No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ” (Ephesians 4:31-32).

Verses like Ephesians 4: 31-32, which insist that people be more forgiving, were not emphasised when the Reverend was preaching to the town. The townsfolk were very religious, so the Reverend easily persuaded them to believe that Drummond was an evil man, without any real knowledge about Drummond.
Hinduism is more open minded as it embraces other beliefs and teaches that all religions have one goal, regardless of the path in life you may take. As for Christianity the belief is there is only one God. But what brings these two religions together is that even though they portray very different people from completely different races, in different periods and in various religions, it all comes down to the same knowledge that is based on revelation. In both Hinduism and Christianity, they each have their known individual founders as they achieved the highest state of superconscious. In the Book of Mathew and The Bhagavad Gita they experienced realistic situations with sin and
