Dead people coming back to life (Zombies), mad scientist creating life from only one sex, and magicians walking on water. Do all these feats sound familiar? They are similar to the feats recorded in the holy books that many of us have faith in. Faith is good, but blind faith may lead one on the wrong path. The Jonestown Massacre, and the Branch Davidians are instances where blind faith led the death of innocent people. In the Tip of the Writing Brush (Ofudesaki) are the following:
This is a world constructed on reason.
So I shall press upon you everything with the reason in verse. 1-21
What we do see in the world is suffering and joy. We also see evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) and good. Can there be a relationship between these factors? Consider Causality as the “Truth of Heaven”. Consider Heaven’s Truth Church (Tenrikyo).
