Can someone please explain this to me?
1) "Ganesh, Indra, Varuna, Brahma (et al) are all just demigods."
2) "Siva is a demigod, but the greatest Vaishnava."
3) "But Allah and Jehovah are 'just names for Krishna', the 'Svayam Bhagavan'. They are all God, just different names".
How is this?
Jehovah was just a minor desert deity, elevated to supremacy by Moses. Jehovah, in the 'Old Testament', admits to being a "jealous god", wrathful, and ready to mete out capital punishment (death penalty) at a whim (those who worship or even respect images and/or idols, collecting firewood on the Sabbath, a child disrespecting their parents, and at least 24 other offenses).
Allah was just a minor lunar deity, elevated to supremacy by Mohammed. Allah, in the 'Koran', admits to being violent and wrathful, and ready to mete out capital punishment (death penalty) on a whim (those who worship or even respect images and/or idols, apostasy, collecting firewood on the Sabbath, a child disrespecting their parents, and at least 29 other offenses)
So, why are Allah and Jehovah elevated so? Is it just for political correctness?
Why has Allah and Jehovah been elevated to the same level of Krishna?
According to Moses and Mohammed, Jehovah and Allah, respectively, both claim to be God. Why have their words being taken literally?
So why not accept the words of others who have claimed to be God? For example, Haile Selassie, David Koresh, Jim Jones, Sathya Sai Baba, Sun Myung Moon, Charles Manson, and so on?
Through history, we have seen the results of the words of Moses and Mohammed: wars and violence galore. India has seen the atrocities of these religions.
I just hope no one replies with the "all is one" stuff (i.e., Mayavada philosophy).
