Re: Doing What Jesus Says
Phat, if you can actually manage to ignore Ringo and jar in all these matters for the last 16 years I have no idea how to get through.

Except maybe this one:

I will give you $100 if you can provide me with a 5 page college freshman analysis with at least 5 footnotes according to Turabian style, at no more than a 20% flag rate for plagiarism. The topic of this term paper is:

Compare and contrast the Gospel according to St. Matthew with Bernie Sanders platform for the 2020 Democratic primary election.

No slummin', no Shining-level typewriter exercises, no bullshit.

Must achieve a 70% grade as judged by your peers (as in forum members).

Obviously, the paper will be published here. Should you achieve a passing grade you do not need to provide any contact information to receive the award. As a librarian, I have a special set of skills, I will hunt you down, I will find you, and I will hand you $100 ($150 if it takes longer than 30 days). If you run off to the Yukon, well, no find, no money.

Hey, the acquisition of money alone should pique you interest being the good capitalist image you project. You post a lot, so it should not even be work.

I look forward to the results of this challenge.

1) Where do I get a reasonable and concise summation of the Sanders platform?

From Sanders, here

2) Do you have a preference from which Bible version I read Matthew? I prefer either NKJV or ESV.

Any common standard version is fine, so either is acceptable.

And since we are all altruistic, be we Christian or Humanist, we can agree to give the $100.00 to a worthy charitable cause.

Sure: DAV Charitable Services Trust or anything that has a perfect score on Charity Navigator.

That's the spirit. Good luck.

Re: Doing What Jesus Says
So says the person who won't even show us they have read and understand the Gospel According to Matthew despite a $100 bribe.

Phat, you were given this assignment because of posts like this. Stop making your philosophy of life all about you to the exclusion of others. Otherwise, you will never find love in this life and there will be no second chances.

You should be ashamed to have to be lectured about Christianity by (what you would call) a non-believing heretic.

I hate having to pick on you, but that means I still have a shred of faith you may understand eventually. Otherwise, I would not even try.

Edited by anglagard, : replace the last word care with try, it's more accurate since I will always have some hope.

May I remind you that I lost my Mother on December 20th and have been in mourning.

Sorry, I did not know or possibly remember, I don't read every post in every thread since I have other things going on.

I will get around to your challenge soon.

Take your time.

Let me give you a bit of helpful advice. Selfishness is not a part of anything attributed to Jesus, quite the opposite. The greatest advocate of selfishness was the atheist Ayn Rand.

Re: What is the "Holy Spirit"?
Phat, stop pestering jar, whose understanding is far beyond apparently yours is, stop siding with ignorance, and start reading the Gospel According to Matthew as I fucking beg you to do.

Stop cursing others for their understanding, and start working on your own, for Christ's sake.

The Universe is not about you.
