something that has been bothering me

I think I read this while looking at the Shane Claiborne thing last night, but it has stuck with me while other things he said/wrote fell away…

To paraphrase: “…if you steal a poor man’s coat, you are a thief.  But if you have two coats, and the poor man has no coat, and you dont give him one of your coats, what are you then…?”

Brings the: “love, and do as you will…” philosophy into sharp relief.

I’ve got more than two coats.
