//Matthew15:26...Ok Nicole, what does this have to do with anything?//

Are you capable of reading verses before and after the cited verse?

You claimed the CC patterned our charity system from the Jewish people.

I am telling you that Jesus demands MORE from the Catholic Church!
You don't just treat your own kind with charity, but to everyone.

//The Gentiles were referred to as didn't think it was talking about house pets.//

In the parable the dog used WAS THE HOUSE PET! It was under the table. Or you think the dog begging was the neighbor's house pet?

Anyway, do you know what is a parable?

It seems you are one who doesn't have the ear to hear Jesus speaks about in the Bible.

Matthew15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the childrens bread, and to cast it to dogs.

Ok Nicole, what does this have to do with anything? The Gentiles were referred to as didn't think it was talking about house pets. So are you saying your wages you never received is considered casting it to dogs by the Catholic Church? Even Jesus praised a good Samaratian for caring for someone ....

So... Exactly who are the dogs here to you Nicole...Protestants? Non the ones Mother Theresa cared for? Who? And Nicole Matthew 15 was in reference to SPIRITUAL MATTERS, not physical ones or not the poor or hungry in which even Israel helped AND was not out of the Levites 10 % either.

You shall not take a wife, nor shall you have sons or daughters in this place (now finish reading verse 2, (Jeremiah 16:1 AND 2). For thus says the Lord: Do not enter the house of mourning, nor go to lament or bemoan them . . . Also you shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and drink.

So, Jeremiah was not allowed to get married, have children, go to funerals, or attend (wedding) feasts. Wow.

And you use these verses to support a Catholic Priesthood? Those were dangerous times for Judah, as you ( I'm sure you did not) READ WHAT HAPPENED and WHY at that time God instructed Jeremiah not to marry.....and ONLY APPLIED TO JEREMIAH..Not Prophets in general.

Kathr: Note in Numbers 18:21, 10% ONLY went to the Levi

Show me OT Scripture where God commanded the Jews to give 10% to the Gentiles?

In fact do you remember Matthew 15:26?

No the CC isn't following the Jewish old method of charity. We are following Jesus' charity commandment.

//And women were not forced to not marry and serve the temple in stead.//

Where you forced to marry your husband? Neither was I. In fact, many try to enter the convent and are turned away.

//Even the Priests and High Priests in Israel married and had children--Kathr

So God was wrong in Jeremiah 16:2?
"You must not marry and have sons or daughters."

Paul is wrong in 1 Cor 7:1 and 8?

StrongAxe, you have to remember you were not in a Community. You still had to drive home, take care of your family, personal things and etc.

If it wasn't for my illness, I would have been able to continue the work as the Sisters do today.

The Sisters have a system and it works.

Look at Mother Teresa's Sisters. They work much HARDER than our Community everyday of the week.

//How can Christians be called Christ's slaves,//

Are you saying Paul was wrong in calling himself a slave of Christ? Romans 1:1

//the RCC used to forbid people from leaving.---StrongAxe

It is so IRONIC to hear PROTESTANTS make that argument.

Please cite the year and place people couldn't leave the Catholic Faith.
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/22/17

SORRY Moderator, I didn't see that you DID POST my post to StrongAxe on the Commandments of Jesus.

There are two 'Commandments of Jesus.'

Should Christians ever "loot"?
---David on 9/15/17

I believe David gave the best response. I would not only pay for the items after order was restored, but leave my name, phone number, address and an itemized list. Plus, I would share them with my neighbor.

StrongAxe is correct that the food will spoil anyway and they can not sell damaged water bottles or cans.

I would also call the police to let them know that I took the items.

I am sure the Police Officer would give me a strong lecture, but allow me to keep the necessary items.

Police Officers and Business Store Owners have hearts as everyone else.

I confess it always makes me CRINGE to see videos of my brothers and sisters as the Looters 90% of the time.

I would hate to be put in this situation if I really needed food or water.

Live on St. John - Even on a good day saw bad things happening -

If a natural disaster occurs, and people are starving, and there is food going to waste inside a store that can save their lives and it's going to go rotten anyway, I don't think anyone would fault them for taking it. However, who "needs" jewelry or electronic equipment? Most of the looters you see on TV are people using natural disasters as an excuse to needlessly enrich themselves. They're just using the disaster as an excuse for theft. They're doing it not out of necessity, but out of greed.
---StrongAxe on 9/14/17

"Thou shalt not steal", yet "men do not despise a thief, if he steals to satisfy his soul when he is hungry. But, if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold, he shall give all the substance of his house." Proverb 6:30,31
---josef on 9/13/17

In almost all situations looting would be wrong. It would have to be life or death definitely not for pleasure.
---Tim on 9/12/17

I don't see any difference between burglary and looting, unless it's food or water taken as an act of survival, with the intent of paying for the items when order is restored.
