Issue of Rich and Poor: the Universal Underlying Factor

When you are poor and see a rich man having big money, you may like to attack him to steal money.

But in most cases you don't.  But why?

Laws and regulations might stop you from committing such a crime.  Or ethics you have been taught in society since your childhood might stop you.  Or your own inherent sense of justice might stop you.

But even if you don't respect laws and regulation, ethics in society, and your own sense of justice, you might not dare to attack the rich man as long as you are an honest Judaist, Christian, or Muslim, since the religions forbid such a sin.

But if you don't respect any religions, you would not attack and rob the rich man of his money so long as you are afraid of God.

But if you don't ultimately admit existence of God, teaching of God, and power of God, you might attack the rich men for you to be rich while making the rich man poor.

Put extremely, all the rich men today living have done similar things to attacking some rich men to steal their money.  Put extremely, they have also become rich by duping or neglecting poor men or by even attacking and robbing poor men of whatever money they had.

The ultimate question a man should face is which his becoming rich would rejoice more, God or Satan.  And if he doesn't mind disappointing God and satisfying Satan, he would surely to be rich by sacrificing others.

Fair competition is a trick.  It is a concept used by rich men to justify their wrongdoings.  No matter if competition is fair, a result should be also fair without causing a gap between winners and losers.  Self-responsibility is also a concept coined by followers of Satan to justify their negligence of poor people.

From the beginning, if human beings think about God all the days as God wishes, they would have no time to think about how to get rich.  If all the human beings think about God all the time as God wishes, there will be no rich men, no rich countries, and no material riches in the human world.  In this context, poverty can be measure of piousness of human beings.

Looking at history in a longer term, it is poor people that changed society and the world.  Every critical war and revolution was decided by movement of poor people, and every major religion spread first among poor people.  Every scientific and technological breakthrough was carried out by poor men.  It is because poor men can be more blessed by God.  Without this interference by God to the human history through poor people, the human world must be a kind of hell today with rich men suppressing, abusing, and controlling poor men without restriction in poor conditions.

The issue of rich and poor is the universal underlying factor of every problem in the world, since it is directly related to the relationships between mankind and God and between mankind and Satan.

Rev 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
Rev 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
