    Swami Vivekanand: From a Bible-seekers and social liberty perspective

    Swami Vivekananda: From a Bible-seekers and social liberty perspective Swami Vivekananda, was born as Narendranath Dutta in 1863 and lived for a short but profound life of 39 years. He was given his new name by king of Khetri, Rajasthan. He gained much fame due to his eloquence of speech and his great depth of Hindu religion.

    The perfect mistake

    I was amazed why God did not allow me to change the ‘Word of the week’ for two weeks. I intended to change, yet, when I asked for it, He did not provide His Word. Finally I chose to keep this page as is – thinking probably God has to make that message available to someone who really needed it. Finally, He touched my heart with one very inspiring story from Email Ministry – ‘The perfect mistake’. I have been thoroughly blessed, so publishing it as is, with all due credit to the Email Ministry team. <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <><

    Sin of Commission and Sin of Omission

    Sin of Commission – doing something which God forbade and Sin of Omission – not doing something which God demanded While I was meditating on the Word of God once, I experienced a thought banging my mind – how should I categorize the sins. ‘Big and Small sins’, ‘Exposed and hidden sins’ or ‘Acceptable and abominable sins’ and many more categories passed through my mind in which I could categorize them. Usually, the most soothing classification to our conscious is ‘big and small sins’ as we normally do classify them for ourselves for the ease of living. Though it is much easier to handle, it is not biblical. There are…

    The case for FAITH

    I was called the other day to my supervisor’s office. After probing a bit about the ongoing projects being handled by me, he handed over a small book to me. He said that he wanted me to read it and give his comments, soon. The book’s title was ‘The true message of Jesus Christ’ authored by an Arabic writer (as from the name I perceived). This gesture was triggered by me, since I offered him a copy of my book ‘Encounter with Life’ a few weeks ago to read. At a quick glance, I knew that this soft bound small book is certainly going to give me a different perspective…

  • Commonly asked questions

    I am vegetarian, will I be forced to eat non-veg?

    No. This is a myth. This is not true. Bible does not endorse anything related to eating any particular food – vegetarian or non-vegetarian. My last statement about Prerna must answer this question already. Paul explains in the Bible that eating or not eating anything does not matter because kingdom of God is not about eating or not eating some particular foods. He rather exhorts not to eat a particular food for the sake of a brother or sister of weaker faith who may stumble because of our eating of particular food.
