Listen to Pastor Rogers or Jesus?

Editor, Index-Tribune:

Thanks to Roger Jack Young for providing those quotes from the pastor Adrian Rogers (<em>Index-Tribune</em> letters, “The words of Adrian Rogers,” Nov. 26), all of which declared, in essence, that the rich should feel no obligation to give any support to the poor: “You can’t multiply wealth by dividing it,” and so on.

But look at this from Jesus: “There will never cease to be poor in your land. Therefore I command you, you shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor … “(Deut 15:11).

So Roger Jack – who am I supposed to listen to? Any man of the cloth who would express the views that pastor Adrian Rogers did is a fraud. I’m sticking with Jesus.
