Question: Why Do People Say that Their God is the Only Real God?

I really love whatever you tell us about Lord Sri Krishna. I also understand that we have to obey the spiritual rule of surrendering to Him. Why do the members of all the religions in the world say that their God is the only real God? Secondly. why don't we claim ourselves to be good human beings rather then claiming ourselves as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, etc.

Answer: Because They are Lacking in Common Sense

Even though God is indeed one, many people who claim to be religious think that only someone in their religion can approach Him. This really does not make any sense because God is the father of all living beings. Whether I address Him in English as God, in Sanskrit as Krishna, or in Arabic as Allah, I am still praying to the same person. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people do not understand that God is multilingual. They must think that He only understands their language and nobody else's. If even an ordinary human being can be multi-lingual, why can't God be multi-lingual? Anybody with a little common sense can understand this. It is obvious then that these wranglers who think that God can be only by addressed by the name they call Him, are completely lacking in common sense.

You mentioned the "good human beings", but I do not see where are the good human beings nowadays when practically everyone is engaged in all varieties of sinful activities such as cow killing, baby killing, and torturing Mother earth by destroying the environment. Although they try to hide behind the cloak of "I'm a Hindu", "I'm a Muslim", "I'm a Christian", etc their sinful activities are being observed by higher authorities and they will be held accountable for them at the time of death. The way to our becoming good and perfect human beings is by identifying ourselves instead as servants of God and striving diligently to becoming perfect in our service to Him.
