Because of the Fall of the First Ancestors, We Lost Our Nation

How important is life on this earth? It only comes to you once. It is but an instant and it comes only once. Earthly life is but a dot compared to eternal life. It is too short. However, this is not the important point. What is important is that you use the short time you have in your physical life to prepare for the spirit world. With this kind of core thinking, you must be able to stand in the center and control and subdue everything. Without doing so, you cannot perfect yourself. (207-99, 1990.11.1)

The Unification Church teaches the heavenly law that dictates that we were born for the sake of others and we must follow the path of living for the sake of others. (133-16, 1984.7.1)

Section 6. The Meaning of the Words True Parents

6.3. The words True Parents are amazing words

    Because of the Fall of the first ancestors, we have lost our hometown. We have also lost our nation and the world. Furthermore, we have lost God and even God’s love. The beginning point through which we can regain all these vast and remarkable things is the True Parents.
    What is the purpose of the providence God has been pursuing in history until now? It is True Parents’ standard. For what has humankind been going through the history of indemnity since the Fall? It was in order to find True Parents. This is the reason countless Christians have been longing for the day of hope and waiting for the day of the Second Coming. This is also the reason that countless religions are all longing for this day. In view of this, True Parents’ birth is a fearsome and amazing event.
    You like going to your hometown because your parents and brothers and sisters are there. You miss your hometown because it is where the love that is connected with your parents is found. It is the nation that embraces such a hometown, the nation where such love of hometown can be connected. People call this nation their homeland. In general, this is what we call a homeland.
    So, from the standpoint of original love, we have had neither a hometown nor a homeland, neither in the past nor in the present. Even if it exists, it is related to evil and has nothing to do with us. It has nothing to do with the quality of trueness. (67-226, 1973.6.27)

    The words True Parents that we use in the Unification Church are amazing. Whereas the false parents fell through satanic love, True Parents rise through God’s love. Thus, they march toward the world of love. Then, why do we try to find this love? Love is a great thing. In love, all are eternally equal. If you just hear the word love, you will be qualified at once to participate in any occasion no matter how lofty. (144-241, 1986.4.25)

    The Unification Church speaks about True Parents. These are amazing words. Who are the True Parents? Since false parents appeared, True Parents must appear. What do True Parents have to do? They must rectify the tainted lineage that forms the root of the satanic world, turn the resulting deviated life around, and correctly reopen the path of love that has gone the wrong way. (169-37, 1987.10.4)

    Although I am not handsome, I have an unchanging hope and that is to pursue God’s will. The standard of that ideal purpose and the point at which it is achieved is the True Parents. Then, what is the fulfillment of God’s will? What is the completion of the ideal of creation? For Adam and Eve to realize the ideal of love and stand as parents in the realm of direct dominion is the ideal standard. This is where God’s will is accomplished.
    You should know how remarkable it is that I have come to this earth with the name of the True Parent.
    The words True Parents! These words are the most blessed of all words in the world. For fallen people, the words True Parents are words of the highest value, higher than finding their nation or even the world after losing it. These words are more precious than anything in heaven and earth. (127-220, 1983.5.8)
