Temple, the

‘we are the temple of the living god.’

March 9th 2021
A temple or a church is simply a form. Religion is the principle, this consciousness of the bond that exists between human beings and God. Those who are fixed on the form feel the need to enter a temple in order to pray and be heard by God. But those who are guided by the principle know there are temples that take other forms: all of nature, with its mountains, oceans and forests, is a temple in which they can pray. But nature is still not the best temple. There is a temple even superior to nature, and that is you yourself. It is this temple you must purify so that the Lord will come and establish his dwelling there. This is what Jesus meant when he said, ‘You are the temple of the living God.’
