Swami answers questions by Shri Anil on Christianity

1. Can someone believe in the Bible but not in God? What would be the implications of this belief?

Swami replied:- The aim of any religious scripture is to establish the existence of God.

2. Do Jesus and Krishna know each other?

Swami replied:- All the incarnations of God Datta know each other through the basic common God Datta, who is present in every incarnation of God.

3. Why is Satan invisible whereas God is visible?

Swami replied:- Satan was also visible to Adam and Eve. He is the embodiment of all bad qualities put together called as demonism.

4. Why did God choose the Israelites as His Own people (as per the Bible), of all the people throughout the whole world?

Swami replied:- At that time, Israelites must have been the climax devotees of God with true love to God.

5. Are any Hindu Gods mentioned in the Quran or the Bible?

Swami replied:- All the divine forms of God mentioned in all the religions have the inner common God Datta called as the Father of Heaven.

6. When and how did Jesus fulfil the law?

[According to Matthew 5:17 (“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them”). When and how did Jesus fulfil the law?]

Swami replied:- This means that whenever Jesus gave new interpretations to the scriptures of earlier prophets, He means that they are not contradicting the old scriptures, but revealing the actual essence of the true spiritual knowledge, which were misunderstood later on.

7. Is Jesus mentioned in the Vedic scriptures?

Swami replied:- The secondary scriptures in Hinduism mentioned about Jesus (Īśaputraṃ ca māṃ viddhi, kumārī garbha sambhavam, mleccha dharmasya vaktāram…).

8. Is a love marriage acceptable by the Bible?

Swami replied:- By the love before marriage, love gets exhausted later on. After marriage, if love takes place, such love exists. Love is a form of energy and this is based on the conservation of energy. You can take the example of Rama and Sita in this context.

9. What is the reason God created Eve even when Adam did not ask for a companion or assistant?

Swami replied:- God wanted to extend the human generation and hence, Eve was created even without the request of Adam. Extension of generation was not the will of Adam.
