Artist's earthy shades of India tell many a novel tale of Hindu women

THE HINDU

INDIA---Canvases awash with crimson and earth tones greet the visitor at ‘Crimson View,’ an ongoing painting exhibition by Chennai-based artist-filmmaker Gita, at the Alliance Francaise here. Her works are semi-abstract with influences drawn from the female form, architecture and musical instruments, while they simultaneously explore colour, texture, line and form, she says. “I did a series on Tamil Nadu temple murals so the recent works are a combination of its influences and abstracts,” she says.

BAPTISM OF THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH BY STEVE FINNELL

Why was the Ethiopian eunuch baptized in water?(Acts 8:26-39)

The Ethiopian was not understanding Scripture, so Philip taught him. Acts 8:35 Then Philip....preached Jesus to him.(NKJV)

There were two results from Philip's preaching. 1. The eunuch confessed that Jesus Christ was the Son of God in order to be baptized in water.(Acts 8:36-37) 2. The eunuch was baptized.(Acts 8:38)

What was the reason the eunuch was baptized?

1. Was it so he could be a member of The First Ethiopian Baptist Church? I do not think so.

2. Was it so he could demonstrate his faith to the community? Philip and the eunuch were in the desert, there was no community watching the baptism.

3. Could the reason the eunuch confessed Jesus as the Son of God and was immersed in water, be, because Philip taught him the words of Jesus? Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)
