The Original Religion of Micronesians: Is it Christianity?
There has been enough discussion on why Muslims or other faiths should not be allowed in Micronesia. My question is that is Christianity really the religion of the original Micronesians? I am afraid, not so. Christianity has only come to the Islands much later in 18 or 19 hundreds.
Before Christianity, what was the religion of our forefathers for thousands of years? Are we Christians because it was the only faith brought to our Islands? What if Buddhists or Hindes or Muslims had come here before the Christian missionaries. Had we been converted to the other faiths then? Did our forefathers have enough knowledge about the Bible before accepting it or was it the only option available?
I would like to know what you think about.
