Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe!!

There are a lot of awesome ministries out there that do a lot of good in the world. If you are looking for an awesome place to contribute towards helping those less fortunate there are ample biblical based organizations that you can work through. However, there are a lot of ministries out there that look biblical but are not… We must be careful…

There are Christian ministries out there that are fantastic but there are also a lot of ministries out there that really talk a good game but are not biblically based. In order to determine whether a ministry or charity is truly based on what the bible teaches we must examine it closely. Now you might think that it is very difficult to look at a ministry effort through the biblical lens to determine how biblically based it is, but I assure it is not. As a matter of fact Scripture is very clear on it:

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. (Col 2:8 NIV)

When looking at a ministry effort ask yourself if it is based on human tradition and the basic principles of this world or is it based on Christ? Are they selling YOU on the benefit that YOU will get or are they promoting their work based on Christ, the good it will do in the world, and the spread of the Gospel?

The only seeds we want to plant are in the heart and in the ground…

Blessings,
