Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
I don't see any evidence he supported the state at all to be perfectly honest. Sure he has plenty of statements on how you should treat your fellow man but not many favorable comments on the state.There is, of course, some connection......
HCC = Holy Catholic Church
Jesus was smart enough to favor a separation of church and state.
This "HCC" should appreciated this.
Well first, I changed my opinion on further inspection in an edit in a later post. After some thought I'm not sure that it was he didn't understand money but that he simply didn't accept it. That it was about your faith and god, not money. Of course, that is not to say he simply could not have understood it, but I feel the former is more probable the later upon thinking about it further.Your opinion......, I feel that it did have implications (separation of church and state).... Try to prove that Jesus knew nothing about money....this cannot be done either way...
You are obviously not a Christian, Henrin
Oh and I'm not a Christian or even religious. That is not to say I'm an atheist as I find those people are making the same mistake.
Still, I'm not sure that Jesus would approve of the idea of organized religion let alone how it has been practiced.

"Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
I don't think Jesus would even vote much less be affiliated with a political party.
