No wonder I am a Christian.

When I consider all of the other things that tug at my sense of identity — things such as nationality, ethnicity, and demands to loyalty of either; the politics and policies of language and that uncomfortable interaction with the rest of the world — then I think to myself: no wonder I am a Christian. For Christianity, far more powerful than being Malaysian, or Bumiputra, or second-class Bumiputra, or East Malaysian, or half-Chinese, or Anglophile, or Japanophile, or whatever one can think of; and being Christian means being an inheritor or another history, another past, and one that I can choose — and, because of eschatology, another destiny, too.

    Hello, I’m experimenting with comment threading.


Comments are currently closed.

Welcome.

Kata Karcy is part of an experiment to write consistently in two separate blogs -- one as a public diary, and one as a public soapbox -- for two months. By the end of the two months, if things go well, I will purchase my own webspace and set up my own personal hub, of which the two blogs will be part of. To visit the public diary, check out Life in Progress.
