Sure, some hospitals are providing a bit of emergency services, but if someone needs $100k in cancer treatment, I very much doubt the Christian charities are ponying up for that.


Check Shriners, for example.

Or Seventh Day Adventist hospitals. There are a lot of them and they provide a lot of free services.

I think Catholic Charities does as well.

For all the good work those groups do... it isn't close to enough.

Well, no.

We have a pretty good idea what Jesus would do because he already told us. He would tell us again "Feed my sheep"

He would tell us to tithe 10% of our income to help the poor.

What he would not do is tell us to gather an armed mob (A/K/A majority), call it "democratically elected government" and take money under threat of violence.

I am constantly amazed at how people like to feel all virtuous from spending other people's money but seldom their own.

Kind of the progressive mantra, though. Isn't it?

As any charity will tell you, there's no way private foundations can fill these needs. Even Bill and Melinda Gates have said their wealth is just a drop in the bucket with regard to the problems they've chosen to address.

Now, JFH, do I have to get out my pencil and come up with the numbers to show you're crazy the way I did with Walmart, or will you come up with them by yourself?

Jesus would say the money was never theirs nor the other people's; it always belonged to Caesar.

Right, because Caesar got up at 4 in the morning and milked those cows. Jesus wasn't a government lickspittle.

Don't post if you can't keep up, Rich. All the answers are right here in this thread for you. if you're having trouble understanding them, contact a preacher or Reza Aslan for an explanation.
