Sermons by “John Child”
Social action, who should be assisted and what is the qualifying criteria for support?
John Child unpacks 1 Timothy 5 and points out how the bible guides us in the way we should assist the community and encourages us to be wise in the stewardship of church finances and care focus on those who are destitute.
As we start our series in the topic of social action, John Child introduces the idea by looking at the history of the church and its involvement in earthly matters while some may feel itis a question of word (ministry) vs deed (ministry).
John points out that it is not an either-or, it should rather be a both-and, especially when it comes to evangelism.
