Laodicea 8

It is said that religion is the true root of all evil. This is and is not the case. There is a lot of truth that is found in religion, but there are also a lot of things about religion that are not useful at all. Epochalism provides people an opportunity to advance over religious teachings and religious ceremonies. There are a lot of things about the current teachings of religion that are wholly false and lie to the people about the way in which this world truly is. The…

The End 1

Let’s face it, there is a lot of misery in the world. There are a lot of things that this world and our society is going through right now and it seems like there is nothing that we can do about it. Even among the wise, there are many of us who would just rather sit by and do nothing and cry as the world goes to the dumps. There is a lot that we as a society go through and there is seemingly nothing that we can do about…

Confirmation

Confirmation is the final part of the process of purification. Even though it is a separate sacrament and done at a separate time, it is a profession of faith in the covenant after one completely understands the tenets of the covenant and all that is required of you. It is a mere statement, but that also means that you are commiting yourself to something that is deeper. There are a lot of things in the Epochalist tradition that are very complex and it requires sometimes years of study. It is…

Purification

The first step in a life in the Epochalist mindset is the idea of purification. This sacrament is a commitment to the Covenant and the idea to uphold all of the things that the covenant says that you should think about and act. It is the outward sign of an inward change that will take place for what should be the rest of your life. At that point, there is not  lot that you have to do, but it is about a mindset that you need to maintain if you…

Repentance

Repentance is a touchy subject in this day and age. There are many who think that they do no wrong in the world and that it is all about their happiness. The reality is that we are bound to be hurt and to hurt others at some point in time in our life. The meaning of repentance comes in the idea that we need to forgive others and to be forgiven by them as well. This is not a personal plea to rid yourself of something evil in the eyes…

New Thought 12

Humanity will go through cycles of history. History moves in a linear as well as a cyclical manner. We are undergoing a major change in which a lot of people are starting to see a higher level of consciousness and they are starting to see the light. For most of written history, religions of the world have put forth a dark future that is in process of happening right now. However, after this time of darkness we will go into the light. This is something that has happened before, but…

Faith

What does faith mean? Faith is not what we think it is. Faith has a more influential place in our life beyond religion. Religious faith is a blind faith based on things that are not seen in life. We cannot have faith in something that we do not even understand. When people say that they have faith in God, they cannot define god so they cannot define what it is that they actually have faith in. This is unlike faith in things like love or the sun. These things are…

Anthem 146

The covenant is so good that it is worthy of being passed from generation to generation. The covenant is worth passing down from the beginning of time by the divine plan. When you die, everything you do in life will not be worth anything and even your body is brought back to the dust of the earth. There is no trust for the wisdom of the world in the face of the divine plan and the truth that comes with it. Justice comes to those in life who are poor…
