Hinduism And Christianity Similarities

Improved Essays
Our world has many different religions but we are only concentrating on Christianity and Hinduism. They have man differences and little to none similarities from different views to leaders. Many think they are more similar but I’m here to prove them wrong.
The obvious difference is they are from a different worldview. Christianity is from the Linear Worldview and Buddhism is from the Cyclical Worldview. Linear Worldview, mostly Christianity, believes in a creator and an event that will conclude the creation. The fundamental belief is that God stays in contact with his creations and Jesus Christ is the revelation of the nature of God and Savior of all who believes and the believers grow their relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

For example, Christianity has the Holy Bible that is read and is used in sermons. It is the instruction manual for life and is the best book to go to when you need something to help you through troubles and Hinduism has the four basic Vedic books Rig-Veda, Vajure-Veda, Sama-Veda, and Atharva-Veda. They are made of four parts, the first section contains mantras, the second has ritual materials, the third section has Aranyakas, and the last on has philosophical materials. The books are used for knowledge or sacred lore. Since I haven’t really seen the books or ever been to this religion’s teachings I’m not completely sure what they use the books for. Christianity has certain days when they go to church. Each branch in this religion can vary in the way they go through their ‘worship’ but I go to a Pentecostal church and it is a bit different from a catholic church. We start by having greeters by the door and it’s no lie we talk for hours before and after service. Once we start church we have a choir sing songs, but we don’t use hymnals, we use regular sheet music and sings songs from a popular church. Then we pray over people and the offering while the choir sings. The preacher starts their sermon after that. Hinduism is a bit different since they have multiple Gods and sacrifice. They tend to worship at home and …show more content…
Jesus Christ and Gandhi are very important in the history and growth. Jesus was a traveling minister and helped the people in need. He was the “son of God” and was well known by the people, some even crowded him for help. One story I thought was helpful to convert my friends was telling the story of Jesus healing a blind man from his spit in the mud he used to spread on the man’s eyes. There are so many stories about him in the Bible and it even has his death on the cross and detail on what happened before and after. Mohandas K Gandhi was an important figure for Hinduism. Even though he was born hundreds of years after Jesus he helped lead the Hindis into a better standing. He developed political and social benefits to the people near the end of the British rule. He promoted many morals to push the people into a non-violence ideal and a teacher for his religion to grow to be

    When I attend Community Bible Church I almost always take notes during the sermon, no one was taking notes at St. Matthew. I noticed how the Catholic mass has a sequence that remains the same for prayer, music and pattern and regardless of what language you speak you can still follow. Communion was dispersed and is distributed at each mass where at my church we only receive communion about once per quarter and on special occasions like Christmas and Easter. I did not participate in communion when I attended St. Matthew. I noticed some other people not partaking and later learned that some of those people had not gone to…

    During the time of Jesus Christ his teachings inspired an innumerable people. Looking at history, Christians during the rule of the Roman Empire were oppressed.

    Every culture has different beliefs. A few weeks ago, I went to a Catholic church for my cultural plunge project. It was a new experience for me because it was my first time going to a church. According to what I have learned from the textbooks, Christianity and Catholicism carry some elements in common, such as the similarities in the worship of Christ and the practices of prayer as well as bible reading. For that reason, it is difficult to distinguish the differences between the two.…

    Many of Paul’s sermons were targeted messages and addressed the common ground of a particular audience. Paul contextualized his messages and shared stories to help his audiences understand the gospel. If the demographic of the audience were educated people, Paul adapted his message to ensure everyone was able to grasp his messages. Because Paul was a rabbi, teacher, and lawyer, it helped Paul to win souls from the urban elite to the uneducated farmer. Even when Paul confronted people, his messages were about Jesus and his death burial and resurrection.…

    Introduction Something that was really important in Church history was the spreading of the word of God. Many people have dropped everything and went out and told people about who God is and how to live in a lifestyle that is devoted to God. Jesus has told us, in Matthew 28, to go out and share what we have learned from him to all the nations. There are so many people who have taken this commandment to heart and as a result have impacted Church history and also have made an impact on how missions is portrayed today. Ulfilas and Paul are prime examples of missionaries who have impacted Church History.…

    “‘You need to come to church with your family. I don’t care what you say,’ my mom told us every Sunday. In the Catholic Church, they never explained it to children. It was all about, you can sin and do whatever you want during the week, but then on Sundays you would come and repent. All we learned was the same things,” Jason said this matter-of-factly while sitting on the couch at his friend’s Tony house in the middle of the Colts vs.…

    He preached about God’s Love, the Kingdom of God, how to express and demonstrate love for God, to know and obey God’s commandments, and to have faith in Him and God. However, to the Christian Worldview, Jesus is so much more than a teacher, He is the Messiah, and our savior. His ultimate role on earth was to be man’s salvation by not only being crucified on the cross for our sins but by also rising from the dead and ascending to heaven to sit by His Father. However, the redemption of humanity is not the end of the story, human nature at its very core is subject to sin. There needs to be restoration, a “renewal of all creatures, particularly humanity, to the worship of God” (Merrick, n.d. para.…

    (Letter from Mara bar Serapion to his son 73-180 BC) Eluding that Christians continued to practice what Jesus taught them, even after his death. While being a teacher, and a healer, Jesus Christ (Messiah) would create a movement of Christianity and teachings about love, forgiveness, and Father in Heaven are that are followed and practiced to this day. While there are many non Christians and other religions, many of these people, while they may not believe in Jesus, know the history of Jesus, and the events surrounding his life and death. Not everyone in history believed in or liked Jesus, he was a significant part of history, for both Christians and non…

    Jesus shows us that Christian’s are people who believe in the word of God, who trust in the Word of God and who spread the Word of God throughout the world to gain more followers for this historical Religion. To be a Christian there aren’t rules or guidelines but from our knowledge of Jesus it just means that having a special relationship with God and committing ourselves to following him and following his teaching and spreading the word of God. Christian’s believed that Jesus was the Messiah and that when he died and eventually resurrected he would allow them to be reconciled with God and that they would be offered their Salvation and they were also promised with Eternal Life. This shows us that Jesus was willing to suffer on the cross so that he could show his full promise to the will of the Eternal Father. Christian’s also believe that Jesus was human and divine at the same time.…
