Some people believe that our religion is the ultimate and final religion that will save the world. But why does church membership not increase? Why does God not help bring new people into our churches? In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), it is said that God will begin to work, but there are no places, or people to convey God’s truth. The following is from the Book of Prophecy:
Though I desire to go forth quickly,
I cannot go out because there is no path. 2-13
This path I wish to make quickly,
but there is no place else to open it. 2-14
What do you think this talk is about?
I am hastening for the places where God’s truth is conveyed. (Need churches to teach the prayer) 2-16
Why do we need churches? What would happen if God begins to work his blessing, but no one understands these blessings when they are revealed? We need people that have true sincerity, have the courage and commitment to spread God’s truths and explain these blessings. God’s truth conveys a path that leads to a joyous life.
God’s “Path” involves the following sequences to complete. (1) The process of purifying one’s mind of evil (greed, arrogance, and self love), (2) praying (Joyous Service) with true sincerity to save others, (3) receiving God’s blessings of potential new members to save, and (4) teaching them God’s truth so they can live a joyous life.
Ponder over why the path does not go to completion, and then ponder why church membership does not increase. Where is the obstruction in the path?
This path if you truly think about it
ponder over it from your innermost heart. 2-15
This path initiates with the true sincerity (without greed, arrogance, and self love) of the individual. This is the” Key “to our special prayer. When God accepts our sincerity, he brings individuals to our churches so we can heal them, and conveys God’s truth. God has given us this special prayer to save others; but the sincere mind (key) may not yet have formed to initiate and complete our special prayer. Remove greed, arrogance, and self love from our minds.
