    Ssev, you keep posting this same thing to thread after thread, I keep responding to it, and you never respond to my posts. Do you even read the things I post? If not, why should anyone read the things you post, especially since you just keep posting the same thing over and over again?

    “In 2016, the First Presidency ... issued statements ... calling for an end to world hunger. … ‘We invite people everywhere to open their hearts and minds to this growing need and make resources available to the effort of eliminating hunger where they live. ... As so many of God’s children across the globe are praying for relief, may we each seek ways in which we can help bring about the answers to those prayers.’ …”

    It is time to end world poverty, and there is a way to do it.
    Give every human being, free of charge, the basics for human survival: adequate food, shelter, housing, health care, and education. A righteous government would provide these basics to its citizens. A righteous religion would demand it.

    I agree. John 13:35 quotes Jesus as saying, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." Latter-day Saints certainly have love with their fellow humans, both in and out of the LDS Church; so it follows that they are Jesus' disciples; it follows that they are in Jesus' eyes Christian.

    I am glad to hear how my tithes and offerings are benefiting others that I could never reach individually. We in America live in abundance and as followers of Christ, it is our duty to help our fellow man. Even the poorest among Americans have so many more resources than these brothers and sisters. It makes my heart happy to see stories like this!

    That is quite a large chunk for a tiny little denomination that makes up only a small portion of the world's population....

    Time for other Christian faiths to take notice of these sorts of good deeds from the LDS Church. By their fruits (i.e., humanitarian efforts) you should know by now that Latter-day Saints are Christian.
