Image(s) of ‘GOD’ from Hinduism and Christian/Jewism Scriptures!

What’s the image of GOD?

 Now that we know God is outside us..we try to understand whats the image of God? Firstly DOES HE HAVE ANY IMAGE?

mm.. to know whats the image of GOD lets look what ‘The Religious Scriptures’ had to say in it.

 

I begin with Hinduism:

 

Shwetashvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 Verse 19:

 “Na tasya pratima asti”

 “There is no likeness of Him”

 (The Principal Upanishad by S.RadhaKrishnan pg 736&737 and in the Sacred Books of East, Volume 15, The Upanishads Part 2, Page no 253)

 

          Soo..there is no likeness of Him..whatever we portray as God should not have any likeness to anything we see in this world..

  

O my Hindu Readers!

   Dont your God(s) look like humans? may be animals too??

 

Think.. stop0think!

 

Yajur Ved Chapter 32 Verse 3:

 “na tasya pratima asti”

 “There is no image of Him”

 (The Yajurveda by Devi Chand M.A. pg. 377)

 

           wow..what a clear-cut verse!

 

Look O Hindus, ‘Your’ Scripture says ‘There is no image for God’ .

You have ‘thousands of images’ for God.

What are you doing hun..?

 

Shwetashvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 20:

“na samdrse tisthati rupam asya, na caksusa pasyati kas canainam”.

“His form cannot be seen, no one sees Him with the eye”.

(The Principal Upanishad by S. Radhakrishnan pg. 737)

(And in Sacred books of the East Volume 15, the Upanishad part II, Page no. 253)

 

           Got it? His form can never be seen. So who saw God and told you that He got 10 heads and 20 hands and He has snake in His head??

 Really.. WHO TOLD YOU THAT?

 

Yajurved Chapter 40 Verse 9:

“Andhatma pravishanti ye assambhuti mupaste”

“They enter darkness, those who worship natural things.”

           E.g. worship of natural elements air, water, fire, trees etc.

It further continues and says,

“They sink deeper in darkness those who worship sambhuti i.e. created things”

          E.g. created things such as table, chair, idols etc.

(Yajurveda Samhita by Ralph T. H. Griffith pg. 538)

 

      I really don’t want to interpret this, DO I?

You yourself can understand what you are doing now will make you ‘SINK DEEPER IN DARKNESS!’.

 

To my Hindu Readers!

     Seriously I am asking you ‘one question’ HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE READ YOUR SCRIPTURES ‘FULLY’?

Why don’t you follow it then?

 

WHY……..?????

 

I just don’t understand 😦

You are contradicting your Scriptures and that’s not Hinduism anymore!

 

PLEASE THINK!

 

I will now move to the ‘Abrahamic Religions’:

            In all Abrahamic Religions ‘idolatory’ is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

    Within Christianity, Protestants strictly prohibit idols and the ‘Catholics’ are quite ‘convinced’ that ‘God has created man in his form’ so it is ‘OK’ to worship God as man. (??!!)

 

The well-known popular ‘Ten Commandments’ (RSV Exodus 20:3-6) are:

“You shall have no other gods before me.

You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;

you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,

but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

 

         Look.. we should not make any image in the likeness of anything above the ‘heaven’..

 

So.. Michelangelo’s images of GOD .. RIGHT OR WRONG?

 

Exodus 20: 3-5

“Those who hate God make false images of things in heaven and
worship them.”

             mm.. so ‘YOU’ are ‘God-Haters’ or ‘God-Lovers’?

  

Deuteronomy 7:25

“The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire.”

                 woww.. quite SERIOUS.. isn’t it?

 

Exodus 34:12-14

“12)Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:

13) But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:

14) For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God”

 

          So it not only prohibits making images of God but it also ORDERS TO DESTROY THOSE IMAGES.

 

Exodus 20:5

“You shall not worship them.” (False idols and images).

                    NO..NEVER..DONT DO IT..!!

STOP!

 

In the ‘Torah’:

           In a number of places, the Hebrew Bible makes clear that God has no shape or form, and is utterly incomparable; thus no idol, image, idea, or anything comparable to creation could ever capture God’s essence.

For example, when the Israelites were by God in Deut. 4:15, they see no shape or form.  

         The Bible has many terms for idolatry, and their usage represents the horror with which they filled the writers of the Bible.

