Hi steve!
Point Five was great: I lost a few acquaintances over it, but heck that point was worth it!
Cracked me up, and the proverbial wisdom used was irrefutable! hehehe... even presuppositionalists would have to concede, why the heck ain't Judas a saint?!?!

Nahh, I gotta side with Jesus on #3, on these points (which are really all the same point):

1) That 300 pieces of silver, or however much that ointment could have been sold for, might have helped someone for a short while, but it would not have made any genuine dent in poverty.

2) Yeah, it's always easiest to complain that the other guy isn't doing enough for the poor, isn't it? That is the more direct, snarky way of saying what Jesus did: "The poor will be with us always, and you may help them any time you want."

3) That bit about "the poor will be with us always" is also a callback to the Old Testament, where it was said that, if the Jewish people keep to the commandments, there will be no more poor.

Those three points all converge on one reality: poverty wasn't something Jesus could fix (given what we know about his set of super powers); poverty has to be fixed by society. Putting it all on Jesus's head because he indulged in a creature comfort is not only grossly unfair, but a shirking of one's own duties.

And just for laughs, I'll make one more barely related point:

4) Jesus knew he was going to die in a few days. You try being in his sandals with that awareness -- that whatever knowledge he might have of the afterlife, his body was still going to be tortured to death. The guy wanted to experience some small measure of physical joy before suffering an agonizing death that we can barely even imagine ... my god what a selfish selfish hypocrite.
