We accept that all of the world's sacred traditions including Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Judaism, Islam and Native American teachings are held important. We also accept the Great Master Jesus and his teachings contained within the New Testament Bible, and elsewhere as "The Way Shower" and "The Son of God". Jesus is seen as the "Universal Christ" who, by his example and teachings, shows us the way to obtain the very same Chris-Consciousness he possessed.
Viewed in this way, the following words found in John 14:12, support this belief:
"I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do ever greater things than these, because I am going to the Father",
and in John 8:32
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free".
It has always been the position of the Temple of the Living God and its pastors that it is not so important what one believes about God, as long as one believes! Various classes, seminars, and other education programs have always been offered at the Temple so that students might become acquainted with the religious beliefs of others worldwide.
