The Whole Truth About Those Who Debase and Derogate Other Religions

Balgrim
Ragoonanan


Anyone who thinks that he/she?has?some kind of corner on
religious and spiritual beliefs and practices, and believes he/she?can
take another person to task for exposing the falsehood of an only
pathway to God are?welcome to do so.?I am prepared to defend the
legitimacy of all religions as I research and understand them better,
especially when God and religion are?purely for the transformation of
the human heart to the higher?state of the divine.?I?have been doing
studies?ever since I joined?the membership of?the?Trinidad &
Tobago?Online Community,?when it was once fashionable to deride,
derogate,?defame and characterize Hinduism?as being outside the frame
of?legitimate religions.


Many?try to mislead others by diverting the intent of
some?discussions on religion, either by not understanding or pretending
not to understand what they read. They may even,?by deliberate intent,
try to detract from the intent of any of the truths?of some religious
threads and posts, and try to?take them?in another direction with a red
herring approach, ignoring the gist and point of the article or
post.?I?choose to deal with such tactics?in my own way which is
sometimes only intuited as doing what is right. No one pretending to lay
claims to the truth about an only pathway to God, especially by
historical debasing of other religions as?false religions or one
as?devil?worship or?demonic will?go unchallenged, as long as?I am still a
member in?good standing of?the Trinidad & Tobago Online
Community.???

Yes,
I painstakingly do the research to learn more about all religions in my
free time?and for my own spiritual enrichment.?It is also my?way of
serving?some?others in the Hindu and other communities?who may?feel a
need for more information as aggressive proselytizers approach them.
In?my own little way, I believe I am providing a service to the Hindu
and perhaps some other communities?with my postings, some of which?are
posted?widely on the Internet. I strive to?gather?information,?knowledge
and understanding at a?higher level of awareness of?both Hinduism?and
other religions.?

Everyday
I uncover growing evidences of a misunderstanding or?propaganda from
the use of the single passage of an only pathway to salvation which has
been the bone of contention for many when many Christians present
themselves as the only ones with a legitimate?religion.

The
task I assigned?to myself is to debunk the?assertion held by some
Christians that Jesus said He was the only way to salvation which I
consider to be a false interpretation for a deliberate hold on
many.?Furthermore, as I continue my research, I cannot but help see all
the connections between?the base philosophies of Hinduism and Buddhism
in?just about all religions.???

Yes,
it is historically true that Sanathana Dharma or Dharam, (eternal
truth) better know as Hinduism is a way of life, and was given the
status of a great religion only a few hundred years ago by the?British,
sometime after?they arrived?in India. Yet, these are the same people who
later tried to show that?the source of Hinduism, the Vedas, was the
writings of?childlike saints and sages, and that Hinduism was a false
religion.?They at first ridiculed the Vedas openly and went so far as to
pay?enormous sums of money to Max Muller who never set?foot on Indian
soil. The only purpose, as documented, was?to research and prove that
the writings of the Vedas,?were?false teachings, and not worthy as
religious beliefs and philosophies which he confirmed?at first, but
later had to?change as his conscience would not permit it.?

Sanathana
Dharma, like Islam, is truly a way of life, with religious and
spiritual practices governing every aspect of life, from birth to death
and beyond. The?Hindus had no need to change their spiritual practices
and call Sanathana Dharma?a religion, but the British wanted to bring it
into the fold of the great religions of the world, and so it is today
the common practice to?refer to Hinduism?as a religion and also a way of
life. Who can object to that, other than some Christians,?claiming to
belong?only to?the true religion of the world, as they try to destroy
all non-Christian religions??

But
again, look at how God works in mysterious ways, bringing the truth to
the surface. Now these?are the same people who are now beginning to
question the truth of an only pathway to God, and may now believe that
all religions are legitimate pathways to God.?The next thing they
will?admit?to is that Idol worship is not an abomination unto God to
contradict what is?described in their scriptures about Idol worship.

The?Jews
now say to Hindus that Idol worship by Hindus is ok. The Jewish
Rabbinate of Israel?learned from Hindu leaders?that Hindus internalize
all concepts and?Idols of?God as?consciousness into?the Atman which is
Brahman or God in?the hearts of all beings. They then?relented to a new
understanding of Idol worship, and now believe that?Hindus are not Idol
worshippers, since God in the heart of man cannot constitute Idol
worship.?So the question is why?Christianity, a child of Judaism,?can't
do the same????

