Is Eden a Religion?
Eden is neither a religious institution nor a movement to form a new religion. Eden instead puts each religion back to its initial essence, that is, the belief in the One and Only God. Eden strives for the neutralisation of all beliefs so as to unify all beliefs (become the belief in the One and Only God) for the sake of world peace.
“Heaven is not just a wilderness of purification nor a painting of the happy life in Heaven. Heaven is a physical reality which declares God’s blessing and bounty for those who persistently purify themselves.” (Theology for Pancasila Volume III, “Jibril Can Make Appearances in Several Different Places and in Different Regions at the Same Day”).
Which God Is Eden’s God?
The God we worship is the God who creates the entire universe with all its contents. The same God that most humankind worship. Muslims call Him Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala (the Most Glorified, the Most High); Christian, Father; Jews, YHVH (Yahweh); Hindus, Sang Hyang Widi; western people call Him God. The most important thing is that all these names refer to the Only Substance (the One).
What Is the Concept of God According to Eden?
Eden believes in the One and Only God, whose greatness of His spirit encompasses the entire universe and all its contents. In this end-times, when God sends down His Heaven to Earth, God points out that He is not only the Most Invisible, but His form is also the Most Real, as God explains His existence and also His form which is spherical and rotating. This explanation of the conception of God is what becomes the basic foundation for the manifestation of the post-religion Heaven civilization.
Heaven theology places great emphasis on absolute monotheism (tawheed). There is no more idolatry and associating God with something — not even with the religion and His messengers. God strictly forbids all forms of idolatry, such as worshiping Nyi Loro Kidul, spirits, applying shamanism, occultism, talisman, and believing superstitions.
Although Eden is very much based on absolute monotheism and has zero-tolerance against all forms of idolatry, its belief in God is not anthropomorphic (personifies God), but God is the manifestation of the universe itself (pantheism). In addition to that, God and nature are one (monism). Furthermore, God has explained that His form is spherical and rotating, as stated in God’s revelation that has been written in the book Theology for Pancasila Volume I:
The Theory of Sunkist Orange to Understand the Most Spherical Form of God
If I should explain My spherical and rotating form unto My messenger, who totally lacks knowledge about the science of universe and astrophysics, because she only has the knowledge of flower arrangement as her background. Therefore, I should explain it to her in a simple way, as I had instructed her to cut the sunkist into halves and asked her to liken it to a symbolization of the embracement of the universe.
That the Earth she resides now is just one teeny tiny dot among the contents of the sunkist. And I likened the whole content of the sunkist to the entire universe objects. And I explained the network of My spirit’s flow that is universe-wide also by using the symbolization of the thin inner-skin fibres of that orange, which are seen orderly spreading to all directions from the centre point to the skin of the orange.
And the layer of the orange’s skin I pointed out as the symbol of the universe’s mantle, whose function is to hold the excessive expansion of the universe, so that the coverage of the expansion of the universe could always be re-stabilized. And I instructed her to draw a scheme of the network cross-section of My spirit’s flow that covers the universe. Thus, only by explaining through the sunkist that was cut into halves, I have succeeded in bringing her thoughts to believe in My form, which is spherical and rotating…”
Is It True That Her Majesty Mother Claimed to Be God?
Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden has never claimed to be the Archangel Jibril, let alone claim to be God. Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden is the reincarnation of the Virgin Mary, but she is also a human being like humans in general who is chosen by God as a medium to convey His revelations, and a medium to convey the Archangel Jibril’s edict.
When there is a subject “I” inside God’s revelation that is being conveyed by Her Majesty Mother, it is referring to God, not to Her Majesty Mother. Indeed, she is given the ability to receive and convey God’s revelations, but it does not make her God. Likewise, the same process also happens to God’s previous messengers.
And we who stayed with Her Majesty Mother testify that we could distinguish between when Her Majesty Mother was delivering God’s revelation and when Her Majesty Mother was delivering Archangel Jibril’s edict, as well as when Her Majesty Mother was speaking on behalf of herself. Either verbally or in writing, Her Majesty Mother had never claimed to be God.
