Seances And The Rev. Moon
In today’s labyrinth of different doctrines and strange eclectic religions,
sects and cults, one can be hard pressed to know who has the truth and speaks
for God — assuming the un-Christian doctrine that one does not believe the
Scriptures are God’s infallible word to mankind.
Such people are truly like a ship without a rudder in the midst of a roaring
sea ready to perish! (Eph. 4:14).
During one of Jesus’ debates with the Jews, He said: “He that is of God
heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God,”
The Greek word used for “hear” in this verse has the sense of “obey” and is
thus translated in many NT passages. So, someone who says that they are “of
God” and are “sent from Him,” had better obey the words of God (i.e. the
When Jesus said, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,” (Matt. 7:20),
this is what He was referring to.
The above introduction poignantly elucidates the dark spiritual state of Rev.
Sun Myung Moon. Why? Because it is a well-known fact that he has participated
in seances conducted by a spirit transmedium named Arthur Ford (a famous
Philadelphian necromancer, or one who inquires of the dead).
Ford’s “spirit guide” first spoke of Moon on November 2, 1964, then again on
March 18, 1965 and on April 21, 1965, (Unknown But Known, p. 121).
Moon was present at this last seance and his comments were tape recorded and
The spirit guide’s name is Fletcher and he is supposed to be the spirit of
someone who died years ago. Some of the doctrines that this spirit guide
1) “There was no Christ 2,000 years ago — there was a man 2,000 years ago
through whom the Anointed One was able to manifest.” (Transcript, p. 1)
2) “The world has known many saviors (Ibid, p. 10).
3) “There is no truth — never has been any truth — once and for all
delivered to the saints,” (p. 11).
4) “God has never had anything to reveal to man except these two things: that
God is and that Man is a part of the Divine Creation. And what God is every
man is in the process of becoming.” (Ibid).
To anyone who “hears the words of God” found in the Holy Writ, it is blatantly
clear that the above teachings are “doctrines of demons!” (I Timothy 4:12).
Considering the above, it is not surprising that this same spirit guide would
strongly endorse Rev. Moon and that Moon would readily accept such an
endorsement as coming from God.
Here are some statements given during the seance: Col. Pak (an associate of
Rev. Moon’s): In other words, Sun Myung Moon will remain the channel through
whom God speaks? Fletcher: Yes, that’s right. Col. Pak: You mean that one
Spirit of Truth is the Christ, now reincarnated in Sun Myung Moon? Fletcher:
I would not say that he is reincarnated — because the spirit of Truth can
incarnate. Col. Pak: Just incarnate? Fletcher: Yes. That does not mean
necessarily the historical Jesus… Col. Pak: In other words, the Spirit of
Truth is incarnated in Sun Myung Moon. Fletcher: And it may be incarnated in a
dozen other people.
In consulting this transmedium, Arthur Ford, Moon has violated many scriptural
warnings which plainly proclaim God’s stern disapproval of any contact with
mediums (Lev. 19:31; Deut 18:9-14).
It is therefore obvious that Rev. Moon does not revere, nor hear, the words of
In these last days, we must especially take heed to the words of Jesus in the
Sermon on the Mount: “Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their
fruits (Matt. 7:15, 16a).
Please pray for those souls who are blinded by Rev. Moon’s Unification Church.
