“Evangelism and Colonization”

A Muslim woman from east Africa recently reminded me: “Get their minds and you get everything else.”

That’s colonization.

Christianity is guilty of it.

Wait! We’re not just talking geographically. We’re not just talking about physical borders and cultures and peoples.

We’re also talking about ideas, ways of being, ways of life.

When we assume superiority, then dominate, control, appropriate, and exploit others, that’s colonization.
