"the poor always ye have with you" - Poor Believers Prove Existence of God


Poor Believers Prove Existence of God

If you become rich, you will have no need for praying to God so that God would protect you.

You have money to protect yourselves.  Moreover, with money you may even have an influence on the society.  You can have rich friends in the political community.

But if you are poor and don't have many resources to protect you, you need God.  If you are Judaists, Christians, or Muslims, as long as you are poor, you need God in real.

So, God is for the poor and God is expected to save the poor.  It means if you want to know what God is, you have to be poor.  No matter what rich scholars think about God, their understanding of God cannot be deeper than that of the poor.

(If evil men temporarily become poor, they would sell their souls to Satan to be somewhat rich by using dark power of Satan.  So, a poor man here means a man who cannot sell his soul to Satan no matter how poor he becomes.)

In this context, the common object of religions is to remind the existence of God of believers.  Any religions are existent for this purpose.  Because poor Christians should ask God to save them; poor Muslims would ask God to save them, and poor Judaists would ask God to save them.  And, before God, it doesn't matter whether a poor man is a Christian, a Judaist, or a Muslim.  He would simply ask God to save him because he believes in God but not because he is a Christian, a Judaist, or a Muslim.

Conversely, if poor people stop praying to God and believing in God, any religions would be terminated.  No matter how rich Christians, rich Judaists, or rich Muslims practice their religions, if a majority of poor Christians, poor Judaists, or poor Muslims stop praying to God and believing in God, such religion cannot be sustained.

But the fact is that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have survived for more than 2000 years or so.  It tells that so many poor people have prayed to God and carried faith in God without interruption.  And, those poor people have asked God to save them.  If God had not responded to their prayer, poor Judaists, poor Christians, and poor Muslims should have abandoned their religions.

So, the fact that those religions still today exist and poor believers still pray to God through their religions tells that God exists and helps the poor.

However, like in the Holocaust, innocent believers died in various tragedies.  Recently, more than 100 people were killed in Paris by terrorists.  You might conclude that these tragic incidents tell that God does not exit and does not help believers.

But still poor people must think that though they don't know why God had not save those victims, all they have to do is still ask God to save them.

Indeed, God is the Creator of human beings.  He gives life to a man at His will and take away life from him at His will.  God is the master of mankind, so that He can treat any man according to His plan.  But still God is merciful and wants the poor to ask help from Him.

From the beginning, it is so mysterious why God created mankind on the earth in the universe.

Only through the relationship between a poor man and God, the answer to the mystery may be revealed.
