It is not poverty and sickness that created SIN, It is SIN that caused poverty and sickness, because we really have enough to go round, but for the greed of the rich and powerful;
is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?
Are they not the ones who are blaspheming the Noble Name of Him to whom you belong?-James 2:6-7.
There were rich and poor in the pioneering church, but rather than the rich hoarding, and gloating over the poor with their riches, the scriptures say THEY SHARED ALL THEY HAD EQUALLY.
That’s pretty clear, what they did, isn’t it? Sharing not some, but all, and equally too.-Acts 2:44, Acts 4:32.
Are you still wandering why they are pretending like that’s not in the Bible?
Indeed if the wasteful class system built on greed for the rich by the rich could be replaced with a much more simpler lifestyle where people’s only pursuit is NOT money, rather the developing of characters like patience, faithfulness, humility, love etc what a world we would have,
alas many notable Christian leaders champion the profusely exortic, excessive materialist, wasteful lifestyle which is self indulgence and greed, and before the GREEDY can feel “BLESSED” in their greed, they have to DISHONOR the POOR, this is also their poverty.
Joseph was A SLAVE (sold twice), how poor can that be, right?
yet the Bible says he was SUCCESSFUL/PROSPEROUS (while still a SLAVE) because GOD was with him. -Genesis 39:2.
#THINK ABOUT THAT?!
I’m sure you can tell the difference between blessing and greed, the question is do you like the truth?
