I was born Hindu.I was young and mischevious and often disobeyed my parents. When I grew a little older and regretted my behaviour I prayed that ram, krishna Shiva,etc would forgive me for my naughtiness BUT no matter how much I prayed, fasted n gave I always felt the weight of my sin.I forgot after a while BUT at age 15 a classmate came to me n said'Soni do u believe ur a sinner' I remembered my childhood sins and said' Yes' she then said to me'Do U know that Jesus Christ is the only God who gave HIS life to forgive ur sin? No other god has claimed and can make that claim.There is no assurance of salvation in Hinduism But Jesus offers salvation thru His sacrificial death if one puts their faith in HIM.

Sthanu: "Why would a loving merciful, all-knowing God create out of nothing, people whom he can fry later in eternal hell."
There is no eternal torture of the wicked. It is the "effect" of the lake of fire that is eternal and renders the wicked "ashes under our feet". The cruel god that enjoys torturing his children is a pagan doctrine of devils.

//Why should I accept Christianity over my religion?//
My question to you is, what do you have to do for your salvation?
---michael_e on 10/17/10|
Well, for your info, cuny, There has been a couple of times when God would say to me, "Try and keep an open mind"....Virtue, what do you mean? [moral excellence], what does that have to do with anything, my friend, on this topic?
---catherine on 10/15/10|
\\Some of these coments are open minded but many are not, so if you want to be a good Christan think about this\\
Since when is open-mindedness a Christian virtue?
Christianity is ultimately about REVEALED TRUTH.
---Cluny on 10/15/10|
I have no main religon but i think that when you post somthing online you should try to be open minded. Some of these coments are open minded but many are not, so if you want to be a good Christan think about this: For today or whenever you read this try to think about what you arre doing, saying beleaving. Is it realy logical? or is it just an esacape, In the bibel Jesus says to love, try that do not force your religon upon others. So to conclude step out and think is this logical?

Because there is only one God, one Savior, eternal. No other God can save lost souls from the torments of hell. It is the Blood of Jesus which saves lost souls, because, it is pure, unblemished, spotless, and it cleanse all unrighteousness. When you get saved it is the Blood which makes you right with the living God. God considers you His enemy, as long as you remain lost....Here is a warning for all lost people. I pity you, because, knowing what I know, today, I would not want to be an enemy of God. No way, No how. Amen+++
---catherine on 9/14/10|
Because there is only one way to the Living God of creation and it is through faith in Jesus Christ. All of the Gods that Hindus worship cannot compare to the great and only God of Creation who can condemn the soul to Hell. There are two places to be in eternity and one is Heaven and the other Hell. I believe that God is drawing you to the truth. I pray that u accept Gods free gift of eternal life with Him.:)
---jody on 9/13/10|
In the Holy Bible, Jesus says He is the Way, Truth, and Life, and NO one comes to the Father or Heaven, but by Him John 14:6. The ONLY way to Heaven is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. ALL other religions (including Hinduism) lead to Hell. If you want a relationship with Jesus Christ, read Romans 10:9-10 to tell you how.
---Leslie on 9/13/10|
According to christianity, God created all of us out of nothing. He puts us all in different places, different environments, differing amounts of faith, in God as well as in Christianity itself. Remember that God is also all powerful, all-knowing and fully merciful. In this case, please think about the following questions:
1. Why does God create people differently. Why do some people have more faith and some less.
2. Does not God know beforehand who will worship him and who wont. Being all-knowing he should surely know this.
3. If he knew that some people wouldnt worship him, Why would a loving merciful, all-knowing God create out of nothing, people whom he can fry later in eternal hell.
---Sthanu on 9/13/10|
Because Hinduism is like every other religion in the world, it is idolatry. But Christianity is based upon the real person Christ Jesus who came to earth to save people and transform their life into the godly life.

