STATUS-QUO-CHARITY MODEL: OLD WINESKIN

The status-quo-charity model is the old wineskin incapable of holding the Holy Spirit.
"No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins." — Jesus {Mark 2:22 (NASB) New American Standard Bible}.

The status-quo-charity model is better than nothing, but it doesn't lead to perfection (Godliness). It is buying from the capitalists to give to the poor but preventing the poor from getting out from under by failing to give them back the land.

The model (the old wineskin) must be discarded by people within the capitalist system. They must do that by giving to that which will get the land back into the hands of the people.

The people will then again be allowed to farm the land for the sake of the whole community. They will do it commonly with decision-making placed at the participatory level.

That level is where representatives are unnecessary. It is the level where every individual has a voice heard directly by all who will render the decision collectively, communally, communistically.

Again, this is for the good of the whole and not for the private, special privilege and advantage of the few. This new wineskin is just as the original Apostles lived. The conscience (the conscious and constant awareness of, and value of, righteousness) will prevail.

The Real Liberal Christian Church is not about simply buying from the capitalists to give to the poor which poor will, thereby, remain trapped under the system of capitalist greed, violence, and depravity. The Real Liberal Christian Church is about (and will remain about) obtaining the Christian Commons through the Church's Land and Building Fund raised from people such as you. This will constitute diverting the stream of wealth from the endless loop of selfishness into the endless loop (infinite) of unselfishness (the ultimate solution).

The Christian Commons is where real Christians live and raise food for themselves and the poor. It is truly living out the life style envisioned and lived by Jesus and the first Apostles, having all things common.

Please donate to this most worthy of causes (Jesus's cause).

Tithe or better if you are able, if the Holy Spirit gives you to do it, moves your heart to have the real faith to do it.

Let us together bring forth the Christian Commons. Donate liberally now to the Real Liberal Christian Church Land and Building Fund. All donations are Tax Deductible on US tax returns.

The Real Liberal Christian Church is a United States Internal Revenue Code §501(c)(3) Nonprofit, Public Charity, Religious Organization (ministry), as defined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, the principal purpose of which ministry is the advancement of religion, namely Christianity.
