Worshiping idols at Ratangarh temple in India brought curses down on the area. 89 people perished.

Thousands had gathered at the Ratangarh temple, about 60km from Datia town in Madhya Pradesh state, for a religious festival.

Panic broke out as crowds of pilgrims tried to cross a bridge on the Sindh river, near the shrine.

Most of the victims were killed in the stampede, while others drowned after jumping off the bridge.
Local devotee Atul Chaudhary, who survived the crush, told BBC Hindi there were a couple of thousand people on the bridge.

He heard screams, and people began rushing to get off the bridge.

“Several people could be seen flattened to the ground in the midst of the melee,” he said.

“Some of the youngsters panicked and jumped into the swollen river.

My comment:

There is no excuse for idol worship. For the last 3.000 years the Bible has been available. The Hebrew Bible clearly say that God hates idol worship. All who continue to worship idols will face judgment, and will have to spend eternity in hell.

Psalm 31:6

  I hate those who cling to worthless idols; as for me, I trust in the Lord.

The problem, is that many people have never read the Bible. Nor have they met an evangelical Christian, who have warned about the coming judgment for all who practice idolatry.

 Revelation 9:20

The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshipping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood – idols that cannot see or hear or walk.

Curses is passed on from the parents to their children. You need to break free from these kind of curses, by begging the living God for mercy. Even if your own family members try to curse you, and try to block you from getting a hand on a Bible, you will have to overcome such evil. It is better to run away form home, than to stay put in the devils dent.

Seek Jesus the Messiah and you will find Him. Knock, and He will open the door for You. Amen.
