As for religion, I go to church myself, but I am greatly dissapointed in some of the things that the churches do.
Things are worse in this country,than a lot of people think,and there are a lot of people that need help,morally and financially. You can drive around day after day and see it if you will just look for it. It says in the bible that whatsoever you do for the least of them, that you do for me also.
When I was a kid the churches used to go to see people,ask them if they could help them, and try to get then to go to church. A lot of them don`t seem to want to do this anymore.
If it is a rich guy,that makes a big donation on Sundays,they will go to see him to see why he hasn`t shown up, but a lot of them forget about their poor brothers. I also do not understand why most of them want to spend so much money overseas, when there is so much to do here. I am not saying they should stop missionary work,but they should do something here also.
We have places in Kentucky and West Virginia that will almost compare to some of the places overseas. People in those places are going hungry,and they also don`t have enough food to eat.
All a lot of the churches seem to want to do today, is build larger and larger buildings.
They think , well the Baptist`s building seats 500 people, were going to build one that seats 750. There is nothing wrong with having a nice place to worship, but I think that they are carrying this to far.It says in the bible that wherever two or more are gathered together in my name, there will I be also.
All of us in this country need to examine ourselves, I think that there is a lot more that I, and everyone can do, to help our fellow man, and that we should all try to treat everyone, the way that we would want someone to treat us, if we were in the same situation. This is the richest nation in the world,and there is no excuse for some of the things that are going on in this country today.
I am not rich, I am just a middle class working man, but if I can help someone along the way,I will try my best to. I don`t have a lot of money to donate to organizations,but I always try to donate to the Salvation Army. I try to give them some when I can. I think that they are sincere and are really trying to help people. I guess if I had enough to donate to someone else, it would be Feed The Children.
