I was thinking about about christianity and was thinking most people get it wrong.......I hear all the time what would jesus do...help the poor...give to the needy.....and whatnot...but would he really? Keep in mind that Jesus was born in a time where people could not rise up from the station where they were born...once poor you were always poor......Can the same be said of America? Jesus spoke about helping your brothers and neighbors...never once did he mention help the poor in China or Africa........it was all about the community in which you were from..and your family. Jesus also spoke about doing your best and doing good works......can that be said of the poor in America? or would he admonish those in America for wasting there opportunies much like he did the jewish priests? Improve your Communities and live as an example to other communities so that they might also rise up from ignorance. I could Quote the Bible but I think you all know what it says....I think Jesus would admonish the poor in this great country and tell them to rise above what they can do.......these people that quote the bible I beleive have not read the bible nor understand what it was that Jesus was all about.....Sad I hear from the government that we need to help the poor......as if there are not enough things to help them in place already. Its sad that thezses people are supposedly some of the best educated in the world but either misunderstand what the bible says or are just manipulating the masses to get a vote. Where am I going wrong with this? Take care of your Family first ...help your neighbor...then community....Perhaps if we did these things our Economy would get better and we would be happier as a people.
