Christian family vs. Hindu Family Question

Post by globalhealth4 on Tue May 01, 2012 7:07 am

Hey ya'll!

Im looking for input about my in-laws, who by the way are Hindu and they may come to live but for sure visit for about 6months. They have a concern about their prayer and idol worshipping. My husband told them that because we are a Christian household we cant accept the shrine and idol statues in our house, but we cant stop them from praying...just no rituals. I for one feel uncomfortable with all of that in my home, but not them personally. I also think it would be good for them to go to a temple so they wont feel like we are surpressing their belief.

The good thing is that God prophecied that He would save them and one has already been saved.

So, what is the proper way to handle it as I have prayed and still feel like I have yet to recieve an answer!

I think what your husband said to them IS your answer. The only thing is that you both have to stick to your convictions and not allow them to practice their rituals in your home. The one thing I do know is that your stance will minister to them even more than you know and could be the factor to them coming to Christ. If you become shaky and bending here and there there will be nothing about Christianity they would want because Hindu's are one of the most committed religions.

Your witness of "sticking to your guns" will minister more than you know.

Praying for you all and this situation...

Thanks Cholette! I guess I was just looking for a "deeper" answer, when I was given it then. My husband was firm and not shakey when he said it so I should have just let it be. Thank you for praying for us!!!!!!!!!
