We should say at the outset that the Teachings of the Fire are neither religious nor atheistic. Their relationship to religion is as follows: "People, your problem is not whether or not there exist any Gods. There do exists Gods, of course, a number of them, whether you like it or not. Your problem is how to reduce the bad in you, and increase the good".

Thus in the Teachings of the Fire it is not important whether a person follows some particular path, whether it be ideological, religious or some other path. What is important is that he follow the path that leads towards himself.
