Scripture of the Scientology religion consists of the writings and
recorded spoken words of L. Ron Hubbard on
the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology. This Scripture includes more
than half a million written pages, over 3,000 tape-recorded lectures
and some 100 films.
his Scripture is the sole source of all doctrine
regarding the religion of Scientology and it is an inherent principle
of the religion that only by exactly following the path it outlines can
mankind achieve spiritual salvation. This concept of orthodoxy in
religious practice is fundamental to Scientology. Thus, any attempt to
alter or misrepresent the Scripture is regarded as a most severe breach
of ecclesiastical ethics.
To ensure the purity and orthodoxy of the Scripture,
the copyrights on all of its published works, which are owned
exclusively by the Church for the benefit of the religion, have been
registered in all relevant countries. These registrations ensure that
the Scripture cannot be altered, perverted or taken out of context for
improper or harmful ends.
