When man would dare to compare one religion to another…
as if they are all but what mankind has soon imagined;
therein the crux of the matter to gain foothold to the slope
of understanding, so fragile, so left untold, God not queried
to this pondering of such depth… the height thought reached
for left unattained… rationale of the unrestrained mind or heart
assuming to think above the scope of issues faced by humanity,
there goes the sanity, to fathom not what God did from the start.
There are some who would try and compare religions, based on key aspects… and (seemingly) based on responses to them, as if they were one and the same. This leaves me flabbergast, when people slight aspects to religion containing ‘prophecy’ and some of that prophecy (that which has already come to pass [happened] and that which will come to pass) yet to be realized by humanity. In regard to the ‘comparison’ mentioned above, and they say it is without bias, there can be nothing more biased toward God than information pertaining to God… expounded upon it as if it is the authority on God and not God Himself.
12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
[This below is from the Matthew Henry Commentary on the passage above]
The apostle speaks as one amazed, and swallowed up in admiration, wondering at the height and depth, and length and breadth, of the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. The more we know of other things, the less we wonder; but the further we are led into gospel mysteries, the more we are affected by them. While God is for us, and we keep in his love, we may with holy boldness defy all the powers of darkness.
30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
