    GOD SAID SHARE THE WEALTH.

    1 John 3:17-18
    But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.


    Acts 11:27-30

    Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). So the disciples determined, everyone according to his ability, to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.


    Proverbs 21:13

    Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.


    What Does the Bible Say About Sharing Wealth?

    Yep...

    And thus why most with money donate to charities; Sit on philanthropic boards; etc...

    Where does it say that man must give the money to a third party (like government) so THEY can help the poor?

    Indeed He does command each of us to share our wealth. Where in these passeges does God appoint Ceaser (Government) and Ceaser's forces (Bureaucrats, Unions, and ACORN-like organizations to be the collectors and decision makers as far as wealth distribution? Did God mean for these organizations to get their cut as part of sharing the wealth?

    See, in the USA, we are a constitutional republic with three branches and checks and balances. In that Constitution, we have a First Amendment.

    So, why do you want a theocracy?

    For the record, there is no proof god has spoken to anyone. The bible was written by man who is a known foulable creature.
