St. Paul as the Christian model for missionary activity

For obvious reasons, missionary activity is perfectly legitimate within the bounds of a particular world. For St. Paul, who worked within the bounds of the Christian world and was, notably, prevented by the holy spirit from travelling outside that world, we can say that his missionary work was precisely what it should have been and is the model on which all missionary work should be based. This is because he worked within set limits, obedient to the spirit with regard to these limits, and among the people for whom his revelation was intended, which included the Jews as well as various pagan peoples whose religion was in a decadent stage.
