Well, as a Christian, I was apprehensive but reminded myself that it is just a building after all! A very big, very beautiful building. They brag about how much it cost and how quickly they built it, but for me, it was sad. So much money spent on a building that so many people can come to, to worship a false god.
As we were standing inside and listening to what the tour guide was saying about facing Mecca, and the ritualistic way of doing things, inside I was praying: "Thank you Lord that I don't need to face a certain way, and have washed my face, hands and feet a certain manner for a certain amount of times. Thank you, Lord, that I can just look up, that You are in my heart, wherever I am, whatever position I am in, You hear me and You love me."
I prayed that one day that building would be filled to capacity with God-fearing Christians and that the roof would lift with the voices praising Him to the heavens. Why not? It is just a building! I pray that one day it be dedicated to the service of the Lord.
2 Chron 20 v 6: O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven? And do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You.
Ps 66 v 7: He rules by His might forever, His eyes observe and keep watch over the nations; let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
Although we went into a mosque where God is not welcome, I felt deep in my heart, that He loves those people and He will be found by them and He will have His way and that building will not honour a false god forever.
Just my observations and thoughts :)
