    2 Thessalonians 3:10. There's pretty much a consensus that Paul wrote 1 Thessalonians. 2 Thessalonians 2:1 implies that Paul wrote that letter as well (some scholars say he didn't).

    Here's what Jesus said his Dad would say about hunger and immigration and welfare and health care (Matthew 25:41-46):

    25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
    25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
    25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
    25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?   
    25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
    25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
    So SuzyQToo, who do you follow? Jesus or Paul?
