Missionaries, stay home

Two things we avoid speaking of with others is politics and religion. Both are often irrational articles of faith and fantasy, instead of fact and reason.

Recently a Christian U.S. missionary was murdered in Benghazi, Libya, while on what he said was a God-inspired mission.

So why do some feel it’s OK for them to go to Muslim countries loyal to Muhammad and try to preach and push Christianity and loyalty to Jesus? At best it’s condescending and insulting; at worst it’s dangerous.

Missionaries, stay home with those of like mind. If you truly have any message of value, they will come to you. If no one comes, maybe the message doesn’t have so much value as missionaries assume.

A. Martin,
