Jeden prispevok z ineho fora, ktory ma co to spolocne s temou:
"Maybe your understanding of the Christian way has been poisoned by what passes for Christianity these days. You have a right to judge as you see fit, but you also need to judge yourself, and realize that you are judging based on your own limited experience and wisdom.
I have spent 2 weeks on a trip as a guest of an Indian missionary group. Let me tell you it was an eye opening experience. As part of my trip, I visited a slum in Bombay where millions of people live in what amounts to little more than a dump. What struck me the most was not the poverty, the filth, the stench, etc, but the joy and innocence of the people. On the one hand it broke my heart, but on the other hand I came away realizing how poor we are spiritually in our modern materialistic obese and sterile world. Those people actually gave more to me than what I was able to offer them.
A very little of our fiat money buys a great deal for those people. Some of your negative sentiment is in my humble opinion a rationalization that protects you from the guilt of doing nothing to help other people. It may be a kind of justification to tell yourself that meddling in others' affairs is wrong, when it really points out the hidden reality that you don't have anything of real value to offer, and that which you do (materially speaking) you would rather not part with. There are many rationalizations we turn to rather than digging deeper and sacrificing and challenging our worldview.
Why not question your friend as to the specifics of their mission, such as the message they bring, or what benefits they hope to effect or stories that they have to tell about the people they met and how they live, their problems and pains, their spiritual view of life. You just might find yourself opening up to a whole new reality you had been missing out on."
Ten prvy odsek ma dost pravdy v sebe (da sa kombinovat nie len s krestanstvom, ale so vsetkym...)
