Hinduism: Past and Present. With an Account of Recent Hindu Reformers, and a Brief Comparison between Hinduism and Christianity

Author: J. Murray Mitchell
Publisher: Religious Tract Society
Publish Date: 1886

All that we can wish to know about the Hindu sects in here set forth by one who is a complete master of the subject. This work ought for ever to pulverize the blasphemous science of Comparative Religions. What comparison can be drawn between Jehovah and Vishnu, Christ and Siva? As well compare heaven and hell. As for the poor gospel of Buddhists, that all existence is misery, the world will get no light from it, nor does it bear as good a resemblance to Christianity as a glowworm to the sun. It is to the last degree absurd to try to set the gospel to the tune of Buddhism; these attempts at compromise do not convert the heathen falsehood. No, there can be only one faith and all others must die as it lives and conquers. Dr. Murray Mitchell writes with the authority of one who knows his subject perfectly.
