    Man, thats an interesting interpretation.

    Jesus speaks all throughout the NT about feeding and caring for the poor, and loving one anther. Respect your interpretation of that passage, but gotta disagree with you.

    LC what is that Bible version? Never heard it expressed like that.

    Are you referring to the Matthew 26 verse?

    It's because the world is a la carte and that passage is used quite often.

    LC, I understand that, and I think there's merit to your point. However, I don't follow the Matthew 26:6-11 reference, because I don't see how these works of art glorify God the way someone personally annointing the Christ did.

    Maybe it's the idea of displaying the paintings for the glory of God (like putting oil on Jesus' feet?) instead of selling them and giving the money to the poor?

    Look up "Christian Zionism." I learned of it in history class regarding post WW2 activities, and 70 years isn't long compared to the 7th century Israel fall to the Arabs to the 1948 creation of Israel.

    I hear ya and fair enough…..you ole heathen :smile1:. Just kidding.
    I’ll just wrap up with saying many of the great cathedrals in Europe were built with donations and labor from the poor who wanted to build monuments to God’s goodness. The Vatican does not control enormous wealth, liquid wealth anyway, and its annual operating budget has been compared to that of a large archdiocese like that of Chicago.

    The Catholic Church is still one of the most giving institutions on earth running and supporting tons of charities, relief organizations, hospitals, and other enterprises at great cost to the Church. Peace :hookem:

    We are all welcome to sell our boats, sports cars, lake houses, etc and give it to the poor.

    The nuns running Catholic hospitals are sharp business folks. :)

    LC, you described very well the Protestant doctrine of sanctification. So I agree with you. Heb 12:9-12 also calls it discipline.

    Not to mention meaner than rattle snakes. Some people fear clowns….I fear 12 inch rulers.

    I’ll be honest, I’m not sure. I have a binder, yes a Tom Herman type binder lol, I put together of go to scripture versus and sorted by by, for example - purgatory, salvation, etc but I didn’t include version. I should start adding that, but I’ll go through my Bibles and try to get that for you.

    That’s why I asked LC. There are so many versions out there. Some of which I cannot appreciate, although I cannot remember which they were - well except Gideon’s, I wasn’t fond of that one when I read a bit of it once.
