1.     Pathian rin avang in natna a bo dawn lo.

Joba ak kha harsatna chi  tin reng a kal tlang a nih kha,mahse khatiang harsatna leh rilru natna ka ah, a thian te leh a nupui thleng te pawh in an dem na kar ah khan a ni kha chu Pathian a rin na ah a nget tlat mai a nih kha. A taksa na te kha na a ti lutuk a.

Job 1: 18,19
A la sawi lai mêkin mi dang a lo tlân leh a, “I fanu leh I fapaten an u ber ina chaw an eia uain an in laiin, 19ngai teh, thlalêr aṭangin thlipui a lo tleh a, in chu kil li-ah a rawn nam a, nula leh tlangvâlte chu a delh a, an thi ta vek mai. Kei chauh hi hrilh tûr chein ka lo chhuak thei a ni,” a ti a. 

Job 2:9,10
21“Ka nu pum ata saruakin ka lo piang a,
Saruak vêkin ka kîr leh dâwn a nih hi.
Lalpa chuan a pe a, Lalpa chuan a la leh ta a nih hi,
Lalpa hming chu fakin awm rawh se,” a ti a.
22Hêng zawng zawngah hian Joba chu a sual lo,
Pathian a sawichhe hek lo.


Hêng zawng zawngah hian Joba chuan Pathian a sawi sel lo.

Hêng zawng zawngah hian Joba chuan thu sual a sawi lo.

Harsatna kan tawh in eng tin nge kan awm,  Pathian rin zawk kan thlang ve dawn em Job a ang khan tih hi kan in ngaihtuah theuh a ngai a ni.
Keini Chennai a awm te pawh nikum ah Tui lian kan nei, tun kum cyclone, Nakum ah eng nge lo thleng leh dawn kan hre lo mahse Pathian nen chuan eng mah hlauh tur kan nei .

2.     Harsatna kar ah Pathian kan rin avang in kan harsatna chhan kan hre kher lo ang.

Joba bu kha kan han zir chian chuan, Job a kha mi fam kim, mi puitling leh fel a ni. Mi fel leh rinawm a nih vang khan Pathian khan a malsawm a ni. Joba kha Pathian khan a chhuang hle a, Setana a fiah tir ngam a nih kha. Joba khan a harsatna leh hrehawm kal tlang na chhan kha a hre kher lo, mahse Pathian a ring tlat. Thih hial te kha a ngaihtuah a nih kha. Harsantna leh hrehawm na hian mi hausa leh mi rethei a thliar lo. Keini ring tu te pawh Pathian a kan rin tlat chuan Pathian in min veng in min enkawl tlat dawn a ni. Pathian hian harsatna leh thlemna kan zawh loh tur min pe ngai lo a ni. Hman deuh khan Hurricane Katrina kha Florida lam ah a tleh a, mi thenkhat chuan an sual avang in Pathian in a hrem a ni ang an ti, chutiang bawk chuan keini pawh Tuil lian leh Cyclone harsatna te kan kal tlang, Chennai awm mipui te kan sual vang a ni kher lo.

3.     Harsatna leh hrehawm na kar a Pathian fak hi talent chi khat a ni.

A tu a pawh Birthday ni ah te, Christmas ni ah te, Kumthar ni ah te Pathian hnen ah lawm thu sawi a awl  a ni. Mahse harsatna kar ah Pathian fak te, mi sawisel tu te Joba ang a tawngtai sak thei kha chu a ropui hle a ni.
Joba khan Pathian hian mi a veng tlat a ni ti a chiang em em a ni. Joba kha pathian tan chuan a nunna hlauh kha a hlau lo, Pathian a lo kal leh dawn tih a hria tlat.  Pathian ah a rinna a nghet em em a ni.

