Ramayana Month and inculturation trend

via GSK Menon published on July 19, 2009

The Ramayana Month observance is the latest addition to the list of imitations (inculturation) by the Church. Has the Malayalam month of Karkkidam any significance in the Bible ? At least if December was fixed as the month for this imitation it is understandable ! December 25th has been declared as the day of Christ’s birth, though it was actually a Roman festival day. It was usurped and imitated as the birthday of the so called Christ. Nobody even knows if such a man existed. His execution date is also not known., if ever there was such an event.
So what is the purpose of reading Bible in imitation of Ramayana ? All those geographical places in the desert have no relevance for us.

 I saw the TV news in Asianet, a Hindu lamp has been lit and some converts were reading from the Bible. What is the meaning of such imitations ? Of course one evil idea is to facilitate conversions. Hindus should constantly remind the converts that all such gimmicks are disapproved of by the Biblical gods. The beginning sentence of the Bible is sufficient to enlighten any person that the Bible does not allow any Heathen practices. Terrible punishments are promised for the violators. What purpose do these meaningless imitations serve ?
