And of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

And of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

Post by Thinktank »

the bible says:
Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

or

"Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.


Can someone explain to me why there isn't a Christian on earth who will say to a guy who just
took his car stereo - HERE BUDDY, TAKE ME EXPENSIVE DIGITAL CAMERA TOO!

So why do we have to listen to bible scriptures at church, that no one ever pays attention to in real life?
Does anyone know?
“In the entire history of mankind there has never been a political elite sincerely concerned about the wellbeing of regular people. What makes any of us think that it is different now?”

If I ask a Christian for $100.00, I won't get the money.

That's another scripture we hear often in church, but not one of the billion
Christians on earth actually does it in real life.

Why do you isolate single statements from the Bible without citing an excerpt in its context complete with chapter and verse notation? It's very churchy of you.

here's more:

20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.


There are one billion Christians on earth, and not one of them actually believes the poor are blessed,
and the rich are 'woe unto them.' From what I saw from attending church, we all want more money.

I have a very difficult time taking you seriously, your statements are out of left field 90% of the time. As in, it would take 10 seconds of thinking to come to other conclusions than you do. I think, you don't believe anything you write but are just seeking to stir the pot for attention.

If this is not true, then think of this. Its a big world and there are many many churches, you went to a few and formed a worldwide view of the rest of them, is that correct? I hope not.
