Hinduism?

Sorry I could not reply to you in time. After about 10 months I am replying.

No it's fine. However, I do need to think hard to remember what I wrote and why I wrote it.

Thanks for your reply Shri Devi.

An Omnipotent God can punish the Sinners then and there what is the need of Heaven or Hell. Since He is Omnipotent punish the Culprits then and there.

Your original point was that there was far too much information for God to recall. Since God is omniscient he knows all, and therefore it would require no difficulty.

God chooses to punish sinners after their life on earth is over. It's not like God is unable to punish them here and now, it's just that he chooses to have mercy so that some may come to him and receive forgiveness.

I will ask you one question. A child is born deaf,dumb and blind.

How can you convince him of a Hell or Heaven after his death without the vocabulary and the thelogy. I think it is almost impossible.

Blindness still allows us to speak to the child. Communication isn't necessarily verbal. God has mercy on the weak and those who are not able to distinguish right and wrong. I cannot give a definite answer because I cannot account for all the circumstances. Whatever the situation, God Almighty will do what's right.

So you have to agree that an Omnipotent God's punishment of humans can only be convinced to perfect human beings. Your language,logic and concepts will be irrelevent to our deficient child.

See above. And none of us are perfect. Your sentence contains grammatical mistakes, showing your imperfection. Several times while posting I was rude which shows my imperfection.

Does it mean that God is absent. No not at all. God is present, but that child may feel the presence of God thrugh the love of the people around him.

I don't disagree with your statement. I don't understand your position, please outline it clearly and simply, because to me it seems like you believe that the Christian God only shows his presence through Heaven and Hell which is false.

So your logicity of Hell and Heaven vanishes here. Am I right.

No? Hell is for those who have sinned and Heaven is for the forgiven... I don't see how your argument proves that they cannot exist when you use an impaired child.

For your remaining arguments my Answer is that He/She ( We call it is Bhraman who is the absolute,indescribable/infinite ) can't be logically provable. Because He is above our Inellects/intelligence/day to day limitations. The unlimited cannot be measured in terms of the limited. I do not want to argue with your goodself further. (Since the infinite cannot be proved with the finite.)

Ironically, you described Brahman as indescribable which describes him. This is a logical fallacy. The further irony is that you say that we cannot fully understand Brahman when you misunderstand the Christian God YHWH.

Bye and Wish Happiness to all.

I really hope that you continue this conversation. Why is it that you are a Hindu and how do you explain for our existence and yet the existence of evil?

Submitting....
