Shri Datta Swami

How can we accept the scripture of a certain religion which says that those refusing to accept that religion should be killed?

[This question is part of a Mahā Satsaṅga (grand spiritual discussion) between Swami, Shri Parikshit, Smt. Bindiya and Dr. J S. R. Prasad]

Swami replied: O Learned and Devoted Servants of God! We need not blindly accept every statement of any scripture. Analyzing any statement is necessary to find out whether the statement is genuine or it has been inserted later on. Without this acid test, no statement should be accepted blindly or by force. Even God Krishna Himself said that everything that He preached, should be thoroughly analyzed before accepting it.
