Biblical Pillars for Mercy Ministry

The Christian duty to the poor is not always as clear as how some Bible teachers state.  On the one hand, stories like the Good Samaritan seem to advocate a radical dedication to the poor and abused.

Let's face it, though.  Many, if not most, of the American poor choose poverty.  Other verses comport with our common sense on the matter: "If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat" (2 Thes 3:10).

Those who appeal to Moses create more confusion.  Is Israel's call to social justice a 1:1 call to the church?

Cripplegate is launching a new series on the biblical pillars for mercy ministry, and I recommend subscribing and following it to help you sort through these issues.
