“Unless a man is perfectly certain about the Existence of God, he cannot hate sin and unless he believes that God is the one who punishes, he cannot shun evil.”
“That is how God has commissioned me; the aim of my appearance in the world is that I should show to the world that God is there and He gives rewards as well as He punishes.
“It is very clear that it is only the certainty in the Being of God that can save the man from the sin and secure him against the death through sin; we do not need to produce any logical proofs for the truth of this matter, for that is what man experiences everyday and his nature is also a supportive proof for this fact.
“Unless a man is perfectly certain about the Existence of God, he cannot hate sin and unless he believes that God is the one who punishes, he cannot shun evil.
“We know it quite well that the things of which we know to be useful, we run to them to obtain them and the things that we know to be harmful and dangerous for us and which according to us are poisonous, we run away from them.
“As for an example, if we know that there is a snake in the bush, can any one of us dare go near it and put his hand into the branches of that bush? Not at all. Rather, even if we have a hazy idea of there being a snake in a hole we will certainly hesitate to go to that side.
“Same is the case with the poisons. When we know of a poison that it kills the man, we keep ourselves away from it. If there is an epidemic of bubonic plague in a residential area, we run away from it and think that going there is no less than jumping into a burning oven. What is it that has made us frightened that we do not go for these things? It is our certainty that these things are dangerous and have fatalistic effects.
“We can quote countless examples of this kind and all these things are a matter of our daily experience.”
(Malfoozat Vol. III, 12)
