1 Corinthians 6:19, "Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?"

Few days back one Catholic Priest sent an email the subject was "Declaration" in this email he wrote, "We the People of the United States are very upset and enraged with the way our government is handling the Palestinian Question. We refuse to be part of the terror being waged against the Palestinians."

Then further he wrote, "We are enraged because:

Our president and his administration take our tax money to supply the war machine of the war criminal Sharon who is killing innocent civilians and making us accomplices to the crimes committed in the Holy Land while millions of American kids go to sleep hungry every night and the government claims there is no money.

Our president and his administration refuse to recognize that the rage coming from Palestinians stems from 35 years of occupation, humiliation and oppression by the Israelis

Our president and his administration are making erroneous statements about the nature of the suicide bombing as stemming from "religious evilness" ignoring that Palestinian resistance has transcended religious lines to include Christians and Moslems."

Isn't it a strange comment from a Priest? It is not humiliation, oppression or occupation by the Israelis but it is the sinful or fallen nature of human being that makes a person to commit this type of crime. This type of crime is not from God but from devil who is the father of lies. Bible very clearly says that those who will destroy their own body, God will destroy him/her.

And there are people who are opposing the seize in Bethlehem at the Church of Nativity which is the 4th century Church and it is believed that Jesus was born at that place. How much people care about those buildings that are built by human hands but the same time they do not care about human body. Many do not even care to blow it up. God has given the precious life and we do not have any authority to destroy our lives.

If we can care about our Churches which are built by us then how much we should care about the temple of God where God literally comes and dwells when a person gets salvation and filling of the Holy Spirit? Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are."

God has not given this body to misuse it but to glorify His holy name. Let us make our bodies holy and acceptable to God so that God may bless our lives.

Suicide Bombing - A way to heaven?..

By Sheela Isaac

Today we hear allover in TV News or in newspaper about Suicide Bombing. People in Israel are living in fear of suicide bombings. They do not know what will happen and when? I heard the news that most of the people are trying to stay away from market places and Restaurants.

One side we call ourselves as modern time people, we live in a modern society but other side we see the horrors of evil. The evil which world has never seen or experienced before. The question is why this evil is taking place? Why people are willing to kill themselves readily? Why they have no fear of death? Why they want to blow themselves up? Why they want to kill innocent people?

I heard in TV news different views of several Palestine people.
One woman said: Many more suicide bombers will rise up.
One man said: If I do not find my two teenager sons alive I will become a terrorist and blow myself up.
One 10-12 year old child (who was wounded by bullet shot) said: Someday when I will grow up I will blow myself up.
Somebody said: I want to become martyr.

A man said: I am so proud that my elder son became martyr (Note: he killed many by suicide bombing). I wish that all of my sons too become like that.

One Hizabullah leader said in TV interview that they do not call it suicide bombing rather it is a martyrdom.
(taken from cbs news):
News Reporter: I want to ask you about suicide bombers. Do you agree or disagree that this is evil?
Hizabullah leader: We call them martyrdom operations. We don't call them suicide operations because suicide comes out of a loss of hope in life, while martyrdom is a love of life.
---------End of the quote---------

When you read all these things what thoughts cross your mind? Don't you think that how they are under the influence of Satan or Devil. We can understand that how Satan has taken hold of these people. How Satan has fooled these people. How Satan is controlling their minds. It looks that all Palestinian people are ready to blow themselves. They are ready to kill themselves and want to kill 10-15 innocent people with them.

Question is from where these evil thoughts came in their minds, what made them to become suicide bomber? Who brain washed them to committee suicide?

Surprisingly you will find answers in their own religious books. Quran and Hadith speaks about killing Jews and Christians. It speaks about Jihad or Holy war. It speaks about martyrdom aka suicide bombing. It speaks about reward for suicide bombers (martyrs) i.e. 72 virgins and river of wine in heaven.

A quote from Anwar Shaikh:
And Jihad is the most sacred duty of a Muslim because it guarantees him a safe passage to paradise where no fewer than 72 houris, that is the most beautiful virgins, and pearl-like boys wait for him. Such a reward is a great temptation!”

Now you can understand why Muslims are getting mad to become martyrs, because they have been deceived by the promises given by Quran and Hadith. How sad it is.

But look in the Bible, contrary to Quran Bible clearly speaks that no unholy thing could ever enter in heaven. murderers will not inherit heaven.

