    Take Down The Bird Feeder!

    I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it lovingly with seed.

    Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.

    So I bought another bird feeder and filled it with more seed to feed the new birds.

    But then even more birds came and started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.

    Then came the bird CRAP. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table ... everywhere!

    Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them and provided housing out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeders and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill them when it got low on food.

    After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore.

    So I took down the bird feeders, and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their CRAP and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.

    Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ... quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.

    Now let's see .... Our government gives out "free" (tax payer-extorted) food, subsidized (tax payer-extorted) housing, "free" (tax payer-extorted) medical care, and "free" (tax payer-extorted) education, and it allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen.

    First, Americans got a taste of government-subsidized goods and services. Many (not all, of course) of these Americans are the birds described above; Marxist American parasites who worship socialist politicians and policies so that they can leech off of you - a hard-working American! These Amerasites keep themselves and their financial situations just "under the line" to continue to be fed from your government-extorted pockets; living off of YOUR sweat and blood.

    Why work hard, when Amerasites can sit on their butts at home and get a check/stamps/credit mailed to their door?

    But many Amerasites lust for more $$, but they can't get it legally if they are to visibly stay just "under the line," so they get it illegally, and crime escalates where they live - where YOU live (Section 8 Housing).

    Then, Amerasites have kids, born into this welfare state, who learn to keep their *legal* (traceable) financial situations just "under the line," and you have the growing welfare demographic.

    These Amerasites are fed, clothed, housed, and often Paid by YOU. You and/or your spouse are working long hours and/or multiple jobs to support yourselves, your family, AND them!

    Amerasites return home from their one job, if that, and down a beer while you are still working or going to your second job.

    Amerasites don't study in school, so they won't get a good job, because their goal is to keep their *legal* (traceable) financial situations just "under the line" like their parent, maybe parents. Why would they need/want to take a job as a sharecropper or doing hard labor work (because of their lack of education/degree)?

    So, to fill these jobs, the U.S.A. welcomes certain non-citizens.

    The illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for MORE free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English.


    Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; you have to 'press one' to hear your bank talk to you in English, and people waving flags other than 'Old Glory' are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

    Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the CRAP!

    Suzi Q ​



    Suzi Q is a lost woman. She is a single mother of 2, who is struggling to make ends meet. She has a broken down car that she has to depend on to get back and forth to her minimum wage job.

    She gets up in the morning, gets her oldest to the bus stop, 6 month old to the babysitter, and arrives just in time at work to here her boss chew her out for being 5 minutes late.

    She is over worked and underpaid, she is worried about the bills at home that are piling up, and the bill collectors that keep calling her.



    She struggles through her day, calling her babysitter at


    at 3:30 to make sure her oldest got home after school. At 4:30 her boss tells her to work over until 5:30.






    At 6:00 when she finally gets home, her babysitter tells her that if she is late 1 more time, she will have to find another babysitter.



    She finally gets dinner, helps with homework, bathes the kids, and gets them to sleep… at 9:30 pm. She goes to bed with a headache, knowing she has to get up at 5:30 the next morning.



    While all the time she lives across the street from:


    The First Self Righteous Church of Anytown, USA



    The FSR Church Prides itself in:



    Being the biggest church in town.
    With the largest attendance on Sunday mornings
    The best cooks around for fellowships
    The hardest hitting preaching in town.
    Being doctrinally pure, whatever that means to them
    Their mission programs to 120 foreign missionaries
    The best praise band in the county
    Having the softest pews, the most up to date sound system, and the most wonderful furnishings.
    Having Classes and small groups every night of the week.
    Having the most upstanding citizens of Anytown, USA as members.



    Something is WRONG somewhere!!



    When a church is too concerned about itself to help it’s neighbor it quits being a New Testament Church

    We are called to put the seed out...
    If it attracts birds, so be it...

    I oppose socialism/communism. But in doing so it is unnecessary, incorrect, and irresponsible to place those in need in this kind of light. There are all kinds of people who try to abuse government programs. Some of them are even wealthy.

    Condemn the ideology and even those that push it. But the single mother that can hardly make ends meet may need a washing machine. An elderly couple who cannot keep up the maintenance on their house may need some repairs. A local drunk may need a place to stay sober for a while so he can dry up that wet brain and be able to make some realistic decisions for a change. Not everyone who wants and needs help are trying to get over on the tax payers. And they certainly are not our enemies.

    TinyTim's post illustrates the role a church should play. But this society, including the Church, has deligated that responsibility to politicians, who relish it.

    Still, I have to believe someone in that church would see that young mother and get her some help..

    I believe the Holy Spirit guides believers that avail themselves, to take up these kinds of issues...

    I posted this fictional illustration a couple yrs ago...
    http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?p=886836#post886836


    It was an illustration to a sermon I was preaching...

    And to my surprise there were some here on BB that said that it wasn't the church's job to help her because she wasn't a part of the church...

    You are right... hillclimber, if the church would do it's job, the government would not be so big. I also believe the church would be more effective.

