Under the heading About God I will be publishing edited and adapted versions of essays I wrote while attending Fuller Theological Seminary. These essays were written in the language of Christianity, in language appropriate for a multi-denominational Christian seminary. I do not consider myself exclusively Christian. Aside from a brief flirtation with Sufism (mystical Islam), reading about Zen Buddhism (Alan Watts and D. T. Suzuki) as an undergraduate student, and occasionally doing some yoga (which I should do regularly!), Christianity has been my primary path to God so far.
Harmony of Religions
“Truth is one; sages call it by various names,” the Rig Veda, one of Vedanta’s most ancient texts, declared thousands of years ago.
We are all seeking the truth, Vedanta asserts, and that truth comes in numerous names and forms. Truth—spiritual reality—remains the truth though it appears in different guises and approaches us from various directions. “Whatever path people travel is My path,” says the Bhagavad Gita. “No matter where they walk, it leads to Me.”
