Default Hinduism = Demon Worship!

It doesn't take a lengthy sermon to expose the Hindu religion, because they worship all sorts of false gods and demons. The more difficult religions to expose are the one's who claim to be "Christian" and mimic the Christian faith, such as Seventh-Day Adventism (SDA's). SDA's are of the Devil, because the teach works salvation, although the deny it. The Catholics are guilty of the same double-talk, worshipping Mary while verbally denying it. Hinduism is easy to expose, if you believe that the Bible is God's Word.

Quote:
"Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour." -Isaiah 43:10,11

There is only ONE True God, not hundreds.
The Godhead became incarnate in the flesh and Person of Jesus Christ (John 1:1-3,14; 10:33; 1st Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9; Revelation 1:8). The Word of God is abundantly clear in 1st John 2:22,23 that Hinduists are LIARS and ANTICHRISTS... "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also." Just as Wicca Witchcraft boasts of worshipping HUNDREDS of false gods, so does Hinduism worship a host of false gods...

The Word of God couldn't be any clearer that JESUS CHRIST is the ONLY way to Heaven... "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). The unsaved world has always followed religion, but they DON'T have Jesus Christ. The common consensus today is that it doesn't matter what you believe, because every religion worships the SAME GOD. Nothing could be further from the truth. Muslims deny the Son of God, but John 3:16 says that God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for men's sins. Clearly, we do NOT worship the "same" God. Hinduism's gods are of the Devil, because that's where they originated (from demonic spirits). The Ten Commandments absolutely forbids worshipping any other God than the God of Israel. Of course, most Israelites today reject Jesus Christ and worship a false god of their own in Judaism. Judaism is based upon the morally reprehensible Talmud, which openly blasphemes the Lord Jesus Christ. The truth has few friends these days.

If you are following Hinduism, you have believed a lie of Satan. Biblically, there is only one God--manifest in Jesus Christ (1st Timothy 3:16). Jesus is EQUAL with God the Father in every way (Philippians 2:6-King James Bible). Jesus is Almighty God! You don't have to go to Hellfire, but you will if you die in your sins without Christ. Hinduism speaks of enlightenment and peace; but the Bible is abundantly clear in Romans 5:1 that peace can only be obtained through Jesus Christ... "Therefore being justified by faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Satan is a liar, and wants you to believe that you can find peace and understanding through occultism and meditation. There is NO understanding apart from the Word of God... "Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way" (Proverb 20:24). You need God my friend. Hinduism will take you to Hell. The truth is that you are a sinner, and you need a Savior. Jesus Christ paid the price for your sins, and mine, because He loves us. Christ shed His precious blood for our sins (1st Peter 1:18,19).

Most false religions don't address the issue of sin. Karma is "cause and effect" much like Buddha taught in Buddhism. It is the idea that everything one does will affect him in a later life. Karma is a lie. Most Hindus live morally upright lives, and are honest and hardworking people; thus, they think that their "Karma" is going to gain them peace and bliss in the afterlife. Wrong! 2nd Thessalonians 1:8,9 expose such a damnable notion... "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power." It doesn't matter how high you think your Karma may be, you WILL be punished in the tormentuous flames of Hellfire if you refuse to obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ and die in your sins. The bottom line is that you are a sinner (Romans 3:10,19-23). We are all sinners, GUILTY under God's Law, and justly deserving of Hellfire. Thus, every man needs a Savior. Jesus died, was buried, and rose again triumphant. He shed His blood and applied that blood to the Mercyseat in Heaven to take away our sins. If you do go to Hell, you will have no one to blame except yourself.

Ye Must Be Born Again!

Why would anyone believe in this travesty of a religion when the True Word of God is available to all?

This is how cow worshipping cultists should be treated when they attempt to spread their lies in public:

Default Re: Hinduism = Demon Worship!

Far be it from me to give any of these hindaloos any kind of credibility, but from the looks of that elephant they just might have some republicanism in them somewhere - at least according to last week's election results in India.

Few of us would trust something called a "BJ" (Bharatiya Janata) party, but they claim to be "conservative", pro business, Narendra Modi is a former "tea seller", and they all don't have much use for mooselimbs - all a good start in my book. Maybe Jesus doesn't send them straight to hell, but permits them their wish to be reincarnated as cockroaches.

Quote:
Election-winner Narendra Modi: 21st century belongs to India
Hindu nationalist arrives to take the reins in Delhi to jubilant crowds, but fears remain about divisive sectarian policies

Narendra Modi, the controversial Hindu nationalist who won a landslide victory in India's general election on Friday, made a triumphant entry to the capital, Delhi, on Saturday.

Tens of thousands of supporters welcomed the new prime minister, who until a few years ago was the little-known chief minister of the western state of Gujarat, but whose blending of nationalism with the promise of economic and cultural revival struck a chord with voters.

India is still reeling from the scale of Modi's win. Few predicted his conservative, pro-business Bharatiya Janata party, in opposition since 2004, would win 282 of the 543 directly elected seats in India's lower house. With existing allies, the total number of parliamentarians in the current BJP-led coalition rises to more than 340. No party has won by such a margin since 1984.

"The results were historic ... It is evident that the Indian voter has delivered an epochal verdict," wrote Anil Padmanabhan in Mint, a local business newspaper.

The centre-left Congress, which has governed India for all but 18 of the past 67 years, won only 44 seats, considerably lower than the most pessimistic of its own internal predictions and its worst performance. Rahul Gandhi, 43, scion of India's most famous political dynasty and the face of the party's campaign, accepted responsibility for the defeat at a press conference on Friday night.

"Now we are in an absolute majority we are capable of doing anything," said Bala Das Sharma, 42, a homeopathic doctor from the nearby town of Ghaziabad, who had travelled to "salute the new prime minister".

….

Modi, 63, a former tea seller whose background sets him apart from the established political and cultural elite of Delhi and was a major factor in his success, spoke briefly to party workers. "This victory belongs to you," he told them, before leaving for the holy city of Varanasi, one of the two seats from which he was elected, where he will offer prayers on the banks of the Ganges at sunset.

The new prime minister is a deeply polarising figure whom many Muslims in India – around 14% of the population – fear. Modi, the former organiser in the country's biggest Hindu revivalist organisation, has been accused of failing to stop, or even encouraging, sectarian riots in which 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed in Gujarat shortly after he took power there. The violence followed an arson attack on a train full of Hindu pilgrims in which 59 died. Modi has always denied wrongdoing and a supreme court investigation found insufficient evidence to support the charges against him.
