Description: Scientology claims to be a gnostic faith that grants personal immortality.
Scientology is the subject of knowing how to know answers. It is an organized system of Axioms and processes which resolve the problems of existence.
A Scientologist is a specialist in spiritual and human affairs.
Scientology is organized from the viewpoint of the spirit and contains a precise and usable definition of the spirit, and charts and studies and is capable of changing the behavior of the spirit.
It is formed in the tradition of ten thousand years of religious philosophy and considers itself a culmination of the searches which began with early religious writings and practices. Scientology is a gnostic faith in that it knows it knows. (Gnosticism was an ancient religion which believed that spiritual freedom came with knowledge.) This is Scientology’s distinguishing characteristic from most of its predecessors. Scientology can demonstrate that it can attain the goals set for man by Christ, which are: wisdom, good health and immortality.
By spiritual means, but means which are as precise as mathematics, a host of bad conditions of life may be remedied in Scientology.
The only truly therapeutic agent in this universe is the spirit. In Scientology this has been demonstrated with more thoroughness and exists with more certainty than the physical sciences or mathematics. A Scientologist CAN make an individual well, happy, and grant him personal immortality, simply by addressing the human spirit.
For more than ten thousand years man has been accumulating material toward this goal, but it required a wide understanding of the philosophies and processes of Asia and a thorough indoctrination in the Western physical sciences and mathematics to bring about the precision existing in Scientology when practiced properly by a trained Scientologist.
It could be said that with Scientology we have entered The Second Age of Miracles.
Amongst the capabilities and potentials of the thetan is immortality in full knowingness of his own identity. The amount of time which he has spent on Earth, and the number of deaths through which he has gone, have brought him into a state of forgetfulness about who and where he has been. This material is recovered in Scientology.
Before you, in Scientology, is your immortality–your freedom as a spiritual being.
