Proclaiming the Mantle of God

As a person of faith I usually refrain from making to many posts of a religious nature. I believe we each have to choose our faith or lack of. If we choose faith we have to choose the path that seems right in our very souls. Whatever the case it is our will and choice.

So much recently I keep hearing those who seek influence and power proclaim their view of God's will. This in it's self is disturbing to me that anyone proclaims to know Gods will on anything beyond their own life. What's more disturbing is proclamations that hurt others.

Allow me oh Christian brothers and sisters remind you of some things you seem to be forgetting. To those of you who are not Christian or even believers I'm sorry but this must be said to some stray folk.

Leviticus 23:22

When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the alien. I am the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 14:28-29

At the end of every third year you shall bring out all the tithe of your produce in that year, and shall deposit it in your town. The Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance among you, and the alien, the orphan and the widow who are in your town, shall come and eat and be satisfied, in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.  

Deuteronomy 15:8

but you shall freely open your hand to him, and shall generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.

Matthew 5:42

Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

Timothy 6:18

Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,

John 3:17

But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?

Romans 14:13

Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this--not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother's way.

2nd Corinthians 9:6-7

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Now I could go on with many more passages but I shall not. I am not here to judge but remind you of your Christian duty since some of you seek to proclaim it so vehemently.  The poor, the needy, the lame, the hurt, and the widow are going without. Give or do not, it is your choice and your actions make God's.

To my other readers who may have gotten to this point please regardless of religion or belief  lift those up around you, tend the sick, defend the weak, and love all.

Love is Never Wrong!
