I did not wish the last bit of writing to drift into a rant, but simply o highlight the similarities of that ancient temple in Jerusalem and our culture today. They are so similar, ancient Jerusalem being a temple state where the economy revolved around that building. Todays society separating Church and state, but also with a State defining the moral and social and cultural code, often in a clash with its Church(es). A temple of a manipulated culture? Money talks! Its an ancient battle, though today with a State becoming a new temple; a new temple guided by the same political tactics, and agendas that perverted that ancient place of worship.Nothing radical, but simply a different way of looking at a particular passage.
