Think of this promise


That the biographers of Jesus tell us he made. That those who believed in him should not worry about food, clothing or drink that these would be attended to by great providence. Imagine what men and women would do with the time freed from mundane Labour. That they needn’t worry about housing.

It does seem to me, that every where we look, all christ cultists are busy looking for these necessities just like the rest of us. And if there are any who are not doing useful work, they know there are others who are doing the useful work for them.

Or maybe I misunderstood the promise and it is meant for a future life, at which time they wouldn’t need food or shelter.

    There’s a little club membership fee before you can join the club. Payment due upfront.

    Yes, I believe this passage is misinterpreted. Yeshua was an apocalyptic teacher, preaching the end of days was at hand, not off in some far off future but right in his time. “Pay no mind to the morrow” not food, clothing, family, children, nothing.

    “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
    Matthew 16:28

    Apparently, he was quite mistaken.

  4. One could wishfully assume those had been times of plenty, without the burden of greed and monetary values. The more obvious case is, as it is with most of those religious texts; reality got lost in translation and morphed into fairy tales.

    We’ll never really know – for certain – what is actual and what is fictional as to belief systems. Humans possess quite vivid imaginations! 😉 Naked hugs!
