misused these powers so much that the whole earth became corrupt,

God also created a new

God demonstrated that whenever people lose the view of these
Laws, they will suffer because of their actions. Also the seven
steps of the
Divine Path were revealed by seven religions in this period
to guide man in his spiritual progress.