 

Thus idols were stigmatized as,

1. “non-God” (Deut. 32:17, 21; Jer. 2:11),

2. “things of naught” (Lev. 19:4 et passim),

3. “vanity” (Deut. 32),

4. “iniquity” (1 Sam. 15:23),

5. “wind and confusion” (Isa. 41:29 ),

6. “the dead” (Ps. 106:28),

7. “carcasses” (Lev. 26:30; Jer. 16:18),

8. “a lie” (Isa. 44:20 et passim), and similar epithets.

  

To my Christian Readers!

What is the authenticity that Jesus (Peace be upon him) looked like what you have? What is the proof?

Did Jesus (Peace be upon him) was white-face blue-eyed American? Where did you get this from?

It was hundred years after the disappearance of Jesus (Peace be upon him), they dreamt all these ‘false’ images of him. Most of them are the ‘products’ of Roman Catholic Church and some very unGodly people!.

I am not accusing your scriptures. I am accusing your actions WHICH CONTRADICT YOUR SCRIPTURES!

 

I know of ‘few’ Hindus and ‘few’ Christians/Jews who do not favour idol worship.. GOOD FOR THEM!

But.. quite a handful of people can’t hide something which is happening apparently within their religion..so THINK!

Sought the help of 'wikipedia'.

Is Love God?

29 Mar

 

Is Love God?

 

       Today basically there are two kinds of people, one who says Nature is God and the other one says Love is God.

 

It is easy to correct the one who is saying Love is God because they believe in God. But they err in naming Him.

 

I asked someone, why do you say Love is God?

 

“Why not? God tells us to show love right?” <–This was the reply.

 

Inturn I will ask you a question,

 

“You are telling me to eat well. Can I say that food is you?”

 

“God tells us to show love. How can you say God is Love?”

 

God commands us to love your parents, family, children, neighbours etc. But that doesn’t mean He is Love. Love is one of His attributes.

 

Those who claim that love is God because God tells us to show love, are you really obeying Him?

 

Ask yourself, ARE YOU REALLY OBEYING HIM??

Truly, you are not!!

 

It is impossible to show love to each and everything in this dunya (world).

 

If you see a snake, you kill it.

 

Don’t you beat the burglar who robes in your house?

 

You can’t show love everywhere. You can show love only in those places where it suits best.

 

God is same too. He shows love to whom it suits best. He punishes those who deserve it.

 

But our God says: “My mercy precedes My wrath”. [famous hadith Qudsi]

 

{Hadith generally means ‘Statements of Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)

Hadith Qudsi is a hadith in which Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) says, “Allah says …so n so..”. So it is a statement of Allah, a strong hadith}

 

 Definitely God’s mercy is manifest in everything. HE SHOWS MERCY TO THOSE WHO DENY HIM TOO!!

 

BUT THAT WILL NOT BE AN EVERLASTING MERCY IF YOU TRULY KNOW!!!

 

So it is not logic to say Love is God or Hatred is God. Love, Anger are all attributes of God.

 

TO NOTE: Whenever you say something is God,

 

1. Check whether it is logic or not.

2. Check whether it is contradictory or not.

3. Check whether your mind and soul can accept it or not.

 

Most concepts of God doesn’t fulfill these points and this is the reason why most people deny Religions totally.

 

Some people worship milestones on road side and neem trees which grow on waste water as God!!

 

This is the reason why thinking people deny God when they surely know the above one cannot be a God!!

 

BUT THERE IS A GOD WHICH SUITS ALL THESE 3 POINTS AND MORE ..MY DEAR READERS!!!

 

YOU HAVE TO IDENTIFY HIM.. YOU HAVE TO KNOW HIM!!

 

When you want to know Him, don’t give place to your emotions like,

 

“Oh! My mom will be upset”

“No! My dad will not speak with me”

“Ah! My family will ignore me”

 

IF YOU FEEL THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN THE CONCEPT OF GOD YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT.. JUST THROW IT OUT..

 

GIVE PRIORITY TO YOUR BRAIN AND INTELLIGENCE.

 

Because,

 

GOD IS SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT IN EACH AND EVERYONE’S LIFE.

 

 

If you fail to find the right answer for “WHO IS YOUR LORD?” there is NO SUCCESS HEREAFTER.

 

If you can find the RIGHT ANSWER for “WHO IS YOUR GOD?” the rest of your life goes smoothly.

 

YOU ARE THE SUCCESOR OF SUCCESSORS.

 

I bid you happy ‘THINKING’.

 

STOP 0 THINK!!!!!!!
