Jesus Vs. Other Gods

I just finished reading a wonderful book, Jesus Among Other Gods, by Ravi Zacharias.  Mr. Zacharias is one of the leading apologists for the Christian faith but began his life as a Hindu.

The author compares Christianity and what Jesus said to the other major religions, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, pantheism, New Age and Humanism.  All regions cannot be right because each one has a particular way of defining who God is and is not, which then defines its followers’ life purpose.

Christianity is the only religion based on a person that said He was the only way to God and that we can each personally know God and absolute truth.  Jesus Christ did not only teach His message, He was identical with His message because He is God.

Jesus gives His believers a standard of spiritual love to follow that is way above any other religion’s moral requirements.  And along with this high standard, Christians get Jesus Christ’s supernatural help in a close personal relationship with Him.

When Christianity is compared to other religions, Christ and His love is truly a miracle.  Jesus is available to any one, any where at any time for a miraculous life change.
