The Taliban asserted responsibility for the attack, accusing the medical volunteers of being foreign spies and trying to convert Muslims to Christianity, accusations the group denies.
I doubt they were “foreign spies,” but isn’t it sad that a supposedly Christian group, that is witnessing Christ to Muslims in its own way, would not also seek to win them to Christ?
Our politically correct “leaders” tell us to respect other cultures and religions. If Muslims tolerate murderers in the name of Islam, as committed by the Taliban and other jihadis, there is nothing worthy of respect. As for the Christians who deny the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19), they in essence have denied Christ.
The most charitable interpretation is that the group, the International Assistance Mission, in denying that it was handing out bibles, was taking the safe course of action. A course of action that would enable it to continue its mission. If so, God bless them and may they win many Afghans to Christ through their actions.
However, as executive director Dirk Frans said, “it was inconceivable that the medical team was handing out Bibles.” To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, I do not think that word means what Frans thinks it to mean.
One may only hope that along with medical work, any Christian might, somehow, share the Word of God with those who do not know of it.
