    back in the seventies during the Jesus Freak movement, several business men founded organizations that stated wealth was the result of God's favor .. that Jesus wanted his followers to be super rich ... This was not the same Jesus that told the rich young man to sell everything and follow him ...

    and in regard to the would be genocide crowd:
    Matthew 5:21-22 (KJV)

         Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

         But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca(fool), shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of the hell of fire ....
    (of course, these people will probably say that 'brother' only refers to someone in lockstep thinking with them)

    There are several preachers still running around with these philosophies ....

    Sometime I think Marcion had the right idea ... dump the Old Testament   and just keep the Gospel of St Luke
    (actually Marcion preaching this is what eventually led to the books of the Bible being codified )

    Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
