    I disagree when you say that your identity does not change when you invite Christ into your life. I understand the sense in which it is being used but it is misleading. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

    Your name and your culture does not change but you have a whole new life. Thank you Jesus.

    Amen Sandhya.

    I am Italian. Italians are very connected to the Catholic Faith. But, I have become a follower of Jesus Christ and not a follower of a denomination. I follow Him, not man.

    I do not care that I am Italian. I do not care what my family thinks of me because I am no longer Catholic. God revealed Himself to me too. I can’t help it. There is nothing I can do about it. When Jesus reveals Himself, what are you suppose to do? Ignore Him and say “No, I can’t believe, because I am worrying about what my family or friends will think of me? I cannot believe because it does not line-up with my culture?” <– This thinking is the very thing Jesus died for. Our salvation should be #1.

    If #1 in our lives is how people will think of us in our culture, we will stay where we are until we are humble and seek truth. Do not misunderstand me. I love culture. I love Indian, Italian, Russian, Korean, Pakistani, Iraqi, Jewish, etc…etc…etc. We are all One in Christ.

    Now in my life, my main focus is not others, but who I am in-Christ Jesus. That's it. I don't care. My father, my mother, my siblings, my family, my friends… most of them no longer talk to me. They hate me. Jesus says the world will hate us and it is true. I have a new family, the Body of Christ. Amen. I have a new friend, His name is Yeshua the Christ. 🙂

    I think the comment on the aspect of IDENTITY talked about in the About US section needs to be understood and expressed with a bit of caution and understanding. If I am not mistaken the IDENTITY that is being referred to here is the one that relates to your nationality, language, eating preferences, selected cultural values for eg God won’t mind if a Bengali who comes to Christ wears a Smart Dhoti and comes to the Church!! or If people compose their worship songs and hymns according their own cultural tunes or music…under the supervision of the Holy Spirit. The editor has not challenged I believe the fact the our Identity as a person in terms of our character and moral values undergoes a 360 degree change…..that I believe is obvious and any reference to such statements should be made with a loving and kind heart and not with any kind of Sarcasm!!! Do you know the heart of a Man completely??… No you for sure don’t know and will never perhaps !! then why do you JUMP to conclusions so soon?.. That’s one mistake some experienced believers and Christian leaders etc are making in considering the views and feeling of Hindus and other Indians coming to Christ. Have some patience and seek clarity first …. Anyway God bless you brother.

    The time has come for the family of believers to understand (especially in India) where they need to set themselves right so as to not make it difficult for Gentiles to come to the Lord …. Praise the Lord!

    I don’t understand the need of proclaiming that christ is the only way to god, and all these testimonies might be hurting someone’s belief’s. I have one straight question, If jesus christ has such a great healing powers why is world in this way there are many not curable diseases, why are the people with polio are still not able to walk as usual etc. Hinduism is the only one which preaches god is one, one might believe if the god is one then why does they have so many gods, the many gods are just a way the people worship by there own will, we hindus do respect other gods which is lacking in christianity. And adding to this I have done some research and came up with some questions/errors from bible which are as follows:
    In the beginning, 1st Book, Book of Genesis, 1st Ch., it is mentioned – It says… ‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, in six days and talks about a evening and a morning, referring to a 24 – hour day. Today scientists tell us, that the universe cannot be created in a 24 hour period of six days. Qur’an too speaks about six ‘ayyams’. The Arabic word singular is ‘yaum’ plural is ‘ayyam’. It can either mean a day of 24 hours, or it is a very long period, an ‘yaum’, an epoch. Scientists say we have no objection in agreeing that the universe – it could have been created in 6 very long periods.

    Point No.2 – Bible says in Genesis Ch. No. 1 Verses No. 3 and 5,…‘Light was created on the first day.’ Genesis, Ch., 1 Verses, 14 to 19… ‘The cause of light – stars and the sun, etc. was created on the fourth day’. How can the cause of light be created on the 4th day – later than the light which came into existence on the first day? – It is unscientific.

