So Many Churches, So Little Help
Dear Brother Ron
Would you want to go and
worship in a church that turns people down for
help, and food because they are not a " member"
of that church? I see this too many times and it
has made me decide to leave a church I have been
going to for years, and I was even baptized
there. I can't imagine God turning down people
because they were not " members" In fact, Jesus
did the opposite. How can a church who is
teaching God's word turn down people in need?!
What do you think?
Maybe I should add that
this is a mega church with many smaller churches
in town. The message is wonderful, I was
baptized there and always gave with a giving
heart. My husband lost his job, and I work as
hard as I can but it is not enough. He found
another job taking a 50% pay cut, but it's
something and a blessing. I called the church to
try to get assistance in food and they turned me
down because I never took the 8 hour class to
become a " member" It broke my heart, and I keep
praying. Now my pantry is full because of an
angel at my job, however I really think it's sad
my own church turned me down.
not a church, it's a club.
They are only interested in
helping members of the club.
I can understand the Board
of Deacons wanting to
restrict limited resources
to members in need but if
there are no members in
need, why not do as Yeshua
Of course, they could also
be using their aid as a
marketing tool. Join the
club and we will help you.
If you don't, you're on your
own. Great marketing, lousy