Job 19:25-
    Mi tlantu chu a nung tih ka hria,
Nakinah chuan vaivutah hian a lo ding ang.
26Ka vunte hi a chhiat hnuin
Ka tisain Pathian ka la hmu ang.
27Kei ngei hian ka la hmu ang a,
Ka mit ngei hian amah tak chu a la hmu ang.
Ka thinlung a chau ta,

4.     Harsatna hian Pathian min hnai tir zawk

Joba a khan a hre lo mai thei a, harsatna a kal tlang nasat avang khan Pathian eng ang mi nge a nih a hriat chian phah. Harsatna leh hrehawm kan kaltlang hian Pathian kan hnai phah a ni. Han ngaihtuah ve teh u.

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God – NECF Paper Presentation

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God – Paper Presentation on 3rd December 2016 for Northeast Christian Fellowship Madras Christian College.



Some of the issues which because of not seeking the kingdom of God but desires of the world, which leads the youth astray are:

1.       1.       Drugs and Alcohol – While alcohol has been around before Christianity, the missionaries who came did not encourage it, however due to proximity to Myanmar and golden triangle, drugs is not difficult to find and many youth have died of drugs over dose. Many of the youth in Northeast do not live to their’s 30’s because of the influence of drugs.

2.       Pre marital Sex & Promiscuity – Due to impact of social media, TV a lot of the youth are involved in immorality which tends to lead to HIV Aids infection, unwanted pregnancy having a heavy toll on society with lots of orphans, single family and poverty in society.

3.       Anger and short termperdness – There is a tendency among the northeast youth to be short tempered, quick to hit others and fight with each other, which is a contrast with those living on the mainland. This could be due to factor of our northeast culture where a fight evern between friends or enemies is a fair fight where they fight each other with all their friends looking. When they come to a city like Chennai and fight, it becomes a gang war with the local person brings his friends uncles, which leads to big problems. It’s important for the youth, specially northeast youth to learn to be patient, slow with anger and slower with fist fights.

4.       Peer Pressure – sucumbing to pressure from fashion to drugs and alcohol – This brings us back to Point number 1 and 2, Drugs, Alcohol and promiscous sex. Specially among the youth of today, instead of seeking God, they seek to be cool, they seek to blend in with their friends and avoid being awkward or beeing geeky hence they succumb to pressure from friends to maybe just taste a little bit of alcohol, a tiny little bit of drugs, or maybe a little bit of  promiscuous sexual behaviour, but let’s all remember a little bit of something can lead us to big trouble afterwards, the little bit of drugs leads to drug overdose leading to death, the little bit of alcohol leads to livir damage and death, the little bit of promiscious behaviour leads to AIDS and death – Peer pressure is understated but very dangerous which keeps us from seeking the Kingdom.

5.       Pride –  Living in Chennai, Tamil Bhramins are famous for being vegeterian and their sense of superiority due to the Bhramin lineage and cultural links. Even though we, the tribals of northeast would be in the bottom of the caste system here in Tamil Nadu, We have no sense of inferiority, infact coming from a casteless society, we in fact have developed a sense of superiority over the main land people whom we call mayangs or vai’s. It could be because many of the mainland people working in our states are engaged in labor or maybe it’s because of our inferiority complex, but whatever it is, it is important to keep our pride in check and learn to live in humbleness and respect other culture. Pride keeps us blind from seeking the kingdom of God.

6.       Retain our Cultural and religious identity – Christianity is not a western religon, it is a local religon for everyone, we must promote our culture through our Christianity without compromising our faith. Many of our youth are taken to thinking that seeking the kingdom of God is akin to Idolizing all of western culture, while western culture has a lot of posisitve impact, it’s important to not discard our own cultural practisce , dharna’s, architectural and art from our own culture’s. In mizoram before the missionaries came, Mizo’s had a Dharna of tlawmngaihna, wherein people would help each other irrespective of their background to build a house, dig a grave, protect a person without any expectation of financial or any compensation whatever, this practisces which do not conflict with our Christianity of helping others, honesty must be continued on. Our way of worship, our house of worship and the dress we wear to worship are all part of our identity and we need to seek God in a simpler way which will help us identify and get closer to God to have a better undertanding of God.
