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.

Accountability of K.A.Paul's Evangelical Organizations Questioned

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, an accreditation agency for Christian nonprofits, revoked the Andhra Pradesh-born, Houston-resident evangelist K.A.Paul's "Gospel to the Unreached Millions " group's membership earlier this month, said council president Paul Nelson.

The council was concerned that Gospel to the Unreached Millions did not have a functioning board of directors, that it did not have proper financial controls in place, and that it had not responded to the council's demand last fall for documentation. The organization had been a member of the council since July 1998, Nelson said.

"We are not representing that (money) was going someplace bad," Nelson said. "We were not comfortable with the environment."

K.A.Paul's other evangelical organization, Global Peace Initiative never registered with the council, which has a voluntary membership of about 1,150 evangelical Christian groups that comply with its standards, Nelson said.
