On October 2, 2017, 6:00 PM BST Ballsbridge, Ireland, the Irish auctioneers Whytes will be holding a auction of Irish and International art> Some great pieces of work by like of Yeats Marcky Nuttel etc. Flicking through the catelogue one piece stood out Lot 26: Evie Hone HRHA (1894-1955) OLD TOMBSTONE, WEST CORK - the link is below. But it got me thinking is Jesus a good financial bet for the future? What will his value be in 2000 years time,will he still be around, what do you replace him and his contemporaries with? Who knows, maybe somebody will shed a light on things soon

Christ had a problem with "money changers"... so I am guessing "no"...

You may want to short sell stocks in "Mooby's"... just a guess...

The Catholics are big on that type of stuff.
Protestants not so much

Anyway, its just a picture, the artist is the investment

I'd short Jesus and hedge on Cthulhu.

I am a "cradle Catholic"... so I take offense...

Not...

Christ cannot be monetized.

Unless it is "Bingo Night" at the parish...

No Christ can be monetized for example the piece I mentioned above bidding starts £1100. A Jesus Bobblehead yours for a snip at £28.00 quid on ebay. Christ can be monetized and has been extensive - and heres the link to a bobblehead

Just because we can do something, doesn't mean that we should...

Indeed: the branding, marketing, and selling of Jesus is worth big-time mucho lire.

Why else would the Vatican need their own stock-trading department?

Vatican Billions

They used money from the mafia; indulgences; Mussolini, pretty much anything that smells cash.
But don't worry: they use some of that to feed the poor, as was proven when Pope Francis sold a gifted espresso machine, and gave the proceeds to the poor!
Doesn't that make you all warm and fuzzy inside?

Just because we shouldn't do something that doesn't mean we shouldn't.

Christ's teaching are at odd's with modern economic's on almost all count's, actually socialism is far closer.

Treat your neighbor as you would be treated, love your neighbor as yourself, if your brother (neighbor) has no coat and you have two GIVE him the one you are not using.

Go sell all you own, give it to the poor and come and follow me - The son of man has no place to lay his head - no property no land no home, house or furniture.

That is not to say that he meant you to walk out with nothing he meant society to work for the common good - HE is king so these are his government guidelines on how to run society.

Working for the common good, all wealth in common, everyone recieving as they have need, seeing society as a greater self - so no selfish me,me, me consumerism driven by feel good short term profit margin's.

Of course then you have the false preachers whom twist the words of christ, you know the sorts those guy's on TV whom make you feel fantastic but are actually lying two faced self serving wolves in sheeps clothing so rich they have more money - donation money - than a coporate hedge fund manager would know what to do with.

BUT.

There was a guy whom was rich, used his wealth wisely and helped those around him, obeyed the law of Moses/Moshe and came to Jesus asking what he should do to earn salvation, Jesus told him to go and sell all he owned and to come and follow him but he walked away sadly for he could not relinquish THIS world so easily, Jesus like the young man though because he had spoken the truth and did indeed follow the law so said to his followers that it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven BUT for God anything is possible, guess that mean's that young guy is or will be in heaven.

Wealth does not damn you but how you earn it and how you use it certainly can, true altruists and philanthropists have helped many people and society in general over the generation's but there are and will always be more greedy, self serving and false christian's and money men than there will be true humble people whose first priority is espousing the kingdom of heaven (often unknowingly because it is just in there nature to do good and help those around them).

When people are poor and share a common society they are more likely to help one another, when they are rich and set apart they are less likely to see the suffering and would rather shut it out even hating those that have nothing as if God had somehow made them a superior creature to his other children, guess which God see's as a disease in his body on earth, guess which do not get into heaven.

So it depend's what finances you mean, Christ is actually the very best financial adviser in the universe, if he wanted you to have dross he would make you as rich as Solomon but that is false earthly wealth and he gave a far greater treasure, it is already your's but you have to earn the right to partake of it.

Store up your treasure in heaven were it can not be stolen, tarnished, rot or run out.
But store it up on earth, why you and your offspring only live a very limited life, this world is only a temporary state were all money rot's, all wealth tarnishes and vanishes and it is ruled by your enemy.

IT therefore depend's on what you regard as wealth, but remember those tycoon's are actually flat broke and outside the kingdom of heaven on the other side.
