A Shield of Faith

16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints

Moose Norseman has an idea for a website focused on meeting material needs in the cause of Christian charity and fellowship. I think it’s a great idea. It has the potential to give organizational focus to local churches and individual Christians who either don’t know how to start, or don’t have the resources themselves.

It’s an ambitious idea, but being small it can be nimble and adapt. Ultimately he can choose to split off missions, redirect efforts, or whatever needs to be done.

Also: Moose himself is generous and bold while remaining humble. So check it out, and follow the progress.

Such ventures will win more Christians–and more ground for Christians–than 100 successful wars against 100 Bad Guy armies because the number of Bad Guy armies are Legion. Our mission is to build the Body of Christ through the Gospel of Christ resurrected, baptism, discipleship, and loving one another. That will very often mean defense of one another; perhaps even physically. Our offensive is the word of God; which is Christ.

  1. A simple way on a local congregational level would be to allow people of that congregation to post index cards of needs/items and just allow the members to take care of it themselves.Many people of every congregation have needs that are unmet because they don’t want to bother others. An index card stays there on the board until someone takes up that task and can even be anonymous if desired. The only danger would be if a congregation is peopled with persons who would never do anything for someone else. I am one of the most sceptical persons on Earth, but I do not believe there is even one congregation like that.
