Fellow Traditional Mazdayasni Zarathushtris,
Ervad Bhadha has written a very good reply to the so-called "convert" Dinshaw (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) who has "converted" to another religion and is now targeting some of us Zarathushtris with Christian-conversion propaganda.
We hope Dinshaw (his very name has the name of our religion in it - Din) now realizes the great wrong he is doing, in discarding the ancient wisdom of our forefathers, and instead going to Paul, a disciple of Christ, who decided to start converting non-Jews after Christ had passed away.
Christ, when he was alive, had said "I am sent only for the Jews". Dinshaw should read the new Testament again, if he has not done so properly the first time.
"WITHOUT JESUS AND THE NEW BIRTH, PARSEES ARE DOOMED TO ETERNAL CONDEMNATION, TO ETERNAL BURNING HELL FIRE, TO THE LOST ETERNITY FOREVER AND EVER."
That's real funny, considering that we Zoroastrians gave the Jews and the Christians the very idea of heaven and hell.
"JESUS SAYS "THAT THOSE WHO EVER CAME BEFORE ME ARE THIEVES AND ROBBERS" YOU JUDGE FOR YOURSELF ABOUT ZARATHUSTRA.(IT IS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND AT THIS STAGE, BUT IT IS WHAT JESUS SAYS)"
So this is the evil of conversion at its worst. Call another great prophet a "thief and robber" in order to do this evil deed. Disgusting. But this is how the "converters" do their dirty work - by maligning other religions and Prophets.
This is also purposely misquoting Jesus, who had always respected the previous Prophets and the Law of the Jews. The people who followed Christ were only Jews.
After the death of Christ, a new Jewish disciple Paul decided to start converting non-Jews to the sect, and also decided they need not follow the Law of the Jews. So it was not Christ who created Christianity, it was Paul a disciple.

I am perfectly aware of your email contents. Now let me ask you a question, from where did you got your identity? Your birth; name; and parents?
Secondly, how can you convince me of your knowledge of Jesus and God when you are not even close to familiarity of your own religious identity, your own birth religion & above all Asho Zarathustra and His divine messages?
Lets start educating yourself first on your own identity and then learn more about other religions and Lord Jesus. For your information Avesta scriptures were in existence much much before the Bible was practiced by the Christians so all of your comparisons are worthless.
This very fact also proves that Lord Jesus came thousands of years after Asho Zarathustra. Dinshaw, I think you need a really check on your beliefs and religious education. With your total ignorance of Zarathustri religion & Christianity, I would like to lay the topic of this email to rest until your awareness of the above queries.
Hope someday, somewhere, somebody will make you realize that you have to respect and follow your own religion for salvation instead of looking for the Best One as defined by your human preference in the wilderness of man-made philosophy, knowledge and spiritual inclinations. Look at your own Girbaan & forehead to search your identity. God Bless You.
