If any man among you seem to be religious, and
bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart,
this man’s religion [is] vain.


(James)

Dear Nagaraj,

See this unfamiliar quote:

Some of the people of Jerusalem said, 'Isn't the man the authorities are trying to kill? Look! He is talking in public. And they
say nothing against him!  Can it be that they really know that he is the Messiah? But when the Messiah comes, no one will
know where he is from. And we all know where this man comes from.'

As Jesus taught in the Temple,  he said in a loud voice, 'Do you really know me and  know where I am from? I have not come
on my own authority. He who sent me, however, is truthful. You do not know him. But I know him because I come from him
and he sent me,

John 8 25-29.

/Arunachala Siva.

Who is "him" in the above quote?

how can we conclude sex of the unknown?

So god or father as jesus quotes is a human being and sitting in some remote planet?

Cannot understand how can we derive god is human in this 21st century ?  :)

Dear prasanth,

'he' here refers to the Father. Jesus Christ is  called son of God. Father is God. It is like Skanda and Siva. Whether he is up in
the heaven or here in our Heart  that only ardent Sadhkas know.

Arunachala Siva.

Shiva is male, Parvati is female
Vishnu is male, Lakshmi is female
Ardhanareeshwara is both male and female
Narasimha is half man half animal
matsya avatara fish
Kurma avatara turtle
varaja avatara is boar
Ganesha has elephant head
hanuman is monkey
and so on...

what is important is to assimilate the essence. The gender is not in Him or Her, it is ones own mind.

Dear Nagaraj,

I do not know whether this is a Christian quote.

Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and every
sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles. first, Simon (called Peter), and his brother Andrew, James and his brother
John, the sons of Zebedee; Philip and Bartholomew; James son of Alphaeus and Thaddaeus; Simon the Patriot and Judas Iscariot,
who betrayed Jesus.

You are to go the lost sheep of Israel was His command.

Matthew 10.1-4.

Arunachala Siva.

Sir, yes it is found under Matthew, and He also advised those twelve disciples along with other good things as follows:

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast
out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

Dear Nagaraj,

You said about Rama, Sita and Hanuman....Then you said that gender is not them but in one's own mind. My question
was: Is it (reference to Rama etc.,) a Christian quote.

Sir, i expressed my views on Sri Prashant's doubts.

Who is "him" in the above quote?

how can we conclude sex of the unknown?

I am not sure i still got what your question is.

Dear Nagaraj,

Perhaps there is a mix up of two posts or replies to two different members.
