Verse of the day

by thoughtfulconservative

Matthew 15:32,

Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.”

From my favorite progressive evangelicals, Sojourners.

They forgot to add the rest of the verse,

“So Jesus called on the government to increase aid to the poor and to tax the rich so that the programs for the poor could be funded.”

  1. That must be one of those inconsistencies we hear so much about in the Bible. How could they leave out a line as important as that?
