Semi-interesting article by a guy who was a missionary and now thinks that evangelicals shouldn't evangelize. Big deal but then I find this quote:

Funny thing is, Jesus never said, “Go into the world and convert people to Christianity.” What he said was, “Go and make disciples of all nations.”

Even funnier than that, pal, is that no one really knows what Jesus said or didn't say. No one can even prove he existed. The new testament was written by unknown authors 300-400 years after the mythical figure we call 'Jesus' was allegedly around. This is what no one wants to talk about. Everyone wants to argue what the word of 'the Lord' really means or what he really said when and where but there is a HUGE uncertainty hooked on to all of that due to authorship and the effects of time on the written and passed on word.

But I just know people think the New Testament is a real time record of events in the life of Ivan DeJesus Jesus but it is nothing of the kind and biblical scholars are in agreement about this. Pretty easy to put words into the Lords mouth 400 years after he may have existed. And, if he is the son of the creator of the universe why not straighten out any misconceptions.

Ah, that wouldn't be mysterious!
