Hard Questions About the Bible

About Hinduism

Does the existence of other religions prove that the Bible is not true?  We talked about Buddhism, now let’s look at Hinduism.  I’ll compare and contrast later.

The following information is from http://www.religionfacts.com/hinduism/overview.htm

The term ‘Hinduism’ includes numerous traditions, which are closely related and share common themes but do not constitute a unified set of beliefs or practices.

Hinduism has no founder or date of origin.  the authors and dates of most Hindu sacred texts are unknown.  Scholars describe modern Hinduism as the product of religious development in India that spans nearly four thousand years.

Hinduism is not a homogeneous, organized system.  Many Hindus are devoted followers of Shiva or Vishnu, whom they regard as the only true god, while others look inward to the divine self.  But most recognize the existence of Brahman, the unifying principe and Supreme Reality behind all that is.

The first sacred writings, which date to about 1200 BC, were primarily concerned with the ritual sacrifices with numerous gods who represented forces of nature.  A more philosophical focus began to develop around 700 BC.

Hindi thought has influenced the West indirectly by way of religious movements like Hare Krishna and New Age.
