What Is the Purpose of Life?
Create a life you love,
that God always wanted you to have
The True Olive Trees
We read in the Bible, in the book of Genesis, about the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that grew in the Garden of Eden. These two trees symbolize the perfect father and mother. Originally, the human ancestors, Adam and Eve, perfect and having nothing to do with the Fall, were to have been the roots of humankind. Having grown from those roots, all people were destined to live in the kingdom of heaven on earth. After death, they would have passed on to the kingdom of heaven in heaven and lived there eternally.
God's purpose of creation is for humanity to form a single God-centered family, in which all would be kin. Fallen human beings are wild olive trees, stemming from wild roots. They need to receive a graft from the true olive trees, True Parents, and be reborn as true human beings. By so doing, humanity can realize the world according to God's ideal of creation, the eternal ideal kingdom of heaven that should have sprouted from the Garden of Eden. The hope of humanity is to receive the True Parents, adopt the good traditions of their God-centered family, hand them down generation after generation, and thus build a united world of one language, one culture and one sovereignty of God.
God's only begotten Son and Daughter
God's hope for Adam and Eve was that they would grow, reach perfection and form a true family. This is what He originally intended at the time of the Creation. God created Adam as His only begotten Son and Eve as His only begotten Daughter. With absolute love He invested everything in them, and in them He placed all His hopes.
However, they fell; so in their place God sent Jesus as His only begotten Son. According to the order in which He had created Adam and Eve, God planned to restore Adam first and then to restoreEve through Adam. Hence, first God sent Jesus as the Second Adam to take the place of the First Adam, and then Jesus was supposed to find the original Second Eve and join with her, becoming husband and wife. Had they succeeded in this, they would have become the True Parents, the good first ancestors of humanity.
Freedom from Original Sin
Adam and Eve, the first ancestors of humanity, fell when they succumbed to Satan's temptation. They ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thus committing the originalsin. The original sin was an illicit sexual relationship. This sin defiled God's lineage. Instead of passing down God's love through the ensuing generations, they multiplied descendants through Satan's false love.
In the Bible, the Gospel of Matthew records the genealogy of Jesus Christ. It preserves a record of how in his lineage, among the descendants of the fallen Adam, good and evil were separated and goodness advanced. It records how, during the 4,000-year history of the providence of restoration through indemnity, the blood connection to Satan was severed in that lineage, in order that Jesus could be born as God's only begotten Son.
Thus, Jesus at birth had nothing to do with original sin. He came to this world to receive his Bride and become the True Father, so that they could take the position of True Parents. They were to give birth to children free from original sin, and also to give rebirth to fallen human beings and remove their original sin. Instead, however, Jesus died on the cross due to the disbelief of the people of Israel. Still, he left with the promise that he would come again and complete the work he had left unfinished.
Therefore, the Returning Lord, who comes as the Third Adam, inherits Jesus' foundation. This allows him to start out from the position of the Messiah and from there to attain the position of the True Parent. When he does so, he can fulfill the mission of completing God's ideal of creation.
In the beginning, a woman first committed sin. Therefore, the Holy Spirit, a feminine spirit, must come to the world as an actual woman and cleanse that sin.
