You don't understand charity, clearly. Charity is when you give to someone freely, expecting nothing from that person or anyone else connected in return. You did not give freely. You gave out of a demented plan to win her affections back, by your own admission. That is not charity, that is at best bribery, and at worst a pathetic attempt at soliciting a woman as if she was a whore.I cared for Melinda who hated me.
You don't. Once you have all basic needs secured and debts paid, the rest of that money can go to charity. You proclaim that you are different from everyone else, that you truly care about the poor, but you squirm just like everyone else when confronted with this simple fact. Every time you buy a video game, every time you buy a new shirt, every time you invest your money in some hare-brained investment scheme; that was money that could have gone to the poor. I only hold you to a standard beyond the human level because you demand that everyone else live above that level. Practice what you preach, and remove the plank from your eye before speaking of the splinter in your brother's.You don't understand the simple fact that you need to grow money to be able to send people money
Correct. I am saying that, right now, you don't give to the poor at all, putting you beneath both. By your own scheme, you will be at the level of the Pharisee; which is not a good place to be. Allow me to remind you of another verse:When Jesus said that about the woman he was praising her for giving everything whereas he was condemning the pharisees for thinking themselves so good when they were being selfish with their money.
"It is easier for a camel to pass through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
Because you do not care about the hardships of the world. The fact you squirm and dance and flee from your basic obligations to your own family, much less selfless love towards others, shows that. You use the hardships of the world to try and whip me into compliance, because assuming the moral high ground is your fallback tactic. I am not stupid enough to fall for your spurious pseudo-intellectualism, and I refuse to play along with your subterfuges, so your only remaining tactic, besides fleeing this website for a time and coming back with an "update", is to try and paint yourself as morally righteous. Over three hundred pages testify to the opposite.how is the hardships of the world beneath the dignity of reply?
And, of course, let us not forget what you pretend not to see: you have claimed that chemical reactions that "alter the chemical structure of an object" are "unnatural" and "an affront to God". Your entire superstitious belief about medicine and cooking is founded on this cornerstone. However, every chemical reaction does this; when you sweat, when you breathe, when you eat and drink, all of these things involve incredible amounts of chemical interaction that causes structures to change, new chemicals to be created, old ones destroyed, etc. Do you bite the bullet and say that natural chemical interactions created by God's will are unnatural and an affront to God, or do you admit that your categorization of "unnatural chemistry" is based on an elementary-schooler's understanding of chemical reactions?
