Should Christians Help the Poor?

Should Christians Help the Poor?

Ratings: (0)|Views: 142 |Likes:
Should Christians help the poor? To some the answer is an obvious, “Yes”. Other Christians will cite scriptures about the importance of preaching the gospel to the world, feeding the flock—the church and caring for one’s own household. The scripture teaches these things. But where are the priorities? Do we preach the gospel, feed the flock or take care of our household first and only help the poor if we have something left? Or is it the other way around?
The Bible has a lot to say about the subject. This author studied all of the New Testament Scriptures that he could find—most of which are referenced somewhere in this article. By looking them all up, one can know the Bible’s teaching. This author was surprised to find that the scripture has numerous commands to help, as we are able (Acts 11:29; Gal 6:9; 2Cor 9:7), both poor believers and unbelievers, and that our entry into God’s kingdom is partly based upon that...!
