Yesterday, on Saturday, July 11, 2020, a report was published describing how the Pope John XXIII Foundation and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) have “partnered” to promote “cultural” development among the indigenous peoples.  Seventh-day Adventists and Roman Catholics have “partnered” to meet the needs of the Warao Indians of Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and Brazil. And what are the needs of the Warao Indians? Well, this generation certainly doesn’t have the same burdens that our pioneers shared. The new needs for modern man, according to these humanitarian organizations, are certainly not spiritual.
So what do ADRA, the Seventh-day Adventist humanitarian organization, and the Pope John XXIII Foundation have in common? Dance, dance, dance and more dancing! This is the problem with these modern humanitarian ministries. They have become empty and meaningless as their biblical mission has been replaced with human sentimentalism. We have changed Christ’s compassion (Matthew 9:36; 14:14) with a worldly, relativistic “compassion” that is not compassionate.
Instead of imitating the compassion of Christ, these ministries dedicated to humanitarian work today never speak of sin, never speak of repentance and never show concern for the destiny of the soul. Their sole purpose is to make others happy by having fun and making people feel good. Their version of the gospel is that Jesus came into this world and hugged people and said, “You are fantastic. There is no need to change anything. Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you later in heaven.”
The published report read in part:
The program included presentations of traditional and contemporary dances, traditional games and drawing and painting workshops.
We are presenting the culture of the June party with cooking workshops and traditional dances.
The program also included parallel activities such as a food workshop, presentations by Warao mimes, presentation of contemporary dance by young people, traditional dances such as carimbó and quadrilha.
I feel very good doing the activities and I have already learned many things like the foods here. I also enjoyed dancing. 
Valceni Marques, Seventh-day Adventist representative and coordinator at ADRA, served as a caterer for the big dance party. While Rome taught the natives to dance, Seventh-day Adventists served them snacks. Valceni Marques not only provided food clinics, but she also prepared meals and drinks for the participants. In the published report, Valceni Marques also talked about ADRA’s association with the Pope John XXIII Foundation. 
In the video above you will see an example of the traditional dance of Carimbó. The new relativistic “compassion” expressed by these “humanitarian” organizations is more concerned with teaching the natives how to dance “Carimbó” than with knowing Christ. Carimbó is a traditional and sensual dance that originated in northern Brazil and dates back to the colonial era.  And this is what we are now teaching the natives? Missionaries used to teach the natives about Christ and His gospel. ADRA has now partnered with Rome to promote “cultural” African drum beats and hip movements. Is this what it means to be compassionate and loving today?
Real concern and compassion desires to see people go to heaven. That is a godly and biblical compassion. Christians are supposed to echo the words of Christ as if Jesus were on this earth addressing these poor souls Himself. What would Jesus do in this situation? What would He say? Would He be so kind and polite as to tolerate everything, while ignoring the sinner’s true spiritual need? Of course, not.
If we become satisfied with seeing that people have as much fun as possible in this life, there will be a price to pay one day. Unrepentant sinners will still be destroyed by sin in the end. Men, women and children who do not know Christ or His gospel will still be lost. This new, false “compassion” is actually hurting people. It’s not preparing anyone for eternity; it is only making people feel happy here on earth, while neglecting to prepare them spiritually for Christ’s soon return. In reality, we are actually making people feel comfortable while leading them to their own destruction.
“I was shown that the blood of souls will be on the garments of very many who now feel at ease and irresponsible for souls that are perishing around them for want of light and knowledge. They have come in contact with them, but have never warned them, never prayed with or for them, and never made earnest efforts to present the truth to them. I was shown that there has been a wonderful negligence on this point” (Publishing Ministry, p. 369).
