I don't know...thought I wanted in on this conversation but maybe not.<quoted text>
But you thank your alleged god for all the good stuff, right?
christian hypocrisy isn't new to me hu, don't bother.
I used to love these verses...I think they say much to the Christian walk and how they should conduct themselves.
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them,“Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say,“You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
I believe however it goes much deeper...much wider.
Luci...I think we all could do more...with or without a higher being. If we all just reached out to those in need...regardless of why they are in need...the world would be a better place.
Another however though...
I think at some point...you have to stop reaching out to those that bite your hand off.
