Do we fight fire with fire?

The church attacks with happened on the wee hours of Friday morning has bring about uproar among many Christian quarters, regardless of denomination in the country.

Many are furious and angered by such move, crediting it to the outcry of those who were not happy with the High Court's ruling to allow a Catholic publication to use the word 'Allah' in its Bahasa Malaysia articles.

There are a lot of people who are unhappy with the church attacks, seeking justice to be served. A lot of politicians have condemned the attack as well.

But it's good to hear the church leaders forgiving their attackers. After all, as stated in Roman 8:31, "If God is for us, who can be against us?"

Personally, i'm not happy that there's an act of vandalism which occurred in places which i have been before. I was baptised in Metro Tabernacle more than a decade ago, since my KL church did not have its own pool then.

But then again, anything burned down, be it a church, a mosque, a temple, an abandoned public hall, a (under maintained, dirty) public toilet or even a cult leader's house, is not condoned by the masses in general. Right?

In this situation, we've been asked to stay calm, respond in love and pray over this. This would be the best advice to church goers nationwide. Be strong in your faith!

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."

1 John 4:4

Love & Peace!~
