The Sino-Japanese War broke out in 1937 and the Chundogyo group declared wholehearted supports on the war against China. As part of supports, the leaders of Chundogyo held series of lecture on the state affairs, convened prayers and organized sendoff ceremony by mobilizing the national organizations to assist Japanese aggressors. The leaders of Chundogyo did not perceived the collaborating activities as an apparent contradiction with the idea of Chundogyo only because the world vision of Chundogyo group internalized the thought. The members of Chundogyo believed that it was possible to participate in the new world order as a dominant figure only when they harmonize with the policy of Hwangminwha(皇民化) upon the Japanese victory over the world racial competition. Meanwhile, the ideas of Sungsinssangjun·Gyojungilchi (性身雙全·敎政一致) were interrelated with Hwangminwha(皇民化) thought as of pro-Japanese logic sense. Taedongbangjui(大東方主義) was adopted as a new official line while the process of pro-Japanese was continued. The idea suggested the followers not to seek only their own national existence, rather to join forces together with Japanese nation in order to protect Asian racial group from the Western infiltrators. In the same context, the final phase designated as affection for humankind·humanitarianism(人類愛·人類主義) and it proposed to overcome the discourse of nation. The prosperity of Eastern nation can be secured only if when renouncing a self-governing idea and seeking co-prosperity with Japanese nation. It would be accomplished within Naesenilche(內鮮一體) under Japanese Empire, according to the Chundogyo’s teaching. The idea required not only unconditional obedience but also demanded unlimited dedication to the state. It displayed similarities between nationalization (國民化) and the praise for nationalism(國家至上主義). Showing loyalty and acts of collaboration to the Japanese Imperialism were justified a way of practicing in social-movements. Pro-Japanese activity not only became an equivalent activity as a mere religious activity but also considered as a upright religious life.
