> I am just referencing from a post above about the common misconceptio that most Christians are conservative. first, God is not conservative or liberal. I belong to Sojouners, a site that believes Jesus and God's messages are about social justice, and in being responsible for one another, as well as for the environment and planet. There are over 1500 references in the Bible to calls for social justice. Think of the scene when Jesus was smashing the tables of the moneychangers, disgusted at their love for money when so many people went without. Jesus would rather be with the poor, sick, hungry...with the prostitutes and beggers in the slums. Jesus was disgusted with decadence and greed..and love of money. He was the first to speak for the poor. He detested violence and war.I will write more of this topic with direct references, but it is fair to say you most likely would be closer to Jesus and God, and find them spreading their love in a slum in Calcuta then on Wall street.

You wrote,[...scene when Jesus is smashing the tables of the moneychangers, disgusted at their love for money...].
I am unsure as to what you are wanting to mean by posting that. If you could post answers to the following, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
A. Who were the moneychangers?
B. Why were they changing money?
C. does it say in that scene that Jesus said that the moneychangers loved money?
D. If so, could you cite such?
E. Does it say in that scene that Jesus was disgusted? If so, could you cite such?
F. Could there be a meaning unbeknownst to you that the passage concerning that scene could mean to the Jews?
G. Do you think that Jews could be sterotyped in an antisemitic way by some reading what you have posted about that those in question {loved money]? If not, why not?
H.Are you aquainted with the historical uses of the passage in question toward Jews during the inquisition and the years from 1933 to 1945?
k. redacted by respondent
