If there is no work or a man can't find work, then just how is a man supposed to eat?<quoted text>
TSF, not going to get into a theological war of words. The Bible does not express if you were welfare rich or welfare poor. It says again If a man doesn't work, he shouldn't eat. That's not a difficult concept to wrap your head around. I will also add that the Bible does state that it's more difficult for the rich to enter Heaven. A scripture many people word incorrectly is "Money is the root of all evil", actually it says "The love of money is the root of all evil." So I think that could cover the rich and the poor. Poor people love money but not enough to work for it and steal and rob and rich people do it on a different level through scheming and wheeling and dealing. We are also commanded to take care of the widows, elderly and disabled, not anyone who is healthy and can work but won't.
You can mince and parse words all you want, that's just my interpretation and you're entitled to yours.
Well I have have got some news for you Ms. Queen Of The Self Righteous and I damn sure didn't have to call 411.
This is what the Bible says about the Rich.....
Mark 10:25 AND Luke 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to pass through a needle's eye, that for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mark 12:41-44 And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, Which made a penny. And he called his diciples to him and said to them, "Truly I say unto you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had to live on."
Revelation 3:7 For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked.
James 5:1-6 Come now you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your Gold and your silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you. And will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. Behold the wages of the labours who mowed your fields which you kept back by fraud, are coming out against you; and the crys of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
I guess all those old, rich, white, racist, evangelical, republiCONS who are so busy speaking from their mountain tops just haven't had time to look down into the valley.
