Maybe people aren't getting help because they don't ask for it? We had a guy come into our church who couldn't pay his utility bill, and someone in the church paid it for him. That is because he asked. Nobody took credit for it, but it was taken care of. If nobody noticed you, why didn't you get their attention? Why didn't you walk into their church? I wouldn't have turned a homeless man away had they come into my church. Some of these criticisms seem unfair to me. Now I realize there are churches where you would have been turned away or seen as undesirable. I have no doubt of that, but I feel confident that wouldn't have been true everywhere.

Rejoice , CLETUS , REJIOCE that we were not raised in theologies of mens seminaries . REJOICE that we are not seen as wise by many . Rejoice and leap for joy
when most think we are dumb and unlearned. For the wisdom of GOD is foolishness to those who are mighty and wise in their own sight .
They have built up their own pedastools and love the praise and recognition of men , to be seen and love titles like DR , DR , RABBI ,
REJOICE that we are not accepted by men . REJOICE that we are cast out . REJIOCE that we seem as fools to the wise . For they are wise IN THEIR OWN SIGHT .
And praise the LORD , for though we may seem as ignorant , for though we know we know not all, IN CHRIST we KNOW THE ONE WHO DOES KNOW ALL.
AND HIS Wisdom given us in CHRIST is a honey to the soul , as a flavor that no taste can compare too.
REJOICE CLETUS . OH I SAY REJOICE .
