I have a very dear friend, who has fallen on hard times. Her job vanished, and even after looking for a new one, things still aren’t going well for her. She has one but it’s a case of too late to keep her above water.
Now, this isn’t being said to garner pity, or asking for a hand out, hand up, but to rant.
How DARE a self righteous relative of hers make fun of her. How dare he use re- written by his preacher passages in the bible meant to insult President Obama as his excuse for such piss poor behavior. I’m betting this asshole dislocates his own shoulder patting himself on the back as to how wonderful he is, totally forgetting that “But for the grace of God go I.” when it comes to someone in dire straights.
What did (the historical) Jesus say about taking care of family?
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
So, relative of my friend, suck it up, because according to your OWN holy writings, you have denied your own faith, and are worse than an unbeliever.
