Opening doors in times of need defines Christianity
In the brutally cold weather we have experienced, I sincerely hope that every church in this area opened their doors to the homeless population of Warren County.
Some churches participate in “Room at the Inn,” which provides sleeping accommodations, a hot dinner and breakfast, a place to bathe and to wash their clothing. Frankly, every Christian church in this area should be participating in that program.
This is especially true of any church that claims to a “Christian” church. If they are not already doing something along these lines, then they are not truly Christian at all.
After all, Jesus enjoined all of his followers to see his face in every person in need.
Regardless of denomination, all Christians have an obligation to assist the needy. In this kind of weather, is their anyone more needy that those without warm shelter?
