If hinduism is a satan according to Christians, then why did Jesus disappear from the Bible between his 12 and 30 year. And went to India to study meditation and yoga??
Try to search for the truth.
And yes I know, the truth hurts !

Selfrealisation is not satan. It's how you live with yourself and others around you

18:57 For Hinduism, check out "Gods of the New Age" (1984 or 1988) … It's on BornAgain771's channel on YouTube, titled:  Brainwashing – gods of the New Age – New Age Satanic Religion Exposed as a Fraud … Hinduism is all about sewing to the flesh, self-centeredness, and guruism.  It's the total opposite of Christianity.

You guys really need to properly learn about Hinduism before making these irresponsible comments….you look at it from a very judgmental and arrogant standpoint… What makes the bible the only authority on God??? There are so many loopholes in the bible and so many things that Christians deliberately ignore in the bible because you simply cannot comprehend so you leave it to "faith"
Hinduism is a very scientific religion and by the way no one was ever murdered in the name of Hinduism the way your crusaders swept through Europe killing people who did not believe and accept Christ. Look at the history if your own religion before you start criticising another!

Open your minds and do some more research….

The level of ignorance here is truly astounding. I've never before seen an educational programme where virtually every fact presented is wrong.

I always find it hilarious how Christians (mainstream trinitarian ones) accuse other religions of idol worship, yet they themselves engage in the greatest idol worship there is, worshipping a man as God.

FULL OF MIS-INFORMATION-DIS-INFORMATION (LIES) –"IGNORANCE IS BLISS"

THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE (repeat) ONLY ONE "AUTHORITATIVE " SCRIPTURE OF HINDUISM CALLED VEDAM –IT HAS FOUR BRANCHES (ZAAKHAA=BRANCH) –RIG–SAAMAN—YAJUS AND ATHARVA.ARE ZAAKHAS –

VEDA VYAASA DICTUM=> " ANY LITERATURE NOT IN CONSONANCE WITH VEDAM IS NOT SANAATHANA (a.k.a.HINDU) LITERATURE

RIG VEDAM IS KNOWN TO BE THERE "AT-LEAST"- FROM 07.35 A.M. ON DECEMBER,19,7000 BCE ( AT LEAST 9015 YEARS OLD)

VEDAM IS "REVEALED" TO ARSHAS AND ARSHINIS.–HINDU RELIGION IS THE ONE AND ONLY ONE RELIGION WHICH TALKS THAT GOD "REVEALED" RELIGIOUS SCRIPTURE TO WOMEN ALSO –42 NAMES ARE EXTANT –REMAINING NAMES ARE EXTINCT.—HINDU RELIGION DOES NOT SAY " WOMEN SHOULD REMAIN SILENT IN PLACES OF WORSHIP.–THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK-BUT REMAIN IN SUBMISSION"—HINDU WOMEN SCHOLAR LIKE LOBHA MUDRA CAN TEACH RELIGION TO MEN STUDENTS

"WOMEN" VEDIC SHOLAR VAG AMBRUNI TALKS =>

"AHAM-RUDREBHIR-VASUBHIR-CHARAAMI"
"AHAM-AADHITHYAIR- UTHA- VESVA DEVAIH"
"AHAM – MITRAA-VARUNOBHAA-BHIBHARHAMI"

ALL MEN DAILY CHANT WHAT OUR "GREAT GRAND MOTHER" HAS TAUGHT US.( RIG VEDAM)

THERE SHOULD BE NO CONFUSION FOR A "SANE PERSON" –THERE IS ONLY ONE TEXT AND THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE "CORE" CONCEPT OF BRAHMANN –THE ENTIRE HINDU RELIGION "REVOLVES" AROUND THIS CONCEPT ONLY

ONE CAN NOT TEACH "QUANTUM MECHANICS" TO A PRE-K.G. CHILD -THAT CHILD BELEIVES THAT "BARNEY" IS REAL –ONE SHOULD ENCOURAGE THE CHILD–WHEN ONE BECOME A "BRAHMA GJNAANI" –THEN THERE IS NO NEED FOR A TEMPLE–IDOL–RITUALS– RELIGION.

THIS IS WHAT BHAGAVAN SRI.KRISHNA SAYS IN BHAGAVAT GITA => A GLASSFUL OF DRINKING WATER FOR A MAN STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A RUNNING RIVER IS AS USEFUL AS VEDAM FOR A BRAHMA GJNAANI

PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHERE AN IDOL IS NEEDED AND WHERE NOT

THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE AUTHORITATIVE HINDU SCRIPTURE –CALLED VEDAM –IT HAS FOUR BRANCHES(ZAAKHAAS) –RIG–SAAMAN–YAJUS–AND ATHARVA

WHEN I SALUTE AN ELDER –I SAY "YAJUS ZAAKHAADHYAAYI–RAJAGOPAALA SHARMANN"–I DO NOT SAY "YAJUS VEDHAADHYAAYI RAJAGOPAALA SHARMANN"

FOR ITS PART GOOGLE ALSO EXPRESSES ITS "IGNORANCE"–"IGNORANCE IS BLISS"

if you dont know about the ideology of hinduism then just keep your mouth shut… idiots.

