Effect of Sacred Books
To reach any given number or integer, basically we have to add one to one; one or two to two; one, two, three, or four to three or four; and so on. That is 1+1; 1+2 or 2+2; 1+3, 1+4, 2+3, 2+4, 3+3 or 3+4; and so on. Basically, by adding one to N, we can reach a number larger by one than N, that is N+1. However, this is time-consuming.
But if we know all the prime numbers, we can reach any number by multiplying prime number to other prime numbers as many as necessary times. This must be faster.
For us to understand any matter in this world, we have to accumulate experiences step by step. But if we are given some crucial knowledge such as prime numbers in arithmetic, we can swiftly reach a necessary level of understanding and comprehend truth or true meaning of the matter.
The Bible, the Koran, Buddhist scriptures, Confucian books, etc. would give us crucial knowledge about human matters in this world. So, if you learn well these holy books, you can comprehend truth more swiftly than ordinary people who have to accumulate their own experiences and extract truth from them. This is a great effect of reading sacred books.
Nonetheless, without proper experiences but only with knowledge obtained from reading sacred books, you cannot set a target number to calculate or you only know methods to calculate numbers.
That is why Christ Jesus said to abandon everything, including religious bodies, religious titles and positions, and religious arguments and follow him in paths through wilderness, villages, towns, and great cities.

Luk 12:4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
Luk 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
