quote="Philip"]CRAMs,my experience with missionaries in India as a child,most of whom who were very Victorian in their outlook,generally had a simple agenda.Preach the gospel of Christ (Love God,love thy neighbour...) and serve in some form.The act of service/self-sacrifice,was an act of love towards fellow human beings.Therefore,hospitals,work with lepers,educational institutions were the manner in which they served both God and man.Most of these missionaries were from Europe.They generally led a spartan puritan lifestyle,eschewing glitz and glamour and worldly possessions.This generation of missionaries has virtually died out with many who chose to stay behind and die in India rather than return to their native lands.There was a distinct separation of state and soul in their doctrine.
Separation of the State and religion and not soul.Soul always belonged to the Church.
The True Christianity died when Paul took over. The Pope slaughtered the Cathcart and other Jewish sects’ true follower of Christianity who were no different to Buddhist and Hindu monks.
It’s easy to open different institutions when you mange to robe the world and the country you wish to convert. Spartan life, [joke] but they could always retire to their wonderful houses and benefits of the imperialist ill-gotten gains. What Generation missionary are you talking about?
I suggest you read the coming of the British to India and the dirty work of these Victorians. As the African leader said, “They gave us the Bible and took our land.” In India they took more; their [Indian’s] dignity to make a living; and then open up missionary and show how generous they are. Do you know these people during the famine only gave food if the poor converted to Christianity? This was one of many causes or abuses that gave birth to 1857aggression against the British. Even today in India during the Tsunami some Christians’ only gave help if they converted.
Christianity is the tool of the west to dominate the world; like Islam is the tool for the Arabs. American took over where the European left.
The idea of the American’s Christians is; if they all converted to their ways of Christianity, there is less chance of war with America. India is the prime target.
Pious people don’t go-around breaking other people doors.
India is now number one in child sexual abuse by the white Christan's foreigners. These so called white Christians, open some centre in Indian to help the poor but really are sexually abusing the children. All with the help of the local politicians. This sexual perversion is named as the “Catholic disease”.
I salute the Haiti’s rulers in locking up these animals, sexual perverts, kidnappers and human trafficking.
Shame on Indian politicians and so called religious leaders who don’t have the guts to stop the Americans and other white’s people abusing their children.
This is not meant be a personal on you.
