Speech


Professor Prabhu Guptara examines how being a Hindu who follows Jesus affects interactions with family and institutions. He explains that following Jesus, or “taking up your cross,” means trying to follow truth and hope in the midst of falsehood and despair – but how do people distinguish what is “the truth?”

Professor Guptara acknowledges a long list of people and groups who have respected Jesus, but instead of just seeing him through the scriptures, they viewed him through the lenses of other leaders or institutions that they hold above him. For example, Gandhi viewed him through the Gita and the Mormons view him through Joseph Smith’s writings, but in a case where Jesus’s message contradicts their holy writings, they follow their dogma over his.

Moreover, Professor Guptara believes it is crucial that people have the free will to make that choice. “The right to believe is meaningless if we don’t have the right to debate the truth or falsity, the benefit or damage of every idea, every concept, every ideology starting of course with our own,” he states.
