To a poor elderly person, or one who is disabled, that little monthly check could very well be seen as legislated prosperity.

With such a great wealth divide in this country I dont see any body legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

History certainly tells us how well theories like his were NOT working before 1935. The year Social Security came about.

And what we now have is working? we now have more homeless than during the depression, the USa borrows 40 cents of every dollar. the wealthy have taken their buisnesses & money to other places. The takers greatly outnumber the makers. Places like detriot are considered war zones. The city of detroit erected billboards telling folks enter at your own risk! The USA is in decline and its being done on purpose. The UN and New World Order Agenda 21 plan is steadily turing the USA into a third world country. There isnt now or hasnt been in a while any viable political or ballott box choices. Ill never vote again. Social security is a Ponzi scheme. However Im not referring to some eldelery persons pittance ofa monthly goverment check. You envoking the pity of the poor is a lame answer a poor justiciation of robbing the producers. I referring to the exorbant pay & perks the elected officials vote themselves. The wasted money the goverments spend on wars foriegn aid outside of the USA. That money is gone from the US soil robbed from the US citizens and spent to the benifit of folks that are not productive taxpayers on uS soil.

The original Adrian Rogers piece, which was part of a 1984 sermon, and was also included in another work titled "Ten Secrets for a Successful Family" is quoted below:
You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
legislate the poor into freedom? the U S Counstition guarntees the freedom of the poor just a equally as the wealthy.

I agree with most of this. However a compelling case could be made against point 4. Example- Churm has $12 million. If he divides it and gives Raptor in Michigan $6 million, you now have two wealthy people instead of just one!

I have never heard anybody say we should help the truly disabled. The point still remains it's not the governments place to steal from some and give to others. If you did that, or if I did that, we would go to prison, no matter how good our intentions.

WARRIOR how unlike you to drop an upper case letter in a proper noun. A few others do it habitually, very odd for you, or is it?

Just saying.

<quoted text>So thought answer your question. I believe in the one true God of the bible. I'm talking about the God of abraham issac and jacob. If you haven't got to know him. It's the best decision you will ever make. You see i give God total credit to the reason why i ain't on drugs or drinking. You see i've had alot of friends, family, spouse and kids either all of them have either done me dirty or let me down. Some have wounded my heart. It has taking me years to forgive and pray for these people. I'm nobody's doormat. My God is my rock.
The values my parents taught me were assisted by Religion as a youngster, after that I assumed responsibility for my actions...and my choice of friends. Never really thought I needed a crutch to do the right thing, but we all find our way differently.

What was in that series of post that would prompt that question?

Now if you ask me what my thoughts are on a Baptist preacher that incorporated politics into sermons and then used the same material to raise money.

I have a answer for you.

Newsflash: wealth isn't acquired by "working for it." If that was the case, anyone who has a job would be wealthy.

You always have an answer to a question no one asked and ducks, dodges and lies for the questions that are asked of you.
