    I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.

    Buzz here is my rendition

    I was hungry and you gave me food so everyday I would look for you to see if you had free food for me. I was thirsty and you gave me drink ,so everyday I came looking for you for because its easier than working.
    When I was naked you cloth me and the cloths you gave me were not nice enough so when you went to work the next morning I raided you closet.
    When I went to prison you came to me and bailed me out.
    I was so appreciative I called all my friends and they came over to your place and we had a party in your name.

    When you got home from work you had a really big mess to clean up.

    I left you a note thanking you for your compassion

    It would depend on your definition of compasionate and how you see the world

    I dont think it is compassionate to keep catching fish for a guy or his family when all they would have to do to feed themselves is get out of bed in the morning.

    Pete
    I absolutely agree that compassion is seen more in helping someone to become self sufficient than in caring for someone as a dependent. Training someone for dependency -- which we do on a regular basis whether intentionally or not -- is the ultimate degradation. However, simply blaming someone for their condition without making any effort to help them change is pretty much like killing someone who has insulted you and then walking over to their body and yelling "That will teach you!"

    Get real dude, some of us LOVE America as much as your group hates it!!
    I'm not sure what group you are referring to. l love America and I love its traditions. The most valuable of these is democracy, which too many on the right now seem willing to sacrifice when they disagree with election results.

    Conservative group aims to delete ‘liberal bias’ from Bible

    By Daniel Tencer

    "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

    That famous line, attributed to Jesus in Luke 23:34, could well apply to the folks at Conservapedia -- the "conservative version" of Wikipedia -- who have embarked on a project to rewrite the Bible.

    In an effort to rid the Good Book of "liberal bias," the group has set up the Conservative Bible Project, which aims to rewrite the Bible from a modern, conservative perspective.

    "Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations," the project's Web site asserts.

    And the line quoted above is one of the group's targets for deletion in a truly "conservative" Bible. The "forgive them father" quote "is a favorite of liberals but should not appear in a conservative Bible," Conservapedia states.


    And evidently many of Jesus' other teachings -- from the "turn the other cheek" lesson, to his disdain for profiteering -- will also no longer be acceptable in the conservative Bible.

    "Socialistic terminology permeates English translations of the Bible, without justification," the Web site states -- a strange assertion, given that English versions of the Bible date back at least to the 16th century, while socialism as a concept was formed in the 18th century.

    To combat the Bible's "socialism," the Conservative Bible Project wants to see Biblical use of the words "comrade," "labor" and "fellow" (as in "fellow worker") reduced.

    Not surprisingly, the project has come under ridicule and derision from some corners.

    "Jesus was obviously misquoted all over the place," blogger P.Z. Myers writes sarcastically. "So what to do? When your claim of godly authority rests on your interpretation of God's holy word, but God's holy words contradict your desired ends, you're in a bit of a pickle. There is a solution, though: rewrite the Bible and change the liberal bits!"

    "The insane hubris of this really staggers the mind," writes Rod Dreher at Beliefnet. "These right-wing ideologues know better than the early church councils that canonized Scripture? They really think it's wise to force the word of God to conform to a 21st-century American idea of what constitutes conservatism? These jokers don't worship God. They worship ideology."

    I have no problem forgiving someone who has done me wrong. People change,,,but I'll be dam if it happens to me again.

    I Often wonder about people who pull verses out of context and give their interpretation.
    How much time did you put into researching how that verse fits with everything else the bible has to say about the subject.

    conservatives,liberals ,commies,marxists,,fascists,, ect.. can be just as forgiving as anybody else.

    Do you have any idea why JC said turn the other cheek?

    Personally Buzz ,,people need to leave the wording the way it is.

    I think its commical you stick me in the same room as these guys.

    I think its you that should hook up with them

    Mans basic spiritual problem is that he doesnt believe the book has integrety. If they did they wouldn't throw stuff around so nilly willy. They would spend alot of time trying to figure him out if they thought he was real.

    After all is did creat the heavans and the earth,,,which is alittle more intriging than a politics

    Just using some logic here.

    1. Yes, Jesus was not in favor of responding to evil with violence. Turing the other cheek is a way of robbing your assailant the satisfaction of having humiliated you.
    2. No thanks. They aren't even talking about going back to the original and translating. They want to take the King James version and modify it to take out liberal ideas that they don't feel belong there.
