The Family is a christian cult formerly known as the Children of God and The Family of Love. This group was somewhat famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This group is the primary focus of this website.

In an attempt to deflect public concern over some of his more controversial policies, founder and leader David Berg decided in early 1978 that some deception was in order. In his letter The "RNR"! (ML 650:28), he declared:

Let's also try to get away from being called the "Children of God" where that name is hated, and simply call ourselves the new Family of Love!

Berg's orders were quickly implemented, and The Family entered a new phase.
