Beliefs

Edenism's beliefs have similarities to that of Christianity.

Deities

The Church worships a single, all powerful, God.

Edenists believe that God's primary messenger on earth is the Pope of Eden and they believe the Pope may communicate indirectly with God. Edenists also believe that God may send messages to people on earth in Dreams but we must research what they mean.

Afterlife

Edenists believe that dedication to following the Book of Eden as well as the 14 Tenets and 12 Goals of Edenism will get followers back into the Garden of Eden after they die.

Edenists believe that the Garden of Eden became a level of Heaven and if Edenists don't quite make it there but are still virtuous they still make it to another level of Heaven.

Edenists believe that one day the Day of Judgement will come and the world will end and those who make it into the Garden of Eden or another level of Heaven will have eternal afterlife.

Book of Eden

The Holy Scripture in Edenism is the Book of Eden. Edenists believe it was directly dictated by God and was written down by Pope Luke I, founding the religion.

As it was dictated by God, Edenists believe what it contains is true.

Goals and Tenets

The Goals and Tenets of Edenism define how Edenists should live their lives in accordance with the Book of Eden.

Prayer

Edenists believe they should aim to pray multiple times a day to bring themselves closer to God and Re-Entering the Garden of Eden.
