Book Two - True Parents
Chapter Three - The Need for True Parents
Section 6. The True Parents are Needed Absolutely

What do the Unification Church members call me? They call me the True Parent. The words "True Parent" are fearsome words. It is also a great thing that these words exist.

Without a family that emerged from the womb of God's love as a model, no tribe, people or nation can be formed. A family expands to form a tribe, a people and a nation. Therefore, to defeat the world of the devil, we must deal with things based on the model of the true family.

Fallen people have evil parents. Your mother and father are parents within the fallen domain as well. What does this mean? It means that they are ancestors within the fallen tradition. So the fact that the term True Parents has appeared is an amazing fact.

Why do we need True Parents? The unfallen Adam and Eve should have aligned completely with the original will of God. They should have accomplished the ideal of oneness with God and established the world of love, with the unified realm of heart at the core. It would have been a cozy nest where everything can become one, where everything is certain, and where everything begins from a perfect situation.

But this realm of love has not emerged. We need True Parents in order to accomplish it.

On the day this realm of love appears in the world, the Unification Church will become obsolete. The world will not be needed either. We must put the nation and world aside and find this family. This has to happen. We must seek out this family even if we have to abandon everything. This is crucial. (138-277, 1986.1.24)

It is the True Parents whom we need. Who are the True Parents? They are people more precious than your friends or teachers. So you must follow True Parents even if you may have to abandon your friends or your teachers. You must walk this path even if your friends say, "Alas, that's it between you and me" or even if your teacher says, "I am no longer your teacher" because you go to the Unification Church. Furthermore, you must go this path even if your mother and father disown you. If you follow the path that everyone all at once can acknowledge as good, there will be a new historic beginning of heaven and earth there. (33-336, 1970.8.23)

Humankind needs True Parents. Why? For the first time in history, an event based on principles and connected to the axis of love has occurred. It is unprecedented in history, and will never be repeated in the future. This axis is one, not two. What is this axis? It is the axis of true love. The love that your mother and father share is not true love.

That is why it is written, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." This is what God has been doing. (137-107, 1985.12.24)

Why do we need True Parents? By fulfilling their individual responsibility, True Parents can expel the worldwide Satan that is clinging to individuals. By establishing the family level indemnity condition and fulfilling our responsibility, Satan can automatically be restored through indemnity.

Without accomplishing the worldwide restoration through indemnity and the individual portion of responsibility, restoration through indemnity cannot be carried out. Without getting rid of Satan through fulfilling our responsibility, restoration cannot be achieved. (137-106, 1985.12.24)

The reason we need True Parents is to bring God down to dwell on earth. This is why Parents are going through suffering on this earth. (217-354, 1991.6.12)

Why do you need True Parents? It is in order to receive the new lineage. The Old Testament Age was the age of the foundation of faith, the New Testament Age was the age of the foundation of substance, and the Completed Testament Age is the age of the new ideal. Hence, it is said that it is in the age of love where we should inherit the good lineage of the heavenly kingdom. Until now we had different blood. We inherited mixed blood.

I have inherited the original, traditional blood and so I am fighting with Satan with knowledge of all this truth. I am doing this because I know such things. True Parents are the new bud of the true olive tree. You should cut yourself off and be engrafted with the bud of the True Parents, The Parents' bud and God's bud must be engrafted. Then, your body may be cut down to nothing, but your thought becomes the same as that of God and True Parents. You will be able to give birth to the same fruit -- sons and daughters of goodness. This cannot happen in the satanic world. It is not good to have sons and daughters before this happens. (125-208, 1983.3.20)
