I'm a Hindu by birth but I follow Christianity...What should I do to save my husband?
My husband is not a religious person. He is a Hindu too. Whenever we fight, the only topic he brings about is my faith in Jesus. He doesn't understand the importance of Bible.
A difference in religion represents a difference in thinking. You cannot force another person to think differently; you can only educate them, if they are open to the knowledge. I would never force any religion, be it Hinduism or Christianity, on a person that I love, because that would be dishonoring his right to choose his own path in life. Respect his individuality and his difference in opinion, and perhaps the two of you can find eventual common ground.
You cannot save him. only Jesus Christ. Just continue spreading the good news to him. One day the Holy spirit might touch his heart. God bless you!
I'm afraid you cannot do anything. Your husband is going to have to make up his own mind (if he has not done that quite firmly already).
I know that if I were in his shoes, I wouldn't want the pressure. And I'd view the term "being saved" as somewhat of a put-down.
If this is truly a divisive issue and a threat to your marriage, you need to talk about it - but as equals, perhaps with the assistance of a therapist or another neutral party you can both trust.
As a Christian you have the power of the witness of the Holy Spirit in you. That is the power that can transform someones life. Continue to abide in Jesus Christ and pray for the drawing of the Holy Spirit to soften your husband's heart. What validates the witness of the Holy Spirit in you is how you live your life as a shining light in this world, and in your home. You cannot save your husband, only Jesus can do that, but you can surely be a witness to him by who you are in Jesus Christ. Don't give up, there is still hope.
There is only one God, so I think your husband will be saved.
I sincerely believe in the same. Thank u.
Respectfully, I don't think there is only one God. God and Allah, for example are not the same. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life" Allah does not have the Son (Christ). Budha is not God either, He has no Son called Jesus.
We all pray to the same God, although each religion has its own specific beliefs. We are not polytheistic. Therefore, there is only one God-no one has to believe Jesus is the son of God, but there is only one God and therefore her husband is saved.
I have read somewhere that buffaloes will have buffalo as God (with the proportionate understanding of God!)
@BuffaloGal do you mean that God created christian people, Allah created Muslim people, 33, 000, 00, 00 Hindu Gods created Hindu people? And like the people on Earth they are separated by Religion? There is one God, just with different names.
You're assuming that it is your husband that needs saving. Did you consider the possibility that it could be the other way around?
If the faith you adhere to is TRULY fulfilling you - it will be attractive. If it doesn't - it will be repulsive. Most "religious" people are in fact not fulfilled. And for a good reason.
Following a "religion" is NOT the same as being spiritual or even having a faith in a Great Divinity no one can understand anyway. Following a religion is an INSTITUTIONAL position, where you decide to cede some of your personal responsibilities to priests or other self-appointed "representatives of God" - all too fallible and human every single last one of them.
You want a happy marriage?
Learn to accept yourself for who you are and strive to become a better, deeper person - NOT a more "religious" one. And learn to accept your husband for who he is and love him without the "condition" that he be just like you.
In short: do NOT try to change him against his will.
No one is born a Hindu, just as no one is born a Christian. You can't be born into a belief, because a belief system is something you learn about and come to accept or reject.
"For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy." - 1st Corinthians chapter 7, verse 14.
Just keep showing your husband how much you love him. There is nothing we can do to change a person's heart except pray and live by example. The example you set will eventually bring him to question his own thoughts and beliefs.
I will pray for you and your husband, Mathi Vathani. Take care and God bless you!
The notable feature of Hinduism is its tolerance to all religion. Why India became a nation of all religions such as Hinduism, Christianity, Muslim, Sikhism, Judaism, Buddhism and Jews? The Hindu kings in India welcomed all religion and gave a good treatment to all religious people. The Hindus are not against any religion. In fact they cooperate with all faiths. That's why Hindus visit the religious places of other religions. Love and respect all religion, peace will come to you. You have to show a little more tolerance . You have to give him his own space. God bless both of you.
Have YOU really grasped the importance of Bible yourself first? Did you ever try to understand Hinduism deeper before you switched over to Christianity? Are you very sure that if you remove the religious masks, you are still a better human being than your husband? With or without his mask as a Hindu, is your husband has good values and has love on you? With or without your mask of a Christian, do you have good values and do you love your husband?
Prayer and example, my Friend. Prayer works. Example works. The Bible says we can win unsaved spouses over by our example. It's unfortunate you are not yoked equally in the Spirit, but it's not too big for God.
He is a skeptic!
I was born a Hindu too, but I don't follow any religion now. I do believe in God but not religion and traditions. I think they just separate us, like you and your husband. I have read the Bible, there are so many good things to learn and I follow them, but I don't have to be a christian to follow them. I've read the Bhagvat gita, Koran. There are some things I like from them, which I follow and some things which I don't like I leave out. Not following religions gives me freedom to learn so much more.
Tell him what Jesus taught us, show him the good things the bible teaches us, and if he questions your faith, he doesn't deserve you, he doesn't have the right to tell you to give up your faith.
Besides, I think Hinduism is more of superstitions then faith, don't you think?
I believe in one God, like Saibaba said "Sabka Malik ek".
Please don't give up you faith for him, I think you are great!
If you study or follow Hinduism superficially, you find it superstitious.
Thanks a lot for ur time sir. I'll not lose hope.
He will respect your faith if you can show that you respect his.
Everybody believes in something. You must find out what he believes in and show him you understand. Then he will respect you and leave you alone.
There is a fine line between active and passive. An active religion has the duty to force beliefs down anothers throat. A passive religion keeps to itself unless being attacked. Decide which is best for you.
Maybe if your husband felt you loved him as much as you love Jesus there would be no need to argue. People don't need to be saved, they need to be loved.

Why is it assumed that Morals are dictated by Religion? Doesn't that scare you?It is mentioned a lot that Morals are dictated by Religion, and the inference (or the direct statement occasionally) is that therefore Atheists are immoral. What makes people think this? I'm curious. Has anyone...

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...
