I hope you are not on staff at Whitworth University as your post reflects a lot of things, but certainly not “rigorous intellectual inquiry.”
“Since 1890, Whitworth has held fast to its founding mission of providing “an education of mind and heart” through rigorous intellectual inquiry guided by dedicated Christian scholars.”
Yes, it is “obvious” people at Sound Doctrine Church have to buy clothes and food. That is possible because every member of Sound Doctrine Church has their own money, personal possessions, and bank accounts. In fact, I preach what Paul instructed–that everyone is to handle their own money and give freely from their hearts as God wills. You can read it yourself in 2 Corinthians 8:3-5.
Nobody in the Salt Shaker bookstore said anything to remotely suggest the kind of falsity you posted conveniently only a few days after Mr. Fraser’s arrest. Feel free, if you have not already, to contact Detective McCall of the Enumclaw Police Department. Since the Enumclaw Police Department only has one detective, Detective McCall is allowed to play good-cop, bad-cop in this case. He is in charge of spreading such personally damaging slander in an official manner and, along with others, has been doing so for quite some time. Strange how charges come first, then “facts” seem to lead. Of course Detective McCall is giving the Prosecution exactly the style of cases they enjoy.
In the meantime you have the sinful pleasure of knowing you are supporting your opinions of the Bible by condemning an innocent man to possible life in prison. Such fruits speak more of Judas than Jesus. After all, Judas felt Jesus did not care enough for the poor and became so upset that he went out and had Jesus arrested.
(Mark 14:10) Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, “Why this waste of perfume?…” Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.
Truth: Everyone at Sound Doctrine Church controls their money and owns their worldly possessions.
