GET ACQUAINTED

Entity Mission is a non-profit organization formed to promote, publish and distribute information about Entitarianism, the new religious belief emerging in today's highly scientific, technological and computerized world. It recognizes the need to integrate science and religion into a single discipline to explore and understand the universe and our role in it. Entitarianism is the name given to a large body of contemporary religious belief which is still largely unorganized, which crosses social, racial, national and creedal barriers, which seeks to preserve old values by relating them to the new discoveries of science and technology, and which places its emphasis on community and a humanism which stresses the worth of each individual. It is a faith grounded in an immanent, personal God who gives purpose and meaning to life. It speaks to people who have rejected traditional religious dogma and have accepted a naturalistic view of reality as opposed to a supernatural one. Foremost among the many problems facing the tribe of humanity is a paralysis of human action due to the loss of hope in any higher destiny. Entitarianism offers such a hope.

As Entitarians, we sense some higher purpose to our existence which helps us to live life deliberatively and creatively. We find new meaning in the evolutionary sequence of the emerging universe-the galaxies, the solar system, the earth with its living forms and the primacy of human consciousness in the whole evolving Cosmos of God. We seek a new spirituality related to a modern, scientific understanding of cosmogenesis. The Epic of Evolution is our new creation story. It is taken from today's science and can unite people worldwide because it is true. This new story tells us that we are created from the dust of stars and are an integral part of the universe. The universe is conscious because of us. The universe is an organic whole and not a machine that can be reduced to cogs and bolts. We have adopted a scientific approach to life and a realistic, communitarian approach to problem solving. We see time as linear and creation as following Darwinian evolutionary principles towards some directed end. We believe that we have free will which enables us to participate in building the Cosmos of God. We are concerned not only with being the best that we can be but also in solving environmental destruction, the extinction of endangered species, overpopulation, human rights violations, poverty, crime, homelessness, the spread of AIDS, social decay and those factors which tend to weaken the family. We want to develop a new technology that will function in harmony with the dynamics of the natural world for a sustainable environment. We support traditional values which have guided and shaped the evolution of our species. We believe that all the peoples of the world are one. In an over-populated world, we believe in the preciousness of each individual person. We oppose all forms of racism, sexism or ageism which would prevent anyone from realizing their divine potential. We support democratic government which enhances the rights of all people, and believe that is is grounded in the natural law. We know that the tribe of humanity is one with its environment. Our world and all of the life forms which inhabit it are sacred to us. We are stewards of this Planet Earth with a holy mission to protect and preserve it. We are deeply concerned with the ecological issues of the integral survival of living and non-living systems of the planetary community. We are working for a future worthy of the generations to follow us.

ENTITARIAN CREED

We believe in one God who is an active, intelligent Force present within us and within all reality. We believe that our God gives meaning, direction and purpose to our lives, guiding and luring us in love towards an unknown but wonderful future. We worship God in a religious framework that respects both reason and experience. We know that revelation is available to us in both of these ways. Together they give us a religion that is reasonable because it is logical, complete, consistent, scientifically knowledgeable and because it binds everything together comprehensively. Because we believe this, we see ourselves as co-creators with God in a living and evolving universe. We are working to build a community of the concerned that is dedicated to a caring, loving and moral relationship to all life and the environment that supports it.

DOCTRINE

GOD IS THE CONSCIOUS, CREATIVE FORCE THAT GROUNDS ALL OF REALITY AND GIVES MEANING TO EXISTENCE.

GOD IS IMMANENT WITHIN ALL OF SPACE-TIME.

THE TRIBE OF HUMANITY IS A SINGLE PLANETARY ENTITY GENETICALLY UNITED INTO ONE FAMILY.

LOVE IS THE GRAVITATIONAL PULL OF CREATION THAT IS CENTERING ALL RELATIONSHIPS INTO A SACRED CORE AND BINDING THE MANY INTO ONE. EVOLUTION IS AN INTELLIGENTLY DIRECTED PROCESS MOVING WITH EVER INCREASING COMPLEXITY AND DIVERSITY THROUGH SUCCESSIVE STAGES OF RADIATION, MATTER, LIFE, CONSCIOUSNESS, SELF-AWARENESS AND CULTURE.