This is not true. The Hare Krishna's are not an outbreak of Hinduism. The Hare Krishna's have a parampara, which is a disciplic succession going back to Lord Chaitanya. And each do have their disciplic succession. The Hare Krishna's DO NOT make blood sacrifices, only fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds etc. They make offerings of food, NO MEAT, to the dieties which you call "idols". Not like the abrahamic religions that sacrificed and took the life of animals and drank their blood and ate their flesh. A DISGUSTING PRACTISE. Let's talk about caste systems. The caste system is deem demoniac by the disciplic succession of the Hare Krishnas and the Vaishnava's. It was never supposed to be like it is in now. The Moslem Monguls (another abrahamic religion) came in and used the vanashram dharma, that states that everyone has different propensities of work and does not depend on what family you are born in. Also, Kali devi isn't one of the main dieties in India.

Hinduism should not be discussed by people who swim in shallow waters…….Hinduism is a family of beliefs….Abrahamic religions come no where near Hinduism……upgrade your database.

Almighty God, what absolute, total ignorance!!! To "witness" is a kind of a code word for "convert them to Christianity." The essence of Hinduism is:
1. There is only ONE GOD that pervades the Universe. S/He is beyond names, so called "That," or also BRHMN (Brahman).
2. Mystics and visionaries, over the millennia, have come up with their personal visions of God, which took form as images or idols, which people found easy to worship. They have such mystical implications. Ganesha, the Elephant headed God, for instance: the elephant head represents prodigious memory. One of his tusks is broken, implying He has overcome the extremes of craving and aversion. Large ears represent the ability to hear the scriptures. The large belly represents the ability to digest and dissolve all difficulties.
3. The ONE supreme is also considered to have three forms/functions: Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. Why a destroyer? That is the nature of life….birth, living and death. Each of the three deities has a male form and female form, as there are masculine and feminine forces in nature, like Yin and Yang in the Chinese tradition.
4. Even "seemingly ignorant" Hindus know that the Idol is not God, but a form to worship, to reach God and ask for blessings.
5. In Christianity, with its deeply, deeply flawed ideology, we are born "sinners" who can only be saved by devotion to Jesus. In Hinduism we are all born with pristine pure souls, but ego and other negativity of the mind such as anger, hatred, greed, and so on, overshadow our pure inner nature. We just need to realize the Truth, and learn our inner divine nature. We are born again and again, to further and further experience the magnificence of God's creation. Once we deeply realize our true inner nature, there is no need to be born again and we dwell with God forever. (Unless) we want to be born again to teach others.

So please stop perpetuating this ignorance and teaching this ignorance to the young people in your ministries. For instance your absolute ignorance of the Swastika is amazing. It is not a symbol of fair skinned "Aryans" but rather a sacred symbol, thousands of years old, part of the Hindu tradition. India is a blend of multiple races. Swastika, Su-hasthika, means, that which is auspicious. Absolutely no racial or skin tone implications whatsoever. Did you know that the "Star of David" is also equally sacred in India? Enough from me. Just please, stop this display of total ignorance of other religions. The "Fat Buddha" has nothing to do with the Buddha at all, OK? The Buddha taught the "Middle Way," no extremes of starvation or indulgence, for instance.

I am a Hindu and have many past memories and I say god is light and help u do good deeds but it can also make u free to its devotee but not all get freedom through god and there starts Hinduism spiritual yogic practice to get free from birth and death cycles by yourself through meditation with the help of god. But it's your own path and hardwork to know urself and be free from Maya without fully depending on god.

Sin is pre-existing in all. Sin pre-dates The Bible. The Bible explains origins of sin. The Bible provides remedy for sin through Jesus Christ. The Bible is best selling book in the world for this reason.

Sin is the opium.

In The Bible we know Who made the world, who marred it, who ransacked it, and Who restored it.

Media, Police, Defense, Judiciary, Penitentiary, Security, Contracts confirm sin exists.

God created universe, natural laws, made man in His image, gave talents, instructed man to explore and multiply. We are made good with good purpose. We are good. Then sin entered and we fallen. Disease, despair, death entered. Sin plays spoilsport.

Unloose the Soul from the tight knot of sin. Soul outlasts death.

Religion says "Do". Jesus Christ says "Done".

Sinners cannot save themselves from sin. Jesus Christ, the Holy God, intervened to save us from sin.

Jesus Christ came from heaven (The First Christmas), died willingly for our sins on The Cross (The First Good Friday), and resurrected death (The Resurrection Day, also linked to Easter). Jesus Christ lived a Holy life, while on earth.

Unable to find any motive for Jesus Christ to die willingly on Cross and resurrect – except His love to save us from pre-existing sin.

Jesus Christ suffered, understands our pain. He raised victorious, we can too.

Salvation from sin is free gift of God in Jesus Christ. Salvation is not earned through works or deeds or pilgrimages or rituals or ceremonies or traditions or cultures or public displays or making sacrifices.

Believe, repent of sins and accept Jesus Christ, and be saved. Simple. Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

Pretty decent job guys. I am an ex hindu. Praise be to the LORD. But my family back my home is still hindu. I can understand how hard it is to hold your laughter at the Ganesha's 'head transplant' part.
Right now, I'm preaching the gospel to my family. I am doing it sincerely leaving it in the hands of The LORD God Almighty in the name of his Son and our Lord and Savior Jesus. Pray for me. ?
