You’re approaching an intersection, any intersection, and you see a person standing there with a cardboard sign. It says something like; “Have 17 children, wife two dogs, three cats and no job, anything will help. God bless.”
What “God” are they talking about? David, in Psalm 37:25 said that he had “never seen the righteous begging bread.” Why did David say that? The church, if it’s a good and a legitimate church, takes care of its own so they don’t have to beg.
It’s safe to say that these street corner beggars never darken the door of a legitimate church. They don’t want to be held accountable for their behavior, and a legitimate church will hold its members accountable. These are the kinds of people who camp out under bridges instead of seeking a shelter because a shelter won’t allow them to imbibe in drugs or liquor. Occasionally, these street corner beggars are actually well off and own a vehicle and a home, and they are just being disingenuous in their presentation.
Whatever the case, they are frauds for invoking a blessing from God, because they don’t know God, and they don’t want anything to do with Him. They are trying to play to their audience which is a bunch of dumb Christians and fake Christians who don’t understand what true Christian charity is, so they throw their money at these frauds in order to assuage some guilt that has been heaped upon them by the corporate fake news, sleazy leftists, subversive pastors, and society in general.
Give your money to a good church in your tithe, and it will be used to truly help lift people up. Give it arbitrarily to these frauds, and it will get poured down their gullet or shot up their arm.
