    Can we use all the Religions in our spiritual effort?

    Think that you are the universal human being and not a Hindu or a Christian or a Muslim. You belong to all the Religions, which are the same syllabus in different languages. The same Lord appeared in different forms. Every Religion has a Gem. Use all the Gems in your spiritual life. Are you not using the Muslim petrol, scientific technology of Christians and analytical brain of Hindus in your materialistic life? Similarly you can use the merit of each Religion. Suppose paddy is grown in one part, pulses are grown in another part and vegetables are grown in some other part of the country. The department of civil supplies is moving rice, pulses and vegetables through out the country so that every person in the country has rice, pulses and vegetable curry in his meal plate. Such a meal only can give the full satisfaction to every body.

    Muslims are famous in regularity, discipline and firmness in the faith of the Lord. Even if it is not a holiday and even if it is working time and even in the journey they will pray the Lord. Hindus worship the Lord in the leisure time and Christians worship the Lord on a holiday. Similarly the love of Christians is a Gem. They love even their enemies and give funds to the spiritual centers of other Religions also. In Hindus tolerance is the Gem. They worship different forms of the same Lord. Therefore have firm faith and discipline like a Muslim. Show love even to your enemies like a Christian. Worship the different forms of the same Lord of all the Religions in the same manner like a Hindu. All these merits are like rivers merging in the ocean of spiritualism. Be a sea fish. Don’t be a stagnant river fish. All the Religions in the advanced stage mix and become one and the same in the spiritual ocean.

    One need not change ones own relgion, since there is only one GOD.
    My main aim to propagate the divine knowledge
    On this earth is Universal Spirituality
    For World Peace, because there should not be difference
    Based on the religion, two people should not fight
    For the sake of Nivrutti, which is reaching the Lord.
    Nivrutti is related to Lord and is very sacred.
    Should one stab another for the sake of this?
    In India have you not heard of a Muslim stabbing Hindu
    And vice-versa just for the sake of religion?
    There is meaning if two fight for wealth etc.,
    Which is Pravrutti, Pandavas and Kauravas fought
    With each other for wealth, it is justified
    Both belong to the same Hindu religion
    They did not fight for the religion
    It is shameful for the Lord to see such fights!
    The same Lord is in two different dresses.

    And you both are fighting for the difference in the dress!
    You are not recognizing that the same teacher came
    And taught the same syllabus in two different languages.
    To one class He came in red shirt and to another class
    He came in white shirt, you are fighting for His shirts!
    You are fighting for the two languages, which differ.
    The teacher is the same and the syllabus is the same.
    You sit and analyze the contents of His teaching.
    You treat the teacher as your Master in your section.
    Is He not the Master for the other section also?
    Both the sections constitute the whole school.
    You say that He is the Master of the whole school.

    The school consists off two distinct sections vividly.
    If you say that He is the Master of the whole school,
    The school must contain only your section, then only
    Your statement is right, but the school shows two sections.
    Your statements are contradicting each other clearly.
    Hindus say that Brahman is the creator, Muslims say
    That Allah is creator, Christians say that the creator is
    Jehovah, all say that the creation is this entire world.

    If Hindus say that Brahman created India, and if
    Muslims say that Allah created Arabian countries and
    If Christians say that Jehovah created the western countries,
    The problem is solved, there can be three Gods together,
    Who have created the three parts of the earth separately.
    But this is not so, each religion says that their God only
    Created the entire world, unfortunately there is one world!
    One world only! Come on, all of you sit together here
    And give me the final conclusion after debate, otherwise,
    The scientists are laughing on all of you! Shame to all!

    They criticize that these religions do not have even
    The basic logic, which is the fundamental common sense.
    Because of you, the greatest God is also mocked by them
    They say that the religions are rigid conservatisms!
    Even a small boy is putting this question to all of you.

    Stop all your discourses and first answer this question.
    If you want to say that God created the entire world,
    You have to accept that there is one God only always
    And that His names are all the above three names.
    We see in the world a single person having three names.
    If there is one God, He only created this entire world.
    All the human beings are invariably His children only.
    No Father is partial to a single child and therefore
    He must have preached the same knowledge to all
    In different languages and in different methodologies
    To different levels, this is Universal Spirituality.

    The religions of the world all contradict one another in one aspect or another therefore it would only be logical to choose one to the exclusion of the others.
    If you try to blend the religions that would only cause chaos and confusion.

    Sometimes it was necessary to blend your religion with another to preserve the practice and rituals your culture came to understand or at least have a strong belief in.

    I can understand what's being stated here, but I do believe that for one to be perfect in the spirit they need not take on that of other religions, for the faith the Son has brought us when He came as a sacrifice for our sins should be enough, if one follows in his step without fault.

    Just because there are many Christians who don't do that which we have been taught in the faith doesn't mean there are things missing in which we need to draw from other religions; it means in that persons life, there are things missing in which they need to listen to the Father more carefully.

    Worshiping only on a holiday is not taught in the faith, but that we worship the Father always. The Son has brought us salvation for eternity, so in return we love, fear, and worship our KING for eternity, for He is our Savior. The Son has brought us life forevermore, and has proven His own love by His sacrifice and resurrection from the dead the 3rd day, so we have a duty to prove our love, and that doesn't include taking on all ways of the world into our faith, but taking on the one Way the Father has given us.

    World peace is not what we're working for, because men will continue to war so long as there is greed and sin, but once the Father restores all things, then peace will truly be had, but this comes only of our KING, the Most High.
