It is almost time to vote.

Jesus walked the walk. The day that Lowell decides to walk the walk and "sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all" THEN I will give his interpretation some credence, But until Lowell believes it I will continue to use Lowell writings as the bed in my rabbit cage.

Christ, Greg - even your Lord and Savior had to make a living! Give the man a break.

Even the government doesn't tax us and give it to Lowell in the name of ecucation. Even Jesus wore the Rolex and Bacco Bucci of robes, a seamless one. The poor didn't get that robe, Roman soldiers gambled for it. Probably a card cheat won it. Speaking of cheats---O Lowell whereareyou?

Lowell, thank you for this well thought out presentation of the Good News as taught by Jesus. I appreciate your willingness to present historical Christianity. Thank you and God bless...

Jim, let me tell how it is in the real world. You see Lowell has that Lowell's little problem is he cannot distinguish between spiritual gifts of eternal blessings and tins of spam.

Lowell gives himself enough breaks (by refusing to follow Acts 2:44) he doesn't need anymore breaks.

This is a wonderful article..!!!
"Giving to the least of these" is NOT accomplished by hiding your millions in the Cayman Islands...!!! Or by outsourcing jobs to countries that do not have progressive taxes...
Jesus also said to "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's" so he would agree with our tax system which provides for those who are in need...
Too bad some do not see it that way..!!!

Aimee, I see it your way. We have a tax system that takes from me by threat of deadly force and gives to those who are less willing to work than I or is in a state of being where they cannot. If you, I and others would not buy those outsourced goods from countries that do not have progressive taxes, then that outsourcing problem would be solved, now would't it? If I had millions I might. But I have been saved from that sin.

It must be very convenient for you to be omniscient.. When did you develop this ability..??? For you to know that the people receiving benefits are "less willing to work" must be a source of pride... Have you ever thought of sharing with the authorities the actual names of those you think are abusing the system...???
Or do you, as I suspect, just listen to Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and repeat their spiel as if it were gospel..???

Jesus says, “Rich man, you should give more to the poor.” Lowell Grisham hears, “People, you should vote to steal money from your neighbors and give it to the poor.” Bottom line: It’s the fallacy of composition. A statement about personal morality cannot be legitimately construed as one about political policy. Grisham’s “kingdom of god” theocracy talk scares me every bit as much as similar talk from “right wing” preachers.
