    Hi Luke,

    Is this inspired by that Republican woman on the Colbert Report? I must say i couldn't remember Jesus saying anything about "teach a man how to fish" (unless he had a side-job as a Chinese philosopher).

    It was kind of like "Hmm, i need something to supports my party's (not-so-Jesus-like) stance. Ooh, here's a phrase that has teaching and fish. If i say it quickly enough it will sound biblical-ish."

    "The average viewer won't know Jesus never said any such thing – especially if i wear a distractingly ostentatious cross on my necklace."

    Oh, and my entry is 1 and 4. Number 3 is of biblical origin – but not said by Jesus.

    #1, 3, and 4 are the words of Jesus, since He is the Word and everything in the Bible comes from Him. #2 is just an old wise proverb.
