Examiner.com article: Who will care for “those people”?

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “Who will care for ‘those people’?

If you’ve never read one of my Examiner.com articles before, please read this article. (If you have read some of my Examiner.com articles before, please read this article.)

To me, this article points to the main problem in “Christianity” today. I put the word Christianity in quotes, because I’m not convinced that a person who refuses to demonstrate love for his/her actual neighbors can be classified as a follower of Christ. (Didn’t James say that kind of faith was dead? And didn’t John say that person does not know the love of God?)

Anyway, here’s a brief excerpt from the article:

I walked over to him and introduced myself. He asked if we were a church, and I told him that we were part of a church and that we were raking leaves to help our friends who lived in the housing development. He told me that he was part of another church in the area.

Then, he said something that I will never forget. He said, “I’m glad that someone is helping those people”…
