SEVEN Reasons why you should donate to, and support the Empirical Church.
1) FACT : In California, there are OVER 33,000 churches and religious organizations, and approximately 370,000 homeless people. That's just 11 per church. Meaning, they could solve homelessness at any time. Yet, for some reason, they choose not to.
2) FACT : In California, Charities combined, raise 50 billion dollars, each year and yet, each year, the number of homeless persons only grows.
3) Our methods, are simple : Buying cheap land, building very low cost modular housing from 20 and 40 foot cargo containers, employing the homeless as volunteers to assist in the helping of other homeless persons in need, and working to produce wealth to provide a meager income to both fund the church, and fund the development of members who desire such advancement, and who do the work.
4) The difference is in the lack of overhead which normally exists in all charitible organizations such as management, and social workers, all of which can be replaced by either volunteer or minimum wage workers derived from the bulk membership of homeless persons in need, who choose to join and are capable of doing the jobs.
5) The real benefit for California, is not only would the church function to house and care for those who are most in need, but will by design serve to catch all others who fall due to drugs, illness, family problems etc, women, children, boys and men, who presently have no family and can find no long term shelter or assistance with long term re-habilitation.
Our effort is to provide rehabilitation through various work programs, which would include education and training into various skills, for the purpose of building up character and work ethics by habitualy doing things. Doing which generates self worth, from the memories of having produced and provided gain, with the appreciation and respect of others. The devclopment of this work ethic, is priority, otherwise, we would do nothing.
With a work ethic, we need a buisness ethic, as a second priority, it means, we do not compete in buisness with our supporter buisnesses, and we choose not to over take any more than 25% of any given market sector, within any given nation, state, county, or city.
6) Fact : Your company or personal quarterly donations will be completely tax deductable, and can be a 'write off', with the reciept we will provide, and the assurance of our commitment to religious, scientific, charitable, educational and social service efforts.
The fact is, you are going to have to pay the money as taxes, but if you wish, a % of that money could be paid instead to our effort towards our very specific and very clear goals, in which you can be a very real part of, by both donation, and any and all assiatnce you can offer in goods, services, and overall knowledge and wisdom.
7) Rehabilitation, and Graduation, of the many recruited members, back into normal society, as typical working class citizens, is the ideal goal of the Church and brotherhood, in its attempt to take in and care for anyone, and it is not our desire that they should stay for life as volunteer workers, unless that is something they really want, which some will do. As many in all honesty, have little hope in the competitive free world job market economy.
Some will actually want to stay and live their entire lives in the body of the church and that will be perfectly fine and acceptable. While others, will instead prefer short term assistance to return to society, which is also perfectly acceptable, and is our purpose and mission as Gods children to fascilitate that assistance which humanity as one massive family should be showing to everyone, each other, on a daily basis.
The church, is literally a manifestation of God's love, acting through his children, who take it apon themselves to get the job done of ending homelessness and abject poverty, because it is the right thing to do, and due to our faith, we know we have the potential and ability to do so, if we just organized, and worked together to make it happen.
The church does not exist to implement worship or prayer in any given fashion, its purpose is to facilitate the ability to obey the over all general commands of the Lord God as found in many religions. To care, share, and love each other like family, like brothers and sisters, and to help each other to thrive and prosper. It's that simple.
Ours plans are sencere, and our intentions are completely honorable, however our ability to take steps is limited by resources and personel, all of which YOU reading this could assist with, by making donations, and or volunteering your time, and expertice in various fields, which could include perhaps, training our member persons in your usuable skills.
At this time, January 2009, a new solicitation campaign begins, and if you have received a call from myself, I hope, and pray, you will take this to heart, and understand that while, it is true, little if any success has been had thus far, with your help, the basic foundations can be built, borrowed, rented, purchased, or otherwise donated and together we can do great good.
We are in need of land, within the city of Los Angeles, where in we can start a new form of tent city, which is self organizing, and which will be lead by myself. AND TO assure this, I, myself, will live, in this tent city, that I may personnaly insure its success. Failure is not an option.
However, also, any and all offers of assistance will be appreciated.
