"Habitat has successfully removed the stigma of charity by substituting it with a sense of partnership. The people who will live in the homes work side by side with the volunteers, so they feel very much that they are on an equal level."
-Jimmy Carter


It isn't that people don't want to use their tax dollars to help the poor, it is the ones that feel entitled and don't want to do anything to help themselves people have a problem with.  Even Jimmy Carter thought they should do more to help themselves.   That is one of the reasons I love Habitat, they are working with others to build their own home and paying for their own home minus all the interest from the bank fees.  My Church builds a habitat home every year as do most of the Churches in our area.

I like that program as well. If you want the house, you should invest your time and energy into it

Exactly, they are getting a hand up, not a hand out.

I disagree. Helping the poor was going on long before Christianity was established. The Egyptians used to have buildings at the entrance to the city where poor could go and get food. The Babylonians and Israelites would take in strangers who were in need. Even today many of the Bedouin tribes will take in those who are in need.


Helping the poor has nothing to do with any one religion.

It's a true statement.

Jesus also never said to make judgments about people before helping them.
