Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div)
The eschatological emphasis as it is found in Christianity and its implications for the believer help to make Christianity the unique religion that it is. As God's revelation of Himself. to mankind, Christianity preaches an eternity with God, an eternity of certainty and hope. In contrast with some of the religions developed by man's philosophical invention, it speaks with certainty of the fact, of eternal life with God; in contrast with others it offers a living hope of an existence the marks of which are individuality, purpose, and bliss. It is in the latter category that the Hindu religion stands in sharp contrast with Christianity. Hinduism hopes for little for the individual. It is this Hindu eschatology which is the study of this paper. An attempt will be made to retain objectivity, but as is usually the case when a Christian deals with ideas and concepts foreign to him, same subjectivity will, no doubt, be registered in the form of comparisons and contrasts.
