VEDIC DHARMA AND THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION
The Mistake of Christianity and Islam

Christianity and Islam both claim to represent the true religion of humanity, and therefore must be examined in this context. Of course there are individuals, if not entire groups within each religion who are open-minded and accept that other religions, including non-Biblical traditions like Hinduism and Buddhism are products of a higher truth. Such people may be ashamed of the conversion efforts of their coreligionists.

These minority views, which are laudable and closer to a real universal religion, are not the object of this discussion but the majority views and actions of these religions, which remain in force as their primary presentation in the world. In addition it is not the intention here to produce an in depth discussion of the two religions. It is mainly their contentions to represent the true religion of humanity, and their corresponding efforts to convert others that is our concern, not their other aspects or relevance on other levels.

While there may be much of value in these religions, there is much of the universal religion that they do not include and their formulation tends to be exclusive, limited, time-bound and anthropocentric. Christianity, as how the great majority of its followers and its leaders formulate it, claims that it is the revelation of the only Son of God, Jesus, and therefore that it is true and universal for all human beings. However there is nothing universal about one figure or one Son of God.
