Spiritism is, simultaneously, a philosophy and a field of scientific study. As a
scientific endeavor, it studies the relationships between the physical and the spiritual worlds. As a philosophy, it deals with the moral implications of such relationships.
Spiritism is a science that deals with the nature, origin, and the destiny of the
spirits and their relation with the corporeal world. The Spiritist Doctrine comprises of the following three aspects: philosophic,
scientific and religious.
In regard to the philosophic aspect, Spiritism studies the origin and destiny of
Human beings, as well as the existence of the supreme intelligence, first cause of all things. In the scientific aspect, Spiritism demonstrates experimentally the existence of the soul and its immortality by the mediumistic interchange between incarnates and discarnates.
Spiritism is not a religion per se, because it does not contain cults, rites,
ceremonies, and none of its followers have received a hierarchical title. However, in its religious aspect, Spiritism establishes a moral link among Human Beings leading them to a spiritual ascension towards the Creator through the living of Christ’s moral teachings.
Therefore, Spiritism is a new science that reveals to Humankind, by irrefutable
proves, the existence and nature of the spirit-world and its relations with the corporeal one. It is at the same time a science of observation and a philosophical doctrine that comprises all the moral consequences that come from those relations.
According to the Spiritist teachings, one can discriminate the difference between Religion per se and religions in the sense of Human sects. “For all Human Beings, Religion should be the divine sentiment that illumines the souls’ pathway. Each spirit will learn that in their pace of evolution.
In this sense, Religion is always the majestic and sovereign Truth. However,
Humankind divided itself in several religions as if faith would have boundaries. That happened because of the unquietness that characterizes Human’s existence on Earth.”
“Religion is the divine sentiment that links Humans to the Creator. Religions are
fallible and imperfect Human organizations as Humans themselves. Even though, religions are deserving of respect due to the superior inspiration that originated them. They are like celestial dewdrops mixed in the elements of the soil in which they fell on.”
