    Logic Only can bring unity among religions

    Today the development of science is terrible, which is the faculty of logic and analysis. Today the heart is reduced and the brain is expanded. The old generations were having a broad heart and less brain. The heart can be inspired by appeals but the brain will not be satisfied by appeals. If you appeal “All the human beings are one and the same internally and externally. God is one only. Do not quarrel with each other and be united as one family”, the effect of such appeal is temporary only. When the devotee returns back, the emotion is subsided by next day itself.

    The reason is that his or her intellectual facility (Buddhi) is not satisfied. You have not given the logical analysis of such concepts. You have worked at the level of mind only and not at the level of intelligence. Mind is the steering rod and the intelligence is the driver. Mind is in the hands of intelligence. Due to this reason only, the Lord started Gita with the concept of knowledge and analysis (Buddhi Yoga). The driving knowledge of the driver is more important than the driver. The correct driving depends on the correct driving knowledge imparted on him by the teacher of the driving school, who is the Satguru.

    In the case of Arjuna, the teacher of the driving school himself became the driver! You cannot imagine the fortune of Arjuna. When God Himself became the driver, He is called as Satguru. The word Sat is used to mean God. Guru means guide.

    Unity....nah...Destruction

    Sorry, but if logic was truly used by the popular religions, then they all would cease to exist. But religion isn't about logic, it is about faith. Belief in the absence of facts.

    Absolute Logic

    GOD is absolutely about Logic. HIS Specific Word reveals HIS plan to rid the earth of the war monger, nuclear bomb builders and people who rule by the Rod of Iron (Gun). It reveals HIS Logical plan in which evil people will be Judge by their own decrees and philosophies against HIM.

    :spin:

    :boring:


    In another forum, when question by sister Destee about how you knew that the scriptures you believed in came from God, you said it all boils down to faith. Now, you are coming in here talking "logic"...give me a break.

    Logic and God

    Logic and God

    Whenever the direction to God was twisted by misinterpretations, I came several times to this earth through human bodies to remove the misinterpretations and restore the correct direction. I communicated the truth according to the then existing standards of logic and analysis (Science). I could not go beyond a certain level of logic because the receivers could never digest and appreciate it. But today the development of science is so tremendous that the capability of logic is in its climax. Therefore, I have used the present standards of logic in communicating the spiritual knowledge. Of course, God is beyond logic and logic cannot show God directly. But based on this fact, you should not reject the logic (Tarkaapratishthaanaat…Brahma Sutra). Even though the logic cannot indicate the unimaginable God directly, the logic can eliminate the non-God items which are established as God by misinterpretations.

    For example, with the help of the advanced logic (Science), I could easily eliminate the soul from the position of God. By removing the fungus, and impurities the water becomes clear and there is no need of any direct purification of water. Similarly by removing the misinterpretations through the powerful logic of today, God becomes clear by this indirect way. When all the imaginable items are eliminated, the unimaginable God is inferred. God can be inferred indirectly but cannot be perceived directly and therefore God remains unimaginable always. However, God gives the experience of His existence in a specific medium by entering it, pervading all over it and identifying Himself with it like current in the alive wire. Through Science you can infer the existence of unimaginable God, whereas through the medium you can experience the existence of the same unimaginable God. Do not mistake that experience means understanding the nature of God. You have only experienced the existence of unimaginable God, which was already inferred by you through Science.

    I take it this means more emphasis is placed on the intelligence of men than is on their compassion and love today, and that back when more emphasis was on love and compassion than intelligence.

    Well, it was stated in prophecy by the Holy Son that the love of many would grow cold, so it should be of no surprise to the faithful.

    I do believe our knowledge should be increased, but only in what the Father will have of you, because not all are needing of the same knowledge as they walk the road of righteousness in faith to His Holy Anointed Son.

    And I do believe we should live as the Son lived, which was in compassion and love, not just for righteous men, but even sinners, or especially, I should say. His sacrifice to us was His love manifested before just as He was the Father's light and love for us, come in the flesh. And His resurrection from the dead is hope for us, for life we seek after in our KING, so long as we believe and have faith in what He's done.
