I appreciate your posts as they do give clarity and perspective.
It has been mentioned a number of times, not only by you, that it's not about money etc etc,which I agree,
That said, the world operates ONLY through the NAMES and entities created and accordingly I think most people (going out on a limb here by presumption) have realized, for whatever reason (trials and tribulations) that something was amiss and as such no longer want to have the liabilities associated with something that while an entity was formed via out creation and things exists as they are (war powers, emergencies, vicars of Christ running around etc etc). Accordingly, people want then the lease agreement that needs to be handled by somebody other then them since that is of the world. The lease agreement can be replaced by anything else imaginable, basically living in a world without "money" of any kind and having anything they desire, not because of greed/self/ego, but because of who they are (child of God) and accordingly grateful of all the blessings while always doing what they do for the Glory of God. So, while it is not about the money, since it doesn't exist anyway, there does exist a need to "pay" the rent, utilities etc and to this is what I think people are seeking. As whether it is proper or not is a judgement call which I believe is not for us to make since after all if we are all co creators with Christ then we should have unfettered access to all without delay. John 14:12-14: “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
Perhaps going to the Pope is the appropriate path in the world and since he claims to be the Vicar of Christ then one can only think that if he truly believes it and is his word then he will do whatever we ask of him to do, of course doing in the Name of Jesus. Therefore, again no need for money.
Certainly makes sense if one was baptized a Catholic and later becoming a soldier of Christ at confirmation except we decided to be the prodigal child doing our thing instead of doing the Fathers. Time to go home, kinda like ET, Go Home Go Home
