    John 21:14-17
    New International Version (NIV)
    14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
    15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” 16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” 17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep!"

    Sheesh!
    Glad I wasn’t at Joel’s depressing house for Thanksgiving.
    Maybe you should just eat twigs AND get off food stamps!

    @Jib76

    Try reading II Thessalonians 3:10-12.


    The New Testament started with Paul. And he converted a lot to Christianity. But then the Christians wanted to know more about Jesus than the little bits that Paul had written, and someone wrote a lost Gospel in ‘the language of the Hebrews’. (It’s never been found, so some cynical scholars got the idea that the early Christian historians must have made it up, which makes things tidy since no trace has been found after 1,950 years.) Then Mark wrote a brief biography of Jesus in Greek. About ten years later, Luke wrote a much longer biography of Jesus, plus the Acts of the Apostles. The Jesus of Luke does not seem to agree with Paul at all. Which might be because the Jesus of Luke is much closer to the historical Jesus than the Jesus referenced in Paul’s Epistles.

    Right wing greed is good destroys the world without conscience.

    I seriously doubt it. There’s too many different denominations within Christianity. Some Christians firmly believe that their beliefs are the only real beliefs and all others are false. Others only believe in the idea of Christianity. They don’t adhere to the actual teachings of Christ.

    Who’s starving in the US Lib-ConMan?
    Links?
    Being a little hungry and having a crappy apartment is what convinced most of us to work hard. Maybe you should try it.

    Doctor Warbucks, you’re right. We’re not allowed to call Pett a moron. No need when he does stupid things like this.

    The part that says that Bush’s recession has ended.

    It amazes me how the liars and the media (same thing, actually) keep repeating, OVER and OVER, the story about “food stamp CUTS.”
    .
    And it amazes me how, OVER and OVER, the story about “the biggest tax hikes”, re: the expiration of the TEMPORARY bush tax cuts, passed by the nuclear option.
    .
    In the case of food stamps, there is a multiplying effect of that spending on the economy. In the case of the Bush Tax Cuts, it and his UNFINANCED wars drove the (expletive) debt crisis. Billions for subsidies, oil companies, tax cuts, and billionaires, but taking food out of the mouths of the poor is all you (expletive) conservatives think about.

    Sometimes a wake up call comes at inopportune times and is depressing, but I appreciate Mr. Pett drawing our attention to these unfortunate truths. If you think it’s depressing to talk about it, think of how depressing it will be if we don’t change anything and destroy the planet.
