I received the following email from someone in

India warning
me about the radical Hindus there who have checked out our web site:

“I write this because the organisation AIM and one of their “adventures
in mission” trip to India was featured on the website of a
Indian
fascist/hindu anti-christian organisation (that’s how i came to know about
AIM). look at this website. It is the website of RSS/BJP which is
India’s right wing hindu nationalists seeking to brand India as a Hindu
nation…you are on their radar now.”

This brings up the following two points:

1. We need to be culturally sensitive in the way we come across. As Americans, we can undo much good done by national Jesus-followers as we go on short-term missions. I’m going to have our staff review what we’ve got on our web site about India.

2. We need to be well-known in hell. The web is an international phenomenon. As followers of Jesus, you and I need to be showing up on a few unfriendly blogs. We need to expect to see our name slandered. Jesus told us what to expect in Matt. 10.
