The decision will be a driving force for them to reformulate their identities as believers and not Christians. Two historical backgrounds that made excesses of the decision namely the excesses of the G30S/PKI 1965 events that caused a large number of local believers to become Christians and the European nation's missionary legacy that was less friendly to Indonesian local cultures.
