Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 5 how to deal with the church, people. He said don’t recieve any accusations against an elder. Except that 2 or 3 witnesses come to you. Paul talked about the church taking care of widows indeed. He says they must be 60 years old, know for their piety, and have no family left. These widows are taken care of by the church. We are to treat elders are as fathers, older women as our mothers, young men as brothers and young women as sisters. This is where Paul talked about not laying hands on any man suddenly. He said be careful that you don’t partake in any man’s sin. Paul was telling Timothy to be careful, pray and let the Holy Spirit guide you through.
