Lim Guan Eng Instigated Christians On Christmas Eve
“ DAP has once again raised the thorny issue of the use of word ‘Allah’ in the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible. DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, in his Christmas message today, urged the government to allow Christians to use the word in the BM version of the bibles, in the spirit of the holiday”,so went the news reports today.
What a timing….for Lim Guan Eng to stir up the emotions of Christians in the country….on Christmas eve….the day before Christmas day of 2012. Like Nik Aziz, his counterpart in PAS, DAP’s partner in Pakatan Rakyat coalision, who claimed that every verse of the Quran is ‘political’, Lim Guan Eng seems to eat and drink politics….every single day and hour of his life is ‘politics’, namely anti-UMNO politics. And today, on the eve of Christmas day, he thought it was a ‘timely’ to raise the issue of the use of the word Allah again…the issue which had nearly sparked off a religious/racial riot in the country in quite recent past.
In his Christmas message, LGE was reported to have added that the use of the word Allah in the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible has been allowed in Sabah and Sarawak for the last 50 years and practiced in the Middle East for more than a thousand years.
My point of contention here is, why compare with Sabah and Sarawak, and the Middle East countries. Are Sabah, Sarawak and the Middle east countries the birthplace of Christianity, and the heartlands of Christianity?
Why he dare not compare our situation with the Vatican and Rome, the actual BIRTHPLACE of Roman Catholicism? Why he dare not compare our situation with European countries, the countries where Roman Catholicism used to spread like wild fire, and eventually became the HEARTLANDS of this main branch of Christianity? Why he dare not compare our situation with North and South American countries where the churches dominate their skylines.
The answer is DEAD SIMPLE. In the Vatican and Rome, the BIRTHPLACE of Roman Catholicism, and European countries, the HEARTLANDS of Christianity, and in North and South Americas, the Christians in all those countries NEVER HEARD of Allah as the name of their Christian God.
To Malaysian Roman Catholics, please travel to the Vatican and Rome, please visit churches and cathedrals in Europe, please meet Christians in North and South American countries, they all will tell you that the name ALLAH never appeared in their Holy Bibles….and they will advice you to forget ALLAH….and not to listen to politicians like Lim Guan Eng…
To all Christians all over the world, I wish you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
