"I have no room where to bestow my fruits" - Money Makes People Hate One Another


Money Makes People Hate One Another

Wherever you may go, you find rich people and poor people.

There are no countries where all the people are equally rich or poor.  In any human societies, there are rich people and poor people.  Or in any eras in the past there were rich people and poor people.

And, in any societies, to become rich and keep wealth, you have to neglect poor people, commit any crimes, and control society with intention to keep yourself rich.

In other words, most of crimes in a society are rooted in this gap between the rich and the poor or in evil acts and deeds the rich commit to protect their wealth.  And the less the rich have love to the poor, the more they will harm and damage the poor.

The point at issue is that it is not what God expected the mankind to do.  God did not expect that the rich occupy wealth by sacrificing the poor and accumulate wealth by exploiting the poor.  However, the mankind clearly started this mode of living at a certain period of time.

It looks like having been triggered when the mankind started agriculture in a large scale like in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, etc.  And, then it seems to have been intensified by introduction of money.  And, people came to think that it was natural to think hat the aim of their lives was to become rich.   Some people even came to think that being rich was good and being poor was evil.

The first man who has ever clearly pointed at evil of the rich and condemned the rich for their evil ways of living is Christ Jesus.  He even told that rich men would be thrown to the hell after their death.

So, we have to think that God sent Christ Jesus to the human world to proclaim that God hates the rich and does not admit them into Heaven.

The significance of Christ Jesus and Christianity is in this regard: God hates rich men.  Indeed most of tragedies in this world are rooted in the situation that no rich men help poor men or rich men are abusing poor men, or money makes people hate one another.

Luk 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
Luk 12:18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
Luk 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
Luk 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
