Be Careful

O' Great one, who so gracefully called out others saying those giving to a church do not have genuine faith. By giving to church you suggest we are not blessing and serving the world? Good; because Christians are not called to serve the world. We are called to serve Christ.

Is it churches' responsibilities to provide clean water and housing to the world? Or is its responsibility to spread the Gospel which sometimes can be done through water projects and the like.

If you want to criticize, Americans spend $50 Billon on pets and $10B on cosmetic surgery. Besides, there was $23B in donations to international affairs. How much does the Federal government spend on international affairs? Again, I think there are other folks you could criticize then the people going to church and donating.

What is the 85% internally spent on at churches - American housing and food; American Boys and girls homes; Outreach to older members? You don't know because there is no way to validate the number. Also, do you believe in tithing? Why would you take money away from the church if the Church is the body of Christ?

Obviously your Christian values or wisdom is better than other “Steward” Christians. Might I suggest Matthew 7:3 “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?”

Finally, might I suggest two other things?

1. Write articles on how individuals or churches might spread the word through good deeds not how those who don’t give to international ills have bad faith. I am a John 3:16 kind of guy. So, don’t get deeds confused with belief.

2. Look up what good stewardship is in the bible. Growing God’s Gift is being a good steward. Not sure how your article grows God’s gift.
