“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son*, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John3:16) Those who accept Jesus as the only saviour will ascend to heaven & those who do not will burn for ever in the blazing fire of hell.Bible viewed pagan gods as Devils.Andidol-worshippers as Devil-Worshippers * “only begotten son” is Jesus Christ.
The sole aim of missionaries was to ruin Hindu society & culture, and take over Hindu homeland. Jesus Christ and Christianity have been rejected by the modern West but which Christian missions are forcing on East ,to find a new home for Christianity .They are doing Mass Conversion of Hindus this with the help of mediaMissionaries understated Hinduism and exaggerated Christianity and Bible. power & Western wealth.
First Christian encounter in India Christians were persecuted by there own brethren in SYRIA. So they fled towards India and China. They were received well by Hindus of Malabar. They build houses and Churches in Malabar. And were allowed to practice there religion. After arrival of Portuguese, Syrian Christians showed there real color and turned against Hindus.
Destruction of Vedapuri Iswaran Temple A.R.Pillai records(17 mar 1746) “...on Wednesdaynight at 11,two unknown persons entered Iswarantemple carrying in a vessel of liquid filth, which theypoured on the heads of the Gods...”Iswaran temple was the principal place of worshipfor Hindus of Pondicherry. The Jesuit missionariesbuilt a church of St. Paul adjacent to it and got anorder from the King of France that the Iswarantemple should be destroyed. Even after it was the main place of worship forHindus. Ther were so many controversiesregarding the temple but it was destroyed cruelly.
Abomination done in templeA.R.Pillai records “… then Father Coeurdoux of Karkil came with a great hammer, kicked the lingam, broke it with hammer...” “...then Varlam also kicked the great lingam 9 or 10 times with his sandals in the presence of Madame Dupleix & priest, & spat on it, out of gladness,...”
Christianity vs. Hinduism Christianity Hinduism Jesus saved mankind by Everybody pays for his himself suffering the own sins. Repentance is punishment for the sins of the real cure for sins. It is mankind. Sins get washed impossible for anyone to by simply believing in escape the Jesus. consequences of one‟s Christian salvation is a sins.It is also unjust to state of being called make someone else heaven with all celestial suffer for one‟s own sins. pleasures. So the desires Hinduism says when grows.

HOAX ABOUT AT. JUDAS THOMAS St. Thomas was brother and an apostle of Christ.We are told by Catholic Church that Christianity came to India in 72 A.D. with St.Thomas. What difference does it make that Christianity came to India in the first or fourth century? The motives were as follow: If it can be established that Christianity is as ancient as Hinduism no one can nail it as an imported creed from West. Church said that St. Thomas was killed by Brahmins. Now it can be shown Brahmins were vicious. According to Christians missionaries,India might have been Hindu homeland. But since St. Thomas stepped on her soil, it has become Christian land.
Swami Dayananda found Jesus as a man not as a son of god. He said the fraud should be exposed and the innocent people saved. His performance in public debates not only helped to stop further conversions but also gave birth to a new movement-Swami Dayananda Saraswati Suddhi.
“You train and educate men to do what?To come over my country to curse and abuse all my forefather, my religion and everything.They walk near a temple and say „you idolators you will go to hell.’But they dare not do that to Mohammedans of India;the swordSwami Vivekananda would be out.But hindus are too mild...”
Mahatma Gandhi‟s prolonged dialogue with Christian missionary left the Hindus at home defenseless. Mahatma Gandhi‟s ideology of sarva-dharma- sambhav leads to two conclusions . •Either his own perception about Sanatan Dharma was not as deep as it sounds“Whatever of substance is contained in other Orreligion is always to be found in Hinduism, and •Politician in him prevailedwhat is not in it is insubstantial and unnecessary.” over his spiritual perception.
Mahatma Gandhi Mahatma Gandhi regarded all religion as tolerant as Hinduism.He never saw atrocities done by Islam and Christianity. He failed to notice the true character of Christian missionaries and thought that he could tame them with reasonableness and good manners. The mischievous myth of Sermon of the mount was not known to Christians before Gandhi came to scene. Now onward Christians could strut around with superior airs.
Mindless slogan: Sarva-Dharma-Sambhava Mahatma Gandhi coined and made fashionable the utterly thoughtless slogan of sarva-dharma-sambhava. If Gandhiji gave the slogan in hope of winning over Christians and Muslims then the attempt proved to be total failure. No other slogan has proved more mischievous for Hindus than the slogan sarva-dharma-sambhava.
Maharishi Dayananda and SwamiVivekananda upheld the Veda anddespised the Bible and the Quran. Theyhad a great impactOn the other hand Mahatma Gandhi‟srecognisation of Christianity and Islamequal to Sanatan Dharma was fraughtwith great mischief.
Raja Ram Mohan Roy had demolished the most important Christian dogmas. But all along ,he kept Jesus on a high pedestal. But the Brahmo Samaj he founded had to pay a high price for his praise of Jesus. They were alienated from their own religion , Hinduism and somehowRaja Ram Mohan Roy preached Christianity .
Christianity: After Independence of India Independence of India proved to be boom for Christianity. The Christian right to convert Hindus was incorporated in constitution. The bans on Christian missionaries during British rule were now uplifted .Proselytisation was much easier now. Convents, Hospitals, Schools, Orphanages etc became centers of mass proselytisation. Indians were very much attracted towards them because of excellent services provided by them. These programmes of mass proselytisation were financed by rich foreign countries.
