Ugandan president teaches Muammar Gaddafi about Christianity

ICC Note

While making speech in Uganda , President of Libya Colonel Gaddafi stated that Bible is flawed because it doesn’t mention about Mohammed. On his part the president of Uganda Museveni explained to Gaddafi about Christianity.

Kampala, Mar 26, 2008 / 04:30 am (CNA).- President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda spoke about Christianity to Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in response to the latter’s claim that the Bible had been doctored, the Catholic Information Service for Africa reports.

Last week Colonel Gaddafi claimed that the original Bible had mentioned Muhammed, but had been doctored to exclude references to the founder of Islam. Ugandan Christians condemned his claim.

During Easter prayers at Nshwere Church in the Kiruhura district, President Museveni spoke about his discussion with the Libyan leader. He said he told Colonel Gaddafi that the resurrection of Jesus is important for humanity, especially Christians, because it gives them hope for life after death.

The president said he also told Gaddafi that the fundamental laws of Christianity are contained in the two laws found in Chapter 12 of the Gospel of St. Mark. He cited both commandments, which read, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and all your strength,” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
