“A very dangerous word”

I had an interesting conversation with a Hindu today. It included a Stephen Colbert reference. We got to talking about Jesus.

Two ideas from him stand out from that conversation this afternoon.

1. I asked him about the caste system, and he said the caste system is not part of Hinduism. That came from the British and colonialism.

2. He said, “‘Belief’ is a very dangerous word.” It means you don't know, and you're trusting someone else.

“Belief” is certainly a powerful word.

Simon Peter told Jesus, “You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). Words of eternal life include, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you will be saved.”
