JAKARTA, Indonesia, April 20 (CDN):

A local government official in Bekasi, West Java last week forbid all worship of the Filadelfia Huria Kristen Batak Protestan Church (HKBP) in Jejalan village. Regent Sa’duddin on April 12 ordered a halt to all activities of the church, including worship services that have been held on a strip of roadside land since the government on Jan. 12 summarily sealed the church’s building, which was under construction.

Response: This article by Compass Direct points out the difficulty that many Christians face in Muslim dominated countries. Several times mobs have attacked and stopped services of this protestant congregation. They were initially approved to build a church but after local protests by extremist Muslims the officials stopped the building. Now they are even stopping this people from holding worship services.

Can you imagine what kind of protests and extreme reactions there would be if a Muslim mosque was treated this way in the USA or a Western country?  Can you imagine a bunch of Western Christians along with their pastors getting together and mobbing a Muslim service or protesting a mosque? No I didn’t think so.  This sort of thing happens all of the time in Muslim dominated countries.         *Top
