Good point Mr. Carter

I'm sure many will say 'teach a man to fish' but it's hard to be that simplistic in a developed nation of 300+ million where corporations are people that get the first breaks...

Why can't a Christian help them with their own money and believe the less money the government takes in and spends is the best thing for the economy?

 But there is nothing unChristian about holding persons accountable either.

I am a Christian and believe that the Lord is the only one to count my accountability.  Why do so many think they have been given the power glory and wisdom necessary to make judgement on a person accountability amongst other things?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Jesus never said those who give to those who are accountable will recieve favor!

He did say the it was easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of The Lord.

Because they don't.

Look at where the most per population of welfare dollars are spent- the red states and Bible Belt. All those "religious" folks are not meeting the needs presented within their own communties.
