George,

Your role play is interesting. Fortunately, I have never been involved with Christians who try to separate new converts from their families and all of their friends. We have, on the other hand, had to encourage some new converts to continue in patience and love with some difficult family members and work relationships.

The individualistic mindset that I am referring to, is when new converts, and even those who have been Christians for years, tend to go it on their own, in a self-centered fashion. In cultures that are more community minded, new believers might not have this problem as often.

Your principle of asking what Jesus has taught would work here also. That is a good point, of getting us to see how we are actually responding to Him.

Hi,

I am leaving for Sumatra, Lord willing Saturday morning. I'll be looking for my wife's birth mother (along with my wife of course, visiting a Church Planting school, and some other relatives, Lord willing.

I asked David Anderson to moderate the board while I'm gone. Would you like to help him?

Please respond ASAP.
