Peter Mullen—Charity is the remedy to our economic woes

Posted by Kendall Harmon

It is hypocritical and unjust of us to scapegoat bankers and industrialists and fail to notice greed and covetousness in our selves.
A bit of self-examination is in order. St Paul’s cathedral, which receives massive handouts from wealthy people and institutions in the City is ill-placed to condemn its benefactors. And wouldn’t you like a bit more money? I know I would.
At all times, but especially at Christmas, we should see ourselves as the far from perfect creatures we are – the Bible’s word for this is ‘sinners’. The remedy is to be generous, kind and charitable. For, as the Good Book says, ‘Charity covers the multitude of sins.’

Read it all.
