And You Call Yourself a Christian

So I was reading the news today about hurricane Harvey in Texas. (How can you not read about the hurricane). So in addition to all of the misery that people were experiencing, I came across an article about a Christian megachurch run by one Joel Osteen in the Houston area.  So Osteen rakes in millions of dollars, but all he can offer is prayers for the people of Houston. Here’s a piece on Huffington Post about Osteen not opening his church building to those in need.

Nothing bugs me more than someone who professes to be a Christian but refuses to reach out to his neighbors who are in need. I am sure Osteen is quite dry and comfortable in his $10.5 million mansion.

Here’s an article in the New York Post, with pictures that shows that his church is not flooded.

So what would Jesus do? I haven’t found an appropriate Bible verse, but a quotation that comes to mind is:

God comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable

It doesn’t seem like God is doing a very good job of doing that in Texas these days.
