    The earth supplies enough to satisfy every creature. Some do without and some have an over abundance. It is a fail and wickedness promotes it.

    It is written, "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."

    Raising all the dead? Are you sure that is our calling?
    I never said to ignore the poor, but the Bible is clear
    the supply is endless.

    That's what I said. This kingdom will always have poor and corruption because this world is of the Devil and does not belong to God.

    The problem comes when we attempt to help those in need and find resistance.
    Note that IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD we are the only nation to fight for land
    we don't then physically occupy.


    SOMALIA 2006-? Missiles, naval, troops, command operation Special Forces advise Ethiopian invasion that topples Islamist government; AC-130 strikes, Cruise missile attacks and helicopter raids against Islamist rebels; naval blockade against "pirates" and insurgents. SYRIA 2008 Troops Special Forces in helicopter raid 5 miles from Iraq kill 8 Syrian civilians

    YEMEN 2009-? Missiles, command operation Cruise missile attack on Al Qaeda kills 49 civilians; Yemeni military assaults on rebels

    LIBYA 2011-? Bombing, missiles, command operation NATO coordinates air strikes and missile attacks against Qaddafi government during uprising by rebel army.

    If the supply is endless then why are the majority of the people poor?

    So long as corrupt politics and greed are allowed to rule then there will be poor people. No religion can save the poor from their lot as religion is not interested in solving the problem of poverty (The Bible clearly states that there will always be poor).

    The only solution is for societies to move away from the money worshipping system of capitalism and move towards a society that cares for their fellow man and beast and environment. A society where corporatism has been banished.

    It is an insult to civilisation to have destitute and poor people while some enjoy luxury and comfort. Now before anyone says that the rich man worked hard to gain his riches then I say to you "did he work harder than the bonded labourers of Pakistan or the labourers in poverty stricken countries?

    You cannot serve 2 masters. It is either money or a clear conscience!

    The Question We Should Be Asking Ourselves Is: " Should We Work To Live, Or Live To Work?"

    The God of this world, Satan is opposed. And part of the reason God alows that is so you will not be confused and think this is Heaven.

    Else we would be born on soft clouds with light music playing and have no need of anything and no physical or mental pain.

    The God of this world? If God who created Satan cannot rid this world of this evil entity then suffice it to say that either God allows Satan a free ride or is powerless to rid of him. Either way we pay the price.

    I prefer to blame human greed and not some mythological supernatural entity for the evils on this world!

    Sorry, I meant the Bible is clear the supply of poor people to help is endless.

    Even so; Then we must examine the cause of this supply and rectify it so that we no longer as a society have to live with the degradation of human decency by having poverty thrive within our societies!

    Greed? Stopping greed is not going to stop disease and death.
    Natural disasters? What role does greed play in that? Birth defects?
    Cancer? Loss of limbs? Disease? Aids?

    You would be unable to identify all this injustice if God did not supply
    you with a vision of how things should be.

    Do Goldfish complain that water is too wet and the injustice of not
    walking on land? Only Humans understand that this world is not
    built right. All other animals are oblivious to the injustice of their
    environment.

    Only humans are connected to God and have God-Vision to see Sin.
    You are seeing sin in the world and know it's wrong. You are
    a child of God and it shows, else you wouldn't care.

    Satan chose to serve lies instead of truth. Satan chooses lies because he is aware of where he is going and chooses to reject thinking of the the facts. Fearfulness. God created all, all has a choice. Choose God or choose deletion. Wickedness chooses deletion. God is blameless. The ones that choose wickedness, chose wickedness according unto their own will. Wickedness abides in non existence. God is life and is eternal.

    Not on Earth. With God, yes. But not here. This is not God-Place.

    Greed wouldn't exist without the creator of greed itself, the devil. John 8:44 proves that. "The father of it" refers to creator of it.

    As difficult as this may be to explain to some, God created all and is in control of all. God allows because God is perfect. God is in complete control.
