I personally have known
several missionaries to India,
one of which was killed in a traffic accident in India.In her early ministry she had adopted two
throw away very young Indian girls. What a difference Christ meant to them as they
grew up to be fine young Christian women.Instead of being left to try to survive on the streets of Bombay they were raised
by a loving “Auntie Eileen Edwards.”
There is no shortage of
deities available in that land where by nature the people want something bigger
than themselves to worship.
One of the better known
Indians was Mohandas Gandhi who was educated in England at the University College
London where he studied law. The Cow was venerated by Gandhi He said: "I worship
it and I shall defend its worship against the whole world.”
central fact of Hinduism is cow protection.Gandhi regarded her better than the earthly mother, and called her "The
mother to millions of Indian mankind." It was said as he lay dying they
brought a cow into his room where he grasped the tail while he died.

Christ came as the lamb of GOD he died the death for all sinners of the world,
past, present and future. Instead of being bound to that which can only keep

The Holy Cow neither has nor
can do anything for me but the lamb of GOD accomplished it all.
Where the one has failed the
other has prevailed. Where one is dead the other is alive and well in the
I didn’t need the “Holy Cow,”
what I needed was the “Holy Lamb of GOD” Jesus Christ.
It is easy to forget to be
thankful for what Christ has done for us but just thinking about the gods that
other nations worship - - sobers me and stirs me to repent and give GOD the
glory HE so richly deserves.
