    Well, now that some idiot bumped my thread by barfing on it, anyone want to continue discussing ethical dilemma thought experiments? Are there any with an obvious third option to a false dilemma?

    Thank you, CP, for cleaning up the fundy atheist vomit! It stunk!

    There are four types of giving in the Bible:

    1. Tithe Motivation is Obedience.

    2. First Fruits Motivation is Generosity.

    3. Alms Giving Motivation is Compassion.

    4. Seed Giving Motivation is Faith and Reward.

    Just because He was sleeping in that one instance doesn't mean He'd be asleep in the hypothetical lifeboat scenario. He sure wasn't sleeping when He was walking on the water towards His disciples. It was stormy then also.

    My point was to show that Jesus wasn't worried in that scenario... so He would not be worried in the hypothetical one [in the OP] either.
