Do You Wonder, Like Lulu Did, If Jesus Was Political?

Can Christians be political without getting involved in party politics?
What is the role of Christians on public issues and the related public policy dialogue?
Are we an Islamic State?
Can we evolve a Bangsa Malaysia?
Who will fight corruption and for integrity?
Whose responsibility is it to ensure the application of universal values, ethics and morality in the public spaces of life in Malaysia?
In the light of many challenges facing Malaysia, what is our role as Christians in Malaysia to continue to be the salt and light of the Gospel on these issues and concerns?

maybe we'd find an answer here

Go, Lulu! This Rev Dr Hwa Yung was my classmate and as I recalled it, eons back, he was a good guy although we weren't close friends. Similarly so was Penang's CM Koh tsu Koon but I only 'endorse' Hwa Yung, hahaha!
