Madhudvisa and Sean,,
One can have a direct relationship with God. A church is really the people, so, since people are humans, there will be unfortunately be imperfections and sin.
I follow Jesus, the only perfect human who ever lived. Even if people in whatever church I am part of sin (and yes, they should be held accountable for their sins), my personal relationship with God and Jesus, His son, remains the same. Pray unceasingly.
By the way, Srila Prabhubata was also human.

Dearest Rahda, I pray that your anger subsides and that you learn not to judge. Blessings, Mary

Susie Jane, Yes, I saw that with a friend of mine who was a Jehovah witness and he had to hide his time with me (a Christian) or he would have been excommunicated and shunned by his church. I see that as WRONG! The same for any church who exercises this kind of control. Mary

Susie Jane, See how it is “inside”? Very sad.

Susie Jane, Sorry I just noticed your reply. My son is 21 now and has been involved in Hare Krishna for a couple of years. He was introduced in his first year of college, where he was into (worse things) drugs, illicit sex (he tells me), etc. I also have been reading the Bagavad Gita. He has traveled all over the U.S. and one to India (where he was very sick – from food or something). There is a little contact as I pay for his cell phone access, last visit was in May this year. If he were a Catholic Monk, I would be fine with it, knowing where he was and being able to visit, etc. It bothers me that he may be encouraging another young person to pain their family as we have been in pain. I want him to find God, but am very uncomfortable with Krshna and this method for searching. I understand that children leave, but there is a difference in leaving and what this religion is.

Louis Byron, Please speak only for yourself, not all of us westerners. Not all westerners have forsaken spirituality or done many of the other things you mention, so please do not lump us all together. While we may be human, and consequently, sinners, many are doing the best we can and doing much daily spiritually. Jesus Christ died for everyone’s sins, so while we are not perfect, you may only speak for yourself. Mary

Danny, When a religion takes a person completely away from their family, that is either brainwashing or just plain wrong! In the Bible, one of the commandments says to honor your Father and Mother, which separating from is not honoring when they are just following God on another path. A Krshna follower on here indicates that he/she is also separated from parents and that is JUST PLAIN WRONG.

Thank you for your reply.
I have visited the local temple a few times and am reading the Bhagavid Gita. Apparently, you and I disagree on “service”. My Bible tells me that each individual is responsible for their own beliefs, not to be liberated by someone else. Jesus died for everyone’s sins. Through him, I am saved.
I remain a steadfast disciple of Jesus Christ and I do not require Krishna consciousness, as I will go to Heaven, because I believe in and worship God and Jesus Christ.
Blessings, Mary Fletcher

Well, we hear from our Hare Krishna monk son, but it’s usually brief, no visits, and generally preaching about how Americans are selfish and Christians don’t worship God enough (only 1 time per week). I believe this is brainwashing.

Now, my son the Hare Krishna monk is gone to India and we will not see him on his 21st birthday tomorrow, probably not even hear from him. It’s so sad for a child to be conditioned to completely disconnect from his family. He indicates that we will hear from him, but we have not and he left a month ago. Of course, other parents have that same difficulty for different reasons, but I do wonder.

Well, It’s very difficult for parents who miss their now Hare Krishna monk who travels around and is mostly out of touch with his family, giving up everything for the temple. And, if we do see him, we cannot eat together easily, as he is critical of anything we eat. It hurts. Somehow, I wouldn’t think (my) God would want a family to be so disjointed, just because I am a Christian (protestant) and our son is a Hare Krishna Monk.

No one here has been willing to share the Specific Veda scriptures saying tat (years later) there would be a hoax about the moon. I have a Bagavad Gita, so tell us verse that you see this. Or I will ask my Hare Krishna monk son, if he knows.

And that proves what?

Please tell verse in Vedic scriptures.

Stupidity to a whole new level – I agree! The real scriptures (in the Bible) don’t mention a moon landing being a hoax. I would question how the Vedic scriptures (written before the Bible, even) would know about something to happen in the future being a hoax. You all make me laugh (in your consciousness malarky)

Why would Hare Krishna’s be “de-educating” their people except to make them all not trust the rest of the world – to make Americans look stupid, like idiots! Unbelievable! I pray that God will set this straight, so you will come back to reality and release others.
