At first, church attendance went down because the hypocrites were easily spotted because of a dim or dark countenance and because of the inherent faultfinders, gossipers and false judges realized that their countenances were fading as well.
After a while the attendance started to go back up and began attracting both the true believers, honest disciples, and those who want to believe because they could find real forgiveness, honest support, and truthful encouragement.
Contrary to popular belief the advent of the bioluminescence cleared up the misinterpretation and misrepresentations between believers and no believers. Morals and ethics were no longer arbitrarily applied but the GM’s behavior models adequately segregated the disparate belief systems and attributed the appropriate value to each member so that no one was penalized by another’s belief system but every member would be held to there belief system and their personal value.
The apparent disparity between believers and nonbelievers were acknowledged by the believers acceptance of a higher standard of behavior. Divergents and deviants were not given a pass because the morals of any decent society prohibited such behavior but the tithes, contributions, and adherence to rituals and ceremonies separated them.
Jews, Christian, Protestants, Evangelicals, Mormons, Hindus and to the extent that the Muslims would be westernized were now being evaluated based on their own beliefs and self-imposed preferences. Prior to the advent of the GM the world’s religions were pitted against one another but at the cusp of Armageddon the collective finger was removed from the world war button. Since then a uneasy truce transformed into a mutually respectful cohabitation of the world. This happen primarily because the divergent belief systems and their adherents were all put on trial not by each other but by themselves. Lying, cheating, and stealing became practically non-existent. Practicing what they preached now became operable and visible not only to their critics but to themselves. Care of the poor, fatherless, and elderly replaced the worship at the alter of the self-indulgence, conceit, and ego.
The most remarkable transformation was the reduction of the standard of living of the industrialized countries who were forced, by the worlds economic collapse. In response the past’s irresponsible leaderships were forced to retreat from the bankers credit window and the stop using the tax man’s to pilfer the future.
The most unexpected outcome was the collective prosperity experienced by the world’s population all possible by becoming remarkable stewards and innovative wonders taking care of the earth resources and maximizing the goods and services available.
