To my Awesome Anonymous Commenter:
Honestly, I think you and I have our hearts on the same page, but we are looking at diffierent solutions. Your solution is to do what you can as an individual. My solution is to work with the government. I totally believe that it is the church’s responsibility to take care of the poor. I also believe that we aren’t doing enough in tearing down barriers and being real with people.
The governement isn’t necessarily being real with people either. They say, “Oh, you are showing us you need money. Here you go.” They aren’t really getting to the heart of the issue or adequately equipping the poor.
But at least they are doing something.
