Essence one but approaches different
All religions try to benefit people, with the same basic message of the need for love and compassion, for justice and honesty, for God can be realized through all paths. All religions are true. The important thing is to reach the roof. You can reach it by stone stairs or by wooden stairs or by bamboo steps or by a rope. You can also climb up by a bamboo pole. Such ideas are popular in today’s so-called tolerant or pluralistic society. In fact, those who think otherwise are often viewed as narrow-minded, even bigoted. What is your opinion? Do you feel that all religions ultimately lead to the same God? Does it matter which faith a person belongs to?
God, through His Messengers, has adapted His one religion to meet the needs of each age in which it has been revealed—so the major world religions are like many chapters of one book. If a chapter were missing, the book would be incomplete.
Religions are classified into many such as Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Jainism, Buddhism etc……… They are different from every religion but our God is only one. God has many faces but he is only one. God is seen as Allah, Ishwar and many but he is one only one…….. He sees everyone by one eye and shower equally upon us his blessings and he equally punish wrong doer. God never does discrimination but we do that. God can’t differentiate his children but we do that. So, God is one and one…
I truly believe that all religions have something worthwhile to teach, but each of us ultimately decides what we will believe in and what we will not. It doesn’t matter what religion you are a part of, I guarantee that there are certain tenets of your religion that you disagree with. That’s because YOUR beliefs are subjective and are actually only between you and God, and no one else.
The religion you are a part of simply fore fills MOST of your spiritual needs, but not all. It is just comforting being in an organised religion where we know that everyone who honestly adheres to most of our religion’s beliefs will be blessed and allowed into heaven. In the end though, you will answer to God, not your religion but for your beliefs.
It is my opinion that Our God is tolerant of all religions. He doesn’t care that humans have devised so many ways to worship him. It is my belief that there is only one God. He is called by many names and worshipped in many ways by different religions, BUT he will judge each of us using the exact same criteria that will not be based upon any particular religion’s beliefs. It will be based upon our relationships with each other and the type of lives we lived. Until everyone recognises that each of us contains the true religion within ourselves, because it unites us all as one with God, we will never have peace within ourselves or with each other. These are the things that God will ultimately judge us by. So, worship God as your heart tells you to and search for the answers you need to satisfy the questions you have, but please “Do not blame God for man’s mistakes”.
