Hymns of Meishu-sama

 

To you who recognize that there is no God,
There is no God.
To you who recognize that there is,
God exists.

----

How foolish are those
Who say “there is no God,”
When they themselves were created by God.
O how ignorant they are!

----

I now brandish theism over my head
And smash the erroneous atheism into pieces!

Sacred Word of Meishu-sama
“Religious view on the issue of birth control”

The question is this: why on earth were humans born into the world? The world now consists of two billion people; not one of them was born by their own will.

Think: even this great planet Earth that humanity inhabits must have its center, and at the center, there has to be a governor, that is, a ruler. Who then is this “ruler” of the planet Earth? He is no other than the one who is called by the name of Lord God, Lord of Heaven or Jehovah. In short, He is the one who is absolute. Universal will is the will of this Lord God, and human society is infinitely developing by the will of this Lord God. The grandeur and splendor of the human society that is to emerge in the coming future is utterly unimaginable. Or perhaps we can envisage a fraction of the world to come. For when we look back on the path of progress we have taken until today and look at the state of today’s culture compared to primitive times from tens of thousands of years ago, the advancement we have made is truly amazing. This should give us a general idea as to what the future holds for us.

What I want to say is this: humanity and all creation are generated, formed, developed and nurtured by the will of Lord God. If so, the birth and death of a human being are also under the will of Lord God.
