What makes your religion special?

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 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 if in the past history of the world, if people sincerely believed in this origin. There would have been no crusades, no holocaust, no slavery, and no wars. Imagine a world at peace.

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.  What do we pray for?  We pray that God helps us sweep evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our hearts.
