American missionary wrote ‘God, I don’t want to die’ before being killed by remote tribe
You have seen me say this many times before; don’t go where you don’t belong!! If you heed my words, your chances of living a lot long are increased dramatically.
Who the hell were the tribesmen bothering? They lived happily for centuries under the same conditions, insulated from the rest of the world before some missionary came along, attempting to upset their apple cart trying convert them. WHY???
John Allen Chau, the American missionary who was killed by an isolated tribe on a remote Indian island, reportedly wrote in his journal hours before his death, “God, I don’t want to die.”
Chau, 26, of Vancouver, Wash., chronicled his last days while traveling to the Andaman Islands. He was intent on making contact with the Sentinelese tribe on North Sentinel Island, according to his journals shared by his mother with the Washington Post.
“You guys might think I’m crazy in all this but I think it’s worthwhile to declare Jesus to these people,” he wrote in a last note to his family on Nov. 16, shortly before he left the safety of the fishing boat to meet the tribesmen on the island. “God, I don’t want to die.”
Chau did not know how prophetic he would be.
It has happened time and time again where some converters went in search of an isolated tribe that has never seen anyone outside their own people. The do-gooder/ missionary interferes in their life trying to convert them to believe in the god he/she believes in. WHY??
I have made this observation many times before. IF there is a god, there is only one. Catholic, Buddhist, Hindu, they all have the same god, the just address them differently. All of these different ideologies where contrived by man, not a god.
As far as the natives go, their god is the sun, the moon, the stars and nature.
The ironic part of this vast scheme for supremacy; the natives are a lot wiser for worshiping their gods in the manner they do; where the conventional religions were instituted to put fear in people and generate $oldi.
Tell me, what business does any missionary have trying to convert the natives. Ignorance.
If they were successful in their conversion attempts; along with their god they brought sickness and death for many tribes people because they severely altered their way of living.
The same thing happened with Columbus when he discovered (if he really did) America.

Oct 10, 1992 – news · technology · space · physics · health · environment · mind … New World on 12 October 1492, more native North Americans died each year from infectious diseases brought by European settlers than were born. … But why, asked a perplexed French missionary working … why the lack of immunity?
The natives were perfectly healthy and happy before the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria hit the shores of North America.
I am not rejoicing the death of John Allen Chau; BUTT I will say, if he didn’t go where he didn’t belong, today he would be sitting down with his family having a turkey dinner, instead of him being the main course.
My cliche, don’t go where you don’t belong, can be a life saver to some if they would only apply it.
It is always better to be the diner instead of the dinner.
