    I heard at the service meeting last night from a letter by the GB how Jehovah is blessing the relief effort in the south. I got to wondering, what about the good being given to non-JW's who are getting help either thru relief agencies and or thru their church groups- I guess their help is being "blessed" by Satan- HUH???

    Many religious organizations in Christendom point with pride to their "good works" of caring for the sick, the needy, and the unfortunate. But they would do better to place more emphasis on offering spiritual help, even as Jesus did. Like the religious leaders of the first century, they have failed to carry out the more important commission. They may have filled the stomachs of some poor people with literal food, but they have left their minds and hearts hungering for words of truth. (See Amos 8:11.) They may have donated money to help the needy of the nations, but they have not declared "to the nations the good news about the unfathomable riches of the Christ" or about God’s Kingdom government. (Ephesians 3:8) Their missionaries may have helped undeveloped nations to become more proficient in the use of the plow, but they have not induced them "to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears."—Isaiah 2:4.

    Within worldly religious Christendom there is a flowery pretense of Christian love and good works. But this veneer is marred irreparably by hate, spite, idle gossip, slander, cheating, thievery and murder.

    I believe I'll stick with worldly Christendom cuz I've already seen the Watchtower brand of help thy neighbor and it sux.
