    Yes, it's interesting how cravenly Evangelicals like seer have accepted political corruption in the US today in order to advance the allegedly Christian agenda of ostracizing LGBTQ people, ending women’s reproductive rights and reviving white Christian nationalism.

    Why are you lying about me? And I bet I personally do, and have done, more to help the poor and needy than you.

    And praise the Lord you are not like the rest of men, those unrighteous.

    Tassman (or whomever, I didn't think to look to see exactly whom made the post) phrased it as a collective responsibility as opposed to a responsibility of the individual churches.

  6. Amen Tassman amen'd this post.

    You are an ass. That was not my point at all.

    No idiot, Tass was suggesting that if we didn't support your collectivism that we did not care for the poor. That was a lie...

    Yes it is a "collective responsibility" to help those in need. My point was in light of seer's objections to "using one's tax dollars paying for another person's food, housing, health care" (#60) whilst apparently having no objection to the very same "tax dollars" helping the super-rich pay a lower tax rate than bottom 50%.

    I know. Seer accepts a commonly held view, the corporal works of mercy are only an individual responsibility (either the individual person, individual church, or individual group), and the responsibility becomes diluted when viewed from a societal perspective.

    I am quite pleased when an atheist from Sydney accepts a main idea from scripture, surprised when it is opposed by a Christian from America.

    Maybe there is a glimmer of hope for you and your atheist's soul!

    Government welfare is main idea in Scripture? References.

    Yes, I do believe that was not your point at all. However, it is quite common to counter such criticisms with a response noting actions the Christian is personally involved in.

    Tass was indirectly bringing in the question of how much care for the poor is needed. There might be a thousand points of light, but how many points of light are needed? Volunteerism is laudable. But the fact remains that nations are judged, as well as individuals.
