Faith Based Organizations

I have a few thoughts on "faith based organizations. There are so very many Christian organizations that do what need to be done and they do it very well.

Do we, as Christians, have a duty to speak out if we see one that is NOT doing a good job?

A "for instance". We have our Salvation Army Stores and Goodwill - you may or may not call "Salvation Army" Christian and Goodwill (I think) is not marketed as Christian. Besides, they sell their goods, and that's not really what I'm going to be pointing at.

There are a few organizations that give donated goods to people who qualifiy financially. I was in one of those buildings today.

I realize that people who give away stuff, not sell it, are going to keep costs to a minimum. I'm not worried about the age of the building or that the floors are unfinished and crooked.

I'm talking about the fact that the bathrooms were not clean. There was not toilet paper and no paper towel. The place was musty and dusty.

I'm wondering if there would be a difference in how the place was prepared for "customers" if the customers had money - were a "different" class of people.

Can we not treat the "least of these" as though we were treating Christ the same way?

Can we at least make sure there is toilet paper in the restrooms?