    Wow.

    It seems that everyone who replied didn't read the following:

    <B>

    The Church is supposed to provide medical, housing, food, and child care/orphanages for those who are in need, not the Government Church!

    The Government Church steals from others and creates dependants on the Government.

    The Church used to provide for all of these things, but now the State taxes church members, tithing decreases, and citizens turn to the Government Church that "provides" abortions instead of love and created dependants.

    I thought that this was obvious.

    I spelled "Amerika" with a "K" on purpose.

    It appears that few study history.

    We go to U.S. law and the Bible and read, "Thou Shalt Not Steal."

    And yet, most "law-abiding" Christians who would never say that it is OK to steal, believe that it is perfectly legitimate to ask the government to steal for them, which, by their actions, define them as socialist, if not communist, and as criminals.

    How does the government steal for these socialist "law-abiding" Americans? It's simple!

    The "law-abiding" American says, "I would like to have my children educated." The "law-abiding" American goes to the government and says, "look, I would like to have my children educated, I know it costs money, but I don't save money to pay for it. So, I want you to go to my neighbors and take money from them to teach my children."

    "I'm against stealing, you understand - I would never take a shotgun over to my neighbors and forcibly take from them all of their possessions or a percentage of the value of their land - I would never do that - but I will ask you, the government, to do it."

    "And, I would never steal from my neighbor to buy a house, but I will ask the government to do it, to come up with a matching grant for my downpayment."

    "From Each, According to His Ability, To Each, According to His Need" (the classic statement of the socialist).

    Does anyone care about the facts?

    HAS THE U.S. ADOPTED THE "TEN POINT PLANK"
    OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO?





    In order to comprehend, more fully, just how far down the Socialist road (under both Democrat and Republican presidents) we have traveled, consider the following from the Ten Point plank of the Communist (Socialist) Manifesto of 1848:
    1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rent of land to public purposes. (Confiscation and ownership of vast areas of land by both the Federal and state governments with the remaining private lands under intense restrictions and regulations.)

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (The Federal Income Tax was adopted in 1913. Many of the states have since adopted their own versions of the graduated income tax.)

    5. Centralization of credit ... by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. (The Federal Reserve Banking System is a national bank with a very powerful and “exclusive monopoly.”)

    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state. (i.e. government FCC regulations on radio and television and the ICC regulations on the railroads, trucking companies, and the airlines etc. Amtrak and Conrail are owned by the Federal Government. Some bus and transportation services are owned by state governments and regional metropolitan areas.)

    10. Free education for all children in public schools. (Government public schools, colleges and universities.)


    HAS THE UNITED STATES ADOPTED PORTIONS OF THE "NATIONAL SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY" PLATFORM?





    Now we come to the National Socialist (Nazi) parallels that exist in the United States. Many of the famous Twenty-five Points of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NAZI) have been echoed by both Republicans and Democrats alike. Here are a few:


    1. ....provide work and the means of livelihood for the citizens of the state....

    2. We demand an extensive development of provision for old age. (Social Security).

    3. The State must undertake a thorough reconstruction of our national system of education, with the aim of giving to every capable and industrious [citizen] the benefits of a higher education.... We demand educational facilities for specially gifted children of poor parents ... at the expense of the State. (Think of the Federal “Goals 2000" and “No child left behind.” etc.)

    4. The State must concern itself with raising the standard of health in the nation.... (National Health Care, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)

    5. The Party ... is convinced that our nation can only achieve permanent well-being from within on the principle of placing the common interest before self-interest. (Special interests and “group rights” replace “individual rights.”)




    Other points included such things as – are you ready – gun control [registration and confiscation], federal welfare, and yes, day-care. They even had their own National Endowment for the Arts.





    Now we will let Adolph Hitler have the last word:


    We are socialist, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions. (Speech of May 1, 1927. Quoted by J. Toland in Adolph Hitler, Garden City, N. Y. : Doubleday.)

    IF the church had done its 'duty' as an act of love from God to the needy:

    IF the members of the church had seen their tithes and gifts, going for more than the biggest buildings, the latest fads in interior decorating, the greatest comfort provided any audience to use a facility for only 5-15 hours a week:

    IF the pastors' income was in line with those of his flock:

    IF the church had promoted the concerns within the community as a mission of God' providence to it:

    Then perhaps citizen Christians and lawmakers which rose from their congregations would have had greater confidence that God gave those opportunities to us, not the government.

    Every program the government gets its hands on to perform 'for us' out of 'our need' cost more than the actual service. I dare say, if charities took donations and delivered out of each dollar, such few pennies for the services they serve... like the government does... they would go broke: People would stop giving.