What Law Does Eden Obey?
Eden obeys God’s latest law, which is revealed at the present moment in Eden. However, Eden respects God’s universal laws that have already existed in the religious holy books. Eden also obeys the laws of the universe by having the obligation to maintain, protect and preserve the universe. Since the universe is the real manifestation of the One and Only God, then destroying nature and the environment, along with flora and fauna is considered as committing sins and mistakes.
What Is Eden Worship Like?
Eden does not have specific rituals and worship. What we do in Eden is taking care of God’s revelation, and that is the worship. Eden’s worship is to self-purify and not to commit any single sin and mistake. We are taught to always do everything earnestly and perfectly.
Everyone can say their prayers to God directly in any language they understand, without using intermediaries or being mediated.
“…That the worship of Eden focuses only on God’s revelation when it is being sent down to Eden. That is the official worship of Eden. Other than that, just pray in a universal prayer on every occasion where God’s blessing as well as God’s help are needed…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume I, “Wormhole, the Story behind God’s Revelation Sceptre”).
Does Eden Have a Holy Book?
The Holy Book of Eden is the Book of Life/the Holy Book of Heaven, of which the content records the journey of God’s messenger (Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden) in carrying out His discourse, and how the people respond to Heaven’s discourse that she carried, and how God reacts to it.
It is from that journey that God reveals the meaning of the secret verses in the previous holy books. Therefore, it is also called the Motherbook, because it contains the verses from the Vedas up to the Qur’an. The said holy book also contains the adjudication, judgment, and salvation from God.
How Does Eden Position the Previous Messengers along with the Holy Books They Brought?
Eden honours all God’s prophets and messengers by glorifying all the holy books they brought and position them on an equal level.
Eden believes that all the holy books that God has sent down to Earth (Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Tripitaka, Torah, Bible, and the Quran) are originated from God, the One. And it is the Holy Spirit who is assigned by God to meet the humans chosen by God to become His messengers.
From one holy book to another holy book, there is a connection and continuity, and they have the same common thread, that is, the Belief in the One and Only God. The verses in those holy books become the reference in the Holy Book of Heaven.
And when each religion has adherents who treat their religion and the messenger as the only way of salvation by negating the salvation outside the religious institution they adhere to, God then brings back the Archangel Jibril the Holy Spirit to straighten out such deviation so that there will be no more adherents who deify their religion and His messenger.
Honour the messenger of God by making the teaching real, as practised in the way of life of his people, not by venerating the individual and claiming to be the truest party. If that happens, then the spirit of the messenger will suffer greatly, because for every religious deviation committed by his adherents, God will hold His messenger accountable.
“From my explanation, hopefully I could enlighten human beings to not worship a human or an angel. Thus, it is foolish indeed, someone who worships an idol and the spirits of the ordinary dead people. Even the spirit of God’s messenger can do nothing, for after his duty as God’s messenger has ended, then he will reincarnate as an ordinary man, lacking the knowledge of God’s revelation.” (Theology for Pancasila Volume III, “God’s Reign in the Holy Bible”).
After Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden’s Death, How Is the Continuation of Eden?
After Her Majesty Mother died, then God’s revelation in Eden is ended. When Her Majesty was still with us, the revelation had also been documented in the Holy Book of Heaven. And now it is our turn to convey that teaching of her to humankind.
We, the Eden Community believe that His Majesty the Great King the Holy Spirit has united with Her Majesty the Great Queen Lia Eden in the spirit, who always guide our way to make Heaven of Eden exist on earth by protecting, preserving and implementing God’s revelations, His Majesty the Holy Spirit’s edicts, as well as the norms that had been written by Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden in the Holy Book of Heaven.
How Does Eden Know That the One Who Is with Her Majesty Mother Is an Angel, Not a Jinn?
How do religious adherents know that Prophet Moses, Jesus, and other prophets were the people who received revelation from God? At first, the prophets were also not immediately accepted by their people, even some of them were denied by their people. But God showed through the universe that they were indeed true messengers of God. It is time and history that will prove their truth thereafter, because the teachings carried out by them (the holy books) give benefit to humankind and the universe.
