As humans participating in the mission of God, our portion of the work is riddled with mistakes and failures though, of course, God has often used us to transform societies around the world. The spread of Christianity around the world could not have happened without humans being carriers of the Gospel. Some great things have happened as men and women partnered with God in mission. Nevertheless, in all honesty, since the 1500s, the work of God's mission has been closely connected to European expansionism. The Christian faith has been used to justify the domination of huge parts of the world by the people of Europe. The gospel itself has been used, knowingly and unknowingly, to rationalise slave trade and colonialism.
