Some of the numerous similarities between Christianity and Zoroastrianism include:
Christianity worships the Abrahamic God; Zoroastrianism worships Ahura Mazda.
In each case, God or Ahura Mazda created the world.
- Holy Spirit
Ahuramazda has a Holy Spirit that sometimes seems to be him and at other times seems to be independent. The Holy Spirit of Christianity has the same characteristics.
Christianity has Jesus who was born of a virgin and will return at the end of time to defeat evil and establish his kingdom; Zoroastrianism says that the Saoshyant or saviour will be born of a virgin and will lead humanity in the last battle against evil.
- The devil
The Christian Satan parallels the Zoroastrian Ahriman or Angra Mainyu.
Christianity has seven archangels; Zoroastrianism has seven Amesha Spenta.
- Immortality of soul and life after death.
- Heaven as a place of reward for the righteous, and hell as a place of punishment
- Resurrection at the end of the world, when the dead revive and the new world will have a fresh life and new beginning.
- The last judgement
- white clothing for clergy members in church in both religions

Hinduism is a polytheistic religion. Christianity has one God in the form of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Both believe that God sends representatives… to Earth. Both believe in a supreme God. Both believe that God is present in blessed food. Both have a commandment not to kill. Both believe that loving God is your first duty in life. More Similarities: Both believe that a god exists.They believe that stuff is here for a reason.They believe that science will eventually prove them more correct.They are both religions.Both can believe in god incarnate. (Hinduism is such a diverse religion that making comparisons between it and another religion is really hard as some Hindus believe the exact opposite of what others do.)Both Hindus and Christians believe life is sacred and that material things are not important.They are both religions Differences: The Basic Belief in the Vedas The Vedas are the holy books of the Hindu faith. They are accepted as correct. This parallels the Christian belief in the absolute correctness of the BibleThe Existence of an Enduring Soul Both religions accept that there is an enduring portion of the human existence that transcends corporeal existenceReincarnation based on Karmic Burden Hinduism believes in a succession of lives in which the soul learns and progresses towards perfection (See below). Christians believe in one existence as a physical being and a continued post death existence in a Heaven or Hell (See below)Belief in One or More of a Pantheon of Gods Hindus have a pantheon of gods that are never the less ultimately one god. The worshipper can chose one or many of these aspects to worship. Christians believe in a three fold god that is ultimately one God. The rules for which one to worship are confusingGoal of Existence The goal of existence to a Hindu is to escape the ongoing cycle of birth an death and joining into the godhead as a drop of water in an ocean or eternal being in god's presence (it varies with sects). Christians have an after death goal of attaining an eternal reward in Heaven and avoiding eternal punishment in Hell. Although Hinduism is thousands of years older than Christianity, the main similarities between the two religions is that Hinduism was the first of the two to teach about 1) monotheism [belief in one Creator God, called "Vishnu" in Sanskrit] and 2) the Hindu version of what Christians call "The Golden Rule." Although in many respects very different religions, there are a few similarities. Both religions teach that good deeds in this life will pay off in the next. However in Hinduism you are repaid by being reincarnated as something better than you already are, whereas in Christianity you rest in heaven forever. In Christianity, God is a Trinity: The Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit. In Hinduism, God is a Trimurti: Brahma, Vishnu, & Shiva.
Catholics are Christians. However, not all Christians are Catholics.
There aren't any similarities as Hindus are cremated, while many Christians are buried. They only time when Hindus are cremated if the dead person is a child or a sage. Anyway…, the prayers, the people who conduct the funeral are also different.
Similarities between Islam and Christianity include both religions believing in one creator, that is God. Both also believe in angels and demons. A difference between the 2 re…ligions is how they view Jesus. Christians believe Jesus to be the son of God, in the Islamic religion Jesus is a prophet.
You could say that there are some similarities between the two but that would really be comparing jet engines to abstract thought as the two have no correlation at all (one is… a game and one is a religion) BUT!! Parts of the story in the game deal with deities and what could be described as a prophet or living god. It is a very detailed and well crafted world that emulates a lot of things in real life to make the game world seem more real. Examples include: Religion, emotional drama, currency, class systems of a social order, books (yes hundreds of books you can pick up and read) Prejudice, ect. I do not believe that there will be a church of morrowind any time soon but the game was designed to be lived in, complete with it's own history and lore.
