The Conversion Agenda

"Freedom to convert" is counterproductive as a generalized doctrine. It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful. Hence, religious conversion undermines, and in extremes would dissolve, that individual autonomy and human freedom.

Southern Baptists Pray for Destruction of Hindu Temples

January 20, 2005, 12:12 am

The website of the International Mission Board (IMB), a branch of the infamous Southern Baptist Convention, is calling for American Southern Baptist missionaries to visit a prominent Hindu temple in India and pray for its destruction.

The mission assignment entitled “Jericho Prayerwalk” calls for missionaries to visit “one of the holiest temples“ once a day (at differing times) to walk around the complex praying for the people group. Pray specifically that the walls to the Gospel message will collapse like the walls of Jericho in Joshua.” In other words, missionaries should pray that all the local Hindus convert to Christianity and that their temple will be destroyed.

In the past, the Southern Baptist Convention distributed 30,000 copies of a handbook just before the most important Hindu festival of 1999, Diwali, stating that ''Hindus seek power and blessing through the worship of gods and goddesses and the demonic powers that lay behind them."

The missionary assignment can be viewed online at: http://going.imb.org/vim/Step_1/Details.asp?JobID=74546

To anonymous,
all he's trying to show is how christian bigotry is spreading messages of hate towards hindus...if a bunch of muslims walked to a christian church praying for its destruction...you would wet your pants!
