Go flood the youtube comments with your ignorant opinions. Or are videos more acceptable than pictures? you guys are such a joke and it's not even funny.


Video, picture, doesn't matter. Doing a "good deed" then showing it off to people simply means you're doing it to make yourself look good, not out of the goodness of your heart. Simple as that. I've clearly upset you if you resorted to calling my comment ignorant, but hey, sometimes the truth hurts.

He did a good thing, and I do not see this as flaunting at all. Instead, his post is asking " what good things have you done today, post it here."
So, those of you looking for intent, your'e missing the point.

it is ignorant to think you know what this guy really feels...I will applaud the good acts and leave the intentions to God. I mean, shouldn't we be happy when others do good things? it could be a good example for other people regardless of the intention behind the act. At least you're honest, though.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






And this is all I said to you "Here you are judging a man (saying "probably wasn't your intent" doesn't cut it because you thought it was his intent)"

and BOOM the guy gets offended, hence all these long messages!!!


1.I'm not offended by you in the least. I just dislike people who use the Bible to make others feel guilty and christians hate the word "judgement" when it is aimed at them. Just say what you really wanted to say instead of beating around the bush with Bible quotes.

2.You repeated "probably" over and over again.

3.Usually, when people say things like "Not trying to flame, hate or rain on the parade, but, I just don't dig it with the picture and all showing yourself." it is actually what they are doing (hating, flaming and after the but clearly shows your real opinion about all this, you don't really dig it!)

As for the "I don't buy it" part, where this all came from??


The Bible clearly says:


"Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”

"Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge"


“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye."


And this one made me go


Wait....where did I call you a 'hypocrite'? WHERE? lol oh because you were judging his actions? what's so bad about the word "judgement"? you would be a hypocrite if you also were doing the same thing as him AND calling him out at the same time. Just because I said that you were judging him doesn't mean you were a hypocrite or that I am one. I don't think I'm one because I'm not saying nor do I think that what he did was just to make himself feel/look good. That you called him a hypocrite is another thing...you don't have to use the exact word to mean it like that: but, I just don't dig it with the picture and all showing yourself. the question is "what you don't dig?". I think we all know it....as for me, I just think you are a pretentious man of God.

As for the comment about "no one is perfect", it is true...and it means just that. Anything else it is just your mind being carried away by your anger or whatever it is that makes you look more into my comments than what I really meant.


(Job 15:14-16)What [is] man, that he should be clean? and [he which is] born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.
How much more abominable and filthy [is] man, which drinketh iniquity like water?.

(Prov. 20:9)Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

(Jer 13:23)Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? [then] may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.


The only perfect is Jesus or God. of course that's not an excuse to sin IF you really believe in God.


This is getting out of hand. Please take a breath and go read your Bible since I'm pretty sure you're ticked off not all christians are like you, I was one before and I know many wonderful people who keep their cool when they are shown the "do not judge" verse.




The point is, there is no sin here to call out. if he was doing something really bad like beating up a homeless guy, I would be on your side because you're admonishing your "brother" and calling out his sin. And this is the only reason why I said "you're judging a man here" because I saw it ironic and unbelievable that you would call someone out just because they were HELPING a person. Whatever your "what ifs" were should have stayed in your mind because you are not sure (you clearly said "probably") if he did it just to feel good. Or at least be honest like the rest who do believe he did it to show off without saying "probably".

I'm a writer and have been writing since I was a kid. Do you know what happens when you write for long periods of time? You get fast. And the faster you type, the more you write. So, while you're telling me that I'm writing you long comments because I'm angry, I think you're silly. Because I have longer comments than these on THIS site alone about topics ranging from red flags to avoid bad relationships, to the content of Hunter X Hunter. Yet, you know enough about me, about humanity in general, to know that this paragraph is10 minutes of me slowly typing in pissed off anger, when in actually it's 45 seconds of passing thought with no emotional attachment?

That is only the beginning of the incorrectness found in your arrogant assumptions.

