If we do not know True Parents then we cannot know who we are as True Children. “True Parents are the starting point.”
“What on earth are true parents? They are the starting point from which true, ideal love can finally spark following the creation of the universe. This is why we call them true parents. Then, what kind of children should true parents have? True children. What kind of children are true children? They are the sons and daughters who have enough internal and external beauty to receive the first love of the true parents.
What is the meaning of the term True Parents that we use in the Unification Church? God has appointed True Parents. What does this mean? It means that God’s love has finally settled in the human world. It means that True Parents are the starting point.
Who are the True Parents? As Adam and Eve were to become absolutely one based on the love whose core is God’s love, they were to be our first ancestors at the beginning. You need to know this clearly. Without knowing the True Parents, you will not be able to know true children.”