While there are hypocrites in both Christian and Hindu groups.
I do not know of any Christians who run through the streets raping and killing hindus.
But hindu extremists do it all the time. And very ofen get away with it. After all in the Hindu relgion women are less then men. And although they believe all life is sacred they apperently make an exception for christians.
Christians is based on a real events many of which can be proven. Hinduism is based on inner thoughts. By the way in Hinduism do you know what caste you would be?
---Samuel on 9/6/10|
If all you care about is what pleases you most, then it would not matter if anyone agrees with you. Hindu seems to teach a path to happiness and/or peace. Jesus Christ taught that he is "THE Way, THE Truth, and THE life" John 14:6
Jesus never tried to help people live happy lives. Christians are motivated to spread their beliefs because they believe it is TRUTH, not just pleasant.
Jesus is a historical person, so you have the choice to either think he is insane or he is who he said he is. Jesus is anything but a good moral teacher.
---Paul on 9/2/10|
Except for the fact that God says there is only one way to the Father, not many ways. If there were many ways, sending His Son to die to reconcile man to God and rise again the third day to save was nothing more than His coin in the pot.

The best place to start is with the bible, and not with christianity.
The bible shows itself to be true by acurate prophecies, Some include the nations which would rise and fall, the place of birth, manner of death, and life of the messiah.
One of the things about the bible is it's originality. The bible is the very first source to reveal that there are more than 2002 stars, to reveal that the earth is round and not flat, that air has mass, and that there are ocean currents.
ALso the archeology accociated with biblical characters and events is amazing. the flood, the tower of babel, sodom and gommora.
If you can find the science and prophecies of the bible to be 100% true, then you have a firm foundation to examine christianity.
---francis on 7/17/10|
Most religions preach that if you dont follow them, heaven will not receive you. But this belief is faulty as it would finally leave only one religion as the winner in the end, people following other religions losing which doent make sense. Which is why I believe God is just name for a Supreme Power. Religion is nothing but a means to achieve the ultimate goal of merging the soul with this divine power. We may follow different beliefs- not superior or inferior, just different- and we all strive for the same thing. Its like reaching the summit of a mountain- there are various paths that can lead to it. You may choose to take the path you believe will take you to summit - but do not condemn the other paths for you have not travelled through them.

Adetunji, you have said that well. very clear, and very correct. We Christians are not members of a religion but followers, by faith, of our Creator, Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ.
The idea raised here that Christians offer money in India for people to convert is nothing new. It has been investigated and found to be a lie invented by radical Hindu's. The same radicals who have attacked and killed many Christians, and burned down countless churches.
Though Christians believe Jesus is the only God, those who follow Him do not kill and harass those who believe otherwise. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims etc, are not arrested, tortured and murdered for their faith in the West. Neither are their place of worship destroyed.
---Warwick on 5/28/10|
Christ is the revelation of GOD to mankind. Christ's way of life, our living based on HIS instructions is not a religion. Christianity/ Judaism were not started by man to reach God. God called Abram, God came in the form of a man called Jesus. Man's way to reach God is called Religion not God's revealed way to man. I do not know much about Hinduism but since it's way is not exactly the same with Christ's, i conclude that it is not the recomendation of the same God that Christians worship and will not lead it's worshippers to the good place that Christ has promised those who follow HIM.
---Adetunji on 5/28/10|
Firstly, the large majority of us oppose the caste system, it is a social evil that has been wrongly created. But it has no connection with Hinduism, it began with the Aryans' social systems thousands of years ago. Furthermore, we believe in one GOD, essence, who is Brahman, immaterial and present in all of us. Thus, our spirits/souls are Divine. Gods such as Vishnu and Brahma are manifestations of this brahma, there to guide us. Every person is equal to God's eyes. Christians come to India promising money to impoverished families in return for converting, these families, with no other choice, convert. This isn't called spreading the word, but bribery. Yet, I fail to understand how and why you condemn Hindus so much and praise your own religion.
---ProudToBeHindu on 5/27/10|
i was born in a Hindu family and been a hindu myself for almost 20 years, but now i live for CHRIST alone.
You know why it is too hard for hindus to accept or even understand CHRIST because HE IS TOO GOOD to BELIEVE. when i first had a little taste of JESUS... man! i was shocked ..... and was not able to believe that GOD CAN be sooooo........ GOOD.
hinduism says that if u do wrong u will be punished.
on the contrary Jesus says " My people do not worry i was punished for ur sin. i love you and want you to live your life to ur fullest."

