Story number 1 for 26 Feb 2003

(India)–Topping the news, another election is underway today in India, and anti-conversion laws are one element in the campaigns. Dayspring International’s John Gilman explains what’s at stake in terms of government charter. “It’s very sad that this great nation that has a constitution that allows religious freedom, that they’re being restricted, marginalizing Christians, attempting, in some cases, to characterize Christians as ‘guests’ in the country of India. These are people who are native born, that may have chosen to follow Christ.” Gilman says while beatings are common, their film teams vow to continue showing the all-Indian acted story of the life of Christ on film. He asks believers to remember ministry takes place in the shadow of an anti-conversion law. “Pray for this government that presently exists, that there will be a transformation. There are nearly 100 court cases dealing with religious liberty in India and we need to see some movement, that laws of the land and the constitution will be upheld in this country.”
