Thought Adjuster: “How refreshing it would be today to find an honest religious teacher who simply tried to enlighten the truth for his followers, without seeking the exaltation of his material ego, personal benefit, or simply the exploitation of others. In the past, there have been few honest teachers of truth. Most religious leaders pretend to control those they intend to save, stifling their free will, something that not even the Father dares to contradict.
For this reason, many in this generation consider religion as just another attempt to deceive them. It is common among those who dare to think independently to reject religion as it has been promoted by the lowest impulses of its leaders. These original and courageous minds could be inspired by a religion declaring that personal differences are accepted and necessary, and that the search for truth is a personal experience between a human being and her creator.
Once religious teachers abandon their ideas about control and put the responsibility of achieving eternal life in the hands of their listeners a true religious rebirth will take place in this world. A religion of personal salvation, attained by the effort of being better each day, would inspire human beings to launch themselves courageously into the adventure of achieving perfection and self-mastery.
And only those religious teachers who live a true personal religious experience will be capable of teaching the dynamic truths of progressive revelation that will inaugurate a new religion, filled with vitality and great potential for the civilization of Urantia. This is a religion like the one Michael tried to leave us but we could not adopt at the time. Let people discover that the tools to build their own reality in this world and beyond are within themselves, and that they have access to the source of all wisdom – the loving presence of the Father in their hearts and minds.”
