group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due

accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each
and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the
Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the
hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit.
