Rampant Christian deceptive conversion of Hindus. Recommendations to stop Conversions and start reconversions
“The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity.” John Adams
Christian church authorities used every trick, deceit and deception to convert gullible and innocent Hindus into Christianity. Their goal is to dismantle the Hindu edifice and erect Christian They do not even mind going against their own religious scripture, Bible. Why do they use so many deceptive techniques to convert people? Billions of dollars are pouring into India from many foreign countries.
The Christian preachers have to show that they are converting in order to get more and more money from these countries. The Christian Preachers remuneration depends on the numbers game. The more they show the number of converts, the more money they get. Many of these Christians are delusional to think that they go to heaven if they can convert non-Christians to Christianity.
This delusional thinking and greed to make more money would make the Preachers to smack and slap their own Bible and the teachings of their only savior Jesus. 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.
Father Joseph Menengis, priest of St James Church in Mariyannapalya, Bangalore, confessed before the Justice B K Somashekara Commission of Inquiry on Wednesday (March 11, 2009). “The duty of every Christian is to convert non-Christians to Christianity by any means.”
When he says “by any means” what does it mean? That means Christians can go against their own Bible teachings, ignore their own Bible, and insult their own God for their selfish monetary motives. They use such method as deception, deceit, force, manipulation, allurement, tricks, treachery, exploitation, violence, killings, educational indoctrination, defame other religions, demean other gods, denounce other scriptures, sexual exploitation and the list goes on.
One may ask why they use these different means to convert Hindus into Christianity. Honestly speaking Hindus are more knowledgeable, have more wisdom, are equipped with reservoir of tolerance toward other religions, do not see other religious people as prey for conversion and do not see other religious people as commodities to be exploited. They just treat humans as humans with no ulterior motive. They are happy with their religion. Their religion has all the answers for their day to day living. Hence the Preachers cannot convert Hindus into Christianity by using legitimate, honest, truthful and open methods. They know that they cannot convert them truthfully. Their teachings are not based on logic, reasoning, rationale and cross examination. Hence the Preachers rely on deceptive, secretive methods to conversion.
They recognize that the Hindus will not accept, support the teachings of deception, violence, and intolerance. Therefore it is important for them to use any trick in the book. That is the reason Father Joseph Menengis said that they convert Hindus by any means to Christianity. Over jealous preachers addicted to deception, violence, and wealth do not mind even abusing their own teachings and through mud on their own scriptures. Then the question may be asked what are they doing that is so contradictory to the teachings in the Bible.
Father Joseph Menengis also said “Hindus believe in idol worship. So to attract them to Christianity, idol worship is performed in churches.” During cross-examination, the priest said that “despite idol worship being prohibited in Bible, we have idol worship in churches.” Most of the churches have adopted the policy of what is called “inculturation” in order to attract Hindus to these churches.
In fact some churches are using Hindu methods of worshiping such as offering arthi, performing abhishekam, reciting Ashtottaranama and Sahasrana archanas to Jesus, singing bhajans,etc. only to convert and modifying the churches to look like Hindu Temples. Some Preachers are dressed like a Hindu saint with long saffron robes to mislead Hindus.
The Outlook magazine observed that “Om Namah Jesus could well reverberate inside hundreds of Catholic churches in India very soon, if the changing physical face of these places of worship is anything to go by.” A number of shrines for Mary Mata, different saints are springing up. How can that reconcile to the injunctions of Bible condemning the idol worship? For example in Vijayawada thousands of pilgrims queued up to visit Mary Matha shrine at Gunadala on the second day of the three-day Gunadala Matha festival on Tuesday….Many pilgrims had their heads tonsured on the hillock before offering something. (The Hindu Feb 11, 2009).
Bible Sanctions Deception
Apostle Paul openly admits that he used deception to convert people from other religion to Christianity. He lied and acted deceptively. He was like a chameleon changing colors to fit the occasion. That means if he meets Jew, he would act like a Jew; and meets a poor, he would act like poor only to convert others into Christianity.
No morals, no ethics, no scruples and no principles are observed. Look at the third world countries. In fact, Thomas Jefferson was very critical of Christianity and its coercive and deceptive practices. “Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites.
To support roguery and error all over the earth.” In Christianity, no reason, no debate, no dialogue, no persuasion and no discussion is encouraged. Puppets act according the whims and fancies of the puppeteers. The missionaries are like puppets in the hands of the Church, or the Roman Catholic Church or Pope who control their thinking, their activities, their future salvation, and their tactics to convert other people. They have no independence or freedom to act. The missionaries are no more than puppets in the hands of their Church and or Pope. Let us look at what Paul says about the deception he used to convert people. Since that time, he became role model for Mother Teresa and many other similar evangelists.
“Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” – 1 Corinthians 9:19-23.
What the Bible says about the spreading of Gospel and baptizing.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). Mathew 10: 16-18, “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles.
” Mark 16:15-18; King James Version (KJV)
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Conversion is violent
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 any more of its existing religious traditions.”
- All religions are same.
- Nothing will happen to Sanatana Dharma.
This is another argument many of our Hindus make by saying Sanatana dharma has survived for centuries. Nothing will happen to it. Nobody can destroy it. There is inherent strength in our dharma that will perpetuate and survive. But, what happened to the Hindu civilization that existed before the Abrahamic religion were born over two thousand years ago. It used to be practices from Afghanistan and many Middle Eastern countries to Russia and all of the Easter part of the globe until China.
There is so much evidence surfacing over the years about relics of so many Temples and the images of Gods all over the world. How do you convince the people in Bangladesh and Pakistan Hindus who might have thought in a similar manner thinking that nothing will happen to the Sanatana Dharma? Now only handful of Hindus remain. But, now Hindu space is shrinking day by day in states like West Bengal, Assam, Kashmir, Kerala and Telangana. Let us not be fooled to thinking that nothing will happen to Sanatana Dharma. Hindus cannot abandon the karma theory and stare at the sky.
We need to abandon these two fallacies and unzip our lips to have an open dialogue about the atrocities of other religions and also think of our fathers who were wiped out in our neighboring countries.
