Missions Incredible
South Korea sends more missionaries than any country but the U.S. And it won't be long before it's number one.

Has anyone seen this article in the current issue of ChristianityToday? I saw the cover of the magazine but I haven't read the article yet. Here is the link: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2006/003/16.28.html

If you read it before I get around to it let me know what think. If other Koreans have a tendency to be like UBFers this could be a scary prospect. What does this say about the state of Christianity in America? Why are Koreans so anxious to go out as missionaries? Conversely, why are Americans so reluctant? Look forward to seeing what the article actually says and hearing your comments. Wonder if it mentions UBF?

Just another comment on this: I believe people decide where to evangelize based on where they feel God is calling them, not based on statistics.

I believe in UBF, people think they go where they "feel God is calling them", but in reality they simply do if leaders are telling them to go and pressuring them enough. I know a missionary who wanted to go to Russia, but the leader told him to go to Germany, so he went to Germany. And if the leaders would not tell them to go, most wouldn't go anyway.

Samuel Lee made a big fuzz of it and said they should go to other countries (because he was eager to build up something "great"). If Samuel Lee had preached that UBF should focus on Korea, and on proper and healthy Biblical teaching, maybe all UBF members would have studied the Bible better, and it would be a sound and influential Christian organization today, and not a cult? Maybe then, as a sound and healthy Christian organization, individual members who are particularly gifted and willing for foreign mission would have felt compelled to go themselves?
