Hungry Are Ya? Go Shoplift!

“A British Anglican priest is facing criticism following a controversial sermon in which he advised his congregation to shoplift, providing the thievery takes place at large chain stores.
Rev. Tim Jones, 41, told his followers stealing from such stores is sometimes the best option for the poor. He said it is better for people to steal than resort to prostitution, mugging or burglary.”

Here’s an idea, how about GIVING to the poor? Isn’t that what “Christianity” is all about??
“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” James 2:14-17
Just how lazy has this priest become in his “ministry”, telling the poor to shoplift, when he has a nice, juicy, fat meal every evening?? And the shoplifting guidelines? Too obvious… as long as they don’t stop past HIS home…to eat or steal.
Two words…DEAD.   FAITH.
