When I answer questions of a personal/emotional nature, Coldplay.com readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
So, if you'd like to join in, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 200 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before Thursday 3rd February. What do we make of this moral dilemma?

"If your neighbor takes you out for dinner and from time to time, he shares some of his wine with you, does that mean I am financially in his debt? My neighbor is demanding I pay him 100 dollars for all the nice things he ever did for me. Can a person be a good deeds bank account - where you can get cash later for gifts given now? Your wisdom would be much appreciated in this. Thank you! Timmy".

Look forward to seeing your replies.
The Oracle
