SIKHS MOVING TOWARD CHRISTIANITY

POPULATION

The total Sikhs population around the world is estimated to be 26 to 30 million Approximately out of which 24 million Sikhs reside in various states of India.

According to the Census Report 2011, the population estimated was 20 million and there has been a significant increase in the population.

If we look at the present situation in Punjab which holds the majority of Sikhs, there has been a rapid increase in the conversion ratio of Sikhs converting to Christianity but the question is whether yes or no majority of Sikhs who converted to Christianity still have Sikh as religion on papers but intend to practice and follow Christianity.

Therefore, the population figures shown above are still questionable

PEOPLE WHO CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY

We have a few examples of Sikhs who converted to Christianity but still have the same religion on record

  1. Monty Singh (46yr): He said even though he is a Sikh on paper but he feels Christian at heart
  2. Happy Kaur (22yr):  She is also on the list of people who converted to Christianity but still have the Sikh religion on paper.

However, there are many, and are likely to be increased from 1.5% (last recorded in the 2011 census report) to 15% in the coming years.

CONSEQUENCES

Demographic changes in the state have increased since the last census that was announced 12 years ago, however, these changes are now increasing drastically at the national level which is a big reason to worry.

HOW DO THEY OPERATE

There are many organizations that are working towards building churches and spreading the word of the bible with a massive amount of funds that they receive from around the world.

Unfoldingword is one of the organizations that operated during the lockdown even though they were not able to meet people publicly outside, they started praying for the unsaved people that they know about, and from there they started following up by WhatsApp and other messaging apps.

According to the sources such organizations were encouraging every church and 10 individuals to spread the help to villages and start converting them to Christianity, it was also said that around 50,000 villages were adopted by these converting mafias during the lockdown.

Another successful step in doing the massive conversion is by translating the bible text through JAARS (Jungle Aviation and Radio Service) which helps in translating the languages according to the targeted area.

There are other missionary groups like RAN which gets students from all over India and give them Biblical education after completing the education they return back to their own communities and form a link with the local churches after which with the help of monthly gifts and salary they are motivated and are placed in church planting group.
