The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Fourteen: Prospects


The Founding Master continued, “There will not only be educational institutions in every district and county, but in every town there will also be erected religious centers and public halls where people will attend regular services. People will all gather there conveniently to carry out such ceremonies as coming of age, marriage, funeral and ancestral worship, special dharma meetings by dharma masters, or to hold any other meetings. Because all religious groups today are unable adequately to train their adherents, one does not for the most part enjoy special confidence for being a religious person; but, in the coming age, the edification work of all religious groups will have been sufficiently developed, so that members of every religious group will each receive substantial spiritual training, thereby naturally possessing an integrity lacking in ordinary people without training. Therefore, in selecting people for government, public office, or public-sector positions, people will definitely seek out the adherents of various religions.”
