A revealed scripture must provide rational arguments in support of its teachings

May 1, 2014

“A reason why a revealed scripture must provide rational arguments in support of its teachings is that the purpose of a scripture is not served if people merely read and repeat it parrot-like, thinking that they have thus merited salvation. Rather, the highest objective of a revealed scripture is to provide rational arguments in support of its teachings so that people may attain absolute and unshakable certainty-the kind of certainty through which all their actions, words and beliefs are set right and they recognize right as right and wrong as wrong, thereby attaining true piety.

People live in great peril as long as they languish in the hell of ignorance and blindly follow teachings inherited from their forefathers-teachings in which they have already lost faith due to apathy and gross materialism. Such are the people described in this verse of the holy Quran:

[17:73] whoever is blind in this world shall be blind in the next world also, indeed they shall be worse off.
(Surah Bani Isra’il, Part 15) *

Any scripture that fails to establish its own divine origin or the divine origin of its principles cannot open for mankind the door to eternal bliss. Instead of leading them on the path of knowledge and wisdom, it stunts their spiritual growth and casts them into the bottomless pit of blind following wherein they dwell like corpses, neither hearing nor seeing nor understanding. The followers of such scriptures have little regard for reason, logic, contemplation or insight, and are perfectly content with myths and stories of the past, with no desire to find the truth.

Having abandoned the gifts of reflection and deliberation and having stifled their innate capabilities, they have become worse than non-rational beasts.”

Jesus never in fact claimed any deity in literal terms

Hi friend sch

I thank you for sending me an ocean of words , not on the topic , yet not quoting in your reply as I have asked you any verses from the OTBible or Torah where punishment for the claimant of divinity has been mentioned for Jews by Moses.

You may quote it now, if you like; there is however no compulsion.
So Jesus was a claimant of the office of a Prophet Messenger of the Creator -God Allah YHWH; and Jews tried to punish him as a false Prophet Messenger as mentioned in Deuteronomy 13 and Leviticus 24.
There is no punishment in Torah for a claimant of Divinity; so this was not a charge against Jesus by the Jews; Jesus never in fact claimed any deity in literal terms.

Jesus survived death on the Cross and later he migrated to India; and thus Jews failed in their designs and Jesus was proved a truthful Prophet of the Creator- God Allah YHWH.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

Thanks
