Why Is There A Housing Crisis And Is God Trying To Tell Us Something
I don't presume to speak for God. I don't presume to know God's mind. I'm just speaking on my own and trying to understand why we have a housing crisis that just keeps getting worse and not better.
I'm not trying to point fingers at anyone but one wonders why the government is more considerate about the plight, welfare and well-being of the homeless when compared to the church.
Why are all these mega churches and mega pastors we see physically, online and on television not providing any housing, shelter or help to the increasing population of homeless people?
Why do some churches have, "no loitering" signs all over their premises with high fences and menacing gates. Isn't church supposed to be a place where everyone is welcome regardless of their status and station in life?
Why are cities, counties and states being pressured to provide funding to cater for the needs of the homeless and churches are left unconcerned? What happens to all the tithes collected?
Where does all the money go if it's not being used to cater to the needs of the poor? What about all the wealthy and rich patrons that folk churches to worship? Can't they spare something to help with the situation.
I don't know why the homeless crisis keeps getting worse while the rich keep getting richer and getting more houses. I don't even know what God has to say about the matter.
But I have questions that I needed to ask in hopes that answers will come and this crisis will be sorted out and we shall stop seeing so much human suffering and pain on our streets and in our neighborhoods.
