““God said it.”
“When you declare that a god told you something, you are attempting to shut down the discussion. We are not suppose to question the gods. By declaring that a god declared some ‘truth’, you are using the sanctification cloak to stop all questioning.” Unquote

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908 has introduced a different notion of “God said it”; he ( and most of his followers) presents the reason content in the quote not the quote as an authority. If one understands the reason content in the quote, that is sufficient , otherwise one could ignore it.

We don’t stop anybody from questioning; one could still question.

We can still quote from the “God said it”, for the reason content in the quote.

So on and so forth.

Please
