HEALING the HUMAN TRAGEDY

I believe that active members of every faith tradition recognize the reality of the “Human Tragedy”, and are trying to do all they can to heal it on behalf of the race. If you will invest eight and one half minutes to view this clip from the Broadway production of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde”, you will understand why I say this.

There are many things included in the script, that as a Christian, I can perfectly relate to and I think that will be true of those from other faith traditions. Here is a sterling example: “The true self is locked inside a facade of hypocrisy”. We cannot seem to extricate ourselves from this human condition, no matter what we do including in modern science and medicine, or with philosophy and religion, all super-charged now with the latest technology. I have come to the conclusion that our only hope has to come from “outside” the human race.

We shall all be changed, in the twinkling of an eye!” Yes, but how? The Biblical narrative has one answer, other faiths have different answers.
