---The Good Samaritan by Jesus.

---I say by Jesus because in legal discussions in the USA there were law professors discussing the Bad Samaritan and their rights.

---Who are the Bad Samaritans? The Priest and Levite passed by saw the injuries and pain but kept moving.

---Ellen White said that the very persons whom He was talking about, were standing in the audience.

---It was not a fake story. It was based on real events.

---So professor Anthony d’ Amato in 2010 wrote about “phony accidents” where a concerned driver stopped to help and got robbed of his car trying to help.

---So what do people think in the digi-modernism about it? Should the Samaritan be good and help or bad and bypass?

---People and lawyers are divided. Some courts even said: No one can be forced to do anything.

---There was a case of a woman who was beaten and cut very badly by a group of persons and the apartment people just watched from their balconies not doing anything.

---The court decided: They do not have to do anything. Hello.

---Do Jesus say that you have to stop? No. But he mentioned that someone whom you will not expect to do it, stopped.

---Could he be robbed? Yes.

---In the State of Vermont they have ruled that you have to stop when there is an accident.

---But what about “phony robbing?” Amato said that maybe this rule is good because the robbers will be busy stealing when other cars also stop to ask what is going on and the robbers will flee.

---It was an unusual Good Samaritan in Jesus’ event. He brought him to an Inn and also paid costs for his care.

---Another researcher Laura Valentini wrote in 2015 an article on Justice that should include Samaritism in Social situations of disaster.

---She said that Hurrican Sandy in 2012 destroyed the East Coast.

---Many Good Samaritans helped people who were injured and people who needed housing they built with materials for them a place to stay in.

---Afterwards they wanted to claim money and the courts decided that those who are injured and help were good Samaritans that cannot get compensation for their costs helping bodily injuries.

---In the case of materials used to build places to stay in, they can get compensation for their Samaritan help.

---No said Valentini, this is a double standard. She said they should both be freely given except if the victims are bad people.

---But, Jesus did not create a new law for the universe. He was the Good Samaritan himself.

---He did not ask whether Satan will rob Him when He came to save us.

---Satan was constantly trying to destroy Christ and He was constantly in trouble.

---Did Jesus left earth and went back to safety of heaven? No. He met Satan on his own terms.

---Satan tempted Christ in the desert. Christ countered Him with scriptural truths of which the content was correct.

---So should I stop my car when there was an accident? Wait to see other cars coming and stop them also and then walk together to the scene. Correct?

---Jesus asks us to be freely out of our own choice willing to be a Good Samaritan and that is what He was. Nice Right?

---Do you feel you want to help people but do not know what you should do? Call your nearest Adventist pastor and tell him of your willingness to be a Good Samaritan. He will help you. Is your phone out? When? Now.
