Bro. Sudhakar,

I don't know how many talk shows you have done/given on Rakshana TV. I missed them all. Only yesterday I got to see one episode. That was great. However, your take on Nephilim seems to be running against both Scriptural and Apocryphal data. Both Cainite and Sethite views have been demonstrated to be lacking evidence. Sometime ago I emailed to you a question on Gap theory. In reply you said it is unbiblical. I beg to differ with you on both issues, with deference. Both are interrelated. Thank you and hope to see some more shows.

Bye.

D. Sudhakar

 

My (Sudhakar Mondithoka) Response 1:

 

Thanks very much dear Sudhakar.

 

I have done some 10-12 so far (according to my convenience) and we have copies available in HITHA office (DVDs).

 

We will meet and discuss these things (I only gave a brief answer and I can explain that matter more clearly to you) and the other issue also we can discuss. Please send me what you have in terms of evidence for what you are saying first and then we can meet.

 

I sent you mails about the courses we are offering at HITHA and I hope you got the info about the recent course on "Biblical Archaeology and Apologetics"!

 

The Lord bless you.

 

In the Lord and His Mission,

Sudhakar

Prepare to be persecuted

Christians need increased awareness about issues facing people of faith at home and abroad

By Mags Storey|Monday, October 17, 2011

 

OTTAWA, ON - People of faith need to do more to learn about how Christians are persecuted for their beliefs worldwide, and how to handle being persecuted ourselves.

 

That was the message Sudhakar Mondithoka, director of the Hyderabad Institute of Theology and Apologetics, hoped to get across to Canadian Christians this fall when he was in Ottawa to speak on "the theology of persecution." The events were organized by Voice of the Martyrs Canada (VOM) - which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year - and the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC).

 

"One thing which has been neglected in the Church," says Mondithoka "is a biblical understanding of persecution and how Christians ought to respond.

 

"If we read the New Testament, Jesus made it absolutely clear that the world would hate His disciples. So He did everything He could to prepare them, and teach them ahead of time. So I think we need to educate Christians and tell them they should anticipate [persecution], and be prepared to face it."

 

Part of Mondithoka's work in India has involved teaching Christians about their rights and how to navigate the legal system.

Trinity: A Biblical-Theological Analysis PDF Print E-mail

Introduction: Trinity is the distinctively Christian understanding of the nature of God. It is the most enigmatic of all Christian doctrines. It is the most difficult and yet one of the most important doctrines of the Christian faith, because it is concerned with what God is like in Himself in His very being and other vital things (or truths) like our salvation and the deity of Jesus Christ. Trying to understand the Trinity is, in one sense, trying to understand the nature of the God of the Bible. If we understand something fully then it is not God. We can understand God only to the extent He gives us self-disclosure and our limited faculties grasp it. This means that we might only see hints and hear rumours of God.s existence and nature from the world around us, but only God.s revelation of himself gives us a deeper insight into His nature and that there is bound to be mystery in our understanding of what God is like. Stanley Grenz says that grasping the concept of God as triune is the most difficult one out of the different aspects of our Christian understanding of God. He thinks that this is closer to the heart of the mystery of the God we have come to know than any other dimension of the Christian confession. Grenz further observes that the confession that the one God is Father, Son, and Spirit is what sets Christianity apart from the other religions.2
