Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 4 Text 40
ajnas casraddadhanas ca
nayam loko sti na paro
na sukham samsayatmanah
ajnah--a fool who has no knowledge in standard scriptures; ca--and; asraddadhanah--without faith in revealed scriptures; ca--also; samsaya--of doubts; atma--a person; vinasyati--falls back; na--never; ayam--in this; lokah--world; asti--there is; na--nor; parah--in the next life; na--not; sukham--happiness; samsaya--doubtful; atmanah--of the person.
But ignorant and faithless persons who doubt the revealed scriptures do not attain God consciousness; they fall down. For the doubting soul there is happiness neither in this world nor in the next.
At the beginning of his purport, Srila Prabhupada says; Out of many standard and authoritative revealed scriptures, the Bhagavad-gita is the best., and I agree with him!
