RE: What is this nonsense?
I don't care what you said. It's what scripture says.

As far as tradition is concerned; the bible speaks of he tradition set forth by the knowledge of GOD through Christ. It speaks against any doctrine made up by man that is against the teachings of Christ.

The teachings of Christ are of unity, peace, and giving. Same as the Gita.

Again, the perception of any who are off in their own greedy wants is not going to align with the teachings of the narrow path.

Seeing as how the Gita and bible teach the same code of conduct and the spirit, there shouldn't be too much confusion.

It is known that the gate is wide for the sinner. It is also known that idly speaking the name Christ or Jesus isn't equivalent to actual faithful belief and direction under GOD. So if it is known that the way is narrow and few will go in through it, then it is also safe to say that any hypocrite or their opinion is pretty useless at this point.

Peace

Why don't you post some more scripture so I can effortlessly show you your errenous, biased interpretation. Not that it matters to you the unbeliever, but it's still fun.

There you go again, making shit up. The bible is pretty clear that salvation is ONLY attained through belief in Jesus, it says nothing about the non-Christian Gita.

Completely incoherent, but that's what your religious kludge is. You make some vague reference to the bible, but you don't even know what you're referencing:

Matthew 7:13-14

13"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
14"For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.


That means that you aren't going through that gate Gita-boy. Laughat

What does The Lord of the Rings say? How about Great Expectations? "Scripture" is just a fancy word for stories.

Quote:The teachings of Christ are of unity, peace, and giving.

"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."

The only "peace" being offered is that of a agreeing to become a mindless, grovelling, slave to a maniacal dictator.

Quote:Seeing as how the Gita and bible teach the same code of conduct and the spirit, there shouldn't be too much confusion.

In your narrow, cherry-picked, self-fulfilling interpretation.

Quote:It is known claimed without supporting evidence that the gate is wide for the sinner. It is also known claimed without supporting evidence that idly speaking the name Christ or Jesus isn't equivalent to actual faithful belief and direction under GOD. So if it is known claimed without supporting evidence that the way is narrow and few will go in through it, then it is also safe to say that any hypocrite or their opinion is pretty useless at this point.

fixt that for you

Hindu creation myths


Rigveda

The Purusha Sukta of the earliest Hindu text Rigveda mentions Purusha, the primeval cosmic being

Brahmanas:
The fish avatara of Vishnu saves Manu, the progenitor of the existing human race, during the great deluge.

The Shatapatha Brahmana mentions a story of creation, in which the Prajapati performs tapas to reproduce himself. He releases the waters and enters them in the form of an egg that evolves into the cosmos.

Upanishads:
The Aitareya Upanishad mentions that only the "Atman" (the Self) existed in the beginning. The Self-created the heaven (Ambhas), the sky (Marikis), the earth (Mara) and the underworld (Ap). He then formed the Purusha from the water. He also created the speech, the fire, the prana (breath of life), the air and the various senses, the directions, the trees, the mind, the moon and other things.


So you're wrong, but don't let that stop you from engaging in your terminal case of confirmation bias. Drinking Beverage
Read the Bhagavad Gita then decide if I'm wrong.

Most people can't understand it( like the bible) so they just Google stuff and take others word for their own knowledge. To bad it's wrong.

But this person in the discussion is saying it goes back to the Vedas . Obviously it's hokem and my understanding of the Vedas is pretty slim. Hinduism is such a mish-mash of numerous gods and crap. It's like a huge stew of nonsense.

Anyone knowledgeable about the Hindu religion have any information on this silliness?

Read "Breaking India" by Rajiv Malhotra.

What you describe is typical Christian missionary stuff in India.

They also have a bunch of mythology regarding St. Thomas, when in actuality scholars are not even sure St. Thomas visited India.

All of this missionary activity in India is funded by American churches.

I think those in the west simply lack the same historical understanding of the global history of all religions, and merely have a false perception of one group because they are only taking into account one moment in time.

To fully understand ALL religions you have to take evolution into account and the evolutionary reason humans gap fill.

Hinduism is not taken as metaphor by everyone in all cases. Otherwise these Hindus would not have done this.

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/india-beef-ban-...ur-1527378

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_...e_in_India

http://sikhsiyasat.net/2010/06/12/histor...ng-punjab/

Now mind you, the "metaphor" excuse is not a patent held by Hindus, every religion does this to avoid scrutiny of their religion.

You ask one Christian if a story is true, one will say it is, and ask another the same question and someone else will call it metaphor.

This is a dodge that is universal in all religions. There is no unifying religion, not even within the same label. Even in the same label you have different sects interpreting the same words and laying stake to the heros and icons, and as a result they cant agree on what the "real" meaning is.

Vishnu is no more unifying to all Hindus than Jesus is Unifying to all Christians anymore than Allah is unifying to all Muslims anymore than the Dali Lama or Buddha is unifying to all Buddhists.

The evolutionary reason humans do this is a comic book excuse to set up social pecking orders. When humans get threatened by a challenge, even if mere questioning, they see that as a threat to their social order. So the loophole around justifying the bad behavior of others is "metaphor" or "they aren't a true" "if they'd just do it my way".

All religious people of all religions like to believe they have the patent on morality and point to all the kind motifs and acts they do. But what they don't understand is that it isn't the writing magically giving them morals, it isn't the club label giving them morals. Our species behaviors, good or bad, have always been in us, not our human invented gap filling answers.

When I attempt to read about the Hindu religion my brain almost explodes. I find it extremely complicated but maybe that's because I'm just not as familiar with it as I am with Christianity. The language and words are difficult to pronounce in my head, the many gods too complicated , the spiritualism is all over the place, and it's just endless silliness. I feel as though I need to study this religion more so I can have a basic understanding of it but it's just so convoluted. 'Course, most religions are but this one seems like it's in some sort of special wacky vortex.



Just go to your local Hindu temple.

Make sure its mainstream and not Hare Krishna, Swaminarayan or Sai Baba.
