What Did They Do Wrong?

From Crosswalk:

India: Christians Beaten for Refusing to 'Re-Convert'
Special to Compass Direct News

Ostracized by their village for the past year, two converts of a church in Madhya Pradesh state’s Shahdol district have been beaten for their refusal to return to the Hindu fold.

Santu Prasad Barmaia and Kunjan Prasad Barmaia, both farmers and members of a Gospel for Asia church in Paralia village, were attacked by a group of 12 villagers on October 19.

The attack took place in the morning, when the two were on their way to their fields, a local Christian requesting anonymity told Compass. Both men suffered internal injuries.

Police have not arrested the culprits, the source said, in spite of the fact that the victims named them in a complaint filed at the Amarkan police station.

Police officials could not be reached for comment.

The source explained that villagers were angry with the Christians for declining to participate in Hindu rituals since receiving Christ four years ago. “The villagers had been persistently putting pressure on them to ‘reconvert’ to Hinduism,” he said.

Okay, Benny, what did they do wrong? Not enough faith? Not enough money sent to Benny Hinn Ministries?

Joel, this was definitely not their "best day ever." Where did they err? Maybe they didn't smile enough? They forgot to declare that God wanted to bestow His favour on them and give them preferential treatment?