You assume that I use the word "probably" because I don't want to come off as judgmental. To whom exactly? "When people say "probably" they really mean what they said, but are beating around the bush?" And exactly how many people, of the 7 billion on this planet, have you met to make that determination? You will die without knowing 700 people well enough to read into what they really mean when they say something. And yet, you're full enough of yourself to think you know what 7,000,000,000 people mean, so that you can just know when you meet someone you've never met before, like myself, what I mean By comment length? You don't even know everything about the people sleeping next door from where ever you are, but you're going to tell me about me? Are you serious?

Let me tell you why I said: "Probably". It's not because I give two craps about being judged as a hater by you, or anyone else here. When this debate comes to its finale, I will remember you and what you said for as long as it takes me to open the next episode of anime. I do not care what you think. In truth, the only reason I remembered we were even having this discussion is because the Notification bar said "1". Otherwise, I would've forgotten already.

I said "probably" because while it's a gloryhound move to put your pic up, I DON'T KNOW where his heart was at. And I'm not like you. I don't assume to know people who I don't know at all. You don't know me well enough to assume that I would EVER mince my words for anyone. I don't say "probably" unless I mean "probably". I lost an entire cadre of people extremely close to me, because I didn't believe that everyone who wasn't a certain denomination was going to hell. It practically made me a heretic in their eyes. If I didn't mince words with the only pastor I ever sat under, with the woman I thought I would marry, and the men I considered my best friends and confidants, who do you think you are, that I would beat around the bush for you? You're not that important. You're merely some anonymous woman sitting behind a keyboard somewhere in the world. Why in the world do you think you would matter enough for me to change who I am to get your meaningless positive impression of me?

Now, I could go into the nooks and crannies of your reply. I could talk about how you're trying to sound smart by throwing out words like "Pretentious" when you actually mean "Self-Righteous". I could talk about how you use John 7:24 about not judging by appearances, but judging with a right judgment. And how using that scripture is clearly telling us that we DO need to make judgments, not according to the outside of a man, but the inner workings of a man; making a right judgment. (Why use that when your whole argument is that we're not supposed to judge at all?)

But, honestly, I feel it's a waste of time. Because I think you're too arrogant to even listen. You think you know it all, when you know little to nothing about what you're talking about, because you don't have proper study under your belt. If anything would irritate me, it's that someone who doesn't even believe, would presume to think they could just Google search scriptures and know the complexities of real study of the Scriptures and exegesis of the text. It's preposterous beyond measure to compare reprimand with judgment. It's shows a grievous misunderstanding of core tenants of the faith, such as conviction vs. condemnation. If Christians really were to behave like you wish, and not say anything, the Gospel would never be spread. You are actually delving into letters that are entirely comprised of the apostles "judging" (by your standards), the early church for missing the mark on numerous teachings, to get the very scriptures you're quoting. That's what the vast majority of the New Testament IS. Letters from the apostles being sent out to correct errant behavior within the church, from glory seeking and gluttony, to gossiping and vain arguments over genealogies.

If I were to just flat out assume that the OP was a Christian and that he was doing this strictly for the glory, if I were to just say directly: "OP, I KNOW you're seeking your own glory and that's something you shouldn't do. God should get the glory and if you keep acting this way, you'll get no reward from the Lord, you phony Christian!" If I were to say it EXACTLY like that, it would be the exact same thing that most of the writings of the New Testament is directing at various individuals in the early church. Just go and read the very short book of Jude in the New Testament and then tell me about judging the actions of others.

(I'm doing it, anyway.) I'm going to stop. Because you don't seem to be the kind of individual who even listens to others. And nothing is a greater testament to that than the fact that the tail end of a message you write says: "The point is there's no sin to be called out" in response to a message that says: "I don't think the guy sinned. I don't think the guy did anything wrong, because I don't know what the intent behind the pic was.". This is the written version of one those arguments where you're not listening, you're just waiting for your turn to talk.

So, if you want to think I'm judging the guy? KYO.
If you want to think you can read into me, when you have no clue who I am? KYO.
If you want to think I'm angry, or so insecure that I need to beat around the bush on anonymous forums? KYO.
If you want to live a life where you can never tell anyone they've done something wrong, or you're judging them? KYO.

