The phrase is often mistaken as scriptural, but it appears nowhere in the Bible.... A variant of the phrase, however, can be found in the Quran

The phrase originated in ancient Greece and may originally have been proverbial. It is illustrated by two of Aesop's Fables and a similar sentiment is found in ancient Greek drama.


Our religion goes way back ... GR! didn't say it was in the Bible.

Another example of Turks, et al., copying us. :roll:

He referred to it as a Christian value. It's a Christian value that has no expression within the bible. I guess you can claim than any number of proverbs are Christian values as suits. How does 'beware Greeks bearing gifts' sound ? That also has no expression within the bible. Christian value maybe ?

Incorrect. It's just a general purpose philosophical value with no relation to Christianity.
