God’s messages in Different Languages?
God is universal. The language in which his message arrives should have been universal too. But it seems like they are not. His messages are broken into parts,time and culture.
The Geeta of Hinduism is in Sanskrit, the Torah of the Jewish religion is in Hebrew, the Bible of Christianity was in Aramaic, the sacred book of Buddhism called the Tipitaka is in Pali and the Koran is in Arabic.
That means those who spoke Sanskrit, Hebrew, Aramaic, Pali and Arabic could read their Holy books, which happens to be in their own languages. For those culture and people who does not speak or write the languages that the holy books arrived in, must learn and teach themselves in order to embrace the desired religion.
If God is universal then would he not have sent his message in a “universal language” which every human being starting from the Aborigines to the Eskimo’s could read and understand?
According to Hinduism God speaks Sanskrit so his words were noted down in Sanskrit, but according to Islam God spoke Arabic so the Koran is in Arabic.
Like love, the taste of apple, the sun and the air – Gods’ word has to be universal for all of mankind to understand, embrace and follow.That is where division created by religion ends and a new universal religion from the real Creator begins.
One universal book which contains one universal language and religion which any human being would be able to read without learning or adapting to a new language.
WHO WROTE THE HOLY BOOKS?
by James Leonard Park
When we set all the holy books of the world on one shelf,there are very few believers who would say that they were all written by supernatural beings.As noted earlier, true believers of any one faith usually believe that their own scripture is the truth whereas they regard all the rest of the holy books with suspicion.
The most reasonable explanation is that all these books were written by human beings.Sometimes a single author is identified.Other books were written by committees, who sometimes attributed their book to one famous person.And the holy books with the longest traditions evolved and changed over the centuries.For example, each Hindu holy book has several authors and editors.
The authors of the books that later came to be regarded as holy scripture often did not think that they were writing scripture at the time. The words—in their own languages—came from their own minds even when they claimed to be receiving revelations from angels or gods.
But once their writings were given special status within one of the organized religions of the world,new doctrines of divine inspiration emerged.
Sometimes the authors did claim to have a direct word from God.For example, the Old Testament prophets often said:
“Thus saith the Lord”.
And then they would proceed to make their own commentary.
