1. Government practices are pro-Islam. Propagation to Muslims is prohibited under most State laws. Churches face harassment and restrictions on places for worship, visas for foreign missionaries and the usage of religious words (such as "Allah" for God) in the national language. Unreasonable laws such as Internal Security Act is used to curb religious freedom.
2. Secularism and relativism has entered into the Church at the expense of the absolute truth, especially among the younger people who are second generation Christians. While false doctrines such as Prosperity Gospel are not prevalent, some churches are facing problems on finances, moral and leadership and accountability issues.
3. While overall unity among churches and denominations has improved over the years, the sprouting of independent churches with each focusing on their respective agendas and theological emphasis can cause duplication of efforts and dissipation of resources.
4. Traditionally, the majority of Christians are politically uninvolved but since the political tsunami in the 2008 election, the church is now speaking up on issues of national righteousness, public justice, economic sufficiency and social peace. The church however, needs much wisdom and prayer as she treads cautiously in the public square to become its salt and light.
