Dear Online Friend,
The Christian response to the 2014 Indian Election Results varies widely. But one thing is certain that it is God who lifts someone and brings down the other in leadership. Look at these texts from the Bible —
Jer 27:5, “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are on the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whomever it seemed proper to Me.”
Dan 4:17b, “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He wills, and sets over it the lowest of men.”
Dan 4:25c, “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses.”
Rom 13:1, “There’s no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”
When the Tamilnadu Government brought about the Anti-Conversion Bill in 2002, I wrote two articles titled, “Can Conversions be Stopped?” and “How to Multiply Conversions.” These were published one after the other in the Blessing Magazine of the Blessing Youth Mission. These two articles contain practical guidelines for the Christians of India in the present scenario. These are attached here for your benefit. Please take time to read them and forward the same to Christian friends and leaders everywhere.
These two articles are included as two chapters in the revised and enlarged edition of my book, Enlightening Essays, 220 pages, available in English and Tamil, for Rs. 80/- per copy. Forwarding Rs. 30/- within India.
Because the Lord God is on the Throne,
