You still haven't answered it, ignore Jesus and left wing politics! Not talking about that...

Would Jesus approve of the current system where rich tax dodgers go unpunished and get pay rises while the rest of us get paid the same wage whilst we watch prices rise which is a result of the form of capitalism we have been experiencing. We have created a system that makes big companies and bank "too big to fail", the system has spread greed and the greedy look after each other. What would Jesus have to say about it??

I hate Richard Dawkins... openly with my freedom of speech.

I deny Ignorance elsewhere in my daily life, but there is no use putting words in my mouth... see girl? you're doing it again, trying to sway the conversation with your own hatred of the truth!

which means being generous with your own money, not someone else's.

Um, of which I HAVE NONE, thanks to you and your 'croney capitalist' 1% friends and their racketeering casino called "Wall Street". But, if you'd like to "donate" $100,000 or so to me, I'd gladly use it to help prop up the FAILING system by at least being able to put some money BACK INTO THE SYSTEM, instead of the Cayman Islands.

As it is, I can't afford my student loan. You could take that on for me, too!! That'd be AWESOME! Or provide me with a JOB!!

TheWrightWing is the one who doesn't want to supply condoms or 'planned parenthood' or decent education. You're barking up the wrong tree.

But I get it, here's who you hate:

Atheists
Gays
Muslims
The Poor


How does fascism work? How does fascism silence dissent to preserver 'unity'?

Accuse anyone who disagrees with leftist silliness of: Racism! Hate! which are of course, thought crimes.

"Supply" by force and penalty of law, as if you have a right to material possessions paid for with some else's money.

Buy your own damned condoms, kill your kid on your own dime.

Public school & decent education mentioned in the same sentence favourably?

Oh, komrade, you are most equal.

just don't forget AIDS comes from gay sex


Prove it? It may be more common in the gay community but straight people can get it too...

Also your speech about the polar bears and stuff? Capitalism and the need for a never ending profit margin and unlimited growth have cause people to search for ways to make more money, regardless of consequences on the world.

So back to my original question, would Jesus approve of this system??????????

Crony Capitalism is a feature of the communist form of governing an economy, Wall Street broke records donating to the Obama campaign, and they have benefited greatly thanks to Quantitative Easing raking in Fortunes while Unemployment is still in the stratosphere.

But hey, Obama is for the little guy! The Middle Class! Right?

Keep chanting it.

AIDS arose in the gay community... distinctively in California "bath houses" where homosexuals go to wash eachother.

I asked for proof... Come on guys... I've seen both of your posts before and usually you post some substance and sourcing! You are both still dodging my question!! I am going to ask it one more time and then I'm going to give up posting on here...

Would Jesus approve of this system that rewards the greedy? Yes or No and Why?

In vs.17-22 a rich man comes to Jesus asking how to have eternal life he points to the commandments of which he replies that he has kept them since he was young. Jesus sees he is sincere in his pursuit and loved him by saying the one thing that was hindering him: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.”


Sounds like he wants everyone to give up their riches to me, for that is the one thing that is stopping him entering the kingdom of heaven. Also sounds like re-distribution of wealth, would you disagree?

The fact that our "Father" gave in the beginning ( life.. spirit) and continues to give is why we are also supposed to be a giver at heart. This is why Jesus says that if a man asks for something to give it to him. Being a giver is a selfless act and one that Jesus portrays over and over in His- Story.

I agree with your OP... S & F!!

I'm not an Obama fan, but I wouldn't expect you to recognize that.

So says the story... but that has nothing to do with the OP.

He asking a question. Would Jesus approve of our current system?

I say NO.. he wouldn't and its only a matter of time before a broken system breaks in half!

the topic title is about evil conservatives...

"Why I Think God Warned us About Conservatives and Capitalism"

lets just leave Jesus out of this shall we?

we first must ascertain is the OP believes in Jesus and the Trinity?

but if it was my choice... before it's too late... let Jesus back in our schools and just turn the whole darn school system over to the Church of Jesus Christ and nuns!

Giving is voluntary, having your property removed by force and penalty of law is not giving, an important difference.

Allowing oneself to be looted, too, does not qualify as giving.

Removing property from another person or voting for a legal system which will do it for you (under the mistaken idea that you have a right to other peoples property) is nothing at all like "asking for something".

Voluntary charity is in fact giving, and a good thing.

OK... already stated that the title was a bad choice... My whole point of this is the question I've asked both of you about 6 times now... Answer it, or I will take your silence as my answer and leave it at that.

As for forcing Christian doctrine in schools, how is that better than communism?? I'm pretty sure God doesn't want his word to be forced onto people, otherwise he wouldn't have given us free will... That isn't very Christian of you...

The thread is about the entirety of the OP, not just the title. lol Come on now.

This is a pretty easy 1, 2, 3 kind of thread. You either get it or you don't. I don't understand why you are being argumentative with the OP.

Our politicians are takers.. not givers... pretty much sums it up for me. Its a problem and has nothing to do with our school system. It has to do with self centered crooks creating laws.

Ok so having your property forcibly removed by the rich business and banks is fine when it's done by law? But not the other way around?
