What if Haiti Happens Here? Commentary...

Posted by Judy Hannestad in Untagged 

Commentary by CEN Founder and President Mary Marr

In the teachings of Jesus, He repeatedly commanded His followers to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and shelter those in need.

The Apostle Paul consistently reinforces in his epistles the importance of the Church coming together to take care of those in need.

I am not aware of any verses where apostles were told Rome was to clothe the naked or care for the destitute. Consistently, Jesus' message was the Church should do this. Following this model, Christian Emergency Network (CEN) believes Christians must look at donations flowing through the Church and Christian ministries where aid is delivered in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ rather than on behalf of the “state.”
