    Poverty can be caused by a myriad of factors. Laziness was/is only one of them.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    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.

    You can twist and misunderstand scripture all you want. You can cherry-pick whatever you think fits your so-called theology. You can call me a liar if you wish. You are preaching a different Jesus and a different gospel.

    I call you a heretic and a false prophet. And God's word proves me right and you wrong.

    What is with this guy? I think he just fails at hermeneutics. And Exegesis.

    So, I take it you believe Herod literally offered half his kingdom in Mark 6?

    Actually there is another option, that you are misunderstanding Jesus. This is the kind of misunderstanding you get when you don't realize that the Bible was written in a different culture, around 2000 years ago, and not yesterday in English. Figures of speech, hyperbole, and other things like cultural specifics need to be taken into account. You haven't done this, so you're getting a warped view of scripture.

    Poverty isn't necessarily a curse* either.

    Luke 6:19-21New International Version (NIV)

    19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.

    20 Looking at his disciples, he said:

    Blessed are you who are poor,
    for yours is the kingdom of God.
    21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
    for you will be satisfied.
    Blessed are you who weep now,
    for you will laugh.

    I'm not going to imply you're a liar simply for missing that though.

    *You claimed that in a different post.
    Safka, you are NOT "unknown", you were loved by many, and you will not be forgotten. I will always remember you Puginator.

    Or Mr Kott just likes to argue. Even if it means taking the side of the wacky word faith people. How old is this guy???

    That's a pretty heavy accusation. If you think he's really a heretic, shouldn't you force him to change his faith tag?

    Isn't calling me a liar a pretty heavy accusation as well?

    And if we think he is heretical we will discuss the matter. You don't need to tell us how to run the site.

    Certainly, but two wrongs don't make a right (if, in fact, the accusations are wrong).

    Fair nuff. If it is decided that he must change his faith tag for being a heretic, hopefully you can lay out how you came to that decision. I may end up needing to change my faith tag as well.
