At the core of the thought of Spiritist Doctrine, we all find motivation to engage in our true liberation. With Allan Kardec, the respected and admired friend of Spiritualism, this mission is less complex. The world would be lighter and human life easier if we could understand and enjoy the so dreamed freedom. Religious Faith would be liberated by the spiritualist thought, whatever their interpretation of the phenomena of the soul when observing seriously the knowledge of the laws of nature, where Spiritualism is supported. Dethrone the interest of domination and value the work of maturing the consciences towards God, giving freedom from sentimentalism, fanaticism and destructive fundamentalism.

He is the author of the five books known as the Spiritist Codification , and is the founder of Spiritism. Rivail was born in Lyon in and raised as a Roman Catholic. He pursued interests in philosophy and the sciences, and became an acolyte and colleague of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. Rivail's work with Pestalozzi helped lay the foundations for the teaching model in schools in France and Germany.
In , with a new partner, Mr. Maurice Delachatre, a merchant, he created a so-called "exchange" bank, which aimed to facilitate commercial transactions and thus create new opportunities for trade and industry, in order to support in default of pecuniary resources for the natural products.
The duration of the trading bank was fixed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry at ten years. Fortier, a magnetizer, who took him to Madame de Plainemaison, a medium who lived in the Rue de la Grange Bateliere in Paris, just a step away from the Opera House. In the presence of other guests for the session, he entered into communication with a spirit named Zephyr, who gave him the mission of being the spokesman of the Dead.
For him, it was a revelation. He was there, for the first time, witnessing the phenomenon of turntables jumping and running". Strange phenomena attributed to the action of spirits were considered a novelty, featuring objects that moved or "tapped", purportedly under the control of 'spirits'.
In some cases, this was alleged to be a type of communication: the supposed spirits answered questions by controlling the movements of objects so as to pick out letters to form words, or simply indicate "yes" or "no".
When confronted with the phenomena described, some researchers, including Rivail, pointed out that animal magnetism might explain them. Rivail, however, after seeing a demonstration, dismissed animal magnetism as insufficient to explain his observations. As a result of these influences, Rivail began his own investigation of psychic phenomena , mainly mediumship.
He proposed that fraud, hallucination and unconscious mental activity might explain many phenomena regarded as mediumistic, and also proposed that telepathy and clairvoyance may be responsible. He compiled over one thousand questions concerning the nature and mechanisms of spirit communications, the reasons for human life on earth, and aspects of the spiritual realm.
He asked those questions to ten mediums , all purportedly unknown to each other, and documented their responses.
From these, he concluded that the best explanation was that personalities that had survived death were the source of at least some mediumistic communications. He compiled the mediums' responses that were consistent and adapted them into a philosophy that he called Spiritism , which he initially defined as "a science that deals with the nature, origin, and destiny of spirits, and their relation with the corporeal world.
Rivail wrote under the name "Allan Kardec", allegedly following the suggestion of a spirit identified as Truth. Collectively, the books became known as the Spiritist Codification.

Animated by the Divine Spirit, Jesus was the purest being who has ever appeared on Earth; and the doctrine He taught is, accordingly, the purest expression of the Divine Law.
