About six months ago, Homeless America set out to poll subscribers and readers their opinion about concern for the poor. We asked the question: “Jesus commanded that His followers clothe, feed and care for the poor. Who does that apply to today?” Here is how they responded …
82% believe that every Christian everywhere is responsible for Jesus’ command that His followers should clothe, feed and care for the poor.
7% responded that specialists like missionaries are now responsible to carry out His command.
7% thought that Church poverty committees are best suited for the task.
3% are not sure.
