This has nothing to do with Jesus saying to people to live like birds and not care about what they will eat and not care about their future, these are just your stupid wishful thinking ramblings.
So stop trolling.

its about being in the service of God and trusting him to provide like he does for the birds. for instance being a bible camp consular a few weeks over the summer, for a while then your job says no one is to take their vacation over summer months. in this instance to serve God and not worry about one's well being/livily hood like the bird do.. is to continue your work at the bible camp every summer like you always had and let God worry about this job or finding you another one.

By what other method does an honest person teach by? why would i try and teach something i have not practiced myself? and if i practiced what i am preaching how then am i not allow to share examples of everything i do that supports what i am teaching?

Yeah, "let God find you a job" like all the birds he leaves starving.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Yes, we know, you're a fruit.  That's exactly what I just said, isn't it?  That you claim to be a product of the religion you describe.

Go forth and tell everyone all about it! What could possibly go wrong?

In the beginning, people were like birds.  The garden provided all as God planned.  Also, as God planned, people couldn't resist doing what God told them not to do.  They failed in the way they were created to fail.  The garden died, and people had to fend for themselves from then on, except for times when God showed them grace or fury, depending on his mood.

Jesus would have known that if he wasn't a fictional character.

And continued in the second post where it came to "God will find you a job just like he starves the birds because it all doesn't matter since you will die anyway and this life doesn't matter" - does it make sense? -No, but it shows that Christianity is a death cult.

Honestly?  I think it will trend the opposite direction.  You're uniquely bad at spreading your faith. Supposing that it were all true, your delivery would guarantee souls to hell that might otherwise find salvation. It's something to think about.

how doesn't it make sense? like with the birds food is always there. other wise they would have all died out some time ago.. it just not may be where you are at now. same with the job. perhaps the job you have now is starving you spiritually but feeding you physically. if you trust God and follow his direction and are willing to move/follow god where he leads you will be fed. it is the birds who will not migrate that will die when a regions food supply is depleted.

There are migratory birds that just decide not to go?  They make up their own minds?
