Graceless Mission – what price to pay?

Interesting how the world sees us Christians.

I fell upon this extreme but telling article Christian Missionaries in the Muslim World - manufacturing Kufr

"…when natural disasters or war affects the Muslims, we will find the missionaries salivating at the mouths at the opportunity to convert more believers to their false religion. During famines, you will find them swarming to our lands under the cloak of 'aid' or 'relief' work. They will bring aid and relief but it isn't given to the Muslims for free - it does have a price. The price is commit apostasy and join the fold of Christianity…"

"THE 10/40 WINDOW In evangelical jargon they call it the 10/40 window. The 10/40 window is the rectangle with boundaries of latitudes 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator. To the modern day crusaders of the Christian missions it is exactly what China is to the Coca Cola company - one billion people just dying to hear the message. The 10/40 window takes in the newly independent states of Central Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Middle East and part of Africa. This region has become the target of unprecedented efforts by Christian missionaries to convert the Muslims to their religion. Like a cancerous growth, we are seeing Christians gain a foothold in the lands of the believers. The first time these crusading forces came with swords and suits of armour, this time they arrive with credit cards and million-dollar aid cheques…."

Graceless mission…? We have the most powerful message the world has ever seen – it is such a shame when we leave grace out of it.
