Hindus need Christ. (They have no divine spark)

November 18th, 2011 Comments off

We have new Hindu neighbors.

They like to listen to Bollywood (Indian Movies) all day and night until 1am in the morning at times. The TV has big speakers and its positioned at window height right opposite our bedroom with a 6 foot gap separating us as our rooms face each other. Yet shouting to each from one room to the next, or using a blender at 11pm is now the order of the day. We hear almost all their conversations, even when they are fighting and swearing.

I have communicated with them about changing the position of the TV and about talking quietly, as at times I am awake until 1-2 am listening to Bollywood. Or I can be dosing off and I hear a shout from next door, even though I don’t sleep in the bedroom yet on the floor in the front room as its further away. We also have a teenager in the house who is studying for exams.

Yet they said they don’t want to move the TV as they like to relax and sit back from it a distance. We have been living in our current house for about 5 years and we have had various tenants living opposite. Yet never has the noise level been like this. The previous tenants moved their TV to help keep the noise level down, no problems.

Jesus said that you should love your neighbor as yourself. Now not all the words out of the mouths of religious heads are equal, nor are there many paths to God; no matter how many belong to the religion. Yet because Jesus is God and because He has paid for our sins so we can know God; we had better listen to Him.

Deuteronomy 18:15 says: The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

On a Hindu website http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/essays/animals.asp They say human life is precious.. Yet I know that after living with Hindus for a month now that they do not believe or practice what they preach, they in fact can’t perform at all as there is no power in Hinduism to do. If they thought we were precious then the TV would have been moved (or at the very least the windows next to the TV closed) and there would have been some modification in behavior like speaking with quiet voices especially at night. In life we can make pretend that we are nice and that we care for our neighbor. Yet when we do not know God, we cant give up our selfish desires to love our neighbors as ourselves.

These are zealous Hindus. Complete with chanting and burning incense, yet material possessions and ones own comfort is more important to them than the neighbors…

Reader if you are a Hindu, please the path you are own will lead to your destruction and in the end you will be separated from God forever. I say this as an observer of people, as an observer who has his soul anchored in Christ (as do all Born Again Christians). At rest we can see what is happening around us. I say this as one who has received Christ. See 1Corinthians 13:5

I know there is no divine spark in our dear Hindu neighbors or any Hindus in fact, same for Muslims etc. No one can do right by their neighbor without having received Christ.

The Bible in the Book of John, Chapter one verse 12 says: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

You see, without that power of God you cannot love your neighbor as yourself; even if you are the best Hindu/Buddhist/Muslim/ traditionalist/Mormon/Jehovah’s Witness on the planet. You in fact do not even know what true love is unless you have repented of your sins, and received the Jesus of the bible into your life. As its only then that the Love of God is shared abroad in our hearts and you are then able to love even the most undesirable in society.

I write this because I care/have Gods love for our neighbors and I am praying for an opportunity to share Christ with them, as I know they are lost, as I once was.

I write this because religion (mans attempt to find God) has only ever failed as we can only come to God on His terms. That is through the precious sacrifice of Jesus on the cross who takes away ours and the sin of the world, and through His power living in us we are made into the image of God. So we can act/perform Like God and Love like God. Romans 10:3 says just that: For they, being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Reader if you have never given your life to Christ then there is no time like now. The bible says today is the day of salvation; and that we should seek the Lord while He maybe found.

If you are a Hindu, I am praying for you as to die without Christ in your life means you will die in your sins and be separated from God forever.

God is the most valuable/precious being. God has an enemy, called Satan. Satan wants to stop man from knowing God, that is why there are many religions, and because the heart of man is rebellious. Yet there is still only one path….

Recently Beauty (my wife) was at a church meeting where a prophet was doing ministry. The prophet came to Beauty during the meeting and asked if we have Indian neighbors. Wow! When Beauty told me later it got my attention. The prophet then went onto say that we needed to be praying for our daughter Aimee (now 6 years) as there were evil spirits trying to attack Aimee through the Hindu worship of our neighbors………
