Christian dating a hindu
Here are three things we do to keep the peace and grow together. At any even given month in our interfaith marriage, we practice various configurations of Christian-Hindu worship, but always with one common denominator: we attend services remind us of the cautionary tales of mixed-faith households, and the somber reality that the likelihood of interfaith marriages failing is greater than our same-faith counterparts.
In our recent visit to the Edenton Street United Methodist Church Foundry Fellowship Class, we shared the many universal principles among Baptist and Gaudiya-Vaishnava theology.
From Mormon to Methodist, Jewish to Jehovah’s Witness, Buddhist to Lutheran, our modern day interfaith combinations are as unique as we are. A minister ordained in one of Christianity’s most conservative denominations paired with Hinduism’s most devout sects seems paradoxical at best.
But when Fred and I disclose that we are a Southern Baptist minister and a devout Gaudiya Vaishnava, our confession is met with raised eyebrows. But it may surprise you how well our Christian-Hindu marriage does work–and how beautifully your own interfaith friendships and relationships can work, too. In August, a formal liturgical United Methodist Church, attended a Catholic mass, participated in Hindu food offering rituals, and launched the worship and Church School year with our Binkley Baptist Church community.
Some general case study guidelines are available to aid in your reflection and discussion. I am a Hindu and am trying to decide whether to marry a Christian girl from the Assembly of God denomination (she converted from Hinduism 3 years ago). While my parents expect her to follow my religion after marriage, I am of the view that she can follow her Christian religion, but that she should partake in my Hindu religious activities as well.
Read it through and then decide how you would answer him.
