5:42 Thus much for your behaviour toward the violent. As for those who use milder methods, Give to him that asketh thee - Give and lend to any so far, (but no further, for God never contradicts himself) as is consistent with thy engagements to thy creditors, thy family, and the household of faith. #Luke 6:30|.
Mt 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee. Palestine swarmed with blind, lepers, and maimed, who were dependent on charity. Turn not thou away. The Lord does not bid to give to "every" one, not to loan to every one, for this would not be a blessing, but to have a spirit that will be ready to do so whenever it is right.

Is there anyone at all who follows the dictates of Matthew 5 42? Even Christians who believe that all the statements of Jesus are the inerrant word of God do not even try to follow it they do not believe it they claim it doesn 't mean what it appears to mean.
