What Is The Word of God ?

No matter what Faith you claim, you have available to you a "Word of God".

If you are more open-minded than most people, you have available the Word of God from all religious persuations.

Various Writings spell out the idea that the Real "Word of God" is the living expression of the Manifestation of God.

There have been a number of Manifestations over the centuries and, contrary to the members of their various expressions of Faith, They never claimed special distinction over the other Manifestations...

"The vitality of men’s belief in God is dying out in every land; nothing short of His wholesome medicine can ever restore it.

"The corrosion
of ungodliness is eating into the vitals of human society; what else but the Elixir of His potent Revelation can cleanse and revive it?

"Is it
within human power, O Hakim, to effect in the constituent elements of any of the minute and indivisible particles of matter so complete a transformation as to transmute it into purest gold?

"Perplexing and
difficult as this may appear, the still greater task of converting satanic strength into heavenly power is one that We have been empowered to accomplish. The Force capable of such a transformation transcendeth the potency of the Elixir itself.

Word of God, alone, can claim the distinction of being endowed with the capacity required for so great and far-reaching a change."
