Conversion Business Booming!

Why India?

“As Christians, we feel compelled to act…

Until the last generation, India was a forgotten nation on the far side of the world. Today it has leaped into the foreground as one of the most important players in world events.

  • India will soon surpass China as the world’s most populous nation. One of every six people on earth lives in India.
  • A nuclear standoff makes the border between India and Pakistan one of the most dangerous places in today’s world.
  • Poverty in India’s slums and rural villages is among the worst in the world. As Christians, we cannot ignore these needs.
  • India contains one fourth (412 million) of the 1.6 billion people on earth who never heard the Gospel. “

Astounded! These are not my words, nor did I draft them! These are the ‘sermons’ from a US based Christian Missionary that is actively pursuing to ‘take care’ of India! Read this link and see what are the current forces that are trying to change the contours of Bharat that we call India! The tsunamis of Christianities and Islam have already gripped us, but we have not been able to diagnose the malaise! Robert Frost said: “Freedom lies in being bold”. The ‘converters’ are feeling too bold, but ‘convertees’ need to hear this sage voice!

    I followed the link given in this article & was amazed at the good work christians are doing in India. This is inspite of being torched alive. Eleven churches were set ablaze in Orissa yesterday. Only true love for fellow human beings can bring about such good work without retaliation.Why don’t Indians reach out to the poor & suffering people in the same manner…..with the Word of God in one hand & bowl of cereal in another??????????.India not only needs economic development, but also spiritual awakening. Only then will we have visionaries like Gandhi.Instead of crying ‘wolf’, why don’t the critics do some good work? Instead of forcefull reconversion or taking away their privileges ,why don’t they provide for their physical or spiritual needs? Christianity is not a western religion. The west adopted it long after Indians! Yet they are known as Christian nation whereas India is still known as a Hindu nation. What is your real worry??
