PADA: Worship of Jesus is not bad in itself, if done properly. However, there are many unscrupulous folks making a false show of religion in India, or even in the USA for that matter with some "magic healing" TV programs and etc. And that includes some really sentimental Christian programs as well as a number of bogus Hindu God men.
There was a secretary at one place I visited and we got into a discussion about religion. She showed me some footage of her church's "speaking in tongues" program, and it looked a lot like some of the footage we have here. OK its good that they want to connect with God, bravo for that.
Yet the process has to be substantial and authorized by the Supreme, or it can drift off into very sahajiya or false displays of religious sentiment. At the same time, I have to say that some of their focus, enthusiasm and dedication is something we should learn to borrow from. I was a security guard at a Christian faith singing and dancing program in a big auditorium once upon a time, with various musical performances. And everyone singing loudly and jumping up and down, and it was quite inspiring because of all their faith and enthusiasm. We certainly need more of that!
At the same time, some Hindu scholars have pointed out, Hinduism is going to find itself in trouble if they do not make a plan to include for example the Dalits and other alienated groups, because they will convert to Christian or Muslim faith and become independent of the India culture. Srila Prabhupada said that the artificial brahmana by birth monopoly program has destroyed the culture in India, and unless that is fixed, then more folks will drift off the Hindu platform and become more engaged in another process.
Of course that process has also happened in ISKCON, many devotees gave up on ISKCON and drifted into other programs for the same reason, the top heavy monopoly of false authorities ruined the religion and created an exodus. ys pd
