Varendra Brahman families value higher education. Towards this end, there is a new university in the Varendra region that straddles West Bengal and Bangladesh established in 2012.
Like other Brahman peoples, the Varendras feel that turning their allegiance to another religious system will jeopardize their status. For this reason, they are very reluctant to give their allegiance to Jesus Christ, believing this is tantamount to joining a different religious system.
If someone made close friends with leaders of the Varendra Brahman community and led them to understand the unfathomable glories of Christ, they might be able to find ways to worship him that conform to their culture and don't conflict with the Bible.
"And Elijah came near to all the people and said, How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word." 1 Kings 18:21
Pray that today’s people group will indeed see the vast difference between the Lord and any other deity. Pray that they will follow Him.
Pray that the Holy Spirit would raise up believers who will actively introduce the Varendra Brahmans to Christ and help them to worship him in culturally appropriate ways. Pray for Christ to reveal himself to Varendra Brahman leaders. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement to emerge among every Brahman community.
