Get your head out of your ass and look what I said, If there were no government social welfare it COULD increase the burden on Christians and society as a whole as far as that goes.
Where did you come up with this "Kicker" crap.
That was the point, WHAT IF there was no government intervention.
The Bible instructs that those that can take care of themselves are to do so, read Timothy, it address the welfare state, I know no Christians that begrudge taking care of those that cannot take care of themselves. A good liberal will send money to PETA before Save The Children. Heck, a good liberal would support Planned Parenthood before Saint Jude.

I agree with you on the meaning on that. Also in my view one who claims to be Christian should refrain from doing such.
Refrain from saying things like this,

"The people I am talking about will go to great lengths to give the appearance of helplessness"
When you have insight into their lives, it is no different than saying the sky is blue on a cloudless day. You just don't like the fact that I would say that and your trying to fit me into a false stereotype.

No, it wouldn't increase any burden. Those that need help would get help and those that are trying to work the system would get nothing. The kicker is that you believe government should be in every aspect of our lives yet the ancient Jewish law you cited left the decision to the individual farmer without government intrusion. A conservative point of view if I ever saw one.

Why did God think it was a good thing?
Because of iniquity perhaps, that they did not offer to strengthen the hand of the poor.
My point is this, caring for the poor is prevalent through out the Bible.
There was no caring for the poor in either Sodom or Gomorrah. They were vile places full of immorality. It was so bad that God decided that there wasn't one single person worth saving. The world became a better place when those two cities were destroyed. That is why God called it a good thing. Listen, I have tried to stay away from the Biblical conversations with you but you keep dragging it back. You don't have a clue of what your saying so why don't you just leave it alone and stick to something you know. Defending liberal ideology. And if I'm not going to talk about Christianity then I would appreciate it if you wouldn't take shots at Christianity simply because you know I agreed not to talk about it.

Also, if I remember correctly, I believe Proverbs 6 tells us to consider the work of the ant, and though the ant has no captain, overseer, or ruler provides for itself supplies in the summer, and gathers its own food in the fall. The warning that follows is for the lazy...with the consequence of poverty to follow.

Of course, the typical response from those that that only pick and chose the areas of scripture that seem to 'prove' their point, are the first ones to ignore, reject, or 'redefine' the areas that don't suit them.

It sounds like a hypocritical...but, of course, it seems like those that have perfected this technique are also the first ones to despise hypocrisy...
Life's funny, isn't it...

Absolutely. There are countless passages in Proverbs that speak to our responsibility to work. Good point.

You should stay away from Biblical conversations, God destroyed four cities on that day.

Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim ...

(Deuteronomy 29:23, Hosea 11:8).

It's a lot different, the statement about blue sky is an objective one, insight into their lives, most likely, is purely subjective.

Do you have access to these peoples medical or financial records?
If not, then you are judging.

But it is all good, because if Heaven was free of sinners it would be a lonely place, would it not?

You remind me of the lyrics of an old song;
Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.

"It was so bad that God decided that there wasn't one single person worth saving."

Nope, you are wrong.

Abraham then inquired of God for mercy at lower numbers (first 45, then 40, then 30, then 20, and finally at 10), with the LORD agreeing each time.[Gen 18:22-33][26] Two of the angels proceeded to Sodom and were met by Abraham's nephew Lot, who convinced the angels to lodge with him, and they ate with Lot.

Would you care to discuss what Lot and his two daughters did after he was spared?

Truth of the matter, One Tin Soldier is a 60s era anti-war song, and made it to the top of the charts in 1973 and 1974 at the end of the Viet Nam war after it was used in the sound track, of The Legend of Billy Jack.

Any thing else you would like to add to that?

Yes, the song made the Vietnamese the Mountain people, the US Government the Valley People. I can Google with the best, I also think on my own, which you can't. Poor, poor Barney.

"There was no caring for the poor in either Sodom or Gomorrah"

NO KIDDING, that was what the Bible verse said I posted.

Ezekiel 16:49-50,“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:

"there wasn't one single person worth saving"

That is not what the Bible says.

How do you explain Lot's wife being turned into salt if not one person was worth saving?

Seems to me you would have know that.

I do believe your statement was, you would not talk about it, unless some one brought it up first.

NO worries I brought it up.&#9787;

In that case you should have thought to "Google" before you posted.

BTW who spews more anti government rhetoric than Reality Check.

"I also think on my own",

you sure do a poor job of showing it.

Barney...Barney...Barney...why you wanna judge Lot so harshly by bringing up that ugly episode with he and his daughters?
What right do you have to judge the actions of Lot and his daughters?
What judgement are you passing on this trio with your leading question?

After all, in 2 Peter 2:8 God reveals that because Lot was a
righteous man, his soul was vexed by all of the evil around him.
Barney, you aren't guilty of passing your own judgment on Lot, are you?

Oh, Barney, your very words reveal what a simplistic thinker you are and how very little you actually know compared to what you think you know.
You should consider removing the plank from your judging eye as you try to reveal the speck in the eyes of others. It would certainly clear your vision.
You are the epitome of the very thing you claim to detest...but you are only wise in your own eyes. Better keep that mirror close by!
