Query by El Duderino: Do we as Americans have a “social responsibility” to our fellow Americans?
I am not debating welfare here – that’s not the point of this query. I am talking about what we as a society do to support our fellow citizens – fewer unemployed and homeless makes for a much better economic climate and society.
Do you feel we have a responsibility, implied or other sensible to our fellow citizens or is it every man for himself, and as well poor for those that fall?

Christians are suppose to desire to feed the hungry, and shelter the homeless. Any person with empathy feels a sense of responsibility to all human beings.
There is a biblical passage about storing for oneself treasure in heaven where the robber cannot steal it away. The treasure God is referring to is forgiveness, compassion, generosity, and really like.
There is 1 like it exactly where Jesus admonishes people by saying “When I was hungry, you did not feed me. When I was naked, you did not clothe me…” “Whatever you did not do for the least of these, you did not do for me”
