The Growth of Eastern Religions and What it Means to Christians A century ago the average person knew little to nothing about eastern religions like Buddhism or Hinduism. But as globalization has brought the East the West together, eastern religious teachings and practices have rapidly influenced western culture and beliefs over the twentieth century. For example, in 1900 an estimated 1% of North Americans believed in Hindu or Buddhist reincarnation compared with approximately 25% of the U.S. population today who believe in reincarnation. With missionary zeal, Hindu gurus and Buddhist monks-such as the Dali Lama of Tibetan Buddhism and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of Transcendental Meditation-have traveled to the West to spread their religions. Some eastern religious beliefs and practices have been popularized in western culture through forms such as meditation, feng shui, martial arts, acupuncture, and Asian medicine. But the foundational beliefs of the eastern religious worldview remain in stark contrast to the Christian worldview.
This pamphlet helps Christians understand their own beliefs as well as those of other religions. Use this pamphlet to teach the Scriptural basis for why Christians -- 1. Believe there is a God who is personal, powerful, and has a fatherly interest in our lives. 2. Believe that there is only one physical life, and then the judgment. 3. That man can never be good enough to evolve to perfection, inner peace, or pleasing God. 4. Believe that Christ is the only way. 5. Believe that Christ is the means to inner peace, blessedness, and pleasing God.

The Story of Rose Publishing
Rose Publishing was started by a Sunday school teacher and a public school teacher in 1991. The mother-daughter team realized there were very few good Bible charts, time lines, and maps on the market for their classes and began creating their own. Other teachers started asking for the charts and the company was born.
From those few charts locally, to thousands of loyal customers worldwide today, Rose Publishing is the only Christian publisher that specializes in graphics-rich products. Rose has become known for providing quality products developed by expert authors, including professors and consultants from evangelical Christian colleges and seminaries. The management team and sales staff is made of up industry professionals with years of experience.
