Right, so you go for the most literal interpretation of scripture, to avoid doing what God actually wanted.Oh, I absolutely ADORE my agnostic neighbor. And he's a Georgia fan, while I'm a Tech grad. But we both own lawn tools and share them with one another.
Hmm, just like those Pharisees he railed against.
Well, you asserted your wishful thinking as though it is fact...I already pointed out your blunder in thinking He said to sell ALL possessions. Why are you bringing attention to that blunder?
Do not be so modest, stiggy, you are the one who found it!Then why did you fail so miserably to show one?
When they returned to their families, they used the nets owned by their families.They had NETS!!
They gave away all they could, keeping the bare minimum to live on in a shared fund.Yep. And .............? They didn't give them away. They SHARED them. Did you mean to refute yourself?
Is that what you do? No.
I get it. I would not want to give away all my stuff either. So of course you make up excuses, you twist Jesus words, you pretend it does not really apply to you. And that is great! Seriously.
Because every Christian who ignores Jesus' instructions is just another reason for non-Christians to ignore what Jesus said.
