Biblical benevolence bears moral accountability seeking to restore broken lives and reconcile lost souls, not create government dependents. Opportunists have always invoked helping the poor to enrich themselves. This awful trait resembles Judas Iscariot (John:12:4-6) more than Jesus Christ. The welfare state yields to Caesar that which is God’s and the results are predictably dire.
