Do Not Reverence Human Beings (5:44)

Honoring Previous Scripture

[5:44] We have sent down the Torah,* containing guidance and light. Ruling in accordance with it were the Jewish prophets, as well as the rabbis and the priests, as dictated to them in GOD’s scripture, and as witnessed by them. Therefore, do not reverence human beings; you shall reverence Me instead. And do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price. Those who do not rule in accordance with GOD’s revelations are the disbelievers.
*5:44 The Torah is a collection of all the scriptures revealed through all the prophets of Israel prior to Jesus Christ, i.e., today’s Old Testament. Nowhere in the Quran do we find that the Torah was given to Moses.

Pope worship, Mary worship, saint worship, etc.

What does it mean when it says don’t trade away God’s revelations for a cheap price?
This occurs when people turn their back against God and commit sin for a quick apparent gain in this world. If people can’t keep their covenant with God how are we suppose to expect people to keep their promise with you.
