The Seoul, Gyeonggi and Southern branches of the HWPL held the fourth round of the Suwon WARP Office Meeting Interfaith Dialogue, which strongly demonstrated their commitment to world peace measures and religious unity. Leaders of the three religions, Cheondogyo, Buddhism, Christianity attended as the panel to discuss the topic of the issue, “Peace.”

The questions were: ‘Is there a record of peace in the annals?’ and ‘What role should I play as a religious leader for the sake of world peace?’ The panel had heated debates based on each of the statements.

A Cheondogyo leader said “As a religious leader, we should not perceive each other as “wrong” and can coexist and symbiosis from mutual respect.”

A leader of Buddhism said “The teachings of the Buddha towards peace are the basis of Buddhism. Charity is unconditional love and sharing and companionship, and the attitude of respect for the life of the unknown, as explained in the first law of Buddha’s reign, will lead to peace.”

The Christian minister quoted the Bible as saying, “Peace is the restoration of the global village to its original form, where all mankind created by God is saved and free from death and pain.”

The HWPL’s Seoul and Gyeonggi Eastern branches had a heated debate among the “Buddhist, Confucian and Christian” promoters. This is the 23rd Seoul WARP Office.

Question is “Is there a case in your scripture that one truth is interpreted in many ways?”

The Christian panel said, “It is the present reality of Christianity that the interpretation of the Bible is rampant. The reason for this much interpretation is God’s concealment of his future, which is difficult to interpret. When the Holy Spirit tells us the truth, we can see the true meaning of it.”

The Buddhist panel said “This place is so beautiful and blessed.” And the Confucian panel said “I’m really surprised that the HWPL WARP Office has reached its 23rd anniversary. I was grateful to be with young people and I should have studied more ways to implement the truth, but I’m sorry for the lack.”

On June 15th, with the theme of “About the Beginning of Man”, “The 6th Inter-Continental World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office Meeting” was held to discuss religious teachings on human life written in scriptures through YouTube by religious representatives from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, and Zoroastrianism.

Regarding the importance of interfaith dialogue based on scriptures, Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL says, “Many conflicts bring the destruction of our globe. Wars and conflicts must come to an end in order to achieve peace, but wars break out more frequently because of religion. It is said that God had creation not to kill, so there should be zero conflict caused by religion. This is why religious leaders become one for peace.”

Also, one pastor said “The founder of religion should not teach from his own knowledge but on the basis of the which the person has received from heaven.”

What is required is to think about how to make people as human being and teach the values of human being. It can be establishing religious studies in schools and build programs regarding human development together with spiritual enhancement,” said Mr. Kumarn.

Chairman Jakubauskas, regarding the responsibility for the peace movement, stated, “Religious leaders, of course because they are the leaders of their community, so they have to more effortlessly for their achievements of these goals. They have to teach their communities and of course they themselves have to meet with other religious leaders to find the solution for the problems in the world. So, the biggest problem is to try to find solution for how to stop conflicts and wars in the world.”

Actually, the alliance of religious leaders pursued by HWPL is greatly engaging many religious leaders in this world. Because in all of the world, in every country, many religious leaders gathered at one place and they are working together as one family.

I think this event [will have] a very good result in the future in this world. I think I met so many different religious leaders, because I knew a few religious leaders in Sri-Lanka in Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism before, but when I attended the HWPL WARP Summit, I could meet more religious leaders, discussing and talking with each other about how everyone wants to be happy and wants to be at peace. I acknowledge that HWPL is doing great in this part. I am also very happy to join the HWPL peace work so I try to do my best and make commitment for bringing forth peace with HWPL.”

Profound questions at the crossroads of life and death

At the crossroads of life and death

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Profound questions at the crossroads of life and death religions Protestantism Muslim lung cancer Irreligion Hinduism George Bernard Shaw crossroads of life and death Catholicism Buddhism Beware of false knowledge Atheism   “It would be better to live long~ But this year, our old man is dead. I should be dead~” One grandmother, terminally ill with lung cancer(Stage 4) said. I’m a medical student. Since doctors stood at the crossroads of life and death, It seems to think more about ‘death‘. Anyone, who are sentenced to death by disease, has no choice but to sob deeply. Frankly, the death is difficult to deal well with for whoever. When I stay at patient’s room, I can see all kinds of religions, Buddhism, Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Muslim, Atheism, Irreligion. They are so in fear of death. But I’m helpless. I can’t help them. I only can prolong their life for a few year. Everything is because of ‘Ignorance‘.

Beware of false knowledge

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Profound questions at the crossroads of life and death religions Protestantism Muslim lung cancer Irreligion Hinduism George Bernard Shaw crossroads of life and death Catholicism Buddhism Beware of false knowledge Atheism     The reason we are enveloped by fear for death is ‘Ignorance‘. Not only we didn’t know death well, but also we didn’t really think about it. You can think “What can I do if everything I believed is wrong?” or you want to believe you’re right. But you must keep in mind “Beware of false knowledge. It is more dangerous than ignorance.“, George Bernard Shaw said. If you know exactly, the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32) You can feel relieved. In the Christian world now, everyone knew that ‘If people die, immediately they live in heaven or hell forever.’ Have you ever have a question? If so, what should our ancestors who died before the spread of the Christian faith do? It is so unfair. Is it God unfair? Nope. Maybe, I’m wrong.
