GodVine is specifically designed for God's people to both give out of their abundance as well as to have their own needs met.
Now, more than ever, we are feeling a severe financial crunch. With soaring gas and grocery prices, many people are finding it hard just to make ends meet - and some are no longer able to do even that. Who is going to help us? The government? The oil companies? Probably not. Man cannot solve the problems he has caused but God can!
In the New Testament, Christians held "all things in common" - in other words, there was one big pot that everyone drew out of to have their needs met. It worked great back then but it wasn't really feasible for today's world - until now.
Now, let's bring it up to a "realtime" scenario. Christian "A" is barely making it from payday to payday when, let's say, his cordless phone quits working. Hmmm, he needs a phone but he also needs the $40 it's gonna cost to replace it for gas to go to work this week. Meanwhile, Christian "B" may also have limited funds but he DOES have a cordless phone sitting in the closet that he doesn't use. This is where GodVine comes in. Christian "A" lists his need online where Christian "B" sees it and GIVES NOT SELLS his unused phone. Then, Christian "B" lists his own need online and so on and so on.
Let me say this from the beginning, GodVine is NOT a place to sell your items! That is called Ebay. I also strongly caution you not to use this as a means of freeloading or getting something for free to resell. This site is a God given idea and with it comes His blessings. If you use it unwisely, you may be bringing judgement on your own head. Anyone who is using this for personal profit will be publicly exposed and banned from the site. Sorry, but this is a place for the Body of Christ to help each other!
Okay, so now that's out of the way, do you have a need? Go to the message board. Please leave your email address and also a general physical location i.e., Huntsville, AL. It will be easier if someone close to you can deliver the item needed rather than working out shipping details. God bless you and happy listing
