socialist Bible verse of the day: Luke 3:11

"He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise." —Luke 3:11 (King James Version)

Brother Will says: That's John the Baptist speaking. "Meat" in King James' day just meant food. I like the simplicity of the New Living Translation:
John replied, "If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry."
How any rich person can claim to be a Baptist, I'll never understand.
