Preaching truth through lies by Christian missionaries

It is not unusual to be cheated by an insurance agent or a representative of a finance scheme. They talk sweetly, paint a rosy picture, but distort and  conceal a lot. Hearing somebody narrate his tale of woe does not evoke much surprise. These stories are common place globally.
  But what about those who are supposedly seen as god-men, preachers.... People expect them to speak truth.
I had heard that christian missionaries use inducements and prayers (dua), run schools and hospitals for conversions.
But telling lies! That is atrocious and shameful. It is unbecoming of a man of religion. Getting obsessed with the idea of  converting pagans and heathens to Christianity can make the earth hell "here and now" in the misplaced hope of "saving" them and securing a seat in some imaginary heaven and that too after death.
One such example of the lie doing rounds in the villages of Punjab is a fake rhyme in the name of Guru Nanak. The Christian missionaries have fabricated this hymn and they say that it is from Guru Granth Sahib. In this hymn they try to convince gullible villagers that Eesa (Jesus) is Waheguru  and  that Guru Nanak has told the world to worship that Eesa.The hymn (fabricated and not part of Guru Granth Sahib) reads like this:

                                             Eesa jo bhagwant hai jaisey pati narayan
                                            Nanak uss ko simriye jo jinda gaya asmaan

                                                 ਈਸਾ ਜੋ ਭਗਵੰਤ ਹੈ ਜੈਸੇ ਪਤੀ ਨਾਰਾਯਨ
                                          ਨਾਨਕ ਉਸ ਕੋ ਸਿਮਰੀਏ ਜੋ ਜਿੰਦਾ ਗਯਾ ਅਸਮਾਨ
(These lines were quoted to me by a christian missionary from Punjab ( mob: 09780244932) and the recording of the conversation is with me)

This means that Eesa (Jesus) is Bhagwant, Master and Narayan. And Nanak says: remember the one who went alive to the sky.

Does Guru Granth say anything like this? No! Who goes to sky alive? Guru Granth's Waheguru (God) is formless, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, does not take birth, is fearless, is impartial and without enmity. Wahehuru is not god of chosen people. He is God of grace. He is God of entire humanity.

It is indeed deplorable that people can be so mean and cheap, especially those who profess themselves to be preaching religion to people.
