"I’ve never seen a poor person who helped another poor person. In order to help someone you have to have the finances to bless someone else. You can’t give what you don’t have."

Uh yeah...Mother Teresa

You're confusing carnal with eternal blessings/promises.

“Uh yeah...Mother Teresa”

Uh no. . . she didn’t pay for it herself because she had nothing. I don’t want to take away anything from this amazing woman, but she collected money from people who tithed it or made an offering. Some sacrificed to give to her but most I am sure did not have to sacrifice to give an offering. She may have organized it but, as always, she had to collect resources from people who actually had them.

It’s hard for alot of people to accept but God prospers people so that they can help others. This is a scriptural principle. If we had more people prospering then there would be more available to help others.

Hmmmm ..?? Even Mother Teresa provided housing and food - where did she get the money to buy those things ..??

She lived a life of “poverty” - which only means that she DENIED HERSELF SOME OF LIFE’S PLEASURES .. but that didn’t stop her from taking donations in order to feed and house other people.

Was she just doing it for the money ..?? How come you’re not questioning her ..??

You see .. your comments have no validity!!

Read Deuteronomy - Chapter 28:1 - In the beginning of the Chapter, God lays out his plan to bless man - then, in verse 15, God lays out the curses. God then makes this wonderful statement in Chapter 30:15 - “I’ve set before you life and good, death and evil.”

The choice is YOURS.
