R B Jagadish

Daijiworld Media Network – Karkala (EP)

Karkala, Sep 11: Police cases are registered at the town police station here against 30 Hindua Jagran Vedike (HJV) activists who barged into Pragathi prayer centre at Nakre Kukkundoor here on Friday September 10 and Benedict, who is alleged to be indulged in religious conversion.

Sunil (20), a resident of Kuntadi, has lodged a complaint at Karkala town police station in this connection. In his compliant, he alleged that Benedict, a resident of Halekatte, who had realized that Sunil, a follower of Hindu religion, was facing financial hardship, had visited him at the bus stand about two months ago and enquired about his welfare. Benedict and another person had visited the residence of Sunil and said that all of his problems will be solved if he converts to Christianity. Sunio also alleged in his complaint that they had made fun saying that there are thousands of Gods in Hindu religion. “There are various high castes and low castes among them. Pray to the Christian God,” Sunil has alleged in the complaint adding that they had given him a small crucifix before leaving.

They had asked Sunil to come to Pragathi center in Nakre on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. Likewise, about 70 people had gathered in the house when Sunil went there at 9.30 am. “Benedict had spoken lightly about Hindu religion and their God and said Christianity is the greatest of religions,” stated Sunil in his complaint to the police.

Benedict has also lodged a complaint against the HJV activists. He has stated that about 30 people illegally barged in into the prayer centre being run by Mangaluru based group near Nakre, Kukkundoor when prayers were in progress. “The activists hurled expletives at the praying women, men and children and assaulted them. They have also assaulted a woman and threatened to kill him and others who were praying,” he has stated in the complaint.

    Before Judgement because of God's infinite Mercy for those who do not Him, as it is not their mistake, a mini judgement to all to choose between Good and evil. Soon A Warning, Two Asteroids collision in the sky, and a mini judgement (life review), people will have a real taste of their future destination heaven or hell in a recent message to John Leary dated Tuesday, September 7, 2021: ....... Jesus said: “My son, you have been out evangelizing people so they could be converted for over 25 years. Now the time to bring people to Me is growing short before the coming Warning and the tribulation of the Antichrist. Your mission has been to help save as many souls as you can, and the time to save people from hell is running out. The devil and the media are controlling the minds of many people, but My power is greater. So call on Me and the Holy Spirit to help you every day to have people understand that they are both body and soul, and made to My image with a free will to choose between heaven or hell. My Warning will wake up every person to realize how I will judge each life with your life review and your mini-judgment when people will have a real taste of their future destination. If you love Me and repent of your sins, you will be on the narrow road to heaven. But if you ignore Me and refuse to repent of your sins, you will be on the broad road to hell. In heaven you will enjoy being with the One you love forever. I have shown you hell where the demons are tormenting souls and the souls there are like black embers who are suffering the flames forever with no hope of escaping. Those people, who are on the road to hell, will have a taste of this suffering, so they can see what their life is choosing. My faithful will have a chance during the six weeks of conversion to try and convert these souls when there will be no influence of the devil. Pray for the conversion of souls and reach out to give them My Blessed Mother’s brown scapular, so she can keep them from suffering the flames of hell when they wear and believe in the brown scapular’s promises.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/?cat=3&order=DESC

    I am not a holy person. God says He is holy. And says love thy enemies as you love thyself. Here in your comments you spew great enmity towards other denomination's. Scriptures of the holy Bible are our food. Man will not live with food alone but every word comes from God. Praying and preaching the Gospel is wrong? You are siding with the commandment breakers and murderers . I find no fault in Benedict. Perhaps Hindus also have come for prayers . Supposedly they wanted to embrace Christ Jesus do you object. Hindus coming and praying is wrong in the church is wrong. If that is the case in Catholics churches many places many Hindus are coming. Should we throw out devout Hindus from the churches. See in our Catholics churches Bondel, Karkala and our Catholics churches and other churches Hindus are flooded to offer prayers . Is it wrong? I think you are supporting and loving HJV, Ok, that is good at the same time you hate your own brothers. At this grave situation where do you stand. We have once learned lessons from church attacks and the whole government administration stood behind the attackers. Dear brother open your eyes and mind of brain. Suppose your own daughter fall in love with a Muslim boy or a Hindu boy what is your reaction and comments. May God bless you. My payers for you Numbers 6: 24-26

