Faith Includes Laws

318-955Most worshippers who believe in The Lord God leave many mysteries in a zone of mental vagueness. But scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg claimed that we are now living in an era where all the mysteries of faith can finally be explored by the rational mind.

This means that it is now permitted (from Above) that scientific laws (universal and objective scientific laws, that is) can be linked to otherwise invisible spiritual processes. One such universal scientific law is the Law of Triads. This law states that in order for anything real to come into existence, three principles must take part.

These three principles correspond to the Lord God’s Trinitarian, or three-fold character of “Father,” “Son” and Holy Spirit.” In Nature, these three Holy forces become active, passive and reconciling principles, which take part in the creation of all things.

In creation (entropy) the trajectory is from God, outward to the natural world. In evolution, a reverse movement (reverse entropy) is established whereby created things return inwardly to the Creator (in heaven).

How is this turnaround explained by the ubiquitous Law of Triads?

Simply put, it takes place when the Law of Triads becomes incomplete. In terms of evolution, a point is reached in the descending trajectory of Triadic forces where there are no longer any passive principles at hand. But since God’s action is continuous, the Triadic dynamic must also continue. So, the active principle reaches a point where it must become a new passive principle and this change brings about a new reversal of directions.

In human spiritual growth, this same process is accomplished when the ego (formerly an active force in our lives) now becomes passive to another active principle (like obeying God’s dictums).

All true religion concentrates its doctrine on this reversal.
