    I am posting this here hoping the moderators will leave it rather than move it to the missions/evangelism forum. The reason for this is that few of you post there, and I have the impression that a good number of you do not go there. If it were in the missions forum, the answers would be skewed, I feel. So, here goes.

    What is your score?

    0-2: Read the Book of Acts again. Are you sure you know what a missionary is? :sleep:

    3-4: You are starting to get the picture. Try memorizing the Great Commission in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John or Acts.

    5-6: You are above average as a Christian. May God increase your vision. :praying:

    7-8: Careful! You are in danger of being called to be a missionary! :smilewinkgrin:

    9-10: Wow! May God richly bless you for your burden and actions. :thumbs:

    Missions are VERY special to me. It was a mission minded man who helped in my coming to Christ. It was 4 missionminded men who visited me in prison. And it was a mission minded man who trained me for my Bachelor of Divinity. And it is missions which compels me to return to the prisons and jails and preache weekly.:thumbs:

    Sadly, what many churches call missions is pathetic. We ought to be doing much more both in Judea, Samaria, and the uttermostparts of the earth.
