Principles of Spiritualism
The seven principles of Spiritualism
- The Fatherhood of God.
- The Brotherhood of Man.
- The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels.
- The continuous existence of the Human soul.
- Personal responsibility.
- Compensation and retribution hereafter for all good and evil deeds done on earth.
- Eternal progress open to every Human soul.
The principles are open to the interpretation of the individual but their basis is:
- God is that perfect force of pure and divine love and power, and that we are a part of that love. We flow from that source.
- Accepting the brotherhood of mankind through the leadership of the Christ Energy.
- Belief in the communion with God, with his angelic ministers and with the souls functioning in dimensions other than earth life.
- To believe in the survival of the human soul and its individuality after physical death.
- To take personal responsibility for all sins/deeds committed, and to understand that these actions can only be recertified by the individual, and not by the forgiveness of another person i.e. priests.
- All words/deeds and actions done on earth must be redeemed by the person himself/herself, through redemptive power of Jesus Christ, by repentance and service to others, either in this life, the next or in spirit.
- That through the divine laws governing all life and death, we have the opportunity even after death to redeem our soul.
