    Money rarely comes to those who sit on their ass. Get a job like everyone else and quit waiting for handouts. I'm fairly certain you have a college degree, go use it and get a good paying job.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Big, if they gave it all to the poor then the poor would be rich and the rich would be poor. Now the newly rich would in turn have to give it all to the newly poor and so on and so on. Would the purpose of this dizzing exercise be like musical chairs with the winner being the one who died poor and the one stuck being rich condemned to hell? Do you believe that Jesus had a wierd sense of humor to have proposed this?

    hardcore,

    I never claimed religion makes much sense but then again I am just trying to hold people that worship accountable.

    Lets see, poor people are in the billions and rich people are very few. I doubt a rich man will make poor people rich since there are so many of them to give.

    Big you are trying to hold people accountable to something that you obviously dont understand. The bible does not say what you are suggesting and what about the families of the rich should they become poor once the earner of the money is gone?

    Yes, according to Jesus. And why not? Billions of other people are poor. Why are they any different?

    Once again Big you just dont understand. I dont know if you are incapable of understanding or if you just like to sound like an idiot.

    Ugly,

    I am sick and tired of people like you that try to sit on both chairs. Either accept Jesus as a communist and worship him or denounce him and enjoy capitalism.

    Jesus didn't mean for rich people to give to poor at their leisure. He said give it all or no heaven for you.

    Thats not what he said and I am sick and tired of people like you not knowing what your talking about. All you do is read a passage that you dont understand and attempt to call people on it. You dont have any idea about what you are talking about Big. Does it not seem odd to you that nobody is coming to your aid or your side of the discussion. Not even the people that do not believe in Christ and believe the Bible is crap are supporting you. You are completely wrong about this. I will agree that Jesus' view was communist but communism is not a world that is full of poverty it is a system of economic and material equality. It doesnt work because people want more than others and want to excel. Thank God it doesnt work because from my view communism just creates lazy people who are complacent and completely reliant on the government to support them. Which is not what Jesus wanted.

    Jesus says sell all your possessions and give to the poor. You say this leads to unfavorable consequences. It seems to me Jesus is no better than Karl Marx.

    Also, how can you disagree with Jesus?
