Why it’s the best and worst of times for India’s burgeoning churches.

The world’s most unexpected megachurch pastor might be an illiterate, barefoot father of five.

Bhagwana Lal grows maize and raises goats on a hilltop in Rajasthan, India’s largest state, famous for its supply of marble that graces the Taj Mahal. He belongs to the tribals: the cultural group below the Dalits, whose members are literally outcasts from India’s caste system (and often called “thumb signers” because of how they vote).

Bible Verses out of Context

Patrick Mabilog got it right here.  Read is latest from Christianity Today.

Of all the literary pieces that have existed all across time, there is none that has received as much attack and ridicule as the Bible. And in every time that the Bible has been abused, it was taken out of context.

Many atheists, liberalists and even Christians have claimed that there are parts of the Bible that are obsolete, redundant or flawed. However, that is far from the truth because it is complete and perfect in every way. The only reason why people find flaws is because it is taken out of context.

The saddest part of this all is that it’s not just non-Christians that use the Bible out of context, but many believers have also become guilty of taking some scriptures in the Bible out of the original context.

There is “no place” in the country’s constitutional traditions for the idea that the state must be neutral between religion and its absence. “To tell you the truth, there is no place for that in our constitutional tradition. Where did that come from?” he asked.  “To be sure, you can’t favor one denomination over another but can’t favor religion over non-religion?”

He also said there is “nothing wrong” with the idea of presidents and others invoking God in speeches. He said God has been good to America because Americans have honored him. Read more of this post
