Do Not Condemn Your Brethren

Published / by Mir Garendra

Shlama to all the dear brethren,

We often discourage individuals from entering into the houses of religion or religious institutes that are considered outside the Religion of Light, and for good reason. Adherents of the Religion of Light are quite familiar with the false teachings, darkness, scandals and atrocities that are carried out in the name of “religion.” Adherents of the Religion of Light do not wish to have anything to do with such groups, sects or cults.

A valid reason will need to be provided, along with a great deal of prayer and contemplation on the matter.

Law and Instruction

Published / by Mir Garendra

The Biblical terms for law and instruction in the Religion of Light are one and the same. The Aramaic term “Aurayta” for us means Torah/Law, and to us this means “instruction.” The same as the generic Greek term. In the Religion of Light the Law of Moses carries with it the law of love. Since they are both from divine origin (revelation), there is no distinction for us in that regard.

Unanswered Prayers

Published / by Mir Garendra

Sometimes a person will make a request in their prayers for a material object, money or something to happen to someone else — however, God always knows best; thus, sometimes a person’s petitions will not be answered in the manner the individual wished — and if he or she does not receive an answer, then patience was what the person needed all along.
