ACCOUNTABILITY TO GOD
It is essential that man should have within his reach, a super formula for life's management. God provides just such a formula-a complete principle for life's management. Human beings are not like machines, controlled by a mechanical system;nor are they like animals, governed by their instincts. Human beings enjoy freedom. They take decisions about their actions of their own free will. Now the question arises as how to keep man to the right course, how to make him consistently disciplined in his behaviour. History shows the ineffectiveness of all worldly measures in this connection, whether social pressures, enforcement of the law of the land or the appeals of reformers. Experience shows that the pressure of society is limited, if not totally ineffective. There are so many loopholes in the law that it is not difficult for wrongdoers to find a way out. The reformers' bid to reform people is nothing but appeals; and appeals alone cannot bring about a revolution in human life.