Through our GOD, when we are doing correctly we defeat ALL enemies of our GOD.
We also feed/clothe/educate and share blessings with these humbled ones. Also fulfillment of what our creator/saviour/GOD stated we would do. There is no proof for yours. There are no blessings with yours. There is nothing to gain with yours.

Some historians do accept Hinduism as being very old. But as a Christian I cannot accept it as being true.
Christianity is the result of JESUS coming to Judaism. So Christianity and Judaism is a combined relgion. Which is a Christian's eyes makes it as old as Judaism. Also we believe that Adam and eve followed GOD and are the first of true belivers which means we belive Christianity is as old as human being have lived on this earth.
Now I am a Seventh day Adventist Christian so some of my answers will differ from other Christians.
I accept the Bible as being true above the Hindu scripture. For instance we believe the Caste system is wrong. That all men are equal in the sight of GOD.

Karma23: The Lord Jesus Christ, the foundation of our faith is God who visited mankind as a man, to be able to correct the way man lives that is contrary to HIS purpose for creation. At the end of the earth whoever is found to have ended his/her life in opposition to God/Christ's will, will be condemned to God's eternal prison. HE has empowered Christians to inform(not forcefully) everybody about this. The love Christians inherited from Jesus compels them to pass this message to all.

Karma, your post should be a revelation to christians,but. Most Christians do not study their Bible enough to know what it really says. Most Christians listen/follow unmarkded "Shepherds" who haven't really read it either but, crave positions of authority.
Now this sounds blunt, but is familiar to any Christian if scripturally honest.
Christ give mission and most Christians misunderstand/change it. Matthew 15:24
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

You ask why Christians want others to become Christians.
It's because we beleive that it is through Jesus that we will have everlasting Life with God.
We beleive that without accepting Jesus as our Saviour, we can'r have that Life with God.
So, because we want everyone yo have the eternal joy of that Life, that we have to tell others about it. We do it for their sake, not foe our own. We are not seeking to extend our power or influence, we just want others to have that Life.

---exzucuh on 1/21/10|
Because out of all of your many Gods, not one can claim to have risen from the dead and is now ALIVE for us all. If that is true, then one would think very seriously about the importance of Jesus Christ in claiming believers in Him for Eternity in Heaven. Also it all of that is true, then there is a Hell just as He says. Not one of your Gods has power to Save. You mistakenly do not have a concept or belief in Hell. Bible says that the "fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom". Also, "the love of God leads you to repentance". It is God who creates a work in you and actually makes the changes. Hope that helps:) Keep interested:)

---Karma23 your statement,"To me Hinduism has always made sense. KARMA- one word that described our world inside and out. Do good, good things will happen to you. Do bad, bad things will happen to you. A very simple philosophy. And for our soul going to heaven or hell, immediately after death? It it taught in Hinduism that the soul will find a suitable body to live in on the amount of karma you created in your previous life!" Is very reasonable on the surface and it does appeal to the fleshly(human nature) man.
Christianity however does not make sense to our natural(fleshly) man and in fact must be taken on faith and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ. Big difference in the two beliefs.

Christianity creates justice for sin as opposed to trying to balance out our sin with goodness. The key problem with balancing sin with good, is that goodness is subjective. By God's standards, all our attempts at goodness fall short.
God knew this so he sent his Son to take our punishment, thus serving justice. It is the only way for a truley good God to still be perfectly just and perfectly good.

I know of no person who has ever ask Jesus Christ to come into their life to later say that they regretted having done so.

I grew up as a Hindu and I find it to be very oppressive and confusing. With the myriads of Gods to choose from and different philosophies it has been very frustrating. I also detested the caste system and the way they try to box everyone into different categories and stages. They say that Christians are judgemental and Hindus are accepting that is nothing but a lie.If you don't fit into their box you are judged harshly. They may pay lip service and say they are accepting but my expereince is they are not. Hinduism is fine if you are of an upper caste or you have money. Christianity accepts you as you are, and the beautiful message of love and grace surpass any impersonal philosophy of Hinduism.

