Mike, talk about missing the boat. I read the article by Jay Williams Again, when people interpret the bible; it is their interpretation which not everyone agrees. So, that is why I stick to John 3:16. I will address some of Mr. Williams who states “I cannot claim complete objectivity--- for humans such is impossible--- but I will try to describe what seems obvious to me.” So, he at least realizes it is but one thought. He is picking and choosing to fit his dream. His concepts do not follow most basic Christian philosophy and I am not biblical scholar but here is a crack at this illogical thinking individuals topics.

1. Poverty: “First of all, Jesus demands complete, voluntary poverty… and live like the birds of the air and the flowers of the field.” I have to disagree. The focus of this section of Matthew is not to focus on money as God will provide. Don’t worry; God will provide. It doesn’t say live in the fields in poverty. Don’t focus on storing up treasures on the earth but do Jesus’ work. If you serve money and focus on being rich, you will find it difficult to belief in Jesus. This could be said of any deadly sin. How does one know when someone believes in Jesus and how do you define poverty? How does this poverty work with 2 Thessalonians 3; On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. “If a man will not work, he shall not eat."

2. Hate Family: “Second, Jesus requires his followers to renounce all family ties, indeed, even to hate father and mother and wife and brother and sister.” Matthew 19:29; “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.” So, was Jesus talking about his disciplines since Peter asked the question? Mr. Williams’s interruption is ludicrous and I don’t have the time to cite many other references about being a good husband, wife, parent etc. Mark 3:31-35 35; “Whoever does God's will is my brother and sister and mother." Jesus was making a point and did not hate his brother or mother. What a lunatic to say the bible says this.

3. Third, Jesus demands a life of absolute non-violence. I definitely don’t get that from the scripture presented.

4. Fourth, Jesus demands complete emotional control. Matthew 5:48; “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Is this no more than a request to follow the Ten Commandments? What emotions would one feel about John 11:35; Jesus wept. Philippians 4:8; I am sure there are some emotions there, too.

Obviously, the scriptures must be taken in context and also the historical perspective in the Old Testament can share a light on God’s thoughts. I may be wrong on my thoughts on this scripture but I believe my thoughts are more consistent with most Christian doctrine. So, if someone wants to live in poverty (hopefully, they give up the internet) as long as they are working and not causing any fights and loving people which is an emotion to me, then I am OK with that. But who cares what I am OK with; I am not the judge. Besides I always fall back on John 3:16; everything else is fruit on the tree of life.
