Description

Arabic-tinted Bengali. Argument: Theosophist Hinduism believe that all religions are paths to the same heaven (This author may have been debating Brahmo reform Hindus). Christians and Muslims disagree: they believe that only a specific religious path will get them to heaven. For Islam, complying with the prohibitions and the rituals of the Qur'an with the recommended good works will get the Believers to Heaven. Christianity is different: good works alone cannot grant salvation. Christianity looks at the hearts of individuals. They may not have committed physical adultery but if they look lustfully at a woman they spiritually do commit fornication in their hearts, however many good deeds they do. Muhammad committed sins and thus cannot intercede with God for an individual. Ony Jesus who died on the cross to cancel the sins of humanity, can admit us to heaven on the Day of Judgement.