We believe that it was the Archangel Jibril who came to Her Majesty Mother. For 26 years we got lessons from the Archangel Jibril through Her Majesty Mother about monotheism, holiness, wisdom, brotherhood, honesty, justice, humanity, unity, and universal noble values. The Archangel Jibril had also consistently purified and punished us whenever we made mistakes.
Why Is Eden So against Idolatry and the Association of Something with God?
In the context of Eden, why does God forbid idolatry? It is not because God is jealous of being associated, but in the law of creation and the law of predestination and nature determination of all His creatures, there have been standard provisions or laws for His creatures (humans). Because being a human is to become a noble creature in the evolution of a spirit’s journey, while idolatry violates the territorial boundaries, trespassing into other realms which can make humans go into freefall, having their nature descend to become despicable and contemptible creatures. So, truthfully, God wants to maintain the nobility of humans, so they will not fall into having a worsening nature.
What Is the Law of Reincarnation and the Law of Spirit Regulation?
In the Holy Book of Heaven, God reveals the knowledge of the spirit realm to human. God gives knowledge through His messenger, Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden, about the law of reincarnation and the spirit regulation that rotate cyclically.
In the law of reincarnation and the law of spirit regulation, God explains that both laws are the certainty of the universal law. Because the entire universe from the smallest to the largest, from atoms to stars, all reincarnate and regulate in eternity. The law of reincarnation and the spirit regulation explain the law of God’s fairness to all His creatures. Through the law of spirit regulation, God explains the law of nature determination for every creature that depends on their deeds.
“There is no end for the universe, there is only the end of universe objects. The proper amount of the density of the universe objects in the universe corresponds to the order of the universe, and corresponds to the law of the universe that is always able to adjust the density of the amount of universe objects to the available space…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume II, “God’s Revelation Related to the Eternity of the Universe”).
How Does Eden Perceive Heaven & Hell?
Heaven is ‘now’ and ‘here’ — so is Hell. All takes place in human’s life at this very moment. The verses in the holy books that tell the story of Heaven and Hell, are actually telling about the happiness and suffering of the physical life on earth.
As for the Heaven in the hereafter, it is the Heaven of the spirit realm, that is the nature change of a human who purifies himself equal to the holiness of an angel, who then becomes an angel upon death. However, his whereabouts are still in this universe, except that he is in a different dimension.
As for Hell in the world, it is evilness, cruelty, abomination, sadism — all kinds of negativity that maximizes. Contradicting with the truth and holiness is the character of Hell. And if a human commits all those great crimes, then it is possible for him to turn into a devil in his next life.
“…If there is no human being who knows the real location of Hell and Heaven, then do not refuse when I say that Heaven and Hell exist in human world itself. If it is not so, We cannot describe the Day of Resurrection…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume II, “God’s Revelation: Orbit”).
What Is Apocalypse like in Eden’s Conception?
There is no total apocalypse of God’s multi-universes, there is only the apocalypse of His universe objects, for God’s multi-universes regulate in eternity forever. The Earth that we live in actually has gone through several apocalypses and rebuilds. It all rests on how humans treat their earth. Truly, the Earth and the human civilization today are entering the period of apocalypse.
Heaven of Eden is sent down by God into the Earth today to convey warnings and bring awareness, that the apocalypse of this Earth cannot be driven away nor postponed if humans remain unwilling to realize that they actually have disobeyed God and also damaged the Earth and its environment, especially if a nuclear war occurs.
However, if humankind can be enlightened and repent to God, humanity will thus unite in a universal vision that is willed by God, so that humanity can channel all its potential energy for the recovery of nature and the environment so as to make it possible for humankind to postpone the arrival of total doomsday.
And God has also sent down knowledge as written in the book Theology for Pancasila and the book The Theory of Everything from God, which explains how humans can move to another planet earth if this Earth’s apocalypse ever happens.
Are There More Messengers and Revelations from God after Her Majesty Mother?
Revelation is God’s authority, God’s prerogative. By His will, God’s revelation continues to be in continuity. There is no ending as long as human life and the universe still exist. In the law of cycle and the law of rotation, the term “end” does not exist. Therefore, the process of revelation will keep continuing as eternal as the universe and the life within. Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden is not the last messenger, but the revelations she brought were the most sophisticated in her time.
Eden does not limit messengership only to those who carry religious teachings. For Eden, all people whose works are eternal in their respective fields (in the fields of art, science, knowledge, technology, medicine, music etc) and their discoveries are beneficial to human life and civilization are God’s messengers. Therefore, the scope and definition of God’s messenger are broad. And it all depends on His rights and authority.
Does God Still Send Down a Prophet to Deliver His Messages after Prophet Muhammad? Isn’t Prophet Muhammad the Last Prophet?
The most important thing to be asked is what message do they carry — how relevant it is to the problems faced by humanity at their time. And does the message brought become a solution for the benefit of the people and bring goodness? And what is the outcome produced by the people who believe in them?
Today, God no longer sends down religion, but what is sent down by God is the Heaven, served as the fulfilment of God’s promise to humanity.
“…Thus, the interpretation of khatam an-nabiyyin has been misinterpreted as the end of prophethood, where in fact it is intended to state that in this end times, God does not send down a religion anymore, instead, all religions are the ones aimed to be united, so that all people no longer need to be hostile to one another. And if Heaven is sent down by God to the world, then all prophets who brought the teachings of religion are resurrected and gathered in Heaven to be purified, adjudicated, and punished for the sins they commit in this end times…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume II, “Nuclear War as the Cause of Doomsday”).
“…and when there is a different perception because they consider that God’s revelation cannot possibly be sent down again, thus they could never arrive at any paragraph from this writing of total reformation from God…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume IV, “Where Would One Seek the Reformation of Religion?”).
Is It True That Eden (Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden) Interpreted the Verses in the Holy Books as She Wanted, Following Her Desires?
That is not true. Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden was a laywoman in religious matters, especially those related to science. Therefore, she could not interpret a verse unless under God’s guidance. Thus, God walked her through her experience, and from such experience she was then able to reveal the meaning of the secret verses.
The new meaning of the secret verses from the previous holy books proves the authenticity of His messenger, as well as to show the eternality of the verses in the already existed holy books.
“…Thus, I guarantee that knowledge truly derives from Me. For how could it be possible for Lia Eden to write on her own without the guidance from Me…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume I, “God’s Revelation Related to Theology, Spiritualism and Theosophy of the Mysticism of Heaven and Hell in the World”)
“So that is how God involves me to demonstrate God’s omniscience over all knowledge. And it is our way of reminding the scientists whose theories must be warned, and the one who writes it is Lia Eden who is a laywoman in all knowledge. Through that way, the scientists will come to know that what is written by Lia Eden is derived from God…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume II, the Edict of His Majesty the Holy Spirit, Chapter “Extreme Religious Ritual Is Actually Not Blessed by God”)
“…I am lacking the knowledge in mathematics, logic, rule, analysis, rationality, objectivity and language. If now I am able to write, that is because of the drilling from Jibril who teaches me to write from a simple language, up to a difficult one…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume I, “Entropy”)
Eden Once Waited for a UFO at Monas, and the UFO Did Not Come as What Was Stated by Eden Previously. How Would Eden Explain Such Occurrence That Did Not Happen?
Indeed, we often enter the path of God’s purification. Because of our strong desire to be free from the stigma of people considered heretical , it makes us always want to see the victory coming. So, from there the endless tests keep coming. However, if we are open-hearted and accept the situation sincerely, then God will repay all our sacrifices with His blessing.
We believe that one day — who knows when — God will send down a high-technology spacecraft that will save and bring the believers and the people who purify themselves to another earth outside of this Earth.
When God saw us being open-hearted and patient in accepting His test, as a reward He revealed the knowledge of His form, which is spherical and rotating, and also the theory of the sunkist orange, of which are the basis of the birth of the book The Theory of Everything from God.
If in the past it was Noah’s Ark, then in the future it will be an intergalactic spacecraft that saves humankind from major disasters on Earth. Why not? That is the function of Heaven, the salvation of humankind. The tools of science and technology will be revealed, given by God as His gift that humankind should be grateful for.
What Is Eden’s Conception of Marriage?
As we have explained above, the norms and ethics which have already become the fundamental rule in religions, which serve the common good, then they also become the law in Eden, just as the law of marriage which continues to apply. The most important thing is that the marriage is based on mutual love and under no compulsion, and for Eden, marriage only recognizes monogamy and prohibits polygamy, because faithfulness goes hand in hand with holiness. Thus, polygamy makes someone unable to avoid telling lies because he cannot possibly be just.
How Is a Deceased’s Body Handled in Eden Community?
Regarding the funeral procession, Her Majesty Lia Eden was cremated and her ashes were scattered over the sea so that there would be no deification and veneration of her remains and grave. It is proper for us, Eden Community to also follow her footsteps; but for Eden, the procession of sending off the body is not a substantial matter. Some among us have passed away before Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden, and some of them were buried following the way of the belief their family adhere to.
So for us, it does not become a problem, how a person’s body is sent off. Eden is more on a substantial level and does not really bother the things pertaining to rituals/traditions.
What Are the Manners and Etiquette of the Eden Community Towards Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden?
When Her Majesty Lia Eden was conveying God’s words, we all must prostrate to respect the revelations that were being revealed. And if we were seen prostrating in front of Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden, actually it is the manners and etiquette towards a God’s messenger, of which within her resides the Holy Spirit as the conveyor of God’s words.
We differentiate our body position between when we prostrate to God and when we pay respect and reverence for Her Majesty Mother Lia Eden who has been united with His Majesty the Great King the Holy Spirit.
When we are prostrating to God, we bow down with our forehead touching the floor. When it is to the Archangel Jibril the Holy Spirit and Her Majesty Mother, we cupped our hands together and bow down as low as if prostrating.
Bowing down is Heaven’s etiquette when we want to talk to someone in order to respect our fellows.
What Must I Do If I Want to Participate and Follow Eden’s Teaching?
Eden is not a religion — that is why Eden isn’t looking for followers or recruiting members. But Eden is the Heaven sent down by God to Earth for all people of all religions and beliefs. Therefore, anyone who believes that God is now sending down Heaven and His Kingdom on Earth, then he should confess his sins directly before the One and Only God, by saying “In the Name of God the Only One, and In the Name of God’s Kingdom and Heaven of Eden” as the opening of prayer — not mediated by anything or anyone. Confess those sins before God thoroughly and swear not to repeat committing even the slightest sins and mistakes.
Atone for your sins one by one. If there is a sin you have committed to someone, then you must atone for it. If you had once stolen something, then you must confess the sin and return that person’s belongings. If it was a corruption, then admit it to the law enforcers and return the corruption money to the state and to the authorized institutions. If you have committed a murder, then confess that sin to the police or law enforcers. If you have committed adultery with someone else’s spouse, then confess it and apologize to that person’s spouse. If you hurt someone, then apologize by mentioning the mistakes done to him/her.
Those who felt the calling to self-purify, follow your conscience and do good. The rest, just do the daily activity as usual, living a holy life towards the ideals desired by God, which we start from ourselves, making Heaven of Eden that is full of peace on earth.
“…Be brave to purify yourself, dare to make a confession to God sincerely, and dare to redeem the karma of your sin…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume I, “God’s Revelation Related to the Principle of God’s Law about His Protection to His Messenger”).
“…Therefore, the first thing that needs to be done is to make a commitment to be willing to be purified by God in order to be accepted in Heaven. That commitment is required to be stated under oath so you can endure the tests. And if it has been agreed earnestly, then it should be believed that God’s purification upon yourself will be executed by the universe. Why the connection is that far? That is because all emotions and conscience can be detected by the spirit of Heaven’s oath that is bound by the spirit of True Oath of the Universe…” (Theology for Pancasila Volume I, “The Belief in the One and Only God Is Absolutized through the Eschatology of Heaven”).
