Four Christians have been arrested in Nepal, including a United States citizen, months after a controversial law criminalizing religious conversion went into effect in the Asian nation.
On Tuesday morning, police in the city of Ghorahi arrested a Christian society leader, an Indian national, a citizen of Colorado and a Nepali interpreter at their hotel for their alleged involvement in religious conversion by "allurement," according to the NGO Christian Solidarity Worldwide.
The four of them had attended a one-day pastorsâ€™ conference that took place Monday in a local church.

Yes, it is odd the way the world views Christianity. All a Christian does is try to lead people to Christ and to exemplify what scripture teaches as godly behavior. They are normally peaceful and loving to their neighbors and are the first ones that try to help. Since these are Christian traits, then Iâ€™m sure they are true throughout the world.
And yet, the world does indeed hate us which means they also hate Christ without cause.
John 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
Matthew 10:24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
