Role of Christians in Science and Law
Lack of access to education is considered the root of poverty, slavery and injustice in the society but Education reform the society. Humans understand humanity through knowledge and education, people stopped killing and promoted human rights to pursue peace. Do you know these were Christians and Jews institutions that spread education in every corner of the world and worked to develop third world countries? The world changers like Moses “A Jew Prophet, A Judge and a Lawgiver of Israel” who introduced the Judicial system, Law, foreign Affairs and Global trade system 4000 years before. The history-maker “Savior of Mankind, A reformer, A Revolutionary, A Prince of Peace” Jesus Christ who taught the world about Humanity and Peace and gave the world a new hope for Global Peace. The great christian Scientists like Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, Graham Bell, Albert Einstein who discovered the universe all were christians. We can also be the World Changers, if we follow their footsteps.
What Quran and Allah says about Education 1400 Years Before:
Do you know that in the Life of Islamic Prophet when he was 40 years old and started the religion of Islam, it were christians who educated the Arabs and early muslims. Even Islamic Prophet and has companions went to a christian king to get shelter as emigrants because of the prosecution of Makkans against muslims and their new religion. The importance of education is repeatedly emphasized in the Quran with frequent injunctions, such as “God will exalt those of you who believe and those who have knowledge to high degrees” (Quran 58:11), “O my Lord! Increase me in knowledge” So high [above all] is Allah , the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not hasten with [recitation of] the Qur’an before its revelation is completed to you, and say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.”(Quran 20:114), and “As God has taught him, so let him write” (Quran 2:282).
We know that God blessed Christians around the world, first Quran says God will exalt those who believe and who have knowledge to high decrees, it was always Christians and Jews. Even Allah Ordered Prophet of Islam in Quran 10:94 “So, (O prophet,) even if you are in doubt about what We have sent down to you, ask those who read the Book of Holy Scripture (revealed) before you. Surely, truth has come to you from your Lord, so never be among those who are suspicious.” This verse is also about christians and Jews, and Allah is ordering to ask and learn from christians and jews.
Modern Development in Middle East and West:
Today’s development in the world, Middle East and Europe and America, Christian, secular and muslims world, it is all by Christians education that change the Whole world. The world changers like Moses, King Solomon, who introduced the Judicial system, Law, foreign Affairs, Global trade system and social laws to the world. Jesus Christ who taught the world about Humanity and Peace, even the birth of Jesus Christ divided human history in two periods BC and AC. Jesus had a universal concern for those who suffered that transcended the rules of the ancient world. His compassion for the poor and the sick led to institutions for lepers, the beginning of modern-day hospitals. The leaders, humanitarian and philanthropists movement raised Peacemakers. The great christian Scientists like Robert Boyle, Michael Faraday, Gregor Mendel, Isaac Newton, Alexander Graham Bell, Charles Barkla, Albert Einstein who discovered and invented and a series of calculations that discover the universe.
What Holy Bible says about Education 4000 Years Before:
The Holy Bible says Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding. Proverb 2:6 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? Proverbs 1:22 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere…(James 3:13-18) The Holy Bible is ancient mother book of wisdom, even other religious books call Holy Bible “BOOK OF WISDOM” or “HOLY SCRIPTURE”.
Scientists and Knowledge:
Its great to know the scientists that changed the world, as we know it through their contributions and discoveries. Scientists that invented such medicines that cure patients and save lives and today modern world call doctors as “Messiah” for their contribution in saving lives. But on the other hand, we also know that these Scientists, doctors, philosophers all died and some time they died because of diseases. Albert Einstein, a great scientist who died of heart failure in 1955, he also said “Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Holy Bible says “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6 Now where christians have spread education into this whole world, christian institutes, universities, schools, hospitals, organizations are serving humanity. In One Part of the world, in Islamic Countries (those Islamic Countries who get billions of dollars donations) these christians are facing oppression and persecution. They do not have resources to study, or get higher education. From decades the doors of good jobs were closed for them, they were made poor with government strategies and they were forced to do low income jobs of cleaning as sweepers. Parents became unable to provide basic needs to their children. We urge to all International organizations, christian institutes and world changers to empower Pakistani christian students and to create opportunities, scholarships, resources and business opportunities to help persecuted christians.
