Singapore prime minister: Evangelization threatens nationís stability
Catholic Culture ^ | August 21, 2009

Posted on 08/21/2009 6:19:00 AM PDT by Pope Pius XII

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who assumed office in 2004, is warning that evangelization threatens the stability of his island nation. Citing “aggressive preaching” and criticizing the “wave of revival, megachurches, and tele-evangelism” he sees in the United States, the Buddhist prime minister-- and Catholic high school alumnus-- said that “the most dangerous fault line is race and religion.”

An estimated 4% of the nation’s 4.6 million inhabitants are Catholic; 43% are Buddhist, and 15% are Muslim.

The only faith that is being singled-out for persecution throughout the world, and even here in the US, is evangelical and/or fundamental Christianity.

Read the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

It’s all in there.

So a man in a suit speaking in tongues or a man in a dress handing out bread and wine is a bigger threat than a man with a turban hacking off the heads of unbelievers?

Has this man ever been to planet Earth before?

by the way, we Catholics consider “handing out bread and wine” to be the body and blood of Christ. no, I don’t think this man has ever seen a Christian before, nor been to a mass.

Oh yes! Forgot about that! I went to a Polish mass in Portland once. Very beautiful. And not one time did the priest call for death of America and jihad either.

4% catholic and 15% muslim.

I wonder about what the 15% are like. In light of some news stories I heard I am not optimistic.

The Prime Minister is absolutely correct.

The Word of Almighty God most certainly threatens the stability of a non-Christian nation. When it is brought to unbelievers they are going to hear it and be eternally moved.

Citing “aggressive preaching”

Perhaps he wouldn't mind so much if the preaching were half-hearted? He should move to America; we've got a lot of churches like that...

Amen!

That is the verse that came to mind when I read this article.

To be fair, is he thinking of Benny Hinn, Jimmy Swaggart, PTL and the rest of the Bible Thumper crowd? It’s one thing to preach the Gospel, quite another to rip people off in the NA-yum of JAY-EE-Zus.
Of course, true faith has the way to change the world, and may just unseat the Golden Calf.
