    Jesus stressed the need to help the poor and needy. It's a powerful commandment, but there are those who would warp it to meet their own agendas (rather than God's). But how would they do that?

    OPEN: Chicago is just about to approve a new entitlement. They intend to give 1,000 unemployed families $500 per month with no strings attached (total of $6 million per year).

     | 2,179 views

    We have 2 advantages over non-Christians. Because of God's blessings in our lives, we are better off than many in this world, but we must be careful not to see ourselves as being "better" than others.
