If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin. – Charles Darwin.
When people are hungry or malnourished, their basic needs to live an abundant life are not being met, and their growth is stunted. This effects everyone in some form or another either in their own spirit, body and soul or from their associations. As we build on this mission and movement, I have identified three major areas of hunger in the World to focus upon for innovative solutions. The three types of malnourished people are: 1) Natural disaster or the laws of nature; this area of hunger needs very little introduction. We all know about the natural disasters happening around the World almost daily from tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, flooding and the likes. These are areas the news media reports on daily and those coverages raise the awareness of – making it ideal for massive support. 2) Malnutrition, the second area of hunger is from poverty – often created through institutions and government regulations. This is a more crucial area because of it’s wide effects on people’s production and reproduction – the very reason why we are here on earth. People are malnourished when their food consumption is not up to sufficient standards for a healthy body. For children, these numbers are even more crucial. This area is harder to identify and often goes unnoticed but effects a massive number of people in the United States and around The World – especially third world and under developed countries. 3) Spiritual hunger is the third area, I refer to it as spiritual hunger because many people are living in bondage, and bondage is shown manifested in lack of both mental and physical faculties. This bondage is a lack of wisdom and or intimate relationship with the Lord God of the universe, giver of life and the creator of all things. When a person is spiritually depleted, the mind become weak and can causes both physical and mental illnesses. This is even more serious because it also effects those around the malnourish soul. Scriptures identify the instrument as death, in Romans 8:5-17, “…For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God,” Matthew 4:4. I have come to understand through my experiences that life is a challenge, and can be even more challenging if one does not learn to eliminate the day-to-day stresses of life. We need a Savior, and that savior is Jesus! This third area is reflective of our spiritual maturity or what I am calling spiritual quickening (SQ). This is not easily identified, but does effect everyone whether knowingly or unknowingly. We see this too often when there’s a mass shooting, violent crimes and deaths for unnatural causes – daily in the world around us and in our news reports: murders, rapists, petty and grand thief, greed, political contentions, etc. For purpose of building this ministry movement, I will first deal totally with the spiritual responsibility of the people.
