'Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.'

Charity holds a central role in the mission and identity of the church, serving as a tangible expression of its core values and beliefs. It reflects the profound teachings of compassion, love, and selflessness that are integral to the Christian faith. By engaging in charitable acts, the church not only meets the immediate needs of individuals and communities but also embodies the spirit of Christ’s love for humanity. Charity fosters a sense of unity and solidarity among members, creating opportunities for personal growth and collective service. Moreover, it strengthens the church’s witness in the world, demonstrating its commitment to justice and mercy, and fulfilling its divine calling to alleviate suffering and promote the well-being of all. Through charity, the church transforms its faith into action, bridging gaps between different communities and making a meaningful impact on society.

"Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days."
