    I guess I was never aware that the missionaries were accused of colonialism. I always assumed missionaries had a good profile. Still it goes to show that where Christ is preached there is redemption of souls and culture.

    It’s usually intended to insult missionaries and is used by those who think we should leave cultures as they are. Problem is, things like malaria and high infant mortality rates make it impossible to ignore. Not to mention the gospel which is of primary importance!
