Great spiritual teachers attain a refined vision of God and humanity.
Unfortunately they are often unable to effectively communicate this vision to their disciples.
Therefore we get a lesser vision in scriptures.
And so we must know the authors and writers of scriptures in order to discern the truth.
The authors and writers of the scriptures can only express their understanding of the vision according to what they themselves can understand.
"The water takes on the color of the container." (Sufi saying)
And so we must decipher what we read.