    Point No.3 – Further, the, Bible says Genesis, Ch. 1, Verses 9 to 13… ‘Earth was created on the 3rd day. How can you have a night and day without the earth ? The day depends upon the rotation of the Earth Without the earth created, how can you have a night and day?

    Point No..4 – Genesis, Ch. No. 1 Verses 9 to 13 says… ‘Earth was created on the third day.’ Genesis Ch. No. 1 Verses 14 to 19 says…‘The Sun and the Moon were created on the fourth day.’ Today science tells us… ‘Earth is part of the parent body… the sun.’ It cannot come into existence before the sun – It is unscientific.

    Point No. 5 – The Bible says in Genesis, Ch. No.1, Verse No. 11 to 13…‘The vegetation, the herbs the shrubs, the trees – they were created on the 3rd day And the Sun, Genesis, Ch. No. 1, Verses. 14 to 19, was created on the 4th day. How can the vegetation come into existence without sunlight, and how can they survive without sunlight ?

    Point No.6 – The Bible says in Genesis, Ch. 1, Verses No.16, that…‘God created two lights the greater light, the Sun to rule the day, and the lesser light the Moon, to rule the night. The actual translation, if you go to the Hebrew text, it is ‘lamps’…‘Lamps having lights of its own.’ And that you will come to know better, if you read both the Verses – Genesis, Ch. No.1, Verse. 16, as well as 17. Verse No.17 says…‘And Almighty God placed them in the firmament, to give light to the earth… To give light to the earth.’ Indicating, that Sun and the Moon has its own light – which is in contradiction with established scientific knowledge that we have. There are certain people who try and reconciliate, and say that the six days mentioned in the Bible, it actually refers to epocs – like the Qur’an long periods – not six, 24 hour day. It is illogical – you read in the Bible, evening, morning – It clearly states 24 hours, it indicates. But even if I use the concordance approach – no problem. I agree with your illogical argument – Yet they will only be able to solve the 1st scientific error of 6 days creation, and second, of first day ‘light’ and 3rd day ‘earth.’ The remaining four, yet they cannot solve. Some further say that… ‘If it is a 24-hour period, why cannot the vegetables survive for one 24 hour day without sunlight?’ I say ‘Fine – If you say that the vegetables were created before the sun, and can survive for one 24-hour day, I have got no objection. But you cannot say the days mentioned are 24 hours as well as epochs – You cannot have the cake and eat it, both. If you say it is long period, you solve Point No.1 and 3, the remaining 4 are yet there. If you say the days are 24 hours day, you solve only Point No.5 – the remaining 5 are yet there – It becomes unscientific. I leave it to Dr. William Campbell, whether he wants to say… ‘It is long period’, and say that there are only 4 scientific errors – or say… ‘It is a 24 hour day’, and say there is only 5 scientific errors in the creation of the universe.

    Point No. 7 – Regarding the concept of Earth, there are various Scientists who have described… ‘How will the world end.’ Hypothesis – Some may be right, some may be wrong. But either the world will perish or the world will live forever. Both cannot take place simultaneously – It is unscientific. But this is exactly what the Bible says. It is mentioned in the Bible, in the book of Hebrews, Ch. No.1 Verses No.10 and 11, and the book of Psalms, Ch. No.102, Verse No.25 and 26, that…‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, and they will perish.’ Exactly opposite is mentioned in the book of Ecclesiastics, Ch. No.1, Verse No.4, and the book of Psalms, Ch. No.78, Verse No.69, that… ‘The earth will abide forever.’ I leave it to Dr. William Campbell to choose which of the two Verses are unscientific – the first pair or the second pair. One has to be unscientific – Both cannot take place. The world cannot abide forever as well as perish – It is unscientific.

