<blockquote>It must ever be recognized that the real and the counterfeit have been with humanity for a long time. Whenever God has blessed men with Truth, the counterfeit, or [[Antichrist]], has also asserted itself. Each attempt for Good is usually inverted and the opposite end of the axis is brought to the fore in the attempt to alienate the allegiance of men from their highest Selfhood.”<ref>{{POWref|6|39|, September 27, 1963}}</ref></blockquote>

Thus the ascended masters sponsored an activity (spiritualism), destined to serve a twofold purpose: as a catalyst in world thought and as a foundation stone for future revelation. However, it is never the purpose of religion to bind man to a system, to dogma or to a set of doctrines, but to bind him to God. When a particular form of religion ceases to serve this specific reason for being—when through progressive revelation new dispensations of enlightenment are released by the Hierarchy—the old form must be remodeled to conform to the accelerated momentums of light that are made available to a planet and its evolutions. Or, when this is not forthcoming, the old form must be discarded—however painful this process may be, however much good may still remain within it.
