In the second chapter of John Jesus overturns the money changers tables. Jesus said He didn't want His Father's house turned into a house of merchandise. So, why do some people continue to sell items in the church? Especially for profit? John 2:13-16 (KJV) 13: And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14: And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; 16: And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
