I have a question, God warn us not to get deceived cause the days are evil so how can one can be careful if someone is unaware about religious practice done by hindus, as many of them have intention to just support their country’s leaders, coming from hindu backgrounds??
I want to use this illustration:
Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged to light candles and diyas for nine minutes at 9 pm Sunday on 5th April to “defeat the despair” brought by the coronavirus pandemic.
In his previous address on 19 March, the PM had asked people to clap, ring bells or clang utensils to applaud the healthcare personnel, who are treating Covid-19 patients.
Some claims that :
PM’s numerology” over number 9 was mentioned — the announcement was made at 9 am Friday morning, which lasted 9 minutes, and the lighting of candles will take place on 5 April (5+4 [the month of April]=9) at 9 pm for 9 minutes.
The message further said Modi’s address coincided with the 9th day of the lockdown, and on 5 April, there would be 9 days left for the 21-day lockdown to come to an end.
There were others who linked the move to Hindu festival Vamana Dwadas.
Dr K.K. Agarwal, former president of the Indian Medical Association, shared his theory to support PM Modi’s plan.He said the PM’s request for everyone to come together and light diyas is based on “Yoga Vasistha Chapter 6”, referring to the principle of collective consciousnes.
Almost whole Indians did this and most of my Christian friends supported our honourable P.M. Modi without knowing its hinduism religious intentions behind it. Some Christians claims it is all astrology and we should not do that. I personally didn’t do anything cause I don’t like any of such things apart from what God tells me to do. But, I was not aware the numerology solidarity behind this.
We know nothing of this matter, only God in His humble mercy can saves the whole world and we are praying.
My Concern is this how Christians who comes from hindu backgrounds and shows lot of respects to their leaders can avoid such things if they are just new believer (cause they neither know hinduism or Christianity well)??
They don’t know how to discern God’s voice and they do the things to support each other and bring harmony.
It feels like a trap at times how world is deceiving us and people are doing without the intention behind it.
Kindly share your inputs.
