Oneness of God of different religions

Oneness of God of different religions

Every religion says that its God created the entire earth and entire humanity. But, unfortunately there is only one earth containing this humanity. Due to one earth, there must be one God only and hence all the religions are calling the same God by different names. Since the God is unimaginable and nobody can even imagine Him, all the names are indicating that unseen and unimaginable God only. This unimaginable God is mediated by energy. Such mediated God is also one and the same because energy is also one and the same for all religions. This mediated God is called as Brahman by Hinduism, Jehovah by Christianity and Allah by Islam. The absolute unimaginable God as well as the medium [Energy] are one and the same and hence there is no difference between these three names.

Of course, when the absolute God gets mediated by human bodies, there may be minute difference in the form, culture and language of the external human form as in the case of Krishna of Hinduism, Jesus of Christianity and Mohammad of Islam. Even here the material of the human body is one and the same except slight variation in the external form. From the point of absolute God, here also there is no trace of difference and hence all these three human forms are also one and the same.

You're making the assumption that because there is one God and many religions, every religion must be talking about the same God. That is only true if every religion is equally true.

Hindus have many gods ,not one.
The character of the one god of the monotheistic religions apart from Christianity is vastly different to the God of the Bible hence can't be the same one.
The God of the Bible forbids worship of other gods hence if all the one this commandment would be superfulous .Obviously this can not be.

Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God's ideal for His children. ...

You sound like a Baha'i. :) And I don't mean that in a bad way. Look it up.

Actually angw8, most polytheistic religions, including Hinduism, are actually monotheistic once you dig down deeper. The "gods" of Hinduism are actually different aspects of a more monotheistic concept.

I am Muslim and I wanted to point out that we do not believe that Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) was not Allah (God) in human form. He (Muhammad) was simply a messenger and prophet of God and he is not worshiped by Muslims. Muslims do not worship anything besides the Creator. Everything else has been created by God and therefore can not be worshiped.
