Stu: I went back and read Matthew 10:34 again and I see what you mean. Jesus seems only to be about setting in place an economic system to bring parity and equity back to the masses. How could I have possibly overlooked that all these years? By reading past verse 35, that's

Qx: And do you feel that this system that Jesus advocated is capitalism? There's plenty of Christians who believe that it could be quite the opposite. Even the pope has said a few things about the current economic system. Liberaton Theology is one attempt to address the problems brught about this current system of distribution and it sure seems better than most US-based fundy ideas of altruism. Any thoughts anyone? Does anyone really think capitalism can pull humanity through?
