CHAPTER II – Necessity to Create the Foundation


Art. 4. The project deals with certain universal religious musts related to the existing social framework. While the rituals of religious celebrations become more and more varied, often risking to fall into inevitable traps, aggressive materialism, atheism, wars based on religious conflicts together with the arms-race lead to poverty of the people and to an impending danger for the Earth: cultural decadence, ecological crisis, cloning or euthanasia that frequently trespass the Divine Laws. The existence of all the conflicts is based on a partial or total lack of communication among the religious representatives. The religious crisis generated by the present world-context is symptomatic, and the cause or its effects are well enough known, needing no further comments. The above examples and many others become solid reasons to initiate a permanent Interreligious dialogue of the representatives of world religions in Bucharest – Romania (Eastern Europe), and this is the only viable way towards mutual knowledge and rapprochement.