    Point No. 8 – Regarding ‘the Heavens’, the Bible says in Job, Ch. 26, Verse 11, that…‘The pillars of the Heaven will tremble.’ Qur’an says in Surah Luqman, Ch. 31, Verse No.10, that…‘The Heavens are without any pillars – Don`t you see? Don’t you see the Heavens are without any pillars? – Bible says heaven have got pillars.

    Point No. 9 – Not only do the Heavens have got pillars – Bible says in the first book of Samuel, Ch. No.2 Verses No.8, as well as the book of Job Ch. No.9, Verse No.6, and the book of Psalms Ch. No.75, Verse No.3, that… ‘Even the earth have got pillars.’

    Point No. 10 – In the field of ‘Diet and Nutrition’ lets analyse, what does the Bible say. The Bible says in the book of Genesis, Ch. No.1, Verse No.29, that… ‘God has given you all the herbs bearing seeds, the trees bearing fruits – those that bear seed, as meat for you.’ New International Version says… ‘The seed bearing plants, and the trees bearing fruits bearing seeds are food for you, all of them.’ Today, even a layman knows that there are several poisonous plants like wild berries, stritchi, datura, plants containing alkaloid, polyander, bacaipoid – that which if you ingest, if you eat there are high possibilities you may die. How come the Creator of the universe and the human beings, does not know, that if you have these plants, you will die. I hope Dr. William Campbell does not give these vegetarian diet to his patients.

    Point No. 11 – The Bible has a scientific test how to identify a true believer. It is mentioned in the Gospel of Mark, Ch. No.16, Verse No.17 and 18 – It says that… ‘There will be signs for true believers and among the signs – In my name they shall cast out devils, they shall speak foreign tongues, new tongues, they shall take up serpents – And if they drink deadly poison, they shall not be harmed – And when they place their hand over the sick, they shall be cured.’ This is a scientific test – In scientific terminology, it is known as the ‘confirmatory test’ for a true Christian believer. In the past 10 years of my life, I have personally interacted with thousands of Christians, including missionaries – I have not come across a single Christian, who has passed this confirmatory test of the Bible. I have not come across a single Christian who took poison – I have not come across any who took poison, and who has not died. And in scientific terminology, this is also called as the ‘falsification test’ That means if a false person tries and does this test… takes poison, he will die. And a false person will not dare attempt this test – If you are not a true Christian believer, you will not dare attempt this test. Because you try and attempt the falsification test, you will fail. So a person who is not a true Christian believer, will never attempt this test. I have read the book ‘The Qur’an and the Bible in the light of history and science’ written by Dr. William Campbell. And I assume – that he is a true Christian believer, and at least I would like him to confirm to me about the falsification test. Please be rest assured… Please be rest assured, I will not ask Dr. William Campbell to have deadly poison – Because I don’t want to jeopardize the debate. What I’ll do – I will only ask him to speak in foreign tongues… In new languages. And as many of you may be aware that India is a land, which has more than 1000 languages and dialects. Only thing I request him is, to say these 3 words… ‘One hundred rupees’, in the 17 official languages. There are only 17 official languages in India and to make it easier for Dr. William Campbell, I have got a ‘One hundred-rupee note.’ And this has all the 17 languages mentioned here. Besides English and Hindi, I will help him. I give him a beginning –‘Ek sav rupaiya, In Hindi. The remaining 15 languages are here – I request him to read. I know the test says… ‘They will speak foreign languages on their own, without the help of reading’ – but I want to make the test easier, I want to see someone passing the test – I’ve not seen any one. So if he cannot say it on his own, or from his memory, at least read it. I don’t mind I’ll accept it. And I would request the chairperson to give it to Dr. William Campbell. He has his rebuttal – 15 languages, ‘Ek sav rupaiya’… 3 words only. What does the Bible say regarding ‘Hydrology’? Bible says in Genesis, Ch. No.9, Verse No.13 to 17, that… ‘After God, at the time of Noah submerged the world by flood, and after the flood’ subsided, He said… ‘I put up a rainbow in the sky as a promise to the humankind never to submerge the world again, by water. To the unscientific person it may be quite good… ‘Oh rainbow is a sign of Almighty God, never to submerge the world by flood again.’ But today we know very well, that rainbow is due to the refraction of sunlight, with rain or mist. Surely there must have been thousands of rainbows before the time of Noah, peace be upon him. To say it was not there before Noah’s time you have to assume that the law of refraction did not exist – which is unscientific.’

