Christianity, academia, and whatever else I happen to be thinking about
I'm sitting here looking at this map and wondering why we're sending "missionaries" into Mexico, Ecuador, Italy, Spain, the Galapagos, etc.....???
I always wonder about that, too.What's the reason for it?
I've been wondering about that for a very long time.
Because if we send them into the "green" area, they tend to lose body parts--like heads.
Because we like to mix charity and social work with a mission, so we feel like we are doing something useful, then we have great stories to tell the congregation back home? Most people don't feel like spreading Christianity is all that useful/safe - but handing out freebies to second world residents, now that is "giving" to the "poor" and that is worthy of a slide show. Being chased by an angry mob through the market and ending up in jail wouldn't make the Sunday School Approved cut.
