Who gets to police the "common treasury"?


It isn't about "policing" anything. You're trying to use legality to weasel out of morality.

Phat writes:

Are you thus saying that Jesus was immoral?


I said that YOU are confusing legality with morality. There was no legal framework in Jesus' community. Misuse of community funds was a moral issue, not a legal one.

It's amazing how satan uses you to twist scripture.


Feel free to show anything that I have twisted.

The only satan is within you.

I did not check your full conversation and hope you did not mean all courts.


I didn't mean any courts at all. If you follow the conversation back, we were discussing the community or "commune" of Jesus and His disciples. They were on an honor system.

If Jesus is God, what's the difference?

Who would the Trinity be sacrificing to? Who would the Trinity be a sacrifice for?

I thought the Jews had, what, 319 commandments to follow.


We're not talking about "the Jews". We're talking about Jesus' "commune" - the disciples, maybe some camp-followers. We're talking about how they handled their communal treasury.

Why did Jesus rail against the religious law if all followed your unknown honor code?


Because they're two different things.

Jesus' commune didn't live in a temple.

Then Jesus had no business in trying to show the temple authorities that they should not allow tradesmen near his the Temple.


Non sequitur.

You seem to be having a lot of trouble understanding a simple concept: What we're discussing here is ONLY the honor system that Jesus and His disciples and camp-followers used in disbursing their collective personal resources. Everything outside their group is irrelevant.

Run and hide.


You're the one who's running and hiding. I said that your statement was a non-sequitur. Your proper response would be to show what your reasoning is or to ask me what I don't follow about your reasoning.
