All that I hear on 501(c)(3) radio broadcasts these days are why Christians should support Israeli Jews. Seriously they have almost brainwashed bible believing christians into believing that christians are actually jewish.

Jesus encourages business owners to engage in capitalism. Produce or be gone. Make money even at the exspense of non-believers.



Luke 19:11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. 12He said therefore, (M) "A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return. 13Calling(N) ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, 'Engage in business(O) until I come.' 14But(P) his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to reign over us.' 15When he returned, having received the kingdom, he ordered these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by doing business. 16The first came before him, saying, 'Lord, your mina has made ten minas more.' 17And he said to him, 'Well done, good servant![c] Because you have been(Q) faithful in a very little,(R) you shall have authority over ten cities.' 18And the second came, saying, 'Lord, your mina has made five minas.' 19And he said to him, 'And you are to be over five cities.' 20Then another came, saying, 'Lord, here is your mina, which I kept laid away in(S) a handkerchief; 21for I was afraid of you, because you are(T) a severe man. You take(U) what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.' 22He said to him,(V) 'I will condemn you with your own words,(W) you wicked servant! You knew that I was(X) a severe man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow? 23Why then did you not put my money in the bank, and at my coming I might have collected it with interest?' 24And he said to those who stood by, 'Take the mina from him, and give it to the one who has the ten minas.' 25And they said to him, 'Lord, he has ten minas!' 26'I tell you that(Y) to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 27But(Z) as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and(AA) slaughter them before me.'"


Jesus discourages preachers from accepting payment for giving power to another.



Acts 8:18 Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, 19 saying, "Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit." 20 But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!


Jesus discourages capitalism being practiced within the walls of the church.



John 2:13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. 15 And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade."


Jesus makes it known that you cannot be an evangelist and practice capitalism at the same time.



Luke 16:9 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."


Jesus encourages employees of the state to be honest and content servants.



Luke 3:12 Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?" 13And he said to them,"Collect no more than you are authorized to do." 14 Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages."


Jesus encourages believers with more stuff to give to believers and non-beleivers who have less stuff. Jesus condones socialism.



Luke 3:10 And the crowds asked him, "What then shall we do?" 11 And he answered them, "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."


Jesus encourages believers to be content with what they have.



Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."


Jesus observes that the poor and hurting give more to the church than the rich and content out of hope for salvation.



Mark 12:38 And in his teaching he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes and like greetings in the marketplaces 39and have the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 40 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation." 41And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. 42And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. 43And he called his disciples to him and said to them, "Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. 44For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on."


Jesus foresee's the destruction of the world trade centers.



Mark 13:1 And as he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!" 2And Jesus said to him, "Do you see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down."




Jesus commissions his disciples to begin spreading his New Order of the World with nothing but thier belief.



Mark 6:7 And he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. 8He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belts— 9but to wear sandals and not put on two tunics. 10And he said to them, "Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you depart from there. 11And if any place will not receive you and they will not listen to you, when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." 12 So they went out and proclaimed that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons and anointed with oil many who were sick and healed them.

Disagree. There is a huge difference in people who choose to give to others, and an authority forcing to give to others. Not to mention that socialism just gives all goods to the state to control, the very people Jesus had troubles with.

As well, when the state is considered to take care of others, it leaves the people at the mercy of the state, and to those the state chooses to help. Because of things like welfare and such, people are less likely to help others because they feel if the person was deserving or such, they would already get it from the state.

If he had been in favor of socialism, then he would have said give to the temple so that the temple can give it to those who deserve, or something of that nature.

Good point, but rich people did give to the temple as illustarted in Mark 20:41

IN an ideal world everyone would do exactly as jesus said and share thier stuff with the poor and needy. But for the most part they don't. They'll still give it to the temple though, for thier own selfish reasons. So until they do as jesus said they must still give it to the temple. It is upto the temple priests to not become corrupted and share it with the poor as commanded by jesus.
