The above is part of the nearly 3,000 Christians who packed the Christian Accumenical Worship Centre to pray and listen to their leaders speak on the controversial Al-Kitab issue.The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of theLord for ever.

During the press conference, Shazryl Eskay Abdullah admitted he was in the video but did not say what role he was involved in. So, could the purported figure of Anwar Ibrahim be him, looking at the similarities in the photos below. We have to bear in mind the images were not clear and the video was in black and white.

I am trying to understand the logic of UMNO
It is a No No to a religious book like the Bible
But it is okay for someone to screen porno videos and have it done publicly. Read here for the Minister's reasoning, or is it?
I like the part where the Minister was,"Commenting on the screening of the sex video at a hotel yesterday, the de facto law minister insisted that it was not illegal for the people behind this to show the video to journalists and editors." He further asked, "“You tell me what is wrong. Everybody says it is against the law, but tell me, which law? Whoever knows should come forward to inform us,” [Helloooooo, you are a lawyer by training, I am surprised that you did not know. Perhaps you should check out. Section 292 of the Penal Code Act"]. Nazri said, "Don't kill the messenger". [I wonder why UMNO is hell bent on "killing" RPK as a result of his expose on the Altantuya case?]

According to the Catholic calendar, this is the season of Lent, the six weeks before Easter where the faithfuls are required to undergo penance, be prayerful, fasting and charitable. In other words, Lent is a season of soul-searching and repentance. It is a season for reflection and taking stock.
However, the on-going dispute with regard to the usage of the Bahasa Bible has somehow or other turn the holy season into something very significant. From my own reflection .....
Just like Judas Iscariot, the Christian Ministers sold out their faith and community to the "Pharisees" of the day.
What was the worth? Thirty pieces of silver, the salary the Ministers earned
The Holy Bible is put on trial and ridiculed
The Holy Bible is desecrated
Just like the Romans who mockingly labeled Jesus "INRI" or "The King Of Jews" by placing the plaque at the top of the cross, so was our Holy Bible labeled.
