The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

Behind every idea, religious thought or world view, is a person who has originated that way of viewing life. That thought will not supersede its founder. It is foolish to follow a religion, a spirituality, or way of thinking without looking at the person who brought it to life.

This quote by Jesus Christ is the true measurement of all religion. All religions stand or fall on their founders, and not on what their followers portray the founder or religion to be. What followers practice and believe about their religion may change at various times, but history teaches us, that it is inevitable for all religions to default back to the heart and practice of its founder.
