Christians Celebrate Christmas in India! What Christianity means to Hindus? Do they Need to Participate and Celebrate?
Now the Christians have celebrated the Christmas all across the globe in 2014. In India, not only Christians celebrate, but may Hindus also participate or celebrate the Christmas without knowing what Christianity is all about, what the Christians think about Hindus, what the Bible says about the “idol worship,” how they destroyed so many civilizations, how they are converting Hindus and making them enemies of their own religion, how the money is flowing from foreign countries, how the Hindus were mercilessly tortured in Goa, and how the Christian leaders at the National and state levels were able to trap the Hindu political leaders to be their spokespersons in the name of freedom and independence in justifying the unscrupulous conversions across the country.
Many Christians believe that any body, who does not believe in Jesus, would go t hell and he will be tormented and tortured. Jesus is the only savior and He is the only begotten Son of God the Almighty who can lead them to heaven. He would not save you from going to hell if you do not believe in him. They believe that Jesus gave them the right to deceive, convert, subjugate, conquer, and proselytize any nation or religion, by any and all possible means. They are entitled to such methods as allurement, fraud, coercion and violence in converting but they criticize Hindus even if they to talk about their atrocities of conversion. They do not even accept our right to convert.
In 1999, the Southern Baptist Mission released a pamphlet asking its 40,000 churches to head to India to convert Hindus from the darkness and embrace Christianity. The very first sentence of the pamphlet states that, "More than 900 million people are lost in the hopeless darkness of Hinduism……Pray that Hindus who celebrate the festival of lights would become aware of the darkness in their hearts that no lamp can dispel." The shepherds followed the instructions on a war footing and converted many Hindus into Christianity. This is more evident in Southern States and especially in the Andhra Pradesh are. They convert the Hindus and make them their foot soldiers to destroy Hindu deities, step on them, and also tear up the pictures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. According to unofficial statistics, as many as 30 percent of Hindus in villages have got converted.
In the name of humanitarian service, they would lie and cheat. They have no moral conscience, and no scruples, and with unlimited resources coming from European counties, with highly efficient planning and well organized administration, and with highly focused vision to destroy Hindu dharma, they have relentlessly converting Hindus to Christianity on a war footing. Swami Dayananda Saraswati equated the Southern Baptists’ fanatical aggressiveness to the declaration of war, and war is synonymous with violence. He said that, "conversion is an act of violence…aggressive religions have no God-given right to destroy ancient faiths and cultures… it is an act of violence because it hurts deeply, not only the other members of the family of the converted, but the entire community that comes to know of it. When the hurt becomes acute, it explodes into violence…humanity cannot afford to lose anymore of its existing religious traditions.”
All Christians have celebrated Christianity with more gusto, more money, and with more converts and with more digestion of Hindu traditions and customs to dupe the gullible Hindus. Many Hindus either participate or celebrate Christian festivals not knowing what Bible says, what the true history of Christianity, how many civilizations they have destroyed, what they think about Hindus who practice “Idol worship,” and how Hindus are condemned to hell.
Read about the true nature of Christianity and do not fall trap into the fallacy that all religions are same. All religions are different, Hinduism is inclusive and other two major religions – Christianity and Islam – are exclusive. It is all about “We and THEY. ” They claim that their religions are the only TRUE religions. Hinduism is the false religion. They say that Hindus are not worthy people to allow them to practice their religion. All Hindu Gods are Satans. Hindus are devil worshippers. They are heathens.
When the Christians celebrate Christmas, they are celebrating the success of rampant conversion of Hindus, success in fooling the Hindus to accept as the TRUE religion, success in manipulating the Nehruvian politicians to speak for their freedom to convert but not for Hindus, success in bypassing the government scrutiny of the use of their funds, success in preventing the anti-conversion laws, and success in condemning the “idolaters.”
We request all the HINDUS to ponder and decide whether you want to celebrate or participate in the Christmas Celebration. Whether we participate in the celebrations knowingly or unknowingly, wittingly or unwittingly, consciously or unconsciously, we are either directly or indirectly supporting their belief that Hindus are Satans, sinners, unworthy, and they need to be condemned to hell.
What Famous People said about Christianity?
Thomas Jefferson, "Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites."
"What is it the Bible teaches us? -- rapine, cruelty, and murder. What is it the Testament teaches us? -- to believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married, and the belief of this debauchery is called faith.”
A certain sense of cruelty towards oneself and others is Christian; hatred of those who think differently; the will to persecute. Hatred of mind, of pride, courage, freedom, libertinage of mind, is Christian; hatred of the sense, of the joy of the senses, of joy in general is Christian.
