    Why are people indulged in killing each other in the name of God?

    Ans. The original founders of the religions were the human incarnations of the same God like Krishna, Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha etc. Every religion says that their God only created this entire earth or this entire humanity. Unfortunately, there is only one earth and this proves that there is only one God mentioned by all the religions. Since God is one and the same, there cannot be contradicting concepts between the religions. But we find some contradictions and people are divided based on these contradictions. This division is leading to quarrels and finally killing each other. These contradictions cannot be from God because there is only one God as said above.

    These contradictions were introduced into the religions by some misinterpretations of the followers only in the name of God. Hence the killing is also done in the name of God only. Q`ran says that you should protect even the follower of other religion and convey the message of Allah to him. It is left to him to follow or not. Hiranyakashipu worshipped Lord Shiva and his son Prahlada ( a great devotee) worshipped Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu killed Hiranyakashipu not because he is worshipping Lord Shiva but because he tortured Prahlada to change his religion of worshipping Vishnu. In fact Shiva is Vishnu (Shivashcha Naarayanah…Veda). The conclusion of this is that God will punish you if you torture the devotee of any religion obstructing the freedom of his religion. Prahlada did not force his father to worship Vishnu. The same God exists in different forms in different religions. Hinduism is a mini model of unity in diversity that should exist in the universe as universal spirituality.

    I believe the answer is because these people lack understanding to what the Father wants from His faithful. There was righteous killing back then, yes, but in this age of grace, that isn't so since we have all been offenders to the Father in our sins.

    How can one who committed a heinous crime think he has a right to condemn another to die for theirs? It's hypocrisy, which the Father hates, so we must go away from the hypocrites and show compassion, love, mercy, and forgiveness just as we have been shown by the Father and the Son. This shows that we want to be like unto the Father, which is pleasing to the Most High, and shows we understand the sacrifice in the body the Son made for our sins so that we may live.

    It shows we take to heart in belief His resurrection from the dead, and know that in faithful works towards our brothers and sisters of the earth, we will have the same in life eternal, just as the Only Begotten has shown for proof.

    No faithful should be seeking to take away a life of this earth, but saving one to the Father in Heaven by Way of the Son, our savior. Blessings!
