‘Malaysian Insider membela agenda pelampau evangelis Kristian?’
In 1953 the year of Nigeria’s independence, there were 45.3 percent Muslims in the population compared to 21.4 percent Christians and 33.3 percent belonging to other folk religions.
In 2010 it was estimated that 49.3% of the Nigerian population are now Christian compared to 48.8% Muslim. Meanwhile the animists and holders of traditional spiritual beliefs were almost totally wiped out.
In the span of a little over 60 years, the Christian population in Nigeria leaped from 2 out of every 10 persons to covering half the population.
The evangelistas are most super effective and deadly efficient. Data on the superb success of Christian proselytization in Nigeria is a testament to this.
Animists must be >>”racist” << too and thus be “abolished”
Over the past half century, close to all the pagans in Nigeria have been effectively Christianized (upwards spiking line) whereas at the same time, Islam (flat line) has failed to increase its population share.
Nigerians who practice animist and other folk beliefs (plunging line) have been whittled down to near zero — see line graph below.
Animists and those holding to folk religions are being similarly targetted in Malaysia as are Hindus and Buddhists by the evangelistas.
Do the Muslims think they are immune from the onslaught?

South Korea’s mega churches
In 1960, South Korea had fewer than a million Christians.
A decade ago, approximately 3 out of every 10 South Koreans were Christians. According to the country’s 2005 census, 29 percent of the population in South Korea were Christian compared to 23 percent Buddhist (source via the ‘International Religious Freedom Report for 2012’, US State Department).
Although South Korea – which has a population of 50 million people – conducted a national census in 2010, it is not making its Religion data public.
Mega churches are a phenomenon in South Korea where its Yoido Full Gospel Church has a whopping one million members.
“Strong evangelistic impulse” of South Koreans
A Pew Forum survey found that “strong religious commitment on the part of South Korean Christians seems to drive their efforts to convert their fellow countrymen“. It added that this “strong evangelistic impulse” similarly made them extend their missionary zeal abroad including to Afghanistan.
South Korean missionaries had been famously kidnapped by the Taliban in the summer of 2007 with two of the 23 hostages executed.
“Not only are their numbers growing, but the level of religious intensity of South Korean Christians is much higher than that of other religious groups in the country”, said the Pew report (12 Dec 2007) monitoring the influence of the Christian community on the country’s presidential election.
It’s part of their global strategy for the Christians to flex their muscle in the political arena. The same is clearly happening in Malaysia too.
Singapore exports their prosperity gospel to Jerusubang
Closer to home, Christians presently make up 18.3 percent of the Singapore population. City Harvest evangelistas have already established several affiliate churches in Malaysia with the main one being in Subang Jaya.
Over the last 10 years, the Buddhist numbers in Singapore fell by 9.2 percent.
Now just imagine if the Muslim numbers in Malaysia should fall by 9.2 percent by the time we get to the year 2024. Although this will probably not happen, nonetheless the hypothetical comparison shows in stark relief how the Buddhists are fast disappearing in our neighbouring country!!
Orang Melayu-Islam kena ambil iktibar ni …
For Jakim sermon excerpt above, see here
DAP objects to Jakim sermons warning against the enemies of Islam
Lim Kit Siang took Prime Minister Najib Razak to task, berating “How can he allow Jakim under the PMO to incite religious acrimony, animosity and hatred”.
In his 3 Feb 2014 press statement, the DAP Mursydul Am also alleged that Muslim extremists “want to tear the country asunder with incessant incitement of racial and religious hatred, conflict and tension”.
An article in The Malay Mail on 7 Feb 2014 labelled mosques as “hatred factories”.
TMI the leading pro-Christian spin site
The Malaysian Insider, needless to say, is always spinning on this issue.
“Nampak jelas sangat TMI mempunyai agenda jahat mereka. Dan semakin menyerlah. Menyerang Islam bertubi-tubi dan menghentam kerajaan pemerintah,” said Muafakat sec-gen A. Karim Omar in his blog posting yesterday titled ‘Takkan pegawai-pegawai PM Najib masih nak duduk diam jugak‘.
The Christians were angry when a Jakim sermon identified Jews and the Christians as the “enemies of Islam” .
They want to interfere in the administration of Islam and prevent Jakim from preparing sermons based on Quranic texts that warn the ummah against the wicked designs of the Christians and the Jews.
UiTM demonized by DAP and gang
It is not only Jakim which is concerned about the Christian threat. MAIS is too.
Regarding surah Al Baqarah, verse 120: “Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion”, MAIS interpreted it as:
“Penegasan Allah tentang sikap dendam golongan Yahudi dan Nasrani yang selama-lamanya tidak akan redha dengan Islam dan umatnya selagi tidak berada di bawah telunjuk mereka”.
Statistics don’t lie. Evangelistas do
All the time.
The stats prove that evangelism is going full throttle in the vulnerable target countries.
Nonetheless when forums like the one in UiTM try to expose these facts, the non-Muslims make police reports against the seminar organizers as if the speakers were guilty of “hate crime”.
“Evangelicalism is growing twice the pace of Islam and three times as fast as the overall world population,” according to Jason Mandryk who co-authored the mission prayer guide Operation World.
Mandryk indicated that a significant growth of evangelicalism is seen in countries such as Brazil, China, Bangladesh and Nigeria which have “exploding” Christian populations, reported The Christian Post in its 28 Sept 2006 article ‘Mission Expert: Evangelicalism fastest growing religious movement‘.
