For the Love of God

If you would like to continue reading my writings, I have moved to Loving God Holy at WordPress. Thank you.

Below is a copy an e-mail I received from TownHall.com. This is one of the reasons I have many problems with India:
While distributing Christian literature, Pastor M. Aharon, was mercilessly assaulted by a group of militant Hindus. He was assaulted for converting Hindus and Muslims to Christianity. His face was covered with blood from heavy blows to his mouth and nose. He survived the brutal attack at the hands of Hindu radicals in the town of Nizamabad, Andhra Pradesh, located about 300 miles east of Bombay in central India.

During this violent incident, a mob of over 100 Hindu radicals cheered and yelled in support of the attack on Pastor Aharon, inciting the rest of the crowd to turn against him. Police stood by as the extensive attack was being carried out, and the constables even prevented the pastor from escaping. Only after Aharon could barely hold himself up did police begin to escort him from the tumultuous scene.
Pastor Aharon, who has led 700 Hindus and Muslims to Christ and has established 12 churches in this community, has outraged radical Hindus and Muslims. When a VOM contact asked Pastor Aharon what was going through his mind during the attack, he said, "I remembered Christ and many others persecuted for their faith in the last twenty centuries."

Every month The Voice of the Martyrs reports on what is really happening around the world where our brothers and sisters are persecuted for their faith. Now you can receive a free subscription to The Voice of the Martyrs award winning monthly newsletter. You will be inspired, and even discover practical ways to get involved. Sign up today!
Please pray for this Pastor, that his strength is renewed everyday by the Lord Jesus Christ. God bless him. Thank you.

    Rosemary, I for one do not attend any church. My only Church is Almighty GOD thru Christ himself. I fully understand the Bible, I understand the parables and their hidden meanings. Before I picked up the Bible and started reading it, I kept talking to God and explained that I could NOT trust any man here to tell his truth. So when I read the Bible, I was SHOCKED to see how it says do not trust any man and to put your trust and faith in him. I am being taught by the Holy Spirit of God the father thru his Holy Son. I read the Bible plus other documents not listed in the Bible. I literally DEPEND on God to guide my life and teach me all his ways. You learn alot when you depend on him with faith, trust and love. He's the righteous one, he knows all. I don't.
