Moonies clean hospital as good deed for day

An inter-religious organisation gave up its Saturday to make life better for patients at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital, in Suva.

The Universal Peace Federation is an upgraded version of the Inter-religious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP) and is made up of followers of world peace advocate, Dr Sun Myung-Moon.

About a dozen UPF (Fiji) members were at the hospital yesterday to clean up and paint the stairwells of the old section of CWM.

A Cult of Christianity
Theologically, the Unification Church is, at best, a cult of Christianity. It does not represent historical, biblical Christianity in any way. Leader Sun Myung Moon’s theology can only be described as insane.
Given the fact that the Unification Church rejects the essential doctrines of the Christian faith, teaches heresy, and engages in unbiblical practices, Christian churches can not have unity and/or any form of cooperation with the Unification Church or its front groups.

“We offered our services to the hospital as part of our Service for Peace’ projects. We have already undertaken five similar projects since last year,” said Kenji Watanabe, the UPF (Fiji) national director.

Working under the theme Service for Peace: Creating a healthy and clean environment for the sick’, the group polished and painted hospital steps.

Known as the Ambassadors for Peace, the group in their matching T-shirts scraped away at the peeling paint of the hospital’s old wing and started applying a new coat of paint.

UPF (Fiji) national secretary Ram Dharma Nand gave an insight of the organisation, the head of which was denied entry into the country last year, following allegations the Moonies was nothing but a cult that could have an adverse effect on our youth.
