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.

WorldHelp, the infamous US based evangelist group that attempted to airlift 300 Muslim Tsunami orphans to raise them as Christians, has announced plans to build over 1 million churches in North India.

Earlier this month, World Help announced their "To the Ends of the Earth" program to establish 100,000 organized churches and one-million house churches in North India. World Help's Eric Vess says, "The vision of World Help is to help plant indigenous reproducing churches where no churches currently exists." Vess says that's where Strategic Ministry Partnerships with North American churches come into play. "Strategic Ministry Partnerships" is a way of involving the local church in this project at a partnership level. Pastors told us that this strategy was just what they were looking for their churches.” says Vess.

Vess says these partnerships get the North American church directly involved in church planting by sponsoring a church planting team for a period of three years. Vess goes on to boast that each church has a fixed cost $500 per month and every year about 86 villages in India are converted to Christianity. He notes that their plan to convert India to Christianity is already underway: 3,000 churches and many times more house churches have already been completed.
