I react(ed) negatively when I hear the word religion. So much seems untrue about every religion that I know about. I shuddered at being identified with a religion – everybody would know that I accept something as true or believe in something that is obviously not true.
Recently I got a new perspective – religion can be true: actually, it is required to be true if it wants to explain the world. In other words, for a religion to be true, the following has to be true:
- That which is true and
- Does not contradict science and
- Which cannot (yet) be proven by science
- Plus all of science
I never thought I would come across such a religion, but after listening to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, every statement of the “The Way of the Livingness” that I have heard has either been:
- True as far as I can empirically test it, or it
- Does not contradict science, though often expands on science
- Either cannot yet be proven by science or
- Has been proven by science.
In other words, “The Way of the Livingness” has been, in my nine years of experience, a vast expansion on science. One of the consequences is that The Way of the Livingness is full to bursting of ideas for scientific study. Like string theory in physics it is a grand unifying theory but – unlike string theory – The Way of the Livingness creates a huge amount of testable hypotheses.
