"...and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do." Galatians 2.9-10
"So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith." Galatians 6.10
At the EU Public Meeting today (which have been excellent over the past few weeks - make sure you download Rowan's Isaiah series) the following figures were mentioned:
- 13% of Christians live in absolute poverty. That equates to over 200 million people living on less than $90US a year.
- Christians receive 50% of the worlds annual income, but spend over 90% of it on themselves.
