enter. no offense man, but those who get applause for what they've done here on earth...that is their reward.
when you give, do so in secret. that way only the father above knows, and the father, who sees all, will reward you.
that's in matthew. and it's common sense...don't brag about your charity.
love ya bro. no offense intended.

There are lots of charities (from caritas=charity=love). They are perpetrating genocide in Tibet. I've given there. Every year part of my paycheck goes to the United Way, in which we can stipulate where to direct the money - homeless, neglected kids, etc. I used to give to prevent porpoises from being drowned in tuna nets, and to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), and to GreenPeace. Pick an area that could use 'green energy,' and put some there - pick an area of concern in our country to elsewhere. You like Ram Dass - he started the SEVA Foundation to give cataract surgeries to people of mountainous regions like Nepal and Peru who suffer the ultraviolet damage to their eyes because of the thin air passing UV. Give blood if you want to.

PETA stands for that?

I thought it was "People Eating Tasty Animals".

I want my money back!  :grin:

I give on a monthly basis to the Childrens Make a wish network....LOVE  :smile: kids and it makes me feel good to know I am helping make a dream for a dying child come true....

We are not perfect but pursue peace and helping our fellow brothers and sisters that need our helping hand...

my money goes back into me. if you want to make a difference get off your ass and act locally... think globablly, as the hippies quipped. giving money to charity is just a feel good excuse for not being more invovled in your own world.

My cat's name is Pita. Everyone goes "Ahh, how cute; like pita bread?"

And I say "No. It stands for Pain In The Ass."

I'm not sure on that, but the Bible says to pray in secret, yet mainstream Christianity wants to go against the Book and encourage public prayer in schools.

What a coincidence! That is exactly the acronym I gave to my Lady's daughter as a nickname! (She's in college and old enough to handle it).

"Jesus advised us to pray both in private and in public with those who also believe in the Lord. That's why the Lord's Prayer starts out, "Our Father". Prayer is intended for both those in the midst of many people and those sitting in the privacy of there own room."

This is incorrect. The pronoun "our" can easily refering to God when we are praying in private as well. Please cite the Scripture where Jesus tells us to pray in public.

Cheers,

"...mainstream Christianity wants to go against the Book and encourage public prayer in schools."

An excellent point. Sounds like inculcating to me. Don't the schools have enough of that? It is not the business of the public education system to teach any kind of morality. They, more than any other institution I can think of, are decidely unqualified.

Cheers,

I buy mushrooms. Is that like giving financially to a spiritual cause?

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

what jesus is trying to say is...don't pray in public for attention. just pray when you feel moved to do so, and make sure it's sincere.

Peace and Love to all!
