“We follow the Bible. The Malay-language Bible uses Allah for God. In our prayers and in church during Malay mass, we use the word Allah”.
This is a promise from Reverend Lawrence Andrew, editor of the Malaysian Roman Catholic weekly newspaper “Herald”.
The Herald has translated the word God as “allah” but it is erroneous because Allah refers to the Muslim god, said Che Din Yusoff, a senior official at the Internal Security Ministry’s publications control department, in remarks monitored by BosNewsLife.
Christians cannot use the word Allah. It is only applicable to Muslims. Allah is only for the Muslim god. This is a design to confuse the Muslim people, Che Din added.
However church sources say the Malay-language Bible uses Allah for God. We follow the Bible. The Malay-language Bible uses Allah for God and Tuhan for Lord. In our prayers and in church during Malay mass, we use the word Allah, Reverend Lawrence Andrew, editor of the Herald, told reporters.
July 19th 2011: The Pope has finally established full diplomatic relations with Malaysia.
The move follows the footsteps of other Muslim-majority nations such as Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt, Libya, the Arab League and majority members of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
To merge Islam and the Roman Catholic faith, some grand compromises is needed.
The two biggest religions of the World, will surely agree that they worship the same “god”. Either they call him “allah”, or just call the creator “god”.
They will agree that any claim that Jesus is God and the only way to Heaven, should be avoided for the sake of “peace” and “justice”.
The Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia now use the word “allah” during their mass.
This is indeed a proof that the Catholics and Muslims do worship the same “god”.
But this “god” is not God of Bible.
God of the Bible can only be fully recognized by those who accept His divine Son. The name of the Son is not “allah“.
Islam teaches that “god” do not have a divine Son equal to God the Father.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Since there is no truth in Islam, neither is there any truth in Roman Catholicism, who compromise and corrupt the truth.
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
Only whose who cry out to God in the name of Yeshua the Messiah can be saved. In English His name is Jesus.
I and the Father are one.
