Isn’t it colonial of us to send missionaries?

This important podcast was suggested by one of our listeners: One question that has come up in a number of conversations lately, especially with young people is: “Isn’t it colonial of us to send missionaries?” They’re not satisfied with a simple… “No, Jesus says go!” for an answer. We’re grappling with this one though, considering the good done in mission history, but also the negative, and the associations with colonialism. We recently heard of a young adult’s group at a Bible-believing church that doesn’t want to take a mission course because “missions is too colonial.” How do we teach and help people through such questions? Do missionaries destroy culture? Do they do more harm than good? And isn’t it colonial of Christians to still be sending missionaries? Join us as we address these questions with Robert Woodberry, surfacing the impact missionaries have had upon the world.
