What are the main points of disagreement?
Yes, that has God at it's centre.
For one thing, the Hindu scriptures don't mention Jesus at all.
Let's say you're correct. So what?
You asked for the main points of disagreement. They disagree on the importance of Jesus. That's what.
says the Teacher.
Everything is meaningless.”
What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises
The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again
All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.
11 No one remembers the former generations,
and even those yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow them.
With much wisdom comes much sorrow;
the more knowledge, the more grief.
I miss the King James. "Meaningless" is just not an acceptable substitute for "vanity", and nobody is chasing after wind in these modern flattenings. There have to be people chasing after wind, in my Bible. Also the voice of the turtle. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/1611_Song-of-Solomon-2-12/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Voice_of_the_Turtle_(album)
Why don't they?
If they disagree, they can't both be right. Both can't be reality. One or the other or both must be myth.
But, then again
they mostly predate Jesus
So does the Old Testament but Christians claim it's stuffed to the rafters with references to Jesus.
How is not agreeing on the importance of Jesus, a disagreement between scriptures.
Be more specific. Use scriptures.
How is not agreeing a disagreement? Seriously?
Here is the question again: How is not agreeing on the importance of Jesus, a disagreement between scriptures?
That is the question. Can you answer it?
It's a ridiculous question. A disagreement is a disagreement. Please explain what you don't understand about that.
It's not a ridiculous question especially as it is all coming from you.
I don't comprehend what you mean by disagreement on the importance of Jesus.
Can you elaborate? Or is this going to keep going back and forth?
You make claims. Back them up.
You asked, "How is not agreeing on the importance of Jesus, a disagreement between scriptures?"
I'm asking, How is a disagreement not a disagreement?
You haven't even disputed the claim that the Hindu scriptures don't mention Jesus. Feel free to quote Hindu scriptures that do. Feel free to show that the Hindu scriptures consider Jesus as important as the Christian scriptures do.
What do mean by importance?
The NT is specifically about Yashua, which makes him important in the Bible.
Other scriptures focus on other divine beings and not Yashua. Where exactly is the disagreemen?
Will you agree that Jesus is the central figure in the New Testament of the bible? That makes him fairly important, I'd say. Yet when we look at Hindu scriptures, there's not a single mention of Jesus. That seems to indicate to me that Jesus isn't at all important to Hinduism.
So, if Hinduism and Christianity are both concerned with the One Big God, like you say they are, and Christianity says Jesus is the Son of God (and part of the Holy Trinity that is God), then why is there no mention at all of this vitally relevant and important personage in your favorite Hindu scriptures?
I hope you will explain.
