Balance

Perhaps people will argue with me saying that's your interpretation But I did not write the bible Thou shalt not kill appears to me means we should not kill anyone I don't know how you can interpret it any other way It did not say you can kill people if it's for God it said Thou shalt not kill I did not write it the God you say you believe wrote the ten commandments The parable of the talents I believe tells to invest Gods money the Church believe that bringing people into the church building Gods Congregation is what he meant by investing in talents but God said He didn't like people wasting his money The one that simply buried his talent was punished I did not write that parable of the talents that was, the disciple's repeating what Jesus told them He said he could be a hard and cruel master So I don't think I'd like to face him having spent his money the parable of the good samaritan also come from the bible and every Christian was supposed to follow the word of Christ and look after their neighbors like the Good Samaritan So the Church being Gods representation on earth were supposed, to look after the people they were supposed to help the poor Monasteries in the fifteenth century new about crop rotation they knew how to keep the ground healthy they could have helped The poor in Scotland build productive farms build arts crafts and products and make sales to feed themselves's Instead, they took the tithe and used it to buy feather beds and luxury With great power comes great responsibility The church taking Gods Money Have a responsibility to follow the words of God Thou shalt not kill should stop the wars Investing money could overcome climate change creating work for the unemployed worldwide would overcome poverty I'm not a chemist but if we take hydrogen out of the Ocean to make Hydrogen gas for cars we would be releasing oxygen into the air Releasing oxygen into the atmosphere help to repair an ozone layer made of three oxygen atoms linked together I'm not sure if burning the hydrogen would intern release atoms that again linked with the oxygen atoms to again create more pollutions you have scientists that have ideas Ideas and knowledge better than mine teaching people to become investors linked with their ideas could create companies to overcome the problems of the planet The Greenies are right we need the trees Australian people are right we need to stop fires we need balance
