12 representative religious leaders(Catholic, Buddhist, Hindu, etc.) sign the agreement
“Our religious representatives and leaders are born in this era as workers for the cessation of world wars and for peace. Following the will of the Creator God, let us achieve the cessation of war and world peace and leave it as a legacy for all generations. Through the unity of religions, all religions will be one under God.”
Leaders of each religion from all over the world gathered in one place for the cessation of war and for world peace. It was a historic moment when they pledged that with the unity of religions, they would become one under God. The World Alliance of Religions Peace Agreement ceremony on the 18th at the 63 Building Convention Center Grand Ballroom decisively displayed the importance of the role of the heads of states and religious leaders in laying the cornerstone of world peace.
Representative Man Hee Lee, as a veteran of the 6/25 Korean War, experienced firsthand and knows very well the atrocities of war. Therefore, despite being 84, Representative Lee has went around the world 14 times meeting with heads of states and religious leaders, appealing to gather their hearts as one for the cessation of war. The heads of states and religious leaders who were touched by the earnestness of Representative Lee decided to work together with him by signing the peace agreement on this day.
Representative Lee stated, “The time has now come for the religious leaders to truly work for something eternal. The work of unifying religions is for the cessation of war and for world peace.”
He also said, “This is the work that the Creator God wants—the passing of a corrupted era, and the beginning of an eternal peaceful world that God is with.” With that, he requested that they be the foundation of the new era, the world of peace that God will reign over.
On this day of the peace agreement ceremony, there was the signing of the “Agreement to Propose the Enactment of An International Law” and the “Unity of Religion Agreement.” The “Agreement to Propose the Enactment of An International Law” is for the former presidents of each country as well as the supreme justices and the UN to establish the international law for the cessation of war and for world peace. The essential point is for current presidents to sign the established law for their nation, their people and for peace. The content of the “Unity of Religion Agreement” is, just as it states, pledging to join hands in the work of unifying the religions for the cessation of war and for world peace. This agreement is done before God, the people of the world and in front of the messenger of peace.
The World Alliance of Religions Peace Agreement ceremony was joined by two people from the Episcopal Church as well as from Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Shia Islam, Sunni Islam, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Candomblé, Jainism, Bahá'í Faith—11 religions and 12 representative leaders.
Following that, former and current presidents, representatives of each organization, people of the religious world and over 2,000 people signed the peace agreement, joining the peace movement of HWPL for the cessation of war and for world peace.
