Christianity & Eastern Religions

This pamphlet contains a detailed comparison of Christianity with 11 Eastern Religions, including the major types of Hinduism and Buddhism. Christianity & Eastern Religions looks at the following topics:
• Key Beliefs on God and the Purpose of Life/Salvation
• Origins, founders and other major historical figures
• Sacred Writings
• Distinctive Practices and Major Celebrations
• Denominations, and Number of Adherents
• The focus on the Dalai Lama
• Profiles of other Eastern religions, including: - Sikhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shinto, as well as beliefs and practices such as reincarnation and karma, yoga, Eastern meditation

The Growth of Eastern Religions and What it Means to Christians
A century ago the average person knew little to nothing about eastern religions like Buddhism or Hinduism. But as globalization has brought the East and West together, eastern religious teachings and practices are rapidly influencing more and more western culture and beliefs. For example, in 1900 an estimated 1% of North Americans believed in Hindu or Buddhist reincarnation compared with approximately 25% of the U.S. population who believe in reincarnation today. With missionary zeal, Hindu gurus and Buddhist monks - such as the Dali Lama of Tibetan Buddhism and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of Transcendental Meditation - have traveled to the West to spread their beliefs. Some eastern religious beliefs and practices have been popularized in western culture through meditation, feng shui, martial arts, acupuncture, and Asian medicine. But the foundational beliefs of the eastern religious worldview remain in stark contrast to the Christian worldview.

Christianity & Eastern Religions helps Christians understand their own beliefs as well as those of other religions. Use this pamphlet to teach the Scriptural basis for why Christians --
1. Believe there is a God who is personal, powerful, and has a fatherly interest in our lives
2. Believe that there is only one physical life, and then the judgment
3. Believe that man can never be good enough to evolve to perfection, inner peace, or pleasing God
4. Believe that Christ is the only way
5. Believe that Christ is the means to inner peace, blessedness, and pleasing God
