Why Can't We Sell Charity Like We Sell Perfume? - We have the Church to propose that, for our salvation

Why Can't We Sell Charity Like We Sell Perfume? - WSJ.com

Charity, cannot be "sold" because it has to come from the individual. Taxes already try to "sell" us the idea that charity can be imposed upon the people only to drastically fail because charity soon becomes a selection process in the minds of the corruption of the state at the hands of politicians and politics.
Jesus resumed the Ten Commandments onto two; to love God with all intensity and all our hearts first and above anything and everything and then to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
We are individuals with an identity, created by God to His image and likeness therefore we have dignity, the dignity of the human person and we do have the capacity and duty to love. Truth, love, humility and forgiveness with faith, hope and charity, that is the only way to live.
