Interesting, 'The way of the world', those who believe in aliens and UFO's? And those who accuse others out of ignorance.

The church leaders of Jesus day knew the Bible, as it was, verse by verse and line by line, and were there to remind the people of God's word. There is a principle in the Christian church today that for the sacriments to be valid they only need to be done correctly and the believer receives the benefit. The character of the one who preforms the rite is irrevelant he could be a scoundrel but if it is done correctly it doesn't matter, the ritual is between the believer and God. The one who preforms the rite is only a vehicle for the blessing. Here you are quoting the Bible verse by verse, line by line, accusing everyone of falling short and condeming them based on scripture. How are you any different than the church leaders of Jesus day? They also quoted the word of God.

At the time of Krishna almost all of the religious Hindu scriptures already existed. He just repeated a few things and re-established faith in his own Bhakti(devotion.)

If you try to fathom character of Krishna by logic you will be frustrated. By loving devotion God would reveal everything--in short, arguments, debates and like will not help you much on path of devotion. If you want to be a logician, philosopher and scientist you have to use logic but for what?

Isn't bliss and joy the ultimate goal of each and everyone of us?

Yes, so why not spend our time in loving devotion. smiling face
