Isn't that the guy who bankrupted everywhere he went due to over-trading the only commodity he could get his hands on but never actually inventing anything for himself? Typical 3rd world economics. Did you know some of them even buy weapons (such as tanks) then attack the designers (of the tanks) (and the manufacturers) (or their allies) failing to grasp a very basic principle viz. tank salespersons probably have something (e.g. helicopters) (with laser-giuded anti tank missiles) (or drones) and sure enough for each 2,120 tanks sold, which are quite expensive, you could stockpile helicopters and missiles to your heart's content. Especially since you're the manufacturer (and designer) and the goon you're selling to doesn't seem able to understand a) the basic principle or b) the price differential. It doesn't need to be military. The same thing applies to birthday cakes and little candles.

Luke 22:36 Then said [Jesus] unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Allowing the sale of a couple of thousand tanks to one's adversary provides two nice groups for getting clogged up with sand. The cake equivalent would be a pair of chocolate sponges steeped in good quality brandy for which I've allowed an appropriate sum. Insane adversaries however will also require several dozen additional tanks for general marauding; hazelnut fudge is used in my comparison, augmenting and unifying the major components in a similar way. Both the cake I've made and/or any tanks sold boost the finances as shown in the chart.

Soon though nut-bag dictators will succumb to their urges. To kill and to blow things up. "Fools," you can imagine them saying to their non-voluntary yet fawning audiences. "They sold us 2,120 tanks at an inflated unit price nevertheless representing an acceptable return on intellectual capital and now they will die." I'm going with 3 helicopters although one would probably be sufficient, it's not a bad training exercise I've heard, so that's one each for the two columns of tanks and a third for general marauding. Only one missile per tank is required according to the news but I've spent most of the accrued revenue on a good stockpile just in case. Obtaining a tasteful candle-tree and a bulk order of candles will serve much the same function when turning up to eat the cake you'd sold a day or two ago. Jesus was clear that funding weapons is more important than clothes and whereas swords would be enough to address the Roman menace these days we need missiles when negotiating with crazed despots surrounded by tanks. It's just the way it is.

In the following chart my comparison is fairly easy to follow. Revenue from sale of the cake I made earlier (or tanks) has been allocated to a lovely candle holder (helicopter) for 21 candles, a popular birthday request, with the remainder for candles (missiles) as shown. Not enough left for more candles which come in 2 gross lots so from selling the cake there's $14.66 available. This is shown as a residual amount. Sales of tanks and the subsequent missile unit cost gives an $80,000 residual. There's plenty of candles left over (and missiles) with the surplus given in the bottom row because you never know quite how many times they'll be 21 again.

Exodus 15:3-4 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.



Jesus knew about the relationship between weapons and wealth. The capital investment needed reflects investments made for any purpose in a society. For example the French fishing fleet requires a substantial capital outlay but as a proportion of funds available overall is not excessive. Nevertheless a great effort is made by employers to maintain seaworthy vessels even after they've acquired them in the first place and the rewards are considerable. For the less motivated, the ones who just hang around see if they can pick up a bit of work when the absinthe runs out, wealth is not on the table. But these types were not disciples of Jesus who Himself was acknowledged as a skilled carpenter. Bespoke furniture, much like boats, never comes cheap. Visit a skilled carpenter and order a dining suite if you don't believe me! These are the people of The New Testament. Skilled artisans. Employers. They owned their own boats! Through hard work and commitment they prospered.

Luke 5:1-4, 7a It came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon [Jesus] to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
The disciples obeyed Jesus. There were many fish.
What follows reveals a sizeable business venture.
And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them.

And there's the difference between Christ Jesus and Mansa Musa. One send his minions forth in a futile attempt to demonstrate how much better than everyone they, bankrupting everywhere they go. It's banana republic economics seen across the world today. The other promotes sound fiscal policy. Anybody who travels even a little is amazed just how dumb some nations are. These are the lands without Jesus.