Mark Twain, “If Christ were here now there is one thing he would not be --- a Christian.”
According to Dr. T. R. De Souza at least from 1540 onwards, ‘All the Hindu idols disappeared because all the temples were destroyed, their sites and building materials were used erect new Christian Churches and chapels. Church council banished the Hindu priests from the Portuguese territories; practices of Hindu rites including marriage rites, were banned; Hindu orphan children were to raise as Christians; the Hindus were denied many types of employment; they were forced to assemble in Churches to listen to preaching or to the refutation of their religion’.
The Big House with 200 cells
The Inquisition Laws were passed while all the proceedings were behind the closed doors. The place where the Inquisition was conducted was known as the Big House. The screams of agony of men, women, and children could be heard in the streets, in the stillness of the night, as they were brutally interrogated, flogged, and slowly dismembered in front of their relatives. Eyelids were sliced off and extremities were amputated so carefully that a person could remain conscious, even though the only thing that remained was his torso and a head.
Three kinds of torture were practiced against the Hindus
he torture by rope consisted of the arms being tied backwards and then raised by a pulley, leaving the victim hanging for some time, and then let the victim drop down to half a foot above the floor, then rose again. These continued up and down movements dislocated the joints and made the prisoner emit horrible cries of pain.
The torture by water made the victim to lie across an iron bar, and was forced to imbibe water without stopping. The iron bar broke the vertebrae and caused horrible pains, whereas the water treatment provoked vomits and asphyxia.
The torture by fire was definitely the worst: the victim was hung above a fire, which burnt the soles of the feet, and the jailers rubbed bacon and other combustible materials on the burning feet. The feet were burnt until the victim confessed, “I am Christian.”
Swami Lakshmananda was Killed
In 2008, Swami Lakshmananda was killed at his Kanya Ashram (a residential girl's school) in Tumudibandh, about 100 km from Phulbani, the district headquarters of Kandhamal district along with four others. About 30-40 armed men surrounded the Ashram on Krishna Janmashtami Day and killed them in front of about 130 girls who are housed in the Kanya Ashram Swamiji started. It is believed that Swamiji was considered as the main reason for the failure of Christian organizations to make inroads in converting the locals.
New Bible Is Written For India -
A team of 30 biblical scholars spent 15 years to write The New Community Bible for Indians only to attract the poor, gullible Hindus by comparing the Bible with many of Hindus scriptures such as Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Mahabharata, and the Gandhi’s statement about turning the other cheek.
You see many pictures that resemble the pictures of Hindus Deities to fool the villagers. Mary is shown with barefoot wearing a simple sari with head covered, and applying Bindi on her forehead alongside Joseph in a turban and loincloth carrying a basket on his head to resemble the images of Vasudeva & Devaki carrying Lord Krishna across the Yamuna River. There is also a full-page portrait of Mother Teresa, the nun who served the destitute on the streets of Kolkata, above the words “pure and blameless religion lies in coming to help orphans and widows”.
Digestion of Hindu Customs
On Christmas Day, many churches conduct Masses in Indian style, using Aarti, breaking coconuts, offering camphor, lighting incense sticks, singing kirtans and even offer Prasadam to Jesus. So much for Idol worship! It is done only to trap the Hindus by making the m comfortable with worship services. Mother Karen observed, “The Indian style Mass is being celebrated in many Christian ashrams in India.” There are nearly Christian ashrams in India where Christianity is presented to show that it is an Eastern faith. Christ is dressed to look like an Indian sadhu.
They also have developed Sahasranamavali (Thousand names) for Jesus in Sanskrit with meaning for each Nama. Since many Hindus are used to listening to Ashtottara Nama and Sahasranamavali for many Hindu Gods and Goddesses, the Christians have gone to the extent of composing them to lure and attract Hindus.
Popes call for establishing Cross-over India
On November 7, 1999, the Pope John Paul II addressing the missionaries gave a call to convert Asia to Christianity as follows: -
“Just as the first millennium saw the cross firmly planted in the soil of Europe, and the second in that of America and Africa, so may the Third Christian Millennium witness a great harvest of faith on this vast and vital continent.” Pope Benedict XVI also reiterated conversion agenda with the words, “The church is by its very nature missionary; its first task is evangelization.”
