How the Gospel of Jesus Can Free Someone from the Fear that Comes with the Traditional Hmong Religion
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the traditional Hmong religion and the impact that it has on the Hmong people. By examining the Hmong religion, this thesis will show that the Hmong religion is currently holding the Hmong people in fear and away from the true God. Satan uses the various aspects of the Hmong religion, Shamanism and ancestor worship, to make this happen. Then, this thesis will look to the Scriptures to find the biblical answer to the Hmong religion and the fear it brings. Finally, this thesis will give the Christian response to the Hmong religion and how the gospel can free someone from the fear that comes with it. To reach my conclusions, I read various books and journal articles. To hear about the topic from a Christian Hmong point of view, I turned to various Hmong pastors of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Their knowledge and outreach to the Hmong helped this thesis present the negative side of the Hmong religion and how to communicate Jesus in a meaningful way.
