This question is marked "community wiki".

Picture if you will a series of paths, crossing in the woods. From one direction comes Jesus Christ, from another Gautama Buddha, from another Lord Krishna, from another the Prophet Muhammad, and from another the Prophet Zoroaster. They all meet totally unexpected, and begin talking. What do you think their discussion would be like? Would they join forces for the divine good of humanity, disagree and continue on their way, or be intrigued by their differing teachings? Any and all answers welcome.

Well I think they would all understand each other. Example: Jesus use a cup to represent the flesh,in Tao they say shape the clay in to a vessel,or a pot or a jar is used. Jesus say the wind blows wherever it please you hear the sound it makes but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going.

It is like this with every one born of the spirit. They are like the wind. Buddha say where does the fire go when it has gone out? You see they use different word and analogies to speak about the unspeakable.

The logia is more important then the words in themselves. I will give you example, what word would you use to explain something to someone when that that you speak about has no words in existence to speak about it? You would have to find something similar and logical to explain it using the right words to not put people in error, so you would use thing that they know about like casting stones (physical action) but inside the cup judgement.

If you remember that was how it was under the Pharisees. But until someone experiences it for him self often he cannot understand it. Muhammad taught to do to others what you would like them to do for you. If the role would be inversed, in mind speak and action.

If I am not mistaken, Jesus said why do you do what you hate? why judge? they do the same and you will be judged by the measure you use. Zoroaster was a priest from the light of the sun. Jesus was the light of the world. Krishna and Buddha are very similar also. They where all masters in their time, or if you prefer teachers, that sought the truth about spirit (light), water (soul), flesh (physical body). so I think they would be in harmony and learn and help each other, and share the light of Truth.

they would reminisce on how shortly afer leaving their physical body behind after death, that their charge as a human beings became misinterpreted by the human inhabitants of earth. no doubt, all but Jesus, discuss that frequently when they gather in Paradise. not that Jesus did not possess a human body, but that His core was divine while the others were of spirit

Maybe they are the same Spirit, who incarnated in different cultures in different time to show the Way. They basically had the same teachings in some shape or form, the essence was the same, but it was different in every region because people had to resonate with the teachings, so different terms and stories were used so everyone could understand. Or maybe they are not the same Spirit, But its sure they come from the same place and had the same goals, to help us evolve :)

the flesh is flesh and the spirit is spirit. where ever the spirit incarnates in this world he as to become compatible with this world in the area that he lives,be it language,understanding,logic and methodology,culture, way of living etc. so each one of them passed gave the learning according to there understanding but also to the understanding of the people around them. and now those small difference people use to seek conflict and wage war, woe to those hypocrites that became darkness.

(09 Nov '12, 05:49) white tiger

if they would have follow what is good and the truth in their teaching,rather then seek conflict,they would have ben like a seed that has fall on good soil. but since they use their heart of stone. they are like a seed that has fall on the rock.

(09 Nov '12, 05:59) white tiger

I agree, we have to learn to look beyond the small difference, and see things for what they rely are, and not argue about minor differences, but its a lot easier to attack it rather then accept it.

(09 Nov '12, 06:49) Odym

... and thank you for the lovely Link, People should rely learn how to Grow Up :))

(09 Nov '12, 06:52) Odym

Very interesting thought, Odym. For all we know, they could all be the same divine teacher, sent (or perhaps coming) over and over, to each corner of the world in order to enlighten the people there. What a mystical thought!

If they all got to gether, they would be looking at earth laughing like crazy saying - look at all these foolish people that are ruining earth with all their false religious beliefs that they have created and falsely using it in our names.

what you say is true but incomplete, they have learn from there understanding at that moment also some have twisted the message for there own benefit,but yet some of the message remains for people and some people will achive and overcome,also some will do good example: mother theresa that spent her life helping people. you see some see only the outside of the cup but at lest they have some guide line to send them in the right direction,and eventually they will see the inside of the cup.

(01 Nov '12, 09:26) white tiger

they would be appaled to think that every war in the world has been started in their names, the greedy control freeks that are using their names to control people for their own egos, the terrorists are using their names for the pleasures of murder, the greeds of religion in their names, thats what they would be talking about.

(02 Nov '12, 19:09) Wazza

yes but in the end,how much will they have to bear? some seek power and are full of darkness. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. it is there free will and they are responsible of it. also they might try to show that they are light ,but those that have eyes to see and hears to ear, see right through them.

(09 Nov '12, 05:37) white tiger

and you all ready know the verdict.This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.eventually they will see that the darkness does not serve open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

(09 Nov '12, 05:41) white tiger

You make a good point! I can totally see Jesus calling out all those televangelists using His name and image to spread some political ideology.
