Booker T. Washington: Homeless College Student & Matthew 8:20 | Political Jesus

Perhaps one of the more frustrating things about modern “evangelism” efforts is the notion that churches try to reach only stable families, with a male bread winner ideally, to bring in the dough as well as add to children and youth ministries. The homeless, the not-well-to-do are seen has having no agency in this life, and so therefore, the church treats them as charity cases. I know that the word “charity” has become anathema to many folks such as myself dedicated to “justice” but I have yet to see sufficient evidence that this critique is invalid.
