Very sweet. I really believe it costs us nothing to be kind .... and it makes all the difference in the world to those who need a boost of any type to make it through the day.

This is the parable of the Good Samaritan (quoted below) in real time.

Luke 10:25-37

An expert in Torah stood up to try and trap Jesus by asking: “Rabbi, what should I do to obtain eternal life?” Jesus replied “What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?” The Torah expert answered, “You are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your understanding; and you are to love your neighbor as yourself.”  

“That’s the right answer,” Jesus said. “Do this, and you will have life.”

But the man, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my ‘neighbor’?”  

Taking up the question, Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him naked and beat him up, then went off, leaving him half dead.  By coincidence, a cohen priest was going down on that road; but when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levi who reached the place and saw him also passed by on the other side.

“But a man from Samaria who was traveling came upon him; and when he saw him, he was moved with compassion. So he went up to him, put oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them. Then he set him on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day, he took out two days’ wages, gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Look after him; and if you spend more than this, I’ll pay you back when I return.’

Jesus then asked the Torah expert: "Of these three, which one seems to you to have become the ‘neighbor’ of the man who fell among robbers?”  The Torah expert answered, “The one who showed mercy toward him.”

Jesus said to him, “You go and do as he did."

Great comments all, and moving and inspiring video, fake or real. (Just kidding! I am not yet that cynical, and still have tears at this kind gesture.) The Good Samaritan, and Jesus's prayer for Gods's Kingdom on earth, is what these sweet youths exemplify to me. I just wish that I had the funding to be able to send these talented German kids to be heard by BiBi SatanYahoo (one of Noor's funny phrases).

Would BiBi weep at this sweet, simple kindness shown in this video? Does he weep alone himself at the slaughter and horror he has committed? Does BiBi weep? I hope he does, but I think not, which really makes him satanic.
