Hindu mark on forehead!

Question Text:  I am a Christian and have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I got converted from being a Hindu.  Is it appropriate for me to wear a dot on my forehead, even if it of a different colour.  Does this have any Religous Meaning.  I have also read that wearing a toe ring has religoud significance, is it appropriate to wear this as well.

Answer Text:  Your question whether the mark on the forehead used by Hindus has any religious significance can easily be solved if you just do a search in the net for your answer.   Typical statements that you come across in your reading will be like the following.  “This mark has a religious significance and is a visible sign of a person as belonging to the Hindu religion”. In times past only gods and priests had this sign on them.  Later it was given to all who came to worship at the temple. As days went by, people who had idols in their houses used it after worshipping the idols.  Now mostly ladies use it in different colors and it has come to the level of just a beauty spot as well.  Whether used for religious reasons or as a beauty spot, a believer in Christ NEED not go for it at all.   God hates idolatry to the core because it misrepresents Him to the greatest extent.  The people of Israel were warned NOT to bring any relics from idols to their home how ever costly and attractive, so that there may not be a curse given to them (Dt.8:25, 26). The same goes for toe ring as well.   Coming to the NT we read that “all that is not of faith is sin” (Rom.14:23b).  As a believer in Christ, you have to make sure that you do only such things which do not create a doubt in your own heart or in the hearts of others who watch you.  May God bless you as you seek to live a life acceptable to Him.  To His name be all glory.  Amen.

Waiting For Answers

I have had a few email exchanges with an atheist Guru who claims to have a best seller on the subject.  In my email exchanges with him, he was very generous and answered all my questions except three which I am giving here for any one else to answer. 

I said, “In all your mails you did not answer my three questions.”  I went on to say, “I hope you will give me answers to these questions”.  I did not get a reply from him as yet.  Some one reading this might like to answer me.  ok.
Qn1.  Produce ONE person other person than you, who had an over-night transformation from drugs,  sex, and gutter like you had, by trusting  in self, or in some thing,  or in anything other than in Jesus.  (In his deconverson story he says that he had trusted in JESUS and that he was transformed over-night in his late teens from drugs and sex etc. But now he says that it was in himself that he trusted and not in Jesus. Now he says that it was the ‘power of faith’ that saved him and not Jesus.) 

I said, I would show him millions aroud the world who could testify that Jesus changed them over-night. I am asking for just one person who had an over-night transformation like that with out Jesus and the Bible.
Qn2. Tell me the names of SOME THING, ANY THING which do not exist other than God and the spirit world (as you say they do not),  and yet men every where have been talking about it non-stop from time immemorial even until today.
3.  Show me ONE individual who produced similar results as I have produced for a whole life time, but trusting in some thing or any thing other than the God of the Bible.

I said I could show him numerous people like myself all around the world who subsisted by prayer. (See my post ‘Maruthy Omni’ to read about  how I got the car which I run now. Could any one produce similar results by trusting in ‘any thing or some thing’ or trusting in self?)  For my experience in constructing a concrete building in thirty days with out a human sponsor and other experiences in prayer see my blog-site .

 Thanks for taking time  out to read this post.  I am waiting for answers.

Have a great day!
