      It is probably reasonable to note that the colonial scramble for and in Africa had its main support from the Christian missionaries. Colonialism had to walk the path of missionary deception and.   Alexis de Tocqueville, for example, made a case for colonialism that did not rely on the idea of a “civilizing mission.” Tocqueville recognized that colonialism probably did not bring good government to the native peoples, but this did not lead him to oppose colonialism since his support rested entirely on the way it benefited France.

      The most vital contact which the pagan world had with the Christian world came, not through complete Christians, but unfortunately, through the colonizers. The colonial regimes of the Western powers in the mission countries have created a strained social relationship, not only between the East and the West, but what is more tragic, between. Christianity and colonialism are often closely associated because Catholicism and Protestantism were the religions of the European colonial powers and acted in many ways as the "religious arm" of those powers. According to Edward Andrews, Christian missionaries were initially portrayed as "visible saints, exemplars of ideal piety in a sea of persistent savagery".

      This chapter considers the controversial relationship of Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox Christian missions to colonialism during the long nineteenth century. Missionaries have been caricatured as cultural or political imperialists, or agents of a hegemonic globalizing capitalism. Many accounts have, however, neglected the intellectual and theological substructures of . In the Congo, it was the missions that undertook the campaign to transform—they used the term “civilize”—the African into an imitation black European. It is easy to see why the role of Christian missionaries in Africa has been assailed by many writers and social scientists as having abetted and aided colonial oppression and exploitation.
