More Questions(Facts):
POINT #1: The Bible says: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." - Romans 12:20 NIV

COUNTER POINT #1: Yet, where in the Bible does it say, "If your enemy is 'addicted', feed the addiction"?



POINT #2: Jesus said in the Bible: "The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me." - Mark 14:7 NIV

COUNTER POINT #2: Is the "poor" the same as the demon posssesed? Is the "poor" the same as the demons? Is the "poor" the same as the Addicted? Moreover, didn't Jesus cast out the demons from the "poor"?



 
 
Catholics and Baptiss - How should They Intepret Scripture?
 
"When I was hungry..." versus "When I was addicted...."
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, - Matthew 25:35 NIV   QUESTION:
What should go here?

Isn't "hungry" very different than "possessed"?

And didn't Jesus drove out demons from the possessed?
Note: It has been said that a big reason New Orleans has a problem with the Homeless is because New Orleans has a lot of Catholics. Accordingly, please see the above table.
 
 
 
 
Feed the Poor versus Believe in the Poor's Stories
Did Jesus say:
(A) FEED the POOR
versus
B) BELIEVE the POOR and Every Single Story and Excuse they tell you without any verification. That is, do not ask around to verify the Poor stories. And if you are at a Homeless Shelter, you must believe every single story, reason, and perfect storm story they tell you.
 
 
Jesus and How to be Perfect
"give to the poor..." versus "give to the addicted...."
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” - Matthew 19:21 NIV   QUESTION:
What should go here?

Isn't the word "poor" very different than "addicted or possessed"?

And didn't Jesus drove out demons from the possessed?
 
 
Rock versus Sand
Matthew 7:24-27 - Didn't Jesus instruct us to build our house on rock instead of sand?
If so, how do you break the addiction with more cheap beer and wine?
 
 
QUESTION: Are you Feeding the Least of These? Or, Are you Feeding their Demons?
 
 
 of These...
'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
- Matthew 25:40 NIV

QUESTION:
What are you doing to the least of these brothers and sisters of Jesus?
(A) Are you Feeding The Least of These?
(B) Or, Are you Feeding their Demons?

Can you see the difference?
 
 
Is It Really Empathy? Or Is It Enablement (Or Entrapment)?


EMPATHY or ENABLEMENT (or Entrapment)?
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
- Matthew 25:40 NIV
  "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea."
- Mark 9:42 NIV
 
 
Christmas Spirit? Or Enablement?
Is allowing a Christmas tree underneath the I-10 overpass the Christmas Spirit? Or is it more "enablement" for the Homeless to do drugs and drink alcohol at former homeless camp to avoid the "rules" of homeless shelters of no drugs, no alcohol?
Homeless under Pontchartrain Expressway say cleanups necessary, often way of life | New Orleans - WDSU

Is it really Christman Spirit? Or is it ENABLEMENT?
 
 
A Question about the Good Samaritan
"On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you" - Luke 10:35 NASB
QUESTION:
Would the Good Samaritan take the half-dead man to an inn surrounded by demons?
That is, why place a Homeless Shelter, Soup Kitchen, or Food Bank in an area surrounded by drug dealers, criminals, and gas stations selling cheap beer? Or why place the non-profits mentioned above like a Homeless Shelter in an area that has historically had no decent jobs or businesses for decades due to crime and poverty?

 
 
And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
- Mark 9:29 KJV

14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. - Mark 9:29 KJV

 
 
 
Jesus at the Temple and the Money Changers

Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.“It is written,” he said to them, “ ‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’e but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’ - Matthew 21-12-13 NIV

QUESTION:
So, are you giving money to the Poor? Or are you being robbed by the Money Changers in the form of panhandlers, drugs addicts, alcoholics and even charities who say, "You are helping the Poor by giving to me"?

 
 
More Questions(Facts):
How do Liquor Stores and Gas Stations selling Alcohol on

    (a) every other corner of poor neighborhoods,
    (b) every other corner of ghettos, and
    (c) every other corner of the public housing,

help the Poor?

And how do (a) Lottery Tickets, (b) Video Poker and (c) Gambling help the Poor?

And what is the CHURCH doing about this? Do they sit on the sidelines (so they don't offend their own members) and watch the Poor to fall to addiction so they can offer social services in the future? If that were true, it would sound very much like the Temple Money Changers, wouldn't it?
 
 
 
 
POINT - Jesus and "Feed the Poor".
COUNTER-POINT - Jesus also said, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
