Dr. Albert Mohler Defends Charity from Socialists

Citing reports that FEMA "plans to use taxpayer money to reimburse churches and other religious groups for aid suppied in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita,' Dr. Mohler provides this warning:
This is a horrible precedent that distorts Christian charity and wrongfully entangles churches and the government. With the tax-funded reimbursement will inevitably come government intrusion and all the rest. Christians should give the aid out of love and concern, without expectation of reimbursement.
A taxpayer-funded reimbursement has no constitutional authority, violating the First and the Tenth amendments of the Supreme Law of the Land. At this point, further federal redistribution also violates the pocketbooks of present and future Americans in terms of gross deficit spending.
Churches should steer clear of becoming complicit in federal abuses such as these which are essential attacks on religious freedom and the reserved powers of the states and the people. We need to continue to encourage charitable giving to help those in need and prevent government abuses in the process.

I am giving to hurricane relief through my local church and its mission network, and I encourage others to do the same for the glory of God.
