What is CAFN?
CAFN stands for Christian Apologetics Forum [for] Nepal – Research and Ministry.
Apologetics is easily misunderstood and simply confined to debating with people of different faiths, hence it carries the awry connotation of “always disagreeing or debating against” with those who do not share the same faith. Here, we want to take Apologetics to a new level of understanding which is defending your faith by communicating the biblical world and life view effectively without compromising with the core teaching of the Bible. We emphasize conversational apologetics - an evangelistic warm relational approach with love, grace, and mercy.
This is simply a blog that seeks to inform Nepalese Christians and seekers about Christian life and world view, provide resources and educate about Christianity in nutshell. As people from Eastern Religion do not rationalize everything as in the west, some of questions and issues raised in the West seem very irrelevant to our culture and society. For almost all religious people group in the East, especially in Nepal, it does not matter whether the Vedas are true or not. Any Hindu devotee never doubts of his/her 330,000,000 gods and goddesses ever existed in the world. Or, if Gautam Buddha taught certain philosophy or not! They never bother to ask if the sacred books are contradictory or full of error.
The school of thought in the East is completely different than in the West. They do not have problem in believing anything if that is referred to sacred books or priests. So, the issue in the East that needs to be addressed is lesser philosophical but more existential one. What we have posted in this blog might seem off the topic sometimes. Nevertheless, it is always good to know about people of other faith and cultural background to share your faith with them.
We are here to inform you what we believe and why. And we also want you to think why you believe certain thing what you believe. Since, this blog tends to be a forum for our Nepalese Christian believers, you may want open discussion on anything related to Christianity. Also, you may post devotions, questions, reply to, and publish articles here.
