On day2 of IPL12 (24 March 2019), the big story was Rishabh Pant’s 78 off 27 balls in the Delhi Capitals Vs Mumbai Indians match at the Wankhade Stadium in Mumbai. At one point, he had 0 runs from four balls in this innings which is the four-fastest IPL innings ever (innings of 20 balls or more). The way he did not spare, the world’s best bowler now, Jasprit Bumrah, was a visual treat. He even hit a helicopter six off Bumrah.

When it comes to the fight for biblical doctrine, we do not have to spare anyone. Just because a popular person, or a big pastor, or a influential man of God (so-called) preaches a false doctrine, it does not mean, we just keep quiet. Apostle Paul was Peter’s junior. Peter accepted Jesus much before Paul and was in the ministry much before Paul. But when he spotted casteistic behavior in Peter, Paul opposed him to the face. The Bible says, ‘When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned’ (Gal. 2:11). Even if an angel preached a Gospel other than the Gospel which the apostles preached (Peter/Paul/James/etc), we must oppose that Gospel tooth and nail, the Bible says (Gal. 1:8). These biblical examples motivate me to fight false teachings like hyper-grace, immortality on earth, even though some big, popular “big” pastors preach it.

Rev. Dr. Duke Jeyaraj is a trained Agricultural Engineer [B. Tech from SHIATS, Allahabad, India], who did not pursue a career in the line of his education but nevertheless enjoys growing cacti in the balcony of his flat, during his spare time! He could have been a cricket commentator but prefers to wrap Bible Truth around cricket magic moments and other interesting-to-Google Genners contemporary events. God’s call upon him made him utterly restless and he obeyed that call to by founding the Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission (G4 Mission) to finally find serenity after having served as a International Bank Customer Service Executive/Youth Pastor/Bible College Teacher/Missionary/Youth Mag Editor. G4 Mission is not a church but an inter-denominational ministry to present-day people, a ministry which Duke works full time for, as an itinerant presenter/preacher since 2008 putting to use the formal theological training he received from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore [M. Div & Doctor of Ministry]. Duke is called ‘dad’ by Dale (16) and Datasha (12) and ‘hubby’ by Evangelin and calls Hyderabad, India, his adopted home. Duke has preached by invitation beyond his national borders (we are talking about nations such as Bangladesh, Singapore, Germany, Nepal and the United Arab Emirates).
