Is the Republican free-market philosophy just what Jesus had in mind all along?

Posted on July 4th, 2011 by admin1 in republican marketing


Jesus had no interest in markets. He was interested in the hearts and souls of men and women. If you understood Christianity, you would understand how ridiculous your question is.

He made it clear, "an elephant has a better chance of squeezing through a pin hole than a rich man has in getting into heaven (being saved)" – Book of Luke.

Jesus never spoke of markets, enterprise, business, or economics. It meant nothing to him.

    I really don’t know because your free-market philosophy probably differs from my free-market philosophy.References : Aubs

    He chased the money changers out.. Christian conservatives take that message as a greenlight to open the Christian Bookstore and Wallmarts on Sunday.References :

    No, Christ’s reign will be an autocratic one. If you want to couch a religious insult as a political question, read up a little on the subject matter first.

    This is politics, not religion.References :

    I don’t think there is anything inconsistent with his message and the philosophy of free markets.References :

    Most Republicans don’t believe in a true free-market. They prefer a market that aids their big business friends.References : http://www.openmarket.org/2011/06/06/wisconsin-proposal-hurts-craft-beer-protects-big-brewers/

    Jesus was apolitical, but he did want people to have morality and to be free from tyranny.

    You fail to understand that Jesus was all about charity, not government welfare. He had no problem with "rendering onto Caesar that which is Caesar’s". Conservatives are big believers in charity.References :

    From my recollections of the Bible. Jesus was more interested in the spiritual welfare of people and didn’t pontificate a great deal on the best economic model.References :
