Christian Missionaries
I hate Christian missionaries. They go places where they are not wanted and try to throw there fictional character down your throats. They go tell people if they do not accept there God they will be tortured forever when they die. God I hate them. Little back story I went to my home country (Bosnia) a few weeks ago and like three missionaries were in my town doing exactly what I'm talking about.

Re: Christian Missionaries
The ones worth their salt will help the people. Like Dr. Ken Brantley did in Liberia. They try to demonstrate through compassion. Does Judaism or Islam do that?

Yes, obviously they haven't made it better there and they have been there for how long?

I agree with you. It is an impudent act to force (especially when using a military power) own religion on others. There were so many wars because of religions! Apart from it many Christian missionaries are not Christians and they only pretend it. Many are Hellish people.

Really... DO get over it. Most missionaries are very good people who lead by example. I spent years in foreign countries as a Christian Missionary and most of the people I worked with were the absolute nicest and most decent people on earth.

OP is correct, there are a few bad ones out there from all Christian groups to cause problems for the rest -- but OP should know better than to assume the worst.

Re: Christian Missionaries
Jesus said "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned." Jesus did not say, go into the world and try to convert! Nor does the Great Commission say to build orphanages, build churches, bring people to church, impose Biblical standards upon society, or to even change the world for Christ. Yet this is what 90% of the Western missionaries are doing today. Why?

Here in the Philippines missionaries can continue to live their Western lifestyles. They can drive nice cars, wear the newest clothing, eat at Western style restaurants, and live in comfortable homes that are of a much higher class than the average citizen in the Philippines can afford. How can people living like the top 1% reach some of the poorest people in the entire world? It doesn't work. If it did, the Philippines would no longer be a third world country and nearly everyone would be Born again long before now since Western missionaries have been coming here for many, many, decades. Just imagine if all of the money sent to sponsor Western missionaries all these years went directly in the hands of local ministries what could be accomplished.

Another issue in developing countries like the Philippines and the ones found in other parts of Asia as well as Eastern Africa as the result of Western Missionary influence has been the loss of culture and identity of its people. Why Western missionaries believe that people must end their ties to their culture in order to believe in a "Their" version of Jesus is beyond me. Jesus crosses all cultural lines and can fit into any people group. Sending rich, Western Christians, from first world countries like the US into to these communities to spread first world Western values is wrong and this is what is destroying many cultures not just here in the Philippines, but around the world. The church today has been warped into a hybrid of Jesus and the American dream serving only when it is convenient and going into other countries and telling people how they should be living when what they should be doing is sticking to the Gospel. The result of straying from this is cultural destruction, predation and alienation of people from other members of their tribe or group.

Some Christian missionaries do good things. They feed the poor, they help build houses and schools. They give away clothing and money to the needy, but this makes them no different from any other NGO that works with the poor. What does make them different in addition to living way above the standards of the people they are trying to reach is their method of reaching the masses. They take advantage of the lack of education and poverty of the people they are helping and I believe this at itís core is very wrong. They take control and possession of mainly the children, basically brainwashing them into thinking their culture is inferior, and then with attractive incentives get them to take up Western values. However, I also donít think the missionaries involved in this type of "converting" realize what theyíre doing. Theyíre blinded by their own faith and self-righteousness to see the destruction they cause to the communities they are trying to help.

"A religion that gives nothing, costs nothing, and suffers nothing, is worth nothing." ~ Martin Luther

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." Philippians 2:3-4

Re: Christian Missionaries
My sister and her husband went to Jordan as Christian missionaries.

They seem to forget about that after a couple of weeks and now spend more time running their travel business over there.
