    Personally, I'd rather see my tax dollars go to helping the poor. I always lived as Paul said; if we don't work we don't eat. But many are beyond being able to work.

    You summed it all up with the very first word you typed, "Personally." Yes, it IS a personal matter, and we have no right to force our personal positions on others.

    Abraham Kuiper explains that Jerusalem communism says "what's mine is yours." Modern communism says "what's yours is mine."

    Why?

    Why?

    Have you built a shelter, erected a tent in a park, provided heating, cooling, food, drink, etc. regularly with your funds, time and effort for homeless people?

    Has your Church left it's doors unlocked, for the homeless to gather, sleep on the pews, use the bath rooms, does it have showers for them, and food in a kitchen area...as the Christian things to do?


    Barbarism? So it is the homeless people, you see as barbarians...not acceptable to what you think a community should be?

    People who live in homes are brutalized, murdered, stolen from, beated, raped, tortured....etc. etc. also.

    If the answer is to put such homeless people IN homes because of those things...
    Should we also take people OUT of homes because of those things happening IN homes?

    Are you oblivious to the numerous agencies and thousands of homeless shelter across the US?

    Also, could you define "homeless"?

    The current U.S.A. response is an organized effort supporting barbarism, brutality and murder of the homeless.

    I also have a small gym at home. But the "Y" offers about 50 different full-size machines and at least thirty different classes of all kinds, with instructors... AND an Olympic-size pool with a giant hot tub whirlpool. And, it is all included in my insurance plan.
    They also put on all sorts of social events. And, a full indoor basketball court.

    Personally i favor the Idea of Liberty...

    Free to provide for oneself;
    Free to go without;
    Free to work and eat;
    Free to not work and be hungry;
    Free to pay for a home;
    Free to wander and sleep in the woods;
    Free to take care of oneself;
    Free to beg the government to be your daddy.
    Free for the gov't to demand I pay for another.
    Free for me to say no.
    Free for me to choose to whom I give with Joy.

    Glory to God,
    Merry Christmas,
    Taken

    Willie T ~

    Astounding how there is no shortage of men, deciding how an other should be compelled to spend their money, their time.

    Good golly...should I be so "UNBUSY" to fill my time with "how to spend other people's money"......LOL

    Where is that Scriptural teaching? LOL
    Oh...guess would be, Political Science 101. Duh!

    God Bless,
    Merry Christmas,

    America has long supported barbarism, brutality, and murder. It's supporters are many. There are those who would want this evil stopped, and there are those who would not.
    Micah 3:3 is a telling verse of the hidden motive of many for supporting the status quo of barbarism, brutality, and murder.
    "3 who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them, and break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron."

    I am chronically homeless, with a smartphone, no computer, and I am currently led by the Lord to tackle a larger issue, as I have expressed in part in this thread.

    Before tackling the larger issues, focus on coming out of homelessness, and settling down to a normal existence.

    No. Instead of you, I serve the Lord.

    Even the apostles had some means of supporting themselves.

    There is no reason you cannot serve God while getting back on your feet.

    Being disabled is not the same as being lazy or milking the system.

    No one can help anyone if they are not safe from foreign and domestic enemies.

    Why not spend the money loving enemies instead of provoking them?

    There is one thing wrong with the "Y". Twice, I have wracked-up my back because I jumped on more than I could handle, before I worked up to it and got my muscles in shape.
