Bible in Indonesian schools
RECENTLY A NUMBER of our degree students, as well as graduates who are in the ministry, gathered at our Bible college to sit a religious national exam. If they pass, they will be permitted to teach the Bible in schools and in the military, but only to those who are classed as Christians. As Religion is a compulsory subject in schools, many of the Tawangmangu graduates are teaching the Bible in schools throughout the country.
There are many so-called Christians in this country – in fact, certain regions are regarded as ‘Christian’ – but many do not know the Lord personally.
Tommy, one of our graduates, said he had to sit this exam so that he can teach in a Muslim school that has Christian pupils.
Please pray for many more graduates and God-given opportunities for the Gospel to be shared with school children and soldiers.