EQUALITY OF ALL MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE OF HUMANITY FORGES A HUMANITARIAN ETHIC THAT WILL ABOLISH POVERTY, WAR, IGNORANCE, DISEASE, INJUSTICE, AND VIOLENCE AGAINST THE INNOCENT.

THE FAMILY IS GROUNDED IN NATURAL LAW AS PART OF CULTURAL EVOLUTION. MEN AND WOMEN SHARE EQUALLY IN ITS DECISIONS.

THE MORAL IMPERATIVE AFFIRMS THAT EVERYTHING THAT PROMOTES THE EVOLUTIONARY JOURNEY IS GOOD, BUT THAT EVERYTHING THAT NEGATES IT IS EVIL. THE DESTINY OF HUMANITY IS THE MATURATION OF A SPECIES TO SERVE AS A HELPING CO-CREATOR IN FURTHERING THE EVOLUTIONARY JOURNEY.

THE GREAT WORK OF THIS GENERATION IS TO PROTECT AND SAVE THIS PLANET EARTH, TO NURTURE EACH OTHER, TO CHERISH ALL SPECIES OF LIFE, AND TO MAINTAIN A SUSTAINABLE ECOLOGY.

THE VISION OF HUMANITY IS A SPIRITUAL FIRE UNITING IT TO THE DIVINE HEART OF THE UNIVERSE.

THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY IS TO ENTER INTO A SPIRITUAL UNION WITH GOD AT EVOLUTION'S OMEGA POINT.

PRAYER

Oh, God! We need new light and a new message. We need the ancient wisdom of all your prophets, ablaze with the leaping fire and joy of a new conviction. You alone can give it. Inspire each of us to minister bravely as we shape a better world. Give us the courage and strength to face the vast needs of an unknown future. Support us with your love as we join with you in shaping that which is yet to be. Help each of us to accept the divine mission you have given us with glad hearts, as together with all humanity, we build the Cosmos of God. You are our God. There is no other.

MEDITATION

Come now little person. Turn aside for awhile from your daily employment. Escape for a moment from the tumult of your thoughts. Put aside your weighty cares. Let your burdensome distractions wait. Free yourself awhile for God. And rest awhile in God. Enter the inner chamber of your soul. Shut out everything except God and that which can help you in seeking God. And when you have shut the door, seek God. Now, my whole heart, say to God, "I seek your presence. God it is your presence I seek."

St. Anselm's meditation (above) is taken from the beginning of his treatise proslogion. It is designed to awaken the mind from its torpor. It is also a wonderful aid to use in the ancient practice of "lectio divina". Many people have been happily surprised to find that this classical form of meditation can give them immense relief from their worries, fears, temptations, evil thoughts and the agitation these produce. "Lectio divina" consists of four interlocking parts: reading a religious or spiritual passage to yourself aloud; meditating or thinking about what you have read; praying about what has arisen up in your mind and heart in meditation; and then contemplation-simply resting silently in God for a time after you have prayed. In practicing this form of meditation, it is vitally important to read the religious passage aloud. This helps to slow a person down as well as relaxing them. In addition, hearing the words uttered aloud enables a person to absorb what they read much better.

HAPPY SPIRIT

Happy Spirit is the name of our new mission project, as well as of an entertaining and inspirational booklet which we prepared in conjunction with it. The project was created in part as a response to our participation in "Action Without Borders 97". During the week of October 18-25, community and non-profit organizations around the world joined together to promote volunteerism and citizen action in helping to improve and strengthen their communities. The "AWB 97"  project was organized by "Idealist" which maintains an online directory of over 10000 non-profit and community organizations working in over 120 countries. Each participating organization was free to choose its own area of service. Entity Mission chose to further its work with elderly and neglected people in nursing and convalescent homes by preparing and publishing reading material for them. During this period, the booklet "Happy Spirit" which is non-denominational in character was delivered without charge to area care centers for the elderly. This mission project  is an integral, continuing part of Entity Mission's overall commitments.
