The Christian Post – Stoyan Zaimov – November 15th, 2015

Nepalese Christians pray during their National Convention in Kathmandu April 20, 2010. The Nepalese Christians demanded the timely drafting of the constitution.

A Christian ministry in Nepal has reflected on the changing political currents in Nepal, and noted that as room for preaching the Gospel has grown, so has “false teaching” coming from groups such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and prosperity gospel preachers.

“When there was persecution, professing the name of Christ was very costly, but since the government became secular there’s freedom, and because of that there’s a lot of false teaching coming in, so it’s imperative that they know what true teaching is,” one ministry director working from Nepal said in a press release shared by Christian Aid Mission.

“With Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, prosperity gospel and others coming in, that problem is increasing, and the people that they are shepherding need to get fed the truth of the Scripture.”

Nepal recently affirmed a long-time ban on proselytizing in its new constitution, outlawing “any act to convert another person from one religion to another or any act or behavior to undermine or jeopardize the religion of another.”

The Christian missionary group, which assists 12 ministries in Nepal, said the good news for Christians is that a petition by hardline Hindus to restore Hindu monarchy and ban all religious conversions was rejected.

Hindu extremists have been openly hostile to foreign Christian missionaries, ordering them to leave the country following a series of church attacks in September.

The extremists have been attempting to influence the government, which has declared the country to be a secular state.
