    Missionaries do.

    My Mother spent a good portion of last year volunteering her time distributing medicines and assisting doctors and nurses in villages in Fiji, Uganda and Jamaica. She worked with two missionary doctors and others who spend their vacations helping the people in these villages.

    Not to toot her horn or anything but my Momma's a good Christian lady. 😏

    I think you know how I feel on the subject. We once discussed how Christians were first recieved as a new belief system into the world as they were martyred one by one and for what? They were a peace loving people who did not choose to fight back and render evil for evil. Just look at Christ and his disciples who were martyred and the early Christians being fed to lions in Rome etc. The ironic part is that it seemed as though the more people who were martyred for the faith increased so did the strength of the movement. I must admit as I look at the lives of the early believers and the sacrifices they made for their faith, the sacrifices I have made pale in comparison. What I do know, however, is that today I am not forced to make such sacrifices as was required before the advent of Christiandom. How could the world not become a better place if more and more men and women sincerly choose to follow the examples of Christ?

    I do not mean, however, to diminish the sufferings of Christians today who are persecuted. People are still subject to death simply for choosing to choose Christ. I am just glad that it does not seem to be as wide spread in the world today as it was in the early days of the Christian movement. I think this speaks volumes as to the overall effects Christianity has had over the years on the world today.

    I wasn't aware that Christians held the monopoly on doing good things.