    Point No. 12 – In the field of medicine, the Bible says in the book of Leveticus, Ch. No.14, Verse No.49 to 53 – it gives a novel way for disinfecting a house from plague of leprosy… disinfecting a house from plague of leprosy. It says that… ‘Take two birds, kill one bird, take wood, scale it – and the other living bird, dip it in water… and under running water – later on sprinkle the house 7 times with it. Sprinkle the house with blood to disinfect against plague of leprosy? You know blood is a good media of germs, bacteria, as well as toxin – I hope Dr. William Campbell does not use this method of disinfecting the OT, the operation theatre.

    Point No. 13 – It is mentioned in the book of Leveticus, Ch. No.12, Verse No.1 to 5, and we know medically, that after a mother gives birth to a child, the post-partal period, it is unhygienic. To say it is ‘unclean’, Religiously – I have got no objection. But Leviticus, Ch. No.12 Verse No.1 to 5, says that… ‘After a woman gives birth to a male child, she will be unclean for 7 days, and the period of uncleanliness will continue for 33 days more. If she gives birth to a female child, she will be unclean for two weeks, and the period of uncleanliness will continue for 66 days. In short, if a woman gives birth to a male child… ‘a son’, she is unclean for 40 days. If she gives birth to a female child… ‘a daughter’, she is unclean for 80 days. I would like Dr. William Campbell to explain to me scientifically, how come a woman remains unclean for double the period, if she gives birth to a female child, as compared to a male child.

    Point No. 14 – The Bible also has a very good test for adultery – How to come to know a woman has committed adultery. In the book of Numbers, Ch. no.5 Verse No..11 to 31, I’ll just say in brief, it says that… ‘The priest should take holy water in a vessel, take dust from the floor, and put it into the vessel – And that is the bitter water ‘And after cursing it, give it to the woman And if the woman has committed adultery, after she drinks it, the curse will enter her body, the stomach will swell, the thigh will rot, and she shall be cursed by the people. If the woman has not committed adultery, she will remain clean and she will bear the seed. A novel method of identifying whether a woman has committed adultery or not. You know today in the world, there are thousands of cases pending in different parts of the world, in different courts of law – only on the assumption that someone has alleged that a woman has committed adultery. I had read in the newspapers, and I came to know from the media, that the President of this great country Mr. Bill Clinton, he was involved in a sex scandal about 2 years back. I wonder, that why did not the American court use this ‘bitter water test’ for adultery? He would have gone scot-free immediately. Why did not the Christian missionaries of this great country, specially those who are in the medical field like my respected Dr. William Campbell, use this bitter water test to bail out their President, immediately.

    Point No. 15 – ‘Mathematics’ is a branch, which is closely associated with science, with which you can solve problems, etc. There are thousands of contradictions in the Bible – hundreds deal with mathematics, and I’ll first touch on few of them. It is mentioned in Ezra, Ch. No.2, Verse No.1, and Nehemiah, Ch. No.7, Verse No.6, the context that… ‘When the people returned from exile, from Babylon, when king Nebucheldeser of Babylon, when he released the men from Israel, they came back from captivity’ – and the list of the people are given. The list is given in Ezra, Ch. No.2, Verse No.2 to 63, and Nehemiah Ch. No.7, Verse No.7 up to 65; the list is given with the names as well as number of people released. In these 60 Verses there are no less than 18 times – the name is exactly the same but the number is different. There are no less than 18 contradictions in less than 60 Verses, of these two Chapters. This is the list – I don’t have time to run through the list – There are no less than 18 different contradictions in less than 60 Verses.

