Dave: Jeff, you were born in America.
Dave: And you’re a Christian!
Dave: But, if you were born in India, you might be a Hindu!
Dave: Yep? Is that all? Doesn’t that mean something is wrong with our religion?
Jeff: Whether or not a religion is true doesn’t have anything to do with where
people were born.
Dave: Right! The question we should ask is whether or not Jesus actually rose
from the dead, not “what did my Grandpa believe?”
Jeff: If some people are concerned that Christianity is an American religion, they
might be glad to know the facts…
Dave: Percentage-wise, there are more Christians in Rwanda and Serbia!
Jeff: and South Africa, Ethiopia, and Tonga!
Dave: Bahamas, Sweden, Zambia!
Jeff: Norway, Romania and Uzbeki…
Dave: I think they get the point. Christianity is not an American, or even Caucasian
Jeff: Knowing that other countries have religions besides Christianity doesn’t
invalidate anything; it should encourage us to spread the name of Jesus.
Dave: If this is a concern of yours, perhaps God is asking you to consider missions?
