WHICH HOLY BOOK IS THE WORD OF GOD
By Harmanjit Singh Saini
September 26, 2018
[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]
If a God has created the universe, including mankind, a natural question for us to ask is: “has He provided mankind an instruction manual on how to live our lives?” And where would we find that instruction manual? Since only religion deals with God, the logical place to look is the scriptures of various religions.
The world has many religions. Some are based on the existence of a supreme Creator God while others are not. Scriptures of religions not based on the existence of God are mere men’s philosophies and can be ignored as we are looking for God’s instruction manual for mankind. So, the right place to look is the holy books of the religions based on the existence of God. Only 5 religions are based on the existence of God: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism. So, the holy books of only these 5 religions have been analyzed.
Our next challenge is to develop criteria for testing which holy book of which religion is God-inspired in its entirety, if any, so that we can safely use it as an instruction manual for our lives. The most suitable criterion is that the holy book should demonstrate God’s almighty power in some way. One way for God to do so would be to foretell many things in the holy book and bring them to pass precisely as foretold. That would prove that the words of that holy book are the truth. For this reason, we will use prophecy (foretelling of future events and their fulfillment) as one criterion to test if a particular holy book is the inspired word of God.
Secondly, the holy book should be scientifically accurate, and there should be no errors in it. And thirdly, the holy book should be accurately transmitted through centuries down to our time.
This book analyzes the holy books of Christianity (the Bible), Judaism (Old Testament of the Bible), Islam (the Koran), Hinduism (the Gita) and the Guru Granth of the Sikhs according to the criteria established to determine which one is the true inspired word of God. Analysis shows the happy result that only one holy book passes our test and is indeed the true word of God.
