The Evangelical Christians have declared a war on Hinduism and are pouring hundreds of
thousands of dollars into their pernicious agenda of converting a many Hindus as possible.
Hinduism is the oldest of the world's religions and has always rejected the concept of
proselytisation. It spread throughout South East Asia through the truth of it's teachings that
were absorbed spontaneously by the local populace. Hindus have never sent out missionaries
to convert others and have always welcomed other religions and have given them space to
build their churches, mosques and synagogues — even contributing to their construction.
Now the same people that we welcomed as guests have now these ingrates have begun to
deconstruct the house in which they were welcomed!

WHY HINDUS SHOULD REJECT JESUS
By Pandit Srirama Ramanuja AchariThe Evangelical Christians have declared a war on Hinduism and are pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into their pernicious agenda of converting a many Hindus as possible.Hinduism is the oldest of the world's religions and has always rejected the concept of proselytisation. It spread throughout South East Asia through the truth of it's teachings that were absorbed spontaneously by the local populace. Hindus have never sent out missionariesto convert others and have always welcomed other religions and have given them space tobuild their churches, mosques and synagogues — even contributing to their construction.Now the same people that we welcomed as guests have now these ingrates have begun todeconstruct the house in which they were welcomed!My position is that Christianity is a false religion. It is one in which I was baptised and which Ihave rejected. The reasons being many, but above all it is a religion based entirely on falsepremises such as Adam & Eve, talking snakes, original sin, vicarious sacriice, resurrection of dead bodies etc. The God of the Christians is an angry, unstable, cranky, spiteful, ungratefulmalicious being — who is even worse than the Asuras of Hinduism.The entire ediice of evangelical

 Christianity is the Bible. All the evangelical churches claimthat the Bible is “The Literal Word of God” in it's entirety, revealed by the Holy Spirit. Moderntextual criticism has shown that the Bible is a work of multiple authors who wrote pieces of it over many centuries. It is exactly what we Hindus call a Purana. It has a few extracts of historybut consists mainly of tribal legends, myths, magic, hymns etc. The Bible is divided into theJewish Scriptures called The Old Testament, and the Christian addition which is called theNew Testament. The Old Testament in it's ixed form was put together by the rabbis at theCouncil of Yavneh in around 70 CE. The New Testament was cobbled together by vote at theCouncil of Niceah by a council of 300 bishops.In this article I base all my arguments entirely on the Bible itself, assuming for the sake of debate that it is Truly the Word of God. Now if this is so, then Christianity must fulil all theconditions that are prescribed in the Bible for it to be considered a valid religion and Jesusmust be validated by the Bible for who he claims to be. So in this article I lay before discerningreaders evidence from the Bible itself for each and every thinking person to decide forhim/herself. I do not present any Hindu arguments for or against. I merely take the Bible asevidence. I personally do not accept the Bible as the word of God but my personal opinion isirrelevant for this discussion, what matters is what the Christians themselves claim andbelieve and ask us to believe too! Many Hindus take a very accommodating attitude andinclude Jesus among the great Yogis or even an avatara of Vishnu himself. There is absolutelyno historical evidence that Jesus even existed let alone textual evidence that he became a Yogior an enlightened being! As for being an incarnation of Vishnu — the idea is ludicrous! So Iask my readers please to have an open mind and allow the text to speak for itself.
1There are 2 major divisions in the Christian community. The Catholics are the original group. The Protestants are a breakaway group who are sub-divided into thousands of sects. Among these the fundamentalists or evangelicals arethe one's who are the most aggressive in their pursuit of converts and are currently engaged in spreading their delusions to the poor of the developing world using enticements such as aid, food etc.
