“Jesus preached often about the personal responsibility of each individual to help himself. Feeding the poor is the work of the devil.”

“I went back to your Comments History to figure out if you were serious or sarcastic. Found your comment from 2010: "“All this talk about a god forgiving your mistakes really takes the pressure off being stupid. I'm sorry please forgive me for saying that...... Wow.....this is easy.” Not many posts make me laugh. You got me. No fan button for you on this thread; I'll find one on another of your comments somewhere. Looking forward to more of your warped humor. Thx.”

“Your sarcasm is a little too subtle I'm afraid. Might want to add a (sarcasm) sign at the end to make it clearer.”

“Really? Then there must have been an imposter that told you that.
Great crowds of people in the area heard that Jesus was near. They ran to see him, bringing their sick friends and relatives. When the boat landed, Jesus saw all the men, women and children and had compassion on them. He taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who were sick.
Looking at the crowd, which numbered about 5,000 men, not counting women and children, Jesus asked his disciple Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?" (John 6:5, NIV) Jesus knew what he was going to do, but he asked Philip to test him. Philip replied that even eight months' wages would not be enough to give each person even one bite of bread.
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, had more faith in Jesus. He brought forward a young boy who had five small loaves of barley bread and two small fish. Even so, Andrew wondered how that could help.
Jesus ordered the crowd to sit down in groups of fifty. He took the five loaves, looked up to heaven, gave thanks to God his Father, and passed them to his disciples to be distributed. He did the same with the two fish.
Everyone—men, women and children—ate as much as they wanted! Jesus miraculously multiplied the loaves and fishes so there was more than enough. Then he told his disciples to gather the leftovers so nothing was wasted.”

“No it's not easy. Becoming a follower of Christ means relying on him and not on yourself . Asking for forgiveness means you acknowledge that you messed up, that you don't have all the answers. Both of these are very hard to do - especially since we've convinced ourselves that we are invincible, all knowing, completely autonomous creatures.
As to whether or not it is stupid - remember when you were a kid and you thought that you had all the answers. And as you got older and wiser, you realized that there was a lot you didn't know. Well. that's the path of Christian growth as well.
So not easy and not stupid. Quite the opposite..”

“Those who "really" love God, want to be "better people". They'll work at abandoning their "sins" - even if it takes the rest of their lives to "get it right".
However, many who claim to be religious - don't really love God. So, yes - you'll often watch them giving themselves absolution for their actions.
And - yes - they often do make it look "easy" and "stupid".”
“Sure if he becomes a Chrisiian it's pretty easy to be forgiven. But if you're nice and believe in me I give you presents.. I know if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake. Get off the naughty list Tiger.

“Did you watch Jon Stewart on the subject?
Samantha Bee thinks he should convert to a Jehovah's Witness. "It is like Scientology for Black People."
“i believe when Tiger Woods accepts that Voldemort has returned and embraces the guidance of Dumbledore, he can then recast an idolization spell over the world and maybe even help pass meaningful health care.”
