The important question is, what is God's essence? It is love. It is not love that seeks to be served, but love that seeks to serve.

“What is the foundation of God’s existence? Is it His omniscience? Is it His omnipotence, or His absolute authority? If He were alone, what would be the point of absolute authority? The important question is, what is God’s essence? It is love. It is not love that seeks to be served, but love that seeks to serve.“

Additional Sun Myung Moon Quotes
“As far as I know, God is not sectarian. He is not restricted by minor details of doctrine. We should quickly liberate ourselves from theological conflict which results from blind attachment to doctrines and rituals, and instead focus on living relationships with God. In my view, we urgently need to purify the religious atmosphere into one in which believers can have living faith and every soul can communicate with God. In God’s parental heart and His great love, there is no discrimination based on color or nationality. Today God is trying to embrace the whole of humankind as His children. Through inter-religious dialogue and harmony we should realize one ideal world of peace, which is God’s purpose of creation and the common hope of humankind.”
–Sun Myung Moon [Wilson, Andrew, editor. World Scripture II. Universal Peace Federation, 2011, p. 396 (Sun Myung Moon (135:221, 11/16/85)].
“Great forgiveness is possible when you have understood the other person’s situation one hundred percent. Because God knows our situations, He forgives us.”
–Sun Myung Moon [2:220, May 26, 1957].
