In recent years, a number of people have been attacking Christians. They claim that Christians are hypocrites and do not follow their own rules. While bad seeds do exist in all groups of people, these assumptions about Christians as a whole are just wrong. So many of them are working everyday to help poverty-stricken individuals.

If you have direct tv, then you’ve probably seen channels like EWTN or the Church Channel among the listings. While ministries making the leap to television are not an entirely unheard of thing, frauds and long cons related to “televangelists” are just as prevalent.
Are televised ministries something you can trust?
It all depends on who is running the ministry and what you are looking for in a religious program. Many ministers who are on television like Billy Graham and David Jeremiah are considered to be the genuine article and often provide substantial material despite the televised medium.
Unfortunately, there is always and ugly aspect of marketing that comes into the mix and you can’t help but be concerned when you see a genuinely moving sermon bookended by stale ads about buying the latest book or Bible study guide.
In the end, you really need to think for yourself. You need to re-evaluate your understanding of the scripture and what it means to be a Christian.
You need to watch these men and women on the television and you need to ask yourself if what they are doing is right. Are they using television to reach millions with the Word of God, or is this show mostly about them?
When you can figure this out, you know which televised ministries you can trust and which ones are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Many Christian ministries are available to help with the elderly. Ministering to their needs can be done in several ways by the community, local churches and other Christian groups.
Some facilities will offer regular programs to benefit the elderly residents of the facility. The programs may consist of a Christian speaker ministering to the residents through the Gospel, or the programs may consist of Christian music being performed to entertain the residents. The programs are effective and efficient ways to include the community by allowing them to become a part of the service with the residents. Volunteers can Read the rest of this entry »

Baptist Ministries fight human trafficking in the US and abroad as they join other Christian denominations in confronting human trafficking. Legislatures and various Christian/Baptist ministries have long supported numerous measures to increase penalties for those caught in this illicit trade. While up to now, the fight has been largely left to enacting legislatures, the battle has now taken another form not governmental in nature.
There remains another aspect to this human contraband problem: what to do with those innocent people who have been seduced or forced Read the rest of this entry »

There is nothing more important than spreading the knowledge of Jesus Christ’s love for humanity. That’s why the Baptist Ministry and missionary programs are more important than ever. In these trying times where hope seems in short order the American people need exposure to the teachings of Christ. Between the free fall of the economy, the corruption of the youth from pop-culture and drugs and the conflicts all around the world, the concept of Christians being the “salt of the earth” has never Read the rest of this entry »
