"No. You are completely wrong and wilfully so as ever."
You said
"Trade requires a profit. Jesus advised his followers to buy swords."
You linked Jesus's words to profit profit and swords - all in one line
Doesn't really become plainer than that.
You are now using the Gospels to support the arms trade - I really didn't think I'd live to see the day.
"Jesus did not condemn trade."
He condemned the accumulation of personal wealth - he threw those who practiced it out of the temple and he said rich people would not be allowed into heaven - absolutely unequivocal.
