Believing in the Origin

If someone asks what makes your religion so special, what would you say? What separates your religion from all the others?

In the Heaven’s Truth Church (Tenrikyo), we believe that God created mankind to live a joyous life. It is this origin that we must firmly believe in for our prayers to be answered.

Some may ask why is it so important that we must understand why humans were created?  If we believe in the origin, it would be difficult for us to take advantage of another human being.  We will be going against God’s wishes if we pursue our happiness at the expense of others.

Imagine what would of happened in the past if people had believed in the origin. There would have been no crusades, no holocaust, no slavery, and no wars. Imagine a world at peace. Imagine people treating each others with dignity and love!

As mentioned before  for our prayers to be answered we must believe in the origin that all mankind was created to live a joyous life. But you may ask,  what do we pray for?  We pray not for our selfish gains; we pray for the salvation of others by asking God to help sweep evil  (greed, arrogance, and self love) from their hearts.

It is this belief in the origin, or the purpose in God’s creation that we must firmly believe in before we can take our first steps in our spiritual growth. These steps or path will finally lead to the salvation of all mankind.
