Do religions (only) do good to get a supply of converts?


This ostensibly meritorious service programme claims in the same sentence that proselitization is forbidden yet……

Here is their full entry on the issue.

‘Does TMP proselytize?

No. TMP encourages your mentors to think about mentoring like a new job. Most people wouldn’t walk into a new job and hand out tracts and bibles. It is similar with mentoring. We believe it is very important to show up in the life of a child faithfully. During the course of the relationship, values will be both modeled and shared. If a child and his mother (or guardian) end up attending your faith community and following Christ (which often happens).’

Strange last (non) sentence.