    Point No. 16 – Further it is mentioned in Ezra, Ch. No.2 Verse No.64 that… ‘The total congregation, if you add up… if you add up, it comes to 42,360.’ And if you read in Nehemiah, Ch. No.7, Verse No.66, there also the total is the same 42,360. But if you add up all these verses – which I had to do my homework – this is the list of Ezra… this is the list of Nehemiah. Ezra Ch. No 2, Nehemiah Ch. No 7 – If you add up – I had to do my homework…if you add up, Ezra Ch. No. 2 – It does not come to 42,360 – it comes to 29,818. And if you add up Nehemiah, Ch. No. 7, even then it does not come to 42,360 – It comes to 31,089. The author of the Bible, presumed to be ‘Almighty God’, does not know simple addition. If you give this problem, even to a person who has passed elementary school, he will be able to get the right answer. If you add up all the 60 Verses, it is so easy. Almighty God did not know adding – Nauzubillah… if we presume, that this is the word of God.

    Point No. 17 – Further, if we read, in Ezra Ch. No. 2, Verse No. 65, it says…There were 200 singing men and women – Nehemiah Ch. No. 7, Verse No. 67…‘There were 245 singing men and women.’ Were they 200 – or were they 245 singing men and women? Context is the same – A mathematical contradiction.

    Point No. 18 – It is mentioned in the 2nd Kings, Ch. No 24, Verse No 8, that…‘Jehoiachin was 18 years old, when he began to reign Jerusalem, and he reigned for 3 months and 10 days. 2nd Chronicles, Ch. No 36, Verse No 9, says that…‘Jehoiachin was 8 years old when he began to reign and he reigned for 3 months, 10 days. Was Jehoiachin 18 years when he began to reign, or was he 8 years old?

    Point No. 19 – Did he reign for 3 months, or did he reign for 3 months 10 days?

    Point No. 20 – Further, it is mentioned in the 1st Kings, Ch. No 7, Verse No 26, that…‘In Solomon’s temple, in his molten sea, he had 2000 baths. In 2nd Chronicles, Ch. No 4, Verse No 5, he had 3000 baths. Did he have 2000 baths or did he have 3000 baths? – That, I leave it upon Dr. William Campbell to decide which is correct. There is a clear-cut mathematical contradiction.

    Point No. 21 – Furthermore. it is mentioned in the First Kings, Ch. No. 15, Verse No. 33, that… ‘Basha, he died in the 26th year of reign of Asa.’ And 2nd Chronicles Ch. No 16, Verse No 1, says that…‘Basha invaded Judah in the 36th years of the reign of Asa.’ How can Basha invade 10 years after his death? – It is unscientific.

    (Point No. 22 – Almighty God – He said, “I put up a rainbow in the sky, as a promise to the human kind, never to submerge the world again by water”.)

    And I am sure that if there is anything provided by vedas its always true and scientifically proved.

    The main difference is b/w hinduism and christianity is Hinduism scriptures are written with lot expertise and christian bible is written and then asks the humans to experience it/believe it.

    Following the regional practices is always perfect for human beings in a particular region(ofcourse christianity is/has digested many religions in the world).

