Jesus never spent money on Himself in any way not allowed. Who gets to police the "common treasury"? Who did it belong to?
The common treasury belonged to everyone in the commune/cooperative, not to any single individual.
The property he destroyed belonged to the owners of the stalls.
And what's ironic is that this same scenario of what belongs to "everybody" vs what belongs to a given individual will be one of the outright outrageous attempts by a liberal government to steal from the people. It figures that you would start by attacking Jesus.
And once again you simply present another unsupported assertion without any evidence or reasoned argument.
I did not attack Jesus but simply pointed out yet again what is actually written in the Bible stories.
I'm surprised you are not familiar with the Rite of Baptism when the infant is washed clean with water and then sealed by anointing with oil.
From the Rite of Baptism in the Book of Common Prayer.
Consecration of the Chrism performed by a Bishop;
Eternal Father, whose blessed Son was anointed by the Holy Spirit to be the Savior and servant of all, we pray you to consecrate this oil, that those who are sealed with it may share in the royal priesthood of Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.
The priest after washing the individual then seals the individual with the sign of the cross on the persons forehead using the consecrated oil.
Each candidate is presented by name to the Celebrant, or to an assisting priest or deacon, who then immerses, or pours water upon, the candidate, saying
N., I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Holy Baptism 307
When this action has been completed for all candidates, the Bishop or Priest, at a place in full sight of the congregation, prays over them, saying
Let us pray.
Heavenly Father, we thank you that by water and the Holy Spirit you have bestowed upon these your servants the forgiveness of sin, and have raised them to the new life of grace. Sustain them, O Lord, in your Holy Spirit. Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works. Amen.
Then the Bishop or Priest places a hand on the person's head, marking on the forehead the sign of the cross [using Chrism if desired] and saying to each one
N., you are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ's own for ever. Amen.
Or this action may be done immediately after the administration of the water and before the preceding prayer.
When all have been baptized, the Celebrant says
Let us welcome the newly baptized.
Celebrant and People
We receive you into the household of God. Confess the faith of Christ crucified, proclaim his resurrection, and share with us in his eternal priesthood.
While Jesus might not have been anointed, I certainly was.
One of the major problems in modern Christianity is that for the most part we never teach the reality of what is included in the various Canons. If we taught the much of what was included as in the examples you mention and in the stories of Jesus arrival in Jerusalem were at best political stagecraft or simply fantasy designed to market a position, we'd have far fewer nutjob fundies.
Christianity was a creation of people hundreds of years after Jesus' death. It has continued to be repackaged and marketed ever since.
What needs to happen but is almost certainly what will seldom happen is that around the age of Confirmation, the early teens, Christian teachers pull off the doss and duff and actually teach and discuss what was actually written and why. The growth of myth found in the stories in the Great Commission or Saul's Trip on the Trip are right there, perfect teaching moments but almost never presented to the young adults at the time when they would be most receptive and still mature enough to understand.
It's a tragedy and one that has and will continue to cause problems.
The problem is the basic flaw in the purpose of the forum that has existed from day one.
You hoped that a reasonable dialog might be possible between those people who are in touch with reality and make evidence-based decisions and those people who are out-of-touch with reality and make belief-based decisions.
Your hope was doomed from the git-go but that does not mean that the effort was pointless. The evidence is that many of the former group still participate while almost 100% of the latter group ran away. There is a possibility though that simply presenting the contrast between the two mutually exclusive approaches MAY have allowed some of the hidden audience to move from being in the latter to among the former.
