“if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”
He told this to his disciples at the last supper. It's in Luke chapter 10 somewhere, but I'm not sure which verse (I am not home...I can't find a Bible here at the moment, or I would look it up quickly).
I believe that a really excellent attorney might be able to argue a case based on these passages, so I agree with you. BUT, even our religious leaders have had strong disagreements regarding whether or not these particular scriptures are metaphorical or literal. The reason that these passages have stuck in my head is because in the past I have read arguments from both sides. I am still confused as to the answer to that debate.
The opposing attorney will surely bring up parables and metaphors.
I would like to see it argued in court. It would be a nice challenge for some hotshot attorney. If s/he won, s/he would be forever famous. Unfortunately, I don't have the $$ to initiate that kind of a lawsuit.
