Vandalizing for Jesus

A Hindu temple was vandalized near Dallas, Texas, as found Monday, April 13, by temple members.

Symbols of devil worship were painted on the main door, and on a shed in back was painted the sign of Mara Salvatrucha, the US gang exported to El Salvador.

Hindus still worship a variety of gods, both male and female.  Some of the most famous are Lakshmi, Kali, and Krishna.

Apparently these gang members, like Islamic State terrorists, feel that God wants them to insult and hurt non-believers.

These groups don't know their own holy books well enough. 
The Bible says to tell the Good News about Jesus, but not in a mean way.  See Acts 1: 8 " shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  

What kind of witness is vandalism?  Jesus was not about insulting or hurting others.

The Qur'an says "Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of Allah anything but the truth" (Surah 4:171). 

More words against treating non-believers badly: " not say to anyone who offers you a salutation: 'You are not a Believer!' ...Even thus were you yourselves before, until Allah conferred on you His favors: therefore behave carefully, for Allah is well aware of all that you do" (Surah 4:94).
