Book Four - True Family
Chapter One - The True Family Originally Intended at the Time of Creation
Section 8. Adam's Family Should Have Set the Tradition as the True Family

If our human ancestors had not fallen, whose sons and daughters would you be? Without question you would have been born as God's sons and daughters. If Adam and Eve had not fallen, all human beings would have been God's true sons and daughters. You would not be people that are toyed with, dominated or slandered by your enemies as you are today.

The son of God has absolute power, and he represents the absolute authority and power of God wherever he goes. When a family is formed centering on this son, that family becomes God's family before which the entire cosmos should surrender. Moreover, when a tribe centered on that family comes into being, the whole of creation must safeguard that tribe and be assimilated into it. Due to the Fall, human beings not only lost their positions as the sons and daughters of God, but they are tormented by their enemies.

If the first human ancestors had not disobeyed the commandment of God and had become one with God forever, no one would be able to sever the relationship of love based on that unity. Once born as sons and daughters, and growing up as sons and daughters, no theory or doctrine could explain away or deny the father's identity. If someone were to question them about the identity of their father, even at gunpoint, they could not deny who he was. (Blessed Family - 330)

If Adam and Eve had not fallen, the first family of heaven would have been formed in the Garden of Eden, and that family would have prospered under God's sovereignty, immune to Satan's slanders. (Blessed Family - 330)

If Adam and Eve had not fallen, they would have received all of God's love. If they had united into one in God's love as the son and daughter receiving God's complete love, they would have given birth to children centering on God's love. Then, surrounded by God's true love, they would have established the traditions of the husband, of the wife, of the son, and of the daughter. If the tradition of the family based totally on God's love had been established, God's will would have been realized. (Blessed Family - 331)

By the will of God, Adam and Eve should have become perfect, received the Blessing, and, upon the basis of their family, established God's nation. They should have achieved perfection based on true love. If Adam and Eve had established their horizontal object partnership under God, the fulfillment of the purpose of creation would have been laid and that world would have extended to the cosmos. A world based on the tradition of oneness achieved through the union of Adam and Eve as husband and wife would then have been established. However, Adam and Eve disobeyed God's will and fell. (Blessed Family - 332)
