the religion of self


Quoting Newsweek, in 1990, commenting on the resurgence of religion:

Unlike earlier religious revivals, the aim this time (apart from born-again traditionalists of all faiths) is support, not salvation, help rather than holiness, a circle of spiritual equals rather than an authoritative church or guide. A group affirmation of self is at the top of the agenda which is why some of the least demanding churches are now in the greatest demand.

Loving God with All You’ve Got, p. 184, Sunder Krishnan