Mother Teresa was a synthetic product manufactured by Christian media power and prize– distribution devices. She was a true daughter of church. All she has done is to portray Hindu society in nasty and negativeMother Teresa colours.
Jesus had said that the pieces of bread he was distributing were his body and the wine with which he was filling his disciple‟ cups was his blood. Can a civilized man speak like this? No one except an uncouth Jesus told his followers to eat bread savage would commandtogether as a way to remember his death his disciples to eat his and what he did for them. -Luke 22:19. flesh and drink his blood.
Christians says that Jesus performed miracles. He was the only son of god and that nobody can reach god except by his recommendation. If he had any spiritual powers, he would have saved himself from such a shameful death. He was not even a man of honor. Had he been one, he wouldThe Death have fought back and died as a heros death.
One of his apostles, Judas sold him for 30 pieces of silver. Others ran away when their teacher was caught and hanged. Yet we are told that these apostles will sit with Jesus on the day of judgmentJudas ,an apostle of Jesus betrayed .Who could expect justice him. from judges of this kind?
INDIAN CONSTITUTION Article 25:“Every Indian has a freedom of propagation of religion. But forcible conversion is an offence.” Article 25 of the constitution has given us the freedom of free profession and propagation of religion. Freedom of propagation does not mean conversion but Christian missionaries have taken disadvantage of this freedom. Missionaries are funded by organizations in abroad for this illegal activity.

Proselytisation Since Independence Poor people often approached missionaries for loans which are written off if the debtor becomes convert otherwise he will have to repay the loans. It was tough to get employed in those days. The new converts were employed as pracharaks on salaries ranging from 40/- to 100/-per month. It attracted other unemployed non-converts. Dramas in which idol worship was ridiculed were performed in schools and colleges. The supremacy of Christian flag over Indian flag was depicted in a drama which was staged in Jabalpur.
The Indian native rulers have proved far more helpful to the Christian missions. They have provide constitutional protection to them. Now it is possible for missionaries to enter the areas from where the British had kept them out. Christianity came to acquire a prestige which it had enjoyed never beforePropagating Christianity in India.
An independent Christian State Christian missionaries were not satisfied. Its ambition was to divide India again. The scheme was to have a sovereign Christian state composed of tribal areas in north east and central India. The two enclaves were to be linked together by a corridor towards Christian population in Madras presidency and the princely states of Travancore and Cochin. But the communists in north-east had the same aim in cooperation with Red-China. Their was a violent uprising. Thousands of lives have been lost.
Polytheism If monotheism represents man‟s intuition for unity ,polytheism represents his urge for differentiation. Spiritual life is one but is very vast and rich. So the human mind also conceives it differently. If all human had same mind , the same imagination ,the same needs ,in short ,if human all were the same ,then perhaps one god would do. So only some form of polytheism can do justice to this variety and richness.
Vedic Approach:Unity without sacrificing Diversity The distinction is not between a true One God and false Many Gods. It is between a true way of worship and a false way of worship. If there is sincerity ,truth and self-giving in worship, that worship goes true by whatever way we may conceive. If it has ego ,falsehood ,conceit and deceit in it, it is of no use though it may be offered to the most true god
Plight of the converts Church converted Hindus from schedule cast and tribes because ,according to church cast system was not allowing to improve their conditions. But even Christianity had in no way improved their position. Besides the converts found themselves in worst plight after leaving their ancestral society.
Rejection of Jesus in theWest If someone studies the history he will find that Christianity and Islam have created religious wars, massacres, genocides, rapine, iconoc lasm, slave trade and so on. Jesus Christ and Christianity has been rejected by western scholars. He is no longer an historical figure. Christianity is losing its hold in the place of its origin. So church is imposing itself on developing countries to survive.
Hindu Tolerance Islam and Christianity has imposed there way of worship on other people by the means of force and fraud. It was only after the advent of Islam and Christianity that Hindus were terrorized into habit of silent.
Hinduism has survived the Islamicattack spread over more than ThirteenHundred years and Christian attacksustained for five centuries.WHY....???Because anything that has truth in it cannot be destroyed.
Pat Robertson is a billionaire businessmen. He is also an top TV Evanglist.Pat Robertson
Views of Pat Robertson On 23 March 1995, Robertson appeared on the „700 Club‟ TV which he controls. There he said: Devil- worship dreadful idolatry prevalent in Hinduism is responsible for Indi‟s poverty and other ills. According ho him, Hindus kill other human being on the name of God.
Sita Ram Goel responded Robertson in aletter(15 July 1955):“Hindus are an ancient people and havesurvived many storms including thosemounted by Islam and its elder bloodbrother-Christianity. We are here for longbefore your Jehovah and Jesus wereinvented by the diabolic drives in humannature....”“And we will be here long after the Biblestarts selling as waste paper on pavementsaround the world.”
Vedic tradition has given to the worldschools of Sanatn dharma which havepracticed peace among their ownfollowers as well as towards thefollowers of other paths.Whereas Biblical tradition has spawnedcults likeChristianity, Islam, Communism andNazism which have always producedviolent conflicts as much within their owncamps as with each other.
