Sweet! Off the hook!
"And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
Matt 10.42

Looks like my Hell fire and damnation is well and truly sorted. Cups of cold water I can certainly do.

Who are the "these little ones who are my disciple"?

Da fuq, jesus could refrigerate water as well.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

However, we must assume, based on his taking such a long time to get around to his second coming, that he is also a lazy shit and just can't be bothered.

Hmmm. Nice spotting. I think well water would be pretty cold but who the fuck can be bothered buggerising around at the well all day hoping some random Christian who were few and far between, might pass by just so you could give them some cold water. Those women had stuff to do.

I think he means his peeps. In a broader interpretation I would take it to mean anyone who is fully onboard with Jesus. It would be a bit mean to just limit it to the small number of people he encountered over 3 years in the back of beyond and leave the rest hanging. Anyway I have given a metric fuck ton of good shit to his followers so by definition I am sorted.

RE: Sweet! Off the hook!
I'm going to use the typical go-to religious response here and say ... (wait for it)

It's taken out of context.

That's right. Think about it. Jesus lived in a sandy, dusty hot part of the world and so a nice cold cup of water is really quite significant, especially as people did not generally bring china tea cups around with them but used bladders and buckets to contain luke warm water.

So you need to do the equivalent, like provide a nice steaming cup of earl grey tea to an eskimo in a snow blizzard or a meal balanced with vitamins to a first year student.

The quote is "even a cup of cold water". The 'even' corresponds to the cold water, not the cup. The cup is not negotiable. All charity needs to be delivered in a cup.

I'm with Mathilda on this one.

Yep, I would say it's about hospitality. Like having your feet washed (very refreshing) when a guest steps in. During that time, the reputation of your house built a person's a name or destroyed it.

We regularly dump buckets of cold water on idiots like D-Wreck and omegapup. We ALL get a free pass.
