What I thought of today…

Just a little two cents worth of theological musings.

Been wondering of the REAL meaning behind our beloved verse, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

In what has come to characterize the quasi-rationalism of the 21st century, a non-Christian would say, “Who made Christ our saviour? I didn’t ask to be saved, I don’t need to be saved and I damn well didn’t vote for Christ to save me.”

That is a hard hitting way to put it, but for a the past 4 years, we have been slurping the damning media coverage of a botched US attempt to “bring democracy to Iraq.” Can’t blame anyone for taking the anti-salvation stance.

For the past 4 years, conscientious Malaysians have watched in dismay as basic local governance, security and national unity get torn to shreds under the administration of a PM who had promised to bring a new leaf to Malaysia under his banner of Islam Hadhari. Religion has done little to change things; one wonders whether Christ would fare any better.

Whether outside our borders or within, we are being told (daily) that religion breeds disaster. And that the old fashion way of cleaning up the cesspit we got ourselves into is to roll up our sleeves and…start scrubbing.

(To be continued in a next post…)
