[Unless otherwise stated, the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible has been for reference, but common modern words such as you for ‘thou’, ‘thee’ and ‘ye’ have been used, so that readers not familiar with the KJV Bible may find it easier to read. Mostly the New King James Version (NKJV) translation has been used as an alternate]
The world has many religions. Only five are based on the existence of a supreme Creator God while others are not. In Hinduism, Krishna claims that he is the supreme creator and sustainer of the universe. But it acknowledges the existence of other gods and demi-gods. Sikhism claims that there is only one supreme God, and all others are His creation. Allah of Islam claims that he is the only God and there is none other. Is the supreme God in all these religions the same God?
There are vast differences in these three religions. Each of them has different holy books as their scripture which do not resemble each other in any way. This leads one to suspect that the claimed supreme God in each of these religions is not the same true Almighty God. Which one of these is the true religion, if any? If anyone of them is the true religion, that its holy book should be the word of God.
How do we evaluate whether the holy book of a religion is the word of God? The only fool proof criterion is demonstration of the almighty power of God in the pages of the holy book. God’s almighty power can only be demonstrated by God foretelling numerous events and demonstrating His power to bring about those events precisely as foretold.
A second way to determine that the holy book is NOT the word of God is to determine if it contains unrealistic tales, too fantastic to be believed. The third way to reject the divine inspiration of a holy book is if it contains scientific or historical errors.
We will use these three criteria in this book to determine whether the holy books of Hinduism, Sikhism and Islam are God inspired, and whether God’s almighty power is demonstrated in their pages.
[The author comes from a background of Sikhism on his father’s side (a religion that has borrowed mainly from Hinduism but also some from Islam), and Hinduism on his mother’s side. He studied in a Christian boarding school. He, therefore, has the ideal background to address this issue in depth.]
