung Moon's emissary was looking for an opportunity to meet Minister Farrakhan, which ultimately happened right there at Life Center COGIC.

Once again, how does this in any way unify Christians?

I got news...IT DOESN'T!  Correction...I hope now that the lie of Sun Myung Moon has been exposed that Christians will UNIFY to reject this heresy.

Blessed!

In Part 2: "The NOI Embraces Scientology Practice"

Could there be a looming split within the NOI? There will probably be one since Minister Louis Farrakhan has introduced Scientology. Stay tuned, you don't want to miss this one!

  1. Moon falls in line with the sun god cults of old also. Look at the symbol and his name isn't "Sun" and "Moon" for no reason.

    This is a resurgence of Baalism and Baal worship. Another astral religion and religious system. Check out all the symbols and emblems which his various organizations have so that you won't be duped by this apostasy in any form.

    Dan. 8:25 ~ "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."

  2. Brzezinski set up Arab Spring and Zia, so why surprised bin Laden was in Sineurabia code? Pakistanis descend from weasels who sold their Hindu brothers into hundreds of years of islamic slavery. That is why FIAT supplied Iran and every Catholic is like a Manchurian Candidate programmed to kill their best friend of they felt the "Holy Father" required it. Vatican Osservatore Romano editor Vian said on May 18th that Obama "is not a pro-abortion president" - proves stand to encourage Catholics to breed and to encourage non-Catholics to abort out of spite. The Vatican likes the abortion status quo in the USA for this reason. Their purpose is only conquest, not faith. Carolignian Brzezinski spawned Zia al Haq, Khomeini, and bin Laden - breaks up superpowers via Aztlan and Kosovo as per Joel Garreau's Nine Nations. Brzezinski, Buckley and Buchanan winked anti-Semitic votes for Obama, delivered USA to Pope's feudal basket of Bamana Republics. Michael Pfleger and Joe Biden prove Obama is the Pope's boy. Obama is half a Kearney from County Offaly in Ireland. Talal got Pontifical medal as Fatima mandates Catholic-Muslim union against Jews (Francis Johnson, Great Sign, 1979, p. 126), Catholic Roger Taney wrote Dred Scott decision. John Wilkes Booth, Tammany Hall and Joe McCarthy were Catholics. Now Catholic majority Supreme Court. Catholics Palmisano, Grasso, Damato, Langone, Mozilo, Ranieri, Dioguardi, Palmieri destroyed American industry with their casuistrous ethics. Subprime construction mobsters had hookers deliver mortgages to banks. McCain's Keeting started it all. They find American cars too advanced to use or their mechanics to fix. Ellis Island Popecrawlers brought in FDR. Since Pio Nino banned voting they consider our Constitution and laws immoral and illegitimate and think nothing of violating them or passing legislation that undermine them. They believe that they can not be fully loyal to their superiors if they do not go the extra stretch and break the law intentionally. Their slovenly, anti-intellectual work ethic produces vacuous, casuistrous blather and a tangle of hypocritical, contradictory regulations. Their clubhouse purges provided praetorian training for corporate misgovernance. They sided with the enemy in both World Wars and now, too. Their brutal, vindictive tradition was manifest when Pompey crucified Spartacus and his six thousand fellow rebel slaves as a grisly display along the Capua-Rome highway. They know no mercy or forgiveness: when the subjugated Carthage asked permission to defend itself, they were so paranoid, they burned and salted it to the ground - they now treat Russia the same way, exposing us to muslim risk. Vercingetorix was strangled in prison five years after he surrendered. Every American boom has been caused by an Evangelical Revival and every major Depression by the domination of new Catholic immigrants. NYC top drop outs: Hispanic 32%, Black 25%, Italian 20%. NYC top illegals: Ecuadorean, Italian, Polish. Ate glis-glis but blamed plague on others, now lettuce coli. Their bigotry most encouraged terror yet they reap most security funds. View this life as casuistry training to survive purgatory. Rabbi circumcises lower, Pope upper brain. Tort explosion by glib casuistry. Hollywood Joe Kennedy had Bing Crosby proselytize. Bazelya 1992 case proves PLO-IRA-KLA links. Our enemy is the Bru666elles Sineurabia feudal Axis and the only answer is alliance with Israel and India. They killed six million Jews, a million Serbs, half a million freemasons, a quarter million Gypsies, they guided the slaughter of Assyrians and Armenians, and promoted the art of genocide throughout the world now they are relentless in their year to canonize nazi pope. They had no qualms hijacking American policy in Vietnam or Balkans to papal ends, but when American interests opposed those of the papacy in Iraq and Iran, they showed their true fangs (Frum, Unpatriotic Conservatives).
