    See, that's the thing. The whole New Testament, and in particular the Gospels—you know, the heart & soul of the Christian faith—are very specific on this precise question.

    We are indeed our brothers' keepers. That is exactly what was unique about Christ's teaching: that we are individually and collectively responsible for the care and well being of our neighbors. He commands us to love thy neighbor as thyself.

    Hence, Rick Warren is a big fat fraud. A huckster who has built a huge megachurch empire on the backs of the suckers who believe his bilge, even as he explicitly denies the very teachings of the Christ he claims to venerate.

      Ahem, you might find a bit of that kind of thing in the old testament too.  A jew or muslim or buddhist here or there might venture thoughts along those lines.  Maybe even an atheist
