Church Service disrupted by religious fanatics
Pastor Christopher Bhonsle ministers at Mahanaim Church in Begusarai, Bihar. Worship started at 9:00 AM and around 150 believers were listening to the Word.
At around 12:45 pm, Police along with religious fanatics entered the sanctuary and demanded that they stop the Worship service. Pastor Christopher was adamant and said that he will not stop until he finished sharing the Word.
Pastor Aby Mathew, Indian Mission, was the guest speaker and the fanatics started shouting and yelling and demanding that the Pastor stop the service. Worship service was stopped by police. However, the believers stood in one accord and they continued praising and worshiping the Lord. Later, the Police and the radicals left the venue.
In the evening, Police contacted Pastor asking him to produce the tax returns copy. Clearly, the intention is to harass and intimidate him.
Pastor Christopher has faced many attacks in the past and was also beaten up. He is a man of God, a true leader, humble and strong-willed – determined to continue to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ against all odds.
Church, please pray for Pastor and the congregation “not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good”.
Pray for greater freedom for Christians to practice their faith openly without hindrance and intimidation from religious fundamentalists and local administration officials.
