God Is Not Alone
(Click to enlarge painting of Radha-Krishna in the Spiritual Sky)

Guest: In the Christian Bible it says that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and you can only get to God through him.

Prabhupāda: That's all right.

Guest: No. What is...? Do...?

Prabhupāda: Yes. We admit that. He is the perfect son, and if you take shelter of the lotus feet of the perfect son, you go to back to home, back to Godhead. That's a fact.

Guest: Is that through Christ or...

Prabhupāda: Yes. As he advises. Just like he says, "Thou shall not kill." But if you kill, at the same time take shelter of Christ, what is the meaning? First of all you try to follow him; then you can go through him. But you don't care for him—what is the meaning of go through him?

Guest: Believe in him.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Believe in strongly.

Guest: Believe that he is the son of God.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Believe or not believe, he is son. And if you are fortunate, you follow his path and you become perfect. You believe or not believe, God is there. Similarly, you believe or not believe, God's son is there, God's devotee is there, everyone is there. God is not alone. Just like if you say, "Now here the king is coming," "the king is coming" means he is coming with his ministers, his commander-in-chief, his secretaries and so many, hundreds of men, soldiers... Similarly, when we speak of God, God is not alone. He has got His sons, He has got His friends, He has got His father, He has got His mother, He has got His beloved—everything. That is God.
