[Regarding Chairman’s Sentencing from the First Trial]

 [Regarding Chairman’s Sentencing from the First Trial] We welcome the court’s decision that found Chairman Lee innocent of the charge regarding the Infectious Disease Control and Prevention Act. However, we find the court’s decision that acknowledged criminality in other charges, including embezzlement, deeply regrettable and disappointing. For the charges that have not been ruled innocent, we plan to actively prove his innocence through the appeals process, and stand trial before a court of law once again. On a separate note, we promise to continue in our effort to end the COVID-19 pandemic, and diligently serve as light and salt of the world. Lastly, we apologize to the citizens of this nation for causing worries and concerns regarding this matter.   13 January 2021 The General Assembly Headquarters Shincheonji Church of Jesus

Wise Question 1. How can you prove God’s existence? How can you prove God’s existence?

Wise Question 1.  How can you prove God’s existence?  Why doesn’t God clearly reveal himself? Seeing oneself is evidence of God’s existence.  God does not reveal himself to people because God and men have become enemies. There are two kinds of gods or spirits:  God the creator, who is life, and an evil spirit, who is a created being. Each kind of god has a ‘parent-god’ and a ‘child-god’. The god who exists within a person is the ‘child-god’. A person (body) is like the house for a god. A god is a spirit and the soul is life. Even if the god leaves, a person is still able to breathe and live because he has a soul. However, when both the god and the soul leave, that person dies. However, even when the body dies, the spirit is still alive. We cannot know God if we do not know about religion. Man (Adam), who was created and the ‘child-god’ of the Creator (Acts 17:29), became a living spirit after receiving the breath of life (Gn 2).  However, as a result of receiving the evil spirit of the

0301 Letter of Appeal to Political Leaders

Letter of Appeal to Political Leaders (English, Spanish , French , German and Japanese are available to read below.) We have an earnest request to political leaders including the members of the ruling and opposition parties, and the heads of local governments.  Shincheonji Church of Jesus has submitted the list of entire congregation home and abroad as well as that of students in accordance with the request of the public health authorities. Currently, the staff of Shincheonji is working hand in hand with each public health center to conduct a complete enumeration survey on all the members via phone calls. However, some local governments are speaking of filing lawsuits against Shincheonji claiming there are issues related to the lists.  The alleged charges include cases where the list of Shincheonji congregation, which the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) gave to local governments, omitted information on minors from the list; the time lapse between the
