Christians Working Against Themselves??

Post  fennywest on Sat 07 Nov 2009, 10:48 pm

The Malaysian government has refused to release 10,000 Bibles which it seized because they contained the word Allah to refer to God.
The government, which is dominated by Muslim Malays, claims that the word Allah is Islamic and that its use in Bibles could upset Muslims.
The Roman Catholic Church is challenging the ban in court.
Religion has become highly sensitive in Malaysia, where about two-thirds of the population is Muslim.
Religious minorities have accused the government of undermining their rights.
The government has impounded Bibles before, intercepting 5,000 in March as they were imported from Indonesia.
Church officials say that although the word Allah originated in Arabic, Malays have used it for centuries to refer generally to God, and Arabic-speaking Christians used it before Islam was founded.
The Christian Federation of Malaysia said the religious freedom guaranteed by the Malaysian constitution was meaningless if people were denied Bibles which used their own language.


I think this is a case of Christians working against themselves, working for the enemy.
I don’t believe the God of the Bible and Allah are the same The move should not just upset Muslims but Christians too.
The God of the Bible has a Son. He expresses Himself in three persons- the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. No more can come to Him except through the Son. All our righteous deeds are like filthy rags before Him.
This is not the case with Allah of the Koran.

Arabic word for God is Illaha. Allah does not mean God.

Roman Catholics call upon Allah in their sunday services. They are more muslims than muslims.

God bless you
