Speaker: Barry Slauenwhite
Scripture: Matthew 6:28-34
Description: We spend too much money on giving things (idols) to the poor rather than giving the gift of God (gospel). The world God created in the beginning of the Bible was perfect but the curse is the consequence of Adam and Eve’s sin. Everyone born after that is born in poverty (not necessarily physically but inner spiritually). The strategy of poverty should not be supplies OR gospel but supplies AND gospel. Jesus is the best example of this as he brought the gospel but also educated, brought healthcare, and fed because he loved the people. The product of this ministry is discipleship.
