Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL - Chairman: Man Hee Lee) hosted its 14th WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Office Interfaith Dialogue at its WARP Office Wonju branch. More than 40 people, including a panel of representatives from  Shincheonji Church of Jesus, an ecumenical church and the Unification Church participated in the event. The panel discussed ▲1. How did the war between good and evil happen in each era? ▲2. How will Jesus return to the world in the end times? What is the path of the Second Coming?

For the first topic, each panel answered the question in turn. The pastor from the ecumenical church answered, "The war between good and evil began when Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Since then, good and evil have been at war in every era. Today we have to differentiate between good and evil and believe in Jesus Christ to go to heaven." The panel from the Unification Church said, "The history of mankind is the history of war. This is an ideological war and it will be completed when good defeats war. War will end when  all mankind is saved and we create a peaceful world." However, the panel from Shincheonji Church of Jesus answered, "This is a war between God and His enemy, and the Bible talks about a spiritual war, which is a 'war of doctrine'. God has been in an ongoing war against Satan to purify the world of sin. God is at war with Satan to heal the world."

For the second topic, the pastor from the ecumenical church claimed, "Jesus Christ has already come into our hearts. We have to serve the God of the Bible, who is the Holy Spirit." The pastor from the Unification Church insisted "Jesus Christ had already come to Korea from 1917 to 1930."

In contrast, the Shincheonji Church of Jesus panel answered, "According to 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 verses 1-3, Jesus said that he would come back to the world after 'the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.' Believers today must clearly know what these verses mean."

WARP Office Interfaith Dialogue
After the discussion, audience members said, "It is impressive to see panels not in criticism of one another but freely sharing their beliefs" and "It was a great opportunity to listen to the doctrines of so-called 'cult' churches. I hope that the religious circles work together and understand one another without misunderstandinh."

Currently, HWPL's WARP Office has 170 branches globally and is carrying out its WARP Office Interfaith Dialogue for peace among religions.

  1. Excellent article. This reminds me of the words of Chairman Lee of HWPL:-
    "The primary duty of a religious leader is to understand the true meaning of religion. That is why religious leaders should gather at these interfaith dialogue meetings at the WARP Office to discuss their respective scriptures"
