Explore the intertwined histories and cultures of the major religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.


It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like 'Where do we come from?' and 'How do I live a life of meaning?' These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that's not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.

Buddhism is nothing more than a set of practices. It's not a religion and it doesn't claim to be the true one. If there'd be a religion that'd be true and not christianity, it will be Islam. You may want t look into that.

well, Islam gave a criteria of god in surah Al-Ikhlas chapter 112 verse 1-4 basically saying 1. say hes Allah one and only 2. Allah the absolute and eternal 3.He neither begets nor is born 4. Theres nothing like him. if one of those 3000 gods fits in this criteria all Muslim have got no objection in accepting that god as our god

I think the reason why some muslims turn bad is that they derive their own interpretation of shahadad instead of believing that everything is one they want all others also to beleive that god is one and his name is allah this just makes life harder for normal muslims who really do follow shahadad beleive in one god but dont force others

Did you copy that from Islam? As Islam believes everyone is born Muslim except what they choose when they grow up and decide, that's why Islam believes all children who have not reached maturity go to heaven even if they are born in non Muslim home.

QURAN ALGORITHM - confirms every verse and chapter, CANNOT BE CHANGED!!! Do it yourself. IS THIS HUMANLY POSSIBLE? Remember- the Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad over a period of 23 years! Use EXEL for ease of calculation. 1st column 1 to 114 (number of chapters) Column 2 write the number of corresponding verses in each chapter. Column 3- add column 1&2. Column 4 even numbers of column 3. Column 5 odd numbers from column 3. Note here 57 entries each in 4&5. (The book is balanced) Now add all entries in column 1. Column 2 and then 4&5. SEE AND BE AMAZED!!! THE ALMIGHTY HAS PROTECTED HIS BOOK FROM CORRUPTION!!! You cannot add or remove a single verse or chapter!!! THE ALMIGHTY IS GREAT- ALLAHU AKHBAR!

I am the the way, the truth and the life- John 14:6. Jesus is the only one who performed miracles and was resurrected from the dead, the death that happened due to him sacrificing himself for our sins. Anyone who is unsure about their faith PLEASE go to an evangelist church and you will feel the love of Jesus. Your father who died for you. I am speaking as a former Muslim, my life has never been the same since giving my life to Jesus, and I am truly grateful and blessed that by grace I was brought towards the righteous path, my spirit has never felt so full, and I have never felt so much joy.

One thing about Islam that many don’t address is that even the most learned Muslim scholars can’t understand 25% of the Qur’an. It has stories without proper beginnings and endings, and directly contradicts the others holy books of Islam, The Torah and the Christian Bible (the Old and New Testaments I mean). Also, there is no place in the Qur’an that says the Bible has been influenced by human corruption, despite many Muslims saying so. I would definitely search videos about “Christianity vs Islam” or “The Bible vs the Qur’an” as I got most of not all of the previous facts from one such video that was about an interview with an evangelist to Muslims

You can't describe Hinduism like this there is hundreds of different school of thoughts within Hinduism and secondly shri krishna is just another part of hindu school of thought, And there is other school of thoughts that believes in addvaitvad and dvaitvad Overall you can't describe Hinduism or sanatan culture in one video You have to be lost in this system to understand it and at the end you will find yourself

Just to make things clear: Although the comments are peaceful ,but I must explain something , religion is a thing , and the followers are another thing ... If the religion has a book that contains all the information, you gotta judge this religion based on the book not based on the people , but if the religion has no book then it might be a problem for you because there is a high chance that opinions are different from one follwers to the other ...

Humans owe their successes as a species to cooperation and learning from the experience of their fellow man. We are weak as individuals, but incredibly powerful as a group. I have always felt that religion is a story that reinforces this strength, by acknowledging that our individual power comes from our belonging to a group greater than ourselves, and provides the "rules" that ensures we work in concert with our fellow man. Faith in the community is the essence of spiritualism.
