7.60 Non-denominational chapel building
Religions have caused many, many problems to the human race, which is the reason many people refuse to go to formal places of worship.
To assist such persons in building a relationship with God or for personal meditation, I direct that eventually lots and lots of inexpensive non-denominational churches are built all over the World to be used as appropriate. While there is extreme poverty, it would be outrageous to build really expensive elaborate "shrines" for this purpose. Even the most elaborate Temple ever built to the Creator 4000 years ago in Jerusalem was built at a time when there was relative peace and plenty in the land.
No War Bond finance will be used for this and it will be up to local volunteers to build and maintain them at their own expense.
It is not an alternative synagogue, church, Mosque or Temple that I am proposing, merely a place for people to go who do not wish at that moment in time to take part in organised religion or its rituals, yet feel compelled to be in a building built solely for spirituality and for communicating with God.
Even devout followers of organised religions may want to stop in between regular synagogue/church/Temple/Mosque services. All will be welcome with the exception of religious bigots who see themselves as far too holy, pious or superior to sit and quietly pray in the same room as someone who does not share their particular beliefs.
To maintain neutrality, there should not be any images, crosses, shrines, pulpits, etc. inside or outside.
No preaching is permitted. No talking or singing is permitted. No prostrating during prayer is permitted.
If someone brings their own Holy Book with them, when they are finished they can take it home. They should say their own prayers in silence, with optional soft quiet uplifting background music in tribal regions that want it.
These non-denominational places of worship and meditation should be built everywhere. In or near shopping malls, places of natural beauty, hypermarkets, airports, etc.
As a model for how to do this, a particularly architecturally beautiful example (and one that changed my life in July 1999) can be found on Highway 1 at Sea Ranch, California.
