Service or religious business?

Service is giving without taking anything. Business is taking more than what you give. Be it Tsunami in east/south India shores or Gujarat Earthquake or Bihar floods, Missionaries find the victims of natural calamities as an easy prey for conversion. Take name of Jesus, recite Bible verses, then only we will give you food and clothes… Change the religion, bring all your family members to Christianity, then only we will give you a new boat and a fishing net… Tricks abound. Missionaries are a black dot on the Christianity and Jesus, who, taking his name, do business of religion.

I know, you won’t believe this news about the soft spoken, well dressed good looking fathers and nuns with bibles in hand and cross hanging in the necklace, right?
