Likely, our second-to-last show in our study of religion with the fifth of the "religion papers, The Reality of Religious Experience with §7 & §8, Science and Religion and Philosophy and Religion.
But as ascending man reaches inward and Paradiseward for the God experience, he will likewise be reaching outward and spaceward for an energy understanding of the material cosmos. The progression of science is not limited to the terrestrial life of man; his universe and superuniverse ascension experience will to no small degree be the study of energy transmutation and material metamorphosis. (1138.1) 103:7.3
The teachers of both science and religion are often altogether too self-confident and dogmatic. Science and religion can only be self-critical of their facts. (1138.5) 103:7.7
A good and noble man may be consummately in love with his wife but utterly unable to pass a satisfactory written examination on the psychology of marital love. Another man, having little or no love for his spouse, might pass such an examination most acceptably. The imperfection of the lover’s insight into the true nature of the beloved does not in the least invalidate either the reality or sincerity of his love.
If you truly believe in God — by faith know him and love him — do not permit the reality of such an experience to be in any way lessened or detracted from by the doubting insinuations of science, the caviling of logic, the postulates of philosophy, or the clever suggestions of well-meaning souls who would create a religion without God. (1140.3,4) 103:8.3,4
