Those poor Missionaries by Swashbookler Those poor Missionaries by Swashbookler
You have to give a lot of credit to missionaries serving in 3rd world countries

Wonder what happens if he sneaks away from civilization and finds himself a sea cave?

That water looks like BLOOD. The book of Revelations says the first of the last seven plagues is the water turning into dead man's blood. (red tide, more likely, but poisonous). Actually this book is spurious.

Which is why I am glad I never joined the Mormon church, or ANY church that does missionary work. I have a tract about 12 years old, badly written, saying "your true purpose is to be a HARVESTER (preacher and missionary -my addition)" ,"we will train you", and "mission opportunities for all -home and abroad". They are not universalists by any means ,and oppose Mormons, Witnesses and so on...

None of the requirements insisted on by The Mormon church I can meet, and to go abroad, to a country of their choosing, to eat foreign food, to speak a foreign language that I don't have the brain structure for (maybe I'm autistic....?)and so on. Sorry !

Uh, a member doesn't HAVE to serve a mission, it's optional. But I can understand that it would scare the crap out of a person. It did two of my brothers. They chose not to go and no body freaked out or anything. (mom and dad were disappointed for a while but they're over it a long time ago)

I would feel pressured. I am, however, not a social person and feel that "friends" acquired by becoming a Mormon -or,indeed, any fundamentalist and evangelistic church member- would be "summer friends" - obedient to their church and ready to drop you ,upon the first word of a notice of excommunication from headquarters.

I think that dissenters just quietly dissent rather than be outspoken about what they reject, rather than be excommunicated. I wonder how many excommunicates never return to the flock, but go to some mainstream church.

Tho courted by missionaries, my soul was never there to meet them.
