I am a news junkie of sorts so this news article caught my attention over the last few days. I know we all have different ways to look at things in different parts of the world, but I sometimes find it incredible how we can not insult, or in any way degrade the false profits, false teachers, and false religions of the world and few seem to have a problem with the ultimate insult of Christ that occurs every day throughout the world. Such is the way the world works today as we try to remove the One true God from everything and raise others above Him.
Of course this is not something that is new in our time, it has been going on for 100’s if not 1000’s of years and is told about in the old and new Testaments throughout the Bible.
Muhammad ibn â€˜Abd AllÄh (Arabic Muá¸¥ammad; also Mohammed, Muhammed, Mahomet, and other variants) (c. 570 Mecca – June 8, 632 Madina), was the founder of Islam and is regarded by Muslims as the last messenger and prophet of God (Arabic: Allah). Muslims do not believe that he was the creator of a new religion, but the restorer of the original, uncorrupted monotheistic faith of Adam, Abraham and others. They see him as the last and the greatest in a series of prophets.
Although it doesn’t even seem as this is the case, a woman who had her class name a teddy bear Muhammad has been arrested in Sudan and the school has been closed down. According the BBC news, a British school teacher was arrested and accused of insulting Islam’s profit. I don’t recall a time when a news story was broadcast saying that someone had insulted Christ and were arrested, but I wouldn’t expect one either. I also understand this is an extremely sensitive subject and topic and understanding different cultures and religions is extremely important, especially when working in the context of another country (other than Western Europe or the United States that is).
I hope her situation is resolved without any unnecessary violence.
