How did religious faith come about; why does the human being actually believe in a God, in several Gods, in idols, and in the false teachings of religions and sects, and why doesn’t this delusional faith dissolve in the current time of the extensively valuable insights of science?
Currently (2009), there are about seven and a half billion people who profess allegiance to one of six world religions or to a sect that has arisen from these. With regard to religions and sects, God has many faces. For Christians, Jews, and Muslims, he is a personified and universal Creator God, who created the world, the sky, and the universe out of chaos. The human being is considered as a God-created pinnacle, whereby at the end of time, he is promised a paradisiacal existence of man and God. The religions of Asia, however, know no face of a God, viz. no person, but rather a divine principle, a universal soul that is all-hearing, all-seeing, and all-understanding and that pervades the entire universe, thus a form that can be compared in some way to the existence of the Creation. But this does not mean that by this approximate comparison, the religious teachings of the Asian religions could be brought into harmony with the spirit teaching because these religions are also far from the Creation-given teaching of the truth, teaching of spirit, and teaching of life.
