    Just saw this in the local paper:
    Hmm. What would Christ donate to? Helping the sick, poor, and outcast perhaps?

    Jesus had a problem with money and excess wealth. He was definitely anti-materialist.

    He would not donate wealth. He would however, expect those with wealth to donate to those who had not.

    Otherwise, he would do the work himself, which is precisely what he did and advocated his followers do.

    I make these statements based on MY interpretation of passages in the New Testament.

    Since Evo's not around I'm going to make the call that this is a religious discussion not appropriate for the forum.
