Christ taught us that the poor will always be with us. He called us to clothe the naked, feed the poor, visit the imprisoned, care for the widow and orphan. But when the Church grows lax in her mission of mercy, it won’t be long before the Nanny-State ambles along offering her services to solve the problems of poverty, suffering, and broken homes. When charity becomes the task of godless bureaucracy you can guarantee that you will end up with very little true charity and instead you’ll have endless bureaucratic hallways.
The Church must return to God’s instructions for caring for the poor. Join us for Christ Church’s annual Missions Conference, as we look to God’s Word for our marching orders for bringing true charity and extending true mercy to the poor among us.
