The main difference in the two major spiritual traditions lies in the fundamental enunciation about the manifested universe. In the Abrahamic traditions God created the world and no creature can be like the Creator. Anyone who claimed that, as did Jesus Christ, was persecuted. In the Indian traditions on the other hand, Brahman, the Highest Reality, did not create the world but became the world. So, every creature has Brahman in him/her/it; and can strive to become one with Brahman. This major difference has many important consequences in the culture.
