Yet most of earth's richest people are living in the US.
Christians have to sell those billions $ buildings and start feeding the hungry, I think non-christians are right to rebel because christians are fat with the blood of the worlds' poorer.
But yet, I'm canadian...we are perfect.
I agree give to the poor, this is a worthy cause. In fact there are benefits to giving to the poor, such as God's promise to keep us from evil and he also promises us riches in heaven, so giving to the poor is not just about loving people, there are also selfish benefits too promised by God.
But my quote Q is the attitude that people take, where they look to USA or in fact their own rich neighbourhood and they look upon them with envy, hatred and jealousy. These attributes are not healthy and it seems that today many people have a "bad attitude" towards the rich.
In the old days rich people were well respected as being blessed and people that would be looked upon as living hope that God is good, that he has plenty of resources so that people can be rich. It is also a fact that money is a strong survival instinct, a poor person might look at the rich persons nice car and dream one day of having his own car
. So we can see that being rich is not evil as such and can indeed motivate people, but it depends on the attitude the people take. Obviously not all rich people are "good" and use their riches for evil, but to me these rich celebrities and business people seem an ok lot, they might not be mother teresa, but they are not "drug lords", which is good, it means people can be rich doing business with morality and they do not have to be a drug cartel in order to be rich.
