It is the will and the wish of thy God, that all men become constitutionally capable of receiving and comprehending the highest light, and that they shall no longer depend upon any priest, church, oracle, or holy book, or upon consulting the spirits. (Discipline 5:15)

 

That religion is nothing more nor less than rites and ceremonies in the discipline of a community. As when an army of soldiers are in training by their captains, when certain commands and manouvers cause the soldiers to be as a unit in movement; so is religion in a community, through rites and ceremonies, made as a unit to carry out works of charity and harmony and love and righteousness.  (Eskra 29:2)

 

And as to the religion of this man, or that man; behold, it hath come to pass, that each, in his own order, performeth his rites and ceremonies and sacrifices and prayers, like a trained horse in a showman's circle, going round and round, and knowing not the meaning thereof. For it is come to pass that the religions have made machines of the worshippers; the law books have made machines of the courts; the books of government have made machines of governors and emperors.  (Eskra 33:25-26)

 

Behold, I am not for one man only, nor for one woman, nor for one book; but wherever the light of wisdom and the desire for virtue and holy deeds shine, there will my speech manifest. Is not Jehovih wide as the universe, and immutable? And to be in harmony with Him, is this not the sum of all wisdom? Therefore, if thy Lord, or thy God, hath attained to be one with the Father, and He come in dominion on the earth, with His millions of angels, who also know the higher light, and ye are inspired by them to do Jehovih's will, what discussion shall man have against heaven or its representatives? (Lords 1st 1:14-15)

 

This was also of the ancient doctrines of Zarathustra; but certain other philosophers, vain in self-knowledge, said: Can not a man worship in the soul, and without building an altar of stone and wood? And the multitude harkened unto them; and they afterward went further, and said: Why worship at all? So, they fell in darkness. A soul without an outward expression of worship standeth on the brink of hell.  To see an altar, as we pass along, enforceth upon us the thought of worship, and of Ormazd, the Creator; it leadeth the soul upward. To see evil, or the temptation of it, is to lead the soul toward darkness. Therefore, let men and women be discreet of their persons; but make the altars of sacrifice numerous. (Arc of Bon 5:15-16)

 

But now, behold, O man, I come to give a great religion, yet not to set aside the old; I come to such as do fulfill the old, and to give them the religion of Gods themselves! Saying unto them: Go save others, and no longer concern yourselves about yourselves. Go ye and provide a place of second resurrection on earth, where the people shall put away all low things and practice the all highest. And call ye out unto the Uzians to come and inherit the place with you. Nevertheless whosoever is only concerned as to the salvation of his own soul is not yet ready for the religion I give unto you. Mine shall not concern themselves as to their own self's salvation; for having faith in Jehovih, that if they raise others up, with their own wisdom and strength, they are already saved, and without fear. Compare then my second resurrection in heaven with that which thou wouldst found on earth for the glory and honor of thy Creator. (Discipline 7:15-21)

 

These are the words of Ouranothen: By Thy Light and Dominion, O Jehovih, peace and goodwill be unto all men, with faith in Thee, and forbearance toward one another for thy glory. Amen. I come not to abridge liberty, but to give more unto you, with love and wisdom, that the resurrection of men be established on earth as it is in heaven. Him that ye worship under diverse names, placing him afar off, declare I unto you in actual presence. And accord to you much praise and thanks wherein ye worship in truth, fulfilling His commandments, acknowledging there is but one God, even Jehovih. Whether ye say, Brahma, Brahma or Buddha, Buddha, or Christ, Christ, doing so in reverence to the Almighty, our Creator, practicing good works with all your wisdom and strength--therein do I proclaim your good deeds in heaven. For all of these are the Father's buildings, to bring His children into ultimate resurrection, for joy and glory within His kingdoms. Therefore come I not to take from you any of your Gods or Saviors, nor to abridge your field for righteousness, but rather to show you a greater glory in comprehending all of them in the plan of the Almighty, to reach the different peoples in all parts of the earth. Pleading with you to be charitable to one another, and more comprehensive in your judgment, putting away egotism in professing amongst yourselves that such of you alone were the favored of Jehovih. (Ouranothen 1:7)

 

But in Kosmon I shall send nor Savior, nor archangel, with a loud-sounding trumpet; but I will come to man's understanding through the light of Mine own wisdom. And man shall interpret My words as I speak to his own soul; and such shall be his sacred words. Man shall pray to Me, and speak to Me in his own way, and not according to the dictation of any man, nor priest, nor sacred book, save the book of My creations. Neither shall man longer accept any of the former revelations, and bow down unto them; for, as I was sufficient unto the ancients to speak to them things that were good for them, even so will I speak to My chosen of the Kosmon era that which is good for them also. My heavens shall be revealed unto them, as promised by My prophets of old, and man shall be taught how to see and comprehend My heavens with his own judgment, and not according to what any other man saith My revelations are. Behold, in the ancient days, I provided Saviors and rab'bahs and priests to pray for man, and confess him of his sins; but these things will I put away, and no one shall pray for the living, nor confess him of his sins, by words or signs or ceremonies. But every man shall pray for himself, in his own way, and confess his sins unto Me for forgiveness. And instead of praying in words for his brother, saying: Jehovih, help him, he shall go in person, and help him with his own hands. Neither shall man sit idly and say: O Jehovih, help Thou me; come and save me! But he shall rise up in the majesty I created him, saying: Behold me, Jehovih! I will save myself. Guide Thou me, O Father! And he shall walk forth, proudly in My sight, scorning evil and sin, doing with all his might for his own salvation. And I will come unto him, for of such shall be My chosen. In Kosmon, I shall not come to make a servant of man unto man; nor to make him afraid, when the priest speaketh. I will make man hold up his head fearlessly before men, in remembrance of his daily covenant unto Me, his Creator, in the practice of righteousness. In that day, the preacher and the priest shall be of little avail; My standard shall be of good works, and not of words. (Es 1:13-24)
