Modes of Material Nature: Faith in Three Modes

                                                                  Q. I was watching Good Morning America and they did a story on a man that claims to be Jesus. The question is that when such individuals claim to be God what kind of bad karma will he get for saying he is God, what kind of punishment will this man have to endure for committing this act? I don't know why but this has been bothering me because I can't understand why people follow and believe in such people. When they should know that there is only one God, Krishna, why is it that people will believe anything that they are told?

                                                                  Q. In Bhagavad Gita, Krishna claims Himself to be the only supreme Lord. But in Siva Gita (which is in Padmapurana) Siva claims that He is the only supreme Lord. Various puranas praise various Lords to be the supreme absolute truth. This is very much confusing and this suggests the possibility of scriptures being man made. It is obvious that Bhagavad Gita or Srimad Bhagavatam are not special since Siva Gita and other puranas can sufficiently counter the claims made by the above said scriptures. So how to know who the Almighty is?
