Manu Smriti 1.31. “But for the sake of the prosperity of the worlds he(god) caused the Brahmana, the Kshatriya, the Vaisya, and the Sudra to proceed from his mouth, his arms, his thighs, and his feet.”
It is a derogatory and condescending to call someone a Dalit or a Dalit Christian. This idea of “Dalit Christian” is borne out of a pervasive influence of Hindu culture. We must reject and refute this repulsive teaching. There are two inherent problems with this notion of classification or grouping.
- First It denies Genesis account of the creation of man. God created Adam the first man in His own image.
Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
We are all descendants of Adam therefore, we all are of one race and one caste. We all human beings are either “Brahamins” or all “Dalits”. If Dalit means low, untouchable, depraved race then according to Romans 3:23 all humans are depraved and fallen short of the glory of God. It is an attack on our Fundamental doctrine of creation. Therefore, we must oppose and reject this repugnant classification of mankind.
2. Second this classification of Christians discredits what Christ has accomplished through his death and resurrection. It undermines and belittles our glorious status in Christ Jesus. It is an assault on our doctrine of Salvation. We must militantly defeat and dismiss this abhorrent unbiblical categorization of Christians.
We would like you to pray for our Church in HP, INDIA. The Church got started in 2008. Last Sunday during the worship service a group of Hindu Militants attacked our Church Pastor and the small congregation. They abused him and beat him up. They have asked him to leave the town, since he is living in a rented house. He has two little sons. They have threatened his landlord and asked his landlord to move him and his family out from the house.
Please pray for him and his family and the Church people. It is a very small group of 18-20 people. The authority of the town did not even care to help him nor did the police.
RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal are Hindu Militant groups. They have been persecuting and attacking Christians all over India. Even though these groups are not in majoritybut their population is growing and there are people who can be classified as silently excepting it or their conscious does not bother them. They have facists agenda: One group, one religion, one language. RSS is a Hindu terrorist group. Its believes that humanity has only one faith and one culture that is Hinduism. It has a very simple slogan
These groups have infiltrated the police force, government offices and other high offices of India. They have political entity called BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). They believe India is for Hindus only. They have falsely accused Indian churches and pastors of converting people by giving money. No charges have ever been proved in any places. India government does not give any protection to Christians. More people have been killed or injured by these Hindu Militant groups than any other Militant groups in the last ten years. Extremist Hindu groups are offering rewards of money, food and alcohol to mobs to kill Christians and to destroy their homes in India, according to aid workers in the eastern state of Orissa.*
US and Great Britain must bar members of two radical groups widely linked to the worst anti-Christian violence witnessed in India since Partition from entering the country. Since these groups are funded by the sympathizers and well wishers living in UK and US and Hindu groups based in these two countries.
*The US-based head of an organisation that runs several orphanages in Orissa, one of India’s poorest regions, has claimed that Christian leaders are being targeted by Hindu militants and now carry a bounty on their heads. “The going price to kill a pastor is $250 US dollars,” Dr Faiz Rahman, the chairman of Good News India (GNI), said.*
*A spokesman for the All India Christian Council (AICC) said: “People are being offered rewards to kill, and to destroy churches and Christian properties.”*
