Ya know, the LDS has their our charity system but if you are otherwise healthy they will expect you to mow the grass or work at the daycare center. The GOVERNMENT does not give a damn if you spend five dollars a day on cigarets (that could have gone to food), sit around the house all day (while the government pays for someone to mow your grass), etc.<quoted text>
How much charitable work do you need to do for god to be ok with evoking the name of Jesus to keep the poor down?
I am not familiar with such scripture.
I do not mind helping people UP but I hate feeding their addictions or laziness and I don't think God would would that against me.
