Fair enough, aaron! Good luck with your quest. Each to their own and the way they want to live. It´s not for me to judge you - you have put your points well!

The most important thing I've learned from all this is that we now have a new career recommendation to give to all those Americans who post here that they want to move to Germany, but have no relevant skills or knowledge of German.

 

Apparently if you're a Christian missionary, you can get a residence permit! What's more, you can even hold other jobs while you pursue your ministry!

 

Why did nobody think of this before?

Fair enough that Aaron (?) is trying to explain himself, however, for me it's a waste of time. I STILL don't get it...you want to serve Jesus and bring him closer to people? Go where it's needed. We don't need you here.

 

You're wanting to come here because you WANT to - shouldn't you, as a Christian, let GOD decide where he wants to send you if you feel so called to serve? To me, you're being hypocritical. And if your wife cannot even cope with TT, then, for the Love of the Higher Being that you chose to believe in, stay put. You ain't seen nothing yet.

 

I truly admire people who are willing to give up their life and want to serve others, you, however, are only serving yourself under the guise of being "Christian".

Agree. That's why I was asking the visa question. So glad to learn of options other than marriage or teaching English.

I think I'm God, because whenever I meet a TTer for the first time and they find out what my username is, they tend to say, "Oh my God!". Either that or he lives in the penis of the guy in the porn movie I was watching last night, cuz that chick just kept on screaming his name. I guess what I'm saying is, God really is everywhere.

Isn't it funny that at the same time as his church is sending him to Germany to work as a missionary to bring God to the heathen Germans, there is probably a German church funding missionaries to go spread the word in the US. Actually not a bad way for young people to travel, all expenses paid.

 

I have a friend who is a former pentecostal member and he said they sent all kinds of missionaries out into the world and also got a few back. He said he could remember a US missionary chasing a bum off the church porch with a broom as well as when they were living in S-Africa, he said they collected and sent a lot of money to the starving and homeless childen.. in France. As they moved to Germany and joined a church here, they were told about the horrible situation in S-Africa at which time he protested and told them they were not telling the truth about the situation there. Anyway, all of that might have something to do with why he left the church.

The bit I don't get is the "love others". Of the many problems I have with religious people the idea that "god is love" and other such nonsense is perhaps the most offensive. I live a life full of incredible people with huge amounts of love amongst them. No need for God. It's beautiful natural love with no need to be told to love by somebody else.

 

Love is all around us. God isn't.

I'm glad it's all around you, Pas. I wasn't feelin' the love in Hamburg, that's for DAMN sure. If it weren't for my stubborn personality, surely I would have turned to some sort of God. Oh wait, I did. Bacchus. :P

Maybe your unhappy state pushed people away and made it hard for people to love you?

I wonder if Jesus really wanted his word to be spread around the world. During his lifetime his message was for Jews only as in his view the Jewish establishment had strayed from God's (who incidentally was/is also Jewish) path. His mission was to bring redemption to his fellow Jews and to the Land of Israel which was occupied by a foreign power. There have been many other failed Messiahs in Judaism, all with the same mission, the latest was Schneerson who died in 1994. The Jewish fundamentalist settlers in the occupied territories also believe that they are preparing the way for the coming of the Messiah who will redeem the land of Israel. Incidentally the Messiah is immortal, he doesn't just die. That's why Jesus and Christians are considered heretics in Judaism because he wasn't immortal and didn't save the Jews and the Land of Israel.

 

I'm an atheist.

I guess that makes me a naanbeliever.

I don't believe in anything until I see it with my own eyes.. Witnessing Christ on your naan, now that is a conversation piece.

 

still waiting for Buddha to appear

I especially love the flat bread they serve before and during meals.

I'm sorry Aaron and the rest of the missionaries, I guess that makes me a naanbeliever.

 

You call yourself an American? Repent your non-gluttonous European ways and behold the glory of your unworthy Naan Bread deep-fried in oil and reborn into something strikes both love & fear into the souls of the unwashed masses with oppressed taste-buds and hearts that still beat without the aid of pace-makers. Bow DOWN and give PRAISE to the Poori:

Jesus said to his hungry disciples: "You do not need to go away. I'll give you something to eat. I have four slices of toast made in my image. The naanbelievers are on their own."
