What would happen if there were no greed, arrogance, and self-love in the world? There would be no crime, no wars, no military, no courts, etc. Imagine the trillion of dollars that we can save; and use these savings to improve society. Imagine the world without hunger or poverty. Imagine the education systems throughout the world that will produce inventions and cures that the world has never known. This will be a heaven on earth.
In the Heaven’s Truth Church (Tenrikyo), the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) foretells of the day that all minds of the world will be purified of evil (greed, arrogance, and self-love). When this happens, it is predicted that mankind can live forever if she or he wanted to in a joyous world.
By this salvation given to the mind of sincerity,
you shall be freed from illness, death, and weakening. 3-99
After that, you may stay as long as you wish,
without illness, death, or weakening. 4-37
Further, after the passage of long years,
there will be no aging at all. 4-38
Imagine a world without greed, arrogance, and self-love. Can you imagine what the world will be like?
