Bharat Tamore. Bharat Tamore who? Bharat Tamore, a steward at the Taj Hotel, Mumbai who lived in the sea-facing village at Bhadwar Park, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai. At 9:30 pm on 26 November 2008 he saw 10 young men who were unloading massive school bags and huge carry bags at the shore from a yellow speedboat. When he questioned them they said they were students (Story from “People Special Edition” Mag, Dec 2008, page 23). And Tamore believed what they said with sincerity of heart. But they those guys were not students. They were the TERRORISTS who just coolly walked in different directions of Mumbai, shooting people on the streets, the Main Railway Station, a Hospital and a couple of Five Star Hotels with impunity and gay abandon. Sincerely believing in what is not true can prove to be very dangerous, as we can understand from the above event. Instead of believing in the Truth, Jesus Christ, if we sincerely believed in our own wrong philosophy or religion, we would be greater danger – the greater danger of going to eternal, ever-burning hell. The Bible says, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:16; 16:25). That means that way we sincerely believe to be true to save us can be wrong and that wrong belief can land in big trouble ultimately! Who is the true way then? Jesus Christ! He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life!” (John 14:6). The Apostles took Jesus at his word and preached that there was no other name to be saved (Acts 4:12).
