Popular Appeals

We should be cautious of a teaching that is popular.  Mass acceptance often means the truth has been diluted or inverted.  A truly fresh and uplifting teaching is unlikely to appeal to large numbers because the appeal must be based on non-egotistic appeals that are not popular.   The teachings of the great religions of the world were not popular at the time they were founded.  After centuries of debasement, obscurations and distortions—only then did they descend to a popular level.
