Texas church raises money for kidnap-torture victim

WFAA-TV in Dallas reports:

WEATHERFORD — A Parker County church is rising money to support a woman who investigators say was kidnapped and tortured.
Members of the South Main Church of Christ in Weatherford have set up a fund to collect donations for the 62-year-old woman who was held for days in what authorities called a “house of horrors.”
The victim did not belong to the 500-member church, but elders felt compelled to help her.
“We felt like if that was our family, we would want someone to do that for our family,” said Pam Whitley, the church’s financial secretary.

    A great example of “Good Samaritan” Christianity in action! These brethren may or may not know who their neighbor is by name, but they do know the answer to the question, “Who is my neighbor?”

    Where does it say in the scriptures that we are to help only those
    in the church? God bless the South Main Church of Christ.

    Thank God for this church! I hope this woman is doing ok. My heart goes out to her and I hope and pray that the Lord can give her comfort and that justice will be served.
