These three will not enter Pentecost Church .

One Christ, One Bible, One Jehova???
Now Muslims..!One Allah, One Quran, One Nebi....! Great unity?
Among Muslims, Shia and Sunni kill each other in all the Muslim countries.

One Allah, One Quran, One Nebi....????
They have 1,280 Religious Books, 10,000 Commentaries, more than one lakh sub-commentaries for these foundation books, innumerable presentations of one God, variety of Aacharyas, thousands of Rishies, hundreds of languages.
Still they all go to All other TEMPLES and they are peaceful and tolerant and seek unity with others by inviting them to worship with them whatever God they wish to pray for!
Hindus never quarreled amongst one another for the last five thousand years in the name of religion.
VERY PROUD TO BE A HINDU?
Yes our Hindu brethren not only do not fight among themselves but have deep respect for other religions as well. Hindus revere Christ and Mohammad like they revere their own God and saints.
Anyone can walk into any Hindu temple and offer prayers. The priest does not ask whether you are 'baptised' Hindu before accepting your offerings. He gives you all the blessings he has. Nobody who seeks God's help in a Hindu temple is turned away.
We Christians especially Catholics have a lot to learn from their tolerance and respect for other religions. We have very strict rules regarding in sharing Christ with others.
We are selfish and arrogant as we consider all other religions as inferior to ours. We want to always convert others to our religion by the so-called policy of evangelism, a misguided belief that Jesus is the ONLY way. To me Jesus is a way but not the ONLY way to God. Otherwise why did God allow other religions?
"You believe because you can see me. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe" - John 20:29
Remember Gandhi said "I like your Christ but I don't like your Christians”. There is a great truth hidden in those words of the Mahatma, who is also a way to God.
We must rise above religion to reach the one true universal God who is beyond all man-made religious politics.