    From Ordinary To Extra Ordinary
    Who am I?
    My name is Subhash Shiv Chand Sharma; I am born in Hindu Brahmin community. When I was six days old there was a prophecy about me that I will live as a sanyasi (Hindu Saint), when I was born many relatives from our own community died and due to that I got a label of unlucky child, and I was offered to Hindu god and goddesses so that they may only take care of me. In other words I was left all alone, since I didn’t bring luck for my family; they also started to refuse me and never use to allow me to be with them and to mingle with them for anything. For everything I use to run to god and use to ask him why you forgotten me “please take my life I do not wish to be in this ruthless world” this use to be my prayer. I only use to read all the Holy books of Hinduism apart from my school books. Since I was growing up in a village I use to take care of the animals and work in a field of my grandfather that was my life style every day. If anything uses to go wrong I used to be blamed for everything.
    My Life Style: Being a boy from a Brahmin community I was taught everything about what is the job of the Brahmins and why we are different from other people, I learned how to read palm, how to make horoscope and astrology. I use to wake up 4 am in the morning and use to take bath with a cold water of river and use to comeback in our temple to clean it and sanctify it, I use to decorate it with flowers and burn incense for the god and goddesses, I use to wait for the sun god to appear so that I may able to offer a water to him as a form of my worship to him and use to offer a water to banyan tree. Once the water is offered milk and oil is offered to the idols then I use to break my fast for the morning and then I use to go to school. During my off from the schools I use to seat on meditation posture for 4-6 hours every day and I use to think that I am a holy person.
    Encounter with the creator: 6″Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6 God is a God who knows how to reveal Himself to the people who are actually looking for Him. I use to seat on a meditation (Dhyan Mudra) everyday for 2 hours and during my off more than that. Once when I was doing the meditation suddenly the image of Shiva (A Hindu god) appeared before me. I was so happy and over whelmed with joy and with tears in my ask him to open your eyes and look at me once, I want to see your eyes but he didn’t, I was kept on crying and asking him please look at me once but seems nothing moved him. With my anger i told him I am your devotee and I do meditation on your name, you are also doing the same that means there is someone bigger then you who holds the entire creation in His hand, the moment I said this the image of Shiva was broke into pieces and disappeared before my eyes. Suddenly I realized that there is someone who is bigger than him and I need to look for Him who is He.
    Now after sometime my dad called me to stay with him for the education sake and I was happy to go to the city from the village but my life style was the same, I use to wake up in the morning and use to do my rituals. One day when my father came from his office I found that he was not well and with the help of couple of his colleague we admitted him to the military Hospital. My mom was out of town due to the delivery of my sister. I was all alone to look after my father. Doctor told me to go to home because they had put my dad in ICU under observation. I came back home all alone with worries in my heart, before this incidence I never lived alone so it was a new experience for me to stay alone. In the night time when I was not getting sleep I thought of watching television, I kept on changing the channel until I encountered in one particular channel one man of God was sharing something about Jesus, and after that many miracle took place. I thought it is just a trick and it cannot happen, but more than a miracle the word of God was attracting me so much because He said “God is like your father and He cares for you and if you are willing He is ready to talk to you” I was stunned because I never heard anything like that in my life before. None of our Hindu scriptures says that God is our father. “If you are ready then invite Him to you and ask Him to speak with you now now now, I immediately turned off the Television and I prayed a simple prayer and said Jesus who you are I don’t know but I want to know you, can you please speak to me and reveal yourself to me? Suddenly my room was full of smoke; I was so terrified because I don’t know what to do next, and there was a audible voice 10 “But you are my witnesses, O Israel!” says the LORD.
    “You are my servant.
    You have been chosen to know me, believe in me,
    and understand that I alone am God.
    There is no other God—
    there never has been, and there never will be.
    11 I, yes I, am the LORD,
    and there is no other Saviour. Isaiah 43:10-11.
    When I heard this I was so much scared, I thought there is a ghost in my room and I went under the bed to hide myself. I was waiting for sun to rise so that I may look for the church and some question with the people over there.
