In Hinduism, by the way, this concept is expressed in three terms: sambandha, abhideya and prayojana. (This is for Alexey's answer). That is: understanding your position in the world and what this world is in principle (the problem), what comes out of it, what to do with all this (practice), and the actual purpose of practice (it is also the goal). Any Hindu, depending on the direction and school, is free to independently determine the above three. This concept, by the way, is applicable not only to religion, but also to any worldview in general. A person, in order to exist, needs to have at least some (albeit false) idea of himself, come up with a goal for himself and then figure out ways to achieve it, act. Whether you are a Hindu, a Buddhist, a communist, a pacifist, or a pipe-playing tinker , the essence remains the same.
Regarding the author's question, yes, because you can't always get into the toilet, let alone the Kingdom of God. Mercy is required here. But do not sit down by the toilet-our effort is required in the same way. But mercy is more important. This is provided in an accessible language.
