Regarding Inviting Homeless People into Our Churches

Dear Sergeant Sam-

I have listened to your show for years. Sometimes I agree with you, sometimes I don’t…but never have I been so concerned about something you have said.

Please prayerfully consider the following scripture reference:

“Then the King will say to those on the right, `Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ Then these righteous ones will reply, `Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’ And the King will tell them, `I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!'” (Matthew 25:34-40).

So, you see, by denying people who are homeless the loving shelter of a Church, a warm meal or even a drink, you are denying Christ himself. Christians are called by God through his scriptures to do the very thing you denounce.

I hope, as a man who calls himself a Christian, you will reconsider your viewpoint on inviting homeless people into our churches. In my opinion, it’s not about a feeling or fear…it’s about being directed by God to care for “the least.”

Sincerely,

Rachel Clampffer
