JESUS CLEANSED THE HOLY TEMPLE!

Greetings fellow followers of Christ,

I noticed that the church I attend for Sunday Service, as well as the other churches I have visited within the past, have been used as stores for the selling of merchandise. You can’t miss the colossal stacks of books and DVDs on the tables or the bookstores, although these are really important books to help you come close to God. But why are the churches being used to sell this merchandise? The bible tells us how Jesus openly rebuked and used physical force among the sellers and told them “My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

Jesus openly rebuked the selling of merchandise inside the church.

Jim and I have been concerned about Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron who are using their church, Living Waters Ministry, to sell various books and DVDs before and after the sermons have taken place.

They both even run an online store for their churches website. We are very puzzled about how they own fine mansions, expensive cars, and expensive suits they wear during the church sermons. We don’t see regular and low income church members sporting these kind of accessories, so Jim and I have decided to have a conversation with the Holy Spirit about these issues. We feel that their is dark corruption among the two leaders, so we trust Jesus to take care of this matter.

In the meantime, we urge all the other followers of Christ to be aware of any merchandise sold in their church, and to take action against these dealings. Would Jesus be happy if he decided to attend Sunday Service and run into a table stacked of books and DVDs?

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all of them who sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Matthew 21: 12-13

  1. Thank you for this True Christian post Brother Martin.

    I think there is a difference between “a den of theives” and selling ministry items in a church. It also depends on where the moeny goes to. If the money generated from these dvds etc. goes directly to the curch and charitiy, I believe that is allowable. Now if the money goes to the pastors personal account, that is a totally different issue. Unfortunately in this day and age a church cannot run without money (rent, lights, heater, ac, sound, etc.) so the money does have to be generated from somewhere. Please correct me if I am wrong, but this is how I see it.

    In Christ,
    John

  3. I think the question is, do we even need a church to follow the word of God? Do we need an alleged holy man claiming to have a special bond with the Almighty to tell us how to discern scripture or become a good Christian? If man has been created “in God’s image”, shouldn’t he have the inate ability to discern these things for himself?

    Roman Catholics believe the Pope is God reincarnate. None of their churches show an image of a living Jesus. He hangs from a cross, done and dusted, never to return. It has been reported that at a conservative estimate, the Vatican is worth more than 500 million dollars in the US alone. (“The Vatican Billions” by Avro Manhattan). Does this sound like a righteous location for the “centre of Christianity”, especially when Jesus never set foot there?

    Most of the Christian churches have been hijacked by a Zionist-Judaic ideology and the myth of a Judaeo-Christian religion that places the Jew first above everyone else. Never forget it was the Pharisees and descendants of modern-day Jewry that played a major role in the crucifixion of the Christian deity. Research the Talmud, the holiest of holy Judaic books, to discover how much Jews love Jesus.
