Charles Keith is a Godly man and his faith is amazing!! He lost everything, yet he is still praising God!! Good things will come to him, and we all need to pray for him. Let's have some good topix conversations instead of the trash that is usually on here!!

He should have shown some personal responsibility and not have been a victim of a fire because he didn't have his gun. Now my taxes are going to go up because of this deadbeat hoodlum that doesn't have complete control of everything.

What in the world are you talking about? He is no hoodlum, and he did not need a gun, he needed to get out of his house before he was burnt up? ARe you even on the right thread?

God's people will help Charles Keith not your tax dollars. That what Christians do for each other. He was living in his own home, dryer caught on fire. He tried to put it out and got burned. He is not a young man and is in poor health. I just don't know where the gun story came from? We just thank the Good Lord he was spared. Have a great day.

A lot of people get on here trying to hurt people and just end up looking stupid, such as party T. If you can't be nice be quiet. It could have been your house. I can think of nothing worse to happen to someone than to lose everything in a fire. I don't know him but he does deserve respect.

..........You know,I don't know you but,can see from your post that you could care less about this man.. It doesn't matter..Your taxes should go up...You are not the only one that lost..He could have burned to death..Thank God he got out...You sound like a landlord..You should have helped him....Maybe it was something wrong with the home that caused the fire...Something that you should have taken care of.....Don't be so brutal!!

Maybe he didn't pay his rent and the landlord had to burn him out.

I will be glad to ask Mr. Keith how you can reach him. I am sure he will appreciate any help you can give him. He is such a kind, caring gentleman. I will let you know what I find out.

Charles Keith owned his own home for your information. He does not or did not get any help from any organizations. He has paid his own bills and supported himself. If you don't know someone personally then don't speak about them. Also just how do you think your tax dollars are going up to help him when he receives no extra benefits.

Happy to report Mr.Keith has a new place to live. Furniture and everything he needs to setup housekeeping. Party T don't worry your tax dollars were not used. Provided by friends and loving church family. God is so Good! We are so happy for you Charles.
