1. Karl Marx
(1818-1883, The founder of Marxism; born of a Jewish family in Trier, Germany.)
God exists as Parent of humankind.
I attended here to confirm that I, Marx, affirm God's existence and that He is the Parent of all humankind. I denied God and shouted loudly with confidence to the extent that people believed me more than God. Now I'd like to reveal my experience with God to the whole world. I met Dr. Lee for the first time in the spirit world and was very attracted by having several talks about theory with him.
I felt that my theoretical paradigm was crumbling as I listened to his Godism lecture. At the same time my pride was damaged severely. When I listened to Godism, I thought it was a dream, but it was not. Then a beam of light came into my heart like a red-hot bullet. After moving through the air with the light, I came to see a miserable scene. I thought it likely that I was in Hell. Then I heard a voice saying, `Look at that. The poor children of God are groaning here. Save them. Be responsible for them. God is the Parent of all human beings.'
My whole body was covered with sweat, as if it had been raining. I saw a very miserable scene. My chest was choking and was in such pain that I couldn't stand it. I told Dr. Lee what I experienced. Dr. Lee said, `That's your responsibility. Think it over. After my experience of God's light, I have felt God always with me. Dr. Lee opened a new theoretical perspective to me.
All the thinkers in this cosmos! I, Marx, have met God. I have found that He is the Parent of humankind. I have felt the greatness of God's love. I clearly convey to you who God is. He is the Parent of humankind. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on the Earth, brought this fact to light. The Divine Principle and Unification Thought express the original standards that open the way to salvation, so you must read them. I ask this of you seriously. I clearly say that I apologize for my past to God and True Parents and love them and am proud of them.
2. Friedrich Engels
(1820-1895, Marx's lifelong fellow thinker.)
The Divine Principle saved me.
When I look at the harmonized cosmos and the organization of human beings, I have no excuse for my past years of denying God. I expect my example to become a lesson for the people on Earth and in the spirit world. And I want to tell you the impression I have from the Divine Principle education. I would like to clearly and honestly point out the way humankind must go. Don't believe in other gods, but place your hope in God.
Because of my strong pride, I neglected God when I was on the Earth. I could see nothing but actual beings and thought that those who believe in God are weak people. I spent my life on the Earth without knowing that life on Earth is very short. I, who denied God and spirits, was very miserable when I came to the spirit world. I doubted that life here was connected with that on the Earth, even after I lived here. How can I express even a part of my bitter heart? I have no way to deny that I, who denied God and this world when I was on the Earth, now live in the spirit world.
People on Earth, please listen to my confession. There were many questions about life in the spirit world that I couldn't answer. But after I learned the Divine Principle and Unification Thought with Marx, I began to find the answers to my questions. From the moment my questions were answered, I was overwhelmed with the fact that I was a sinner. Dr. Lee saved me. I had a chance to see God. It was so painful that I wanted to commit suicide. Unification Thought explained the existence of God to me clearly and in detail. Then a strange fear and terror came upon me and I had no idea what to do.
Then suddenly a giant appeared. I couldn't look at him because of an inexplicable fear. He said to me in a silent voice, Look at me, and then he walked away without showing his face. I followed him, but he suddenly disappeared. It was very strange. I looked for him further and I found him standing in front of a big picture. He said calmly, Follow me. It is clear that you must go, find your way, and come up with a solution. But I couldn't stand the fear. I asked Dr. Lee who he was. Dr. Lee told me that he was Reverend Moon who brought to light the Divine Principle. He said that Reverend Moon is the Parent of humankind and explained all the circumstances surrounding that. I couldn't stand the pain. What was I to do? I anguished greatly. But Dr. Lee gave me courage. As God is the parent and the substance of love, He will forgive everything. Now what you have to do is to follow your mind. God and True Parents lead their children with forgiveness and love. This calmed my mind and gave me courage.
You people on the Earth! Philosophers who think God doesn't exist must brace themselves and observe everything. I experienced the existence of God as the Parent of humankind. And the world after death exists in your future. Please grasp God during your lifetime. If you don't want to anguish in a position as miserable as mine, study the Divine Principle and Unification Thought and receive Reverend Moon's guidance. I beg that of you. I experienced the message, Follow me, from Reverend Moon. You people on the Earth! Please attend God and receive Reverend Moon's guidance. I feel that to convey this message is my mission. Please follow my message. Seek for God. He is the Parent of humankind.
