Christian Welfare

 

The straying by the Church from the Gospel of the Kingdom and the directives of Christ has brought the whole world into ignorance, entangling the people again into bondage.

“Thus the Church is, both by commission and by omission, author of the welfare state...Government has undertaken to do what conscience, tutored out of the Scriptures, demands but fails, through the Church, entirely to achieve.”238

Of course the government of the world did not undertake at all what conscience demands. The Church was the social welfare system of Christ to feed and care for His flock, which hears His voice. Its ministers were the benefactors of the people, by the free will offering given by the people, for the people seeking His kingdom. Those souls repentant of the sin of ruling over their neighbor and brother came together seeking the righteousness of God in pure religion.

The world had its impure religion that was run by men who called themselves benefactors, but were not. The benefits they offered were provided through the extracted offerings of the people or by debt and surety of the people.

It was also stated that “The Church brought about the welfare state in two ways:..the Church... demands charity and justice for the poor.”239 That is also not true. Even Jesus said:

“For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good:...” Mark 14:7

And the Church said:

“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10

The word of God demands that we should not covet anything that is our neighbor’s and that we should not be like the men who call themselves benefactors but who exercise authority. And the Corban of the Pharisees made the word of God to none effect.