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
Gal 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Eph 5:3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;
Eph 5:4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

You may call suicide bombing as martyrdom, but it does not make any difference. If you keep bottle of poison and call it medicine, it will not become medicine. It is still poison. If you are knowingly killing yourself and others is murder. Bible speaks very clearly that murderers will not inherit heaven. Killing and murder is a nature of Satan. Bible says that Satan is a father of all evil.

John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Quran speaks about martyrdom and killing other people to attain paradise, but Bible speaks about holiness and salvation to reach heaven. This is the major difference in teachings of Lord Jesus Christ and Mohammad. Quran speaks about x-rated and filthy paradise, but Bible speaks about a heaven which is most holy place where people will worship God. There will be no filth or carnal things existing. Quran speaks about a carnal paradise, but Bible speaks about a spiritual paradise (heaven).

Think about it, which paradise do you prefer. The holy one or filthy one. The spiritual one or carnal one. If you want to reach heaven that is holy one, that is spiritual one, that is a place of peace and joy. Then look toward Jesus. Only Jesus Christ can help you reach there. Jesus Came and died for your and mine sins. He shed His precious blood on Calvary's Cross so that we can have our place in heaven. Jesus did not say to kill anybody. He did not say to do this and do that to achieve heaven. But He himself came down to die for you and me. He himself paid the full price for your and mine redemption. What a great love. He does not require anything from us. But He says "will you give your heart to me, will you accept that sacrifice that I made for you for your sins." If you will say yes, He will come and cleanse your life from all evil and sinful things. He will wipe away all your dirty and filthy past. He will wash away your sins in His precious blood. How ever grave your sins may be He will cleans them. He will say "I no longer remember old things, behold I make all things new."

Yes this is the great assurance for a person who comes to Christ. Do you want to miss this great opportunity. No, I do not think. Jesus Christ is standing at your hearts door knocking. Will you open your heart's door? Will you say Lord I am ready to accept you as my Lord and Savior. Lord I want a clean life. I want a life which is without guilt and shame.

Pray this prayer with the bottom of your heart:
Lord Jesus I believe that you died for me. Lord I know that you paid the full price on Calvary's cross. You died for me. You shed your precious blood so that I can have eternal life though your shed blood. Lord I confess my sins. please forgive my sins in your precious blood and make me whole. Please forgive me. Make me your child today. Lord I want to lead a holy life. I want to walk in your ways.

Reader's Mail

Dear Bro.Vinod / Sis.Sherly N. Isaac
Please take care to comment on any hot issues as CSI news letter reaches around the world! The present Israeli-Palestine conflict needs more careful analysis instead trusting only on the media reports.........

Prayer Request

At 10am this morning I received a prayer request from church. Cathy Mitchell, who attends Spring Hills, called in to our secretary. Her husband, Tony, is an Air Force Commander in Afghanistan. She received an urgent email from him this morning. It said, "We need Christians to pray, pray, pray. We're in a Blood Bath here!" Please pray for God's protection of our troops and HIS wisdom for their commanders.

Dear brother in Christ Jesus our Lord, We thank you for your prayers. The Lord is mercifully caring for us and guiding us in His work.

Please continue to pray for us that our dear Lord may keep us humble and obedient to His voice and always
ready for His glorious return.

Please pray for the local believers of Amritsar and the believers of the villages Rajasansi, Nangli and Rorhi. In each of these four places about 20 to 30 believers meet regularly for worship, prayer and Bible Study according to Acts 2: 42.

Please pray for the villages Dadupura and Muradpura where we conduct weekly Gospel Meetings that more people may be saved and regular worship meetings can be started in these places. Also please pray that the Lord may help to take the gospel to many other villages in where we have an open door.

Pray for Sheranwali Mill area where there are many migrant labourers from the tribal areas of Bihar. Some of them attend our meetings in that area every week.

Please pray that these people may understand the Word of God and come into the experience of salvation. Please pray for the Amritsar City. More people from among the well-educated class may be saved and we may start a regular fellowship among them in English.

Please pray for the Defense Personnel and University students among whom we have weekly Bible Study meetings.

Please pray for us. We will be leaving for our native place, Nagercoil in South India on 30th of April and will reach home on the 4th of May. From there I will be going to Singapore on the 7th of May to attend a one-month Seminar conducted by Haggai Institute.
