Hey friends, I could really use prayer. My team and I have been hosting services each night and I am preaching the evening service every night. It is heart wrenching to stand before 70 people in front of their Hindu Temple and proclaim the gospel and to see that they don’t want Him. I take comfort in that the gospel is being proclaimed and the Lord will draw His sheep, but it’s taking a toll on me. Thank you for your continued prayers, family! Love you!
Don’t you think it’s heart wrenching for these faithful Hindus to see a bunch of strange American missionaries trying to convert them when they are trying to worship?
Don’t you think they might just want you to go home
I have nothing against anyone who believes in Jesus. I have a problem however for missionaries who think they’re going to countries to save people from going to hell. Really? I mean really?
The reason why people don’t accept Christ is because they already have a religion. They don’t need some random person coming to their homes and telling them that their religion is wrong. People don’t need “saving.”
We are in the 21st century.
Go back home.
Leave them alone. Stop. They do not need your religion or your teachings.
i pray that the op learns to mind his own fucking business and go the fuck home
Wow, standing IN FRONT of their temple? C’mon man, would you be ok with other religions standing IN FRONT of your church telling you to change religions?
You want to bring more people to Christianity? Do like Christ - help the poor, feed them, give them medicine, show them what a good person your religion turns you into. (Maybe also do like Christ and start by fixing up the problems in your own community and the hypocrisy before you go messing with other people!) Instead you running up in other people’s homes telling them how to live their lives. How you gonna spread Christianity acting like a Roman?!?
When you already missed the core teachings of your own religion, how are you qualified to even try to bring it to anyone else?
And that’s even BEFORE we get into talking about colonialism, imperialism, cultural imperialism and everything else you’re doing.
This so much.
And this utter disrespect came through in the door-to-door bible-pushers too; they’d do things like point at statues of Ganesha and rail against idol-worship and elephants and rats.
Though I’m grateful to them for being so obnoxious I never wanted to convert.
I was having a REALLY bad day yesterday. What could make it worse? Christians deciding it was a good time to try to give me a conversion spiel. Christians love to take any excuse to try to convert you - whether it’s a bad day or they’re just in the neighborhood. Going all the way across the world to try to convert people in their own place of worship has been part of their religion basically forever. It gives me a new appreciation for the “old way” of dealing with arrogant prosyletizers.
No, people. I tried it once. I don’t need to try it again. I HAVE a religion. I don’t need yours. And if I didn’t have a religion, I STILL wouldn’t need yours.
I cannot stand these people. Really, I cannot.
There is so much that needs doing in this country. So much. We need day care. We need people to help out the elderly and people who are sick. Do these people do anything like this? Would any of them stay home, and operate a program to do grocery shopping for an elderly person or a shut in? Operate a low cost day care for working women? No. They spend how much money to fly to the other side of the world to BOTHER these people. Yes, BOTHER them. If they were to operate any kind of program that might assist the people in other countries (or this one for that matter) they IMPOSE CONDITIONS on that help in many cases…just sit and listen to me for hours on end and then accept Jesus as your savior…
Honestly missionaries are and have always been colonialists. FUCK OFF. I get fuckin’ annoyed every time I see missionaries talk live they are saviors to people who practice and believe in other religions. Hell it’s why I always side eye and get pissed whenever my best friend goes on missionary work with her Korean church. Just last month she was in Kenya for missionary work for the Maasai people. I fuckin’ wanted to strangle her when she tried telling me what she did there and I was like, no shut up. Last time it was for a group of kids and their families in somewhere in South America, I forget where. And then when I read her missionary friends comments on statuses and pictures I want to bang my head against the table and throw something across the room. No fuck you. Missionary work is nothing but colonialism and imperialism.
