or the Ten Commandments in Christianity?

Rom 7:1 Now, dear brothers and sisters-you who are familiar with the law-don't you know that the law applies only to a person who is still living?
Rom 7:2 Let me illustrate. When a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. But if he dies, the laws of marriage no longer apply to her.
Rom 7:3 So while her husband is alive, she would be committing adultery if she married another man. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law and does not commit adultery when she remarries.
Rom 7:4 So this is the point: The law no longer holds you in its power, because you died to its power when you died with Christ on the cross. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, you can produce good fruit, that is, good deeds for God.
Rom 7:5 When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced sinful deeds, resulting in death.
Rom 7:6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died with Christ, and we are no longer captive to its power. Now we can really serve God, not in the old way by obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way, by the Spirit.
Rom 7:7 Well then, am I suggesting that the law of God is evil? Of course not! The law is not sinful, but it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the law had not said, "Do not covet."
Rom 7:8 But sin took advantage of this law and aroused all kinds of forbidden desires within me! If there were no law, sin would not have that power.
Rom 7:9 I felt fine when I did not understand what the law demanded. But when I learned the truth, I realized I had broken the law and was a sinner, doomed to die.
Rom 7:10 So the good law, which was supposed to show me the way of life, instead gave me the death penalty.
Rom 7:11 Sin took advantage of the law and fooled me; it took the good law and used it to make me guilty of death.
Rom 7:12 But still, the law itself is holy and right and good.
Rom 7:13 But how can that be? Did the law, which is good, cause my doom? Of course not! Sin used what was good to bring about my condemnation. So we can see how terrible sin really is. It uses God's good commandment for its own evil purposes.
Rom 7:14 The law is good, then. The trouble is not with the law but with me, because I am sold into slavery, with sin as my master.
Rom 7:15 I don't understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I don't do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate.
Rom 7:16 I know perfectly well that what I am doing is wrong, and my bad conscience shows that I agree that the law is good.
Rom 7:17 But I can't help myself, because it is sin inside me that makes me do these evil things.
Rom 7:18 I know I am rotten through and through so far as my old sinful nature is concerned. No matter which way I turn, I can't make myself do right. I want to, but I can't.
Rom 7:19 When I want to do good, I don't. And when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway.
Rom 7:20 But if I am doing what I don't want to do, I am not really the one doing it; the sin within me is doing it.
Rom 7:21 It seems to be a fact of life that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.
Rom 7:22 I love God's law with all my heart.
Rom 7:23 But there is another law at work within me that is at war with my mind. This law wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me.
Rom 7:24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin?
Rom 7:25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God's law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin

the two religions have very similar rules. Both of them should be followed.

First off I'm Christian so when it comes to religious questions I'll admit I'm biased.
But, I actually think the Ten Great observations are good rules for everyone no matter what religion. Granted, I think the Ten Commandments hits it home and should be followed by everyone, but the Observations are great morals as well.
To me, the Observations sound more like just general rules for the human race. On the other hand, the Commandments sound more like they were created by God for His people to follow.
Now, I'm not going to preach to you, but if you are trying to make a choice in religion, go for Christianity.
And that's my two cents.

For me, Hinduism makes for a more peaceful, loving and self-inquiring life. Christianity just scares people.

What makes sense to me about Hinduism is that one is not to take the diety as literal being, but the Divine attributes that each of them possess, that in turn, we possess when we understand them.

I find knowledge and peace in the attributes of Shiva and know that I AM THAT. Also with Hanuman...Servant of God. What more could I ever ask?


Why either or?
I find them both quite consistent with each other

In addition to the !0 Commandments(of the tradition of Moses) is the Beatitudes(Matt 5) of the Apostolic Tradition as central to Christian ethics

The Hindu list sounds very Christian to me (different Scriptures, of course)

Just going by the answers to this question and nothing more, it's Hinduism, hands down.

These people are like Pavlov's dogs. If they were to choose between a Christian serial rapist and a Hindu welfare worker, they'd take the christian every time.

If you think about it, being a Catholic, I believe in the basic principles of Hinduism and Christianity are what the Bible and Hindu classes teach everyday. For example to be honest, forgiveness, purity, not to steal, self control, not to murder, not to comment adultery, ect. If all the religions put aside their differences and come together as one, but not forget what they believe in and to respect others walks of life we wouldn't have war or dictator ship. Other than that people are stubbern and that's life.

Hinduism sounds good on paper but the reality of it does not make sense. Hindus pray to a rocks, animals, and the elements in nature.

Well there is more to both of those religions than just their "commandments". The very dogma of hinduism is quite different from Christianity. I don't see why you have to choose between either of those though.

If you are interested in hinduism, just know that they have a lot more scriptures than christianity, and if you are going to obey the 10 observations part of that is reading the sutras, so you will have to read and study the different sutras (sutra is sanskrit for scripture).

the assumption of multi functional (Abrahamic faiths ) and one among(Dharmic or Indian Faiths) One is unique the different one is inclusive doctrine. The 4 the thank you to salvation as consistent with Hinduism wisdom,Raj Yoga(Meditation) ,Karma Yoga(movements) and Bhakti yoga (Devotion or renounce). Christianity and Islam is provided in 4th classification of devotion and renounce to God.

Here's the one that nails it ... *especially* for those who see no apparent difference between an animal-worshiping religion and Christianity.

Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.
