Sermon 17: Giving Alms
By Bro. Steven R.
“Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?”-1 Kings 3:9
“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”-Matthew 25:1-13
So, it’s good to give alms unto those who are blind, lame, crippled, or whatever. God says to do it many times over in the Bible, and we should give as unto the Lord when we give. We should however use discernment. Look at who you are giving to and why. You should NOT let your adult children live at home rent free so they can play Halo and Call of Duty on their Xbox! This also doesn’t mean you should enable the able bodied bums in your community!
Lots of losers, ages 20-40, sitting on the edge of the street panhandling! They’re asking for money to buy booze and street drugs! They won’t even take food or anything that would actually help them! They go and dig in dumpsters at Little Caesar’s for old hot and ready pizzas! I have seen this countless times! Digging like savages in the dumpster! Just because they’re too lazy to go out and get a job!!! They can’t even bother to pay $5 for their greasy nasty disgusting pizza!
“Charities” like the wicked works-salvation based “church” the Salvation Army is going around into public property and in grocery stores soliciting tithes to give lazy derelicts three hots and a cot! They don’t even have the decency to refuse to house sodomites with godly men! Effeminate sodomites aren’t even turned away anymore! I’ve seen the shelter in my community and it’s an absolute pig sty! Bodily Waste on the floor in the bathroom, half eaten food in their beds, and they smell like they haven’t taken a shower in months despite having four perfectly working showers in their dorm! There is a reason these sad bums are homeless!!!!! They can’t even get that right, so you should not give them a cent! No more homeless shelters, no more food pantries, no more gas and utility vouchers, no more prescription drug help!
That’s not to mention what the government has done to enable laziness! SSI cash payments for fake disabilities like autism, restless leg syndrome, depression, anxiety, back pain, bipolar disorder, migraines, and the like! Also Obamacare, Medicaid, and Medicare so they don’t have to go out and WORK to see a doctor! The doctor just gives them meds and treatment for their self afflicted ailments they from living wicked lifestyles! Lap band, gastric bypass, tooth extraction, and HIV meds that all could’ve been avoided by obeying Christ! Food stamps that lazy bums either use to buy filet mignon and caviar or Little Debbie snack cakes, soda, and Red Bull! Section 8 housing in urban areas for crack mommas without a baby daddy with their nine kids from four different fathers! More like sperm donors, am I right?!!!! A MAN WHO DARE NOT TAKE CARE OF HIS OFFSPRING IS A WICKED LAZY DERELICT! The Democrats want the state to replace men as fathers! They want to be the provider of all that is necessary! They don’t want godly Baptist churches to discern who really needs help and who doesn’t! That doesn’t fit in their agenda to remove the name of Jesus Christ from the public square and allow all kinds of sins like fornication and sodomy and adultery and idolatry and they want kids to play wicked video games and listen to wicked secular music like this stupid pagan Yuletide song called “Christmas Tree Farm” by that wicked young harlot who hates the things of Almighty God! Let’s do what Jesus would do for able bodied young men and give them JOB APPLICATIONS instead of three hots and a cot and a free cell phone and bus tokens and everything else! Then we should give them the Gospel of Jesus Christ to encourage them to be self sufficient! You’re not doing them a favor by doing otherwise!
