Sometimes I wonder how Christians Can be so uncaring to the poor as they live in nice houses they don’t need and drive cars they don’t need. Do you really need that giant mansion? Do you really need all those cars? Why not sell some of those Cars and Drive a reasonably priced car? Why not sell that big house you don’t need and buy a smaller one? Give the money you made off selling all these things and give to the hungry. Give to a ministry that preaches the TRUE Gospel to countries that don’t know Jesus. We are commanded by Jesus to give to the poor.
Matthew:19:21: Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
Mark:10:21: Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
Luke:19:8: And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
We as Christians are commanded to preach the Gospel to all the nations. However some of us are not able. So the ones who are not able to travel are to support the Ministries who do. I heard it explained this way once. The ones in the pits preaching the Gospel holding the rope should have scars on their hands.. The ones outside the Holding the ropes for the ones in the pits should have scars on their hands too.
Mark:16:15: And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Col:1:23: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
