Yesterday I Saw this and Got this Question In my Mind
"And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah ." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain." Quran 4-157
This much is confirmed about all the Prophets that they were not selfish people, they sacrificed their pleasure full life because of their compassion toward humanity. They were rebels of that time who fought against all odds. At their times they were appreciated by very few and opposed and insulted by whole world. And no doubt about the level of intelligence they had shown, so if if they were fake with that easily they could have enjoyed a opulent materiel life. Instead of choosing a tough path.
So man like Christ will let one innocent die in place of him is not believable
and Man like Muhammad who used to think for even those who hated him.
there is a tale about Muhammad's Compassion, there was a lady who everyday used to intentionally throw Garbage upon Muhammad, and as usually he never opposed it. but one day that lady didn't came out, from that Muhammad Understood Something is wrong with that lady. So he went inside the ladies house and found her too be ill and took care of her.
From the humanly perspective it seems:
So a person like Muhammad cannot prescribe "Stoning" and all other barbaric Punishments, which Current Islam is supporting today (I goggled it and found most of those was prescribed in book written by Muhammad's later Disciples "NOT BY MUHAMMAD").
and 30 years after the death of Muhammad Quran was compiled , so it is likely to be corrupted. that's why some cruel thing have came in it (modified by bad people) ...... SO that is not the fault of people like Muhammad and Christ anyway.
Now Comes My Question Like this while reading even our book this types of situation arises, Our life style and current level of devotion doesn't allows us to accept.
E.g. "You should Follow the four regulative Principles " easily accepted by all level of readers.
but " Because of their sin one cannot easily put faith on Krishna"
" For demons Krishna is bitter and for devotees he is sweet, " are little hard to believe at one sort.
so mind proposes, just to override those lines which you can't accept ,
is it correct for primary level devotees.