    @ Jeeth Dsouza, Mangalore, You say the new life are destroying families , How? Why one should separate from the families since they are preaching the word of God. Have you done so. It is every Christians duty to proclaim the good news (Gospel) of Jesus Christ. Preaching the good news is brain washing? Ridiculous. It looks to me your mind is corrupted. Families are destroyed because of alcoholism. See in Mangalore how many have lost their land, properties, houses the vested interest of the people have captured just for a drink. Ref Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Pray earnestly, humbly, righteously and truthfully your diseases will be cured. Kindly stop complaining and don't spew venom against each other. I find no fault in the writings of David Pais, Mangalore

    If Sunil’s charges against Benedict are proved then he is liable for prosecution. Hurting sentiments or belittling other religions, promises of healing diseases, offering monetary help and brainwashing, taking advantage of one’s weakness and compelling him/her to convert is not the right way of conversion. True conversion should lead to transformation of conscience which involves preaching, explanation, answering questions, convincing and finally acceptance of the faith, which normally takes 3 to 6 months.

    Anybody in a democratic society should be free to choose which club, association or organisation they would like to become a member of. They may change house colours multiple number of times, as long as they do so of their own free will/consent, having understood the benefits and disadvantages of doing so.//// Don’t dissatisfied politicians change their coats depending on which way the power and money blows? ////Force, coercion, cheating and duping is a matter to be dealt with, like all such matters, according to the criminal and penal code.//// The reason vigilantes roam the streets is because there is no Rule of Law & Justice in India(this is nothing new).////We may be reminded of how the denizens of the N. Sentinel Islands(who do not subscribe to Indian laws) speedily despatched John Chau, a Christian missionary, to meet his God. Within their law they are right but within the tenets of a civilised nation’s laws their act is criminal./// It must be understood that all Abrahamic dogmatic ideologies have one goal in mind and that is to convert everybody to their ideology(some do it by hook and some by crook)///Yes, the 21st century (as against the primeval and medieval)Roman Catholic Church is not as fanatical as some other Christ-ian sects but to live under the impression that the RCC does not have its own fanatical elements who actively engage in finding people to convert , would be to fool oneself.////The Hindu belief is like Water, you may add many colouring agents and solutes to it but it still remains Water. Thus a real Hindu can remain a Hindu and yet go pray at a Vailankanni Church or an Ajmer Sharif Dhargah. But the other way around is among the rarest of rare cases.//// For those who are capable of thinking: I recommend this 45 mins discussion between Akash Banerjee and Devdutt Pattanaik on the YT channel Deshbhakt. Title is Political Hindutva Vs Hindu Dharma: Devdutt Pattanaik in conversation with Akash Banerjee .

    First of all why this Sunil, devout follower of his religion invited Benedict to his house and listened to his sermons, accepted the crucifix and then went to the Christian prayer center. First you eat the cake, enjoy it then complain that the cake was rotten. This is the reality in most of the cases when you try to help someone in distress outside one's own religion. It's nothing but hypocrisy.

    @ Satish, Udupi "This is Hindu nation. Those who don't like can go to Portugal and hold prayer meeting there" Then why Hindu brethren are spreading all over the world especially in Christian countries seeking better prospects and settle permanently ? Were their forefathers belong to those countries where the have chosen to settle. Minorities forefathers were not the migrants from other continents. we too have Indian gene & blood and other aspects of what Hindu brothers have. Never differentiate on adopted religion. Remember that if you leave this world with such attitude, your Soul may even fight even after the death but Satan has only one option to push where you belong to. God may pic us if we have done good deeds while living. We cannot understand the Gods power. !

    I am a law abiding citizen of India and I believe everyone has a right to follow his own ideas on God and so the religion. Its is an Indian's constitution given right, to chose his way of life. It is not criminal for a Muslim to adopt a satwik life or for a Brahmin to eat meat. But definitely morality too plays a role.

    Coming Divine judgement on the earth message to John Leary dated Tuesday, August 31, 2021:.......... Jesus said: “My people, you use your phones to keep in touch with one another, so in this vision of an old dial-up phone, this is My sign that I am always calling you to keep in touch with Me at Mass, in your prayers, and when you receive Me in Holy Communion. I love all of you as you are My creations, and I want to be close to you in everything you do for Me. My son, I know how much you love Psalm 27 when it speaks of how you seek to be with Me in heaven. You truly will desire to gaze on My loveliness and contemplate My love in all of My creation in heaven. In the Gospel you saw how I cast out the evil spirit from a man because I am much more powerful than the evil spirits. They are like little flies that I command to leave. The demon knew that I am the Holy One of God, and he was fearful of Me. So have no fear of the evil ones who may seem to have authority in this world, because I will soon cast all the demons and evil people into hell. You will soon see My victory in the Battle of Armageddon, and I will bring My judgment on the earth with My Comet of Chastisement that will fall on the earth and the demons and evil people will be cleansed off the face of the earth into hell. Then I will renew the face of the earth and I will bring My faithful into My Era of Peace as your reward for being faithful to My service.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/?cat=3&order=DESC

