“She knows Christian theology, and she has a great grasp of Hindu theology.”
Until recently, the 1,000 or so Hindus serving in the US military – and their families – lacked a military confidant who understood their religion and culture.
But now Captain Pratima Dharm has been appointed as the US military’s first Hindu chaplain.
She says her position is significant not just to her military congregation, but also to the religion’s one billion global followers.
She spent two years earning a Masters in Theology and training in a Protestant seminary, when a phone call from the US Army in 2006 caught her by surprise.

“She knows Christian theology, and she has a great grasp of Hindu theology,” said Kuntimaddi Sadananda of Chinmaya Mission’s Washington center. “This means she can help everyone.”
She didn’t convert from Christianity to Hinduism, she said.
“I am a Hindu,” she said. “It’s how I was raised and in my heart of hearts, that’s who I am.”
But — and perhaps it is hard for some Western Christians to understand — she hasn’t rejected Christianity either.
“In Hinduism, the boundaries are not that strict,” she said. “It is to base your life on the Vedantic traditions, and you can be a Christian and follow the Vedantic traditions.”

The One World Religion will be a mixed up faith. A twisted and corrupt message very close to the truth.
Everyone who knows Hinduism, knows that many Hindus has high regards for “Jesus”. Many Hindus even have “Jesus” as one of their gurus, and even one of their “gods”.
But born Hindus who start to claim Jesus as the only way to Heaven, and that the rest of the “gods” and “gurus” will burn in Hell, will be badly persecuted. They have deserted the religion of their forefathers, and embraced a “foreign god”.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
At the end of the age, it will be like this for all who claim Jesus being the only gate to heaven. It was like this from the beginning.
The blood of the martyrs have always made rivers in the paganized world, who have believed in different kind of Satanic lies.
The beheaded Christians are all in Heaven. The enemies of the Word of God will all find unlimited time to regret in Hell, but from where there will be no exit.
