    There are so many parables and verses in the bible that when taken into complete context easily refute the bed wetter lies about Jesus being a commie.

    Jesus taught the world about faith in God, not government.

    I'm not a religious zealot, I haven't been to a church in years, haven't touched a bible in years.

    I just KNOW that God, the creator of all that is, put His Holy Spirit in Jesus and gave humanity a choice to do what all of us know through instinct is righteous.

    You don't have to spend all your life reading scripture, groveling in churches and following goofy people.

    The group that is like the socialists is the Sadducees of the Gospels, not Jesus.

    Rules for Radicals, use the oppositions book against them, for they cant stay within its boundaries. Liberals who hate Jesus only bring up Jesus when it suits their needs. Bunch of fucking hypocrites.

    They will all die. The Book of Acts describes 2 people dropping dead instantaneously for lying that they didn't pocket some of the communal money for themselves personally like a socialist leader.

    Redistribution of wealth is when everyone's taxes go to boarder guards;the military pay, money to make military equipment, VA benefits, food and shelter for military members; the US congress salaries, health ins, and pension; Federal and State workers, benefits, and pension plans; public school teachers, police, firemen, schools, libraries,
    local zoos, ICE, and the big one TAX, even those who make min. wage. All gets redistributed.

    The bible is not about money, only when it comes to Jesus paying his tax.

    Also Jesus and his apostles lived off of rich women because they gave up fishing and their families. The first Christian church was set up like a commune.

    Goes to show that Jesus had little use for money, but it was the thought and act that counted.
