Favorite quiz question Question for 20 pts. Statement and 2 part quotation question. When Republicans complained that the money in the stimulus bill, intended to create jobs, instead went to green golf carts and studies about pig odor, democrats told them to avoid criticism of the way they administer liberal gifts. Quote, and give the complete reference for the verse in which Paul says something similar.
Favorite verse from Corinthians Vincent - 2C1:10, Brian 2C4:18, Brandon 1C15:52