Because Christianity is the only true religion in that God comes to the individual. A true Christian is not one who gets up in the morning and decides, "Ah, today I am a Christian".

1st thing that came to my mind as I read your question is to inform you to start reading the Holy-Bible(common versions). As you read you will need other Christians to explain somethings to you for better/faster understanding. By regular reading of the Bible you'll get to know God who made the heaven & the earth and all that is in them. You will also get to know that God does NOT have MULTIPLE & DIFFERENT ways to please Him. HE has shown us the only way to please Him is through Christianity by Christ Jesus. The good KNOWLEDGE of GOD & CHRIST JESUS through the Holy-Bible will convince you & give you the complete answer to your question. Try.

God is a Spirit (a Holy Spirit) and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. You see this, right?
What things does a man know? Is it not the spirit within him?
So, the things of God no man knows! But the Spirit of God!
Now we have received, not the spirit of a man. But, a spirit we believe is from God.
So we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
The things we are saying are not in the words, which mans wisdom teaches!
But which a Holy Ghost teaches comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Not that you might believe us!
But believe there is only one God!

Looking at this, now I ask! Who is the one being enlightened the animal or the spirit of the animal? I would think its the spirit! For it is the spiritual life you seek. Is this not right?
So now, is the spirit to be blamed for what the animal does? Or is the spirit to learn from the animal? Here to, I would think, the spirit is to be enlightened from the animal!
Is not man the highest animal?

I dont mean to start out as a cynic, but this reminds me of a bunch of car salesmen trying to pitch Jesus.
The reason for Christianity is this:
- God who created the world (Genesis 1:1)
- God created laws (Ten Commandments Exodus 26)
- We broke the law (Romans 3:23)
- God is just so he must punish those who break the law
- God is loving, that he knew we could not pay the cost of our sins (death, Romans 6:23)
- God sent his Son to pay the price for us (John 3:16)
We're born with a conscience, and we know that we are not perfect. We know that we have done wrong. The Bible answers the questions about how we got here, why we are here, why and how the world was corrupted, and how it will be set right again.
---Paul on 9/28/09|
Hi Raj, Christianity centers around the GOD of all Creation. GOD is a UNIT of Three Holy Persons. Father YAHUVEH, Holy Spirit SHKHINYAH and the Son YAHUSHUA (JESUS). YAHUSHUA humbly came to Earth as a Flesh-and-Blood Man. He shed His Blood and died for sinful mankind who were separated from their Loving Creator. At Death, man goes to live either in Heaven with GOD, or in Hell (and the Lake of Fire) where the Devil will forever dwell. The choice must be made before Death. Believing in this GOD of Three Persons is alot more simplified than following the gazillions of gods of the Hindu religion. If a man dies in Salvation, he'll retain his human beauty. But, in Hell, he is stripped of everything beautiful and good and is tormented forever.

In Yahushua we are taught how to love, how to live, how to forgive and how to be forgiven for all of our mistakes and bad decisions. When Yahushua died, He did so as a sacrifice so that we are forgiven. Due to our imperfections, there's no other way for us to abide with the perfect Creator without being cleared of our sins. This is why Yahushua said that He's the Way, Truth & Life, & that no one could come to the Father but through Him. Religious labeling, practices and traditions mean nothing without accepting this phenomenal gift of life and forgiveness in gratitude.

There's Only One True & Living God.
All of the Man-made god's,Mohammed,
Buddha,Hindu,Islam,Muslam etc god's are dead.
If they were alive they would be subject Under the Only One True & Living God,Jesus Christ, & Jesus Christ offers just One Salvation Plan that's according to Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt. 28 v's 19-20.

