Mythologization and idolatry of religion
Essenceism is a system aimed specifically at providing all religions with knowledge, so that they can effectively defend themselves against the phenomena of mythologization and idolatry. These phenomena significantly distort the meaning of their mission to save the world from evil. According to the assumptions of my system, it is the religions that should take responsibility for the process of salvation, i.e. restoring the world to the proper status of existence called the Kingdom of Heaven. It means the world under the authority of the Original Being. Meanwhile, mythologization and idolatry introduces the mythological image of God into most religions and constantly creates the temptation to create idols that obscure the true image of the Creator. From the very beginning, my system has appealed to the world's religions to cleanse their ideologies of the sources of mythology and idolatry.
The first such signal is the creation of an image of God in the image and likeness of man, that is, a phenomenon leading to the cult of an imaginary god. This is especially true of monotheistic religions, which have a huge impact on people and therefore can create many harmful phenomena. In protecting against this phenomenon, an example was the attempt to stop the idolatry in Christianity during the Great Reformation. However, churches in this current were not able to stop this phenomenon. Besides, they did not go too far in their activities, because the level of saturation of Christianity with mythologization and idolatry is still significant.
One source of cults that obscure the proper position of God the Creator is the creation of myths about the person of Jesus Christ, his mother Mary, some saints, and even church hierarchs. Such cult-making is one of the few phenomena that has caught the attention of essenceism.
Another phenomenon are the places of worship of most of the current monotheistic religions, which often resemble ancient temples built in honor of idols in their splendor. Such a condition of these places also supports the idolatry of individual people, i.e. the cult of saints, priests, hierarchs or distinguished leaders of a given religion. Additionally, highlighting their biographies which is to prove their extraordinary nature, is also conducive to the mythologization of a given religion. A large number of such testimonies give rise to many religious celebrations and holidays, drawing the attention of the faithful to external forms of worship. Essenceism indicates that all these facts, accumulating over the years, fill the activity of the clergy, leading to the neglect of the basic mission of religion, that is, acting for the salvation of the world.
In conclusion, essenceism does not agree with the definition of religion as the phenomenon of creating a cult of some god. My system is adamant that religion's mission is to work to free mankind from evil. The point is to bring to such knowledge about the phenomenon of salvation that the situation from two thousand years ago, when people rejected their Savior would not be repeated.
