    • Jesus healed the sick. (and he did it without having to pass a healthcare bill to do it, nor was a single drug administered)

    • Jesus was able to give his life for us because fortunately Mary didn't have an abortion to hide the unwanted child.
    • Jesus fed the poor on his own dime. (he didn't levy taxes on the disciples to feed them)

    • Jesus told the rich man to give up his possessions (including his big screen TV and gulf stream jet) and follow him but did not force him to.

    • Jesus not only asked people to pay taxes but paid taxes himself... unlike Tim Geithner ($34,000), Tom Daschle ($140,000)
    • Jesus fed the poor with fish and wine. He didn't ask the government to do it for him.

    • GOD created the law of debt forgiveness every 7 years while Democrats raise the taxes every 7 years.

    • Gleaning was taken from the haves by the government and given to the have nots left by the haves for the have nots to do some work of their own and pick them up.

    • Jesus said give the poor big screen TV's and lottery tickets take care of widows and orphans. (what the Church does out of the charity of ones heart)
    • GOD created "tithing" Abraham and Jacob gave a tenth of their belongings to the church.

      Future kingdom (government) ruled by Jesus will be free from war (because Jesus will not listen to the plea of peace hippies and liberals to spare the evil people and will instead bomb the hell out of them and spare only the righteous), ample food, comfortable housing for everyone from the abundance of God's own riches, no sickness or death (with NO Obamacare in sight...YES!!!), justice and security that would put present government to shame.

    Yep, Jesus was a free market capitalist. :cuckoo:

    Almost none of your list has anything to do with capitalism. Did he earn money?

    d'oh!

    Nope. He inherited it from his Father. And the poor pitiful libs can't impose their inheritance tax on him either.:lol:

    Boy, "Christians" are going to have a REALLY REALLY REALLY hard time coping with reality when Yahoshua actually does comes back. They're going to be so confused that it's hilarious. Thank God for the Bible.

    Anyways...

    Using the messiah for political purposes is shameful. So... boo you.

    It's a shame you feel that way. God is very political.

    Yes, I know, if I had it to do over, I might change the title a bit as you are right, some of those things don't exactly fall under "capitalism" per say. However, the content is the most important part.

    The Most High wouldn't have anything to do with American politics or the politics of any nation. He is neither democrat or republican he's holy.
