Title: Missions and Missionaries..
Post by: delade3 on Sat Nov 19, 2016 - 23:07:27
Would it be a good idea for missionaries to go into places where Christ Jesus has not yet entered in yet?  In other words, would it be more of value for people who live in places that have no Churches of Christ to be reached versus going into already Church filled places to win over some of their residents into Christ?  Shouldn't their own Ministry team reach out in their own home community to reach the 'lost'?  Why would we need Missionaries from Sweden, Mexico, Africa, Indonesia to come to America to evangelize when America already has its' own Christians?  And so likewise, why does Sweden, Mexico, Africa, Indonesia need Americans to go and evangelize when they already have its' own Christians?

And to play on a twist on ideas, what if they are coming here to America to be evangelized to instead of American Christians going over there in order for them to hear the Word of God??

I think America might already have enough 'seeking' ones that need to hear The Word of God and an addition of 'seeking' ones from other places might make reaching the seeking Americans even more difficult.  Why not start in our own backyards and front porches instead of in a place we may not even know the language of??

Besides, are you really willing to fully trust in the interpreters interpretation of what YOU are saying?

Here is one clear example right on google translate:

For anyone who knows how to read and pronunciate the Korean language:
is a clear example of how the 'spelled' word is not the same as it should be pronounced.  The word spelled in Korean should be read: 
'Yo Bo Se Yo'   

instead of

'Yo Bu Se Yo'.

Clicking on the 'speaker/volume' button in the Korean section of the page will allow you to hear its' pronunciation as suggested. 

I must be careful with what I accept as the truth now days especially with so much competition for monetary profits and people's personal desired amount of 'followers'

Aren't the more 'followers' you have on instagram and facebook and such social medias the better thing for social popularity?

In fact, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber's girlfriend, is so popular on instagram that she offers a link which will 'automatically' give you 1000 followers for free...

I'm sorry Lord for all the sins that I've committed.  Please cleanse me and make me the kind of person that is not falling into sins all the time, Lord.  In Your Name, I pray.  Amen. 

I guess once my sins are cleansed, I just move on with life and He's fine and happy with that.  HalleluYah.   

But I do have a problem with self-deprecations.  For some odd reason, I feel disapproval to myself by myself.  Call me odd.
