If you have NO idea what other people believe...
or what other religions teach...
If you've not taken the time to truly educate yourself on these matters
or even on the history/development and so forth of your own religion as a whole and the doctrines/teachings therin (in a general sense)
HOW can you honestly claim that your way of faith is the right way, or the only way?
How would you know? If you don't even know what else is out there? How could you possibly know?
Isn't that merely blind faith? Are you really satisfied, or comfortable, with believing blindy?
Wouldn't you want to take the time to weigh the different "options," the various teachings, and test them for validity and so forth for yourself, instead of taking someone else's word for it? Shouldn't your spiritual journey, and (if you believe it is related) the destiny of your soul mean enough to you to test for yourself what you feel is truth in an informed way?
Wouldn't such a lack of actual education or understanding put you at a disadvantage in regard to those who have actually taken the time to learn for themselves? Would you really have any right to presume to know better than they do, or assume any sort of superiority or authority over them?
Or would, due to their better understanding and superior education (so to speak), they perhaps have a leg up on you?Answer Question
