   The SECOND purpose of religion is to develop a realization of the divinity in man. The root-meaning of the word “religion”— to bind back—refers to man’s basic oneness with the Deity. Man IS a divine being, ~‘created in the image of God,” the spiritual image, that is! Religion sees in the Deity (God) a universal, all-embracing Being of abstract perfection. To “bind back” to Him implies man’s inner urge, his spiritual quest for his own perfection and resultant return to God. To achieve this he needs the experiences of many lives (incarnations) on earth. The “Laws of Nature,” all of which are divine laws, aid him in his unfoldment toward perfection. Among these laws one principle is fundamental: “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Gal. VI.7)

 

Why Religion Today?


RELIGION IS A MEANS TO AN END. AS SUCH, IT MAY BE SEEN TO HAVE A DUAL PURPOSE.