    One should understand the difference between them and the actual Catholics. These people belong to the so called NEW LIFE sect which has got different branches again under it. And yes they do go around the intention of converting people into their SECT by showing money. I too have encountered one of them who told me that the way we pray in church is wrong, this and that and a whole bunch or B@##%&#. And yes they speak in a degraded manner about other religions. So i dont blame those activists. Manny SUCH PRAYER halls have popped up in villages and outskirts where people are vulnerable to such nonsense. I am a catholic and we have never heard of conversation talk in churches. I really hope our Hindu brethren understand the difference between those morons and Catholics.

    How do you know they are from New Life or any other sect? The news says Sunil was given a crucifix. Protestants don’t worship before a crucifix or any statue. So this Benedict must be a staunch Catholic. His method of conversion (if true) is totally unacceptable as per teachings of Christianity.

    Dear fake Ramakrishna almeida, first write your actual name...dont take name of catholics and spoil their image..first ask your brethern to eradicate the Manuvadi samskriti. then everything will go alright..but I have even seen educated Hindus praying with full devotion in churches..the very atmosphere, discipline and real God converts their heart...they find more peace in church..so probably they get converted in heart not in religion.. so shut your filthy mouth and have your morning cow pee dose

    Mr. Almeida, if advertising of products and services not wrong, so is professing and practicing faith. Its allowed as per constitutional rights prevalent in most of the secular Countries. No product can be sold forcefully like wise, no one can be forced to covert. If professing is wrong, why ISKON Hare Rama hare Krishna mission preaching all over Christian countries making their deciples?

    Dude !! Are u aware that youths from our community are disenchanted.. becoming agnostics, eastern cults, even embracing atheism ?? Many have moved over, to other denomination's in Mumbai and across various locations in India... Christianity is alarmingly in a downward spiral, especially in the predominantly western nations !!! Is this not a wakeup call for church ?????

    What is conversion? What is religion? When we were born did we born with religion? All these brands of religions are just making money including every religion without bias whether it is 5000 yrs old or 2000 yrs old or 1500 yrs old. Jesus christ is not a religion. I am a follower of Jesus christ. I am not following religion but following Jesus Christ.

    Veer Nagpur,I find Benedict should have not discussed with Sunil about thousand Gods or ask him to convert into Christianity to solve.Instead simply attend to his needs if Possible .dont lure with money to convert.Other side I doubt Sunil was a needy Person or was sent by xxx agents to sue him.Otherwise the HJV activists would not get any infos.Otherwise why were these all of a sudden there during prayer time?Best is Sunil complains against Benedict..Something is wrong here.

    Why few sections of Christian society are trying to convert others to Christianity. Other religions don't do it. Is it said in Bible to covert people to. Christianity? Why bribe and convert. Does Christianity require such type of brand marketing. What do they know about Islam and Hinduism? It's a shame on those who spoils the name of other good Christians who are devoted only to God more than politics. Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam is not only religion but teaches many facts of life the same as Christianity...... Then y few non Christians want to convert people to Christianity

    Sunil’s statement is not valid enough to prosecute the defendant. He on his own contacted Benedict and sought his help from financial difficulties. So what’s wrong in Benedict suggesting his point of view and also explaining about number of God’s in the religion which is a fact. There is nothing illegal in this. It is upto Sunil to take it or reject it. But I don’t think there is any guarantee that Sunil’s financial hardship will be solved once for all if he converts to Christianity again it’s upto Sunil to make that choice on his free will. If Sunil doesn’t like it he should ignore Benedict and take a different route and move on. There is nothing to make a mountain out of mole hill here and HJV activists have no place here in any form. It’s strictly between Sunil and Benedict. HJV are like Begani Shadi Mei Abdullah Diwana.

    Please don't drag Roman Catholics every time in your comment. As per my understanding anyone who wish to become a Roman Catholic needs at least 4 to 6 months to prepare himself and it's not an overnight business. Further, Roman Catholics don't roam around the streets looking for people to convert. First you improve your knowledge and then comment.
