Wow... a "thoughts and prayers, but F you anyway" article.
Jesus was talking to some of the self-righteous hypocrite Jewish priests of his day, when a lawyer, who else, tried to trap him.... before you hear the story, know that the Samaritans were considered by the Jews to be the lowest scum on earth; the minority low-life immigrant poor of their society.
"And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
He said to him, "What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?"
So he answered and said, " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and your neighbor as yourself.' "
And He said to him, "You have answered rightly; do this and you will live."
But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Then Jesus answered and said: "A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side.
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.'
So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?"
And he said, "He who showed mercy on him."
Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
He might as well have slapped his audience in the face; shaming them that a lowly Samaritan was a more righteous man than they.
He answered the question of "who is my neighbor".... anyone in need.
And people who try to tell you that that only applies to how individuals treat individuals and couldn't possibly have anything to do with how their country treats it's citizens or anyone else.... is just another self-righteous hypocrite.
