‘On Saturday, at a time most families would have been busy with dinner, one family in Delhi was preparing for a bizarre mass hanging, gathering wires and ordering what turned out to be their last meal.
There was "no outside role" in the deaths of 11 members of the Chundawat family, establishes security footage exclusively accessed by NDTV, and notes in 11 diaries written over 11 years. There's evidence that the family didn't expect to die, that they had believed they would "emerge stronger" after the ritualistic hanging.’ (NDTV). Heart-breaking to read. Particularly heart-breaking because I know a Savior who was willing to “hang” - hang on a Cross voluntarily so that the door of Salvation, serenity in my inner self, sin-cleansing can be opened for me, a sinner who was living a life of living hell and going to a literal hell. His name? Jesus Christ - the only God in flesh (John 1:14; Col. 2:9, The Bible)! He said, “I am THE way” when it came to going to Heaven (John 14:6, The Bible). Salvation is found in no one else says the Bible categorically (Acts 4:12, The Bible). Jesus loved me and gave himself for me, the Bible declares (Galatians 2:20). He loves you - no matter who you may be or what you may have done. He loves everyone. Come to him in repentance (Luke 13:1-5). Come to him in faith (John 1:12). Come now (2 Cor. 6:1-2). Instead of ‘hanging’ - hanging out with Jesus makes life very sweet amidst of all the usual life storms of suffering for “he is a friend who sticks closer than a brother!” (Prov. 18:24, The Bible).