What
can be?more debasing,?deriding,?derogating,
humiliating,?dehumanizing, etc.,?than to criticize or reject?someone's
belief in God that he knows to be right for himself in worshipping,?and
having a loving relationship with his concept and understanding of God
as the ultimate reality? One?who sincerely believes in his favorite form
of God and experiences God will be hard pressed to give up his
religion, and would not want the same for another, isn't it? Why should
one understanding of God negate another??His?ways of worshipping God and
reaping the benefits of his religious and spiritual practices become
sacred to him, and it is morally wrong to interfere with them or
chastise them for their beliefs in the same God of all.??

Each one?understands the concept of God in his own unique
ways. To say that?there is only one way to follow and love God or to
have a relationship with God, and gain salvation is as demonic as it
gets.?To say that any other way, but the?Christian?way, characterized
as?the wrong way or a demonic way is as debasing and deriding as one
can?get? That and more is the language of usage by?the proselytizers.
We?heard it all, and hear and?see?the aggression of the proselytizers
every day at our doorsteps and when they break our?temples, desecrate
out sacred images and altars,?and uproot our prayer flags. These are
facts, not propaganda, as some will have us believe. They?are well know
to all?Hindus and Christians alike in Trinidad and Tobago and elsewhere.

?
When some persons enumerate these religious crimes
and crimes of humanity or bring them to the attention of the same
proselytizers to show them the extent of their?own hypocrisies, the
favorite words of the same hypocrites, it becomes someone else's
hypocrisy,?the?debasing of another religion?and?presentations?of one
religion as better than or superior to?another. Who among all religions,
more than the Hindus, have?always believed and promoted?that all
spiritual and religious pathways are?legitimate pathways to God, and
preached the philosophy?of Vasudeva Kutumbakam – the world is one family
of nations which can share the earth peacefully with all others in
spite of religious differences?
?
But when Hindus protect themselves from consistent
daily attacks or are prepared to defend themselves against those who see
Hinduism as a threat to their only pathway to God, they are called?the
aggressors who are seeking confirmation of their own truths about their
religion. This is?in spite of a background of about eighty million?in
the Hindu holocaust over a thousand years of foreign rule in India. Not
a?single instance of continuing?discord can be found between?the Jews
who fled to India because of?persecution and their Hindu brothers and
sisters.?But what about the more recent millions in the Hindu holocaust
of?Bangladesh,?Pakistan and elsewhere where Hindus?and others are killed
everyday, and not allowed to practice their religion publicly for just
being a member of?a?minority?religion or group?
?
The true Hindu will never be satisfied to allow the
proselytizers to get away with defaming?and derogating his religion as
long as he is the object of any proselytizing zealotry. And when he does
become offended by the proselytizing zeal, guess who becomes more
offended? How odd it is that the Christian proselytizers become the ones
most offended when confronted with all their own?atrocities that
went?with?proselytizing for two thousand plus years and are still going
on today.??????
?
Current proselytizing?and recorded history of
proselytizing show the full extent of the?debasing and derogating of all
other religions by mostly?Christians, only on the basis?that Jesus is
the only way to?salvation. This is not something new,?anything?just made
up, or something that is done in secret. It is openly confessed
by?Christians, themselves, that they have the right to bring others
under the Christian umbrella at any cost or means.
The Jews and Muslims know the Christian arrogance of
being the only true religion?too well, for they, too, and others
vehemently deny Jesus as God, but only a messenger of God.?Hindus do not
go that far, because they understand the concept of God with more
openness, clarity and richness?than any other prevailing concepts of God
held by non-Hindus. Man and God, for Hindus, are One, and Godhead and
salvation is available to all in any one lifetime, in the same way Jesus
realized his divinity and arrived at Godhead at age twenty five.??
?
Go out and preach the good news became go out and
make them Christians by?hook or?crook, no matter how they resist and how
long it takes. And so Christians?did it in the Americas, Europe, Asia,
Africa and Australia where the indigenous peoples can hardly be
recognized any more. Their?rich religion, culture, language?and rich
down-to-earth way of life are mostly destroyed.?Goa, in India is where
recorded history shows the worst inquisitions ever?took?place under the
supervision of the holy man, Saint Francis Xavier, a Roman Catholic.?
?
The last Pope who visited India,?said that?India and
Asia were?now new?grounds for Christian proselytizing?or expansionism
or?some such ridiculous statement.?Is it because of a?dwindling
membership of the Church or for new sources of income from declining
