Is the modern church "pastor" the money changer that Jesus cast out of the temple?

(mc) built an un authorized business inside the temple (pastor) made an office of a non existingposition (mc) sold animals for sacrifice that were not perfect (bringing sin into temple) (pastor) sells books,tapes,videos with false doctrines "freely you received freely give" (bringing sin into church (mc) took money from temple that was not authorized (pastor) takes money not authorized from church ( salary, special benefits, tithes) ( takes advantage of church sales tax free , ilegal- more sin in the church) and much more error in the church of men. what do you think?

    The Starbucks and credit card ideas I agree with you on. As far as daycares, could these be legitimate if they weren't for profit, but to provide a real service for the poor so they could work? But I can see how it could be abused too.

    Eric, I would buy Joel Osteen's book from Walmart. But hopefully he's not just selling at his church, know what the Bible says about it. Christ isn't just referring that Bible verse to the sellers but to the buyers also. (Matthew 21:12)
