HWPL Peace Tours of Man-hee Lee (3-3): Local media's 'high interest'...“His name is ‘Light’”

Interview following the Berlin Open Bible seminar

“A groundbreaking Bible seminar.” “It has opened the way for everyone who wants to know the Bible to understand the Bible.” “It is no surprise that people continue to find comfort in his messages.”

As the first Peace Tour of Chairman Man-hee Lee took place before the establishment of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), he conducted the tour in his capacity as Chairman of Shincheonji Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony (Shincheonji). In particular, the Bible seminar he delivered as speaker met critical acclaim in Germany, where Christianity (Catholicism and Protestantism) accounts for more than 60% of the population. Various German media outlets, including the broadcasters RheinMainTV, Leipzig Fernsehen, JeetTV, and the weekly newspaper Der Nordberliner, continued their coverage with requests for interview flooding in.

RheinMainTV, located in the State of Hessen, carried out in-depth coverage of the 'Open Bible Seminar' held for 20 pastors at Frankfurter PresseClub and conducted a subsequent interview with Chairman Lee.

RheinMainTV introduced the conference as “a groundbreaking Bible seminar” and commended it highly, saying, “This new teaching on the Book of Revelation has opened the way for everyone who wants to know the Bible to understand the Bible.” During an interview with RheinMainTV, Chairman Lee said, “There is only one Bible (in this world), but there are so many interpretations and doctrines. Shincheonji is now testifying to the fact that the Bible has been fulfilled.”

The Berlin Open Bible Seminar hosted by Chairman Lee received further media attention. The German broadcaster Leipzig Fernsehen covered the Berlin seminar, interviewed Chairman Lee and aired it on the news. In particular, it explained the meaning of Chairman Lee's name as 'light' and 'illuminate', shedding light on the role of Chairman Lee as 'the light of the East'.

The program's news anchor said, “Man-hee Lee, a Korean, is not an ordinary Christian. Chairman Lee spoke of his mission being to inform the world that the Book of Revelation has been fulfilled as it is written in the Bible.” He continued, “The name ‘Hee’ means ‘light’ or ‘to illuminate’”. The broadcast concluded with the words, “It is not surprising that many people are looking for answers through their faith.”

JeetTV, a private online broadcaster, livestreamed the conference worldwide. In addition, the weekly newspaper Der Nordberliner conducted an interview with Chairman Lee and published a special write-up about the conference and Chairman Lee in time for Ascension Day. This newspaper has devoted about half a page to reporting on the contents of Chairman Lee's seminar in depth.

  1. This is beautiful work. I sincerely hope that the DPCW will be enacted as international law when it is presented to the UN in late 2022 or early 2023. Kudos to Chairman Lee, HWPL, IPYG and all their supporters
