Not too long ago we discussed children’s Bible picture books. Well, the Islamic government of Malaysia is confiscating Christian books that picture Abraham, Moses, Jesus, or other Biblical figures who are recognized by Islam as prophets. Islam forbids visual representations of holy figures, so even non-Muslims must do the same.
And remember how some liberal Christians were saying that we should just use “Allah” for God, since the word is simply the Arabic word for the deity? Well, the Islamic government of Malaysia has also outlawed Christians or any other non-Muslims from using the term “Allah.” This, in effect, prevents Christians from saying the word “God” in the Arabic language.
