Cleansing the Temple.
"Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves. He said to them, 'It is written: "My house shall be a house of prayer"; but you are making it a den of robbers.'" Matthew 21:12,13 (NRSV)
It is of this passage that I think when I enter a church which has stalls in its entry selling books and CDs and DVDs etc..
Haven't they read the Bible?
Unfortunately it is those churches who tell you that every word of the Bible is literally true who do this.
