If you’ve been anywhere in earshot of the news this week you’ve already heard of the thousands who have died, the tens of thousands injured, and the hundreds of thousands who have lost their homes and livelihoods. The massive devastation of Typhoon Haiyan is heartbreaking.
If there is anything I’ve learned writing for Bible or Not over the years, it’s that our readers are people who care about helping others. And regardless of your religious persuasion, when you help the orphans and widows, that’s what the Bible calls pure religion.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” – James 1:27 KJV
