  • IMO if it was fellowship they would be leaving the poor countries alone instead of trying to bring the word of Jesus to the 'heathens". They've done just fine with their own religion for thousands of years before the bible thumpers showed up.
    My BFF's sis in law is a missionary. They hand out food to those ONLY who are willing to come in and sit through a bible reading. She feels this is a right thing to do.
