Update on Gadaffi
I love this headline from the Sunday paper! The Monitor and the New Vision are the two big newspapers here in town, and these papers were everywhere on Easter Sunday.
At the Cathedral, the Assisting Bishop of Kampala, the Rt. Rev. Zac Niringiye, actually addressed this issue as part of the announcements—the issue being that General Gadaffi insists that the Bible must be a forgery because it doesn’t include any mention of Mohammed. Bishop Zac (as he is known) spoke of the dating of Scripture, from its earliest writings to its latest, and to the acceptance of the complete canon of Scripture in the late fourth century, noting that Mohammed lived after all of these events, thereby making it chronologically impossible for Mohammed to be mentioned in Scripture. “So how should a Christian respond?” he asked. “We should love everybody.” End of story. Go, Bishop!
