[quote]What are the circumstances this would happen? [/quote] Very common. I'd say more than half of the people that go to such schools end up not being placed. Sometimes they get office work, sometimes they get support work. The fact that neither went to seminary would cause me not to supp...

[quote]For what success rate?[/quote] This is the problem of most mission work. How do you define success? Because "converting lost souls" isn't likely to happen. I can get a hungry villager to say anything or listen to me talk for an hour about anything for a loaf of bread for his family. ...

[quote]You ask them what they'll be doing and they say they don't know, that's why they're going to the school. [/quote] That's what stood out to me. Personally, I would speak to their home pastor to make sure their home church is validating the call. I have never known of a church to validate ...

[quote]Look up Radius International, that's the program [/quote] Radius is a fine program for this. The point is that your sister and her husband may not be receiving a true call for this type of work. The fact that you are questioning it may in fact be God's way of telling them that it isn't. ...

[quote]From a charitable perspective, yes. From a evangelism perspective, the ambitions are clearly different. [/quote] But here's the problem. It might be a stodgy way to look at things but its my opinion. If you go to a impoverished area and give bible lessons or whatever before you give fo...

[quote]I agree with you on short term mission work being a good option. My wife and I go on a short term trip each year with our Church (Baptist). However, our Church wants persons going on the trip that are active with a ministry within the Church here. If you aren't being faithful in serving local...

I say this as a Christian. WAY TOO MANY people are doing this "on a whim." I just had some friends that came back from South America after two years. They sold everything they owned and now they are back. Now, this isn't popular with the megachurch and Baptist crowd that I live around, but the...

I have a theory that the vast majority of the world's problems can be solved with five or six simple truths. I'm not sure what all of them are, but one is definitely "There are consequences for your actions." I was just grabbing a bite to eat at a local place and caught a glimpse of a news story....

Not super dumb, but had to go way further than I wanted to in college to settle an argument. We're driving down the road and she asks me why some lines were dotted and some were solid. I explained to her that dotted meant that you could pass and solid meant that you couldn't. This girl had be...
