Justice And Prosperity On Earth

2,000 years ago the Jews were in a pretty tight spot. They were under brutal Roman occupation. The God that liberated them from Egyptians did not feel the need to liberate them from the Romans. There was a point to be made. Jesus refused to be a "king like David" Prophet Isaiah talked about. There was a point to be made.

The point is, if you are born as a human being on earth the most important thing you need to do is to do God's will and secure your place in paradise upon death. No matter the poverty (Jesus had no property to his name), no matter if you are subjected to torture, no matter if you are put to death, you want to do God's will and secure your place in paradise.

And that is about accepting Jesus. The Koran points towards Jesus. The Geeta points towards Jesus. The Bible is scripture, but so is the Koran. Some of the very best adjectives used to describe God anywhere are in the Koran. The Bible is scripture, but so is the Geeta. In the Geeta the Holy Father speaks about Himself in the first person.

This does not mean the Christians were right all along and the others were wrong. God has spoken to a few different peoples. Maybe the Christian label has outlived its importance. Five blind men who have been touching the elephant should now perhaps talk to each other and get a fuller picture of God.

It is a biblical prophecy that the Gospel will be preached in all nations on earth. That prophecy will be fulfilled. But that does not mean the Bible will be the only scripture left standing. Other scriptures are still relevant. The messages from the two human incarnations of the Holy Father, as Lord Rama 7,000 years ago and Lord Krishna 5,000 years ago, are relevant for every nation on earth. It is worship of Lord Rama that creates strong families in India. Strong families are needed everywhere.

Lord Krishna Himself points towards Jesus. There is absolutely no logic to the Hindus rejecting Jesus. God is one.

But once you secure your place in heaven justice and prosperity on earth also become important. God wants you to be happy right here on earth. Ask and you shall be given.
