WHAT IS SPIRITUALISM?

Compensation and retribution hereafter for all good and evil deeds done on earth

This follows on what has been said previously. The Orthodox Church would have us believe that on this awful "day of judgement" God will sit on his throne and cast each one of us into heaven or hell. Heaven and hell are states of mind of our own creation and not celestial localities. Our code of life on this earth will determine our spiritual status in the world of spirit.

It is equally wrong to think that because one attends church regularly, or performs evangelical or "other good works" one will automatically be given pride of place in the hereafter. It will be our everyday deeds and motive for them that will count and how well we have carried out the precept "Do unto others....". Neither is it true that after our passing we will become a saint. Death does not make us spiritually aware.
