Creation of Civilization
Written by Mokichi Okada in 1952
As I explained in the previous chapter, opposing to ninety-nine per cent of evil, one per cent of good has emerged. Its absolute power of God corrects the established culture and sets up a new one, in a word, it turns its hand over. This is the outline of God’s providence for the future and its unprecedented plan would be beyond our imagination.
Regarding this, here is the fable of the forbidden fruit in Genesis of the Old Testament. It is, of course, metaphor. In the story of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden, the truly profound mystery of God is hidden. I will explain it step by step but before reading it, you must become blank, otherwise cannot possibly understand it. Needless to say, evil is caused by eating fruit. It is because the fruit is medicine. The medicine causes disease, which causes evil. However, since before the birth of Christ, human beings started to use medicine to cure disease. How could we know that the forbidden fruit meant medicine? Knowing this reason, there would be no one who stunned and astonished. Why has no one ever imagined such reason? When I explain this, I should thoroughly explain the theory and practice of it, so you should see it with your eyes wide open.
As explained before, you’ve already understood that human beings consist of spirit and body and there’s the principle of ‘spirit leads and form follows’. For this reason, the cause of evil is cloud generated in spirit. Along with the original animal spirit which has already possessed this cloud, another animal spirit possesses it. Then they make a person do animal-like deeds, which are deeds of evil. In a word, the cloud of spirit is namely evil. Therefore, to eliminate evil, it is obvious that the cloud of spirit must be removed. However, here is the big problem that the cloud is caused by the medicine. The cloud is, of course, transferred from impurity blood, which is caused by medicine, so there would be no evil occurred if only people stopped using the medicine. Throughout these explanations, you will see the evil is caused by forbidden fruit, or medicine indeed.
Here, I have to describe one more important thing. As I explained, medicine caused evil to promote the development of culture. Other than this, medicine has played a great role. That is a natural purification action to eliminate the impurity from the blood. It is because the accumulation of cloud affects human health and disturbs natural human activities. However, as human knowledge was not yet developed, people thought the pain caused through the purification action was a negative state. Therefore, they started to use medicine to relieve their pain. It is because that purification action is stopped by weakening physical strength, so when physically becoming weak, purification action is weakened and as a result, the pain is relieved. Thus, people misunderstood this process was the action to cure disease. For this reason, first of all, this fallacy is the root cause of producing such painful hell-like the world today.
As described above, medicine merely reduces pain due to its toxin but never heal disease, and worse still, its toxin becomes the cause of disease. There are no words for such ignorance but as it is, this blindness for the disease is surprisingly God’s profound intention. I will describe it in detail now. First of all, there were two ways to develop a culture. One is, as I explained before, the way of causing evil and letting it fight with good, and the other is of weakening human health. I omit the former to describe as I already explained, so let me explain the latter. Firstly, as you see the human history since primitive times, it was originally a natural life itself. At that time, their food, clothing and shelter were almost same as those of a beast. Their health and physical strength were also the same. It is obvious that people ran around the fields and mountains, and fight with beasts, vipers and any other animals. It is no exaggeration to say, that was the whole life of humans at that time. As time goes by, such beast like violent behaviour was no longer needed. Then, a fight between men and men started and gradually became intense. However, it contributes to the development of human knowledge and the creation of culture over the years. For such reason, it is supposed that, if the human life had been peaceful without any conflict from the beginning, it would have remained as it was at primitive times, or a little bit progressed but human knowledge would have less developed so that they would have to accept a savage like life. However, as explained above, disease and evil were caused by eating the forbidden fruit, but people didn’t realize it at all until today. Therefore, they fell into the deep superstition of medicine and kept making a great mistake. Furthermore, human beings, who were as healthy as a primitive person, lost their physical strength as they conquered animal and ensured safe living. Along with this, human knowledge was developed, so that people constructed a flat road and were able to move without walking on a carriage drawn by horses and cows. That was in the Japanese case. As for foreign countries, they invented a steam locomotive running by burnt charcoal on rails, and then wonderful and useful transportations such as the automobile and aeroplane. In other fields, they made machines such as radio and electricity. To reduce humans’ misfortune, they also improved the knowledge of all cultural aspects such as politics, economy, education, morality and art as well as the structures of society. They also produced ingenious facilities for them. They developed them further and created a civilized society like today. All of them are nothing but a preparation for the construction of Paradise on Earth to come.
As stated above, the fundamental purpose of medical science is to generate humans’ evil and weaken their health, so that the world like today was made as expected. However, if this world is more progressed, human beings are rather in danger of their destruction, so it is impossible to progress any more. Therefore, God disclosed the truth to me to make a great transformation of civilization. Thus, the time has come to restrict evil to a certain extent and construct the civilized world of ‘good leads and evil follows.’
