Question 10

[1544] Question 10: "What is the 'salvation' of man? The training and utilisation, as accomplished as possible, of zis abilities and the best possible fulfilment of the individual and societal tasks time sets zer, or the concentration on those talents and virtues that bring zer in touch with the 'other reality' and prepare for this? Is it primarily important that man unremittingly endeavours to recognise the salvation truths of zis religion, or is it more important that ze behaves in zis life according to the ethical demands of zis religion?"

[1545] Answer: Life consists in every world of ups and downs, since an incessant increase to a highest bliss must block out too many parts of reality. Happy life consists in the experience of diversity swinging around the middle between the extremes in the intense relationship with L. Since perfection is also an extreme (limiting diversity), which is not possessed even by L, it is in the religion of love not aimed at. [1546] Salvation is the outcome of the best possible service to L, since any effort is rewarded by the optimal furtherance and demand through L. The more holistically one applies oneself and the more intensively one turns to the most important problems and goals, the earlier one is successful. One outgrows zis abilities according to zis effort. One fulfils the individual and societal tasks of zis time best possibly. [1547] The relationship with L is so intense that there is not an alternative, but that both intertwiningly lead to an optimal overall result. The salvation truths of the religion of love are summarised in its sole commandment, from which all other ones result. Therefore, there is no need for unremitting endeavours to recognise them. By concentrating on the most important at a time, a losing of oneself in many details becomes superfluous. [1548] Although the behaviour in accordance with the ethical demands of the major religion of love is more important, ethics is, albeit an important part of the religion of love, itself only one field among others, altogether far more comprehensive ones. The question is extended by the posing of the question in which fields the salvation is obtained. Leading are the questions "How is the relationship with L to build up?" (relationship with L), "What are the rules in universe?" (divine order), "What can be said about L?" (doctrine of L). [1549] The doctrine of the faith is determined by them. The question "How is to judge and act within the divine order?" determines ethics. The question "How is religion practically to form?" determines the practice with the three branches pastoral care, conveyance of the faith and institutions. The neighbour sciences (religious studies, psychology, sociology, philosophy and pedagogy) are other important fields. [1550] Research completes the theology. Moreover, salvation can be achieved also in other sciences and fields of action. To stress is the political field or science, which is to improve the living conditions. Without exception, the way to salvation is open to any person, since L prefers or disadvantages nobody. It is ultimately the diversity of that what is, which allows everybody for salvation. [1551] Who internalises and lives the commandment of the religion of love, also cannot miss the salvation. Who does not live it, misses it, depending on the extent of zis deviation. The service to L is necessary, since it, applied to the entirety of the creatures, is only measured with their standards and not with the ones of L, which lie above the former ones. One else remains too far behind that what is to accomplish, and this has negative effect on the salvation, and be it in the subsequent world.
