It's funny that ya'll keep bringing this up. Jesus threw the Capitalists out of the temple. They were taking advantage of the poor to make a buck. Jesus called those capitalists a "den of thieves!"

Not all that funny at all, he was really protesting the Pharises allowing this to go on at the Temple

Funny how some see it as an attack on Capitalism

Paul was persecuted by the Capitalists in Ephesus who made idols out of silver because they were worried that Paul's preaching was going to cause people to quit buying their idols.


WHo perseuted Paul? Capitalists or cronies who used the government to subvert all that capitalists of today believe is true?

You are not very good at getting jesus's message it appears to me

We already shot this down once, but twice is fine with me, what does the above say? That the worship of idols is not the path to heaven, not that trading wiht others or their effort is somehow wrong, which is what capitalists believe

Again I say, you are not very good interpreting the message of Jesus. But that is fairly obvious, for anyone taking is as the Word could not believe that everyone goes to a similar fate.

Whether I am a believer or not, your interpretation is totally whacked, my friend.
