In the beginning, there was……….

Someone once asked, what makes your religion different from any other. This is my answer.

In the beginning, there was God who created the earth. He saw the beauty of the earth and the universe; but there was something that was missing. He wanted to feel joy and spirited, and thus had an idea to create human beings that would live a joyous life. From the muddy oceans, he selected randomly the instruments that would become the first human beings. He selected a loach, and a serpent that would become the parents of all mankind. From the vast oceans, he selected different animals and their characteristics that would be incorporated into the first parent of mankind. It is said that God promised these instruments of creation that he would bring them back after cycles of rebirths from the early organisms of the ocean to human beings (evolution). He would then explain to them why God created mankind at a specific time and location. This is where and when our religion originated. Our mission is to tell the world why God created mankind. God has created mankind to live a joyous life with everyone helping each other.

It is this act of God randomly selecting the instruments of creation that makes our religion different from other religion. It could have easily been you or me that was swimming in the early ancestral pool of the muddy oceans.  To God, everyone is his or her child. There are no favorites. There is no hierarchy when it comes to God. Every one is equal in the eyes of God.

It is this equality of each human being, and the potential for everyone to live a joyous life that our religion introduces to the world. God created human beings to live a joyous life. Our religion explains how to live a joyous life.
