Oldest and most Followed Religion in the World

So, you are sitting and thinking in your computer chair bought from on what is the oldest religion in the world. Well first of all, most religions are claiming that they’ve existed since the beginning of time. On the other hand, most researchers are pointing out that Hinduismas is the oldest type of religion being practiced which was founded in around 2,300 B.C.

What’s Hinduism?

Hinduism actually stems back to India’s Vedic era which is now the third biggest religion in the world. Believe it or not, it has over 1.5 billion people following this religion. In fact, it’s widely practiced in countries like Mauritius, India and Nepal.

No one actually knows who has founded this religion but, the practice is focused on combining various Indian practices which include:

  • Surya – otherwise known as Aditya or the worshipping of several manmade gods
  • Hindu – god of the sun and was deemed as the creator of universe as well as source of life

But they follow and worship 4 main gods only and these are Brahma the Creator, Shiva the Destroyer, Ganapati, the Remover of Obstacles, Vishnu, the Preserver and Avatars of Vishnu. Simply speaking, Hindus are worshipping countless idols and manmade gods.

Bible’s Creation and Stories

The Bible reveals too that not just Jehovah or Yahweh is the one true God but also, the creator of the world and everything in it.

As per Genesis 1:1-2, God has created the world and heavens, and the world was unformed. The connection between unformed world as well as the six days to which God has created it is so important to the whole history of the Bible. Additionally, it’s crucial to why God has created humanity.

In the Bible, it also discusses what images we are formed to. And this tells that God has made us in his own image so by that, the world will be filled with reflectors or mirrors of God and the world will be filled with image bearers. This way, nobody is going to miss the point of creation. Compared to other religions, God wasn’t empty or lonely; instead he’s content and self-satisfied.