The "wisdom" of men is foolishness compared to what Jesus knows! Try praying and reading scripture. Praying is simply--talking to God--Jesus they are one--with the Holy Spirit.
Read the Bible in a language you are familiar with and can understand. Find a body of believers. I will pray for you!!
Reasons Christianity is the awesome choice--God created the Earth
God planned to send his Son to die for three days and then rise again. This sacrifice atones for man's sins.
If we ask Jesus to forgive us, our sins are forgiven and we can live with him in heaven forever-he also shines light and love on our lives in the earth.
God is love. God takes away fear.
The angels in heaven rejoice over each sinner saved!!!!

I want you to ask the lord my God for something.
This is important, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth
Now I want you to ask your Gods for something.
I believe the lord my God is calling you.
Now this is more important, do not tell anyone. What happen!
No one will believe you, this is between you and him, only! Believe me!
Unless he himself tells you too! This will be your proof!
Raj, my God, dose not play games, men do.
May God bless you.

I want you to try something for me. Pray for your forgiveness of sins and ask Jesus to come into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior. I am not saying that we should be ruled by feelings, but I want you to do this and see how it feels. If it feels right, continue following Christ without your other gods. If it feels wrong, you may go back to your religion and repent. If this scares you to do this, just talk to Jesus and see how it feels.

The Lord God Almighty is the one who is going to judge you, not those Hindu (false) gods. God has the power to put you into hell for eternity, and He has the power to forgive you for your sins and keep you out of hell. Lord God Almighty will also judge your Hindu gods, for they are demons. All of creation is subject to the one and only God. There is only one God. There is only one Name under Heaven whereby we must be saved - the Name of Jesus Christ.

Raj.....only in christianity did someone die that we may live.
Did any of the Hindu gods die for you so you could have everlasting life?
Raj....there is only one God and this God loves you so much that he sent his only son to die for you and me. That whosoever believes(put faith in) Him will have eternal life.
Raj...you and i are a "whosoever".

Because Jesus is the ONLY way into Heaven. "No one goes to the Father but by me"
Because Jesus, not your hindu god, shed his blood for your sins, was crucified on a cross, and rose from the dead. Did your hindu god do that for you? He is a false god, Jesus is the real deal. The Lord God of Israel is the only true God in this universe.
Taste and see that the Lord God is good. Talk to Him. Ask Him questions. Tell Him you want to beleive in Him, but are afraid to or whatever the reason is.
Let everyone that has breath Praise the Lord God of Israel.

My mothers family were predominantly Hindu's We are now all Christians!

Verry simple, because jesus Christ is the only way too eternal heaven, and no other means was givven.
CHRIST teaches this in Joh 3.16
the main difference between following Christ and any other religion is that in Jesus it is accomplished, whilst in other religions one needs to figure it out for himself how to turn to eternal bliss.
no religious system is bad in itself, for all try to regularise society and even all try tioprotect the poor and desperate. nevertheless all religions give that same idea you cannot achieve it yourselgf. only Christ says come, i did it for you.

TIM: "Your eternal destiny is hanging on your answer to this question."
Completely agree. Raj, the Christian faith deserves your honest consideration and careful examination. The Apostle Paul challenged his readers to test all things and hold on to what is good (1 Thes 5:21). I suggest you do the same. Christianity claims to be based on historical events, particularly the death and resurrection of Christ. If these claims are accurate, the implications are immense. It means, to state briefly, that Christianity isn't 'just another religion'.

Hinduism is a very interesting belief system, with many positive values. Unfortunately, it lacks a key thing that Christians have, a personal relationship with God through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is not about choosing a religion, but developing a relationship with God through Christ. The best way to learn about Him is to read the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in the New Testament of the Bible.

Intellectual curiosity is hardly grounds for changing one's religion.
However you have no reason to fear your curiosity of Christianity for it is certain that you are no one else will ever accept Christianity without the wooing and calling of the Holy Spirit. One of the principal differences between all religions is the functioning of the Holy Spirit in Christianity. And while there are other spirits in the world there is only one Holy Spirit. So as a place to begin your study may I suggest you look at the person and reality of the Holy Spirit.

Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the only true pathway to salvation, the only road to eternal life, the Christ, the savior of the world. Every person will stand accountable and must answer the one most important question that Jesus asked, "Who do you say that I am"? Your eternal destiny is hanging on your answer to this question.
