Jesus, Money, and Mike Tyson

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : January 30, 2007

Three interestingly inter-related quotes:

“When Jesus comes back, these crazy, greedy, capitalistic men are gonna kill him again.”–Mike Tyson

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”–Jesus of Nazareth

“Two feet can only walk one path” — Muslim African Proverb

    It seems strange that someone like Mike Tyson can complain about the capitalists, as if he weren’t in their midsts given the fact that his lavish spending bankrupted him from an estimated $300 million lifetime earnings.

    I was very surprised when I stumbled upon that quote. It isn’t the sort of thing I’d ever expect to hear from Mike Tyson. Perhaps the website I found it on is in error? At any rate, the notion that Tyson said those words makes them all the more interesting.

Got something to say?
