Hi there,

I am confused by Anthony's thoughts on this subject. Maybe suprised is a better word. My impression from one of the conversations he started on his blog made me think he would've been all over this idea. I do understand and have heard his type of position before, but that would actually end up being an arguement against being a missionary. :S My impression is that you want to be a missionary on WOW. Is that what you are saying? With people living more and more life online, it has become yet another place to spread the Gospel. I'm all for people shining their light everywhere rather than hiding in the corner while cursing the darkness. I feel into that trap regarding Halloween. Satan even lies to us about that. He encourages us to huddle together where its safe and familiar. Remember the tower of Babel? Remember Christ's commandment to go into all the world and preach the Gospel? He even went and ate with prostitutes and tax collectors. God wants us out in the world. The "trick" (I wish I could think of a better word) is to get prayed up all the time, read the Bible every day, and have a good Christian support system (including CGDC's online community <grin>), so that in this undertaking one is the influencer rather than the one being influenced. I will have to check with one of my friends, but I may have a lead for you, Tiago. Please tell me more specifically what you would do in W.O.W.

I'm sorry you had that experience. I never said it wasn't dangerous. Your warning is really good for those who might go in unprepared, unsupported and uncalled. When Jesus went to seedy places and spent time with sinners, He also spent hours alone with God, and that made the difference. We do befriend non-Christians authentically, not just to evangelize since everyone can tell if someone is really their friend or not. I did not say it was an easy, safe thing to do. I don't know if I could do it myself. Just like any missionary, one has to be called to do this/ be created by God to do this. And, even if called, one must still get prayed up all the time, read the Bible every day, and have a good Christian support system in and out of church. Of course this type of support is essential for anyone who wants to successfully live the Christian life. The idea is to be constantly familiarizing ourselves with God and the Bible so that we can spot anything counterfeit. The only way to not be influenced by the world is to be filled with God so there's no room for ungodly influences. That's the only way Christian movie reviewers keep from being influenced by the secular movies they watch.

So, Tiago do you want me to track down that W.O.W. lead I mentioned in my first comment to this group?

Lydia, good points.

I think the key to all "outreach" is more a matter of listening to The Spirit, being honest, and keeping in mind that when Jesus spoke to sinners, especially the "lowest" of the "low," He didn't point out their issues and shortcomings. He draws out the nobility that is there. God doesn't necessarily want to change everything about us, but redeem everything about us, to take what we have bent into something unhealthy and straighten it into the beauty for which it was intended. It is when He is confronting the hypocrites and the "religious" teachers that He, with holy anger, pointed out their issues and how they were exploiting the people entrusted to their care.
