Great post FrGamble. I love how people like Mr V get exposed in these type of threads. Their hostility makes their position look like the backwards/ignorant one. I agree with ayecarumba. I see tithes/offerings like forgiveness. The person you're forgiving might not care if you forgive them or not; it's more for self therapy. God doesn't need our tithes and offerings; it is a lesson in greed.

Hey everybody I was wondering if we could have a weekly discussion on a short passage from the Bible... No matter what your beliefs may be concerning God, let's not attack religion, faith, or the lack of either in our posts. Stay focused again on the passage and try to suspend your disbelief if you need to in order to comment on what you think the words mean to you.


You're posting a bible passage and looking for discussion from a bunch of mathematically and scientifically honed minds plus a host of gambling degenerates, most of whom post under an alias. No offense but good luck. (see exhibit "A" above, courtesy of MrV)

Other than that, I like Ayecarumba's response.

I got a funny note today from my mom:



Your Mom is pretty awesome. I think it is safe to say, that your mom is not like my mom. I got a note the other day from my mom reminding me to come over for my sister's birthday. That was all.

Let them eat cake!
Gambling is a metaphor for life. Hang around long enough and it's all gone.

Disbelief is hostility?

Given the choice between Superstition and Reality ... I'll take door #2 every time.

Isn't any religious belief better than none?
