    Hi Zeti; I don't understand your mentioning of Martin Luther and the Pope, in relation to your first point about money? But as far as the creation and use of money; God has put the world's business into the hands of men. From the first pronouncement of dominion over all things to the naming of the animals to tending and tilling the ground; so too the knowledge and working of Government of society.
  • Zeti
    Money was not made by God. Jesus himself, when asked about paying taxes, said 'render unto Caesar which is ceasar's.
    Martin Luther identified the pope
  • A disciple
    It is a very popular notion that Catholicism is the New Testament Babylon; and many have taken great pains to "prove" that. But I think more accurately, it should be likened to the Church in Thyatira; as it is the leadership that is unrepentant and is committing fornication. It has been given to us by Jesus to know all things and to judge; and that our judgment on earth shall be done in heaven.
