fThe Social Security Administration was established in 1935 under the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Program to provide benefits to those in retirement, with a disability, or survivors of covered participants in the program.  We want to see, however, how this governmental system has taken the place of the church body.  Read through and consider the following scripture verses:

I Timothy 5:3-6, 8
Leviticus 19:3
Exodus 22:22-24
Psalm 68:5
Zechariah 7:10
Acts 20:35
Proverbs 19:17
Matthew 25:35-40
Galatians 6:2
Matthew 5:42
Proverbs 14:31

 Review the scriptures above and think about the overall theme which they intersect and respond to the following questions in the discussion forum:

What overall theme did you come to?
How do these scripture verses influence your thinking on the church body and its effectiveness to accomplish what these verses outline?
How has your overall understanding of social security changed after looking at the responsibility of the church?
Has the church body fulfilled its obligations?
