Catholic leaders in India defend the new bible and insist that it will bring many people closer to God, not just Christians. (For the full story, see the Christian Post website at http://christianpost.com/article/20080811/new-indian-bible-draws-fire-over-hindu-references.htm .)
Pastor Vijay Thomas, who heads a Bible college in Chennai, told Christian Today, “By making it appear ‘Indian’ with references to Hindu scriptures and great poets, people will not come to the truth. This is a complete turn back from the real Bible."
Sounds like the compromise of the Emergent movement is emerging in India. We need to pray for Christians in India to be able to get the true gospel message to the lost in that country.
