Because Christ was going to provide, not so the guy could be left alone fending for himself.
Isn't God providing through the Church?

works your behavior what you do and why you do it is part of grace... anyone can argue one word... you don't even believe in Genesis. come on Dana read and pray about what you are talking about. ponder what you are saying and you can know the truth.
You can't give even one verse in the Bible that says works will save you. Not one. I'm giving you a very clear verse that tells you how you receive salvation and why.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

You can either trust God or not. If you are trying to justify your salvation by your works, you are not trusting God.

they paid all my bills and feed my family for 3 months in a row... that's what I said...

they gave me a job... that was walking distance from where i lived.

they helped me in every way I asked them too... plus in ways I didn't ask but needed.

the relief society provided furniture silverware, everything when i got an apartment.

I was always provided for.

so you are saying they should have paid everything for me?
I should have taken advantage of them?
That is not how I am. I want to follow Christ and live for him not take advantage and mislead people.
If you were working at Deseret Industries, they provided only a job, and not a very good one if you had to work two to make ends meet. They were taking advantage on you, because they make a profit at Deseret Industries. Everything they sell is given to them for free. So there is no expense there.

maybe you just don't understand the meaning of being blessed.

I didn't have to work at 7-11 with the possibility of being robbed and shot. I was provided for.

Donut's a Goebbels level creepy, sociopath who thinks because he lies loudly
it's like speaking truth.

21 “Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them,‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

"James 2:14-17
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?

If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them,“Go in peace, be warmed and filled,”
without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?

So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

In a 1 minute search I came up with 4

Matthew 5:16
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 16:27
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

John 6:29
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

John 9:4
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
-he is talking about the dark ages...(the night cometh)

And the 3rd is saying the works that save is believing in Christ, not good works. The other 3 do not say works will save you.
