Allah (este) şi Dumnezeul creştinilor


de Alexandru Nădăban

Agenţiile de ştiri anunţă escaladarea violenţei împotriva bisericilor din Malaezia, o ţară musulmană. De ce se întîmplă asta? Justiţia din Malaezia a decis că numele Allah poate fi folosit şi de alte religii, inclusiv de către creştini. Această decizie a dus la incendierea mai multor biserici din Kuala Lumpur. Deocamdată nu a murit nimeni. Când va începe şi cine va fi primul? Sau prima.

Mă întreb de ce nu s-au pus bombe la Ministerul de justisţie sau la judecători acasă. Poate pentru că sunt musulmani? Poate. Şi mă mai întreb, cum ar putea Biserica lui Cristos să fie lichidată cu bombe? Demolînd clădirea, nu distrugi Biserica, nici nu îl distrugi pe Dumnezeul creştinilor, dacă el este altul decît Allah. Dar, dacă el este tot Allah, atunci vei avea mari probleme. De unde? De la Allah-ul tău!

Logică creştină contra logică musulmană, extremistă. Greşesc?

The attacks are very sad because we have managed to live harmoniously in the past. I was a bit nervous that they could escalate and get bigger, but I am happy that didn’t happen.

The government is taking a lot of security measures around places of worship and I don’t feel scared about going to church. Our government is doing the right thing, they are looking to promote dialogue and better understanding of religious issues.

I believe there might be a different agenda behind these attacks, not necessarily to do with the religious issue. It’s still early to make a final decision, but it’s possible that behind it are people who do not want to see the country as a tolerant and harmonious society. But this is a small group of people.

I think the government is in a tricky situation, it is not an easy task to govern a multi-racial society and it’s not possible to please everyone. We need to find a middle ground, we need to cultivate peace and harmony, but we don’t want to compromise in terms of religious doctrine.

The name Allah belongs to Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Some Muslims may not even realise that it’s been used long before Mohammad by Jews and Christians. Allah cannot be called anything
