"Jesus said all or nothing. Not halfway." What Bible version is that?

Credence - Jesus doesn't like "lukewarm". He said either all or nothing. Not halfway.

Congratulations to a huge untaxed business for their successful advertising campaign. Let me guess, the free items were all made in China and the food was loaded with HFCS & MSG.

Needless to say, the outreach was a good thing.

Needful to say, "Christians" aren't supposed to do "good" things. They're supposed to do God's Will (according to Jesus, anyway). That involves giving all your money and time away to the poor.

So Jazzie was partially correct in that they refer to them as "needy" for a reason. If there are still needy people in the world, then at least many "Christians" have not been doing their job.

It isn't the governments job to provide jobs - it's our own, but as shown here, we're too spoiled to know that.

Seadog really, are you really that stupid to think those of us who pay into your welfare are all work and no play? Some of us get time off , some don't have 9 to five jobs. Ever hear of break time? It's a perk, a benefit of working.

I did not see any reference to politics or making jobs in that letter. Someone's disc is stuck.

"Why is it that "Christians" insist upon using that phrase in the modern day in condescension?" maybe because they are concerned for folks like you, Sir. Clearly there is an impetus.

"...People need insurance and jobs", well I thought jobs were Obama's number one priority and there were going to be all kinds of jobs if the stimulus was passed a few years ago..." AND THAT TRILLION DISAPPEARED A FEW YEARS AGO. Someone is a slick, sly, sneaky, dangerous, ruinous, devious individual.

If they're difficult to obtain...they need to get better paying jobs or a job period

Lol..I know once we said something, stupidity would show up in droves. "GET A JOB". Sorry chum, my spouse and I already got one, and a home that's paid for. Is someone jealous?

Did Reverend Mel make it to the outreach or was he too busy fighting for his political right to be a tool?

"Jazzie - practice what you preach and GET A JOB. There's a saying about people living in glass houses."

Weird, not sure where you got the fact about Jazzie not having a job...

Straw man, oh straw man...

"Jazzie - I am praying for you."

Praying for what? Because you're soooo much better than Jazzie?

Why is it that "Christians" insist upon using that phrase in the modern day in condescension? Pray for yourself.

While I may not agree with the theology behind the scenes, I do appreciate what religious organizations do for their communities.

Jazzie - I am praying for you. I really have no idea how "things like this proves there's no God". Insurance and jobs are very important but hope and love are needs that many more are lacking. I am hoping that the items given out were truly needed (as I feel they were). These items are difficult to obtain for many families, they were not cheap when we got them for our kids.

Blah blah blah more sappy nonsense. It would be nice for these places to give people what they really need, not wants. People need insurance and jobs. Things like this letter proves there's no God.
