Response to William Seger (Reply #21)

24. Catholic school here. Yep. You're spot-on, William Seger.

Matthew 25: 35-45. That's the one about "whatever you do to the LEAST OF MY BRETHREN, you do to Me."

Our Lord also never included in the Beatitudes anything about "blessed are the rich" or "blessed are the warmakers".

And He never advised the rich young man to come on in and buy Me a palace so we can live like kings! He told the rich young man who asked "how do I join up?" to go and sell all his possessions, give the money to the poor, and THEN come back. And as I recall from that passage, the rich young man did not like that advice, and went away, sad.

Oddly enough, you NEVER EVER hear these pompous, sanctimonious hypocrites with their religionist empires and TV networks and real estate portfolios and fancy cars, designer clothes, chauffeurs, servants, publicists, entourages, and fawning hangers-on mention any of these three sets of Christ's teachings. i have yet to hear ANY televangelist build a sermon on any of that.
