Hinduism, Budism, Crestinism, Iudaism si Islamism: cinci din cele mai raspandite religii din lume. In ultimele milenii aceste grupuri religioase au modelat cursul istoriei si au avut o influenta puternica asupra evolutiei rasei umane. Print conflicte nenumarate, cuceriri, misiuni in strainatate si simplu WOM, aceste religii s-au raspandit in lume si au modelat pentru totdeauna uriase regiuni geografice in calea lor.

spread around the world

Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are five of the biggest religions in the world. Over the last few thousand years, these religious groups have shaped the course of history and had a profound influence on the trajectory of the human race. Through countless conflicts, conquests, missions abroad, and simple word of mouth, these religions spread around the globe and forever molded the huge geographic regions in their paths.

Ravi Zacharias – Jesus among other gods

I thought I would repost this video ‘Jesus among other gods’ in light of today’s other post ‘How Shinto and Buddhist priests view religion in Japan‘. Ravi Zacharias explains how showing Jesus as the exclusive Savior who forgives our sin makes all the difference when presenting the Gospel to people of other religions.

English: Ravi Zacharias signing books at the F...

In his most important work to date, apologetics scholar and popular speaker Ravi Zacharias shows how the blueprint for life and death itself is found in a true understanding of Jesus. With a simple yet penetrating style, Zacharias uses rich illustrations to celebrate the power of Jesus Christ to transform lives.Jesus Among Other Gods contrasts the truth of Jesus with founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, strengthening believers and compelling them to share their faith with our post-modern world.(Editor’s review) Click here for an Encapsulated view of this book which is considered one of the best Christian apologetics books.

Jesus among other gods’ .

Ravi Zacharias: Jesus’s exclusivity is implicit in this claim. We will look at half a dozen questions Jesus answers to those who present these questions to him. No other claimant to divine or prophetic status would have ever answered those questions that way. there is a uniqueness, a marvelous uniqueness and so in this opening session we will be looking at one of those questions that was posed to Him that I have entitled: The anatomy of faith and the quest for reason.

There are six parts to this video. (Length 1 hour 22 min.) Pass the video to all your friends and make the time to watch it. Not only is it informative (biblically, philosophically and rationally) but it is also creatively edited with footage, and inspirational and faith building.

Ravi Zacharias – Four Gardens (thoughts on the Resurrection) from India

Excerpt from Jesus among other Gods via Ravi Zacharias Media:

Ravi Zacharias discusses creation through four components-

  1. There is a Creator
  2. There is purpose
  3. We are not alone
  4. We are moral entities
  • The first is the Garden of the Word (John 1:1)
  • Second is garden of context („It is written”- echoes throughout the Bible) and is the context by which we determine what is right and wrong
  • Third is the garden of contest (Garden of Ghetsemane- single most magnificent work of Christ prior to the Resurrection-by understanding the work of the cross fully 1 Cor 2:2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you, except Jesus Christ and him crucified). Jesus did not die a martyr’s death for some worthy cause, nor did He die like a lamb going to the slaughter so that those who stood for what He stood for would be galavanized…When He went to the cross, He went to provide a way, so that the very ones who crucified Him, that’s you and I, might have a way provided for our forgiveness. One of the most precious truths emerges here, in the Garden of Ghetsemane-the reality of forgiveness. Think about it, no matter what your life, what your past was, we know one who knows us and is willing to say to us, „You are forgiven!”
  • The garden of Conquest – John 20:11-16,18 describes the Resurrection of Jesus. Muhammad was laid to rest, there are questions about pantheistic gods  that they never existed. Buddha never talked about God.  Yet  in Jesus, here is more than a gardener (John 20:15), here is the Lord who rose from the dead and gives to you and to me eternal life.

(‘Radical’ author) David Platt on Rob Bell and the church – „Intellectual universalism is dangerous” but „functional universalism is worse.”

Dr. David Platt in India.

(source of quote in title here)

For those at Brook Hills (or beyond) who may not be familiar with recent debate concerning Rob Bell and universalism, there is much discussion at present among professing Christians concerning whether or not those without Christ will really experience eternal damnation when they die. I offer some thoughts here from India. Yes, let’s fight universalism with our words. But let’s also fight universalism with our lives.

David Platt on his journey through India (March 18 update)

Overwhelming lostness. These are the only words that come to my mind when I consider what we witnessed at the Ganges River. According to Hinduism, the Ganges is the most sacred of all rivers. The “holiest” cities of Hinduism rest along its banks. Every year, scores of Hindus travel to the Ganges to wash themselves in its water. By simply washing in the Ganges, they believe that they can be cleansed of all evil and receive passage into heaven. Last year, in one month alone, during the festival of Kumbha Mela, over 50 million Hindus traveled near to the place where I am standing in this video below to bathe in the Ganges. Ironically, this river is considered by others to be one of the dirtiest rivers of the world. A recent article in The Economist called the Ganges River a “brown soup of excrement and industrial effluents.”

All of this to say…it was overwhelming to come to this site and to see masses of people—from all over India and around the world—flocking to filthy water that they hope will cleanse them from all their sin and sickness. As I looked across the river, I was gripped by the grace of Christ, whose blood alone can wash away sin, and I was overwhelmed by the need of those whose minds have been so blinded from seeing the salvation that only comes from Him.

We were not able to stay at the Ganges long, for we were on the way to catch a plane to another city. We have now arrived at this other city in eastern India, and we are about to go into a very poor, rural here to gather together with about 400-500 villagers. As you go to bed this evening, we will be going out to preach the gospel in this village. Amidst overwhelming lostness, please pray that God will show His power in the gospel by cleansing people of all their sin through the blood of Christ today.

“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” 2 Corinthians 4:4-5