Sometimes "Probably" just means "Probably" and long comments are just long comments. And if it floats your boat to make up meaning beyond that? Really? It's not my problem.

It feels good to do stuff like that from time to time. That's the reason I do it, still, that doesn't change the fact that it's a good thing to do. Bravo.

Another Bravo! Actually, Especially when it is cold, I carry a few gift certificates for handout when somebody says they need a meal. Sadly, it is half because of distrust, but if a person truely in need, having ten bucks for a hot coffee and a more normal meal is a good hand. And of course, spare change goes into the charity boxes.

In the talk of panhandlers, the one unfortunate truth is that around here, there are "professional" panhandlers who actually make their living off of it and in no way bad off. I remember once, I saw a "regular" leave the boulevard he was standing on, turn down an alley, then pull an I-pod out of his pocket. At that time, even I didn't have an mp3. Sadly, that day truely jaded me.

But I do still give money to the good buskers. If somebody is outside, playing quality music (there is an old man who is regularly downtown, even when cold that plays a mean violin) I will toss them money for sure. They are working for it, so they can spend how they see fit.

You did. A great job XD

Sorry, I won't read your comment. I have no idea what you said and I refuse to continue this absurdity because I said everything I had to say. Let's just agree that what the OP did was a good deed...or disagree if you want. Just think before you write next time though. Bye.

i don't read a book without pictures, still a good deed picture or not

Yeah, picture or not, a good deed is a good deed.

My brother loves to talk with homeless people because he thinks they're very humble. We both used to work at a cafeteria and we gave them free food (paid by ourselves ). I prefer to give out food or some clothing before giving them money...but when I'm in a rush I give them some money to those I know they won't use it for drugs.

I actually made a friend who lives on the streets. He was the one who read me the Bible and gave me lessons. He doesn't belong to any religion since God has no religion. He likes being homeless and preaches every day. Christian /religious people should learn more about homeless people because of their humility and true kindness.

Anyways, I invited him to my home for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New year's. I also donate to the charity for animals ASPCA
....that's all...I'm just a poor College student so I can't donate to other organizations.

I just want to put it out there, not trying to start anything but just putting it out there.... You don't have to be religious to be good even though it is a tenet of many religions, you don't have to BE religious to be a nice person...

I'm an atheist and I do good stuff for others all the time. I give to a charity once a month here in Canada, it's only 5 bucks but it's something. When I was in Ireland I used to have a 5 euro auto-donate to oxfam and trocaire once a month, charities for poor families and kids in Africa respectively. Just last month I bought a homeless couple a huge pizza with about 6 toppings on it. I help out all my friends whenever they need help, be it emotional, financial or whatever. I get and hold the door for people whenever the situation arises. If a woman is coming down the sidewalk with a pram I will jump in to that snowbank so she can pass comfortably. (curse you, Canada!) Similarly, (I smoke) if I see a woman with kids walking down the same path as me I will get out of the way, cross the road if need be, just so that her kids won't have to smell or see me ingesting my stupid poison.

Now do I get a feel good hormone release for doing these things? Of course, we're human beings, we're social creatures, it's hardwired into our brains that helping one another is good for us and for the species as a whole. Is that the reason I do it? Of course not... I've been in bad places, I've had a crazy life, I know what it's like to have nothing and be going nowhere and I also know what it's like when someone comes out of the blue and gives you that helping hand... It's surprising and uplifting. But let's not forget that we are human and it doesn't matter WHY you are kind to others, it only matters that you ARE kind to others...

Now you should all watch this video and feel good about your fellow man!! Everyone needs to see this video it's so true and uplifting and powerful and it's also one of the only times you get the hear the genius Charlie Chaplin speak and wow does he have a good voice.

Here is the video. Enjoy!

I agree. I'm a Christian, but I have friends and family from various walks of life, Atheists, Muslims, Jews, Homosexuals, etc... And some people who don't believe in Jesus are some of the kindest people I've met. And while we may not agree on the path to salvation (Obviously, I believe it's Jesus), that doesn't stop us from being able to work together and show love to others and one another.
