Jesus vs. Ghandi: SUL Grudge Match on 07/17/2009 16:21:01 MDT Print View

I don't know about that Jesus guy, but that "Jesus was SUL" thread got me thinking: Ghandi's minimalism probably qualifies as SUL.

This is a photo of everything he owned on the day he died:

No contest, Jesus wins hands down.

Come the first serious river crossing, Jesus will just walk straight over. And Gandhi?

Come dinner time, Jesus will multiply bread and fish -- and change water into fine wine. And Gandhi?

And at His death, Jesus also had few possessions -- his cloak was confiscated and betted over by the Romans -- and he certainly didn't have eyeglasses. :)

The refs have conferred, and they agree: Jesus has been DQed for cheating.

Ghandi wins!

Ghandi had some interesting looking shoes though.

He made those himself, Joe. Ghandi was fully MYOG.

Gandhi will practice civil disobedience and walk the Path of Least Resistance.

Come dinner time, Jesus will multiply bread and fish -- and change water into fine wine. And Gandhi?

Gandhi? He'll simply not eat! He'll fast.

And at His death, Jesus also had few possessions -- his cloak was confiscated and betted over by the Romans -- and he certainly didn't have eyeglasses. :)

I think it is unfair to compare someone who has the Power of Healing and no worries about getting bad vision! Gandhi had to deal with reality. They both believed in reincarnation, though.

Not many Christians (now) would agree with that. Maybe resurrection ?

Ghandi, poor? on 07/19/2009 05:30:27 MDT Print View

There's a famous quote by one of Ghandi's English liberal sponsors along the lines of how it cost a fortune to keep him (Ghandi) in poverty.

Still, a hero.

cheers,

Re: Jesus vs. Ghandi: SUL Grudge Match -- Heaven's FAQ? on 08/14/2009 19:37:24 MDT Print View

I hope in 100 years when I die from extreme old age that there is a FAQ in Heaven that explains how Jesus hiked in the desert and mountains for 40 days. What was his gear list? The Bible says he was human as well as divine so he must have had a gear list. I don't recall Gandhi ever doing such long thru hikes.

What? This is a ridiculous scenario, not to mention unfair. Jesus is magic where Gandhi is a mere mortal. Besides you posted a verses scenario without naming the terms of the challenge.

When asked what he thought of western civilisation, Ghandi replied that he thought "It would be a very good idea."

Any witty quips from J.C?

It's a tough comparison because Ghandi's daily life is much better documented than that of Christs thanks to the media and technology.

Jesus did get to share equipment since he was normally with at least 12 other people.

And considering who we're talking about should it really be a "grudge match?"

I think this thread has lost some of its original context. When I started it, there was another ridiculous thread stating (apparently in total seriousness) that Jesus had been the first SUL hiker. I beleive that the bible had been cited as proof.

It was more than I could take.

Everyone knows that Otzi was SUL waaaaaay before Jesus was a figment of anyone's imagination.
