    Thank you Tyler!

    Thank you for your question.

    Yes, an infected body eventually dies. The notion of force, or power, is not inimical to the Principle of Creation. Separation (“repulsion”) is part of the original principle, but the spiritual and physical realms of social life, i.e. “church” and “state,” are meant to harmonize. Individual rights and privacy are protected, and perfected, by true love in the family, which is the source of all godly social power.

    If that is your interpretation of John 4, mine obviously differs.

    Best always,

    With respect, what if the “infection” ends up being the “police force,” “family,” or “Cheon Il Guk” itself. The institutions themselves? Will they voluntarily “eliminate” themselves?

    Isn’t the whole notion of “force” contrary to the Principle of Creation?

    Isn’t the separation of church and state authorities very important?

    How will individual privacy and rights be protected from these institutions?

    Thank you for your consideration of my questions.


    If the writer of the Gospel of John used Jesus speaking of “living water” as a metaphor, isn’t the woman also speaking of the water as a metaphor? The Old Testament water vs. the New Testament water?

    Wouldn’t the “five husbands” be the five books of Moses?

    Wouldn’t the woman herself be a metaphor?
