Does Scientology have a concept of God?

Most definitely. In Scientology, the concept of God is expressed as the eigth dynamic -- the urge toward existence as infinity, as God or the Supreme Being or Author of the Universe. As the eight dynamic, Scientology's concept of God rests at the very apex of universal survival.

As L. Ron Hubbard wrote in Science of Survival: "No culture in the history of the world, save the thouroughly depraved and expiring ones, has failed to affirm the existence of a Supreme Being. It is an empirical observation that men without a strng and lasting faith in a Supreme Being are less capable, less ethical and less valuable to themseves and society... A man without an abiding faith is, by observation alone, more of a thing than a man."

Unlike religions with Hudeo-Christian origins, the Church of Scientology has no set dogma concerning God that it imposes on its members. As with all its beliefs, Scientology does not ask individuals to believe anything on faith. Rather, as one's level os spiritual awareness increases through participation in Scientology auditing and training, he attains his own certainty of evry dynamic and, as he moves from the seventh (spiritual) dynamic to the eigth, will come to his own understanding of infinity and God and his relationship to it.

Scientology seeks to bring one to a new level of spiritual awareness where he can reach his won conclusions concerning the nature of God (or the Supreme Being or infinity) and what lies in store for him after his present lifetime. Thus, like many Eastern religions, salvation in Scientology is attained through personal spiritual growth and enlightenment.


And now for the truth

That's all complete nonsense. Scientology isn't a religion and doesn't have any religious notions such as gods and goddesses. As discussed elsewhere on this web site Scientology's mad messiah L. Ron Hubbard added the notion of religion to his criminal enterprise for tax purposes and later to try to gain acceptable out in the real world.

In actual truth Scientology's head ringleader hated religion and claims that religion was created by a madman. In What Christians Should Know about the Church of Scientology we look at some of the notions that Scientologists are told to believe and as you review those comments by Hubbard you'll note that this Scientology spokesperson's claims are completely at odds with what the criminal enterprise actuall sell their victims.

In another document which the Scientology organization claims is a forgery we find Hubbard's well documented notions of religion mirrored in even more embarrasasing detail.

The claim that Scientology is some how a religion is recognized as a false front solely adopted for criminal purposes the world over by judges and various government agencies, some of which can be found here. Scientology's "Volunteer Minister" public relations front is simply more of the same old racketeering.

If Scientology can be said to have a god, it must surely be money.