Similarities between Zoroastrianism and the Monotheisms: Belief in a Beneficent Supreme God Belief in Heaven and Hell (except Judaism) Belief in the Devil or the …Divine Opposer Belief in Angels Belief in the final judgement and resurrection (more believed in the apocalyptic believers). Belief in helping others and doing what is right
Actually there is not a lot of similarity except for the feeling that being "good" is better for the followers than being "bad". Examples and comparisons: Means of salvation…: Buddhism: To contemplate the truth of each moment, allowing practitioner to see the Four Noble Truths of life.Christianity: Salvation through faith, and a relationship with Jesus Christ and daily repentance of sins. Holy days/Day of Worship: Buddhism: No one day is deemed holier then another. Worshipping is merely a cultural practice and has a socializing aspect.Christianity: Many special days, Sunday in general and Christmas, Easter, New Year, Pentecost, Saints' Feast Days Uniqueness of Belief: Buddhism: Buddhism is a Dharmic religion withs no contradiction in following more than one religion.Christianity: Judaism is a true religion, but with incomplete revelation and Islam is a false religion. All other religions are false Religious Law: Buddhism: There is no religious rules. The Dharma, however, describes nature or reality. For example, if there is an effect, there is a cause. .Christianity: The 10 Commandments are a base but following the whole Bible (except got the micromanagement of the OT laws) is advocated. Belief in a deity: Buddhism: Most believe in revering enlightened beings. No belief in a Supreme Creator. Zen Buddhists don't believe in deities.Christianity: A belief in the Trinity of God - The Father (God) - The Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit. Regular Practices: Buddhism: Regularly visit temple to socialize and make offerings to the Buddha and to develop the mind and apprecuiate the need for proper behaviour and attitude.Christianity: Regularly church attendance (especially on Sundays) for Worship. Doing good works and spreading the wordis encouraged. Clergy: Buddhism: No priestly hierarchy in BuddhismChristianity: Priests, monks, ministers, pastors, bishops, Elders, Deacons, Youth Ministers, Sunday School Teachers ave a special position in the community.. God's role in salvation: Buddhism: Each person is his own refuge.Christianity: Ultimate judgment by God. Human Nature: Buddhism: The internal Buddha nature is good and leads ultimately towards enlightenment.Christianity: The base of human nature is "original sin" inherited from Adam. It exhibits itself as a tendency towards evil. Answer There are too many differences to list. Some of the major ones are: View of a creator: Christians believe undoubtedly that there is one god, who created everything and everyone. In Buddhism, it is not required to believe in any single or multiple god(s). It is possible to be Agnostic/Atheist and Buddhist. The idea of a creator is really irrelevant to Buddhist teachings.View of an afterlife: Christians believe that after you die, you will either be sent to Heaven or Hell (a possible state of purgatory is also a widely held belief among some Christians). If you live a good life in accordance with Christian teachings, you will be rewarded by spending eternity in the presence of God (aka Heaven). If you do not, you will have to spend your eternity in Hell. Buddhists, on the other hand, view life in a completely different way. They believe in reincarnation, which means that every living thing goes through a constant cycle of birth, life, death, and repeat.Goal of life: A Christian's main objective in life is to adhere to God's will, thus allowing him or her to gain entrance into Heaven. A buddhist's main objective in life, however, is to reach enlightenment. This means that through Buddhist practices and meditation, you have found the greatest truth or truths of the universe, allowing you to break the cycle of life and death, ultimately leading to release from the suffering of this world.How you are judged: Christians believe that God is the sole judge of our actions. He observes our lives, and based on how we live, decides our eternal fate. In the Buddhist faith, however, there isn't an overseeing figure to make these judgements. Buddhists believe in the law of Karma. This is a universal system of reward and punishment that is unbiased and unforgiving. All of your actions will have consequences. If you live a bad or evil life, you will be punished for it in one of your future lives. If you live a good life, you will reap the benefits because good things will happen to you. Answer These are just a few of the major differences between Christianity and Buddhism. Buddhism is founded on the teachings of Buddha who did not subscribe to an immortal soul or supreme deity ( God ). Christianity is founded on the belief of Jesus Christ as the son of God who was crucified and died to pay for the sins of man then resurrected from the dead. Those who believe this in their heart and confess it to others can call themselves Christians. Answer There are ancient Tibetan scrolls such as "The life of St. Issa," in which the life of someone called Jesus is recorded. Supposedly Jesus spent his educational years from the age of approximately thirteen to the age of twenty-five studying in India and Tibet. He found himself into problems when he challenged the Hindu Brahmanical leaders and their oppressive class system. It is my opinion from my extensive research into religious theologies that the teachings of Jesus were those, which he learnt from his Buddhists teachers. These teachings later clashed with the laws of Moses in Jerusalem and he paid the ultimate price of crucifixion. Answer:Buddhism predates Christianity by 500 years and may have influenced the thinking that eventually resulted in Christanity.Christianity is predicated on the need of a deity or Jesus to step in and absolve you of sin for you to gain heaven or conversely send you to eternal damnation. Buddhism sees the attainment of enlightenment as the product of personal endeavor, no deity is involved or required.Christianity is based on the concept of one person one lifetime, Buddhism allows for numerous (potentially countless) lifetimes of progress towards enlightenment.Chsitianity is based on a dichotomy between good and evil. Buddhism sees some actions as being more satisfying than others in the long run.Christianity offers a list of does and don't for the proper conduct of ones life (10 Commandments, Golden Rule, etc.). In Buddhism the Eightfold Path is a list of general suggestions for a more satisfactory life. Answer: The fundamental difference is that Christianity believes in GOD as creater where Buddhist don't.