Since that time along with the support of Sonia Gandhi at the helm and five Chief Ministers, the missionaries were able to convert many Hindus without any opposition or questioning. They were able to bring so many Foreigner missionaries to India, and in front of many Chief Ministers they were able to do the so-called miracles and illegally engaged in conversions. The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh was able to even plant Christians in the Temples for converting Hindus, appointed Vice Chancellor to the university that was funded by Hindu Temples, tried to take away 5 hills of TTD, started funding Christians to travel to Bethlehem, tampered with the lands of Hindu Temples, stopped Dharma Sadassu meetings of Swamiji at TTD, etc.
Critics of Christianity were tortured and/or killed
Reincarnation Two church councils held in 231 and 232 enacted motions against Origen, and he was excommunicated.
This idea that God gives people varying amounts of abilities at birth - each according to his ability - is the heart of reincarnation and the law of divine justice. The great Church Father Origen used this very parable to teach pre-existence and reincarnation.
"The soul has neither beginning nor end … [They] come into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of their previous lives." (Origen, De Principils) Origen was a firm believer and an ardent defender of pre-existence and reincarnation. During the Decian persecution, Origen was cast into prison, tortured, and condemned to the stake. The death of the emperor prevented his execution, but Origen's health was broken. He died at the age of 69 in 253 or 254.
Leo Tolstoy was excommunicated for criticizing the Church practices and Christianity.
Galileo published a book entitled “Dialogue“ on the Two Chief Systems of the World, which said that the Earth was not flat and not the center of the universe.
Galileo said his findings supported the Copernican astronomical theory. The Roman Catholic Church condemned and denounced his views as dangerous to the Christian faith. He was tried by an Inquisition court and forced him to renounce his views since they are considered as being “vehemently suspected of heresy’ and contradicted the views of the church. He was imprisoned for life for failing to withdraw his views
Hypatia was a female mathematician, philosopher and astronomer in 4th century AD Roman Egypt. Due to religious objections against heliocentrism, the Christians have now forbidden Hypatia from teaching at the school. Cyril, the leader of the Christians, views Hypatia as having too much influence over her pupils, he convinces a mob of Christians that Hypatia is a witch and they vow to kill her. Before killing her, the mob strip Hypatia naked and beat her until Davus, Hypatia’s slave, tells the mob to stone her. When everyone was busy collecting the stones, Davus secretly suffocates Hypatia to death.
In Christianity, God is a jealous God
Exodus 20:4-5 says, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God...” God says that he is jealous because people are worshipping Idols instead of worshipping him because that worship belongs to Him only.
God who is supposed to be compassionate, loving and caring acting and thinking like a small kid, who wants possess his toys and do not want to share with others, is not Godly. Any body, who is envious, bitter and resentful, cannot be called God. Thinking that the worship belongs to him only but no body else is antichrist.
Mahatma Gandhi called religious conversions a fraud on humanity. He wrote: "If I had power and could legislate, I should certainly stop all proselytizing". "I resent the overtures made to Harijans." "Stop all conversion, it is the deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth." Poverty doesn't justify conversion.
Many Christians believe that only by converting people from other religions, they will go to heave. For their self-interest, they go other countries and engage in conversion. They try you use the verse fro Genesis 1:28 to justify the rampant conversion: “God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Accepting the Christian Colleges to have reservations for admissions where almost all the students are converted to Christianity to take advantage of the available opportunities.
Christians say Jesus is the only Way
Isaiah 45:21, "There is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me."
John 14:6, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Mahatma Gandhi wrote in My Experiments With Truth: "It was impossible for me to believe that I could go to heaven or attain salvation only by becoming a Christian." All religions were equally capable of leading the follower to salvation.
Gandhi said: "If instead of confining themselves purely to humanitarian work such as education, medical services to the poor and the like, they would use these activities of theirs for the purpose of proselytizing, I would certainly like them to withdraw. Every nation considers its own faith to be as good as that of any other. Certainly the great faiths held by the people of India are adequate for her people. India stands in no need of conversion from one faith to another. (Source: Foreign Missionaries, Young India, April 23, 1931.)
Gandhi was unhappy with the Christian missionaries for misrepresenting Hinduism. "You, the missionaries," he said, "come to India thinking that you come to a land of heathens, of idolaters, of men who do not know God. One of the greatest Christian divines, Bishop Heber, wrote the two lines which have always left a sting with me: 'Where every prospect pleases, and man alone is vile.' I wish he had not written them. My own experience in my travels through out India has been to the contrary. I have gone from one end of the country to the other, without any prejudice, in a relentless search for truth, and I am not able to say that here in this fair land, watered by the great Ganga, the Brahmaputra, and the Yamuna, man is vile. He is not vile. He is as much a seeker after truth as you and I are, possibly more so."