    Next day was Sunday and I knew some of the Christian people use to stay in our neighbourhood, I thought of going there and meeting them. I took bath and got ready to go there and it was 10 am in the morning, when I reached there they were having some prayer meeting in their house (actually it was a house church). When I reached there they all were praying and somehow I managed to speak with the elderly lady from that family. I said aunty I would like to share something with you, but she told me to remain quite because the prayer was going. I had no any other choice I sat quietly and they were all clapping and praying. Suddenly one brother stated to speak something which I was unable to understand. I went very close to him so that I may here if he is speaking some Mantra (chanting) in Sanskrit, but that was not Sanskrit language. I was thinking in my heart which language is that and what he is talking about (actually he was speaking in tongues). After him suddenly one sister stood up in the corner and she started interpreting what that brother said a minute ago, she said there is a brother here with whom God wants to communicate, “ dear brother the Lord says:
    10 “But you are my witnesses, O Israel!” says the LORD.
    “You are my servant.
    You have been chosen to know me, believe in me,
    and understand that I alone am God.
    There is no other God—
    there never has been, and there never will be.
    11 I, yes I, am the LORD,
    and there is no other Savior. Isaiah 43:10-11
    I was so terrified because it was me about whom she was talking, this time I felt like something has been lifted from me and I was feeling so light but I had a doubt on them. Without saying a word I left from that place and came back home and started recalling back my life. How I was hungry and thirsty for God and how much dedicated I was for my god and rituals but I got nothing. But there is someone who wants me to know Him and He says there is no any other God beside me. I don’t know how when all this thoughts were kept coming in my mind I thought of kneeling down and pray and ask God to speak again if it was Him and, I knelt down and God. “God if it is you I want you to touch me so that I may feel you” very next moment I had a feeling that someone is standing next to me and waiting for me to say that. The blessed anointed hand of God was over my head, God was patting on my head. I was crying and crying because in next very moment I could see myself in his mighty arms and so may deadly animals and snakes were coming out of me. Since my childhood I was a rejected child but this was the first time I was feeling loved, whenever I think about that moment I cry. I was able to meet my real dad and saviour and the master of my life.
    Time to Carry the Cross and show a true mark of a Disciple.
    Soon after inviting Jesus to be the Lord and mater of my life I stated sharing about Him with my friends and relatives, my intention was to tell them that I met a creator of the universe and how He spoke with me. My dad got discharged from the Hospital and my mom was also back with my sister and her husband from another city. They told me to stop all this nonsense immediately but I was trying to protect my faith that this is not nonsense but a real experience with the God of universe. I kept on sharing about the love of Lord Jesus Christ with everyone whomever I met in spite of the threatening from my parents and relatives, I use to go for the fellowship in a same place and started learning about the teaching of Jesus Christ and they gave me a new testament. I use to keep reading it and the spirit of the Lord was use to minister me and speak to me all the time. The opposition from my brother in law and sister grew so much now they started beating me with belt, sticks and sandals. My parents they never use to say anything to them because they use to think I am useless, my mother use to say that” it would have been nice if you would have die when you were born”. All this kinds of words use to break me more and more but God use to speak to me all the time, Once He said “51 Do not think that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
    52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
    53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. Luke 12: 51-53
    I wanted all of my family to know about the Love of Lord Jesus Christ since they were living and believing in the lies of the enemy, but they more I tried to go closer to them the more they torture me and beaten me till the time I use to get faint, I after knowing the love of Christ till nine month I was tortured day and night. They stopped me giving water and food for 45 days and locked me up in a store room. I only use to read the New Testament and pray all the time and use to ask God “ why God you are allowing all this things to happen with me and I could hear God saying “Those who try to live a Godly life because they believe in Christ Jesus will be persecuted 2 Timothy 3:12.
    I had no any other choice apart from full submission to the Lord and I obeyed Him even in the midst of suffering and persecution from my parents and relatives day and night, but the good news is I was never alone because I was surrounded by the love of God all the time and He was with me to give me courage and take care of me. One day my sister was yelling at me for reading Bible all the time and she tried to enter in my room and she found me that I was seating in the midst of fire but it was not harming me and she ran away from my room. Like this many incidence took place in my life where my parents my sister and relatives has seen the protection of God over me. Once my uncle put me in one hut and in the night he tried to fire it but He saw many people with white cloths standing outside of the hut and guarding it. So he had no any other choice and he had to run away from along with his man who came to beat me and kill me on 11 May 2000 I was finally kicked of my house so that I may live by my own and not depend on them anymore.
    I was so happy because finally I was free to preach about the everlasting love of my God, I went to village after village and cities after cities to tell people about Jesus, I have seen His mighty hand were healing people, casting out demons and adding the souls in the kingdom of God.

