Today, we are divided into races, religions, ethnic groups, cultures, and nationalities. There seems to be no end in sight to the divides, and no one, so far, has been able to propose a successful formula to unite humanity.
As we enter the 21st century and new millennium, the hope for a new world and new beginning is peaking in the hearts of our generation. The question is: In this divided world, how can true peace be realized? The answer must be a messianic one, because all other means have been tried, without success.
What is the messianic soultion? Answer: Advancing the vision of "One Family Under God". How so? Because, as stated above, this was God's original ideal, His plan for humankind, His dream for His Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Is this not what Jesus came to establish? Yes.
Can "one family under God" be realized by a compromise of the world's religions? In short, the answer is, 'no'. A compromise among the world's faiths cannot lead to true unity. Only the true love of God and the practice of fraternal love among brothers and sisters of the world can realize true and lasting oneness.
To return to our original position before God, from our present fallen state, we must follow the path laid out by God through His Messiah. The Messiah comes as the restored or true Adam (and Eve), establishes himself as the true Son of God, Savior, True Parent and Lord. He is able to lay the conditions and guide us along the path through which fallen humankind can be restored as God's true sons and daughters.
Adherents from all religions, races and cultures can therefore be connected to God's original love, thus realizing the common parentship of God and the true brotherhood of humankind. This process will mark the maturing and harvesting of the world's religions for lasting world peace and the establishment of the original ideal. With this deeper spiritual understanding, we are therefore able to appreciate that we truly belong together as "One Family Under God."
