Audio File   Religion achieves its highest social ministry when it has least connection with the secular institutions of society.  In past ages, since social reforms were largely confined to the moral realms, religion did not have to adjust its attitude to extensive changes in economic and political systems.  The chief problem of religion was the endeavor to replace evil with good within the existing social order of political and economic culture.  Religion has thus indirectly tended to perpetuate the established order of society, to foster the maintenance of the existent type of civilization. But religion should not be directly concerned either with the creation of new social orders or with the preservation of old ones. True religion does oppose violence as a technique of social evolution, but it does not oppose the intelligent efforts of society to adapt its usages and adjust its institutions to new economic conditions and cultural requirements. Religion did approve the occasional social reforms of past centuries, but in the twentieth century it is of necessity called upon to face adjustment to extensive and continuing social reconstruction.  Conditions ‘of living alter so rapidly that institutional modifications must be greatly accelerated, and religion must accordingly quicken its adaptation to this new and ever-changing social order.

Douglas Mayberry is a brilliant researcher of the highly complex, written in the highest human language (1924-35) recent revelations to our planet; which have now been fully litigated by the American federal court system to be in the public domain.  For over 35 years he engaged extensive, persistent, and intensive research into the claims, primarily because he just wanted to know. Discovering eternal truths can actually be ‘lived’, through his own direct experience, as to his increasingly number of probing inquiries, he furthered his research to actually be able to ‘live’ the validity of the progressive answers being revealed, finding them to be quite true; leaving him to live a far more peaceful, comfortable, purposefully enjoyable spiritual life, while living here on earth as a human being. Excited! and wanting to spread the message, it however soon became very apparent that the revelations as compiled were just too complex to simply give a full understanding.  So it was for a period spanning over 15 years that he came to analyze, categorize, and organize ‘down-stepped’ subject-related compilations for better study and review.  Enjoy!