    While bringing socialism into the textbooks of public education in the USA, our leaders led us to 'be afraid' of communism. Very little was taught regarding Nazi Germany. Many of the socialogy studies in the 60's and 70's colleges referenced as fact the now debunked Kinsey reports, and studies of pubescent teens sexuality in America Samoa. Many of our leaders in government... office holders and appointees... hold degrees from Yale and Harvard........ Harvard, I believe, where the liberal Carroll Quigly (sp?) inspired Bill Clinton into politics. Most are members of the CFR. Many of this elite group attend an occult meeting in the heart of California, where a (hopefully mock) human sacrifice is made to an Owl god called Molech and say a goodbye to 'care'. As crazy as all of this sounds (or it did to me when I first heard of it), it goes begin to explain the diabolical positions we seem to be seeing in our country.... and the fraternal type patronage, many candidates seem to give each other across party lines inspite of the voice of the people..... like a quiet conspiracy to move together in the same direction.....that of globalization.

    I think it was Jefferson that warned that a government that can offer people what they want can take what they have. Its amazing how people will go to the polls and vote for 'the offer' or the promises of politicians without considering they are asking government to take from them and their neighbors: Furthermore government social programs are less efficient than the same responsibility taken on by the community or private sector.

    Where does the Bible tell us to put out the kind of "seed described in the OP"?

    The truth is, it doesn't:
    We are to be stewards of our resources.
    The Bible clearly teaches that we will have the poor with us always. The needs we are to help with regard those survival needs of a neighbor who can't provide... not for those who wont or refuse to provide but are capable. The resources offered those in need are not put out like a smorgusboard for all to feed upon regardless of need, like the bird seed.

    But, those who have real needs, should be able to find santuary and comfort, hope and help, from the body of Christ.

    The early church appointed deacons to assess and assist in determining the needs of those who complained they were needy, and the stewardship governing the use of collective resources for those needs: However, it did not prevent the one on one nuturing and help of individuals to other's needs, of which they were aware.

    We are not expected to read people's minds, and not all needs are readily apparent upon a superficial observation. A person having unmet but very real needs, should be able to ask for help. For many people, this requires enough genuine interest and involvement to develop a relationship with others for such candid information to be exchanged. When we know of a need but are not in ourselves able to assist, we should know those contacts within our assembly which might have both the provisions and the power to help, and make quiet reference and contacts between them.

    We had a young woman with three children that were three and under come to services one Sunday. One infant in arm and a two year old grasping her dress and the three year old was grasped by her free hand. After the services it was found out that her boy friend was in prison and was not providing care for her children. She needed formula and food. We got the needed food but soon found out that all she had to keep the open formula and food cool was a beer cooler.
    God was gracious to me in that I had an extra old refrigerator/freezer and I gave it to her. Even delivered it and set it up. She was soon arrested for drug possession and her babies are now the wards of the State. As far as I know that fridge is still in that now uninhabited mobile home being used by no body. I would reclaim it but the land owner will not let me near the property.

    Would I do it again if another came in like manner with a need to my little Church? In a heart beat I would. However it is instances like this that makes others hesitant to help. I still can't get over how hungry those children were. :tear:

    and yet no where in scripture does it command us to redistribut wealth via the government which is the poorest of stewardship and responsibility.

    I've said many times that I would far prefer to have the Church or individual Christians help the poor. I just don't think the church is willing or able to do that. Do you? Just picking up some of the cost of medical care for 50 million Americans without medical insurance would be an awesome task. I have no idea what it would take to feed and house all the poor. If you think the church could take that over from the government how would that get accomplished? For one thing, a lot of people have expressed on this board an unwillingness to cooperate with other churches or other denominations.

    If you don't want the government to do this and you don't want the church to do it what's your proposal?

    Yes. I see it done every day.

    This figure is inflated and doesn't cover those who choose not to have coverage.

    And we shouldn't try to feed "all" of the poor. Fact is many who are poor need to be where they are and can get out of it if they want to. If you help some people to soon you only hurt them.

    So?


    Who is "you"? Anyway the insistance of the lack of involvement of the church appears to be mnore of an excuse than a reality.

    And the church reaches out every day.

    I don't think we're talking about the same thing. You say you see the church helping the poor every day. Of course that's true. But you're not talking about all the poor. I'd guess the church helps at most 5% of the poor in the way they need to be helped. (Not a $100 gift but picking up their support until they can help themselves.) Why is it important that Christ's Church work together on this? To me that's obvious. We could be a lot more efficient and effective that way. Not even all Baptists are willing to work together. Yoy is "you yourself." I asked for a workable alternative. You (that's YOU) haven't provided one.

    I have news for you. The government is not a viable solution. Just take a look at what has happened to socialized healthcare in Mass. This is poor stewardship. Money is not the total solution. Addressing the problems that lead to poverty is the real solution. Of which I never see nor hear libs discuss, or even make any attempt to address. Do you know how much money this country spends because of divorce in this country? Most social problems divorce, drugs alcohol etc cost tax payers untold amounts of money. You want a solution? Start there. Money doesn't even scratch the surface.

    I asked you once before. What is YOUR proposal? Or would you rather just turn your back on the poor ignoring the warnoings in the Bible?
