Question: Why do so many churches send missionaries around the globe, but don't take care of our own in this country?

Question: Why do so many churches send missionaries around the globe, but don't take care of our own in this country?
I donated to help a Latin American child, and I was thinking about donating more money to help another one.

And then I thought of our vets, and I thought, before I help another non-American child, I should take care of our own people here in America, like veterans, or kids in need of help.

So, I did.

Then I thought why does the same principle of taking care of our own, not apply to missionary work here in America.

The only churches I know of that have missionary work here in America are the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons.

So, why don't the rest of American churches have missionary work here in America, it doesn't make a lot of sense to send missionaries to some 3rd world country when they could be converting some veterans that might be failing spiritually.

These veterans that might be served by missionary work actual provide the protection that allows this nation, and these churches to function under freedom of religion laws. And yet not many American churches are concerned about whether or not they are doing missionary work.

I saw a sign the other day on a church marquis. It said, "Don't wait for six men to take you to church".

I thought, you lazy mother fucker. While I don't agree with all that my last church taught, Mormons. They don't even get paid, and they go out and win converts. This fucker sits on his ass, makes money, and is too lazy to get converts.

His billboard struck me as a cop out.

They claim they are evangelizing the world, but I doubt that. Your guess is as good as mine, but I think they are just trying to get the protestants out of country, not christianize other places, that is the last thing tptb want.

It would be so much simpler to just send them some literature.)

Because the farther away your money skimming operation is, offshore, the better the Church can skim off the cash.

It's just like the Truckers Shipping Industry. California avacado's come from Florida and Florida avacado's come from California because it gives the Truckers more money to drive across the country.

One of the methods used by the PTB is to erase history. Indigenous tribes and religions, based on true spirituality, and having verbal legends of the past, are thus to be erased. Aborigines, who can remote view and are (well, were) totally in harmony with nature, have been horribly abused by English pigs. And by the way, no matter how complicit the ignorant Amerikan is in all this, it comes from England. England has been at the lead to take out indigenous knowledge around the world.

Onward Christian soldiers, burn down ancient libraries telling us about this. Invade cultures on Hitlerian (your guy, btw) pretexts, to take their artifiacts and destroy their history records.

Since all the "major" religions have been taken over by Lucifarians, it makes sense that they will whip up their dumbed down parishioners and convince them to be ground forces in this effort.

Mormons are a satanic cult. There is more room below ground in the Tabernacle building, than above. And they perform their bizarre rituals down there, hidden from their slave-parishioners. Mormonism is the richest per capita religion in the world. Romney may not have evidenced an agenda, but he is a "3" in the Enneagram, a Performer, concerned about his appearnace, wanting to look perfect, and come across as perfect. These people are damned liars, for the most part, though, and he will show his true allegiance if he gets in.

Their 6,000 year old earth theory is part of erasing history. You have to be a real rube to believe that one.

Most of the money earmarked for everseas doesn't get there, it goes to the corporations. And the people over there don't want our help, they want us to leave so they can go back to living the way they did successfully for thousands of years. But they live on top of all those natural resources, so the English-speaking piggies cannot leave.

I only give locally, and not to national orgs like the Red X or Think Pink. All cancer fund drives are frauds, designed to suck money out of your community and do nothing. Their job is to make sure a cure is not found. Food banks are in desperate need right now, if you need to know where the rubber meets the road.
