What is meant by “force of moral certitude”in this quote?
“Apart from the soul’s recognition of the Manifestation of God, nothing awakens so great a sense of confidence and vitality in human consciousness-both individual and collective-as does the force of moral certitude. In the Kitab-i-Aqdas, laws that are basic to both personal and community life have been reformulated in the context of a society that embraces the whole range of human diversity. New laws and concepts address the further needs of a human race that is entering on its collective coming of age. ” “, is Baha’u’llah’s appeal, “Cast away that which ye possess, and, on the wings of detachment, soar beyond all created things. Thus biddeth you the Lord of creation, the movement of Whose Pen hath revolutionized the soul of mankind.” **
(** Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph 54.) [Universal House of Justice, Century of Light, p. 140]
