Jesus doesn’t allow his people to choose between the deserving & the undeserving poor, the documented & the undocumented homeless & hungry.
God is...a man on a cross, loving people who don't love him. That's God.
Dear Mark (or, if you prefer, The Reverend Mr. Brown): I gather that you are the closest thing that Donald Trump has to a preacher, judging from your performance at the RNC in Cleveland a couple of weeks ago. You and I have never met, though I am a native of South Carolina. I’ve never been to your Harvest Praise & Worship Center in Easley but I have been known to be a preacher and a teacher of preachers and I have visited in Easley.

Jesus does not come to us to relieve us of all yokes or burdens; rather, he comes offering us a yoke worth wearing, a burden worth bearing.
Jesus never said, “Think about me.” Rather it was always, “Follow me!”
