All in the sake of THE name

Why oh why, must we fight among each other? For we are created from the same creator. But only our beliefs are different.

Of late, the Catholics in Malaysia tried very hard to publish the name, "Allah" on their monthly magazine mainly for their non-english reader, the Indonesian Christians,the Sabahan and Sarawakian who are Christians.

Their request are simple but it was so hard for the Malaysian government. Their application was rejected, appealed to the High Court and was approved. However, it was rejected again by the High Court as the situation turned chaotic.

Churches were burnt because of there was fear the Catholics will convert them. They felt that their right as Muslims had been tarnished.

Christians are living in fear and are on alert. Because, we know that this is one of the sign Christ is coming back again.

Luke 13:13 - All men will hate you because of me,

Likewise, we have to prayed for those who persecute us.

Matt 5:44 - I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Ps. As a Christian, I just shared my views of what had happened. If this issue condone any sensitiviness to your beliefs, please forgive me.
