Children of God


The Family International (2004–present) is an American new religious movement founded in 1968 by David Brandt Berg.  The group has gone under a number of different names since its inception, including Teens for Christ, The Children of God (1968–1977), The Family of Love (1978–1981), or simply The Family (1982–2003).

Former members have accused TFI of being an authoritarian cult which engages in the systematic physical and sexual abuse of children, resulting in lasting trauma among survivors.  The group has also been accused of targeting vulnerable people.
