This refers to Ms. Ann George's message (2) in digest No.1388, wherein she
advocates for attending the evangelical meetings.
As has been seen in and around us, most of the protestant evengelists
start with a worship prayer, praise and beautifully prepared Bible study,
and thus attracts the poor, innocent believers from other churches.
Initially one will feel that it is not harmful, but feel better than our
worships. But later one will be dragged towards their doctrine, and poor
believer will start questioning his own church belief. It depends upon the
individuals involvement towards this new found doctrine,and finally he
will not have no other way to stay back with his original churches, but
forced to be with the new one.
Upon my observation of such people, it has been found that they are all
with mild mind set. Such people will be attracted towards anything new.
They can't be firm on their belief. Such people were reluctant to involve
in their own church affairs, and have a inferiority complex in their
group, becuase of their own actions. They will find more involved with
these new found group of believers, and the leader of that group will see
that such people should be given prominence in all its activities of their
faith related activities. They imbibe a complex upon these poor
individuals, and they become prey to their hidden agenda of increasing the
number of their group members. One more thing I would like to add about
these people. If they go to any other religious places, like temples or
mosques with loud musical backgrounds, such people will dance immediately
after hearing it. They will forget the world even during that time.
Dear Sr. Ann, be careful while interacting with such elements. Stick to
your belief. Understand that just hearing a sermon will not amount to
acquiring an eternal life, your actions will. You try to understand the
meanings of our prayers, which are so beautifuly written. Nothing in this
world is beautiful and meaningful than our prayers (such as premyons and
Sedras, and prayers of important days). If one concentrate and try to
understand our prayers fully will never be attracted towards the
protestant pastors beautiful and sweetened words.
