“The basic message of all the sacred scriptures is the same. What is different is how human beings have been interpreting them. There is nothing “wrong” with having different interpretations. What may not benefit you, however, is separating yourself over these differences, making each other wrong because of these differences, and killing each other as a result of these differences.
The point is there are MANY holy writings and sacred scriptures, and you act as if there is only ONE. It is YOUR sacred scripture that is REALLY sacred. All the rest are poor substitutes at best, and blasphemies at worst. Not only is there one Sacred Scripture, there is also only one way to INTERPRET that Scripture: your way.
This spiritual arrogance is what has caused you your greatest sorrow as a species. You have suffered more – and caused OTHER people to suffer more – over your ideas about God than over your ideas about anything else in the human experience. You have turned the source of the greatest joy into the source of your greatest pain.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “The New Revelations”
