How some people even professing Christains falsely, deliberately do still overlook that Jesus came to help the poor and needy persons is way beyond me!
Hey we seem all to be able read into the Bible anything you want but the reality, for all of the people who collect the tithe, the poor and priests now they were all on Biblical social welfare, and they were not allowed to own property just as much as anyone on social aid today too.. 1/7 of the tithe was to be given to the poor, and the role of deacons was to help poor people with social aid..
Just wait till many of you guys get to be over 45 and get cancer, diabetes, heart attacks and cannot work and how gladly you will go on social aid..
So do not bash poor people for you will walk in their footsteps next to learn compassion.. I personally in my life now have seen many Christians in churches go that route next .Once Proud Bullies, bashers, abusers included..
