Scrooge: "What then? If he be like to die, he had better do it, and decrease the surplus population".

Ghost: "Forebear that wicked tongue until you have discovered for yourself what the surplus is, and where it is; It may be, that in the sight of heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than MILLIONS like this poor man's child"

Yes, Merry Christmas to all! Enjoy and treat each other well. "Once in Royal David's City stood a lonely cattle shed, Where a mother held her baby. You'd do well to remember the things He later said...."

Kinda funny how the assholes avoid being assholes for a day or two around Christmas, then go right about their normal asshole business as soon as it ends.

Isn't Christianity a lifestyle?

Many Christians are the cherry-picking type. Taking the parts they like (old testament), and ignoring/disregarding the ones they don't (many of Jesus' teachings in the New testament).

John 2:13-15 1When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

Yet they would have you believe he was a capitalist.

No...moron...they would have you believe that Jesus didnt want business going on in his Fathers House (a holy place of worship!)

Had you posted the REST of the passage everyone would have known the TRUTH!

ASSHOLE!

"16 To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father's house into a market!" 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."["

If you had kept the quote in context by including the next two verses:
16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade." 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me."

it would have made clear this passage had nothing to do with capitalism, other than emphasizing that inside the temple was not the place for it.

The story is recorded in all 4 gospel books, and the others besides John also include,
"It is written," he said to them, "'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it 'a den of robbers.'"


However, John 2 introduces the more significant meaning behind the event:
18 So the Jews said to him, "What sign do you show us for doing these things?" 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20 The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple,[a] and will you raise it up in three days?" 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

That was actually spot on.

Bravo.
