Avoid the problem

Jesus said, "When you saw I was thirsty you gave me something to drink."

John said, "If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." (1 John 3:17-18)

I think the Church has found a loophole. If we wear blinders, or cut ourselves off from the world, we don't have to see anyone in pain, anyone hungry, anyone thirsty. If we don't see them, we're not liable. We don't have to care for them.

Let's take off our blinders.

sounds like Jesus was describing the Pharisee's and I think that we have a remake on our hands today when we look at the church.

So true, may God remove our blinders so that we are able to hear His voice and follow His lead.

Peace, Heather

You give two reasons why conservatives, who usually deem themselves as the most orthodox christians, are in fact the most blasphemous of all.
