Are Christianity and Hinduism compatible?

raviAre the teachings of Jesus and Krishna compatible? The teachings of Krishna and Hinduism are often said to be extremely similar to those of Jesus Christ—is that true?

These are among the questions tackled by apologist Ravi Zacharias in an interview about Christianity and Hinduism today on the Iron Sharpens Iron program (link goes to MP3; the interview starts about 4 minutes in. See also an introduction to Ravi on the Iron Sharpens Iron website). The interview is a great exploration of the topic, discussing the differences between Christian and Hindu ideas about sin, reincarnation, the afterlife, and much else. If you’ve ever had questions about how the two religions agree and disagree on the big questions, the hour-long interview is well worth a listen.

If you want to learn more about Ravi’s apologetics ministry, be sure to check out Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, where you can learn more about what he’s doing. The Slice of Infinity daily devotional and the Just Thinking broadcast are good places to start. If the question of Hinduism in particular interests you, you might also want to take a look at Ravi’s new book, New Birth or Rebirth: Jesus Talks with Krishna.