He further commented: "I have read several missionary publications and they are able to see only the dark side and paint it darker still. The famous hymn of Bishop Heber's - 'Greenland's icy mountains' - is a clear libel on Indian humanity. I was favored with some literature even in the Yervada prison by well-meaning missionaries, which seemed to be written as if merely to belittle Hinduism."
Swami Vivekananda on Missionaries
Swami Vivekananda visited USA and Great Britain in the year 1893 and there after. He chided Christians for making the assertion that the Christianity is superior because of their prosperity. Swami said that much of that prosperity, however, was derived from the plunder of other peoples. “We who have come from the East,” he said in an interview to a U.S. newspaper on September 29, 1893, “have sat here day after day and have been told to accept Christianity because Christian nations are the most prosperous. We look about us and see England, the most prosperous Christian nation in the world, with her foot on the neck of 250,000,000 Asiatics.
We look back into history and see that the prosperity of Christian Europe began with Spain. Spain’s prosperity began with the invasion of Mexico. Christianity wins its prosperity by cutting the throats of its fellow men. At such a price the Hindu will not have prosperity. I have sat here and heard the height of intolerance. I have heard the creed of Moslems applauded, when the Moslem sword is carrying destruction into India. Blood and sword are not for the Hindu, whose religion is based on the laws of love.”
He condemned their missionary work, which he thought was intolerant and abusive. “You come with the Bible in one hand and the conqueror’s sword in the other... You trample on us and treat us like the dust beneath your feet. You destroy the precious life in animals. You insult our women. You scorn our religion.
Christian aggression website gives a list of deceptive practices the Christian missionaries deliberately, openly, cunningly use to convert innocent Hindus into their religion. Fake medicines, floating idols, fraudulent saints, blasphemy and impurity, False Identities, Guilt and accusations, secret baptism, miracles (bus stops), and miracle boxes.
Bible Verses that are offensive to Hindus
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), German philosopher, “I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty-I call it the one mortal blemish of mankind. In Christianity neither morality nor religion comes into contact with reality at any point.”
Exodus 20:3-Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:4-Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exodus 20:5-Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the lord thy god am a jealous god, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exodus 20:23-Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.
I John 5:21- Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
2 Kings 17:35-…The lord had made a covenant, and charged them, saying, ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them.
Deuteronomy7:25- The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the lord thy god.
Deuteronomy 4:24-For the lord thy god is a consuming fire, even a jealous god.
Deuteronomy 5:9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
Deuteronomy 12:3 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places.
Jeremiah 25:6 Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not provoke me to anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you.”
Exodus 23:13 “Be careful to do everything I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.
Exodus 23:24 Do not bow down before their gods or worship them or follow their practices. You must demolish them and break their sacred stones to pieces.
Exodus 34:13 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.
Numbers 33:52 Drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you. Destroy all their carved images and their cast idols, and demolish all their high places.
Deuteronomy 7:5 This is what you are to do to them: Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones, cut down their Asherah poles and burn their idols in the fire.
Deuteronomy 7:25 The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 12:4 You must not worship the LORD your God in their way.
Judges 2:2 and you shall not make a covenant with the people of this land, but you shall break down their altars.’ Yet you have disobeyed me. Why have you done this?
Zechariah 13:2 “On that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be remembered no more,” declares the LORD Almighty. “I will remove both the prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land.
All Hindus have to stand up for the TRUTH. Christians think that they have every right to convert Hindus into Christianity by any means possible but fail to give the same privilege to Hindus. Media has failed to investigate the conversion atrocities, allurement and deceptions. Media is the recipient of huge sums of money from Christian organizations. Consequently, they would not question the practices of Christianity or investigate the abuses of nuns by Church authorities, and sexual affairs of Bishops and Archbishops.
Hindus have to wake up to the real Christianity and what it says about Hindus and their practices. If they remain silent, they may be wiped out. If they do not open their eyes and if they fail to understand what Bible says about them, their very survival is at stake. Think before you participate or celebrate Christmas. Pope and many Christian leaders have already commanded their sheep to put a cross on India in the third millennium. They want to see India as a Christian nation the way they were able to Christianize both Americas, Europe and Africa. They are at it feverishly, relentlessly, ruthlessly, brutally, and persistently with almost unlimited resources flowing from Western countries.
Let us remember the words of Swami Vivekananda delivered at the Parliament of Religions, “Ye are the children of God, the sharers of immortal bliss, holy and perfect beings. Ye divinities on earth – sinners! It is a sin to call man so; it is a standing libel on human nature. Come up, lions! and shake off the delusion that you are sheep; you are souls immortal, spirits free, blest and eternal.”
