The Concept of God

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013 in Ask BRS | Comments Off on The Concept of God

Greetings, I am a lifelong Orthodox Christian and have recently been invited to ISKCON temple in Detroit, and have been attending and studying. Am struggling with reconciling the concept of God The Father (YHWH) and Jesus Christ with something that appears so foreign, so different. Is Krishna/Vishnu the same as YHWH/Jehovah/God the Father? Did God perhaps reveal Himself in 2 totally different manifestations in different times and cultures, one to India and one to the Hebrews? And if so then is Brahma somehow the same as Jesus?

As you know, we believe in one God The Father, who created everything by His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, the Word of God (the Logos) made flesh, who died and rose again for the sin debt and salvation/redemption of the whole world.

Thank you,

Andrew Kevorkian

In some cases, we can see the early abnormal growth that can cause miscarriage and/or birth of a baby who is physically or mentally handicapped. This examination can usually be done in 1-2 months of age womb. If we find abnormal embryo like this, can we suggest to do an abortion?
