Fervent Charity

Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist and Jesus and the early Church advocated a Daily ministration for the needy of the Christian community that was dependent on Charity only and it was not like the system of Corban of the Pharisees nor the free bread of Rome. It was their Pure Religion that brought them into a Christian conflict with Public religion and the Covetous Practices of the World.

1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Christians took care of all the social welfare of their society by Freewill offerings. Those offerings were freely and completely given as if they were Burnt Offerings to the ministers or stones of a sacred altar of God. Those lively stones were caretakers of the estate of Christ by His appointment and had no personal estate of their own. What was given to them was given to a sacred purpose trust separate from the world.

Their Daily ministration was tended to by a network of Church ministers. They did this by their fervent charity alone, free will giving in The Living Network of Christ;s ministers.[1]

There was lots of Government welfare offered by the Pharisees and Herod and of course Rome had an extensive welfare system managed through their own Temples but you had to sign up under an oath where the contributions were to be compelled by civil law.

While Peter is saying above all things have fervent charity James said above all things swear not[2]

This is where the Christian conflict brought persecution. Christians would not apply to men who called themselves Benefactors but exercised authority, even if it meant death. Modern Christians do that in every country even though it is coveting their neighbor's goods and contrary to the instructions of Christ.

Real Christians strive to keep the commandments of Christ because they actually love the real Christ[3] and His doctrines.

So what can we do to preach Christ in word and deed?[4]

Every congregation who becomes a part of The Living Network is also a part of the Faith Emergency Ministry Auxiliary of the Church, the FEMA of Christ.

To develop your FEMA skills you must practice and develop the Body of Christ by attending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors and the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to provide for the needy of society through the Covetous Practices and the men who call themselves benefactorsbut who exercise authority one over the other like the socialists do.

The Way of Christ was like neither the way of the world of Rome nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on those fathers of the earth through force, fear and fealty who deliver the people back in bondage again like they were in Egypt. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ and have become workers of iniquity.

The Christian conflict with Rome in the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for their free bread but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens as He commanded.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.

The multitude of sins

Someone on the Network asked:

"Does this include charity expressed in tithings and other contributions...? That is, if the one receiving them is doing the work of Christ of course. Can these expressions of love cover a persons sins...? Is that what this verse means...?"

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:3 "And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing."

By this we know that simply giving what we have does not mean that we have "charity" in the sense Paul is using the word. That is because the word we see translated charity is not just about giving.

The word charity is the word translated love more than 86 times and charity only 27 times. It is translated charity mostly when Paul uses it and love when Christ used it.

Paul often mentions love and faith together[6]

So it is love not merely giving that covers a multitude of sins. Love may include giving and tithing but also includes forgiveness and keeping the commandments.

We see Jesus say in John 15:10 "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love."

And in:

1 John 2:5 "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him."
1 John 5:3 "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous."
Jude 1:21 "Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life."

Coveting and selfishness is one of those sins but so is unforgiveness and sloth. Tithing is evidence of love but it is not proof but fortunately God sees the heart. We only have to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
