Root Cause of Corruption in India

​​Dear Narendra Modi ji,

Greetings in Jesus’ name!

I am an entrepreneur-inventor with a business plan to raise an investment of about $30 Million (₹201 Crores) to set up a business here in Vijayawada, India. On ethical grounds, we chose India—my native country—as our destination because it is a laboring state that stands to lose both blue-collar jobs as well as white-collar jobs to Artificial Intelligence.  AI is a competing technology to my patent pending invention, namely Super-Augmented Persona, which augments the user’s capabilities rather than substituting them as is the case with AI. Therefore, we believe it is a boon to a service economy such as India.

In the process of dealing with various people on the ground in setting up our business, I have noted that the root cause of corruption in India is due to idolatry, which subconsciously causes people to have no fear of God because these gods have eyes but cannot see, have ears but cannot hear, and have mouth but cannot speak. As you are a champion for eradicating corruption in India, I am writing this letter to you.

Idols are also impediments to modernization. I believe when we reduce the living and true God to an image or an idol of our making, we are putting restrictions on our perception of who God is and our minds don’t look further. We stop thinking, having got the “darshan” of a supposed god. Indeed, the Bible teaches us that idols are a “snare” and that we will become like them if we worship them. But it is the invisible yet living God that causes our curious minds to think and imagine. And it is this thinking and imagination that is behind every modern society.

“God is spirit and His worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth” (Lord Jesus Christ). The Bible records in Acts 17, Apostle Paul’s statement to idol worshipers: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious…we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the divine nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”

Just as we do not allow a filthy person into our homes, mankind is corrupt and therefore unclean to enter into the presence of a holy God. But God is love and He so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; 1 John 4:8). The Lord Jesus Christ is Son-of-God-in-flesh to mediate for us reconciliation with God. He laid down his life for us as a sacrifice to pay the just penalty for our sins, in order that we may enjoy eternal life.

America, with its post-modern culture, is in a losing streak. In the capacity of a Servant of the living God, I can attest that India is at a threshold of seizing a great opportunity of winning the favor of the one and true living God and embark on a journey of becoming the new super-power sans any hollow feelings of cultural superiority.

Let’s relegate the idols to museums and ensure that India catch the tide of becoming the new-superpower!

God bless you and your efforts at eradicating corruption in India!

Respectfully,

Caleb Suresh Motupalli
