- The purpose of this paper is to compare Monk Seongcheols sudden enlightenment and sudden cultivation and Ock Soo Park Salvation Sect(Good News Mission)s salvation thought and analyze the salvation thought critically. Park argues that people dont need the process of sanctification such as repentance and service because they is fully redeemed if they realize the mystery about the forgiveness of sins he speak of. And after the believers of Good News Mission become convinced of salvation, they are naturally the perfect children of God and live by observing all the laws. Such a thought is similar to that of Seongcheols sudden enlightenment and sudden cultivation, which claims that perfect enlightenment and cultivation occur immediately and simultaneously. But there are also differences between Seongcheols thought and Parks. While Seongcheol asserts the people should break all faith and conviction for ultimate awakening, Park insists that the believers are fully saved by faith in the doctrine of the salvation of forgiveness and that day is the day of salvation of them. They should never doubt their faith and think of themselves as sinners after the date of salvation because acting like that is an unredeemed evidence. (According to him, the people of the established church say that they are convinced of salvation, but they are not truly saved because they continue to repent.) Such a teaching of the salvation sect is more likely to make the life of the believers not to be free, but to become more confined to the conviction of salvation.
