Christian vs Hindu Spiritual Experiences

Many Christians claim that they believe in their religion and their doctrines because of spiritual experiences, and that I have not experienced the “Holy spirit” or “God”, therefore I can never be a christian and rightly guided

Many Hindus claim the same thing.  How can an objective believer and truth-seeker account for a christian experience and discount a Hindu who per-say has experienced Ganesha or Vishnu or Krishna., or something to that effect? What makes your spiritual experience true, and theirs false? Moreover should a christian himself/herself rely on their spiritual experiences?

As I mentioned in a previous post  ,  we can not rely on spiritual experiences to base our belief in a religion, but rather on logic and reasoning.

    That’s some hard truth right there and this is what makes us Muslims first i.e logic & reasoning…spiritual experiences comes later, in fact i’ve had my own fair share of spiritual experiences in the past but i never considered that as a guarantee that my faith is the true one…
