(Worthy News)-- Upon returning to their church from an Easter sunrise service on April 5, a pastor and his congregation met a mob of Hindus who had hung two nationalist flags inside the building.

According to Barnabas Aid, when the Christians took the flags down, Hindu nationalists gathered outside and raised another flag. The Hindus then demanded that the pastor stop the Easter service and come with them to a Hindu temple.

Police later rescued the pastor and allowed him to resume the service.

In a report released in April, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom noted an increase in the abuse of Christians in India; the increase was attributed to the electoral victory of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party in 2014.

  1. Why would anyone equate "Easter" with following Christ (the Jewish Messiah)?

    Why was a Pastor using the name of Ishtar, aka Easter, for a supposedly Christian service?

    And why was anyone surprised that God allowed it to be interupted, several times.

    When we follow other gods, our God, who is a jealous God, calls us back to Him.

    • Easter is no longer equated with Ishtar anymore than Thursday is equated with Thor.
      Where have you been for the last two millennia?
