  1. I'm from india , kerala
    No need to worry brothers. Nothing will happen wrong as u all think.
    The problem is india has different culture, different ritual , different language, every thing is different between each states.
    The state except kerala , is facing large threat from hindu(RSS, BJP ) communities.
    The pastors, missionaries from all over the world including kerala are still moving to preach gospel all over.
    Like paul from bible said, our focus is to spread gospel of christ to world. We dont consider any threat or even death . Our aim is to fullfill the love for christ .
    Our king jesus is coming, repent from sin , be born again , and seek his glory.

  2. Hey i’ve been beaten, kicked, pelted with sticks, stones and humanwaste, blaimed for crimes i didn’t commit … and my only crime is fitting all the descriptions of the Son of Mary and Joseph!


    Jacob struggled with both God and men to receive his blessing and overcame, so the Lord blessed him and renamed him 'Israel' because he didn't give up (read Genesis 32:29-32). The Lord God was letting Jacob know that he must work hard for his blessing and He crippled Jacob as a humble reminder that it was not by his own strength that he won, but by God’s grace (Ephesians 2:8). This all happened to teach us, the children of Jacob, the same lesson. So it’s not going to be easy to inherit our blessing. We must suffer many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God just like Jacob did (Acts 14:22). He struggled 20 years with Laban for his wives and property (Genesis 31:41, 42) and he had to endure many family problems, including the loss of Joseph for 20 years (Genesis 34 – 49). But if we persist like Jacob did and humble ourselves by following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Israel (who overcame the most), we will win the prize of eternal life. So “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38) "Overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us." (Romans 8:35-39) "But thanks be to God, for He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:57)

  4. I pray he makes it home safe. Unfortunately this is only the beginning.

    John 15:18-27 King James Version (KJV)

    18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
    19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
    20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
    21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
    22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
    23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
    24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
    25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
    26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
    27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

  5. As an Indian Christian, I am so sorry that this happened. Our country is not the same. Americans need to realise that Modi and hindutva ideologists such as Sang Parivar and RSS are trying to suppress Christianity as they see it as a religion that entices people to convert. We have an anti-conversion bill that was passed into a law. Religious freedom has been deceptively suppressed ever since. But wherever Christianity is suppressed or Christians are persecuted, it seems to spread more…. I think India is witnessing a secret rise of Christianity that is not even accounted in our census data. A lot of people refuse to declare their conversion our of fear.

  6. I would say ,India has been a tolerant nation with all religions living in peaceful coexistence. our ancestors were converted generations ago to Christianity..We are all updated about the current events happening in the Vatican ..The Vatican is a multi billion dollar industry today & we are aware what the Roman Catholic Cult created for power & control worldwide & amass properties across the globe in the name of Christianity ( religion). Also aware of the lives of Pastors like Benny Hinn,Creflo Dollar, the list is endless..Live in million dollar mansions travelling in private jets & their prosperity gospel taking the braindead believers for a ride..The supposedly pastors reach India ,but they have their hidden agenda. Is it easy for a Hindu to get Visa to the u.s & preach Hinduism & if there is a problem & he gets stranded, will you put the heading…All he wanted was to preach about ( ?) Mostly,in India,the illiterate,the poor are now targeted for conversion..It's taking place everywhere & frauds are getting arrested..Also,because of social media, the frauds are getting exposed as the video goes viral …
