    So many people of the world give generously to charities?

    According to U K Governnent figures www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk (some extracts)

    "A lot more of us donate money. From the spare change we drop into collecting tins, through regular donations tofavourite charities, to one-off national events like Red Nose Day and the unprecedented outpouring of support for the victims of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, we collectively give over £7 billion every year......................"

    "Between two-thirds and three-quarters of us regularly give to charity, donating over £7 billion pounds a year..........."

    " And despite outstanding acts of individual philanthropy, the poorest in society continue to give a greater proportion of their income to charity than the rich..........".

    "The average monthly donation in 2003 was £12.30, marginally lower than the level in 2002 but nearly 30 per cent higher than in 1997."

    No doubt you can add some more "How comes????"

    You know the J-dubs can create an answer for ANYTHING. If I were a J-dub I'd say something like this:

    The world's charities only provide a temporary solution to this world's problems. The increase in donations to such charities shows that the world is interested in keeping itself going.

    Jesus Christ said "Let the dead bury their dead. You, though, go proclaim the Kingdom of God". So Jesus gave us a proper, balanced viewpoint of helpfulness towards elements of the world.

    The only real, long-term solution to mankind's problems is God's Kingdom, and not any worldly charity.

    (I'll stop now, this theocratic-speak is starting to make me ill. )

    I'll write you about this subject sometime, BB.

    How come I have had more sympathy for worldly people, at that as an apostate, than I ever did as a witless?

    It's Satan's world, but Jesus is ruling right? Or are all governments are under Jehovah's authority? Or Satan's. Who can tell the difference anyway? One fairy tale is as good as another.
