Are Churches Helping Poor Members Enough? by godsonadex: 12:33pm On May 12, 2008
I am a bit worried, I think the church has taken it's eyes 'off the ball', if I am wrong, I hope God forgives me. I am a naija guy but been in the UK for 5yrs now, I consider myself to be a christian but when I look at the situation in Naija, I get sad, reason is because the churches are accumulating wealth while their members are living in pure abject poverty, if I recall, in the bible, fellowship is about sharing and making sure your brother or sister is not wanting but of course these mega-churches can see that majority of their members are suffering but they are not helping them, rather, some pastors provoke these people to bring EVERYTHING they have and God will surprise them (but not through the church, oh no!). These churches are becoming enterprising, good, is this money helping it's members I say NOOO!!! These churches are erecting universities and the works, is it helping the common church member?? NOOOOO!!!

I know some very 'STRONG CHRISTIANS' will say if this people are poor, it must be because of their sins or because they can't be helped or that if they really are christians then they shouldn't be poor, I will say to those people to read their bible because in reality, not everyone can be rich and even if these people are sinners, does that give the church the right not to help them

Please guys tell me what you think about this and let me know if I am getting over the top. Cheers 4 reading. God bless.
