If we didn't use money, we would, in our avarice, hoard all the food, or whatever else was the means of storing and accumulating value.  JC was speaking to our intent, not to the physical object.

No we would not.

I refer you to the Potlatch Culture of the tribes of the Pacific Northwest & Alaska, prior to the invasion and genocide by the Europeans.

Gotta throw in another relevant quote:

"They that desire to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men's souls in destruction and perdition."

(Totally from memory so I hope I didn't bugger it up too much...)

Yes indeed, Heaven is for the poor. The Food stamp Welfare crowd moochers and illegals coming in to game the system.

All one need do is show his Snap card, an empty can of beer, or a few lottery scratch tickets that were losers to St Peter to enter the Pearly Gates.

Yes indeed, Lefty Heaven, No Rich Fucks Allowed.  :icon_sunny:
