An extraordinary event has taken place in our time. To the Old and New Testaments of the Bible there has been added a third! With this Third Testament the message of love that is inherent in Christianity has become rooted in everyday reality - a connection that up until now has been missing. The answers to the eternal questions - the solution to the mystery of life, immortality and the existence of God - are explained here logically and scientifically. The ways of God are now no longer unfathomable!
The Third Testament transforms love, that is to say “loving one’s neighbour as oneself ”, into scientific fact by demonstrating that this attitude towards life is in harmony with a cosmic worldview. In this way, the message of love in all world religions becomes firmly established as fact. The Third Testament proves that there is wisdom in doing good! Selfishness is a symptom of ignorance, “one knows not what one does.” The good person is not foolish; he is wise! In the light of the Third Testament’s cosmic worldview, Christ’s loving behaviour becomes an expression of crystal clear logic and science. That Christ’s mission was not quite complete but needed to be continued is evident from his proclamations about the future. He said to his disciples: “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:12-14)
Is the Third Testament really the fulfilment of this prophecy? According to Martinus, the author of the Third Testament, the answer is yes, and this is a statement that can be verified. The argumentation is to be found in the writings that make up the Third Testament. The main, seven-volume, work of the Third Testament is called in the original Danish, Livets Bog, which is also its international title, this title translating into English as The Book of Life. The title points to reality as the source of all wisdom. The all-encompassing reality of existence is the true book of books, the Bible of Bibles. It is therefore in reference to this “book” that all theories, ideas and statements must be judged.
Martinus writes: “Livets Bog should thus give the student an insight into how this correspondence or this direct speech of life exists as the absolutely one and only fundamental religion in existence, in that it can only exist with absolutely everyone as teachers, everyone as pupils and everything as its doctrines. As all living beings thus exist as members of this religion already at birth, it has no admission ceremonies. And as the range of its scope from eternity to eternity comprises nothing less than the universe itself, we find ourselves faced with the one and only existing religion, in which there is literally to be found only ‘one flock and one shepherd’”. (Livets Bog 1, 15)
