The Religious Necessity of
Community

 

There is no such thing as true religion without
community. The sacred community is the necessary theatre
wherein true religious responsibilities and activities can
take place.

Over time, religious understanding and responsibilities
tend to become abstracted and dogmatized, so that religion
is made to seem to be a merely personal or private endeavor.
Thus, popular religion tends to be deficient as a true
culture.

The State, or the broad plane of politics and economics,
is a secular domain. When the people become tied exclusively
to the secular environment of the State, they become
fragmented into a mass of mere individuals, controlled by
great political and economic forces. Therefore, religion
must function not only as the Teaching of ultimate spiritual
Realization. It must become the working foundation of right
human relationships. The Teaching of religion must become
the foundation of human acculturation. That is, religion
must become the instrument whereby individuals create a
cooperative order, a union of human communities.

Popular religion tends to create an institutional order,
but it generally fails to create a free cooperative order or
true culture. The institutions of popular religion tend to
organize the attention and resources of people in much the
same manner as the State. That is, merely “institutional”
religion fragments the native community of Man into a
superficial order of weakly associated individuals. It does
not oblige people to create literal religious community,
involving mutual cooperation, responsibility, and
dependence.

Therefore, practitioners of true religion should orient
themselves to the free creation of sacred community, and
they should work with one another to create truly
cooperative human environments. Truly, this obligation can
only be fulfilled by those who are sufficiently mature to be
religiously responsible in the moral and practical theatre
of human relationships. Thus, all such practitioners should
live in circumstances wherein there are constant
opportunities to be tested and to be creative in
relationships with others, but it is perhaps only among the
most mature practitioners or esoteric initiates that the
fullest agreements are possible, agreements which oblige
each and all to accept the many daily and household
conditions of a completely cooperative community of devotees
of the Living God.
