On the 14th of January, Oliver was invited to represent Christianity in an Inter-Faith Dialogue on the topic of ‘Creation vs. Evolution’ at a university near Kuala Lumpur. The other two representatives were from the Islam and Atheist (i.e. no religion) backgrounds. The event was attended by over 400 students from four universities around the region. Each speaker was given 20 minutes to speak on their position (with Oliver speaking on Creation from the book of Genesis – a Christian’s perspective), followed by about 1.5 hours of ‘Question & Answer’ time – whereby the students were free to ask any questions to any speakers.
Oliver said that the experience has been very rewarding and satisfying – especially seeing that after the event was over (almost at 11pm), about 10 students (including a few from other faith) stayed back to ask more questions and chat about God and Creation. All glory belongs to God! J
