Some people believe that there should be no rich people in the world as long as there is poverty in the world. Christians believe in helping those who are less fortunate, because of religious teachings such as "If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need, how can the love of God be in him?" They believe that everyone is equal and that we should help each other and share the wealth as it belongs to God. Most Christians would agree with the statement as the teachings of Jesus say that we should help each other. Jesus said: "The man with two tunics should share with him that has none, and the one who has food must do the same."
Viewpoint on the Presence of Economic Classes in Reference to Cristian Beliefs The church teaches Christians to believe if you have money you should use it to help people who aren’t as well as you, and to help rid the world of poverty. Christians believe people who are rich enough to share their money for helping people but don’t are wrong, and they will be judged before they enter heaven by God. Some Christians would agree with this because God give Moses the Ten Commandments and they were rules for us to follow and help one another. The rich man is one example of this because he did not use the money he had to help the beggar who lived outside his gates, so he was sent to hell. Some Christians go and sell everything, and become poor and follow Jesus as they believe as long as there is poverty they should not be rich as it is unfair for the people who are poor.
The bible teaches us that we cannot have genuine love for God if we are ignoring people in need at the same time. (John 3:17) We are taught to help the poor so that they can continue to live among us .We must help them, not exploit them. (Leviticus 25) Christians believe that God will judge them on whether or not they helped the poor. This is shown in the parable of the sheep and goats (Mathew 25). God says that when man helps one of his least important brothers they are really helping him.
Additionally, pray about what you want to buy. Don’t just go out to buy something that you think you may want, go out and buy something that will benefit the kingdom of God here on earth. The bible has a lot to say about how God wants us to use our money wisely. I have just enough information to analyze what God wants me to do and to be a financially sound Christian.
Christian Views on Wealth And Poverty In the following essay I will include and discuss the Christian views on wealth and poverty. I will also include why there is need for world development, and I will also explain the work of one Christian agency working for world development. Christians believe earning money should be done in an honest work style. They believe earning money should not take over there lives as it says in Mathew 6:24 “You cannot serve both God and money,” Here it tells Christians to not allow money to over power their lives and they should stay loyal to God. Christians usually do not approve of occupations, which exploit other people or cause harm such as gambling.
Wealth and Poverty in the World There should be no rich people as long as there is poverty in the world. There are many different views on this statement within Christianity. Some are against it and say that it is fine to be rich as long as you five a portion of your money to charity and do not become gluttonous. But others say that people should share everything they have with one another and that everyone ought be equal. 'The Tribe' is a Manchester based Christian rock band.
Christians' Beliefs About Their Responsibility for Other People Christians are taught to be responsible and compassionate towards other people throughout their lives. To do this they must respond to the world we live in today. Even though the bible teaches us to treat all people as equals, our world is still divided. There are poor people, there are people that live in absolute poverty, and Christians are taught to do all they can to help this. Any wealth they have they might acquire, should be shared with those less fortunate than themselves.
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied.” Luke 6:20. Having examined all the opinions above, I believe that the rich should not give up all their wealth in service of the poor but should help them to increase their standard of living and to provide them with a better life through charity work and the improvement of certain policies concerning the poor. Many of the rich are born into families that owned great amounts of wealth and that they don’t have to work. I agree that this is unfair to people who work hard day and night yet don’t earn a sufficient amount of money but that’s part of life and possibly part of God’s plan.
This would mean a lot of money being donated, but if you have the responsibility given to you by your God to look after your neighbour you should obey with no reluctance. That is, if you are truly religious. The religious people would fund-raise and donate. 'Everyone is responsible to help the poor' Any religious person should automatically agree with this on the basis that many religions state that those who follow its teachings should give to the poor, let alone just normal people with no particular beliefs. This particular phrase also says that you have a 'responsibility' to help the poor, and if your God gives you responsibility for something you should carry it out without question let alone doubt.
If we don’t share then we are proving that we don’t care about what Jesus says and in the end what we have had is all we will ever have and that this won’t be any use to us after we are dead. Christian Churches all over the world teach this message about the importance of sharing and that if we love God then we will love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. Jesus used the story of the “Good Samaritan” to make it clear that when He says neighbor he doesn’t just mean people we like or know. All of this means that we shouldn’t just give to people who are like us but that we will be
