When the Aryans invaded India, they instituted the caste system to keep the natives under control. What happens, I think, is that the original revelation is meaningful, but the politicians in control get eventually to control the religion as a means to controlling the people. Constantine did it with Christianity. Jesus said to pray in a closet. The authorities let that much be known. But the obvious implication is that we do not need churches.
