 Man cuts off hand for Hindu goddess offering


[b]Man cuts off hand for Hindu goddess offering[/b]

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A 23-year-old Nepali man cut off his right hand after morning prayers and offered it to Kali, the Hindu goddess of power, the Annapurna Post local daily said on Wednesday.

Rajesh Tajpuria, who runs a drug store in the southeastern town of Rangeli, is undergoing treatment at a hospital, it said.

More than 80 percent of Nepal's 26 million people are Hindus who frequently sacrifice animals such as goats, buffaloes and roosters in temples.

 Re: Man cuts off hand for Hindu goddess offering

Wow -- this man is so committed to his false god that he would cut off his hand as a sacrifice. Believers in the West are so uncommitted to the one true Living God that we won't even cut off an offensive television program. We don't cut off our hate, our discord, our pride, our lust, our greed, etc...

Ouch!

I was reading Keith Green's [i]Total Committment: Communism vs Christianity[/i] message at [url=http://www.lastdaysministries.org]Last Days Ministries[/url]. It is more relevant today than when he first wrote it! God help us to be even more committed to our Lord than the people of this lost and dying world!

:-(

 Re:

Good one MSeaman. :-P
Is not a matter of Going to Church, but is a matter of being the Church. Although I understand what jimdied2sin was trying to say.
