Want to find help? Don’t go to a church!

Will the churches help the car dwellers? I think there is a divesity of thinking in the Christian community, just as there is diversity in every other social organization.

But when it comes down to actually helping people improve their standard of life and helping them over the wall of social stigma, I don’t believe that I could find a church that would be willing to go that far to reach out and help a person achieve a better life.

We live in a society of greed and selfishness, this “I got mine” society that thrives upon competition and cheating is allowed here. There are many restrictions being put upon churches and those wanting to help others by insurance companies, local government regulations and even those on a board of elders.

What is sad about this is that those who claim to follow the Bible are not even following the great commission. Many excuses are given why the church can not help the less fortunate.

My own church sends funds all over the world to help missionaries, most who are living better than I am, yet they would not consider helping me get someplace to live instead of the local park bench.

I believe that true charity begins at home. I think the church needs to examine itself and make corrections to what they are doing wrong.

  1. Revelation 3:14

    “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

    These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
