    Damn it - I hate limitations on words.

    What's immoral is those who want to take someone else's profits instead of working for their own profits.

    Any idea how much people who work for "non profits" make? :lol:



    The ones who covet what other people have will say yes it is immoral
    Those who make the profits will say not it is not immoral.

    Me...its no ones business whether i make a profit or not. :fu:

    the finger is on the ones how pass judgements like that.

    None of that says profit is evil.

    HELLLOOOOOOOOOOO, do you collect a pay check?

    THAT'S YOUR PROFIT, MORON!

    Anyone who says profit is evil and yet collects a pay check or makes money IS A TOTAL HYPOCRITE.

    The Patriarchs of the OT WERE ALL RICH MEN.

    Each of these lessons you quote is about valuing money OVER GOD about COVETING. Not about making money in the first place?

    Have you also read what Jesus said about Giving?

    WELL HOW CAN YOU GIVE TO OTHERS IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IN THE FIRST PLACE!

    DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Specific response to your last all-caps rant: Remember the parable about the rich man who went into the temple and paid a large sum of money vs. the woman who paid a little?

    Jesus said she paid more. Why? Because with all his riches, it wasn't a lot to him, although it was to everyone else. The poor old woman, however, paid her last money, which was all she add, although it wasn't a lot to anyone, by any means.

    General, slightly related, question...do you tithe?

    Odd how you liberoidal gasbags have no use for religion or faith until it comes time to lamely attempt trying to beat the faithful over the head with Bible passages, which are most often either irrelevant or taken out of context.
