Luke 6: 30  Give to everyone who asks you...

"Rally for Humanity"

Will Pastors help in my need, to launch a 15-month capital campaign, to raise 2-million dollars, to be used to help one or two families, who struggle to overcome the grip of poverty from their lives? I challenge each Pastor, to look through the eyes of Christ and do as Christ himself would do, help me in my need...

Does Christ teach us, "To help our brother in need, in what so ever he lacks?" 

Does this mean we should help everyone that asks for our help? If we are busy and feel we have no more time to give to our brother, does Christ tell us it is o.k. to turn him away?
Should Pastors help those who ask for their help, regardless the size of the brother's need?
Did Christ not teach us to be like him, in all we do?
Did Christ pick and choose through the needs that were placed before him, or did he help all that asked?

In our campaign to help the poor, we are seeking the help of church leaders. Church leaders are to spread the gospel of Christ, but they are also in a position of ministering to the needs of others and teaching the compassion of Christ. Pastors are to live their lives, as Christ himself would live, as we are all to live.


It is said, in what we do, 'We should each make our decisions, through his eyes"...(What Would Christ Do)

If you are a Pastor that lends your help to my 15-month capital campaign efforts, to help a family that struggles to overcome the grip of poverty, it will be because you know that Christ has commanded us to help one another. If you are a Pastor and you choose not to help or ignore my request for help, then you may give Christ your reason for not helping.

"Keeping Track of Our Church Campaign"


Above, we will list our newest Pastors whom we ask to help in our efforts of helping the poor. From time to time, we will ask others and will continue, until our need is met.

Each and every month, we will launch vast mailings, notifying churches of our efforts and of those pastors who choose not to lend help in meeting the needs of the poor. We will send out our efforts to various evangelical associations, many of whom you will see their logos within this page.
The news media is sometimes the only voice the poor has, so our efforts will be directed to various media outlets in major U.S. Cities, each month.
We will continue to ask the Baptist Southern Convention in Nashville, for its help in meeting our needs, to help families who struggle to overcome the grip of poverty.

We are asking Pastors, because they hold the resources, when working together, to eliminate poverty from a family's life.
When we are able, we will even involve those we call the poor.
In this campaign, we are going to find out whether our society and its pastors truly care about meeting the needs of others, or whether our society is too busy to help a brother who asks for help.

Will These Church Leaders Help Fund Compassion?
These are the Pastors we have asked so far...  As of today's date, none of the below Pastors have lent their help...


The Voice of Church Leaders

I would like to share with you, something that happened to me while living in Nashville, Tennessee several years ago. I was living on Music Row, working on my music ventures and also a humanitarian venture.  I approached a very well known, downtown Nashville Church, asking the church leaders to help me in this humanitarian venture. I will never forget their reply to me. The leaders of that church told me, "They could not help everyone that knocked upon their door."
Is this what our society has come to?  I grant you, if Christ stood before us and we asked for his help, he would lend his hand to each of us, in what so ever our need, great or small. What if I told you, that my humanitarian venture was for the church to help 25 homeless in Nashville? Should the Church Leaders have helped, or is it o.k. to not help in such a request?
In our campaign, we will be asking many church leaders to stand and help in our efforts, it will be interesting to see, how many pastors will stand to help in an endeavor to help the poor and how many will ignore my request for help. Throughout my website, you will be able to view those pastors, whom I have asked to help.


"Biblical Quotes"


Deut. 15:7.
If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.


Mt. 5:42
. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.


God is the only judge.
1 Corinthians 4:5 says, "It is the Lord who judges me." We do not have the option of refusing our brother help based on our own judgment of his or her character.


How many times have you ever passed by a person, who asks for your help, just to say, ‘I do not have time”?  I guess we all have done this.  Is it right to shrug off your brother, when he asks for help?

So, what does God say about this?  

