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.

No Room for Me

Not the least of my problems is that I can hardly even imagine what kind of an experience genuine, self-authenticating religious experience would be.  Without somehow destroying me in the process, how could God  reveal himself in a way that would leave no room for doubt?  If there were no room for doubt, there would be no room for me.
