Now here's someone not expecting Christianity to provide a welfare state. Ryan Rodrick Beiler, the Sojourners web editor, calls himself a "freegan" and defends himself from Stephen Colbert. His statement of faith:
Though I'll occasionally supplement my dumpster bounty with a trip to the natural foods co-op for some local produce or organic oats for homemade granola (bring on the stereotypes), I've come to rely mostly on society's waste for my provision. As Jesus taught, "Do not worry, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?'... Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things" (Matthew 6:32). In this spirit, dumpstering's spontaneity is both liberating and satisfying.
