As with the other worlds, there are numerous worlds in the World of Gods. About 200 years ago, the decision was made at a higher world of the World of Gods that kenzokus（眷属）, such as dragon gods, fox spirits, snake spirits and so on, must be destroyed, who have served for thousands of years as agents between gods and humans on the earth, and that the present environment must be changed back to a state in ancient times where the Original God and human beings could directly communicate with each other.
Hearing of this, kenzokus in lower worlds of the World of Gods had complex feelings because they had served as agents between the World of Gods and the World of Reality and been worshiped as gods by human beings.
Gods in a higher world of the World of Gods thought that to destroy the agents abruptly would cause disruption in the World of Reality , so by sending kenzokus belonging to a higher world of the World of Gods, they tried to make human beings aware that they are “holy pillars” who have a part of the Original God in their heart.
As the result, what they brought about was the foundation of Konko-kyo（金光教）and Kurozumi-kyo（黒柱教）by a golden dragon god belonging to the world of Sun God, or Amaterasu-oho-mi-kami （天照御太神）and that of Tenri-kyo（天理教） and Omoto-kyo（大本教）by a black dragon god belonging to the world of Earth God, or Kunitokotachi-o-kami（国常立太神).
However, what the keozokus did resulted in personal worship of gurus supported by spirits of the World of the Dead, not the awareness of Inner God by human beings. Since the World of the Dead had strong influence on the World of Reality in those days, such an abominable situation couldn’t have been avoided.
In particular, religious sects deriving from Omoto-kyo was awfully bad. The adherents expected for benefits gained in this world and the teachings separated them from their Inner God, leading them to unhappiness. The way the kenzokus looked was not that of dragon gods. Every time they committed evil deeds, their whiskers and horns dropped, their scales and limbs disappeared and finally they turned snakes.
With the extinction of the World of the Dead, these kenzokus are disappearing. A new age is coming when it’s easy for each of you to find God in yourself, in which case religions will perish. The time is coming when religions making people worship something outside of them disappear.
Thank you so much for keeping us alive.