Church membership in Europe and America? But is it?only
Christianization?that is promoted? No one has any objection to free
choice of religions, but?the coercion,?aggression, false promises,
extortion, bribery, spread of fear, false healing, trickery, planting
the seeds of discord among?families that?already have a religion,
pitting child against parent, one member against another, hate,
political destabilization,?undermining of patriotism, etc., being
propagated?by these same proselytizers in the name of saving souls for
Jesus.
?
No Hindu?has any quarrels with Jesus, for he was a
good,?compassionate, holy and loving man who attained Godhead in the
same manner?described in Hinduism for attaining Godhead.?The general
problem is with aggressive Christians who deliberately distort the
teachings of Jesus, the same teachings which His?disciples never
understood, in the first place, because Jesus taught in the style of
intellectual, Gnostic traditions of the Essenes, a Jewish group to which
he belonged.
?
The?spread of the fear of a Devil and the trauma
propagated by a hell of fire and brimstone is perhaps the worst of all
Christian crimes and persecutions, especially when a?child is taught to
fear an imaginary?hell of fire and brimstone as punishment for sins.
Yet, these same people?invite those without sins to throw the first
stone. So we ask who is it that are going to heaven and?why it is?so
important for all to be saved when no one is without sin?
?
Members of converting families?who?care deeply for
their?siblings?and cousins who are?non-Christians go through that same
imaginary hell of fire and brimstone, worrying unnecessarily about hell
for their non-Christian siblings and relatives. Some new Christians
are?now beginning to?understand?the Devil as a?personification of all
wrongs and misdeeds.
?
What is most objectionable, though, is that these
same Christians?do not even adhere to their own God-given ten
commandments, but they want others to join them in a one way to
salvation movement which cannot be achieved?with the same sin when they
invite?others to?throw the first stone when morality is mentioned as a
problem. Yet they?often will admit that they do?not?observe?all the ten
commandments, but want others to follow them.?But how many versions of
the ten commandments are there? And they openly challenge you to show
you that they are right to commit their crimes of religious passion,
because you are not a saint either and are?a sinner. So they ask who is
without sin as their philosophy of defense when questioned about their
right and wrong and their morality?
?
Let him who is without sin throw the first stone is
their slogan in defense of the horrors they commit in their
proselytizing zeal. How absurd it is that one wrong is a good reason for
justifying and?committing?others.
?
What is most objectionable, though, about?some of
these proselytizing zealots is?their brain-washing tactics used
on?simple people who already have?rich religions and cultures and?even
languages and ways of life that go back for centuries?and are being
destroyed. This should be a grave?concern for?everyone. ????
?
Bloody religious proselytizing?did not happen?for
one year,?ten years or a hundred years, but has been going on, non-stop,
for two thousand plus years. How many innocent, God-loving people lost
their lives only because they understood God in a variety of rich ways,
and worshipped God differently from some?standard practices that
continue to?reinforce?the flow of the blood of Jesus?just for salvation,
as if they themselves experienced salvation?before, when they do not
even believe in reincarnation and believe only in one lifetime.
?
Innocent non-Christians?see?Christians?in the
spirit of?the sister/brotherhood?of woman/man and the fatherhood of God.
The?are fully?prepared to live in peace and harmony with people of all
religions. Little do they?know?or are?prepared for the day when
they?will be?targets of Christian persecution and even elimination as
individuals?or who knows, an entire race.?
?
Besides, the only way doctrine was misunderstood
from the beginning. It is now believed by some of the more enlightened
and renowned Christians of today?that Jesus is not the only way to
salvation.?But this is after two thousand years of incorrigible
aggression, based on a false belief or a false doctrine, by
misinterpretation, perpetrated on innocent people. But who can doubt
that it is better late than never??
?
While the damage is already done, not?a single
apology is forth coming from the leaders who promoted?such a belief
as?an only way to salvation. Christian proselytizers?not only object to
other forms of worship, but they gave themselves the right to destroy
them, under the guise of?saving souls, something that no one can ever
prove or even measure. How many?received salvation by accepting Jesus in
their hearts is un provable. What a quick fix, and nothing more, being
sold as Gospel truth?to the innocent, most trusting peoples of the
earth!???
?
With whips on their backs, the slaves held by
Christians for hundreds of years were?given promises of a paradise in
heaven, in exchange for their back-breaking?labor on earth.?When they
resisted, it was more whips on their backs. But no, these atrocities
must be forgotten even when they never seem to go away, as described?
