This morning I had to turn off the radio after listening to a guest speaker – a supposed prayer warrior – talking about praying for the the APEC Leaders Summit against the invasion of ‘foreign Gods’.
The use of this term had me so riled up that I had to switch off the radio. I literally felt offended that someone would use such a term to describe other religions when the very one that he practices is foreign.
If you are a Christian calling other religions foreign then you don’t know how your religion came to be. In fact, if we are brutally honest, as Papua New Guineans it is a religion that was literally forced on us.
Did our ancestors have a choice? To accept Christ or not? They did not and although missionaries did not force it on the older folks, they did with the children – even to the extent of taking them away from their parents.
Now I do not know which foreign God this speaker was referring to but such blind fanaticism is not good – for any faith – and history has a multitude of examples.
Anyway, that is the rant for today. Let me know what you think in the comments section.
