Folks go on missions in foreign countries. Doesn't that seem odd when 3/4 of their own community don't believe as they do?

    It really is odd, and it illustrates to what desperate extremes 

    they will go in their thinking that they will find favor with God.

    It "don't"?  You're wrong.  3/4 of my community "do" believe in God.

    What most amuses me is the fundies going on mission trips to South and Central America, places that are more heavily Christian than the US.

    They are brainwashed to be that way, that is how some cults work.

    No there is nothing odd about it.  The Western world has had plenty of opportunity to accept Christ as Saviour, even if it were only Christmas (Christ's birth celebrated) or Easter (Christ's resurrection from the dead which is celebrated) which got them thinking or asking questions about God and Christ, so in the Western world, we have no excuse.

    Many foreign lands however, if they were born Muslim or Hindu etc., or if they have never heard the gospel whatsoever, they NEED missionaries to go and preach the gospel to them, because Jesus isn't coming back until EVERYONE has at least HEARD the gospel and had the opportunity to come to Christ and be saved.

    That's what God is waiting for.  He has told us it's not His will that anyone perish but that all should come to repentance, so He's waiting to make sure everyone's had their chance to accept Him and JEsus Christ the Saviour and be saved.

    The Bible says, the Gospel will be preached in all the world and THEN THE END WILL COME, so the quicker it gets done the better.(Matthew 24:14)

    I have no idea what you're on about.

    Who goes on missions?

    3/4 of which community?
