Bs.  Charity isn't a supernatural gift.  It's something everybody has the capacity for, or God couldn't require it from us.  I've been in a probably state of grave sin for about 3 years or so no, and I don't have any trouble being compassionate or charitable to people I disagree with.

I don't know about that.  Charity is a very specific type of love, it's God's love.  Completely selfless and giving, only concerned with the good.  In our fallen and corrupted nature, the charity we usually think we have is more convenient love, or the ability to be useful.  It's not *actually* charity.  I'm pretty sure Rich is right.  But I'm happy to be corrected on that one.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
