KUALA LUMPUR: The Council of Churches of Malaysia has expressed shock at remarks made by Federal Territories Minister, Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, urging churches not to speak untruths in their sermons.

“This is an unfounded statement and calls into question the spiritual integrity and witness of the Church in imparting the faith in line with the Gospel as revealed in the holy scriptures.

“It is an affront to the Church for the minister to insinuate that our religious duty in preaching during worship services are ‘lies’ because it is critical of societal issues,” Council of Churches general secretary, Reverend Hermen Shastri, said in a statement.

“I do not think the minister knows that churches spend more time praying for the nation and leaders, that they act and rule justly which is what God wills from human beings on Earth.”

The Malaysian religious communities have indeed helped make the nation what it is today, by teaching their people about justice, peace and harmony. -- Malaysiakini
