Day 36 of 47 days… 47 quotes from the new book The Potential of God’s Presence…

From Chapter Six – Facilitating God’s Presence

One thing that early missionaries failed at was their practice of removing a culture’s spiritual practices as they simultaneously taught them who the real “Spirit” was. God created these cultures; in fact the cultures of the earth represent God himself. How dare we invade a culture and tell them that their cultural practices are an invalid way by which to worship the living God, Jesus Christ. When we do this, we are robbing God of that piece of His reflected nature that shines forth from that culture’s worship. Sometimes I think that Western Missionaries forgot that the Bible says that God desires the worship of every nation, tribe, culture and tongue, not just theirs!