today by some of the peoples of Asia,?Africa and elsewhere.??
?
Christians gave themselves the full right, for?two
thousand years, to?hound down non-Christians and convert them to
Christianity. They?debased and derogated other? religions and forms of
worship,?humiliated them, derided other?religions, forcefully?converted
or eliminated them with?the worst inquisitions know to man, removed and
destroyed objects of reverence?from?their?places of worship, burnt down
and destroyed their places of worship, etc., only because they?did
not?not conform to?Christian practices?and believed in?Jesus as the only
form of God that ever existed.
?
What can?be greater and more?debasing?to anyone who
understands God in?a variety of rich ways than rejecting their religion
as another legitimate pathway to God? It is the same as?denying?that
one's?spiritual needs cannot be met in other ways, but only by the
Christian way.
To?preach that?God?has only taken one form, ever, as
Jesus, and that Jesus?is the only way,?that all other forms of the same
God?are?false, and that worship of all other forms of God
constitute?devil worship is as debasing and humiliating as it gets??How
much more debasing and derogating can one?religion be, when it does not
even know the true origins of its own religion? Is it only because some
Christians?feel that they have the money,?the might and the right to
eliminate other religions on such flimsy grounds as an only?one way to
salvation?
?
Thank God for the Internet and?much new researches
that are?developed and readily available every day?without much effort.
They?provide us with the connections between all religions and peoples.
The abundance of information about the shifting of the tectonic plates
also help us to understand?our differences that grew markedly over time,
and our variety of rich culture and religions flourished, starting from
nature?and reverence?for the power of nature?which is?still practiced
around the globe today.
?
But no, some would rather have non-Christians
believe that all the religions before the advent of Jesus were false.
They refuse to?believe that Jesus?was another Avatar with many others
prior to Him.?They are the same ones who say that other?religions
existed long before the dawn of Christianity, but go on to advocate that
there is?only one true religion?with the advent of?Jesus. And?so,
they?removed all earlier?concepts of God and sterilized their own
concept of God, and hide God in a heaven/paradise, so much so that not
even if you wanted to see and experience God in the environment in your
own lifetime, you will still have to wait after death to see him in
heaven if you are not already consigned to hell for sins common to all
as they say with their slogan of throwing the first stone.
?
Who can doubt the proofs of the genetic origins of a
people who grew to populate the rest of the world with similar
nature-based spirituality,?religions?and beliefs,?a variety of cultures
indigenous to the regions, and related languages? Some present
themselves as?upstarts who now tell?us that they just discovered
genetic?research, and they go about challenging others as if?they
themselves discovered it.?That same truth can be found in
Hindu?scriptures. It?becomes very clear, visually, only if you take the
time to watch and study the forty two, three hours long CDs, entitled
"Om Namah Shivay" produced by Zuby Kochhar and directed by Dheeraj
Kumar, and based on Hindu scriptures.?
?
Without a sound background?in Hinduism,?most likely,
the?gist of?the stories of the evolution of man, religion, culture and
languages in the video series will?be missed or misunderstood. It shows
how the demonic or?power dominating?people once?tried to conquer
the?devas or god-centered, loving people, and how the?battles ensued
over the stealing of what rightfully belonged to others. It further
shows?how after?the shifting of the tectonic plates, the demonic
forces?moved out of India where the Nile/Indus valleys once nurtured the
origins of?civilization from which religions, culture,?languages, etc.,
emerged.??
?
As disasters occurred people of the Nile/Indus
Valley civilization?moved out?and populated?the rest of the world.
The?battles between?the gods or devas did not end in the Nile/Indus
valley civilization. They?took with them many aspects of?Indian
religions and culture?to other parts of the world, and which got
modified over time to produce new religions, with mostly the original
religious stories and philosophies of the Vedas, modified as we can
see?in the original Vedic/Hindu story of two birds on a tree. It got
modified to the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. Similarly,
is the story of Noah and the flood, the birth of Lord Krishna, and many
more historical events that can be found in?Hindu scriptures and
modified to look diferently in the Bible.?
Hindu scriptures?clearly explain the origins?of?the
demonic or non-dharmic people, and how they populated the rest of the
world with?remnants of the?origins of?the Hindu religion.
?
Everything done in darkness must come to light is
the old adage which?are?the fears of these marauding, aggressive
proselytizers who disguise money-making ventures as religion, under the
guise of saving souls for Jesus.??