    My Teenage Life
    After Kicked out of the house I never knew where to go and how to survive, I was going out of the village I saw a vacancy of a job in one liquor shop (Bar), I asked the man over there if he can offer me that job and he was agree to give me a job, they finalized my salary and it was 700 rupees including food and room to stay. I use to wash dishes and clean the bar all the time and in the night I use to be a watchman I use to read Bible and pray in the night since I use to be busy throughout the day and evening. I worked there for 4 month, I was happy because I was able to pray and read my Bible without any opposition. One day my uncle came to do some party with his friends and he saw me over there and stated abusing me and he said “ wait I will teach you nice lesson for following a foreign God and low cast religion” I was scared and prayed in my heart for the protection, after drinking a lot he went to the owner that and told him that I have stolen his money and mobile phone and shop owner was so angry with since my uncle was a political Leader of RSS and BJP, the owner wanted to please him and almost 15-20 people with hockey stick and iron rod beaten me so badly they broke my ribs, my hand my leg and head. My clothes were burned my Bible was burned and they threw me from the Clift which was 800 mtrs deep. I was there for 3 days unconscious, nobody came to see me weather I am living or dead.
    Some villagers found me in that condition and admitted me to the Hospital, when I came to my scenes after 3 days I asked God what I am doing on this earth, please take my life and this time I didn’t hear anything from God as well. I had no cloths apart from my underwear. The bar owner came to see me and he said why did you steal, I said “ sir, I never stolen any money or mobile and I told him about my life and about my uncle, he told me that they are planning to kill me and ask me to run away and he gave me some money with a pair of cloths. Hospital kicked me out next day because I was not able to pay the bill, with my broken leg, ribs, hand and head I left from the Hospital and I hid myself in jungle for 10 days without any food and water and al the time I used to ask God, God why you forgotten me? But I knew I was suffering for my faith and its not over yet and I started to pray for my healing. One fine morning when I woke up I found myself miraculously healed. There was no pain in any part of my body and my stomach was full as if I ate nicely.
    I heard from the Holy Spirit run Subhash, and I could hear people were searching me in forest to find me and kill me and beforehand God healed me completely and fed me so that I may run. I was running like a deer, I was able to manage to reach a bus stand and from there I took a bus for Delhi. And after 12 Hours I was able to reach Delhi. My God once again protected me from death and evil hand. This was not the only incidence but God helped me to run from many places to save my life.

    Dear Sirs,

    I am shortly going to be working with mostly Hindu graduate students at a university nearby. I need the best books and websites to refute Hinduism. Can you provide me with a bibliography of these?

    I have just stumbled on your website and am so encouraged to see these testimonies. I too came from a Brahmin background when I was a teenager way back in the 1970s in the UK and found very little support anywhere pastorally speaking as most churches were totally ignorant of the challenges faced by those of us who have come from this background. As a result, I suffered from extreme isolation, misunderstandings, spiritual abuse for many years. However, God has been faithful in taking care of me as I was the only convert in my family. My father came to Christ on his deathbed in 1997 (we were not close but he was an honourable man who provided for us until his death at age 80yrs) and I am witnessing God working in my family. I would love to share my story with you as my heart’s greatest desire is to share with people in India all the challenges I have experienced as a British born, first generation Christian in the UK at a time when racial prejudice was rife here and churches ignorant of the needs of people like myself and how God brought me through much trauma (physical, mental and spiritual) to enable me to be where I am today. My grandmother was a Bollywood actress in the days before it was even known as Bollywood and I have film industry relatives both in the UK and in India. sadly Bollywood perpetuates the fantasies of so many people in India and as an educator myself now, I can see why it is so important to educate people to live in the real world!
