From an etic perspective and as a Christian myself, I understand the missionaries objective to save their souls from eternal damnation for the worship of idols (Nowak & Laird, Case Study: Social Organization, 2010). I believe the missionaries had a truly honest endeavor to educate them about the truth and separate myth from fact. This should not have completely dismissed nor discredited their traditional religious culture, but it should have enhanced it adding knowledge to their spiritual wisdom, therefore allowing discernment to manifest.
