You can change people’s material circumstances all you want, but you will only change the world by transforming the way people fundamentally conceive of being. In order to do this, you have to risk being looked on as a madman. Every generation has its standards, constantly enforced and reinforced in discourse, of what it deems rational. Belief in the soul is considered illogical today. God will follow suit, if he hasn’t already. Because standards of reason are bolstered in schools, and in many cases first taught in colleges and universities, it could be that belief in the soul, in God, in heaven, will only survive among children and the uneducated. But that is what the Lord said all along: many who are first will be last, and the last first. The soul has to be nourished.
