If you build it, they will come was one of the sayings in a popular movie; but the words also apply to the Heaven’s Truth Religion (Tenrikyo). with a few other stipulations. It is said that God descended from Heaven to show people how to live a joyous and happy life. God said, “Let there be no greed, arrogance, covetousness, miserliness, and self-love”. God promises that when these evils or dusts are swept from our minds, joy and happiness will naturally follow. How do we share these truths with others? God has given us instructions in the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki).
The first is to build a place of worship (church or fellowship). The second is to spread these truths to others. The third is to purify our own minds of these dusts. The fourth is to pray with our special prayer that God has given us, the Joyous Service. When all these requirements are met, God promises to fill our churches. If you build it, they will come.
