Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give. –David Livingstone
A word from Mr. Livingstone to entice your attention to a fantastic article from that bigot of askme, Church Rules, Stalin Drools, in which she pursues to demonstrate a first-century approach toward life in the church regarding the possessions God has blessed us with.
It is with much insight that she reveals our fear; the well will run dry if I give, but with much enthusiasm disputes our fear with the revelation; we don’t draw from a well, but a spring.
The bigot also does a little borrowing herself as we are reminded when the multitudes needed fed, and the disciples began their him-haw, Jesus’ instructions were, “You feed them… don’t send them elsewhere,” to make one ponder our current dependence on government assistance.
My meanderings will not do justice to her article, so take a gander for yourself. One final act of thievery however… “Take that, Stalin.”
