Jesus over Poor people


Sami Zaatari




Christians often like to complain about some certain privileges the prophet Muhammad used to receive, they claim that this is wrong and shouldn't happen. Off course as usual they never provide a basis for such arguments, just an appeal to emotion.


Let us now turn the tables on their Lord Jesus, who himself demanded special and unique treatment, we read:


And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. (Mark 14:3-8)


Talk about special treatment! This lady comes up to Jesus and poured an ointment on Jesus' head, the disciples rightfully got very angry because this could have been sold for good money, and the money could have been used to benefit the poor. But what is Jesus' reaction? He says it's good, because the poor will always be there, however so he won't, so basically he gets more special treatment than the poor people!


So what if the poor will always be there? Does it mean we should stop helping them just because they will forever be there? Does it mean that we should stop helping the poor people and give the benefits to other people who aren't poor?


Secondly, this incident proves that Jesus is not God. Notice he says he will not always be with the disciples, why is that? He is God right? God is always with us, he is not with us on Saturday and then leaves us on Sunday, he is ALWAYS with us. The fact that Jesus tells them he will not always be with them proves he is not God, and is a mere man, a prophet, who will be taken away soon, and will not be with them.


Off course Christians won't mind this story; they will say they will happily give everything to Jesus if he demanded it, even if those things could benefit poor people!  Which off course proves their lovely good ole hypocrisy. I thought special treatment was wrong? Oh well, when you are a hypocrite you will say anything to suit yourself.


And Allah Knows Best!
