"Have Missionaries Lost Their Chariots of Fire?"

Does the term missions itself hold a negative connotation?

What do you think of Francis Assisi's often misused quote, "Preach the Gospel always, and if necessary, use words."?

Has the pendulum of missions swung too far from spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth to fighting social injustice?

How has missions changed in Africa now that the majority of the pool of potential converts is not up for grabs (90% are already Christian or Muslim)?  

Are we directing Christian Missionaries to the right locations (82% of missionaries go to the Christian 3rd World)?

   If you have ever wondered about some of these questions go to:

to read Brad Greenburg's column in the Wall Street Journal entitled "Have Missionaries Lost Their Chariots of Fire?"

By all means if you have an opinion share it in the comments!