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully.” (2 Corinthians 9:6)

At the end of our lives, when we each stand before God, he will know whether you as an individual have given sparingly or whether you are one who has given bountifully. There will be Christians who stand before God, who will have given of their time and of their finances in a bountiful way and there will be Christians who stand before God, who have spared more for themselves, than they gave to others.

So, how will God look at each of us, as we stand before him?

“So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 5:19

“But many who seem to be important now will be the least important then, and those who are considered least here will be the greatest then.” Matthew 19:30

“And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will have eternal life.” Matthew 19:29


In these scriptures, we can see that our works on earth will be rewarded. Those Christians, who do more for his glory, will be called great, while those who do the least will be called the least.

So, the next time, you do not think you have time for one of your brothers, or you have no money to give to your brother, think about his words above. We all have time, we all have money, we all can give sacrificially, if that is our choice. Our actions within the world, will determine who we are in heaven.



Matthew 25: 35-40 "‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 ‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 ‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 “The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ "



'Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment'. John 7:24
Luke 7:43-45 (New International Version)

40And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.  41There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

 42And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

 43Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.


44Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet.

My Personal Letter to Reverend Billy Graham  9-22-21010



 
ATT: Reverend Billy Graham,
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
1 Billy Graham Parkway
Charlotte, NC 28201


Mr. Reverend Billy Graham,

I am sending you this letter, because you are perhaps one of the most respected of God’s children. I feel God has placed a great vision before me, an initiative to help those of his children, who have very little. In biblical times and present, they are called, the poor. I have something that is upon my heart and I would like to ask, if you can help me find the answer. I am asking many people across the world, to help me in my vision. I think sometimes, many people, even those who posses great wealth, cannot see a great vision. In my pursuit to find those people, who will help me, a great mentor and friend, Mr. Millard Fuller told me that I should ask the church leaders for their help.  I have asked two such churches in my life and those leaders of the church have told me, “They have no more time to devote towards a project that would perhaps help one of God’s children”.  One church even told me, “They could not help everyone that knocked upon their door”.  I guess I could ask another church, but I got to thinking, I should not have to.

“Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, `Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much.’ Then Jesus said to him, `Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.’” – Luke 19: 8-10 (NRSV)

Does God not wish us to give in our wealth and our time, sacrificially? Mr. Graham, just the other day, I had to ask God to forgive me, because I am as guilty, of not giving, when I knew I could. It is not that we give a lot, but that we give something, whether it is of our finances or of our time. When you pass the stranger on the street and he asks you to give a little and you say you have none to give, knowing you do, is this, what God wishes from us? If we pass the Salvation Army kettle at Christmas, and we say I cannot give, because it takes all I have for me to get buy, is this, what God wants us to do? If someone is in need of your time, but you say, we are too busy, is that, what God wants us to do? Perhaps each of us do not have $20.00 to place in the Salvation Army kettle, but if we have change in our pockets, can we not spare a nickel? In any of these circumstances, I would ask the great question, “What would Christ do”?

Mr. Graham, do you think I should have to ask a third church for its help? Should I have to ask a third time?

I am asking people throughout the world, many of whose names I am placing on my personal website, to help me in my great vision in Atlanta.

If it happens, it will be in God’s time, not mine. I am a content and patient person.

Mr. Graham, I am going to post this letter on my website, so that the entire world knows, I have asked one of God’s great children for his help, I will also send it to you in the mail. You know the great people that I ask and if it fell upon your heart, I know you would help. I hope this letter is directed your way.

Perhaps there will be many people that believe I should not ask such a question, towards church leaders.  But I think that you and I know what God has commanded from us on a personal level and what he has also commanded of his church leaders.  God knows what is in my heart and therefore, I have no problem speaking about what church leaders do not wish to do. If Christ stood before each of us today, and we needed his help and asked him for his help, we all know, he would give us his time and whatsoever our need.  May God bless you for your time.  The start of my vision can be found under my humanities tab, in my personal website: www.Quinaults.com

Mr. Graham, can you help me, place a great vision, in the hands of a great humanitarian?

 

Sincerely,

Shon Ashby
