In the Heaven’s Truth Religion (Tenrikyo), the sacred book tells us that our bodies are lent to us from God.
All human bodies are things lent by God.
What thoughts are you using them? 3-41
I shall teach you step by step that mankind is God’s body.
Ponder, and look at it. 3-40
The above verses tell us that we are all part of God. God is lending us our bodies. If this is so, when we hurt others, we are hurting God; when we rape, we are raping God; and when we kill, we are killing God. Yet there are many who are unaware that they are affecting God in a major way. What does a loving God do when his children turn against him? Something to ponder about on this Easter Sunday.
