51 51 “I have worked to bring God’s love and truth from the family to the world level…I and my wife now stand as the True Parents of all humankind.” Reverend Sun Myung Moon, Korea, 1993

52 Lessons Learned God never gives up. Common characteristics of a messianic figure  different ages but same mission. Culture of unjust suffering = best preparation for the messiah. Hinduism  clearest understanding of Messiah (Avatar). True Parents are the model but we should all become Avatars, Messiahs, etc.
