Christians know that God is love and forgiveness. We have been told that sinners burn forever in the lake of fire. This image has put a false focus on Christian faith.
We are told by devout Moslems that Allah loves and forgives. But Islam has been accompanied by mob violence. In the last year, two women have been killed on the accusation of burning the Koran.There was no questioning and counselling - only death.
In Indonesia, the Almighty is called Tuhan yang Maha Esa. That is the Almighty God on High. I have often wondered whether or not this refers to the Christian God or Allah. An Indonesia friend told me recently that the name applies to both.
It is becoming fashionable for young people to convert to Islam. Allah may be love but too many of his followers are killers of people whom they consider have insulted Allah. Converted Christians have left behind the questioning of faith. To question is to insult Allah and perhaps die.
We are all grains of sand existing for a millisecond in the history of the world. It is very doubtful that the Almighty would be insulted by anything we say or do, short of harm to other people. Shakespeare wrote that we strut on the stage of life and are gone.
