We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

Worth Thinking About
And, finally, the posting entitled, "The End of Church," by Diana Butler Bass offers comments on the future of religion in America. She looks for a reorganization of religion and of Christianity, noting that a large majority of Americans remain interested in spirituality and faith—but not in the conventional, traditional ways of the past. This posting, too, is worth a read and some thought. Happy Reflections!
