Category:General Sikhism
Date Posted:Saturday, 2/07/2009 8:44 AM MST

Lets start with Worlds oldest religion that is JUDAISM

Definition of God as per Judaism
Torah Clearly states

"Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad"
Yisrael means People

Meaning: Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God! The LORD is One!

The holy book of Islam, the Qur'an, asserts the existence of a single and absolute truth that transcends the world; a unique and indivisible being who is independent of the creation.The indivisibility of God implies the indivisibility of God's (called Allah in Arabic) sovereignty which in turn leads to the conception of universe

God in Islam is a universal God rather than a local, tribal or parochial one; an absolute who integrates all affirmative values and brooks no evil however Muslims believe that the entirety of the Islamic teaching rests on the principle of Tawhid ( Oneness of God ).
Definition Of God as per Christanity:- Is also one but with some differences in othodox and protestors.

Christians believe in one God. Historically, most Christian churches have taught that the nature of God is a mystery; something that must be revealed by special revelation rather than deduced through general revelation. Among Early Christians there was considerable debate over the nature of Godhead, with some factions arguing for the deity of Jesus and others calling for a unitarian conception of God. These issues of Christology were to form one of the main subjects of contention at the First Council of Nicea.

Christian orthodox traditions (Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Evangelical) follow this decision, which was codified in 381 and reached its full development through the work of the Cappadocian Fathers. They consider God to be a triune entity, called the Trinity, comprised of the three "Persons" God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, the three of this unity are described as being "of the same substance" . The true nature of an infinite God, however, is beyond definition, and "the word 'person' is but an imperfect expression of the idea.

Definition of God as Per Hindus

As per Hindus there are Three Gods of Powers that are running the world.
Brahma - The Creator
Vishnu - The Preserver
Shiva - The Distroyer

All hindu faith revolves around all of these three powers However apart from these Three powers there are 33 million other Gods that are worshipped all over India and Abroad.

Definition of God as per Sikhism

"Ik on kar satnaam Karta Purakh Nirbhau Nirvair Akal Moorat Ajooni sehbhang Gurparshad

There is One Universal Creator God. The Name Is Truth. Creative Being Personified. No Fear. No Hatred. Image Of The Timeless One, Beyond Birth, Self-Existent. By Guru's Grace

The Sikh holy scriptures refer to the One God who pervades the whole of Space and is the creator of all beings in the whole Universe. The following quotation from the Guru Granth Sahib highlights this point:

"Chant, and meditate on the One God, who permeates and pervades the many beings of the whole Universe. God created it, and God spreads through it everywhere. Everywhere I look, I see God. The Perfect Lord is perfectly pervading and permeating the water, the land and the sky; there is no place without Him."

—Guru Granth Sahib, Page 782

The Sikhs believe that God has many names - but they call God VāhiGurū. The word Guru means teacher in Sanskrit Similarly, the name Hari, Raam, Allah, Paarbrahm, Krsna which are names of God are frequently mentioned in the Sikh holy scriptures. The same god of the Muslims, Hindus, etc is known as the Akal Purakh (which means 'the true immortal', i.e God) or Waheguru, the primal being.

It is also stated in Guru Granth Sahib ji that:

Awal Allah Noor Upaya, Kudrat kae sab bandey ek noor tae sabh jag upjaya, kaun bhaley kaun mandey

Which means that from that god we all are created nobody is above or beneath anyone.

" Nanak Naam chardi kala tere bhane sarbat da bhala"
Sikhs pray for the welfare of whole mankind

As Guru Nanak Dev ji also said about anti castism
" Manas ki sabe jaat eik hi pehchaanbo "
All humanity belongs to one caste

As you can read above all four Big religions apart from Hinduism has same openion that God is one.

So the question is either Judaism,chritanity,Islam and Sikhism are non beleivers of Hinduism Or Hinduism is non beleiver of all four big religions but the saddest part of all is Obama(the most influential personality of the world didn't recognize Sikhism).Compairing Sikhs as non beleivers is very very Saddest part of his speech.

Though he is a President of the most influential country of the world so what so ever he speaks world listens and the truth is he did not mentioned Sikhism as a religion in his speech thats very sad news Coz he is not recognizing the revolution that gives freedom to all humanity and wants to integrate all humanity to one by removing all differences.

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fateh
Soon her will know very well what a Sikh is. SK
