The Good Samaritan helped a man who was beat up on the side of the road when no one else would. 
We have to realize that even the very elect would have been fooled by the cleverness of this system of the World except by the grace of God.
And we know there are those who strive to come out of the system of the World and wear their separation as a badge of righteousness but do not follow the service taught by Christ nor do they cast their own bread upon the waters of the World.
We, if we are faithful to the words of Christ, still must be concerned with those Weightier matters of law, judgment, mercy and faith spoken of by Jesus Christ.
The dead bury the dead quotes of Christ comes to mind.
We should jump at every opportunity to gather together and every opportunity to give and support the work.
Sure we will swing a few strikes but at least we are swinging and God will take account... the buried talent comes to mind.
Every congregation should be overflowing with charity outside of their own congregation. This will prepare them for congregations of congregations.
When Jesus was asked Luke 10:29 ".... And who is my neighbour?" He told the story of the Good Samaritan.
The only way to change our status is to change the state of our hearts... and our minds...
- "Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;" 1 Peter 4:1
We need to be the opposite of selfish and covetous...
- " Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: " Philippians 2:5
Every congregation should be sponsoring charitable activities with their time and energy and freewill offerings to manifest the spirit of Christ...
Where is our Daily ministration?
Where are the Altars of earth?
What makes us different than the Modern Christians?
- "With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free." Ephesians 6:7
Unless we practice the ways of Christ we will not receive the wisdom and grace of God nor will our eyes bee opened.
- "For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.... Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." Romans 8:19
We are Homeless in the World and unless we begin to attend 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 do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.
The Way of Christ was like neither the way of the world nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. 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.
The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits 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.
"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.

- Luke 10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain [man] went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded [him], and departed, leaving [him] half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
- Matthew 20:25-26 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
Mark 10:42-43 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
Luke 22:25-26 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
