|Hubbard vs. Christianity|
Hubbard claims that the goal of freedom sought in Christianity is attained with Scientology.
Man has spoken of the second coming of Christ and of the Judgment Day.
America has kept wide the doorway for this salvation by retaining religious freedom.
And here, after these ages of grief and suffering, through terrible wars and catastrophe, the hope still lives—and with that hope, accomplishment.
Many can be free in a few days. The souls of some can be saved in hours. Those deeply steeped in materialism can be salvaged in months or years.
As Christ said, the innocent can first be saved. In a little time, in minutes, the child can be saved. But the rich and the mighty, the enslaver and destroyer would lag behind for years—but they too can be saved.
If the Christian in Rome had been given this news, that his salvation was imminent, he would have believed and rejoiced. But this is not Rome, and Christ is two thousand years crucified—a long time—a time to forget, to disbelieve. Today perhaps a church or “man of God” might spit upon Christ himself if he came to call.
What you read here is factually, literally true. The salvation hoped for these past two thousand years is here.
What you read here is factually, literally true. The salvation hoped for these past two thousand years is here. You are being told that in this paragraph. And it is true.
We are extending to you the precious gift of freedom and immortality—factually, honestly.
Scientology is the science of knowing how to know. The mysteries of existence lie, in Scientology, before men's eyes. The doctors of divinity trained in Scientology know how to know and they know, too, how to set you free from pain, from grief, from suffering, from the endless despair of this veil of tears.
We will not mislead you. We have as part of the Code of the Scientologist, "3.) To refuse to accept for processing and to refuse to accept money from any person or group I feel I cannot honestly help." Scientology can free the human soul and deliver the body from pain.
Man can save his soul. We know how.
—L. Ron Hubbard
