What is a gaz? Besides a Russian automobile manufacturer? And their cars most certainly have bodies.

Ask other rich like you if they want to live in a world of no money. Of course they'll say no, what do they have to win? They have everything they want.

Actually, ask anyone in the world who isn't part of some weird religious cult and they'll say that's insane.

You still use money, dont you?

As show previously the way you claim to understand the purported words of Jesus are often demonstrably inconsistent with those very words.

"your spirit comes out of your body with his soul,". "his soul"? Who's soul is that?

In a world of money you'll never have a democratic election and the world will perish. Rich and their money own the medias and they use it to get more rich. What they want is to elect politicians who will do nothing against inequalities. Their medias manipulate the population to elect people that will give rich small income tax obligation, that permit fiscal havens. They cretic socialism who fight against inequalities all year long, they hire stupid people and pay them well for that. Rich have all the advantage of pollution, they makes a lot of money with it, while poor have all the disadvantages, dryness, inondation, hurricane, heat suffering, all that doesn't really affect rich people. When it will be too hot they just build a house in north pole or they'll move where it is good to be when people affected by pollution will die, countries habitable will just block their borders making people to suffer and die as it is now. All that because of money profit.

Don't you agree all religions are evil and should be abolished?

That religion doesn't follow Jesus Christ, they don't even follow their own prophets. They aren't real Christians nor catholics and protestants.

All religions do believe in what is wrong. Especially the weird cult you belong to.

But Jesus told his disciples to take money and to purchase a sword. He never said someone would give them a sword for free.

After alll the whoppers you've told and the proven misinterpretations that you've been shown to make, you're hardly one to find fault with others.

Do you do as you claim your Jesus character commanded and refuse to use money?

He said that to comply with the scriptures, it means that to carry money and have sword is criminal.

Scripture Must Be Fulfilled in Jesus

Luke 22.35 And he said to them, “When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” 36 He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” 38 And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.”

Money won't save your soul, Jesus said that to rich people, you can't buy haven with money. What you can buy with money in this world is to sit confortable on a toilet but after that the toilet will swallow you.

These verses say that using money is criminal.

ISV Luke 22.36 Then he told them, “But now whoever has a wallet must take it along, and his traveling bag, too. And the one who has no sword must sell his coat and buy one. 37 Because I tell you, what has been written about me must be fulfilled: ‘He was counted among the criminals.’[q] Indeed, what is written about me must be fulfilled.”

It is to comply with Isaiah, 53.12, Jesus always said that prophets supported him

So your Jesus character commands people to accept money in selling things and to use money to buy things.

Is there anything else you're confused about? You still use money, right?

When the verses say don't use money because it is criminal, you cut don't and because it is criminal, and you say it means use money.

No, your Jesus character from your bible novel says it. You even quoted him telling people to buy and sell things.

Did you really misinterpret your own bible so badly that you thought your Jesus character was saying the use of money is criminal?

Did you really misinterpret your own bible so badly that you thought your Jesus character was saying the use of money is criminal?
That the way you see these verses, you cut Jesus saying it is criminal.

Luke 22.35 And he said to them, “When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” 36 He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” 38 And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.”

And your Jesus character had a treasurer, right? And you use money, don't you?

Did your Jesus character tell the apostles to not use money in a world of money? Do you think you're an apostle or something?

That still does not say that using money is criminal no matter how you read it.

Have you a reading/comprehension difficulty?

No, it says He is counted among the criminals. And that his supports will need to get a sword to fight off those transgressors. Now you need to figure out who the He was in that sentence. Might want to think who "betrayed" Jesus. Of course, without the betrayal, there is no crucification, and thus no resurrection, so how the betrayal is anything but necessary to the story, we will never know.


He was, of course, talking about the hero of the story. Judas.
