Rabbi Says the Bible Promotes Capitalism. Amen, Rabbi!

Written by Gary North on February 2, 2012

The Wall Street Journal ran an article on the Bible and capitalism. It’s not too bad for a short piece.

I have been working on this since 1960. I am finishing up the final proofreading of my 31 volumes on this. I can say that the rabbi has it right.

  8. I was eating lunch on the other day with my 10
    year old Granddaughter and I asked her, "What
    day is tomorrow?"

    She said, & I quote, "It's President's Day!"

    She is a smart kid.

    I asked "What does President's Day mean?"

    I was waiting for something about Washington
    or Lincoln …. etc.

    She replied, "President's Day is when President
    Obama steps out of the White House, and if he
    sees his shadow we have one more
    year of unemployment."

    You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.

  9. Swindlers and scam artists like those at the Federal Reserve are not capitalists, they are thieves and criminals. To add insult to injury they were working their greedy scam in the House of Truth, no wonder Jesus turned over their tables.

  10. Tired of Lies says:

    Jesus would rail against the tea party members. They think nothing about others just about how they can avoid paying taxes.
    And they think nothing about others just themselves, while Jesus loved everyone, even penny-pinchers.

  11. I look forward to North's treatment of the distinction between "capitalism" and something like "biblical capitalism" or "capitalism subordinate to God's kingdom".

  12. LOL what a tool. The TEA party is for LESS government. LESS spending. It's too bad you have to spend your spare time making insipid comments.
