News reports are telling readers about a new app that helps people in Indonesia report blasphemy to the government. “Blasphemy” means insulting things that are holy.
Indonesia has more Muslims that any other country in the world. So blasphemy in Indonesia means saying something against Islam or Muslim beliefs. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.) Some Christians are concerned that the app will lead Muslims to report more Christians to the police and get them arrested.
Users can rate the app and tell how much they like it. So far, thankfully, the app is getting low ratings.
Pray that technology and social media will lead more Indonesians to Christ instead of helping them give Christians a hard time.
