You will either love Wealth and hate and despise God or you will love God and hate and despise Wealth;
That you will forgive others for what they do;
That you cannot love God and hate your neighbor;
That Your Neighbor is everyone that you come into contact with who has a need;
That the rich who sit and do nothing for Lazarus will end up in Hell;
That anyone who wants to be his follower not just the wealthy must sell what they have and give it to the poor Luke 12: (it wasn't a command he gave to just one person but to everyone);
That the chances of a person who loved wealth of entering into heaven was less than of a camel fitting through the eye of a sewing needle. (why, because they would never be willing to share their wealth with the poor, and only those who were willing would be able to enter into heaven.) -- James Milton Joy, member of The Christian Left
Jesus' commands to love and care for others were given as universals, without exempting any human organizations or institutions. All human institutions, governments and businesses included, are responsible to care for others, especially since individual or private charity can never be or do enough.
The Christian Right has been imposing their twisted belief system, which isn't even based on what Jesus said, on all of us (including our Government through their influence on public policy) for well over 30 years now. Not OK. And we intend to do something about that.
