WTF- if you belong in a pulpit then just preach your shit to own your congregation and keep it there.
Since when did churchgoers own the rights to quoting the Bible.
And while we're at it, which part of "I'm not Christian"are you having trouble with?
This is a punting site ... ? Punt, review, and ...
Yes, I do both. And in case you haven't noticed, I do it without bearing any ill-will towards lurkers ... which, you know, is what the subject of this thread all about?
... not a forum to quote obscure passages or where will it end?
In relation to the thread topic, the context of that entire verse was selflessness. Which goes along with the spirit of sharing on a forum like this, and is also what I'm trying to advocate.
Granted, the "love thy enemies" shit at the beginning is misleading ... but I couldn't find any saying/idiom that purely said "don't expect anything in return", so sue me.
Instead of jumping to conclusions next time, perhaps you need to gain a little perspective first? Just my view too.
