Part of the reason why I left the mission field was protest. I did not like the missionary system, did not believe in it, and was cynical about the entire money-squandering enterprise, particularly mission boards. I did not expect to spend the first ten years of my State-side ministry in the forming and building of a church so I had to put my ideas, dreams, and thoughts on international missions on the back burner. However, that has not stopped me (and now our pastoral team) from constantly mulling over the way missions is done. Jeremy Scott emailed this link to me. It’s Doug Wilson being Doug Wilson about missions. Brilliant. A tad cynical perhaps, but appallingly close to the mark.
