I recently had a conversation with an atheist who began asking me about Christian missions.
"Don't you think it's arrogant to go into a different culture, and then try to conform them to yours?"
I doubt most missionaries go to actually change the culture. They go to play a role in the change of hearts. Yeah, if cannibalism is taking place, then that part of the culture needs to change.
That's not what I want to talk about though.
What I find interesting is how it is thought that moving to a place and deliberately trying to change the culture is arrogant, yet how many liberals move from the state that they have helped to destroy to someplace more conservative, bringing their politics with them?
The culture is set, yet they come and then rail against it, claiming every other part of the culture that they have moved to is evil. Then they do everything in their power to change their new home back to their old destroyed one, criticizing and shaming those who do not agree with their own opinions.
Does anybody else see the hypocrisy in this?
