    “To him who hath, more shall be given. To him who hath not, even what he hath shall be taken away.”

    A biblical endorsement of capitalism, but also of its welfare system. If a disabled person loses PIP, he also has over half of his ESA etc. taken away.

    Now the biblical quote was always very popular with protestants at the time of the Reformation and since, and I wonder if it is still consciously passed on to legislators today.

    “To him who hath, more shall be given, but to him who hath not, even what he hath shall be taken away.”

    The Bible’s connivance with capitalism.

    The poor man shall overcometh the rich man and shall be exaulted in the eyes of the Lord.
    2 Corinthians 13:4

    That makes Goddy a socialist.

    The Bible is a book of contradictions, and each person or sect reads what it wants in it.

    This book looks amusing but I doubt if anyone on benefits will be able to afford a copy:

    The Adulterer’s Bible is famous for its misprint: “Thou shalt covet thy neighbour’s wife.”

    There is one written in nine volumes, it covers everything . The Greek and Roman scriptures are not related to the original primitive christians, as well the roman church is not related to them either . There is a Spanish writer who has debunked it, and Jesus 3000 year before christ is another one

    ==============================================================================

    There are 7,500 interpolations in the bible, as well Josephus was interpolated. None of the classical Roman historians mentioned Jesus. The best translation of the Bible has been made by Nacar Colunga, and it include all the book written after the post canonical ( Septuagint ) The Jerusalem bible is a good translation

    The Jerusalem Bible is Catholic, isn’t it?

    M.R. James edited the non-canonical New Testament.

    Curiously, Spain has always had good translators, that will apply to the three volume of Marx capital, much better than the French edition propagated as the best one by the Marxist Humanist

    Christopher Hill’s The English Bible is an excellent historical materialist history of the English Bible.
