Reading about another religion

Filed under: World Unity — ravenbird @ 11:57 pm

I was reading a Hindu website.  One of my favorite; I get their newsletter.  After reading one of the articles, I started reading comments that people had about the article and came across an evangelistic Christian who decided that all Hindus are wrong and decided to tell them so on their website.  I commend the Hindu site for leaving that tirade there.

What I really want to know is why is it that Christians believe that everyone in the world is wrong unless they participate in their brand of Christianity and not just Christianity in general?  I’ve even heard Christians say that other Christians aren’t Christian!! 

Got me!  I don’t get it.

I was on a bus, coming back from a cruise with my Mom this past year.  The bus driver decided that everyone on the bus leaving the ship and going to the airport, an international captive audience, should hear the tape that he was playing.  It was a tape extolling the virtues of Christianity and the value of a religious war against the Islam in particular. 

Isn’t God God?  What’s the point of going to war about how God is worshipped?

I told him to turn it off because it offended me.  My Mom, who doesn’t like to become involved in confrontation, told me to leave him alone.  The driver told me that he was playing the tape to improve himself.  I told him to keep it private.  He turned it off.

How come the Christians can’t see that all God/desses are One?   What makes these people think that the people they are trying to convert can’t think for themselves?   I believe that if I’ve listened to your arguments and decide against them, then I should be honored for listening (instead of punching you in the nose) .  You should do the same for me.
