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.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation ---------- Now tell me how anything in this is incorrect untruthful or does not apply?
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!

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.
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.

<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.

Hey Barney thought i'd give you some news. You say economy is getting better. I say you are so wrong. The USDA just released their last numbers on food stamps. It was 46 million people on foodstamps. Now the new number is 47.8 million people are on food stamps. Do the math, that's an increase. We also got 12 million people out of work. Use some logic. If ecomony is growing as you claim, the people on food stamps would be decreasing and we would have less people out of work. The ecomony shrunk the last quarter. So that blows a hold in your numbers. Face it barney you're wrong and numbers don't lie.
Among the sectors adding the most jobs in February were construction, which hired 48,000 people; health care, which added 32,000 people; and the retail sector, which added nearly 24,000. Temporary services payrolls grew by 16,000, possibly a leading indicator for future hiring. The motion-picture industry added 20,800 jobs.
