The direct yet contradictory relationship between the Holy Bible of Christianity and the Vedas of Hinduism, part sixty-three.
“The next reference in the Vedas and Upanishads in our list of passages that raise questions and issues is found in the Yajur Veda,” reported Dr. D. James, President and teacher of The Lay School in Clinton, Tennessee, as he continued his presentation before The Lay School faculty on the direct yet contradictory relationship between the Holy Bible of Christianity and the Vedas of Hinduism. “Specifically, the Yajur Veda, Kanda vi. Prapathaka 2. section 3, which reads:
verily with its own deity he consumes the hot milk, for unity, for atonement. [REFERENCE: The hot milk (Soma) is consumed for atonement (for sins)?]
As the ‘REFERENCE’ note states, ‘the hot milk’ is otherwise identified in numerous places in the Vedas and Upanishads as ‘soma’ (who/which is also identified as a god in numerous places as well). The issue here is that this passage unequivocally states that the consumption of the hot milk is done for unity AND for atonement. While the passage in the Yajur Veda does not specifically state that the atonement is for sins, one must conclude that sin is what must be atoned, as sin is mentioned in a number of places in the Vedas and Upanishads; BUT, nowhere in those writings have we been able to locate a listing of sins nor a definition for sin according to the Hindus. In contrast, the Judeo-Christian Bible clearly and unmistakably states that sin is disobedience to God’s commandments.
In the Yajur Veda, Kanda vi. Prapathak 4. section 3, we read:
‘To the sky thee! To the sun thee!’ he says; verily he makes it for the gods; so many are the gods; [REFERENCE: Really? In some places the Vedas assert there are 33 gods, in some places 333 gods. But in reality, there is only ONE god, SELF! All the gods are SELF. Which means that this statement, ‘so many are the gods’ is a bald-faced lie! *****]
Now we have dealt with this idea of the multiplicity of gods before in our study of the Vedas and Upanishads; some passages assert there are but 33 gods; some passages assert there are 333 gods; in at least one passage it is asserted that there are 333 Vasus, 333 Rudras, 333 Adityas (three classes or groups of gods) and ‘she’ became the 1000th; other passages assert there are six, three, two, one and a half, and one, and that the other names mentioned in the Vedas and Upanishads for the gods or as gods are merely ‘various powers of them’. With all of this we can see how Sterling Ministries concluded in the ‘REFERENCE’ note above that ‘so many are the gods’ is nothing but a bald-faced lie!”
