Independent Baptist missionaries and not only living like kings in Eastern Europe in Introduce Yourself Posted November 8, 2016 · Report reply A post like this casts a dark pall over all mission work. It is a poor choice of subjects when a new member makes a post like this as his first, introductory post. This person seems to have an ax to grind and exhibits no Christian qualities that I can see. His anger is freely expressed and we only get to hear one side of the story. With respect, it is my opinion that, instead of silencing this voice, we should give him our ear, learn from his experiences and do what we can to change the attitude of many of our missionaries. I have witnessed some of what the OP is complaining about. He may have violated forum rules, but I empathize with him. I know IFB missionaries who fit his description and I have personally been on mission trips to South Africa in the past, with a non IFB church, and know that LexUS is justified in many of his claims. I have been searching for a sound IFB church in my area for quite some time now without success because of some of the same complaints that LexUS has with missionaries. It's obvious that he is upset about the issue and he admitted that he was writing out of anger. Personally, I think that post should stay. I think the points that he raises are important enough to overlook any violations of forum rules. Should a 911 operator hang up on a panicked caller if they use foul language? I think it is an illustration of Romans 2:24: "For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written."
