    The question was WWJD? and there it is, he would take every penny out of his pocket and give it to the poor or sick.

    What about the tithe. The bible is pretty firm on that, 10%. Is that not forced altruism?

    That isn't Universal Health Care. Actual charity is taking money from your own pocket, and giving it to someone in need, at your own free will. This plan will take money from some against their own free will and give to others. That isn't charity. It's robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    So you can force altruism? You can force goodness from the inner soul of men with taxation? That's quite a feat. Not even God can do that.

    Jesus also said on taxation "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and what is God's unto God." Once again, Money is not important when your soul is at stake. Someone also said that you can't take it with you.

    How exactly is the passage supposed to help your argument? Are you replying to my comment on tithes? What do you think a tithe was for before the invention of the mega-church? It was basically a poor tax.

    When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.

    Lev 23:22

    Voted other.

    Jesus would hang out with a bunch of hookers and tax collectors and homeless folk, and such, heal a bunch of people, preach at a bunch of people, tell his friends off for sh!t they hadn't done yet, then get himself killed.

    After a few days of R&R in the grave, he would get up rested and rejuvenated then take off, chuckling to himself over the stupid wars, inquisitions, and online debates that would occur in his name over the next couple of thousand years.

    He probably be wondering where all the poor people are and he'd be hard pressed to find them.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
