Nuggets from Occult Invasion—The Humble Approach |

Dave Hunt

To suggest that Christianity is the one true faith and is unchangeable contradicts what Templeton calls The Humble Approach in religion. According to him, when people take a “humble attitude, they welcome new ideas about the spirit just as they welcome new scientific ideas…. Humility opens the door to the realms of the spirit, and to research and progress in religion” and “is the key to progress” because it prevents the proud delusion that any one religion could be right:

“The truly humble should be so open-minded that they welcome religious views from any place in the universe that is peopled with intelligent life. Seekers following the humble approach…never…reject ideas from other nations, religions, or eras…the humble approach to theology is ongoing and constantly evolving…. In fact, at the heart of true religion is the willingness to see truths in other religions. The Persian scriptures claim, ‘Whatever road I take joins the highway that leads to Thee…. Broad is the carpet God has spread….’”
