“Documentary Proof”, “Reasonable Proof” and “Actual Proof”
When the divine truth or law is preached, there are three kinds of proofs to accompany it. These are “Documentary Proof”, “Reasonable Proof” and “Actual Proof”.
“Documentary Proof” means that it is written in writing
The first one, “Documentary Proof,” means that it is written in writing. It means that the content of the teachings are written in the form of sentences and have been left behind.
For example, the words and teachings of Buddha, who preached the law in the Indian era, have been preserved in written form.
The Buddha’s disciples compiled his teachings in the form of a collection of Buddhist scriptures, which are written down in the form of written proof.
“Reasonable Proof” means that the laws that penetrate the universe are logically revealed
The second, “Reasonable Proof,” means that it reveals the truth. It means that the laws that penetrate the universe are logically explained.
Jesus Christ, like Buddha, was born on the ground, played the role of a savior, and preached the law. He left behind various words and teachings that reveal the truth.
For example, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you.” This means that you should stop judging others because if you judge others, you will be judged as well.
This means that what you do will come back to you. This is the law of the universe, called the law of cause and effect, and he is talking about that law.
“Actual Proof” means to perform a miracle
The third, “Actual Proof,” is to perform a miracle that can be seen and felt. In other words, to actually make something that seems like a miracle happen in front of people.
This is symbolized, for example, by Moses’ escape from his pursuers by splitting the Red Sea in half when he was in a desperate situation with the Israelites, as described in the book of Exodus.
This is not a fairy tale or fiction at all, but something that actually happened before the eyes of the people of that time.
As proof of God’s messenger
It is not enough to have only one of these three proofs. It is a combination of all three, even though their weights may differ.
Even though Buddha, Jesus, and Moses all had their own personalities and specialties, the fact remains that they all preached the law and the divine principle with “Documentary Proof”, “Reasonable Proof” and “Actual Proof”.
The truthfulness of a person who preaches and conveys the divine truth can be proven through these three proofs.
