Finally i am writing my views on Religion. Typical Singaporean teenage Christians will always tell you things like, “Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship with God”. Don’t you think it is more than a relationship with God ? Who says Islam is not a relationship with God? Who says Buddhism and Taoism isn’t a relationship with God? Having a relationship with God = Christianity? Bullshit ! This is to all “Christians” who think just by being baptised a Christian = being saved. If you are a Christian, go live a Christian faith. Don’t act like a bunch of monkeys luring people using aggressive proselytism. Quoting the Pope: “The church does not engage in proselytism. Instead, she grows by attraction”.
Talking about Praise and Worship, it is sure acceptable as a form of connection towards God. However, there must be a balance with Tradition. Not accepting Tradition is not accepting the Gospel and is not accepting your own religion.
Islam is a religion that deserves alot of respect. True, they have disputes among themselves but which religion don’t? Every Muslim goes to the Mosque faithfully every single friday. This is what i really look up to them on.
Whenever someone asks me which Religion/Faith i am involved in, i would reply “Christian-Catholic” or something close. It’s like i won’t just say the word Christian. You wanna know why? That’s because the aggressive protestants have already tarnished “Christianity”. Christianity is about any Church available in Singapore? No way. Study more into Christianity and you will know what i am talking about.
After all i think Islam in Singapore have displayed a good faith. It will be of no surprise if a number of people converts to Islam.
I remember got once a woman, commented on “Roman Catholic” in front of me. Aggresively, she replied,” Why must you be so specific? Roman? ”
