ALL RELIGIONS BELIEVE IN ONE GOD: –
We find that all GODS are understood as different aspects, personalities, or facets of ONE GOD, which pervades the entire universe.
“God hath made of one blood all nations that dwell upon the face of the earth”. The Bible, Acts 17:26
“All creatures are members of one family of God”. Mohammed (Islam)
“Human Beings, all, are as head, arms, trunk, and legs like one another.” The Vedas (Hinduism)
“One thing we know, all men are brothers.”
Chief Seattle (Native American)
“All people are your children, whatever their belief, whatever their shade of skin.” Jewish prayer book
Reading the Bible gives the impression that GOD is much more of a spiri- tual force or energy that exists everywhere, than a man sitting on a throne above the clouds.
The word GOD refers to something that we cannot describe with words, and trying to assign a gender to GOD is putting a limit on something that has no limits. If all the religions are in fact describing, and praying to, the same GOD, then it changes our perspective on the role religion plays in our lives. It makes us easier to believe that this GOD does indeed exist. In fact it challenges us to consider that the chances are quite low that the religions, in all their variety, would describe GOD so similarly just by coincidence, and this forces even the skeptic to ponder the existence of GOD.
