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.
While the holy books from various Spiritual Communities within the Religion of Light contain some of the words of the Third Messenger concerning the fate of certain false religions, adherents should be careful as not to condemn their fellow brothers and sisters who have been called by the Third Messenger to serve as missionaries in groups that are generally understood as being outside the Religion of Light. Some of these brethren have been instructed by the Third Messenger or the Teacher of Light to enter into these “other communities that are at the base of the mountain of truth, so as to teach those other adherents about the true Light.”
On occasion, we see brethren moving in and out of various covenants without good reason. This has been an ongoing issue, but only recently was it discussed in depth at a special meeting called to discuss a variety of topics affecting the spiritual life of the adherents of the Religion of Light.
For those brethren who are in established Spiritual Communities, it is important to note that as of 2 April 2017, switching from one covenant to another, will not be permitted without first seeking counsel from approved clergy. A valid reason will need to be provided, along with a great deal of prayer and contemplation on the matter.
If anyone within the Religion of Light, regardless of their Spiritual Community, finds that one of their appointed leaders in their or other community are causing or promoting disunity, then it is the responsibility of the brethren to bring this to the attention of that particular leader, admonishing that one, but with respect and with the desire to seek clarity.
Life in the world is very difficult. No matter if you are rich or poor, life is filled with every sort of pain and suffering. With so much violence, sickness and death in the world, it is no wonder that for ages, people have asked, “Why does God allow suffering?”

EPISTLE TO THE MANICHAEAN BRETHREN WORLDWIDE
“Three Poisons of the Evil One”
9 December 2013
Dear Brethren, Shlama lukh.
All humanity is marked as either being righteous or unrighteous according to the divine standard. There are two masters, brethren, one of the Light and one of the darkness. Il’Ya is the King of the Light, while the evil one is the king of darkness. There are those who serve God and those who serve the evil one.
