 Message of Heung Jin Nim from the Spiritual World January 1
Ancestors who did not see things about others correctly and hurt them will cause their descendants to have children who are born blind, mute or deaf.
All the sins committed by ancestors are passed down to their descendants; therefore members are pushed to commit sins in spite of themselves.
The ancestors are very sincere about fulfilling their responsibility to cleanse their descendants’ sins, which, as they learned during the workshop in the spiritual world, were passed down from ancestors like themselves.
