Archbishop Canterbury Wants State Run Food Banks
The report provides to aspects in the Daily Mail
1) Young people buying prepared food instead of cooking.
'Baroness Jenkin of Kennington suggested that a lack of cookery skills was in part to blame for families going to food banks, and boasted she ate a bowl of porridge for 4p for breakfast.'
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, last night called for the introduction of state-run food banks after being 'shocked' by the hungry in Britain
Will there be like war time rations too?
Is there a way to prevent this further spiral of poverty in this land.....perhaps it serves by keeping people down so they accept self appointed overlords. T
The problem is not being addressed. If anything it is forcing people to be controlled and conforming to the state rules and that is a concern...The problem is the deliberate disabling of society and as poverty rises so does crime.
The rise of the cost of living is impoverishing people.
In some houses, to live without heat to eat is a real choice to consider survival...I have not seen the film but is there one titled HUNGER GAMES?
People have lived in poverty for a very long time...
The struggle to survive is hard enough for most people because the system has failed them and the system has also contributed to their poverty and their world falling apart.
I have spoken to a few homeless people....
One man told me he lives in a caravan now and feels like a king in his own palace - he does not pay council tax and lives a simple life. He is not lonely. He remembers his pain - the scars he bears are physical. He was taken to go live in care only to be abused and neglected..
Another man pointed out people whose faces were buried in mobile phones texting absolutely oblivious to other people or their surroundings. Walking robots who eat, drink and sleep and do other robot activities in between. Blinkered thinking generation unable to see or sense danger and blind. Many ignore warnings of any danger to their own children.
The greatest poverty is lacking a soul to care!
So many elderly are abandoned emotionally and abandoned by family with the expectancy that the state will take care and provide. One women protested that she did not want to wipe her mother's dirty bottom after she soiled herself. I told her - she wiped yours lovingly!
Who takes care of the needy and vulnerable?
Perhaps life is throwing lessons to make people think about the people who have lack. Going through life grabbing what we can at any price is creating poverty.
The Church is supposed to be a house of prayer and shelter from worries. So for churches to help people in the community and people to give food to the church, this can be distributed. This has been done since the ancient times. With blessing the food and taking it to peoples homes, the people are blessed.
There are people who say they cannot afford to eat and yet smoke at £8 a packet of cigarettes. or drink and the government collects a fortune from these in taxes. The more people suffer the more they will be inclined to smoke, drink take drugs and even give up on life...
Who owns and profits from these cigarette companies?
People who think they are worthless will live accordingly. And a system in place does not instil worth in society - the damage being done to people is beyond repairable. God help them.
Peace be with you
