While I was sitting in church today enjoying the weekly service hosted by a guest missionary priest, I had a thought. Once again while I was reviewing the value of God's ministry overseas I pondered what purpose our financial gift might serve. Wouldn't the money do better to serve needy parishioners at home?
Followers of Ron Paul believe in his philosophy that we need to take care of our own, and he makes an excellent point. Government shouldn't be the international charity, actually it shouldn't be a charity at all. If the founders wanted us to be a charity they'd would have created a fourth branch of the government. So as I pondered all this information and added that we are placed upon this earth to serve others, the answer seemed clear. Allow the churches to send missionaries to these foreign shores to spread goodwill and create a culture that teaches love, not hate! The church is equipped to teach the principles needed to direct a culture in a positive direction. Government aid is just like any other government program, it creates dependents and fails to address the problem.
Wouldn't a religious solution be the answer to hate? When malice is pointed towards Americans by foreign cultures it's grounded in a lack of Biblical principles. America's only hope to overcome that discourse is to have those cultures directed toward pious behavior. The government cannot solve this issue. As well meaning as it is, we chase the bad guys away causing collateral damage, (the loss of lives or wounding of civilians), and hatred is born in spite of our good intentions. How about we allow a missionary to empower those citizens with the truth so they can rid themselves of the evil? All that takes is our support!
So next time the plate is passed in church I suggest we all do as I surmised to do today; make a manly donation. A couple of bucks, while every little bit helps, isn't going to solve the problem. If you don't want our government sending financial aid overseas dig deep. Government promotes abuse, waste, and fraud. The ministry of god's word preaches peace and tolerance, the solution is simple....