yes there are a few similarities between Islam and a christian wedding. first, in both the weddings the bride and the groom are told abt their respective promises of marriag…e. second, in both the weddings the bride and the groom are asked for their consent or agreement for the marriage. third, in both even if one of them(bride or groom) says "no" then the marriage is dismissed. well, both the religion are very much related to each other since both the relogions believe in the same god. by Raazia Bilgrami
There are very few symbols in common between Jews and Christians. The only symbol that they truly share is the "two stone tablets" which are representative of the Ten Commandm…ents and give a guiding purpose and direction to the faiths. However, Christian symbols like the Cross, Rosaries, Icons, and Eucharist Cups have no relevance in Judaism and conversely the Star of David, Tefillin and Tallitot (Phylacteries and Shawls), the Torah, the Menorah (Candelabra), and the Ner Tamid (Eternal Light), have no meaning to Christians.
What are the dissimilarities between the religions Hinduism Buddhism Judaism Islam Christianity and Zoroastrianism?
they believe in different God but God is one
They are simialar because........... okay IDK ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Christ Is the Way, "Tao" means "The Way."
Some of the many similarities are: There is only One True God We are not to worship any other gods Many Old Testament prophets were from God Jesus was from God It appeared …to all that Jesus died on the cross God gave the Torah, the prophets, and Gospel We are to obey God's words We should surrender/sacrifice ourselves to God Jesus will return God will resurrect all for judgment. Believers who die will go to heaven and live forever Disbelievers will go to hell to be punished forever It is important to pray to God We should help the poor (at least the Muslim poor) Christians, Jews, and Muslims should not be killed for their I found this answer from a Muslim website, is not from me, but hope that helps.
As I understand it, Agnostics believe if there is a God there is not sufficient evidence for his existence or he is unknowable, while the Christian believes that God's existen…ce is certainly knowable. The "if" of agnosticism means that they are open to the possibility of God and so basically they are both searching for God. The similarities between the two lead to the ultimate search for meaning and the answers for the reason for our existence.
christ is real not made up like your other false gods Remember Buddhism is a philosophy not a real religion. There was a real person called budda and was smart and tought peo…ple karma.
They both believe we are in a Spiritual Battle between the Powers of Good and Evil.
What are some of the similarities and differences between Jewish Hassids radical Islamists and fundamental Christians?
Really the only similarity is that all three of these groups are made of religious individuals who hold strongly to the tenets of their faith. Beyond that, there are serio…us and fundamental differences. Probably the most far-reaching is the way that each group interacts with politics. Jewish Hassids are apolitical, often not advocating or supplying political candidates, although there are exceptions in Israel. Christian Fundamentalists tend to support candidates and conduct political advocacy, but within a pre-existing party or political structure. Islamists actively seek political power and have their own political parties and paramilitaries to take and maintain power.
Answer 1 Probably the clearest distinction is that the Saoshyant, the Zoroastrian equivalent of the End-Times Messiah, has not yet come, nor is Zoroaster himself usually cons…idered such a person. The Saoshyant is also a superhuman or person with capabilities beyond those of man (like Achilles in the Greek tradition), but is not himself a divinity. By contrast Jesus Christ, the central personage in Christianity, has already come and is expected to return. Jesus also is supposed to be an actual presence of the divinity. Another clear distinction is that Christianity is a monotheistic religion whereas Zoroastrianism is a monolatrous henotheistic faith. Angra Mainyu, also called Ahriman, is the Zoroastrian equivalent to the Devil and has enough power to create (usually used for evil) and to challenge (although not defeat) the primary god Ahura Mazda, also called Ormuzd. Conversely, in Christianity, Lucifer or Satan is an angel who rebelled against God lacks any serious creative powers and can only perform his malice with God's direct permission.
