Help! The Christians
To Convert Everyone!
Help! I just watched the 700 Club and the Christians are trying to convert everyone! There studios in India, the Philippines, Indonesia, and even Communist China! What happens if they get too powerful?

They already are too powerful. However, much of what you hear on the 700 Club about missionary work is exaggerated. India has about 4,000 dialects, and Christian supernaturalism is a real yawner compared to what some of the Swamis teach over there. And don't expect very many Muslims to convert any time soon. I think there will always be an overall balance of diverse interests.
The missionaries know this, but blindly follow the Commandments to "compel them to enter in" and to "make disciples of all nations," justifying huge expenditures toward clearly futile endeavors.
