No Meat?

A Bone for the Dogs

The Children's Bread shouldn't go to the dogs!
So a Bone-of-Contention's been thrown..
Religious factions all over the world
are claiming it now for their own.

The Gentiles are fighting over the bone,
and from place to place it gets carried,
but they haven't got all the meat off this bone,
and it's a bone that won't stay buried!


This speaks of the Bible and how we're still arguing over it after 2,000 years. "But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet (sic) to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs". Mk7:27
Notice how she wasn't offended at being called a dog, but kept her focus on healing for her daughter!

The Apostle Paul spoke of going from milk to meat -- "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 1Cor3:1-3 KJV

Did they ever get any 'meat', do you suppose?
