I think you'll find that Jesus was very clear that helping others was exactly the wrong thing to do.

Have you been listening to those American TV evangelists again?

If only he'd been a bit more clear we might not have had so much bother!

Tell that to the Samaritan who was in a spot of bother.

He was very clear; its the folk that have followed on from him who have muddied the waters!

If/when the Archbishop meets Jesus he may have a bit of explaining to do about his multi £billion, tax free, business empire built up with a 10% "tax" on some of the poorest in society; while he resides in a palace.

He was very clear. Help people who don't deserve it, be good to people who don't do good to you. It's all there.

The Samaritan wasn't in any bother but he did help someone who was.

You are indeed correct!  I was way too tired last night to be posting.  I meant to say 'who helped someone in a spot of bother'.

The parable of the talents gives one very clear indication of what Jesus thought about the management of money.

If so, why this?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleansing_of_the_Temple

The parable was an analogy he used to persuade the disciples to get out and evangelise - it starts with "It will be like...". He does not anywhere in it condone the actions of the master in the story. He's just explaining what it will be like if they sit on their bums rather than spreading the word.

Go to the Vatican if you want the best example of excess.

Remind me, how easy is it for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven?

Many moons ago when I was around 20 years old my much older boss said to me that when youngsters started work they should be paid a lot of money that decreases in real terms over the years.  

His view was based on the idea that youngsters can spend the money, buying a house, holidays etc. and enjoy themselves rather than having to wait till they are in their 50's or 60's when they may not have the health or ability to do so.

What about the parable of the 7 TRL posters?

6 were wise and STFU while the other one kept rambling on in bold type.

Or something.

I remember the good old days when the AoC was an effeminate old bloke who'd pop up on TV occasionally and say things like 'I often think of God as a bicycle'.

Now its gay vicar this, ###### marriage that...no wonder he's losing it.

That wasn't a very rude word edited out by the way....

Seriously, it blocked gay? Soemone needs to have a word with the sweary filter.

Oh no it wasn't that. What was it?

If you get your kicks that way there's still Thought for the Day.
