Question 18

[1612] Question 18: "How can man find the true faith or also the faith agreeable to zer if ze is not informed about all the possibilities of the religious world interpretation? Is it in the interest of the religions that preferably all people are acquainted with preferably all religious conceptions that humanity has brought out?"

[1613] Answer: The religion of love recommends to figure out the most important in life and to start with this as far as possible before one devotes oneself to the less important. The orientation towards L and the life towards a life goal according to an ideal are central in it. Since one can only decide from something on cannot forbear to face up to the most important answers to the central questions of life in the different fields and hence also in the religions, if one does not bother to find answers by own thought. [1614] Everyone should decide for zerself as possible, when ze does how what where. The religion of love points up only the most important ways. The faith true and agreeable to zer is the faith for that one the decided zerself. This applies the more, the more thoroughly one attended to this issue. Since life is (still) finite in this world, one should confine oneself to a reasonable extent of involvement. Crucial is life itself with its service to L, not the getting bogged down in unnecessary details. [1615] The religion of love wants to reach as many people as possible (all is impossible), but it is not in its interest to confront them with as many religious conceptions as possible, because it heeds the right of self-determination of man and relies on that L zer have all the important information if ze deems it appropriate. The question is extended by the posing of the question, what religious conceptions of other religions are important. [1616] Important is the relevance of transcendence in the form of the divine for our world, which was created by zer according to zis plan, and the eternal life of the creatures with the return into the divine; furthermore the divine providence, the promise of salvation and the option of man to influence zis fate according to zis deeds in accordance with the principle of karma, to find the deepest cognitions in zis interior, and to be able to break them out through prayer, meditation and other techniques and to realise this way intense religious experience - also in community. [1617] Here the role of religious texts is to emphasise, whose content is not only religiously decisive, of the (religious) virtues, which should be, in contrast to the vices, held in high esteem, and of religious practice, which concretises the religious life. In addition, certain persons have a special religious function and relevance, which is to be respected, whether they are human or not. [1618] Apart from that, the deviations from other religions are to be called rather strong. This is not a valuation, since other positions may be indeed justified, even if, in the long-term, development will provide for a unity in diversity.
