My Google news alert for “missionary” just turned up a news report from the state of Assam in north-eastern India about indigenous Christian missionaries allegedly setting fire to a Hindu temple. According to the report “under the guidance of their pastor they attacked the temple of the goddess Kali and set the idol on fire”. Apparently since the mid 1990s people are being forced to embrace Christianity by coercive methods such as Bible distribution and the use of questionnaires! We should pray for the thousands of believers in India seeking to reach their neighbours with the love of Christ. They face many false accusations and distortions and experience great persecution .
