We are good

In some religion man is considered essentially evil. By evil, I mean having a mind of greed, arrogance, and self love. We are told that we are imperfect, and guaranteed to sin. But we are told that we are forgiven for our past and future transgressions by the death of the Son of God. Those who believe this will be guaranteed eternal life in heaven, while suffering and evil continues throughout their lives.

But in the Heaven’s Truth Church (Tenrikyo), we are told that there is no one who is essentially evil. We were originally pure in mind.

Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil.

It is only a bit of dust stuck on. 1-53

It is that the dusts of greed, arrogance, and self love have accumulated in our minds. If we are able eliminate these evils from our minds, we become pure as we were originally. This is the ultimate goal of God. When this happen, the world will all live a joyous life with everyone helping each other. Could this be heaven on earth? Do we humans have the resources to create a heaven on earth?  We ask God in our prayers to help eliminate these evils from our minds.
