I suspect the author of Reckless Love never thought it would be sung at a Unification Church evangelistic service.
Family Federation minister Demian Dunkley said 200 churches and houses of worship are represented at the event which is a big “family reunion.”
Bishop Noel Jones said he has studied the Moons’ teaching and has used them with students in his church. This appears to be a pretty clear admission that he has left orthodoxy. The syncretism is strong in his message.
Moon’s message was as promised. She claimed to be the only begotten daughter of God. Then, after some fractured history, she claimed that True Parents are the new opportunity to be born again and the way to receive the blessing and become the children of God.
While evangelicals are selling out to politics, the Unification Church is quietly evangelizing the disillusioned. According to their leaders, the Christian era is over and the era of True Parents is here. As an illustration to their followers, Unification leaders use Christian participation in Unification events as a signal that Christian leaders are coming into the Unificationist fold.
Watch Family Federation leader Michael Jenkins talk about Christian ministers who are coming into the Unification movement.
On November 12, Yolanda Adams, Hezekiah Walker, Israel Houghton, and Bishop Noel Jones will open for her Messiahship, the Only Begotten Daughter of God Hak Ja Han Moon, True Mother of all Heaven, Earth and Mankind. The event is called Peace Starts with Me. Curtis Farrow will convene a choir of 5,000 unsuspecting Christians who will move a little closer to another religion.
The Family Federation for a Heavenly USA (aka the Unification Church) has added worship artist Israel Houghton to the lineup of high profile Christians who will help evangelize New Yorkers for self-described True Mother and the only begotten daughter of God, Hak Ja Han Moon.
In the newest video ad for the November 12 Nassau Coliseum rally Peace Starts with Me, the organizers announced the addition of Grammy award winner Houghton. View the video below:
Houghton joins Hezekiah Walker, Yolanda Adams and Bishop Noel Jones as self-proclaimed Christian performers/speakers at an event which Moon’s followers hope will help establish her as a mainstream religious figure. She and her followers claim that Jesus failed in his mission by being crucified. In the modern era, her husband was the fulfillment of the Messianic promises and she is the daughter of God and only through she and her husband — True Parents — is their hope for reunion with God.
I have heard no response from Adams, Walker or Jones regarding their support for this non-Christian event.
