Hey Bob, using that logic alot of us should have been dead years ago!!!

Let's bring this back to a nautical thread...it's what ever floats your boat!

the best way to share your faith while cruising is by living in such a way that reveals the genuiness of your belief.
When someone starts talking to me about God I check to make sure my wallet is secure. Sorry, got ripped off by two many like that, saw too much pure hate directed by those whose voices are the loudest. Have too many lady friends who were asked for sex by famous preachers.

Man I read this thread and all that seems to be missing are the lions.

Yes of course, missionary, talk about your beliefs. Everyone does that after they've had a cold drink and the stars come up, and you've got just as much right as anyone else.

Guys, The last time sailing and religion mixed, the missionary was Magellan and fate was a poison arrow. My advice...believe what you want to, but when the natives start chucking spears...take your bible, notebook, whatever, and head for the hills.....er...waves.

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
It is absolutley okay for the OP to believe in whatever faith / God / system / religion he adheres to. It is 100% right that he should have the freedom to live according to his beliefs, as long as those beliefs do not infringe on anyone else's freedoms to live as they choose. I just think that this is an inappropriate venue to raise the issue of religion in.

The topic is a more inflamatory than most others, and tends to polarise people. If there is sufficient interest among the participants here, perhaps they could set up a separate forum for Christians who cruise and like to debate amongst themselves about whether a cloth-bound or vinyl-bound Bible is preferable in a salt-water environment.

I just take issue with the topic being raised in the "Cruising" forum, as the OP was not asking about Cruising, but was asking about whether others engaged in proselytizing when they arrived in foreign countries.

I think it would be just as unsuitable if someone were to post a thread asking if anyone else covered their significant other in Russian Dressing and beat them with a loaf of French bread, once the anchor was set.

Either way - if it floats your boat go for it - but understand it's an ancillary activity that appeals to a very select few and can raise the ire of many others, so please, don't share !
