why defend the church when they are wrong but show no compassion for the lost?

I notice that the church has a bad habit of knocking the world for the wrong they do but defend the church by using the scripture don't judge and remove the plank from your own eye when they do the same exact sin. Isn't this the reason Jesus stayed on the Pharisees for? playing the hypocritical card. I'm a follower of Christ and to be honest, I'm tired of the church pointing fingers at the world when they are not going out and ministering to the lost and trying to use scripture to justify their lazy ways. instead of using scripture to justify your wicked ways, get out there and do something that Christ commands. He doesn't say go to the nursing homes and the prison. he doesnt say donate your money. he want the church to donate time. TIME. The world is not getting spiritual food by your donation. If you can sit in front of your television to watch a game or read a book, you can spend some time with the lost. and just in case you ask, I am out here daily ministering to the lost. not just sunday, but seven days a week.

If the church you are going to is as you describe, then you need to look for a strong bible based church that has an emphasis on mission work. Read Pauls letters to the 7 churches. And also what Jesus said to the churches in Revelation. Not everyone in that church will be doing the same thing, as God gave us all different talents. He expects us to use these talents. So we all will give a different witness. 1Cr 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ. Some may witness by singing in the choir. Tthis can lift the hearts of others to do more work for God. Some may give theri time by being members of a prison fellowship, or visiting the housebound, Others may be missionaries to other countries and peoples. Some may even spend time in R&S in YA. and talk about their faith and beliefs. God Bless

the finished tale is a load. The Pharisees, traditionally, weren't even corrupt. They understood the spirit of the regulation particularly nicely, and weren't the robotic ignorant stiff undesirable men that the hot testomony fairly lies approximately. Nor have been the scribes corrupt. The Sadducees have been nevertheless. So in the previous you circulate affirming a e book it is thoroughly erroneous traditionally, that's truly useful to accomplish a little investigating and examine on your guy or woman. fairly do no longer take something the hot testomony teaches approximately Jews or Judaism as precise. maximum of that's amazingly, very detrimental and slanderous, to boot being ridiculously erroneous. Jesus did no longer show the reality. The thoughts in the hot testomony the place Jesus is rebuking the Pharisees have been written that way on objective to demonize the Jews as Christianity moved to take over political potential (which contain economic, land, and converts from the pagan populations) from the Jews. each and every time a clean faith is composed of take over from an previous one, the hot one continuously demonizes the previous - its an exceedingly useful propaganda gadget.

I think you're looking at the wrong churches....My church cares for the lost. We do minister to the community we are in. Most people here if you just say the name of the Church know us. We are part of the Body of Christ and as such are ministering where we are needed.

The Catholic Church was created for sinners, not the self righteous. Jesus also states that if your brother or sister is in sin you should tell me and if they won't listen, then bring several Christians together to bring your brother or sister back to Jesus Christ teachings, and if they STILL won't listen, take the issue to the Church. If after much discussion they still will not renounce sin, shake the dirt from your shoes and leave them alone.

And gather food collections for homeless and that is not considered compassion for the lost. Also are you stating that the Preist giving lectures and teaching the followers the word of God is not devotion of Time? I think you beter rethink this statement for if your criticizing the church or anyone who believes. I would consider that a sin for insulting anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ or thier relligion.

Honey why do you think you alone are working for God. Many Christians are doing more then lip service. Remember you go where God calls you, you do what God tells you. I was not called to stand on a street corner to preach the gospel. But I would if God told me to. Christians are working very hard to do the work ,God called them to do.In my church of 1,500 only 120 people are volunteer's. But they will answer to God . More then anything God wants our love. When you love someone ,you seek to please them. If they really love God , they will have a desire to work. Pray for them. Keep your own heart focused on Jesus. God keep you blessed.<><

jesus does imply that we visit the sick and the imprisoned, also thousands of people put their effort and time into doing works of charity. "me thinks you protest to much." as the saying goes, also you are judging people you know nothing about. it is good that you do good work, but as jesus also said , "don't let your right hand know what the left hand is doing." and donating to charity is giving alms as jesus also said
