Christianity vs Hinduism Comparison

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” – Exodus 20:3

“Hinduism, the 3rd largest religion in the world, involves the worship of many gods and goddesses which are demons masquerading as such. The philosophy of the New Age movement is largely based on Hindu spirituality. The Hindu gods cannot save one’s soul from hellfire. The only Person who can save one’s soul is the Lord and God Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). Jesus said He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no man can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).”

Not many people don’t realize it, but Hinduism has greatly influenced the world even outside of India. Hindu beliefs permeate popular books, television programs, and movies. For examples, there is yoga, which millions of Americans practice. Yoga originated from Hinduism. We all have heard someone say the word karma as if it is something real. That concept also originated from Hinduism. And what about Meditation? Though meditation is not exclusive to Hinduism, the cross-legged lotus position with outstretched arms is distinct to Hinduism.

So what is Hinduism? The big idea in the religion is to gain freedom from the world as we see it. Practitioners think they need to disconnect from the material existence around them to understand how to connect with the supposed oneness of the world.

But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.” – 1 Corinthians 10:20

In Hinduism, God (Brahman) is believed to be unknowable, the one impersonal, ultimate, spiritual reality. Sectarian Hinduism personifies Brahman as Brahma (creator, with four heads symbolizing creative energy), Vishnu (preserver, the god of stability and control), and Shiva (destroyer, the god of endings). Most Hindus worship two of Vishnu’s ten mythical incarnations: Krishna and Rama. On special occasions, Hindus may also worship other gods, such as family and individual deities. In Hinduism, believe in astrology, and curses also prevail.

Hinduism accepts several forms of pantheism and rejects the Christian concept of creation, in which God is separate from his creation. In Hinduism, Brahman alone exists; everything (the universe, earth, man, rocks, animals, fire, etc.) is ultimately an illusion (maya). Brahman caused the illusion of creation. There is no beginning nor ending to creation, only infinite repetitions or cycles of creation and destruction. Also, history has no value because everything is based on an illusion.

Because of this worldview, Hindus have no motivation to help the poor, fight against hunger, or injustices because everything is an illusion anyway. Every person has as much value as a cow or a rock. In India’s caste system, it is interpreted as being in accordance with karma. Through good deeds in this life, a person supposedly has the opportunity for reincarnation in a higher caste. But one will not know if they are successful to be born into a new caste. The negative consequence of believing that you can only be born into a caste is that it hinders Hindus of any motivation to attempt moving from one caste system to another in this life or to help someone in a poorer situation. The result is a religion that generally lacks the desire to help the poor obtain education and a better way of life. Jesus however taught to help the poor (Matt. 25:31-40).

In Hinduism, there is no concept that because of man’s rebellion against the one true living God, man is separated from Him. Hindus have no clear idea or plan for salvation.

In Christianity, Jesus Christ is the Savior who can rescue from the destructive power of sin in our lives. He is the only One who can reconcile a person to God because He died (though He resurrected) on the cross as a propitiation for sins (Romans 3:24).

To Hindus, Moksha (freedom from infinite being and selfhood and final self-realization of the truth) is the goal of existence. Yoga and meditation are thought to be ways to moksha. In Hinduism, your personality is the problem, an illusion which you must be willing to accept.

In contrast to Christianity, to know the one true God and Jesus Christ is eternal life, and Christians look forward to dwelling with Him. (John 17:3; Revelation 22:1-4). The Bible teaches that you’re important to God and unique. God desires to have a personal relationship with you, not have you become a part of him.

In Hinduism, one of the ways of salvation is the way of devotion, known as bhakti-yoga. This is the most popular way among regular people of India. This devotion involves a person surrendering to one of the many gods and goddesses of Hinduism. This lifetime commitment is expressed through acts of worship, temple rituals, and pilgrimages.

In reality, the gods Hindus worship are nothing but demons masquerading as gods. One can open himself or herself to demonization by worshipping demon false gods.

Summary of Comparison Between Hinduism with Christianity

God

From a Hindu perspective, there are over 330 million gods.

From a Biblical perspective, there is but one God manifested in three distinct Persons who co-exist simultaneously: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Holy Book

In Hinduism, the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, and the Bhagavad Gita are considered holy books. The Bhagavad Gita is considered the most popular and sacred book.

To Christians, the Holy Bible is authoritative.

Sin

In Hinduism, there is no concept of personal sin against God.

In Christianity, all people have sinned against God (except Jesus), and that is why people need a Savior.

Jesus Christ

In Hinduism, Jesus is not the Messiah, God’s unique Son. He did not die for the sins of many on the cross. He also did not rise from the dead. He was just a man who realized his divine nature.

In Christianity, Jesus is God’s perfect Son, holy, resurrected, divine (2nd Person of the Trinity, yet fully human.

Salvation

Moksha (freedom from infinite being and selfhood and final self-realization of the truth) is the goal of existence, not salvation.

In Christianity, salvation is only obtained by faith in Jesus Christ and that salvation is given by grace, not by works.

Afterlife or Afterdeath

Repeated reincarnation until a person is reabsorbed into Brahman.

At death, all people will enter heaven or hell based on whether they have salvation in Jesus Christ. The Bible does not support the idea of reincarnation. It is appointed a man to die once and after is the judgment, reads the Bible (Hebrews 9:27; Luke 1:19-31).

Hinduism does not hold a single similarity with biblical Christianity when it comes to foundational areas.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”

        Plus it’s one of the most violent and murderous religions on earth second only to Islam. Trinitarians have driven me right out of it with their judgmentalism of condemning others who reject the diabolical so called Christian Trinity. I’d rather listen to Sadhguru any day. Christianity is the most divided religion of earth.

          Why you begging him to research about on Hindu religion if I he had that to love in his heart for everything. When Jesus told him to love everything then he wouldn’t have write like this. No need to tell anyone to research on religion. He just blindly loving his religion not Jesus. That’s all.

        I won’t bow down to anyone. Do you bow down to me to a stranger with me or without me. I’m a god if Jesus comes before I’ll hug him and love him because he loves everything right then he loves me you hug your loved one. no need of your kind of people to misguide people in blindly love. Show true love to your god. Not blind love.

        No one need to bow anyone. Everyone is same in God’s eye I mean in my eyes.

    Jesus loves you and wants to save your soul from eternal death. Repent and recognize him as your saviour, and you shall have eternal life. Keep rejecting him, and you’ll earn a place in hell.

    Overcome your racist pride and hatred. In your heart you know that all this hindu bullshit is a giant lie, a trick by Satan to lead you to hell with him, away from God who loves you.

    I hope you will be able to accept the truth of the word of God, the Bible before you die. If you don’t, you will regret it forever upon your death.

            I think you don’t understand the basic of Hindu religion. We worship everything literally everything. Do you do that like worshiping everything. As your Jesus love everything we are doing that since your Jesus born. So may be he learnt that from Hindus because he’s god right he know that we Hindus do that. Yeah we have rat temple so what’s wrong in that it’s in our tradition as I said earlier we worship everything. Yeah some god have animal face and bodies so what for you it may be illusion or demon but our ancestors did that to teach us to give respect and love to even animal also. That’s the concept here. I don’t know what you understand here you simply posted something nonsense to create problems and you telling Jesus loves you. Stop this nonsense. If you take care of your people then do that stop misguiding people. creating hatred in people’s heart so that you guys can jump on to save them later on to became saviour to them.
