Why America Needs More Missionaries

Dollie Harvey of Missionary Gospel Fellowship writes about some of the obstacles that missionaries face in this article:

Missionaries who ask pastors for opportunities to teach their congregations how to witness to people of other religions are often met with a negative response: “Some of our people are married to Mormons (or Muslims, or Buddhists) and we don’t want to rock the boat. We’ll just present the Gospel and leave the other religions be . . .”

When one pastor made a similar statement to Jack Harvey, Jack exclaimed, “Pastor, I don’t want to ROCK the boat, I want to SINK it!”

According to a recent Barna Research Group study, it’s time American Christians got serious about reaching the world for Jesus Christ, beginning with teaching people in the pews that truth is not relative. For instance, the study reports that 46% of born again Christians think that Satan is “not a living being but is merely a symbol of evil.” Shockingly, 37% of those born again believe that if a person is good enough they can earn a place in Heaven. Is it any wonder America has lost her missionary zeal?
