In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) , it is said that our bodies are God’s possession, and it is the mind or conscious that we are free to use as we wish. God gives us freedom to use our minds to use our bodies that has been loaned to us.
I shall teach you step by step that mankind is
God’s possession (body). Ponder, and look at it. 3-40
This mankind, you are all part of God
Our bodies are all lent to us by God. 6-120
But how are we using our mind? There are people today who have been corrupted with evil (greed, arrogance, and self love). Their minds cause them to damage their bodies, but also the bodies of others. They are damaging God’s possessions; they are hurting God. For those who kill or cause suffering in the name of God, you are not only hurting mankind, you are killing God.
